I have rung them and they've put my mind a little bit at rest. The main symptom I have is pain, no swelling or lumps just pain. That is not usually a sign of BC but still panicking - you only to read some of the stories on here.
Ring them daily to see if they have any cancellations. That may be the only option. I agree the waiting is awful. I lost 11.5lb in 2 weeks. Good luck to all. I know how scared you all are and wish there was something i could do or say to help you feel better. 1 bit of advice would be to stay away from Google. I scared myself senseless by reading things on there. Out of date info and some things that are just plain wrong. If you need any advice or reassurance use the bc helpline. xxx
I considered going private but was put off when I read another forum members comment saying that if you needed treatment via NHS then you'd still have to wait. You'd just know a lot sooner. It's a double edged sword. It's 2 weeks since I saw my GP and it'll be another 2 weeks before my appointment at the Magnolia centre. The waiting is horrendous x
Ring the centre.and ask chuck. They will be able to tell you for certain. You will still need a referral from your doctor though and if this has already been sent it could end up being longer if you now try and go privately. I went to the magnolia centre. It was 19 days from my gp visit to my appointment date. The waiting is horrendous and I can totally get where you are coming from wanting to go private to speed things up.
Been to GP again today. Been referred to clinic as one breast "feels" different to the other. Can't explain how it feels I just have a sensation that it's there. No lump though and it hurts. Not got appt until 6th may which is 3 weeks away. Feel sick with worry.
