Am so distressed of chemo , the op was WLE of lump ,, hope we will get through all this hard time hon, xxxx
I have been booked in to go for an exam tomorrow morning, as I’ve spoken to my BC nurse.
She has told me her concern outlook is low, but she knows I will be freaking out otherwise. Just hoping all is well, as I don’t want any delays in starting my chemo on 1st April!
Sorry to hear your diagnosis. If you have had both CT scan & MRI scan which have come back clear, I would think that results would be accurate as both are good diagnostic tools on their own, but especially when both tests performed results should be reliable.
I think many of us get a bit paranoid about the other breast, which is probably normal given the situation we find ourselves in.
Good luck with your treatment x
Hi Hannah, I too had an MRI scan and that did show up other areas in my 'good' breast Which lead to further biopsy's, luckily they all came back clear. An MRI is very sensitive so I would imagine that would have shown up anything of concern
I hope your OK it's so scary what we are going through xx sending lots of positive thoughts to you xx
I was diagnosed on 19th feb with invasive ductal carcinoma her2+.
I am starting my chemo, herceptin and perjeta on 1st April, and after 6/7 rounds, I will undergo a double mastectomy.
My MRI and CT scan both with contrast came back clear for my other breast and it hasn’t spread- not even to my lymph nodes.
I am currently on hormone injections as I’m freezing my eggs (I’m 25 with no children yet. Sadly).
However, I now feel like I can feel something in my ‘good’ breast. What do you think the chances are? Given the good news from my scans?
