Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Alibobs - it was uncomfortable but it did not hurt. The lady doing the scans was really careful and increased the pressure ever so slightly. She also did my non BC breast first, so I got used to the feel of the machine again. Rest assured I would have told her if it was unbearable! - but it got nowhere near that point.

 

So now the mammogram is done, I can divulge one more thing - I have a date today. First one since I was divorced 6 years ago. Met a chap on holiday in Spain and we have stayed in touch. More nervous about the date than I was about the damn mammogram!!!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Morning ladies of Club Tropicana,πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸŒ΄ my first mammogram is due just before Christmas - found out I had cancer on 22/12 so that made Christmas tough last year. Have asked them to delay until the first week in Jan - Nurse looked shocked that I’d asked but as you say until people walk in our shoes.....Hope all goes well for those waiting for results 🀞🏻Off to sunny Cornwall tomorrow and hoping left bap behaves itself as lots of body boarding planned 🌊

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mishy mine took over 4 weeks last year, surgeon was off sick then on holiday and no one else could write them up apparently, and they couldn't possibly tell me any news about myself over the phone, heaven forbid!! And although I was reassured that this wouldn't happen again this year and I would definitely get them within 14 days they still took 19 πŸ™„ I'm sure all will be well but that's not the point, think they should have to walk a day in our shoes then things may be different Xx Jo

Evening ladies pleased to hear mammo went well my results from mine still not back ywt its nearly 4 weeks must be fine but still not the point xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

May I ask if the mammo was painful? I'm not due one until November but it makes me cringe just thinking about it after all we have been through. I wish you the very best result. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mammograms done. Now we wait. They have scheduled an appointment for me with my surgeon as he gets the results (rather than them sending me a letter). Next Tuesday at 6.15pm is when I will see him, so just got to wait until then.

 

Surprisingly emotional. I guess it brings it all back, especially as these are my first mammograms since diagnosis.

 

Huge thanks to all you lovely ladies for your support - it means a great deal.

That’s so kind of you all. Appointment is at 2.30pm so trying to fill the time between now and then with my work - but failing miserably at the moment! I will update later.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I was diagnosed in October 2016 and have used the services Penny Brohn offer throughout my treatment and beyond. I’m lucky enough to only be 20 min drive from their national centre. So through my chemo and rads I went to the weekly yoga class and I’ve done both the Living Well course and the Approach. They certainly helped me overcome a huge psychological barrier I had with coming to terms with my diagnosis. I hope you enjoy you’re time there.

Sorry - that should have been Penny Brohn. My iPad spell checker could not cope with that!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

A quick weekend hello to the lovely ladies who were going through this journey at the same time as me (and indeed everyone else). My first annual mammograms are scheduled for the week after next - wow, one year on already. How the heck did that happen?

 

I am currently on a 6 week break from Anastrozole - alas had some significant side effects which did not improve, so back at the oncologist on Monday to get me sorted out. Everyone reacts differently so I am hoping a new tablet will help. Otherwise I find it is the psychological barriers which are hardest to address. I am heading to the Penny Brown centre in Bristol in early July - their work sounds really holistic and supportive, so hoping that will help.

Honestly you are still early days after active treatment it does get better, one day you will suddenly realised that you have done more than you had been and it is the realisation that you have turned the corner.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Sillyb, I started on Tamoxifen at Easter. I take it before I go to bed and have no ill effects on it.  I was dreading starting it and have been pleasantly surprised 

 

Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Take your time Jencat. I found one of the hardest times to be when the active treatment ended or at least slowed down. You suddenly feel very on your own (although of course you aren’t because the medical team are always there if you need them). I also had a lot of fatigue, which was my body telling me to slow down. I worked through all my treatment, so I guess it was always going to hit me at some point.

 

But how time flies. I have just received my appointment letter for my first annual mammogram. Wow, one year on already.

 

Sending you big hugs.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello Rosie Smiley Happy So sorry I've been meaning to answer your pm. How are you, hope you're ok?

I finished 61/2 weeks of rads on Tuesday! In a funny sort of way I was quite sad to finish as it gave me a bit of security! My head is telling me I can do more than I really can, still haven't got much stamina yet, but it's early days and I think I'm trying to run before I can walk! xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I finished my treatment on Wednesday.  Started taking the oestrogen inhibitor and Vitamin D/calcium yesterday, only 4 years 363 days to go.  Can anyone tell me if they have had any side effects.
