Hey ladies - hope you've enjoyed your day as best as you can. Keep going and soldier on - you got this.

This whole episode is hard and very hard at times but you'll all get through. Just remember to take care of yourself mentally as well. Do things to make you happy and relaxed.

I read alot and tried to find out all the facts with it in the back of my mind that I'm not a medic and whatever I read may not pertain to me. I am a bit of a control freak so by doing that I felt a little in control.

One day at a time. Take care and enjoy the rest of your evening. Good luck to all those waiting for results.

Hi lilyfern and a warm welcome to the thread.

No u are not being a wimp... it is not long since your op. Lemondrizzle is right... give your breast care nurse a ring and explain your concerns. Don’t want u worrying over the weekend when they are not there to provide u with their support. It’s why they are there... to help. Even just to put your mind at rest is worth a call Happy

sending hugs me dear u can do this...and remember you are not alone.... we are here if u need us ❤️

The American result is well worth the wait as it tells you everything. Helps you decide what to do as well as the doctors! But the weight is still horrible! x

Thank you Jbains, yes, its a big relief, Now to my RT . and I'm already putting a lotion my dr told me to buy , expensive, but if it works... it's worth it. I start Monday! 3 1/2 weeks. 


Its great that you got to spend time together with family. that is always uplifting! enjoy. And speaking about heat, here in Los Angeles the heat has been unbearable. And the fires are terrible. one of them has burned 9600 acres already, it grew 3000 acres overnight!! so scary. 

Not too close to me but still has destroyed about a dozen or more buildings. :(.

Hi Lemondrizzle,such good news your Lymp nodes are clear!! great news. Can I ask a question if you dont mind? I have seen in a few posts that they are sending the cancer and lymp nodes to United States? to have them check? Why is that? I hope you dont mind me asking.

Hey liliana we were in L.A. for hols and it sure was hot! Yes the fires are horrid. We did the touristy bits then drove on highway 101 to Fresno then San Francisco whilst stopping at Hollywood, Beverly hills, Santa Monica, Santa Cruz and Carmel. My daughter had a whale of a time in sephora and $800 later a big smile for days. She wants to be a makeup artist so had to get her tools (brushes, etc.)

Here's hoping you ladies don't react to the RT. Keep creaming! Us ladies on here are a unique group - we ttly get it and as well as loved ones are wonderful they just don't get it. 

Work commute is still hard. Still struggling but I've just learned to accept the pain and fatigue. Will be honest and admit am a tiny bit nervous and scared about PET scan. Am sure it'll be ok. It is what it is.

Now to work and recover financially from this holiday!

It's called Oncotype DX. I've had to look it up to see what it was. breast explain it well. What I don't understand is why do we not have the facilities here in the UK.

jbains,you where close to me. Hahaha,I know, I can go to Sephora and spend a little fortune too!!I'm wishing you good luck on your pet scan. You'll be fine but I understand the nervousness and how worried we get. I'm sure getting back to work will be a big help right now in more than one way.
