  • Hi, No of course you are not worrying unnecessarily, anybody in your situation would feel the same. We both know that your GP is most likely right, but your worry is understandable. Can you possibly see a different GP (with a better manner) or do you have contact details for the Breast Care Nurse you were allocated when…
  • Hi all, After seeing all of your pics of your stunning decorations I will be embarrassed to post my pics. Luckily I am a bit of a technophobe so will need to wait for my husband to get home to download and post them for me. He has gone back to work today after having time off to take me to my radiotherapy, (he is classed…
  • Oh wow they are beautiful. Thank you so much for thinking of us and sending your good wishes. I am touched. Enjoy your meal, Jayne xx
  • @Marina60, Sunshinedaff Hi this situation worries me. I am currently almost done with radiotherapy (3 more sessions) and will have a follow up with my Consultant in a few weeks. However, after that I will be on yearly mammograms too. As my cancer was an early one detected by routine mammogram I was told that I would never…
  • I agree that the Amalfi coast is stunning. I went there 3 years ago on a day trip from where we had hired a villa with family. I must admit though that the coach journey to get there was awful. It was literally packed with people standing in the aisle and boiling hot with no air con !! Add on the windy roads and I couldn't…
  • Hi Brightstar, Your are so kind to think of us when you have so much stress yourself at this time. Just wanted to tell you though that I was in Asda the other day and they have all sorts of different tree decorations including a champagne bottle, a martini glass and I think a baking mixer !! Mind you they also had octopus,…
  • Hi Brightstar, I am so sorry to hear your news, it must have been a big shock. Try not to think too far ahead, perhaps take it in stages, ie - focus now on your meeting with the breast care nurse first and what information you want to get from that. I hope you don't think I am being rude or insensitive, I am just trying to…
  • Hi Brightstar, The picture of your tree is amazing. Don't feel bad about having a cry when you had your dressing changed - our emotions are running at full speed right now and it is hard to keep them in !! Good luck with your Consultant appointment on Thursday and please let me know how you get on, ❤️
  • Hi Brightstar, Thank you. After today's session I will be third of the way through, plus I get the weekend off !! I had a lovely time with my daughters and hopefully the weeks will fly past until Christmas when my youngest will be home again. I hope you are doing ok, when do you see your Consultant next ? Take Care x
  • Hi Brightstar It was fine, really was. The hardest part is the hospital is 20 odd miles away and situated in a busy residential area so traffic was very heavy. Apart from that, all good. 1 down & 14 to go. I agree general anaesthetic makes you feel a bit down. I know the first week I was a bit weepy & tired but that is…
  • HI RobertA, Babies ha ha 😂 I wish. I am feeling better today, and I have managed to get a few chores done this weekend. My eldest daughter came for Sunday roast today and my youngest daughter who lives in Liverpool (she stayed after Uni) is coming home Wednesday so we can celebrate her 25th Birthday. We live in Cardiff so…
  • Hi Brightstar, So glad your op is over and done with. I agree that having the wire put in was the worst bit. I felt really dizzy and weird for a bit after the procedure. I should have thought to tell you this earlier, but post surgery you need a really soft comfy bra. I saw a few in Peacocks which were almost like T shirt…
  • Thank you Sunshinedaff, It is very kind of you to reply and such nice words too. Have a good weekend all ❤️
  • Hi, SusanW60 & RobertA Thank you both for your lovely replies. I appreciate them very much. I do feel a bit better today. I had a long hot shower (don't like soaking in the bath) and then managed to get some chores done. It has been the most gorgeous day here today, quite warm and I think that helped too. I think, as you…
  • Hi Brightstar, Sorry for delay in replying but no I did not take HRT. Please don't beat yourself up over taking it, as my breast care nurse said to me 'cancer is caused by a number of factors all coming together - one of which is just pure old bad luck' so please try not to worry about that now. The main thing is to look…
  • Hi Brightstar, Thank you for your reply. Like you I also have a family history of lots of cancer, but never Breast Cancer ?? I hope your meeting with your Consultant today went well. As for the Radiation, I think it is more of an insurance type of thing. I was told the 'icing on the cake' of my treatment. I am actually…
  • Hello Brightstar, I am new to this site too. I read your post and it seems to be exactly the same as my situation. I went for a routine mammogram (I'm 57), thought nothing off it and toddled off on my holiday. A few days after I got home the letter turned up asking me to go for further tests. I did that and after tests etc…
