Have just added another "hug" to your initial post, and read through the rest of the thread.
You, my darlin, are one brave lady, and an inspiration to anyone, with what you've previously been through, and come out the other side of.
I'm not surprised your feeling rather vulnerable again, even though papillomas, it must still stir up a load of concerns and worries from the past.
Hoping all goes well with your op, and you bounce up again quickly. Please let us know how it goes, will you.
Sending another hug and love to you
Hello again Chalee,
Yes - I would be anxious too and bleeding fed up. I hope your treatment is all over and done with soon. Over twenty years of various breast issues - what can you say, in polite forum company but "flip".
I see you also went through near enough the whole array of treatments for the cancer. I thought 3 weeks radio was enough to deal with on top of everything else, never mind 6 😱 Facing treatment/surgery again, for whatever issue, must take a lot of self control and strength.
Take care Chalee,

Hi chalee- I just read your messages and Chick’s reply and wanted to send you a hug and best wishes for your op. I’m not surprised you are feeling vulnerable, I’m sure it’s triggered memories of 16 years ago. I have to say I think Chick has written a great reassuring message - and she’s put into words how I felt too about reading that you had BC 16 years ago, I wasn’t sure how to say it. Thank you for your reassurance that there can be a positive outcome after treatment, that was kind of you to post that.
But this post is about you and if we can help you get through your op then please let us help. Chat away and remember we will all be with you as you have your op.
🤗🤗 Evie xx
Thanks, Chick😊. You are right, of course, and I'm glad only to be facing a day in hospital and a wee bit of discomfort😊. I am just a bit anxious😳
Otherwise I've been pretty healthy. In 2003 I had 5cm tumour with 12 positive nodes, surgery, 12 rounds of chemo, 6 weeks of radiotherapy and then eight years of tamoxifen/anastrozole. I'd be pleased if you could take some reassurance from that that there can be a pretty positive outcome at the end of treatment. 😊😊
Very best wishes x
Yes, at what point can we just accept that this is normality!! Now I am not the most knowledgeable, but I understand papillomas to be benign growths. If so, I hope that is something to be relieved about. Not that that should diminish other feelings about the prospect of surgery, the aftermath and all the emotions it all must raise again.
Anyway, I just wanted to wish you well with your treatment. I hope I do not offend you if I say that hearing of circumstances like yours, i.e. Having cancer 16 years ago, can have a positive effect on my own feelings about the future.

Hey ho. Here I am again. Just need some reassurance.
After 23 years of multiple and various breast lumps, including cancer 16 years ago, I've been re-called to have some papillomas removed. Obviously will be glad to be rid of them but I'm feeling vulnerable and fed up.
The anxiety never ends, does it😑
