i never gave up ! every time i was fobbed off i asked for another scan etc !! think they dreaded me coming in lol! but if its got me this far please just know your own body and ask for another oppinion . there are loads of new treatments being trialed so you never know which one may work for you ,thanks for the fundraisers im still here .
That's great news and gives hope to those of us less far down the road who've had a few treatments fail that there might be something else out there that works if we can hang on long enough to find it.
well its a long story but here i go ,my left breast was really sore so in 2005 i went to the gp who said it was probably hormonal ,1 then as it wasnt getting better and was dimpled and ached all the time i was reffered to hospital in the dec ,i had needle aspiration and mamogram but was told that as the fluid was clear it wasnt anything to worry about ,by this time i was really upset and just knew they were wrong ,i insisted on being seen a few weeks later where they did a core biopsy which revealed lobular carcinoma in situ ,i was started on a course of chemo to try shrink the tumour ,this made me so ill i was admitted to hospital a few times ,i had ulcers in my mouth and couldnt stand up .the anti sickness drugs ddint work for me .i must admit it was a really hard time ,i had my mastectomy and was told after that out of the 16 lymphnodes remeoved they found cancer in 12 of them and after a scan i had spots on my liver ,the outcome wasnt good so i again had further chemo which made me rock in pain the bones were so sore i couldnt bear to be touched ! my skin came off my hands and feet i also lost my nails on my hands and feet too .so a total mess this was coping with loosing my long hair too ,which as you know is an awful thing to cope with as the wigs arnt too nice ,i wore loads of beautiful bandanas at that time .ive had various tests on susupicious lumps and bumps recently had a full bone scan ,i have osteoporosis partly from the arimadex and not being given a bone strenghtener which is vital as this puts you into menopause which affects your bones .there have been a number of things misdiognosed for me but thankfully after my latest scan i was told that im ned and after 6 yrs of treatments am now discharged from clinic unless i feel anything else is wrong ,im having a total hip replacement on the 18th of dec but hopefully i can now start to look to the future with my family .so there is hope after diognosis ,6/9 months ! and now 6 yrs later proves it .
