Bad news for me, just been diagnosed with grade 2 IDC with lymph node involvement. Have to wait for an MRI & CT scan to see if it's spread ... to say i'm terrified is putting it mildly 😞 x
Yes - I agree totally - the waiting is so horrible.
Ha, Wednesday is a very popular day by all accounts! Welcome to our little club Senni - fingers crossed none of us are in it for very long! I hope you get through the weekend ok, i'm terrified & am just constantly fighting back the tears for the sake of my children (they're only 3.5yrs & 22mths) The waiting is just awful isn't it?
Can I join this club (even tho' it's one none of us want to be in?). My appointment at the breast clinic is next Wednesday too, in the morning.
So will be thinking of you.
Appointment to get the results from my biopsies is next Wedneday (16th) at 1.30 ... feeling very sick again now 😞
They've said i'll get a letter with an appointment for next week sometime xx
Hi Justmex, thank you!
No, i've read posts on here where consultants etc have given hints either way as to the outcome, but no one said anything to me, not the mammogram nurse, the doctor who did the ultrasound & biopsy nor the consultant after. The consultant was very nice but basically said it was 50/50 so there was no point in talking about the ins & outs without knowing the results.
He said the lump was very small (10mm) so even if it was bad news, it would be very treatable (didn't mention the lypmh nodes being swollen mind) but it could just as easily be nothing to worry about, so the best thing was to wait for the results next week 😞
This week has near on killed me, i've lost half a stone & haven't stopped crying ... i've no idea how i'm going to get through another week 😞
I haven't read about your situation on your post yet (will do now) - but sending you hugs xx
So mammogram, ultrasound, biopsy of the lump & of the lymph node & i'm still no nearer knowing 😞 At least another of week of feeling terrified then before i find out anything except this time i'm sore & worrying instead of just worrying .... this sucks 😞 xx
So after the longest week of my life i have my breat clinic appointment at 12.30 today ... what with the lymph node swelling i'm not expecting good news to be honest, but am still hoping for a miracle 😕
I have never been this terrified in my entire life 😞 xxxx
So sorry you have found yourself in this situation, it's only natural to think the worst.
Don't think i can be of much help really but wanted to reply anyway.
Lumps and bumps can be many things other than cancer, i know that doesn't really help your worrying but but over 90% of lumps are benign xx
Lymph nodes can swell for many reasons too from infections and virusus, glandular fever to rheumatoid arthritis 🙂
This will be the worst part the wait but you will get through till next monday, keep busy and keep chatting on here or phone the helpline if you need any advice xx
Thinking of you
I've just turned 40 & have no family history of BC.
Last week i found a lump, it's hard & fixed (as far as i can tell),pretty painless (maybe a little tender, but i'm sure that's from all the poking i'm doing) about the size of a grape and situated roughly half way between my breast & my arm pit. I saw my doctor on Friday & she confirmed the lump & referred me to the breast clinic.
I've spent the weekend as a blubbering mess. I have two young children (3.5yrs & 21mths) & i just can't stand the thought of what this might mean. Over the weekend i've also noticed that i have swelling in my armpit & have pretty much convinced myself that it can't be anything other than BC.
I've just had a call from the breast clinic to say that my appointment is next Monday (so another week of feeling like this - my little girl keeps asking me why i'm crying & i feel so bad)
Does anyone have (or did have) similar symptoms? I'm terrified enough without now thinking that the lymph nodes are involved. Is it possible for them to swell for another reason (if it was an infection i'm sure i would have pain or fever or some other symptom)?
Thanks for any advice xx
