I don’t know much about benefits, never having had any. I could look into it. I really don’t like my job. My boss is an uncaring git. I just struggle with the fatigue and aches and pains. I don’t think there is anyway I could get another job with my health history (including other things that have been going on 5 years) and my age. I couldn’t do anything physical like shop work now as I’m just not up to it and with chemo brain etc I doubt I could do another office job. Wish they hadn’t moved my pension age!
with my BRCA test it came back normal, but they said I probably do have a dodgy gene somewhere, with my family history, but they don’t have enough info yet to test. If your test does come back as dodgy gene at least you will be able to deal with it. Knowledge is power.
Hi MIshy and Angela
I'm sort of enjoying the weather, but I am struggling a bit with the heat, especially when working. Also my garden is brown and straw like as we’ve not seen rain for about 6 weeks.
Ive just got my info pack through from East Grinstead for DIEP reconstruction and waiting for first appointment with surgeon. The whole thing terrifies me but I don’t want to be a uniboober forever so I’ve got to look at the options, not that there seems to be many.
I am getting tired of the Letrozole aches and pains and weight is creeping on although my surgeon says I don’t have much belly fat for making a matching boob. From my angle there looks plenty, 🤔
I am also coming to the realisation that maybe I should give up work. I’m 60 in January and struggling with working 20 hours a week and everything else. Trouble is that I won’t get state pension until I’m 66 and not sure we can live on just my husband’s pay. You are right Angela, cancer does cost a fortune one way and another.
Good luck with the liver biopsy Angela.
Good luck with the genetics test Mishy. My test came back as normal BRCA.
Im pleased they have an optimistic treatment plan for you. Fingers crossed everything goes well.
Hope you enjoyed lunch out. xx
Oh Angela so sorry to hear this. But you are right, there are some very good drugs to help now. Also surgery. My sister had 15 tumours removed from her liver stage IV. She is currently no evidence of cancer over 2 years on.
You've got a great attitude and that helps a lot. Stay positive hun xxx. Love and hugs,
