Re: New addition to the club!

Welcome picky, at least you are in the right place! I can honestly say since joining here I haven't felt alone. Surprising just how you get along and cope. I felt well and it's only now just going back to work that I feel really tired. Only doing 16 hours a week but maybe it takes a while. I will be 5 weeks post op on tuesday, so next step rads and drug. Take care lol xxxxxxx

Hi Picky,

 

Sorry you've had to join us but hope we'll all be able to help you as you go through this - listening ears, broad shoulders and fantastic advice from people who actually know are all available here 🙂  And a fair dose of dark humour too as I'm sure you'll discover.  I've yet to find a question that these lovely ladies can't answer and it is so reassuring to know that you can ask anything and someone will know the answer and provide some reassurance when you need it.

 

Totally understand what you mean about feeling well, although now that I've been prodded, poked and chopped about a bit that feeling of wellness has started to fade (should mention right upfront that I am a total wuss!)

 

Good luck and keep posting!

xx

Hi picky

 

Firstly, welcome to the forums, I am sure you will find it a great source of information and support. I'm sorry to read of your diagnosis, the first few days and weeks are always difficult when coming to terms with things and getting to grips with your treatment plans, etc.

 

As well as the support you are receiving on the forums you might find it helpful to order the BCC resources pack. It has been specifically designed for those newly diagnosed and contains information to help you better understand your diagnosis, test results and the various treatments available. If you would like to order a copy just follow the link bellow:-

Also, do give the helpline a ring if you need any further support or information. They're on 0808 800 6000. Open 9-5 Monday to Friday and 10-2 Saturday.

 

Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator

New addition to the club!

Hello, I have been  diagnosed  with bc in both (4 lumps in left, 2 in right).  It has spread to lymph nodes in right side.  I meet  oncologist next week and start chemo on the 9th, surgery to follow.

 

I have been reading  posts from the sidelines for a couple of weeks but decided to be brave and join properly. Must admit at the moment I feel too well to be ill, if that makes sense? X
