Re: MRI today

Hi

 

I;m sorry the results are not more clearcut, but as you say, you have a plan and an op date so you have something to focus on. I felt much better once I knew what was going to happen.

 

Hope the biopsy goes ok.

Re: MRI today

Back for the results today, still a bit unclear, definitely a lump to be removed but there is an area which is probably benign and I am having another biopsy tomorrow.  Been given an operation date of 20th November.  Funnily enough I am feeling better about it all now that things are planned.  I will get the results of the second biopsy on Tuesday so fingers crossed.

Re: MRI today

Thanks for you message.  The MRI wasn't too bad, but not comfortable, and just lying there trying to think of positive things was hard.  I am back to see the consultant on Tuesday, so I should be clearer then about what is going to happen.  I am quite surprised how much calmer I am about the whole thing now, but there are moments when I feel really down.  I am not sleeping, I have never been a good sleeper, but it is getting ridiculous, I am exhausted when I go to bed then wide awake an hour or so later.  The kitchen is under control, I have cracked on with it, and someone is coming to help tomorrow and it is now getting back to normal - I can reach the sink.

Re: MRI today

Hi Jaime

 

How did the mri go? I didn't like it very much an  Got a bit emotional afterwards. The waiting for results can be very hard.

 

I can understand how you feel about the op, but as others have said on here other  is often a feeling of relief after the op even before the results are  known. I was  quite surprised  by this myself but I too felt much better afterwards.

 

You need to take it one step at a time and just accept the bad days, we can't be positive all the time.

 

Take care and don't overdo it with the kitchen!

MRI today

I have been back to work for a week since having having the diagnosis three weeks ago, but I have an MRI today and then back to see the Consultant on Tuesday.  Being back at work helped me to forget a bit about it all, but all the bad feelings are coming back today.  It doesn't help that it's raining and dark.  It is getting a bit easier I can talk to people about it, but I am not looking forward to the operation and the next few months.  I am trying to be positive, but it is not always easy.  

 

Foolishly I started decorating the kitchen before I went back to work, it is now a total mess I can only just reach the sink to wash up, well I guess I better get on with it before the hospital will be a good thing!
