Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

I think a lot of us are struggling a bit mentally as well as physically.this certainly takes the stuffing out of you .It will take time to get anywhere near "normal".2 holidays ,sounds good !!!

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Very anxious a lot of the time which isn't like me.  My GP said it is perfectly normal to feel like this. I do however feel quite well apart from tiredness . Trying to get back to normal.  I have booked 2 holidays for next year.  Just sorting out the travel insurance.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Thank you for that Jill.  I have also been experiencing breast pain & I have been fretting about it. Glad to know it is normal. Seeing the oncologist in 3 weeks. That will be 12 weeks since I finished treatment. I wish my hospital did 6 week appointments.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

I'm sure it's normal. I got survey through too,can't face completing it as yet.Really didn't enjoy going to hospital today knew it was nothing to worry about but it just reminds you again doesn't it that you have had cancer.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Thanks Jill - sure it's nothing to worry about - just needing some reassurance I guess! Hope you are getting on ok with work now. I have had days when I don't think about cancer now but then I got a survey through the post to complete about my treatment and it all comes flooding back. It's the emotional side of this which I didn't expect to find so hard. At least I'm busy at work - this takes my mind off it! Got an appointment next week at hospital so hopefully they will be able to reassure me that everything is normal.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Hi Sharon, I have aching boob too and so have other people I've spoken to and I am 2 months post rads now.Asked Onc today and says it is part of healing,tissues repairing themselves so you get some feeling back where you had none.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Hi all, not been on here for a while. Hope you are all doing well. Just wondered if any of you are still getting pain as I've had painful boob for last couple of weeks - not shooting pains which I was told was nerve pain, but just general soreness and tenderness. I have appointment with onc next week so will ask then but just wondered if this is normal so far on from op. It's almost six months since my lumpectomy now and a couple of months since my rads. Trying not to be anxious about this and hoping it's just scar tissue.

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Hi Julie. I've had genetic testing for the BRCA 1 and 2 genes and another which is specific to my family's origin from Eastern Europe. All negative thank goodness. In my case it was just a blood sample sent away to a specialist lab. I did have some counselling before going ahead, which they should do, but I had already made my mind up that I would have it I needed to know for my daughters sake. The one thing you need to be aware of is that it usually takes several weeks for the result to come through as it takes time to carry out and I found the wait very hard. Just another thing you have to deal with during this journey but you can only keep going. Sending you hugs xx

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Re: OCTOBER AND ONWARDS...

Slightly... well very off topic, sorry, but I've had my appointment through for genetic testing. I'm sure there must be thread on here somewhere for others that are going for this too or have been through it, just wondered if anyone knows the link or has had this and has any advice etc? Thanks all Smiley Wink xxx
