Re: Waiting for scan results and scared

dormant. Going for bone scan on Mon as got one or 2 ribs hurting.

Re: Waiting for scan results and scared

Hi

 

Same here - waiting also

 

Diagnosed 9/7, had my lumpectomy and nodes removed 23.7 and although I have been told chemo is planned (grade 3) I will not know until my results are through. I have been given an appt date of 6.8.15 so I am fortunate in knowing when my next milestone will be. You are so right, once things start moving, you can plan. 

 

To keep busy until my appt, I have that many lunch appts booked with friends, I will be as large as a barge by then!

Re: Waiting for scan results and scared

Hi, I'm also in the waiting position, seems to take forever,diagnosed 3/7 Lobular invasive.Last week was told I had to have further tests,bone scan and CT before they will operate.After haering this, I actually at first refused and said that I just wanted to proceed.I just felt like sticking my head in the sand, no more bad news. Anyway, one scan is for this Thur.Hope all goes well for you, I'm sure that it becomes easier once things start moving. x

Re: Waiting for scan results and scared

Hi furyfan, I was also diagnosed with lobular cancer 2 weeks before you on 4th June. I had an MRI and then waited 2 weeks for the results - that was the worst time for me so far. I was then given 3 options regarding surgery or hormone treatment and I am now waiting to see an oncologist to learn more about the hormones. The waiting really is the hardest part, all we can do is try to stay positive and try to distract ourselves. Do you have an appointment date for the results?
