Re: results in on thursday - now getting scared

Hi joeashflame.

 

sorry to hear they didn't get clear margins, you now know what to expect so I'm sure your next op will be easier.  I have tried to treat myself after every hospital appointment, I find it helps, a nice lunch or even a cake.

 

now you know your treatment plan I hope you feel a little better, rads are very doable. I finished mine on monday and although you get worse after it's finished,  at least I'm at home so I can rest when I need it,

 

the side effects of the hormone therapy has freaked me out but my friend had it 9 years ago. She had a very bad time on tamoxifen and they switched her to zoladex,  which I will be taking, and she had almost no side effects at all so I know it does happen. 

 

Keep celebrating,  if you can't indulge yourself going through this then when can you, every day we can smile at the world is a day worth celebrating. 

 

take care

Re: results in on thursday - now getting scared

Hi everyone, results are in, measured at 15mm and nothing has spread to my lymph nodes which is great.  Only downside is that they didnt take enough healthy tissue so I have to go back for another minor op a week on wednesday, still good news for me.  After that its radiotherapy and then the drugs, having read side effects etc not looking forward to that my flushes are bad enough at the moment without any help.

Left hospital and went out for a meal and wine with my hubby, we will celebrate anything, any excuse.  Good luck to everybody and loads of love x

Good luck with your results tomorrow, hope you get 'good news'. Xx


Gemini, your results were same as mine last week although I am Triple Negative, so have to wait for 6 weeks to have more scans and tests before the rads. More Waiting and worry.!

Hi

 -

Welcome to the forum that nobody really wants to have to join but you've come to the right place - this forum has been a great support for me, knowing that others know what you are going through and can support you.

 

I too was diagnosed late January after going for the routine screening mamogram

 

I'm doing my radiotherapy at the moment and nearly half way through it.

 

Good luck for your results - the waiting is really terrible but you'll feel better once you get your results and treatment plan

Re: results in on thursday - now getting scared

Thankyou everybody for your positive responses. Think I had a bit of a wobble yesterday because I feel much better today.  I do feel fine after the surgery, slight tenderness but dont need painkillers or anything.  My hubby is coming with me tomorrow and I will keep you posted.

Hi

 

Sorry you find yourself here, but you'll get loads of support and advice from the wonderful ladies here. All the worrying and waiting is so horrible but you WILL get through it.

 

You're bound to be scared tomorrow, it's only natural. Do you have someone to go with you?

 

Good luck for tomorrow and do keep us posted

Hi welcome.

 

you have come to the right place,  the worry is to be expected, it's just torture, your mind goes into overdrive with all the waiting.

 

I have just finished my radiotherapy,  never thought it would be easy but it was not nearly as bad as I expected. It's now almost four months since I found out and that's the treatment done. Just five to ten years hormone therapy. 

 

You'll get there, it's difficult when you feel great and it's your treatment that makes you feel bad. 

 

Wishing you loads of luck with your results

Re: results in on thursday - now getting scared

Hi

 

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It is a very scary time but we somehow find the strength to deal with whatever treatment we have to go through. I was also found to have bc after a routine mammogram and like you never thought it would happen to me. I think we all think that and it is a huge shock to the system. My tumour was 12mm, grade 3 and hormone receptive. I've just finished 20 sessions of radiotherapy and am on hormone meds for 5 years. You will get through this difficult time and can gain support from others who are either going through treatment or have been there and come out the other side. There's also the breast care helpline where someone will be only too happy to listen and offer advice. It's a typical reaction to want to stay strong for others but be kind to yourself and let others help when you need them.

I hope you're recovering well from your surgery. Let us know how your results appointment goes.

Take care

Kathy

results in on thursday - now getting scared

Hi everybody, never thought I would ever join a forum, not on facebook and didnt think it was me or indeed if anything like this would ever happen to me.  Well it has and I admit after putting a brave face on and keeping strong for everybody else Im scared.  was diagnose with bc day before good friday after a routine mamogram.  I had my surgery last wednesday and go for results in two days.  Im sure it will be fine and up to today dont think I was thinking about what happens next, ie radio and then tamox.  Anyway wish me luck and thankyou, good luck to all.
