Re: Update!

Hi Wizzyden

So sorry you are in limbo at the moment, we all know what that feels like and how our minds play silly games with us whilst we wait for results.

Although I have liver mets I can't say one way or the other whether your pain is liver related.  To be honest I have sometimes convinced myself my liver mets have got worse when in fact a scan has shown they have shrunk.  We imagine everything that aches is caused by cancer and unfortunately we have to rely on the medical team to tell us yes or no.  As you have recently had a blood test can you contact your BCN and get your liver function test results?  It may put your mind at rest.  I also understand what its like to lose a loved one unexpectedly as my Dad also died last October and generally I had to deal with all the paperwork and arrangements even though I still have my Mum and 2 brothers.  Not an easy time at all especially when you are no doubt supporting your daughter as well.  I do hope you get some answers soon from your team and at least know what your dealing with.  Most of us seem to be able to cope better once we have a treatment plan in place.

Re: Update!

So sorry you’ve had no replies. I’m afraid I simply don’t know about the liver. I do know that waiting for results is very hard and we all imagine all kinds of things. The help lines are good and you can talk to a nurse. They are very honest and well-informed. You need proper information. I know from personal experience that it’s really hard but try not to imagine x

Update!

Hi ladies, following on from my post last week about a new breast mass in non mastectomy breast despite bone mets following primary diagnosis in 1999. Recurrence in 2001 and secondary diagnosis in 2005. Had a biopsy but only half of the results back. No histology. All I know is it’s IDC grade 2. Don’t know yet if it’s the same as my original primary. Had a CT scan but no results yet. Am feeling dreadful, look washed out and pallid. Am now convinced I have liver probs as I have upper right quadrant sporadic pain which is more likely a flare up of my IBS/IBD & diverticula disease but I’m going out of my mind with worry. I lost my Dad suddenly & unexpectedly at Xmas and I am sole executor of his estate. And my eldest daughter also lost a baby at the end of 2018! Quite honestly I’m a mess. Can anyone tell me if they think my sporadic pain could be liver? I don’t have any other symptoms of liver disease apart from feeling tired & washed out all the time. Bloods I’m told were ok, but forgot to ask for specific liver function test.  I’m being allowed to remain on herceptin until we know what this new tumour is. I’m just a wreck and don’t know where to turn. Have a great CNS but only feel I can cope when she’s given me a talking to.
