Thanks so much for your reply , it really means so much .
how are you coping ? When were you diagnosed ?
I feel a bit silly as just don’t have an answers yet but this two week wait has been torture I’m sure my kids suspect something and I’m petrified of the possibility of telling them the worst news as I’m a single parent.
i know I shouldn’t go there until it’s confirmed but the mind is a powerful thing .
Anyway I do hope your okay and that little dog is giving you lots of attention . I have a miniature schnauzer, she is my wee best friend .
lots of love
I was diagnosed on the 17th October but had to wait for an MRI and then HER2 results to come back. It’s a pure waiting game you get a diagnosis and then they need to gather more information they are very thorough it just means we have to wait for results. I now know that I have 2 tumours both different cancers, I have a surgery date for lumpectomy on the 28th and still don’t know my treatment plan until after surgery as they need to do more tests.
Your not being silly the wait is torture!
i do hope that your results come back normal, when I was waiting my doctor said a lot of them come back normal sometimes we have lumps and bumps and they are just part of us which was true for 1 of my friends.
Love my Dog! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
Hi Cheeboe and Karyn74,

Im keeping everything crossed for both of you regarding your results. Good Luck please let us know how you get on.

Hi Lizzy and Tina, thank you so much for the support. I've got my MRI scan tomorrow then hopefully some results by end of week. Struggling to stay positive as have pains in arms and shoulders that ct help thinking are metasteses. Shouldn't borrow trouble I know!
Karyn I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you tomorrow xxxx
Hugs to everyone!! Xxx
Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and best wishes it’s really been such a support . Thankfully been a busy weekend at work but almost a bit scared of the appointment tomorrow.
will keep in touch and let you know how it goes
lots of love to you all
Try not yo overthink it the pains could be down to stress you’ll be amazed the effect stress can have on us. I know it’s hard but stay as positive as you can it really helps. X
Thanks Lizzy, I'm so grateful for the support, especially at such a stressful time for you. I'm here to listen if you need to vent as well. Sounds like your cockapoo is a blessing, we have an 8 month old shih tzu Ruth xxx
so I had my appointment yesterday for biopsy results and Good News , it’s a Fibroadenoma.
such relief and have slept for hours since !
i appreciate the support you lovely people gave me whilst going through such a tough journey yourselves . You are all amazing and I wish you all the good luck and good health for the future .
lots of love
Thank you for letting us know how you got on with your results That is really good news it is not BC. I am so relieved to hear that you don’t have to go through this agonising journey. However, you did go through some of it waiting on results from tests and that is a really tough time. I too am starting to see light at the end of my tunnel as I am starting my Radiotherapy next week for a month and hormone therapy treatment seems to have calmed a bit on my body now. All being well I hope to get my new normal life back and return to work in January if I feel ok. Then have my other breast surgery later next year.
Wishing you happiness and good health now and in the future.
love Netty xx
So pleased for you Karyn. This is fantastic news. So much news on here it’s wonderful.
Love Tina x x
That's fantastic Karen xxx
Hi Lizzy, Karyn and Cheeboe,
How are you doing today?
Thanks for asking Tina, hope you are ok.
Just had phone call saying to come in at 4 tomorrow as they want a dr to be there and that's the only appointment. Totally in bits now as cant see how it can be good news if the want a Dr there, andrying to sort out someone to pick my daughter up from school.
Im doing ok hunni thank you, I’m suffering some aches/pains etc from anti hormone tablets though.
I totally understand it’s a feeling you can’t really describe. Just so many emotions rolled into one. I thought it was standard for a Dr to be there but could depend on where you live. It is difficult trying to arrange childcare at short notice, my younger two were 15 and 12 so older than yours but I didn’t want my youngest to be on her own so had to arrange for friends to look after her. Im keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow, pls let us know how you get on.
Hugs Tina x x
I think Tina is right that it’s the doctor that has to give you the results. We all know what you are going through and it’s not easy but if it is bad news that it is cancer then it is treatable. My head went into overload when I was told my results that I had BC and the emotions that I felt was unreal but you will cope you have to for your children. I kept breaking down when my daughter was out of the room as I didn’t want her to see my tears but once you know you become stronger and start to deal with it and cope with the treatment.
I am praying for good news for you tomorrow and remember we are all here to help and get you through it as the support on here has been invaluable to me.
Love Netty xx
