Thanks for your replies. Yes I have printed out those publications Jo. Thanks.
I work in a care home on night duty and there is some lifting involved though we do have electric hoists. Also lots of ironing/cleaning jobs to do *rolleyes*. Bit worried about weakness in arm after the lump and node removal.
Also another worry I have which I havent seen posted here or anywhere is that have been experiencing this feeling where ,in the middle of my chest, right near where the lump was spotted on the ultrasound it feel tight and sort of stiff. And sometimes it feels as though I cant take a deep breath...but when I try to take a deep breath, I can. I am not short of breath or anything, it is more of a pressure, tight feeling. Does anyone else get that type of sensation?It is very scarey. I guess it is down to anxiety but I was experiencing this before my diagnosis. I guess about 2 months on and off now (have had lots of family stress last 2 years or so) . Could this be pressure from the lump (even though it is tiny) pressing on heart/lungs? I got swimming once a week or so and notice this feeling more after swimming (could be fumes from chlorine? )
Anyway, will mention it at the pre op...........
