Re: Results not good

The shock is just horrendous.When I was first told I had BC went really cold,then when informed I needed a mastectomy,in my mind,Sgn was only going to take a tiny bit away,not the whole breast......your mind all over the place,people talk to you,but it is like you are under water.....you will get through it.....gentle hugs,especially as it is a Saturday,and sunny,and many if us have a little black cloud hanging over us.....

Re: Results not good

Hi Mac66 sorry to,hear you have had distressing results. I can only emphasise what other ladies have said that there is life the other side . I had chemo, db mx , rads and now having Herceptin in addition to taking Letrozolo for the next 5 years! You will find this forum very supportive as unfortunately we are all,travelling down the same road! When I commenced chemo I joined a monthly chemo thread, April 14, I have never met any of these dear ladies but we have all supported each other through the ups and downs. Next month a few of us are meeting together for the first time! Nobody else understands you fears any better than we do! Once you get your journey order sorted you will just pass through the motions! Thinking of you over the coming days. X

Re: Results not good

Hello all you lovely ladies

 

Just want you to know that i have had 2 lumpectomies but did not get clear margin so had a mx on 23rd June. My tumour was grade 3 invasive 61mm and all 18 nodes removed were positive for cancer yet both my bone and CT scans were clear.

 

So high node involvement does not mean it has to have spread.

 

Good luck with your treatment and stay positive

Re: Results not good

Oh dear Mac

So sorry to hear your results - positive thoughts though - They now know what they are dealing with. You will probably not have to wait too long. Mastectomy is the ultimate way to get rid of the Beast.

 

devastating i know but cry away and gentle hugs#we are all hear to support and listen

Re: Results not good

so sorry the results were not what expected or wanted.   I do understand how you feel and the worry and waiting at this time is the worst.   Initially I was told i 'just' needed a WLE but no clear margins and node involvement meant I had to have a Mastectomy and all my nodes removed   My tumour was 9cm all invasive and I had a total of 9 out of 23 nodes that had cancer.   I  had chemo and rads and hormone treatment as my cancer was ER+.   I also had staging scans before my treatment plan.  that was just over 5 years ago, at at the time I was totally distraught.  I got through it all though and I am sure you will too.  The treatment these days is fantastic and you will get loads of support on this site.   Just take one day at a time.   xxx

Re: Results not good

So sorry to hear that MAC, what a horrible shock and I wish it could have been better but as the other ladies have said, hang in there.  It's more treatment than you were expecting but it is still only a small fragment of time in your life and worth it to get this damn disease beaten.

 

Sending you big hugs and every possible good wish

xx

Re: Results not good

What a shock for you. It will be a longer road to recovery than you had hoped and must be very hard to think positive right now but hang on in there. Seems lots of people on here understand exactly what you are going through and lots have come out the other side. Thinking of you xxxx

Results not good

Got my results today. My 9mm lump turned out to be 3cm of invasive and 4 cm of non-invasive (I think that's what the consultant said) , plus it was in 8/15 lumph nodes so I am now going to need a mastectomy and chemo. Need to have bone scans and MRI to work out which order that will happen in.

I feel really numb. This was so unexpected.
