Re: Just joined.

Hi Susieone

As the other two lovely ladies have said, welcome to the forum and big hugs to you. I'm very sorry to hear that you feel depressed and weepy and have an infection. What the others have said is so true - it is a real emotional rollercoaster. I found it hard immediately after my surgery, a combination of the reality of things and the anaesthetics. I was advised to take one day at a time or even one hour at a time when I felt low.


Everyone on here really does understand how you are feeling. So do come on here any time you need to offload or need support or advice. It has helped me so much throughout.


Sending you strength for the 29th when you get your results and hope they will reassure you. Do come back and share if you feel like it.

Evie xx

Hi ladybowler and jobey68

Thank you for your kind words it's good to know there are people out there who really understand.

My family and friends are great but I feel they dont fully understand. Just because it got caught early and I've got through surgery without blubbering like a baby ( which I did on my diagnosis and first biopsy). My friends call me a tough cookie but I'm not really.
As you say the results will be in soon and hopefully infection on the run too. I'll keep chin up and take each day as it comes.
I'll pop into forum as often as I need and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

P.s. these antibiotics taste disgusting. Lol

Hello and welcome to the forum, not a place that any of us would choseese to be but one thing is for sure you will get loads of help and support from the wonderful ladies on here.


Sorry to hear that you have developed an infection, that wont help with your recovery, you are only a couple of weeks since surgery so you will probably still be getting over the effects of the aneasthetic which combined with the infection it is bound to make you feel low.


Come on here whenver you need to and we will help you as much as we can, thats is the beauty of this forum you are with ladies who know exactly what you are going through


Sending you hugs

Re: Just joined.

Hi Susieone welcome to the forum, it's a real emotional rollercoaster and just when you think you've got this something will rock the boat and unsettle you again, so your feelings are perfectly normal. 


Just try and go with the flow and deal with things a day at a time, once you get your results this week things feel a lot more settled as you will know exactly what is going to happen and whatever that may be it certainly is a better place to be than not knowing. Xx Jo
