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.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hi Jak how are you doing after your op? I know Helena is doing fantastic and im sure you are well on the way to recovery as i said im on waiting list although feeling a bit frustrated aa i have found out his list has grown somewhat to an average of approximately 8 months could be as late as June now 😨 i tried explaining that its so long for me to wait etc etc and was told if my problem gets worse as in arms becoming very weak i will go in straight away orher than that i just have to wait im opting for a if there is a cancellation nudging up list if one happens and go in within a 48 hr situation but would rather not lets hope his kuat suddenly becomes shorter again
So for now im just focused on having a lovely Christmas with the family not long now ladies
Sending you all my very best wishes this Christmas and for good health to us all in 2019 xx

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.

Hi Helena,

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!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Thanks Jak yep in waiting list for op a couple of months he says wants to me have a year clear of rada as apparently they can hinder healing so wants to leave it as long as he can not allowed to have a holiday ir anything in meantime i have to stay close just incase i need to go in due to a sudden worsening of symptoms so no boozy Christmas for me or pulling shapes on danceffloor!!! Now i know what the op entails im feeling more relaxed i was so stressed last week!!!
I already take vitamin d and i take cod liver oil so pleased i had test at least i can do something about it a freind fiund out the other day she is stage 4 osteoporosis in her spine and hip she is worried about falling as she is high risk for fracture and she never took Hrt when going through her change because of the info about bc, i suppose what im trying to say is you have to weigh up the risks associated with bc or protect your bones i really don't think its something you can decide without the right info gps seem to shy away fron it and as a few ladies on here have stated they wre diagnosed and never took it
On a much lighter note im finally getting into tge Christmas spirit putting the decs up!!!!

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

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.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Lesley 21 I totally agree with you about not blaming ourselves for contracting BC. I have friends too who totally go against the grain and gave never had any trouble and other friends who are exercise junkies, vegan and tee total yet still sadly have had or have BC. It's a lottery no one wants to win!! Do hope you feel better for the Lemsip.💖💖

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

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
