Hi Gemini,
We had a nice time thanks, I am getting up to date with washing and ironing, trying to make myself really tired, lol. Pre op nurse said I should be early on the operating list as I am diabetic. So by this time tomorrow should be home 🙂

Re: New to forums

Hi Gemini,
I too have IDC diagnosed (hormone negative) on 2 April, having lumpectomy and SNB on Tuesday 29th. It does help coming onto this forum and talking to others in the same position.
Now my op is getting so close I'm feeling a bit nervous but will be glad when it's over. X

Re: New to forums

Hi Gemini22

I was diagnosed with IDC on 7 April and will be having Lumpectomy and SNB on 2 May.

I have found this forum so informative with lots of support. I have gone through so many emotions from shock, worried and absolutely petrified! I am trying to be positive but find it hard. I would say that you must let out your fears and get angry or cry - don't bottle it up.

I am taking it each day at a time but we are only human and it is such a scary time.

Keep busy and allow others to support you.

Always here if you need to chat.

Best wishes

Re: New to forums

Hi Gemini22

 

Sorry to hear you have joined "the club".

 

You will get plenty of support and advice here 🙂

 

I was diagnosed with IDC on April 2nd and had lumpectomy and SNB on April 14th, I am recovering well and have lots of support from family and friends. Waiting now for appointment with oncologist for outcome of op and treatment plan, it is very scarey and there are good and bad days. I have been trying to keep as busy as possible and stay positive but it is hard.

 

All the best to you, all i can say is take one day at a time and take all the advice and support you can get xxx

 

Take care

 

Wendy

Hello everyone, i've been recently diagnosed with IDC hormone positive. My surgery is on May 7th and as well as the lumpectomy and nipple removal on one breast i am going for a breast reduction (small lump and large breasts so seemed a sensible option)! Don't know grade until after SNB. Any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks L x
