Hello Anne, sorry you’re having such an anxious time waiting for your results. I had a similar experience when I was diagnosed, biopsy and scans confirmed lymph nodes were involved but there was some confusion about areas in my upper spine, even the Oncologist wasn’t convinced by the Radiologists report. I see my Onc at an outreach clinic so she took the scans to the hospital she works at to get a second Radiologist report there. Sadly the mets were confirmed but I had been getting a lot of pain in that area which had been put down to the whiplash injury I had after someone had gone into the back of my car many years ago, I believe it’s typical for mets to go to an area of weakness. Hopefully as your pain has subsided it will be a different outcome for you, I just wanted to reassure you that every effort was made to make sure they got my diagnosis right. Please let us know how you get on, Kxx
Undies were found hanging from trees too! Too big to be mine!
The snow forecast has gone back and forth! It will be what it will be!
Still here, The "grandma gig" is awesome!!
Thanks everyone for the support. Happy to l ast longer on this treatment! This takes me to mid July for next scan. Hoping to make it through summer without needing chemo. FF
Hi Stillhere, what wonderful news, you're a soon-to-be stepgrandma! I've got two step-grandkids, ages 3 and 6, they are a delight, especially as I can enjoy them without feeling any responsibility whatsoever -- hey, there's none of MY genes in there! It's not my fault! Have a great time celebrating, and thanks for sharing -- the more good news we hear, the better!
That's great news FF! Came out of hiding to congratulate you! Don't envy your weather though....today in Sussex a big yellow round thing appeared??? What is it?? We saw our first swallow flying back as well....could spring be here.....for a day or two.
I had my CT scan yesterday, result next Wednesday 😳😳 I've just found out I'm going to be a step granny in the autumn...we'll be celebrating this weekend as its a first so focussing on that news x
Yay, a stable Mabel - great news FF. Now you just need to hunker down and get through the next snow storm ☃️☃️ We’re being washed away in the UK, well the South at least, but a welcome day of sun today and tomorrow, then back to clouds ☁️🌨 Presume Spring will happen sooner or later for all of us. Enjoy the good news.
Ladies, Thank you for the hand holding! Stable Mabel! Plus a little improvement in one lung! Toot toot!
Tatyana, I'm holding your hand and hoping for excellent results. Then you can toot your horn too!
Lyndyloo, We do get a cold winter and I few snow storms. We don't get it as bad as some areas. We have had back to back 24 inch storms. That 4 ft was the most I remember. No need for it to happen again!
Headed out to get some coal. Looks like we will still be needing the coal stove for most of the month.
hi funny face,
i wish you all the best with your scan results,it's always a worrying time but do hope it is good news for you,the weather is very very strange this year and appears to be all over the world ,so not just us ,we have a glorious sun shiny day here ,but bythe forecast back to rain etc tomorrow so very short lived spring.
all my best wishes
Ladies, I might need more support getting through the next snow storm than my scan results. Now saying 8 inches!!
Carolyn, Please dance away! They are calling for 5 inches of snow on Saturday! This is craziness!
Welcome Anne! I have lung mets plus lymph nodes in chest. I've had mets since November of 1995! As of today I'm doing well. (Scan results tomorrow) I live in the USA. I work PT. I pretty much just keep smiling and moving along!
Carolyn did you send those winds across the pond! Sixty mph gusts today! Big tree branch down in front yard. Hoping no trees come down. Still longing for a sunny spring day!
Yes, getting that diagnosis of 2ndry breast ca is devastating, I remember it well, it was Xmas 2016. I had a bit of pain which got a bit worse, had 1 dose radiotherapy and by July 2017 went back to work full time on my feet all day and have continued to work ful ltime. Can't run/won't run most people think I'm old and grumpy. It took me quite a few months to go a day without thinking about the diagnosis but I do now. With bone only disease some folk go on a long time ?18 years. Once I got sorted out in July last year I live pretty much the same as I always have except that most weeks I have a treat or two with the kids. This is actually a life improvement for me.
Go Linda and Nicky! Love hearing those amazing numbers!
Easter Bunny sprinkled snow on us on his way out!
