Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Hi everyone

I'm not good with computers and fumbling my way through but so glad I found you all. Just been diagnosed and feeling a bit spaced out. Can't sleep so up reading all the comments. They're very helpful. Thanks




Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Things seem to be moving quickly for you.

Realised I forgot to say I'd take a cancellation(siggh)


When I first knew It didn't feel as if it was me, then last week when I was sent for a 2nd biopsy I was told I probably wouldn't need it hit me,

The way I felt was a bit like that Macmillan advert where people have diagnosos and then, in odd places it hits them.

Now waiting for  a date fro my lymph nodes.

Tomorrow am going for an introduction/counselling at a charity called Haven. they only have 3 branches - Hereford, Leeds and London.

Someone highly recommended them to my son when he told her about me. She went to the one in Leeds. I am going to the one in Hereford .

Suspect it will be emotional, but feel it will be good to talk without my husband listening to everything I say which happens at the moment.



Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Hi All

I am feeling  lot calmer today after meeting my surgeon, where she offered me immediate reconstruction and a very good prognosis, although will know more when they check the Sentinal node I should have my surgery straight after Christmas so am determined to enjoy the next  few weeks. You are right Maggie I have learnt many things about my breasts and medical jargon in the last few days

Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Hi Val - I was diagnosed on 20th Nov and like you felt fit and healthy... its a huge shock so take your time and you are not on your own. Karen x


Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Hi nelliealice,

Its a club with the best members. 

This is the place where we all know how you feel.  I got my lump checked 6 weeks ago and hopefully tomorrow will get a full diagnosis at last. 

Maggie59 is right about a whole new set of medical terms,  lots of them.  

This site is Brilliant for understanding what they mean.  Google is bad and scary.

Here I've found wonderful supportive women and sharing the good, the 

bad and the Hilarious has made it so much easier to deal with.

Sending love

Be kind to yourself,  its pretty tiring making sense of it all




Re: Diagnosed 28/11

Welcome Nelliealice and sorry that you have had to join us...
I think we all have felt that same shock but you will get a lot of useful information here and will fast become an expert in medical terms you didn't know existed.! You will also make some great friends.
Good luck with the surgeon today. At least things seem to be moving quite quickly for you.
Keep us posted.

Diagnosed 28/11

Hi all, I have just been diagnosed with BC, and am feeling somewhat shell shocked, it was from a routine mammogram, I can't take in that I have this as I am a fit and healthy person (or so i thought), I am going through a lot of different emotions at the moment, the main one is disbelief. I am meeting with  the surgeon tomorrow to discuss the next step and the reconstruction. I have been ready a lot of posts here and feel that i have joined a new club!!
