I must admit when I was diagnosed in 2016 I was scared that I might not see my 60th and I am so nearly there now
Yep Gemini's together. My best friend is 3 weeks older than me and her birthday is on Tuesday, we are each others opposites, almost like twins!!

Finally got to the keyboard and can post. I've been keeping up with the thread from afar and taking comfort from your doc's response Helena, but how frustrating you have to wait again and more tests. Thoroughly fed up making. Ready and waiting for next pocket duty but definitely definitely recommend general anaesthetic for the procedure. It is very quick as Jill says, but do give yourself some time off afterwards.
Oh Lesley what is your man like ...? Talk about highs and lows; good news one day then an injury. An exciting time of birthdays for you gemini girls. Lots of cause of celebration soon I hope --- once all the silly waiting is over!
Lots of love to all of you xxx

Had my legs crossed all afternoon Helena, sounds as though doc is not concerned, which is such a relief, but I'd much rather have the GA even though it does cause you more problems - a local seems far too ineffective!!
Perhaps Meryl Streep has the right ideaxxx

Lesley, glad there was some good news with the cyst & hope mammo doesn't squeeze too much. Had my 3 year Neddie letter exactly 2 weeks after the mammo, so very tentative opening envelope, but decided as it was thin it would be ok. Hooray. But Himself needs to be taken in hand - any chance of getting the doc to do a home visit? You don't need any stressing out - I'd rather have him fed up with 'too much fuss' than worry that he needs more treatment. Tell him his options are: doc home visit or you throttling him!xxx

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.
