Re: Goodbye and Good Luck!

Oh dear, all these people leaving is a disaster. The people who have gone have lost a a resource that should be helping them, and those of us left behind ( who have become so emotionally involved with these people), are left wondering if they are OK. BCC don't seem to appreciate that when someone has a life threatening illness, they often feel vicarious security from reading that others in a similar situation is OK, and when people disappear one can feel mistified and insecure. Obviously BCC cannot prevent people leaving, but must acknowledge that this episode has been a huge blunder. I appreciate that BCC feel the last site was becoming outdated, and difficult to maintain, but it didn't appear to cause any major problems, and people were comfortable with it. I just think money would have been better spent, strengthening BCC's lobbying role, which in my opinion is not as strong as it could be.

Re: Goodbye and Good Luck!

Hi Aristos,

Sorry to read your news, it is a very scary time. I can't answer your question about the second biopsy, but I am sure someone else will know the answer. You could also call the helpline, as they are very knowledgeable and helpful too. Because you have commented on a 'farewell' thread you might get missed, so hopefully the mods can repost for you on a new thread in the right section, which will get more replies. Right now it seems incredibly terrifying, but you will get through. Big hug.

MODS - can you maybe move this post from Aristos to a new thread? I fear it may get missed here.

Re: Goodbye and Good Luck!

hi everyone,have just been diagnosed with dcis today. I have to have another biopsy on Monday and they have told me that I will have to have a mastectomy.So why are they doing another biopsy.I have not told family yet, and dread telling them.
I am trying not to think too much,it all seems unreal at the moment but I have shed a few tears and I am feeling pretty scared.

Re: Goodbye and Good Luck!

I will be so sorry to see you leave maude , i realy hope if/when the forums ever get back to being what we had all once loved about them you will reconsider, it seems so many ladies have left lately , and all the names i use to look out for are mostly gone now and i feel realy sad about that as when you have been useing the forums for a long time you realy do miss all the ladies you have come to know over the yrs, its a bit like looseing your BC family, well thats i how feel anyway. So sorry to hear you have decided to go too, we need the longer term members like you on the forums as where will the forums be without the expierences of people like yourself? Hope you will reconsider along with all the other ladies who dont post on BCC anymore.
Best of luck to you maude, take care.

Goodbye and Good Luck!

I have used these forums since my dx in 2008. I have found them invaluable but NO MORE!!! The new site is non user friendly and just impossible to use! I have loved these forums and recommended them to so many people but unfortunately I have to say I have lost patience (and I am a very patient person) with the new site/forums.

Good bye and good luck
Maude xx
