just thoght id share that I had 12/13 positive armpit lymph nodes in 2001, it had spreadt to the local tissues in the armpit( Also had a breast lump) i still remember how scared I was, was told it would be back quite soon, but had 10 cancer free years and still herexx
very best wishes fro your treatmentxx
Strudel and Emily, great you now have a date too..at least you have a little time to plan thingsxx
Hi Fiona, good to hear you now have a date for your op!
yes, its really tough waiting isnt it.
re not feeling well. Lots of us have found that just the stress of knowing can make us feel very unwell. When I was told I needed chemo. Last time, I Developed a sore throat, cough, neck and shoulder aches! I just couldnt believe they thought I was well enough to have chemo! Stress can mimic other disease and it makes things worse!
once the chemo started,my other bits went away quite fast! So try not to let felling awful spook you, if you can....once your treatment gets under way, you will definitely feel better. You will feel you are more in control of things.
very best wishes for a great outcome of your surgery. Also to the rest of you too. Its lovely that you have each other for support.! Will be looking to see how things go.
Good news! Got date for surgery 15th December. Also having breast reduction which was a surprise. God-willing all will go well. Just glad date is sorted.
Hi Fiona Some days it does all seem to catch up with you X
Im recently diagnosed and havent started treatment yet as they seem unsure what to do with me and I am now waiting to be called for MRI and CT I know I have breast cancer and it is in my underarm area too but Im on a knifeedge without knowing if it has spread further than that.
Hold on to your faith, concentrate on the fact that you ARE moving forward and that treatment today is so much more advanced so we are in good hands.
Have a virtual hug from someone else who is scared and doing her best to face this (((HUGS)))
