Beryl, that is fantastic news.
Cazz, I was never given a 'score' for my hormone receptor so I can't help with that, but as someone else said, I know that sometimes after pathology they can give much more accurate results, and sometimes cancers are 'upgraded'. That must be horrible, but don't forget they have got yours out so what ever the little sucker was it is now GONE! Whatever your follow up treatment is, don't forget it is PREVENTION.
Best of luck lovely ladies. I have a hideous cold at the moment and actually feel more unwell with this than I did during the whole BC thing!
Lots of love
Hi Beryl! Can I claim 2nd best, please? I only have the clear-up op, during which they'd better get it right. 3rd time lucky will NOT apply in this case! Like you, I will get the hormone stuff, don't know what or when, but as I think I mentioned before, if it turns me back into that raging sobbing menopausal mess, they will take me off it as it won't create too much more risk compared to the loss of quality of life.
Really pleased for you
Love, Rose xx
How can such a thing happen. To be told one thing and start on treatment and then be told they 'got it wrong'.
Good news about Lymph nodes. I think there are several who celebrate that on here this week.
Does seem a long wait though
I was given results as I went along with the final ones today- 10 days after op
Mine were the best - all clear - completely cleared - not in vascular system or in the chest wall - Do need to take anastrozole for 5 years and have regular check ups but that's it.
I jusy wish it was the same for all of you
Oh Cazz- doesn't it just go on and on and on...
Just when you think there's definite good news, they threw another rock at you. Let's just hope the first biopsy was the true result.
Hormone treatment was mentioned at my very first appointment, but don't know when it'll start. Because I already went through a hideous menopause and discussed that with the BCN at the start of this saga (no other word, the last 3 months have been the longest of my life) I wonder if they decided to let me wait till I got over surgery before they put me through another one? I don't know. It seems that treatment is so different in other areas of the country. Like this 4 week wait for pathology here? I don't like to mention that other areas seem to produce those in 2 weeks. I may query that later, I don't want to annoy anyone at least till I've had the second op. I'll be unconscious and at their mercy during that!
Another couple of weeks wait for you, then? It's just cruel.I really hope that they revert to their earlier opinion.
Love, Rose xx
Hi Cazz, well it's great news that they managed to get all of your cancer in one go and absolutely brilliant that your nodes are clear, phew! I'm afraid I can't help with the hormone question as I don't know how that works, but hopefully someone will be along soon who can help
Hi Cazz, think today is the day for your post-surgery pathology results so just wanted to wish you well, will be thinking of you 🙂
