Re: Surgery May 2019

Hi 3331melanie, had the blue die injection last August and still have blue nipple, not as bright as at first but still there. My consultant told me that he had one patient that still had a blue nipple two years later, definitely a talking point!!

Re: Surgery May 2019

Hi meline

 

All the old black solid blood now removed not sure when my op will now happen as my surgeon got it wrong and now said it will be in July. At least I  can have a really good holiday before the next step. I’ll get there in the end but feeling a bit deflated at the moment.

Thinking positively towards everyone else and wishing you all well xx

Re: Surgery May 2019

Thanks Mel

Wishing u the very best for surgery this week and as u said this time next week we might feel like we are getting somewhere. I have the results from MRI on Wednesday so just hoping they have not found anything else.

I think I am going to be as  honest as I can be with my 10 year old without using any big medical words

Re: Surgery May 2019

Hi Kaylee

 

wishing you the very best for 10th. I can relate to you - does seem an age since diagnosis to treatment! This time next week we can say op done and on to next stage! 

My children are 18 and 14 so was able to explain everything I know to be factual at this point.

Hugs Mel xx

Hi

Mines on the right side. It’s good to hear it’s doable!  Hope you next sessions will be ok - I’m sure they will although I can’t answer about the breath holding.

Re: Surgery May 2019

Hello

I am scheduled for surgery on the 10th. I am nervous but I just want to get on and get treatment started. It's seems like it's been an age since diagnosis. 

Big and scary day today though as have to tell my children what's going on as need to give them a bit of time to get used to the idea before Friday. I have a 10 year old and 3 year old  - any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated πŸ™‚

Re: Surgery May 2019

Melanie, radiotherapy was very doable, I did feel really tired right from the start last time. You just have to rest when you can. Last time it was my right boob, I’m a bit worried about the radiotherapy on the left side. I’ve heard some people have to hold their breath when it’s on the left. Hopefully it will all be fine, I had 25 sessions last time but they were over very quickly each day. Xx

Re: Surgery May 2019

Hi DiKat

I will be having radiotherapy and also tamoxifen. I had the same thing on my right breast three years ago. So at least I know what is ahead of me. Xx

Hi DiKat

Hopefully results next Weds when I see the surgeon again. Back home today (woohoo!) and trying to take it easy. Under arm is quite bruised and sore but rest seems OK. 

Good luck for your next steps 🌸

Hi Mel

Yes, I think they will check my bloods again. Saw Macmillan nurse today and she said once my body realises it’s not getting another dose of chemo my bloods should start to rise. Not long for you now xx

Hope you are doing ok Linda.
They told me staining may be permanent. Guess it’s a small price to pay 😊 although would be nice I’d its not as will be a reminder xx

I had SNLB last april and my nipple is still blue. Surgeon said hopefully it will get absorbed but previouly they had only seen it last 9 months. My nipple was cut round and moved up though in October so maybe that is why. I heard it can be permanant too hope not.

I am staying in 1 night again as I live 3 hours plus away.

Love Linda xxx

 

Hope all doing ok.

Hi DiKit

sounds like you had a really busy day! Bet you were pleased to get home! I’m having the blue dye too - apparently it may leave a permanent stain!  Will they check your bloods again or are the happy to go ahead as planned - I hope it does as only 2 weeks and that will soon be here! 

A week today for me - never thought I’d say I can’t wait for surgery but I can’t. Will feel like I’m starting the journey to recovery .

i know what you mean about wanting normality- I miss it! Stil im getting fir walking everyday!

hugs to you all Mel x

Re: Surgery May 2019

Had pre assessment for op yesterday. It’s planned to go ahead on the 16th. Spent whole morning at hospital as had to have bloods, ecg and echocardiogram because I’d been having palpitations during chemo. Good that they’re being thorough! Had to also see the surgeon to sign consent. Because she can’t feel lump, said I would need a wire localisation and WLE. Will also have the blue dye to locate lymph’s and 4 sentinel nodes removed. Should still be a day case. Apparently lots of my bloods are below what they need to be, can’t remember which ones apart from hb which is 106, so mildly anaemic and neutrophils which were 1.26. It’s 3 weeks since my last chemo so that’s pretty rubbish considering I had 7 filgrastim (injections to stimulate immune system). Home for a quick lunch and then back to chemo suite at hospital for infusion of Herceptin and Pertuzumab (targeted therapy because I’m Her2 positive). Good job I wasn’t due another chemo with those neutrophils (have to be a minimum of 1.5 to have chemo). Only took about hour and half so not too bad. Only another 14 to go! Felt a bit sickly when I got home but ok now. Funny because I’ve not felt sickly during chemo but this is the first time I’ve not had anti sickness medication or steroids. Was told by nurses I might just feel some aches and pains. My feet and ankles have swollen a bit today, not liking that...think I maybe overdid things at the beginning of the week (walked 5.5 miles on Monday). It’s just frustrating though, want to feel normal for me...like a 50yr old, not an 80yr old 😞 Have to remember, small steps.

Love and hugs to all πŸ’•
