Thank you Helena for sharing that with me and so pleased to hear you have reached the end of your rads.
I can imagine having your time controlled everyday could Get to you, I think that is the part I will find quite hard too.
Thank you for all your support since my first posting, it really helped me. I've now posted on the newly diagnosed thread.
I'm just about to leave for work (half day Thursday yay) and didn't want to leave without saying I'm thinking of you and keeping everything crossed for some positive news from your scan.
just picked up your message. Something will kick in this morning and you get into some auto mode believe me. I think it is down to the natural fight or flight mode. I never got to the clinic too early - just on time as the waiting bit was not good and I could control that bit of the process. I found that following recall and during my biopsy results appts there were less women there so it was a bit calmer. Thinking of you.
I'm new to all this too! I, like you, have moments of complete panic and want to hide away however this morning as I got out of bed I found myself saying "I'm not b****y well dead yet, get up, dress up and live" - daft I know but was the kick up the backside I needed.
The support on here has helped me loads and I'm sure it will help you too. xx
Thankfully you've had this seen to now, so you will get to the bottom if what it is.
It often seems the lump seems worse after investigation as the boob is bruised from the biopsy, it doesn't mean it's getting worse, also anxiety always makes everything seem worse, whilst waiting for results.
do let us know how you get on & come here & chat whenever you need to.
I had tissue removed during GA - but that did follow Ultra sound biopsies too which had come back as inconclusive. Everyone is slightly different - I can really empathise with you though - as my scare meant that despite inconclusive FNA - there was a chance that the BC was hidden due to how it was presenting on the mammo and I wouldnt know until the results came back - a week after surgery. My surgeon removed quite a lot of tissue, giving wide margins just in case..... I can say it was the worse week of my life - not only with the physical stuff - but not knowing what was going to happen next. So I would say sometimes the order of how things happen arent the same and we shouldnt see that as something bad. Mine came back OK - and I think it is important on this forum to reaffirm that not everyone has BC.
Let us know how you go, and take care
I haven't had my lump removed for a biopsy, although they did remove it when I had a mx, so they could analyse it further.
The stage you are at is horrible, all the waiting for results. Just because they haven't told you what they think it is, doesn't mean it is cancer. My US lady told me straight away, before they even did the biopsy that it was cancer, but they are still on the fence with you. It could be benign and they just need to be sure before they tell you.
The panic and fear is natural and every lady in here knows how you are feeling. Sending you big hugs and lots of luck for your results.
