My husband - who has been a tower of strenght thus far - seems to have caved in today. We had to cancel our holiday, ( we should be off to the States tomorrow to meet up with my brother and his wife) and I found out today that he hasn't done it. It seems that the people we booked through OPODO (don't ever use them) have not cancelled the flights - despite emails and phone calls - and we can't claim on our insurance unless they are cancelled. It has driven him mad and now we stand to loose 2k. I can't believe it - but then I can because of course, this is happening to him too so I can't be mad at him, can I? It's just awful and i'm really p*****d off too with all these unsolicitated funeral emails that I am receiving.
Kim, can I ask how long you had to wait after your op for results? I was only diagnosed yesterday so it's a bit of a blur but I think the surgeon said I would see him a few weeks after the op, that sounds a long time to wait?
We're the same day then Jill, we'll be able to swap notes once we're back typing
I'll bet the palpitations are anxiety, I have a pretty constant physical feeling of anxiety in my chest and stomach, and am so churned up that I have spells of retching, sometimes until I am actually sick. It's rubbish but we'll both get there.
Well, another newly diagnosed here, was told yesterday that although the lump I went to have investigated was fine, while the radiographer was looking at it on ultrasound she spotted a suspect 6mm area elsewhere. It was that that she took core biopsy from and it turns out to be a stage one (at least that's what it looks like so far). Had chest xray (scary as I smoked for years until I gave up over a year and a half ago, so that's frightening me).
Lumpectomy etc booked in for 24th, then radiotherapy a few weeks later, providing status remains stage 1.
I know exactly what you mean about feeling anxious and sad Jill1998, gorgeous sunny day though helps lifts the spirits a little. x
