Re: 1st mammogram after bc found lump in other breast

Had my appointment letter on Monday for my first mammo after op last April. It's Friday next week and I feel thoroughly sick and in a dark place at the moment. Trying very hard not to let it worry me and not to scream at my family who don't have a clue about the emotional roller coaster I'm on at the moment. For them my glass is always half full! Really hard to keep smiling just now.

Oooh we all feel for you and hope it will turn out ok.

 

My cats were so gentle after my op. So careful when approaching that side, instead of stomping all over the duvet as they did before!

Re: 1st mammogram after bc found lump in other breast

Thoughts are with you Venice25.  I went for my first post-op mammogram (just over a year after my op) 2 weeks ago and whilst the surgeon couldn't feel anything, he said they wanted to compare the mammogram with my last one and he'd write to me - very careful with his words but clearly not able to give me an 'all clear'.  He also asked me 3 times if I was taking my tablets (Anastrazole) and gave me my next appointment in three months rather than the usual 6.  Given that I never had a lump in the first place, saying he can't feel anything didn't provide much comfort and I now feel back in limbo.  Just when you feel you're back on a steady path, this ****** illness goes and sends you round the rollercoaster again!

 

I'm trying to keep things shut away and not worry about the what ifs as they might never be, but like you the occasional wobble happens.  Glad to hear your dog is so tuned in, I'm sure cats and dogs know when we're not well.

 

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and hope you get a result soon. x

Re: 1st mammogram after bc found lump in other breast

You're welcome Gill, this cancer lark is a lonely dark place at times, that is why this forum is so good. Dogs just know when we need a cuddle. My lhasa, Izzy has been amazing and not once jumped up at me since I had the SLNB back in October she just snuggles up to me. Izzy for about 6 weeks kept licking my other halfs chest, we didn't think anything untoward just thought it was a new craze. He had a heart attack in July, now fully recovered, and she has not licked his chest since. We are convinced she knew it wasn't working properly and hence licking to try to heal him. Stay positive and let us know how you get on. X Stella

Must be really scary. The waiting as I'm sure you know is the worst bit. Sounds like the surgeon isn't too concerned. Hang on in there and I am sending lots of positive thoughts for a good result, Stella x
