Re: I don't understand all these abbreviations in people's posts

You're not the only one thirtyeighteff - my few remaining braincells keep getting befuddled by all the abbreviations. Now that we've been given a helpful link all we need to do is remember where it has been saved for future reference. Woman Wink

Hi thirtyeighteff

 

Here's a link to the glosary produced by BCC which should explain some of the terms:-

I hope you find this helpful.

Hi 38F ( nice name btw 😉

 

Yes there is. I've seen a link to it on another thread but don't know which one or what the link is!

I'm sure a forum moderator will be along soon to point you in the right direction.

mx = mastectomy

I don't know ANC.

Has anybody got a BCC foreign phrase book ?   What's a mx,   a ANC , etc. etc.  Is there a glossary anywhere I can refer to.  Thanks
