Hi, I recently had 3 biopsys and they are really sore for a couple of weeks or more, have a shower with it on but not within 48 hours then change dressing after shower as plaster will come off more easily. I had lots of bruising and dont lift anything too heavy as will cause discomfort.
It will get better but not in 48 hours, so try to take it easy 🙂
I am sorry that you find yourself here but you are probably getting to know that they are a wonderful bunch of ladies who will be able to give you so much help and support, we will help you get through this.
Hi Skye, yes, it certainly is a shock when you are told it is cancer. All of us on here have been where you are now, so lots of support. Ask any questions and bring any worries here. It's useless to tell you not to worry, but I can tell you that the journey is easier than you are thinking at this time. I'm three weeks post op, and never thought I would say that! Sending you a big hug. X
Hi sorry to hear your news. It is a shock to us all especially at a young age. Have gone though this earlier this year, diagnosed 13 Feb, mastectomy 17 March, I know exactly how shocked and scared you must be feeling right now. There are loads of lovely ladies on here who can offer advice and support to us all, with all our different types of cancer and treatments. Sending you a big hug.
Welcome to the forum, although you would much rather not be here.
Although it's a shock, thankfully it's been picked up so that it can be dealt with. BC treatment is very effective now.
There is plenty of support here from those of us who are going through what you are now as well as those of us further down the road.
Obviously, you'll find out more in Thursday & do come & chat here whenever you feel you need to.
