Sorry to hear your news. You took the time out to reply to me when I was waiting for results the first time round, and it really helped. So,I wanted to offer support to you. You sound positive and I hope that helps you at this time. I am still in the "waiting room", as one of the lumps they discovered the first time around seemed suspicious, and so had further biopsies, I get those results tomorrow.
As everybody else has stated, I would go back Wednesday with pencil and paper and reiterate your concerns with the consultant. I also had a biopsy done, which first they wanted to do again and now they feel is benign. However, they will be checking on me again in July. I can well understand your confusion. Your mind is racing with fears, doubts and concerns. The last thing we all need with this is one person telling us one thing and somebody else telling us something else.
If I was you, I would write all my questions down now. Go on Wednesday ask all the questions, write down the answers or even better make sure someones with you. Also make sure you question the consultant about that other area. The main thing is your peace of mind.
Big hugs matey. I know exactly how you are feeling.
Thank you everyone for your kind words. The support is very much appreciated.
Sarah - sorry to hear that today has left you feeling confused and uncertain. If you are worried you should ask about it when you go for your results - and keep asking until you feel reassured. My understanding is that your GP is sent a copy of the report so may be able to address some of your concerns too. Wishing you well xx
Sarah, you have every right to ask about things that are to do with your body. You must be booked in with a consultant for the results? Write all of it down so that you remember what you have to say. I personally think you must get all clarified, otherwise you won't have peace of mind. I would also make an appt with you GP to go through it with them aswell.
Hadders, come and join us on the thread "here we go again, need someone to talk some sense into me" You'll be very welcome and you can sound off to me and the others as much as you want. Your result sounds similar to mine, so you may be having a similar experience to me.
Speak soon on that thread and keep that chin firmly up. xx
Belinda - excellent news, really pleased to hear that.
thank you everyone for your good wishes. Unfortunately, my news isn't the best - it is a cancer, but it is small and oestrogen + so not the worst news. The staff at the clinic were lovely and I am in a positive frame of mind.
Sarah - will be thinking of you tomorrow.
Belinda, that is excellent news, the kind we love to hear.
Sarah16, sending hugs and best wishes for tomorrow, I hope all goes well.
hadders, you have hopefully got your news by now. I hope it is better than expected.
Bless you all. poemsgalore xxx
Also, like Belinda, I had core biopsy after inconclusive scan. The nurse explained everything fully and I barely felt a thing. Was quite bruised for a few days afterwards, but not too painful. I work with children and was slightly anxious about going back to work the next day, but was fine. Might be a good idea to ask when you have it done though as you say you do heavy lifting. Hope it all goes ok - will be thinking of you xx
Hi Belinda and Sarah - I am with you in this waiting room and have found the support on here has really helped to get me through. I get my results on Thursday and am counting down the hours now.
Really hope you get good news
And Poemsgalore - us 'waiters' really do appreciate you and the other ladies who have been through this stage coming back to post messages of support and encouragement. Wishing you all the best.
Thank you xx
I am so sorry you are having this worry right now. The waiting room is the worst place to be, as you have no real answers and all the possibilities keep going round and round in your head. Try to fill your time doing things you really, really enjoy. Reading a good book, watching a good movie, anything to try and distract yourself. Unfortunately the weather isn't very good either, so a nice country walk is out of the question. Perhaps you could read some posts in this thread:
where those of us who have undergone treatment and are at various stages of being NED (no evidence of disease) post our good news messages. It might help to show you there is light at the end of this awful tunnel you are currently in. Sending big hugs and best wishes.
