Maldives, how are you doing? You seem so caring, no self pity, regardless of the "terminal" diagnosis. Btw I hate that word...people live for years after that.
I am waiting to see the Consultant, to get the results of my first ever mammogram (I am 72 years old) . reason...., I had a bloody discharge and the Gp referred me immediately to the Breast Clinic. I don't know what awaits me, but I feel ok.....what wil be, will be. I am very anxious but am keeping busy
love and thanks xxx
By having all these scans, you will know for certain that at the moment everything is cancer free. When my consultant told me that he wasn't going to do my mx if the CT scan found it had spread I was gutted. But, I understand that he didn't want to put me through a major operation unnecessarily- it stilled scared the **bleep** out of me waiting for the results of the scan.
Maybe, that's why I feel empty, every week I was waiting for the next set of results, it seemed to go on and on and now all that adrenaline has stopped. I've never been so scared in my life before.
I should have had the MRI right back in October because I am what is termed as "multi focal". However, my second lump wasn't discovered until the day of surgery, which means I haven't followed the right pathway. They just want to be triply sure. I have had a 3D scan a 2d scan and an USS, but they just want to do this last one.
Hi sorry,in the weird way my brain is working these days No one would understand those posts. I have had a lumpectomy to two patches. 1, grade 1 6mm. 1 grade 2 11mm. I am ER positive HER2 neg. no node involvement. Because I have had a multi focal cancer I am having an MRI to mbreasts only on Monday. I am starting on Latrazole Monday too.
my sister said to me, that is like a secret spy code! 😀
Its pouring down with rain here - but have a good day.
I've just had an immediate panic making that post. Silver am so relating to what you say. Am I being a fool? Did I must-understand?
when I had a chat with my oncon, I said there needs to be more education in the general public, as BC is so mis-understood. I might not yet be out of the woods as I have my MRI tomorrow, I don't feel fear today which I would have done back in October.
Have a lovely day.
Hi Maldives, I am cancer free as well, my oncologist used those words, I will be having radiotherapy as belt and braces and preventative therapy. Dependent on your type of cancer etc is dependent on your treatment and outcome. Where are you on this pathway of........
Just logging in to wish us all a good day, and hoping your day is anxiety free.
Hi. Yes that's me too. I'm feeling really good and beginning to put this behind me - though almost a bit too scared to think in that way, beginning to feel a bit surreal.
im off to the gym now so will catch you later. This is a good thread to start!
I wasn't sure where to put this, as it didn't seem to fit any of the categories.
I'm not newly diagnosed, or going through treatment yet (starts soon), nor living with breast cancer.
According to my surgeon I'm cancer free.
I'm not scared at the moment, although I'm not looking forward to going through chemo.
I was diagnosed on the 29 November, went through all the terrifying, heart stopping, waiting for results, had a mx and SNB on 13 December and got the all clear on 22 December.
I'm numb, I think I'm in shock, it's like it has happened to someone else. I have no interest in anything. I'm in limbo.
I'm not even sure why I'm posting this - but who else would understand?
