Re: Appointment on thursday

That is very very good news Jaybee, I had a feeling it would be from how the consultant had responded. Thanks for coming back and updating, as it's always nice for us to hear the end result. All the best to you too x

Re: Appointment on thursday

Another positive post guys. Nothing abnormal found. I just have lumpy boobs and nothing to be worried about. The armpit lump is normal skin. Probably muscle i am feeling. Just wanted to let those of us waiting for scans etc that its not always a bad outcome. Thank you so much for the support guys. Was good to find a place where you understood how worrying it all can be. Wishing all you girls all the best for the future. Take care guys xxx

Re: Appointment on thursday

Hi Jaybee,

 

There may indeed be 'something you are feeling'  but that something , to a skilled consultant , may not feel like a 'sinister something'. I think if you have your ultrasound and mammogram and it is deemed clear, then ask what it is that you are feeling and literally point it out. Hopefully you can get to the bottom of it, as you are going to worry about it after being sent away if nothing Is found. X

Re: Appointment on thursday

Good luck for today jaybee xxx

Re: Appointment on thursday

Thank you charys for your encouragement. I have to try and stay positive. I dont know if i feel any better though after today. The practice nurse felt it as did my gp and my husband and i can still feel it. I know the ultrasound and mammogram will shed light on what it is. Now i am thinking i am going crazy and what if nothing shows up when i can still feel it!! Aaaargh nothing to be done but wait for sat to arrive. Thanks again for the support x

Re: Appointment on thursday

Oh Jaybee ! What an absolute nuisance, that isn't usual to have to come back for a mammogram or ultrasound on a different day, must have been a staff shortage or something. If it helps you....I had mine done on a Saturday, so there won't be significance to that. The thing is the consultant would be remiss to not have you have a mammogram and ultrasound after you have been referred, manual techniques for locating anomalies aren't that accurate, otherwise mammograms and ultrasound wouldn't be used ;o) There could be something tiny that they miss just by doing a physical examination, and if they were to send you away without the proper checks that would be very poor.

 

It s encouraging though that nothing could be felt, hopefully the mammogram will just be to put your mind at rest.

Re: Appointment on thursday

Ah worrier mum that is such good news. So pleased to hear. I was wondering how you were getting on. I am still in limbo. Had my appt and consultant asked questions then put me in a room and examined me and said he couldnt feel anything but would book me for mammogram and ultrasound as he couldnt see what was inside obviously. He then said come back on sat as we have no radiologist today! I am confused as if he couldnt feel anything worryin then why do i need to go back and why sat! It seems an odd day to go! Hey ho more waiting. But cant be helped! Chuffed about your good result though! Yay xx

Re: Appointment on thursday

Wishing you both all the best for your appointments tomorrow. Good news and we love to hear it, something that needs treatment and we will be here happy to listen and support if we can. X

Re: Appointment on thursday

Will let you know. 2 more sleeps and we will hopefully be breathing big sighs of relief. Although dont think will get much sleep. Stomach is churning. Take care. I have a 10 year old son so know how hard it is to have to put a brave face on xx

Re: Appointment on thursday

Thanks jaybee45,
Sending positive thoughts for Thursday, let me know how it goes. My appointment is at 3.30 so goodness knows what state I'll be in by then : /

Re: Appointment on thursday

I completely understand my friend, you won't lose your mind, I promise but I know how it feels when you are in such turmoil that everyday life feels extremely hard. I don't have young children anymore, but I can imagine that it must be incredibly hard to hide your feelings and try and be normal for them when you feel you are burning up inside with anxiety. It is a hideous situation to be in. There is a younger womens section on this forum, for those who have little children and maybe it might be worth posting or reading on there as well? I can only reassure you that no matter what the outcome, benign or not, to your breast clinic appointment, things will get easier for you. You can tell your children that Mummy isn't feeling very well, and sorry for being a bit cross, it isn't anything about them. You don't of course need to tell them anything about the reason, you could just say you have a bad tummy or something x

Re: Appointment on thursday

Thank you Charys,
It just helps to know that people like yourself are out there and completely understand the anxiety! Feel like I'm losing my mind.
I have two young kids 3 & 7 and I feel like I'm snapping at them all the time, which is making me feel awful cos they have no idea why mummy's in such a bad mood.
Thanks for your reply it really helps xxx

Re: Appointment on thursday

Hello there worriermum,

 

So many of us here know that feeling, can't think of anything else at all, terrified, emotional, can't concentrate....its entirely understandable that you are feeling such awful anxiety. However, you are absolutely RIGHT to be bringing it to the attention of your doctor, and to also attend a breast clinic appointment. What would be even worse is to leave whatever you have noticed, and then you could either have months of even worse worry or leave something that needs treatment. We are all told to be breast aware, and that is for a reason, so that if there are any more sinister problems they can be treated quickly and effectively. As you will probably know from reading on this site, 80 percent of breast lumps are benign, so it is not a 'given' that everyone who is sent for checking at the clinic has breast cancer......they are there to diagnose benign as well as non-benign conditions. I can only sympathise with your situation, having waited for that clinic appointment myself and send you good wishes for a good outcome. You can talk to us on here about anything worrying you about the appointment, we are happy to listen. x
