Hi Alley73 - So sorry to hear you had bad news again 😞 My mammogram was clear but Im waiting on a scan now, I dont know how long that will be. The doctor said she could feel the hard tissue but my mammogram was clear so Im crossing my fingers.
I've found out today a friend has breast cancer, shattered me. I really hate this. Take care, will keep you posted & let me know how the op goes on Thursday xxx
Your doing really well Ally by the sounds of it, really positive. Thats the way I feel, if I have cancer I want to face it head on. Had to tell my parents today and got really upset, I hate putting worry on them but I work for them and need the time off work so cant keep many secrets!
Will let you know the out come and will be thinking of you on the 21st I should know for definate on the 22nd xx
Im hoping for the same outcome LSM72 trying to stay positive but its amazing how much you life is put on hold waiting for the outcome. I didn't realise I planned so much !!
Got my appointment for my mamogram next Tuesday 20th then a follow up on 22nd if need be for further tests. My GP explained they were really busy & to expect a 6 week wait but I will be seen in 4 weeks since I found the lump, 3 weeks since I was refered. Its shrunk a bit I think. I've poked a prodded so much I think I forget what it was like.
Will let you know how I get on x
Sorry to hear of your wait,an how long might have to 😞 so wrong when something so life changing..maybe it is because of the timing of the christmas break up,i myself was seen in the 2 week window that i do know they say you should be from when you first go to doctor,but every area diff to i think that you live,just like waiting of results,i've had to wait longer for getting these back because the christmas an new year also ,and hopefully my wait over on Monday all things crossed,i didnt have pain just lump found when showering that felt small but is 5x5cm 😞 ..it is true the waiting of appointments is the hardest and getting answers an the waiting of test results,i myself have been lucky as over 7wks since first went docs,i had call next day,seen at hosp next wk for a ultrasound an mammogram,all very scary but glad got out way to then 2wks later a core guided biopsy after showed not only a lump but large suspicious mass in my left breast,the not knowing is the worse ,i would get back on to your doctor now christmas an new year gone an see if can push for sooner appointment,i do feel your pain of waiting an anquish of wondering what if's an what stage if have ,not the best time over christmas too,just try keep busy best you can makes the days go quicker,the quiet times can be the worse for thinking,ive cried my far share of tears :(,i really do hope you get seen sooner,an feel free to message anytime,big hugs ally x
