thanks Tolliebelle.

cant even get the scan done - so stressed!

i found a lump on my neck and my oncologist said it was too small to stick a needle in just yet but she wanted me to have a ct scan in 3 weeks (its been nearly a year since diagnosis so thats not unusual) and she wanted to see me again a week later to give me the results herself (usually results given by breast care nurses) so she could keep an eye on the lump.
it is now 2 weeks and 5 days since that appointment and i have had the appointment through for the results - but no appointment for the actual scan! how she is supposed to give me results of a test i havent had is beyond me. I have tried chasing it - i saw a member of the surgical team who said she would chase it up for me, then last week i spoke to the breast care nurses - still no scan date. i'm going out of my mind worrying - soo much that my eczema has made an appearance.
not sure what to do now. am terrified its the cancer back - a regional recurrance so soon after finishing chemo (mid feb 2013) would be bad news. ive done everything i can to distract myself but enough is enough
