THe surgeon was lovely as was the nurse, she went on to talking about bras and false boobs, and I (horribly) thought just shut up! Shut up! its not the bloody same.......shut up
She showed me this sponge thing, and i looked at it, didnt touch it, but thought thats me, thats going to be me. Waking up after the op, glance down and just more disfigurement, more heartache, more "how much more can I take"
I am and always have been a strong person, but sometimes, it just gets too much and sometimes, that strong person isnt who you think they are.......hurting
Ok, so I went for my consultation on Monday and this time took a friend. Glad I did as the news was I need a mastectomy, I just cant believe it. My world has imploded, thought the diagnosis was bad, but now this, words truly fail me. On top of that I also two years ago was diagnosed with crohs/colitis, and after a routine exam, the surgeon ruptured my bowel and I ended up with peritonitis and now have a stoma! At just turned 50 this year, its been utterly dreadful.
I recently came out of a horrendous relationship and I tried so hard to get myself up and running and done chartity walk, and been on lots of mini breaks and kept healthy and busy and now this!
I feel like I am going to be a freak, stoma and one breast.....................
Join the club re osteo and more pills! I struggled with a pain killer before BC! hey ho such is life x
Yes, cancer is not fair...if it was, only criminals and like should get it! 😕
That is our nearest hospital lol, we live out in the country 25 miles from Ipswich.
We are midway between Ipswich and Great yarmouth, no hospitals in between unfortunately.
Hope you and Nikki had a productive appointment today, Barry and that journey went ok. Bet Nikki is exhausted now...you too, probably!
I was told that radiotherapy would start to tire you as it progresses, try to get as much rest as you can Jill.
hiya, yes you can drive during rads no problem. I am driving myself there and back 50 mile round trip. A bit of a nightmare, and only done 2 so far lol. x
Francine my birthday is the 17th.. you will be fine I feel it in my boob! 🙂 x
Hold on a minute Jill, I said I'd agree to chemo, but I didn't say anything about eating sprouts, THAT really would be the limit ! Only joking actually, I love them! Congratulations on being over half way through radiotherapy, you're on the downward slope now, heading back to a normal life - whatever normal is!! Xx
