Hi Strebord, I too haven't been here for a while, although I do pop in sometimes, (obviously)! My second biopsy was negative, don't think the Dr's were expecting that... so I had a breast MRI, where they were thinking if it was really small this would find it, however that came back clear. Obviously that was great news, but it still didn't give me a definite as to whether there was anything there, so I had a WLE on the 7th Aug. However, when I got the results of the MRI the Dr did say he didn't expect to find anything with the WLE, with being younger, fit & healthy, (but I know that doesn't mean anything). So, on Weds (20th) I've got to go for my results to hopefully find out one way or another. He did talk more about cross contaminating and how this could occur, so who knows!
How are you doing? xx
Hello I'm also 37 and live with my husband and our 2 children but in Suffolk. I was diagnosed last week, (although there's still no definites as they're looking at cross contamination, although seem sure it isn't). I have good and bad times, probably because I still don't have definites. Just feel a bit lonely as don't know anyone else who has been through this. I have great family and friends, but I need to speak to people who 'get it' and understand all the feelings you get. X
I did get a bit down at certain times in each cycle (noticed a pattern) as i kept a bit of a chemo diary but i know it wasnt really me - its all the drugs,steroids,plus im on a zoladex injection that makes my body have false menopausal symptoms. But definitely more 'up' than 'down' weeks xxx
Hi rocho,i was diagnosed jan this year. I am 28,married and have a little girl who is nearly 2. I like youre attitude! And have pretty much been like you through it. I am coming to the end of my chemo now which i am so relieved about! You get good & bad days but a positive approach definitly helps. Do you know your treatment plan? Xx
I just registed here, this is my first post. I am 40, mother of two and I was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade 2 tumor. I was really positive in the first week thinking we can just cut this out and then get back to normal life. However, I have really struggled this week (I think it's sinking in more and more) and am worrying about if the cancer would have spread and to where and I have aches and pains all over and feel sick constantly. Is this normal???
I am having a lumpectomy on 30 July and then a decision will be made as to what treatment I have. I have no family history.
Your email was lovely to read and I look forward to hearing more about your journey. I am so pleased your scans were clear.
Anyway, just going to clean the kitchen and then treat myself to a nice film!
