Oh tell me about it, I actually said the same to Colin a few weeks ago, they really do not realise how much they affect us when they have something happen.

What a b*gger Lady H, hopefully you won’t have to wait longand also it won’t clash with lobbing balls dates. Good that they’re pretty confident it’s thickening due to tami but best to be reassured.
Yes, of course Himself needs checking, and of course you’re right about men being so flipping stubborn. I’m sure if they realised how much extra stress they were causing us they'd give in before things got really bad. Hey ho, it is what it is, that’s his favourite saying at the moment. Think I might throttle him soon, his groaning is driving me demented xx

Oh right that is good. The problem with me is my bp drops after a GA so they will have to monitor me for a while, which is what they had to do with my bc op. It was compounded by my also being on bp tablets. Hopefully I will be down early in the morning as I have to be there for 7.30am and be on the way home by lunchtime xxx

The sister said I will be called in for 7.30am as a day patient, she did say to bring an overnight bag in case I had to stay in for any reason, but they say that to be on the safe side.
They just said I will need to take a day or two off afterwards to recover from the GA but should be ok after that.

Apparently it is a very short procedure. He checked my notes again and he wants to make sure because it does not just say a thickening but that the lining is very thickened otherwise he would say leave it for 3/4 months and then have the scan done again. He was very sure that it was tamo and that I didnt need to worry but that I would probably have to come off tamo, which my onc would discuss with me.
The nurse on the way out said reassured me that he was very relaxed about it and her words "we know when he is concerned about something and he definitely was not".

Oh flippin 'eck Helena your saga continues! ....but they still want to go ahead even though he does think its the tamoxifen?
Itll be really really short and quick I'm sure, just enough time to ferret around and grab the little piece.
When will that be ?

OMG I think you need to ban him from the garden. He really should get it checked out, I know there is nothing that they can really do if it is a broken rib, but it is best to get it checked, but know what you mean about men and calling the GP!!

Sorry with late good luck wishes Helena but it’s been a traumatic morning. Not sure what time your appointment is, but hope it goes/gone well xx
Himself décided to get the hedge trimmer out first thing, next thing I know he was lying on the drive groaning clutching his chest. Rushed out in dressing gown thinking the worst. Thankfully not his heart this time but (we think) broken rib. He just heard a loud crack and was in agony. Managed to help him inside. He’s in a lot of pain, no way can I get him to hospital and of course he won’t let me call doctor. Assuming it is broken rib I’m following advice on nhs website using my chillows. He’s ok if he doesent move an inch or breathe, cough or heaven forbid as he found out sneeze! Xx
