Thanks Sazza for the good wishes, it's so nice to read all the great comments, everyone is so suppotive of each other xx Not a club we would wish to join but making the most of it!!
Have you started your new job yet? I'm in a similar position, same job just a different Line Manager and possibly a new office, this will be happening whilst I'm away from work so I have arranged with HR to still report to my existing manager for the time being. That is a weight off my mind.
Hi ladies I agree the waiting is very painful, I had my diagnosis on 26th May and having lumpectomy on 22nd June ... and that 4 weeks can't come soon enough for me. Then it's 2 weeks waiting for results and several weeks for radiotherapy and like some of you I too have a family history so will be having the genetic test shortly so that will mean more waiting to determine my next course of action.
The only time I haven't waited so far is for the biopsy, they did it on the same day they called me back as they couldn't see it via the ultra sound, that was a blessing, but nobody said anything about what they saw so was very positive that it wasn't BC.
Anyone would think we didn't have anything better to do in life!! So glad I found the forum Suzie xx
Thanks for your reply. Even though Ive been feeling positive its so hard when you think you know youre getting the results and you dont! I thought I would be celebrating tonight but instead I feel really drained! Good luck to you for Tuesday! Hope it all goes well - sending positive vibes your way - keep me posted! x
I went to the docs a few weeks ago as i had been suffering pain in my left breast for quite a while and it had built up more and more. As my Mum had breast cancer I am super conscious so thought I would get it checked out. GP referred me to the breast clinic and I went last Thursday. Had a mammo and my breast was clear, but they found a lump on my other breast that neither the GP or Consultant had felt in examination. They aspirated it and it isnt a cyst, so I went back for a biopsy that afternoon. They took 3 good samples and the radiologist was very reassuring that he thought it had a high probability of being B9, which is great. You still worry though - Its great that he was positive, but I still need to hear that the path report confirms that it is B9. I had an appt today for my results, but they called me an hour before to say my results werent back yet and Ive got to wait another week - that really took the wind out of my sails - Ive been staying really upbeat and trying to be positive, but its such a worry - Ive got to gather all of my positive strength to get through another week. its such a strange time for me as I have been on garden leave at work and start my new job a week on Monday - I had hoped for good news today some time to get over this and then start my new job and now this will hang over me for another week, as positive as I am trying to be. Did you guys get a predicition from your radiologist - were they accurate? Much love to all those waiting and for everyone with their results. I know if this is B9 then Im incredibly lucky and this waiting would pale into insignificance if it was malignant but its a very difficult wait. xxxxxx
