Well fellow tits, its my 50th Birthday in September and whilst I am spending most of my time thinking about Nipples!!!
I thought I would do a 50th list all the things I would like to do and probally never going to get round to it!! lol
I fancied getting married
Unfortunately being single thats a big problem...
So if you have any ideas what I should do to take my mind off NIPPLES!!XXXX
Not necessarily shriveled my dear, mine actually looks bigger, lol in fact my boobs look great,lol, i was wearing a jump suit slightly low cut when my friend got home from work when sitting doggie, she said "god you are showing your cleavage." i said if youve got it flaunt it, i nearly didnt have it did ilol. Im feeling a need 32 d cups, but ive a load of matching sets, icant really afford to replace my undies wardrobe.! Junex
Welcome to the site. I was actually like you grade 2 but then 3 as aggressive my first node was suspect so they took them all when i had my lumpdectomy. My hospital seems to do this, many dont, but i didnt mind, one less place for any rougue cells to lurk i felt.And they came back all were clear, and clear margins so was just rads and tamoxifen, so 3 doesent always mean chemo if all other nodes clear,They always seem to gibe worst case senario, June
Not really possible for me to have a dog,i live in a flat, ok its my own flat, not rented but dogs not allowed in our lease, cats ok, some have indoor ones, i dont agree with indoor cats , not dogs though but in a flat i wouldnt want a pet, not big enough and no private garden. I adore my friends dog, and she knows i do but she has a bit of a mental block about me walking him. Ok its in the city surburbs where she lives, but there is a little park round the corner from her house, but no im not allowed to walk him. hes a working cocker and he does pull a bit, but im sure id be ok but i cant persuade her.
Yes Norfolk and Norwich is a decent hospital, we have a dedicated Cancer centre,where they do everything.and apart from the first surgeon i saw who scared me rigid talking about chemo, losing my hair, and what would all be like, and wanted to change my op date to week later, the breast cancer care nurse, phoned me later after id seen him, luckily my friend, the one i dog sit for was with me, and she took over phone as i went to pieces,she got quite shirty with them and said i lived alone and she felt i wouldnt cope witth the delay, I then got a new surgeon and earlier date and from then on ive no complaints at all,. great treatment, pleasant staff and no inappropriate remarks like you and Dawn. Both very uncalled for And of course i didnt need chemo so first surgeon was wrong.
O is tomorrow the polo, hope weather good sounds a bit iffy in S east but did get out today didnt it.
Are you going alone if so brave girl, Hope you meet a rich handsome man,lol
Hows the taxmoxifen going. Apart from the sweats im ok. Have felt bit tearful today, but often feel down at weekends as coupled up friends all have other committments so normally spend it alone, definitely need more single compatible friends here but god knows where to find them as ive said Norwich is a very couply place And mon have to go to the dentist Grrrr. still ive pretty good teeth for a 60 plus, all intact and in pretty good shape. Tues my old schoolfriend coming over, we are have a look round shops then having a meal out Carluccios probably our favourite shes doing well after her ovarian.and wed back to sitting my friends dog, he is a sweetie, love him to bits.
Keep us posted on the polo.
O that wasnt nice , Like Dee my hospital the Norfolk and Norwich has a separate cancer centre,everyhtng there and quite pleasant place. Goodness i thought all hospitals would have had everything together,Its not usual Norfolk is ahead of rest of UK but it is a teaching university hospital s maybe thats why. I had my hysterectomy in one 20 miles away on the coast where i used to iive not such a large one and have to say Norfolk and Norwich superior
Going to the pub good ;plan, sure helped make you feel better. June
Sheena, re: the wizened misshapen boob -- I always had a boob much bigger than the other, altho with my cast iron bras it wasn't visible. The offended one is, sadly, the lil' one -- which is now even smaller.
It was the only moment when the oncologist showed a deliciously humble side: "the boob can shrink or swell with the rads... I really hope yours swells..." (it felt also strangely dissonant, as he had delivered five minutes before a tragic-ish speech to persuade me to have chemo -- I mean, you tell me that I might die, and then you worry about my symmetry? Oh well... :D).
Listen, at the worse we'll stuff it in a sock. Or wrap it in a gel shoe sole, like Dee suggested weeks ago 😄 xx
Happy Saturday morning ladies!
Cashie, welcome to the bonkers thread. We are a bit wild jesters here but by no means shallow; feel free to express your emotions even when they are negative: there's no parade to rain on. It would be wonderful if we could all meet in person and support each other face to face, but we are all scattered across the UK, so we have to make do with doing it over the web. Cancer is sheer madness: I hope that our sometimes black humour and heartfelt moral support can be an additional anchor to sanity for you.
Dee, no news from the Marsden: at this point I believe it's not going to happen. My treatment plan is now laid ahead, and it's pretty standard stuff, so, even if I am a bit meh with not being moved there, I have to admit it probably doesn't make a massive amount of difference as far as my health is concerned. My rads are at Hammersmith Hospital, which is great news as I won't have to see every day the place rife with horrid memories, and it's also a lil' more convenient for travelling from my dwellings (not so much from my office, but still a net gain).
Sheena, Magical Moon, June, Dawn, I hope this morning is sunny for you, as the London sky is right now. Waiting to pack for Mustique, I am off for some shopping -- speak laterz x
Makes me think of amanda holden, every time I see her on telly I say out loud "what's she done to her face?"
Dawn 1 ....... I've eventually plucked up the courage & joined this forum.
Hi guys, I'm new to this site, Dawn 1 & I were on the same ward ............ a real character I have to say! 🙂
I'm a single parent with 11 yr twins and had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy on the 6th July (lump was a predicated grade 2). Results came back on Tuesday, grade 3 (aggressive). Unfortunately, I didn't have the 2mm clear margins and one of my lumph nodes is cancerous so back in on Wednesday for shaving and axillary clearance.
Jill, you describe the sensaton so well: it's exactly how I feel, every appointment rubs the C thing in my face, and my heart sinks. I am glad nonetheless that the goat was well behaved to you, despite the indecent exposure of your clinical data. Nothing to be ashamed of anyway, I think -- for fear of the people talking, I basically shouted my diagnosis through a tannoy myself. Being basically a gay man in a female body, therefore straight, I haven't got, nor will ever have, a "coming out" experience, but I've had my BC outing fairly publicly and early in the process...
Ladies, I stay away for one day and I discover we are going to Mustique? Wikipedia here I come, I vaguely suspect it's somewhere exotic... on second thought, I don't care where it is or what it is; when do we leave? 🙂
You ladies can have my champers tho, and I'll have your caviar (and oysters! Where are the oysters?) x
