Thank you as well Damara117, I hope you get great results on the 15th September very very big prayers for you and my utmost good thoughts too xx **hugs to you, cobby and all**

Re: Been to my doctors

All the very best, Gemma, for 11 October.  My experience was indeed that everyone was lovely and considerate and treated you like an individual.  I think that must be very hard to sustain but they were brilliant. 

Re: Been to my doctors

Bless you, Cobby.  That's a lot to hit you all at once.  I'll be thinking of you on Monday. *hugs*

Re: Been to my doctors

I absolutely agree, do take care and my thoughts are with you cobby x x x

Re: Been to my doctors

Thank you all the best wishes too you to for the 11th October , it's great to be able to post on here about everything and know someone is understanding what we are all going through mentally, 

Re: Been to my doctors

Hi Cobby, I'm so sorry to hear of your news and my warmest wishes and prayers are with you. I'm new to here too with my appt now booked for 11th october, for right breast lump. I know it is hard not to think about it and I hope someone will be able to go with you, but in the event you do go by yourself I know from friends that the clinics have the most friendly nurses and they are amazing at what they do! I'm trying to be as mentally and physically positive as I can because we are in good times, with great technology and we can be strong and as emotional as we like! You are not alone as I'm sure the ladies on here and myself are here to talk/post to if you want to vent and get those feelings out, it's all understandable, warm and best wishes x

Re: Been to my doctors

Hi, God you have been through a lot so sorry , my appointment is on Monday at 11-30 πŸ™ I can sleep at all at the moment all sort of thaught going on in my head , just got bad news that a friend of mine has been giving bad news about his cancer that there is nothing they can do for him so sad , and I lost my brother three week ago from a stabbing !! So you can amagen the state I'm in about all this . 

Re: Been to my doctors

I had a mass of tissue in my right breast that I wasn't happy about.  I'd noticed it about seven or eight weeks ago and as it wasn't going anywhere, I thought I'd better get it checked out.  The GP got me an appointment a week later which I thought was pretty good going.  

 

The consultant saw me first and then I had a mammogram.  Don't know if you've had one before but if not, they are temporarily very, very uncomfortable!  Then I had an ultrasound (with warm gel!) and  core needle biopsy in my breast lump and in my armpit for an enlarged lymph node that the ultrasound lady spotted.  The biopsy of the breast really stung for a moment or two (manageably so) but the one in the armpit didn't hurt at all.  I was still squeezing the nurses hand tightly!

 

The whole appointment was getting on for about two hours so do allow that amount of time.  

 

I get my results on 15 Sept.  Sorry to hear your hubby can't make it.  When do you go for your appt? I will think good thoughts. πŸ™‚

Re: Been to my doctors

Hi damara, thank you for replying sorry to here your going through it as well , did you have under arm pain or something else, Hope you don't mind me asking ?? My husband can't come with me and don't know anyone because I'm new to the area so will be going alone . πŸ’—

Re: Been to my doctors

Lots of hugs, Cobby.  I'm new on here too and I think I'm only a week further along the process.  It's all very scary and worrying and the wait does seem like forever.  If it's anything like my breast appointment, everyone will be really lovely and it will be very thorough.  Do you have anyone to go with?  One of my friends from work was going to come with me if my husband couldn't make it (he could, love him).

 

Been to my doctors

Hi, I have been to my doctors today about my under arm pain which I posted on here a few days ago my doctors thinks it could be a infected lymp node but have a appointment with breast specialist on Monday , really worried now , it seams a long time to wait but I know it's not !! But then again don't want it to come around as well , I hope you all know what I mean 😞 , can't get it out of my mind .
