WONDERFUL NEWS Blackcat so so pleased for you, ENJOY LIFE like a queen
biggest hugs Tili 🙏🌈🙏🌈
Hurrah ! A MASSIVE weight lifted, gosh thats great. My 'maturing' scar tissue certainly kept changing for years. Thanks for updating 🙂
Just thought I’d pop in and update, had the ultrasound this morning and everything is fine..phew! The area I can feel is scar tissue. She said scar tissue can change shape and get firmer as it matures and can also remain tender for many years.
Feels like a mountain has been lifted from my shoulders and I can now get on with living and not have those constant dark thoughts.
thanks again for your kind words and support xxx
Thanks for the support Charys and yes it’s unfortunate I’ve got to wait for the ultrasound. I will update this thread once I know more.
Oh what a shame they couldn't do the ultrasound today - it still leaves you in scanxiety/limbo land 😞 It is certainly good news that she isn't overly concern but of course that won't change the feelings you have about 'whats ifs'. Use this forum as a place to blast out your thoughts and chat, to while away that awful waiting period 😞
Just back from my appointment with the breast clinic. The dr (same one that did my surgery) had a feel, she said the firm area feels like scar tissue. She also felt the nodules and has booked me on for an ultrasound to check the area and lymph nodes. Overall she wasn’t overly concerned so I’ve just got to wait now till the 7th Of nov and try not to panic and over think things in the meantime.
Was it at the Breast Clinic, or GP though that you were checked last time ? It must have been something benign, their reason given, otherwise you'd have known much more about it. So what you are feeling now feels similar but more severe - so it could be possible that its 'more of the same' of the benign issue from last time.
I know you must be feeling really scared, I can well imagine the thoughts going through your head tonight - but you are doing absolutely the right thing and I'm really hoping that tomorrow you get a nice clear answer which puts your mind at rest. Its always hard answering posts like this, where the worry must be overwhelming and yet there is nothing that any of us can do to make that fear disappear for you, but I just want you to know that I am thinking of you and truly hoping that there is nothing there which needs more treatment. You have already gone through so much, which shows your immense courage, so I know you will get yourself into and through that appointment tomorrow. Remember, no matter what, you will be home tomorrow night and having your tea/dinner as usual.......with a much clearer picture. You offload here as much as you like, write it down and get it out 😞 Please do let me know how you get on. x
So last Sep I felt nodules, small knobbly lumps. If you imagine running your fingers over a bag of frozen peas that’s what it feels like to me. I’m sure they said it was just glandular breast tissue.. maybe Ive got that wrong. 🤷🏻♀️ I can still feel them and the area is tender.
Oh Blackcat - I can understand why you are so scared, scanxiety is the WORST, and after having gone through 'the works' having something that needs checking come up must be creating super tension. You are on this though, and being super vigilant, and thats really good that the appointment is tomorrow. Was it last September that it was checked at the clinic and seen as glandular tissue ?
Hello lovelies.. trying not to panic but you know how it is…
I was dx in October 2019 left breast, stage 2 her2+. Chemo, lumpectomy, rads herceptin.. the works!
So I’ve been having some pain recently in my left breast towards the outer area near armpit. The area feels firm and tender and there are also some (what I can only describe as) knobbly bits! I did had the knobbly bits checked out last Sep and was told it was just glandular tissue. Anyway this morning I asked my gp to have a feel as I didn’t want to call my breast nurse unnecessarily and she agreed that the area is firmer and to contact breast care team. Fortunately they have a slot tomorrow so at least I don’t have long to wait but jeez the scanxiety
… sorry just need somewhere to offload! Feeling scared 😟
