I’m at my wits end. I am due to get my results tomorrow following my mastectomy 2 week ago.
I cant cope with any more needles or hospitals. I’m very anxious and needle phobic anyway.
I’m not sure what il do if they say chemotherapy I think I will pass out.
I cant sleep. I’m not sure I’m using this site right either I’m so muddled.
I’m so sorry your in such a state and can’t sleep. I can only imagine what your going through , I’m due to get my results tomorrow too but only from original biopsy I have been waiting two weeks and can empathise a little on the wait for results .
sounds like you have handled it all amazingly well so far , you are so much stronger than you think and you can do whatever it throws at you next .
keeping everything crossed you don’t need chemo .
lots of love
Hi Lady Tinkerbell,
I hear ya as I am the same have a needle phobia and I have never had so many injections, blood tests, IV lines and I was petrified that I could end up having Chemo. I thought pregnancy was bad but this tops that. The only way I coped was deal with one treatment or test at a time and I didn’t as I had lots of meltdowns over the needles especially with my MRI and then putting the contrast in via needle. In the end my friend suggested getting someone to show me a video on their phone of my daughter or cats whilst looking away from what they were doing and that helped me get through the needle bit. My surgeon bless him said to me last week you should be use to the needles after everything you have been through and I said nope I will never get use to them.
I Hope knowing that you are not alone on the needle phobia can help get you through this.
Love Netty xx
