What would we have done without this thread over the past two years. I am sure that old residents will still pop in from time to time, I know I certainly will.
To all 'old' thread residents, to
those now moved on,
to those who are new here and
Life carries on, but the love and
support on this thread
will never be forgotten x
Hiya, oh it is a sense of achievement when those flipping staples come out and you can start to move forward.
I know what you mean about making the cards, I have been doing the same in making cross stitch cards, it has sort of!! kept me sane over the past 3 months.
I am back to work tomorrow, looking forward to it with a little bit of trepidation, but I am so ready to get back in there again. I am only doing 3 hours a day until mid Jan to break me in, plus I have the whole of the Xmas period off so really the next two weeks are just to get me used to things again.
How are you?
I'm OK thanks - staples coming out tomorrow and on to the next phase of physio. Had to shift BC follow up appointment because it clashed with dressing change - how priorities have changed! I've been enjoying having the time to sit and make Christmas cards instead of rushing them at the last minute.
Hi to everyone else - hope all is well and that you are keeping 'abreast' of things!
how are you doing my friend, how is your recovery coming on xxxx
There has been recent research by some American doctor (he was on Radio two a few weeks ago) that HRT has nowt to do with breast cancer. This US oncologist has written a book called “ oestrogen matters”, but he is kind of going against the mainstream tide at the moment. His wife and daughter both had BC and are both on HRt since having BC. I think there is still a lot of research to be done on this area really....and we don't have definitive answers at the moment.
Well Alibobs, my sister insists my BC was caused by taking hrt for years, however, since being diagnosed I have come into contact with a large number of fellow sufferers and so far I’m the only one I know who took hrt so I’m still not convinced. I wasn’t told it was a contributing factor but was told that as I scored 8/8 er I mustn’t take it any longer and needed to take anastrazole for a minimum of 5 years. Only managed 3 months before stopping as it made me so ill. Have to admit I’d love to go back on hrt just to get a good nights sleep but guess it’s too risky. That programme did say that hrt only made a slight increase in the risk and being overweight or drinking was worse, There are plenty of tee total slim women who have never taken hrt who get BC and plenty of over weight heavy drinkers who don’t so I refuse to be made to feel guilty for taking something that I needed. I’m sure men aren’t made to feel guilty when they are unlucky enough to be one of the statistics.
Right, enough yattering from me, time for a lemsip and bed xx
Exactly the same with me, I did not have HRT and was post menopausal when I got bc. I recall the nurse asking me if I was on HRT when I was at the breast clinic and I said no xx
