I’m doing well Liliana thanks next month I have my 1st annual mammogram ( don’t have appt date yet). Already a bit twitched if I’m honest.... but as we now all say... it will b what it is.

couple of yrs since was in states - been a few times.. touring so been to quite a few places. Only 2 places where I thought-  I could live here ( bearing in mind only spent 4/5 days in each lol) anywhose they were San Francisco and San Antionio (loved the river walk area). Mind u like all hols I was happy to b home again Happy

That's ok Sandra - ask away.

I've been having quite bad pain - different kind of pain in underside of breast, back of it and side. Dr said may be bone density but thot it best to do a PET scan as my first cancer was deep in breast and picked up on mammo rather than feeling a lump. Also been having periods last couple of months so think checks are precautionary.

Swelling, pain and fatigue haven't left me 17 months post treatment so am accepting that but this was different pain. Keeps me up at night and can't lie on that side. 

The worst of it is over so these little things are best to keep checked. Enjoy your day ladies.xx

Morning All

Well today’s the day, Op number 2 follow up appointment and histology results. To say I feel sick is an understatement. Had about three hours disturbed sleep last night and feel very apprehensive. Trying to keep an open mind and accept what is to be. Last op histology results were so unexpected, I’m expecting nothing this time, I hate that initial delivery of news, good or bad. Just don’t know whether I can cope both emotionally and physically with further radical treatment. But I guess like all things past the strength will come from somewhere.

Appoinment at the city hospital at 10-40.

i hope everyone finds something good in their day.

Thinking of u sundial- got everything crossed for u. 

I know what u mean on the news delivery.. good or bad. When I went for my post op results they were running 3 hrs late ( I was thinking it’s bad news so they are keeping me till the end cos they think I’m gonna b in a while.... no they were really just running 3 hrs behind!). When got in consultant chatted for what felt hrs about why they were running 3 hrs late nd what would resolve it... finally said oh ..erm well clear margins nd nodes!!!!! Felt like sayings u need to start leading with the results nd chat later mate. 

Not long now so I’ll b there in spirt with u.  hope they are running on time nd the consultant cuts to the chase and tells u quickly the hopefully good news ❤️

That is great news sundial. Doing a little happy dance for you in rainy Southampton, but with news like that who cares about the rain. So good to hear these types of stories Happy

good: that’s my chemo session done for today and nothing for another 3 weeks. Feeling tip top so far! 

Bad: mum in for heart surgery today to replace her valves. We’ve not always seen eye to eye but I still went to see her before chemo to take her magazines and cake. Life’s to short to hold grudges Happy

have a great day all xx

Thank you Dizzle. It surely is good news. Hope you continue to feel well after your chemo session. Hope your mum is ok too, They are precious even when you don’t see eye to eye.

Sundial that is AMAZING NEWS!!!!!! That has made my day. So so glad for you.

Dizzle you're a good person. I am the same and hold no grudges and do what my heart feels is right without letting ego or pride get in the way. How we react and behave is in our control. Life is definitely a lottery so make the most of it!

Enjoy your evening ladies. Hope you enjoyed your free day Sandra.

Thank you Jbains. And you’re is the way we behave towards others not the way they behave towards us that make us the people we are.
