That's great news doo-doo, I came home from work to a letter saying all clear and recall in 3 years. I have never felt so relieved. I have also never cried so much and I am not an emotional person.
I am glad to hear that you had your biopsies today. It will be an anxious time for you until next Wednesday, but I sincerely hope that your results are good.
Are you taking someone with you to your appointment? It is always a good idea to do this if you can. Also, you may find it helpful to write a list of any questions that you may have.
Please let us know how you get on. We are always here for you.
Thank you Jolamine,
yes I have a friend coming with me, she is a wonderful chatterbox, which is great :).
ive prepared my questions so that I won't forget anything if I'm in a haze, and having been honest with my work place, they are giving me the time off for appts freely.
It is a concerning time, for sure, but I know that if a rocky path is ahead, then comfort can be found here, and with my closest of friends.
thank you for taking the time to reply, and for all others on this thread with good news, so delighted for you....remember to keep life clean, happy, full and keep checking, not just your boobies, but keep up the appts for smear tests, encourage others to do the same.
heres to to a week of work and delcuttering to keep me busy!
Keeping yourself busy doesn't have to be all work. Make time for some pleasurable pursuits too. I am glad to hear that you have a friend going with you and that your work is being so considerate. If there is a rocky road ahead of you, you will cope, simply because we all have to, but here's hoping for better news.
You truly are an inspirational women. I have been reading through lots of posts on here and your name is always there reassuring everyone even though you are going through it yourself.
I think you should bottle your positivity and kindness.
Love Lisa xx
Thank you so much for your lovely post.
I know just how upsetting it is, especially for those who are newly diagnosed or going through the barrage of tests. I had great help from people on this forum when I was going through it all and, this is my way of repaying my debt.
Hi all, thought I'd post to keep the thread going...
3 more sleeps, and then I know what I'm dealing with.
I found a kind of peace at the weekend...I've come to realise that I push myself far too much, try to squeeze too much in...some of this is owing to being a single parent, and I want to be sure that my boys have the very best opportunities that I can give them, and that takes a little bit extra out of me from time to time, and so I've reflected, and changed things a little...
caffeine - I would easily drink 7 cups of coffee per day, I've reduce this to 3, and filled the rest with beautiful (caffeine free) herbals
bedtime - I've been more strict, to avoid crashing out of the sofa exhausted to only wake at 2am...I still wake at 2am, but I only have to read a page of a book and then turn over
fitness - I had to take a little break after the biopsies - the brushing was so bad, and the recommendation was to not run owing to the possibility of internal bleeding- this has been the hardest - running / exercise is my stress buster...but it will come back
for anyone who's reading this and waiting for results, be at peace - today, tomorrow, take comfort from friends - please share your worries, it will help, there are wonderful, courageous individuals on here...they / I will always listen.
3 more sleeps...
I'm so glad to hear that you've done a little self-appraisal and decided to make a few changes. It's never easy being a single parent. What ages are the boys? However, one thing missing from your changes is to be a little kinder to yourself and, don't push yourself too much. It is only natural that you want the best for your boys, but you need to look after yourself too.
It won't be long before you can get back to running again. I'm sure that you are missing it at the moment. Only 3 more sleeps? You're almost there. I hope that it all works out well for you.
