Bone scan appointment through today for the 20th. Oncologist on the 23rd and back with my breast consultant on 26th. I'm glad all the scans will be done by then, as we'll then have the full picture and can plan ahead!
My lump is quite large too, but wasn't sore at all until the biopsies. I was a bit bruised for over a week, but it's settling now. My breast generally feels lumpier, but I was told to expect this after the biopsies. I managed to get my CT yesterday, after pulling strings at my own place, and got MRI confirmed for 16th, so at least feel as if things are happening now. I'm just waiting on a date for my bone scan now. Good luck to all, and lots of positive thoughts!!!
Thank you all for your reassurance. was worried all this waiting around means it is growing bigger. hopefully i will hear from the hospital today about my scans. Feeling a lot more postive today after a good nights sleep, think that was what was needed as iv had a few bad nights. Julie x
You sound very similar to me. My cancer was confirmed on Thursday and they want to do chemo first, then surgery. My consultant told me they want to do it that way round to minimse the risk of local recurrence, and with chemo they can see what effect a particular kind is having on the tumour. If they do sugery first, there is no way of knowing of the chemo is doing its job. The waiting around for ct, mri and bone scans is horrible, nd I am doing my best to keep active (both in mind and body). Good luck with things x
