Thank u dmcf! Hope your coping ok! And have the support you need! Just left the hospital and have been given the all clear!! Apparently it's all hormonal! I'm over the moon and so emotional right now, this forum has been fantastic and I will keep on comin back to see how everyone is and hopefully erasure some people that are in this position xxx
Aw thanks for updating us hunbun. Been thinking of you to. That's great news! I'm awaiting my surgery date. Should be in the next couple of weeks then chemo will start Prob around new year. My little boy turned 1 the weekend before last but he's a poorly boy at the moment bless him. My daughters main concern is me losing my hair at the moment. I'm so worried about her. It's hard as the little one is so poorly. As soon as he's on the mend she's definatly getting a treat day x x
Just to let you all know that I had my breast ultrasound today & thank God it was fine just normal glandular Breast tissue so relieved.. However that being said I can't help but feel sad about all the lovely ladies going through or been through Breast cancer I met two lovely ladies today who had been through it and we're having their yearly checks broke my heart 😞
Dmcf hope your as well as can be and that the ball is rolling foward for you now with treatments etc I have been thinking of you and your kiddies x x
Oh no think te stress can defo make you ill! I have serve tonsillitis again so back on antibiotics! Had my appointment at breast clinic today for a second opinion and he felt something but said he wasn't to worried & thinks it's probably hormonal changes! But is sending me for an ultra spud to be sure, my underarm is now really painful but my breast doesn't really hurt anymore 😕 I'm sooo scared I don't know what to think! Xx
Hopefully mine will be something simple as that and not anything sinister! I will let you know how I get on, also my ultrasound is next Monday for my breast think stress isn't helping I'm making myself even more I'll, hope your feeling well dmcf given your diagnoisis ive been thinking about u let me know how your appointment goes tomorow xx
It's tomorrow. Oh no that sucks. My friend has just had a couple of fibroids removed & one of her symptoms was bleeding. But all in all I bet it's just adding to your worry. Take care of yourself with so much going on and little ones do think about it can all get a bit much. Can anyone help you out with a bit of childcare so you can spend a bit of time away from them. Believe me I completely and utterly adore my children but I'm no martyr and time away from them is well deserved sometimes x x
Hi dmcf, my apointment is next Monday for the ultrasound, I have still been checking my breast but no significant changes as such, no monthly 😞 having really bad problems down below bleeding after sex and so on so urgent referal to gynaecologist for me and a smear and bloods done if it's not one thing it's another 😞 how are u feeling? Have you had your first apointment yet? Xx
Betty just to be sure please go back to your gp and insist on being referred to the Breast clinic. mine feels like a thick tightly strung elastic band under the skin it runs horizontally from my armpit area across the top of the nipple area. It isn't painful. On my u/s it showed as dialated and had no flow. I also have outward signs of skin puckering which is more exaggerated when my arm is raised x x
Hi Dmcf so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Can I ask you about the hardened vein, I went to see my gp because I had that on my right breast and nipple duscharge, he wanted to do a breast exam which he was very thorough and found a lump deep in my breast which is quite small. I don't have the hardened vein all the time though
Hello sorry to hear your news,I am too in same state,waiting for biopsy results this Thursday,they can cure breast cancer,so everyone keeps saying !if you don't mind me asking how old are your?i am 52,have they told you what they going to do,Mine is a big lump ,take care Shar xx
Aw dmcf we are here If you need to chat at any time your in the right place for support with many women on here having been diagnosed too 😞 I noticed if you look somewhere on here there is a younger woman place u can post on?
Frances so relieved that you had good news. I wish everyone could have good news such a cruel world we live in 😞 xx
Dmcf I am so sorry to hear your news. This community on here is wonderful and you will get some amazing support. Will be thinking of you. I was lucky enough to find out my lump is a fibroadenoma, am feeling incredibly lucky and grateful.
Oh dear dmcf, so sorry to hear that how are u feeling after hearing it all? I'm really shocked 😞 I hope that your ok just remember you will beat this and you have wonderful family and your little kiddies to support and help you all the way sending you big hugs xxx
What time is yours frances. Mines 10:50. Funnily enough I'm not nervous now. Just one more sleep. I've not been given any reassurances from anyone professional yet but you've just got to roll with it x x
Ah frances1985 I'm sure everything will be fine if the doctor thought it was suspicious they probably would of told u there & then? I have my fingers crossed for u so let us know. I have another worry at the moment my monthly.. Is late by 4 days! This is something that never happens in usually like clockwork! Xx
Hopefully they will ultrasound you this time cazza. I'm still waitin for my u/s apointment but only been a week so can't really complain just hope not too much longer! The strange thing is since I saw the Breast specialist last wk the pain has all but completely gone so makes me think was the pain stress related! Xx
Thanks everyone, I feel a little bit better but still don't think I will feel 100% certain untill after the scan, he said il have my ultrasound and they will be able to tell me there & then if they find anything suspicious then I'll have a follow up appointment with him, was just expecting the scan to be done today but relieved he seems to think they are fine.
Frances good luck for your biopsy on Thursday hope it goes well for you let us know how you get on, thinking of u all xx
Hi hunbun that sounds positive. Of course understandably you are worried about the ultrasound, but as you said if it was urgent they'd be much more hasty about things. Thank you Dmcf about the info re the biopsy. My lump is at the bottom of my left breast, right where the bottom of a bra would rub! I am a teacher and move around a lot, hope I'm not too sore on Friday at school.
Sorry everyone been manic since appointment I saw the specialist who examined and said they feel like nothing to be concerned about (cysts or fatty lumps he think) but he is sending me for an ultrasound just to double check , unsure when this will be just hope not waiting for long 😞 so a little bit reassured as everyone said if he thought it was serious you would of been sent for a scan there and then , but I thought it was just normal for a scan to be done the same time so a bit disappointed that I will be waitin again but fingers crossed he was right and it is nothing concerning hope everyone is as well as can be xx
