Hi every one
I'm lou and in a few days I'm going to have a mastectomy
Just wanted to introduce
Thanks for always supporting
Well bugger and bum you find yourself here
And hooray that you do
There is always going to be a someone here that will get it and hold your hand
why do I know this?
Because 18 months ago they did for me
Now .... big deep breaths and big girls pants - Bridget Jones style - and in no time you’ll be where I am
I’m in Spain yeah a holiday
Holiday who thought back then I’d be having one of those
Life is like a boxing match, defeat is declared not when you fall ..... But when you refuse to stand up again ....... So, I get knocked down but I get up again. x
welcome from me too. This site is a great help to us all.
And Leolady56 - i just love your turns of phrase. Never fails to make me smile. Do look after yourself as well xx
As leolady said, its bugger. Lots of us have finished treatment but stay because of the friends (commonly known as fruit loops ) we've made. I had my MX almost 5 yrs ago and what an adventure I've had. Currently planning a return trip to new Zealand and Australia in January/February
I love macmillan and my friends here
Happy that things are well with you
Yesss it is thank you so much good to be here
Good for you being on holiday I hope that I can have the chance to go to san diego maybe in sep. To be in lainehardy's concert
Thanks for your support and kind words which means alot to me
Hello lousia2000 welcome to the community none of us ever thought we'd be a member of, but the best community i know of.
I had a mastectomy 7 weeks ago tomorrow, i cut the grass yesterday :O) i never thought i'd enjoy cutting the grass so much.
Good Luck with the mastectomy and anything you want to know don't hesitate to ask.
One thing i would say is take in some cartons of juice or a bottle of squash, after surgery the water tastes manky lol and maybe a packet of biscuits in case you get peckish.
It's gonna make us who we are, it's written in the scars "The Script"
