Apologies...can’t believe I used the journey word ..... I have lots of words about what we are all going through but I don’t think I can post them !!! What do you call it ?
thinking of you today and everybody else
It must be very difficult regarding your children....I don’t have that added stress.
I think you are right about “ getting organised”... it is clawing a bit of control back and it does help plus I don’t want to leave it to the last minute as I’d end up like a headless chicken !!!
I have a date for surgery which in a weird way I’ll be happy to have ....just get it out of the way but my plan may turn out to be different so I’m not holding my breath. I realise that this journey we are on is complex and very individual.
I will prob start to feel anxious and panicky before appointment to get results/information.... it’s only natural.
You will have more information tomorrow about your chemo which is a step forward although it’s still scary but I expect we will feel more at ease when we have information to work with instead of being up in the air.
Your appointment change could probably be part of the system ... availability of appropriate doc.
I hope the toad in the hole went ok.
sending positive vibes for tomorrow
Hi Cass, I too was diagnosed last week with stage 3 bc, waiting for a CT scan to see if it has spread. Waiting is horrible. Itry to keep as busy as possible. Dog has walks , the ironing is done soon as, drawers have been emptied. Soooo up to date with everything. Trying not to read too far ahead on this site, gave myself a wobbly yesterday , so trying to keep it to what I know now. Should have CT within 14 days. Keep busy, talk to people and use the Forum. I too feel that every twinge is a sign of cancer, my son said 'no Mum, thats because you're 60' Bless him, had to laugh. Take Care Cazzy
How are you today ?
I don’t think everyone has an MRI... docs just want to check extent .... nothing else on my mammogram or USS but I thought I had a dimple but not evident on exam. It’s very individual.
My op is booked for 19th but wle may change depending on mri result. I’ll be contacting nurse Thursday to see if I can glean some information. Preop next week.
Mornings seem to be the worst time for me... the one thing I really don’t have the motivation for is cooking....just want something easy... my husband would probably say that nothings changed !!!
Been out and had bra fitting @ m&s ... got a post op bra and sports bra so that’s something. I’ve sent away for a couple of soft front fastening bras from Asda so will see what they’re like. Xhugx
I had my MRI today. I’m not due appointment til next week, preop, although I’m going to catch up with my Mac nurse on Thursday. Sounds as though you are going to have a good day... positive vibes. It’s good to sleep well and makes such a difference.
Will think of you on Thursday.
Yes, today is going to be a good day. I'm going to gave a good fettle today, so the house should look better by the end of it!
Love the sound of your day, it is amazing the difference having a good nights sleep can make to your overall wellbeing.
Have a lovely day despite the weather xxx
Ladies I so feel for you all at the minute, I will never forget that awful time in the early days when the fear was so over whelming and you just want it all to stop, it's was the lowest I felt throughout .
Things just begin to change as you tick off each stage and without even realising it the days and weeks are passing and you are dealing with it, as you say there is nothing you can do other than go with it and Personally I found none of it was as I'd imaged at all!
3 years ago I couldnt see past the end of the week let alone to all this being over and life ever being normal again but it is , life is great ! We go to work , we chat about our day over tea , go to bed and repeat!
You appreciate the simple things , our motto is boring is good!
Can relate to how you’re feeling Michelle21.
Can feel myself dipping again tonight ... thoughts of MRI / results / all my twinges seem to be too enhanced to be nothing etc etc ... start to get scared. Even Top Gear isn’t distracting me
Waiting for a few good vibes to come back but I don’t find it easy to feel optimistic or hopeful... tendency to be on the dark side when the old brain cell goes into overdrive. I’ll work on it though.
sending hugs to all
Just wanted to send you all hugs and honestly it does get better in time
