Fab news - believe it believe it - we have been on a roller coaster really and there are some dips. I will look at the Haven site and probably will have to contact my breast cancer nurse as its not improving (it may be a little worse) but thats not really what I want it think. Have a lovely weekend - I have nothing much planned but I suppose some cleaning will come into it. xx
Yes it is good to compare, I have never claimed to be normal neither so we have a couple of things in common. I think mine is lymphodemia too. My scar is from sort of central chest to almost nipple so that bit is hard and also sore but the other side of my boob is the swollen bit and also under my arm a little. Let me know the results from doctor. Happy weekend.
My dates sort of matched yours only I started rads mid October, how is your boob now? Mine is quite solid and although I dont take pain killers its always sore, I still keep moisturising. But have some more painful days when I get miserable but after a couple of days I cope again, I suppose its all part of the process, but it would be good to hear your side.
I had my surgery (WLE) a few days before you and my radiotherapy starts next week - I was surprised by the delay as I knew that the NHS guidelines say it should start within 31 days but a bit more research told me that they aim to start within 31 days of declaring us fit to receive the treatment (which I guess is the first meeting with the Oncologist) and anything up to 3 months delay is not considered to be a problem.
I'll be starting a March/April radiotherapy thread next week so we can all compare notes as we go along so hope we'll see you on there too?
Ive got a date to visit the hospital for my radio therapy plan etc, but its not until 2nd April, my lumpdectomy was end of jan,ive healed up well, feel fine, am fit, is it normal to wait so long. Starting pills this week. i imagined would be sooner.Anyone has any comments on this june
