Phew, eventually got logged back on the new forum style, let's see now this all works!
Glo, i the heparin injections a few years back. They are an annoyance rather than painful however you can end up with quite spectacular bruises if you (or hubby!) pinch too hard at the site of the injection. You do have to grab a bit of flesh to inject into but if it's too hard the bruising is worse I found, as a nurse had told me. You should get it right over time and by the end I wasn't getting any bruising. Great news with the results btw, I don't always come on this thread but have been catching up since the forum was offline.
Imac..glad to hear you feel a little more positive and that yourn treatment works well.
Orse, my friend.....i am holding your hand and hoping for good news.xxxx
Hi All. Results: Breast cancer secondaries in lung and pelvis bone. Brain clear thank goodness. Now have to wait again to see the Oncologist. Chatted to my old Breast support nurse, ironic. She was fairly positive. She thinks that as I am well, they may suggest I have limited treatment, maybe hormone therapy only. She said I shouldn't underestimate how good this can be. Lifted my mood a lot. Still expecting dark days, but coming to terms with diagnosis and hopeful for a managable prognosis, at least for as long as possible. Thanks for your kind words.
