Meeting you absolutely made my day! So nice to be able to chit chat about what's happening face to face.
I think of the people on here as friends, and I was right!
We can sort out a day next week at your convenience.
Love Rose xx
Hi Rosemary it was so lovely to see you today i know it wasant for long but it seemed like we had known each others for ages hope to meet up again very soon Love Judi xxxx

Hi I am new to the forum. I was diagnosed in Feb after being chosen at random for an early mammogram (not quite 50). I had no symptoms. I am so grateful for the team who have looked after me. My treatment has been quick and everyone has been so kind and friendly. I received the results of the biopsies on 19 Feb and had a lumpectomy and SLNB on 27 Feb. I was told the results on 17 Mar. A 10mm Grade 2 tumor with some spread to 16mm. Margins and lymph nodes all clear. Will start on Tamoxifen after rads have finished.
I start 15 sessions of Rads tomorrow. I feel quite anxious as I have quite sensitive skin and suffer from Fibromyalgia. Hopefully I am worrying about nothing.
I can't believe it is only 10 weeks since I had my mammogram. Everything has happened so quickly (which is good) but it is also overwhelming at times.
I am finding reading the posts on this forum very helpful.
My treatment is at Weston park hospital Sheffield and they do a monthly 'open evening' so friends and/or family can see what the treatment rooms and equipment are like.
I went this evening with my fella for a look around.
Having been through all this years ago I must say there didn't seem to be any difference. There are still cool laser beams criss crossing the room and huge ugly grey machines. But I think my fella found it interesting to have seen where I'll be disappearing off to every day soon.
Hope everyone is doing ok especially those with extra additional worries on top of the routine bc stuff.
Yes definetly cant wait im usually out by 2 most days i seem to be on machine 5 and no waiting ive been straight in see you in cafe dont forget the newspaper!!!!! Love Judi xxx
I'll pop this in here too: Judi, are we still on for a meet up in the cafe tomorrow?
Hope everyone OK on this beautiful sunny morning. Haven't posted for a while as it's all been a bit much ! My 89 year old mum had a serious heart attack so we spent a lot of time sitting by her bed while various nasty looking treatments were carried out. She is home now thank goodness. Certainly took my mind off the BC for a while!
Start radiotherapy on Monday. Fingers crossed nothing else unexpected happens before then - or during! Decided I don't like 2015 much so far but hoping that spring means it will start being good from now on.
Love to everyone xx
Hi Kim (I replied with this message in another thread, but this one might be more appropriate),
I found your threads today, which is a huge help/support for me, as I was just diagnosed this past Friday 4/10 with pretty much exactly what you have and with anticipation of the same treatments.
They found about 3-4mm tubular carcinoma (after an excisional biopsy of a small supposedly benign tumor). It's grade 1 and very slow growing. Since it's such a rare type, I'm having hard time finding any extensive current patient experience so your threads are great!
Even though the tumor has already been removed I'm expecting a sentinel node biopsy and then radiation. I saw you had a node biopsy, I hope it's been healing well. Have you heard anything about radiation?
Hi Ladies just getting ready to go for number 5 session 10 to go no side effects as yet i keep slapping the cream on no pink boob as yet ive got hospital transport this week as i dont drive hubby took me last week but hes back at work now,might be a bit of hanging around but only 2 more weeks to go so will take plenty of mags plenty of people to chat to Love Judi xxxxx
Well done for letting off the steam. That question must be asked over and over, what did we do wrong, why, and when we get a bad moment it hurts so much. But, we get on and there are many people that actually admire us, for our strength, determination, courage and above all for the person we are. The ladies on this site are incredible and just remember you are one of those. Shout when ever you need us. Lol xxxxxxx
Hi Sue my treatment plan was chemotherapy T/C combination also combined with Herceptin as Her2 pos now i am having 15 sessions of radiotherapy and 5 years of hormone therapy(letrozole) i was stage 2 ductal no lymph node involement and clear margins Love Judi x
Hi Rose that would be lovely on Wed shall i meet you in the cafe ill wear a flower in lapel lol i live in Scarborough so not to bad if there is a prob on wed we can arrange another day as i am there until the 27th April Love Judi xxxxx
How about I get there for 2 on Wednesday (my last session!!)? Only day I can do it really, as in manchester overnight Monday and train wouldn't get me back in time on Tues. Or, as I'm not far away from Cott, I could pop up there another day after rads are finished. I would love to meet up with you.
Do you live far from Hull?
Sorry Rose i thought when i read your thread there was another place ie Queens or Castle Hill my brain is frazzled with chemo and everything else ive had Love Judi xxxxxx
Hi Rose im at Castle Hill and my appointments so far are 1.45 my hubby has been able to take me this week but next week ive got transport so when my appointment has finished at 2 i will be hanging around near Transport info or cafe would be nice if we could meet Love Judi xxxxxx
Hey, Judi! You're having rads in Hull? Queens on Castle Hill site, by any chance? What time are your appts? My remaining appts are at 15:40 (except Monday which I changed cos I'm seeing Paul Simon in Manchester, and stupid cancer is NOT taking that from me!), only got 4 more to go but if you're there around that time, shout up- we could venture into that cafe at the entrance for a natter? I'm only 20 mins down the road so can be fairly flexible, time-wise
