Re: Just diagnosed and wanting to talk to people who understand

I have only been offered Tuesday Thursday and Friday afternoon appointments. Mainly a Thursday. I still don't know the difference between the HER positive and negative? Both my consultant and oncologist are both foreign and they are lovely but sometimes when you have that information to take in it can be difficult. My mother in law comes with me and takes notes but sometimes she can't understand either. And I've learnt not to google anything. Hope it all went well with your boss Jill xxxx

There is much info to gather for them to make an individual treatment plan isn't there.No point in torturing yourself Ange trying to second guess what they will say.

Hi Sarahd, my consultant does a clinic in the morning with all the tests then he does results in the afternoon and it's only on Wednesdays. Good in a way to start with as Wednesday is my day off xx

Re: Just diagnosed and wanting to talk to people who understand

How did it go with your boss Jill? Sounds like the place I used to work. Why do they only do afternoon appointments? I'm trying to get an appointment with the consultant as they wanted to see me after ct results. They said she is clinic this morning and they will get back to me and I felt like saying why don't you ever offer me a morning appointment! They haven't got back to me! Hopefully it will just be the tablets ange Smiley Happy keep busy in the morning xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Re: Just diagnosed and wanting to talk to people who understand

I guess I may be worried if I don't get one of radio/chemo as being a worrier I will worry about it coming back. Maybe I have read too much about grade 3, Her2+ positive cancer Smiley Sad . Let's just see..,.. All speculation by me, I may end up like spongebob and just have tamoxifen Smiley Happy xx
