Hi I am also waiting for the results of a biopsy on my lump and also have a lump in my armpit. I feel terrified and so upset as I cannot have my own children and was about to start Egg Donation in Spain who have now put my treatment on hold. Really feel for you , hopefully we will both be fine. Sending a big hug to you xxx P.S I also hear my results on Thurs xxx
i am so sorry you are going through this. When I read your post about the elephant in room it rang so true.i was diagnosed a month ago and how I hate that I have this very unwelcomed travelling companion now.
I have been an obsessive googler the main time is at night when I wake up at 2.00 in the morning and reach for the iPad.
The waiting is the absolute worse thing and when you get your results you can plan and there is more of a sense of calm.
I hope that you have good news with your results but if not then there is lots of support on here which is such a help. You are not alone in all you have been through so far.
Thank you Moses, for your reply. I am sorry to hear that youve gone through all this too. How is your wife doing now. I hope there is some good news. x
I am going on thurs with my husband....my family are being very supportive, but at the moment during this wait, it seems like there is always an 'elephant in the room'. Its awful. I went to work yesterday which helped, as it took my mind of things for a few hours.
Its like, for a few moments you forget whats happening...back to normality. Then suddenly, its back like a kick in the stomach. ;(
My wife was in your exact situation about 6 weeks ago, I really sympathize. We both suffered terrible stress in that first week while waiting for Thursday to arrive.
If you can take someone with you to these appointments, it helps. You are right about Google, and yet it helps to have knowledge, makes you feel less powerless.
Hope you feel stronger and all the best.
i remember your post the other week, I replied to you then. I am very sorry that it seems like you will be facing a diagnosis of BC. This is a hideous time emotionally and psychologically at the start of the process of finding exactly what type of cancer it is and the treatment you will have. You are right, Google WILL fry your mind......as the trouble is until you have actual biopsy results ( which contain the relevant information to your lump) you will be none the wiser as to your next step. When at your stage I had no understanding of all the different BC variables, what they meant and how they were treated. However, there WILL be a next step/ s and those steps will be treatment! 2 cm is small as these things go, and the point is you have been proactive in getting the necessary tests so far, that is the most important thing at this point. Try not to let your mind jump too far ahead, and break things into smaller sections e.g. The next step is the results of the biopsy and after that there will be another small step, finding out your treatment, then another step in the first treatment....etc. It is such a massive feeling of your 'world being turned upside down' that you are going to feel shakey and every range of human emotions intensified into a few weeks.
We will be here though...those who have been through it a long time ago....and those who are in active treatment now, to listen and support.
