Your Private Message facility is now working.
To use the PM system you can do it two ways, one by clicking on the messages tab at the top right of this page (near the sign out button) this takes you to your private message area and where you can search for the user you are looking for - using their user name.
Alternatively, if you click on the icon of the user you want to send a private message to (within a thread) this will take you into their profile and then there's a link from there for you to send a private message.
You can put your email address in a PM but not live on the forums, this is because anyone searching the web could get access to it.
Hi whified i asked for double but they wouldnt do it. Im trip neg and had 2 tumours in left breast and 9 pos nodes i have a fibromenda in right breast which is causing me lot of anxiety so this will be sorted when i get bit stronger x
I was diagnosed on 20th Nov, triple neg and had my WLE and SLNB on Wed 10th. My lump is 23mm, I will get my results on 29th Dec. I'm 35 and have 3 girls - 9, 7 and 2. I will start chemo some time in Jan (depending on whether more surgery is needed node or margins wise). I am not in too much pain at all which is great. Im trying to be positive most of the time but sometimes it just gets to me! Im sorry everyone has this to go through too.
i hope you get your op date confirmed asap and then you can cross the days down in your diary knowing that you are a day closer to the end of this.
Cannot believe the further developments in your house! Poor you guys .. Big cyber hugs x. As if you didn't already have enough to contend with. You are sooooo overdue some good news and luck! 🍀
I had the cold cap for 2x EC but no it going to bother for my third. Hair started to come out at about a week after #2 EC in significant tufts. So it has delayed but only delayed the inevitable for me. In reality was only ever going to just delay. Hair too fine to really stick around or not be noticeable. 😁 Oddly enough though I am not upset about my hair loss, in fact rather fascinated in seeing how little or much comes out when brushing!?!? Will have to shave off but leaving until really no option.. At the moment when wearing a wooly hat it looks like I have a head full of hair as sticking out under hat. So much so that I have only told close friends, so at the moment the whole BC thing is under wraps, literally! LOL 😁
Goodness me you have a lot on your plate at the moment, what can the Drs suggest or is it a case of monitoring and adjusting your sons diet? I understand your thoughts are about looking after your son, but don't forget about you! If only for 2 minutes! ( a difficult task when you are a Mummy I know) so I am sending over cyber hugs x
Are you booked in for surgery yet? I am looking at surgery but have 6 or 7 rounds of chemo first, having EC chemo (also TNBC). Meeting with ONC gave me the all clear in so much that it hasn't spread further than u/arm lymph nodes so for the timebeing it is the best result I could have hoped for 😀 what a rollercoaster hey!
Dmcf - excellent news from your scans, must be such a relief and now at leat you can rest assured that they will monitor and keep a check on this for you. Do I take it that you are surgery first (if you dont mind me asking)? I am chemo first (on round 2) and then the plan was surgery and radiotherapy
... I am currently at home awaiting the iminent onc meeting this afternoon to hear back the results from my latest CT and PET scans from earlier in the week. In reality I have over the last few weeks tried to get my head around the 'worst case' scenario and implications for my family... but still scared stiff. Dont think you can ever really fully prepare but for me, knowledge is power and then I can then take some control. Still finding this all a bit odd... as if I didnt know I had breast cancer then I would be walking around totally clueless as to what is going on inside my body?
In reality though all of this is just one hurdle of what will probably be many and like you say, work to a plan, be it the current one or a new one - an excellent idealogy and one I subscribe to!
I'm sorry to read you're having such a tough time at the moment. As brewster has mentioned, do give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000 Here you can talk through your worries and share your thoughts and concerns with somone who wll offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practical information. Lines are open weekdays 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.
Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator
Diagnosed grade 3 TNBC and lymph node involvement on 24th September and now after MRI and CT scan looking at suspicious liver area and abdominal nodes! Waiting on booking and results of PET scan.
So my initial thoughts are that two seperate areas flagged on CT scan cannot be good ... Just wondered if there is anyone else with a similar history and if it all turned out OK? Not a gambling person but at the moment feel that the odds are stacked against me. This last month has been one big nightmare!
