Hiya, I just wanted to share that I am officially one year NED today. A year since *the* surgery. I am waiting for my annual mammogram results now. Pessimism is always an option as you well know so trying to just not think about it! xx
Shi, how about a bit of Time Warp? ...as long as time doesnt warp us back to chemo? xxx
You got it in one but I am being really good. The nurse was very pleased with the way the scar is healing and reckons after Monday I should be well healed so fingers crossed and I will not have to go again after that xx
Ladybowler, thats brilliant news. You can relax and look forward to a relaxing Christmas break now. Hope you are healing well. Slower than you'd like, I expect.... xxx
Thank you darling, it is just the not doing hardly anything that is getting to me, not used to doing nothing and I am getting a numb bum!! Yep I know bringing the tone down again
Once the area of the scar that is taking time to heal is sorted I am sure I will be a lot better, it is pain going every two days to get it dressed but they were pleased on Monday the way that it was going so fingers crossed it is looking good this evening when I have to go again.
Wanted to share my good news with you, the results came back as a benign cyst, so onwards and upwards to recovery frommy hysterectomy.
Thank you for your wonderful support
Oh that is wonderful news and I wish you both all the very best for the future. I remember when I moved in with my partner Colin, that was 18 years ago and we are still together
I am taking each day as it comes, I honestly did not realise despite people telling me, just how invasive it is and the extent of the scar, I had a bikini line op, but also I can not believe how well I am doing only two weeks after the op, but I am not going to push myself too far, there is always next week to start doing a bit more.
Oh yes, I know my priorities changed dramatically post bc diagnosis, the things that used to matter and stress me out just seem so insignificant now.
Ah so glad to hear things are progressing positively. I think we sometimes underestimate the extent of the surgery and treatment we are having - I certainly did - so it sounds like you are doing really well.
I am making the most of life, living in the moment and just remembering how different things were one year ago. Cancer certainly changes your attitude to life doesn’t it? I have very exciting times ahead - my partner of 5 months and I have decided to move in together - so life is definitely on the up. God willing it continues.
Much love to all the ladies on this message stream.
Not too bad at all darling. I am now 2 weeks post op, had my staples out just over a week ago, got a slight problem with a tiny bit of the scar not healing but the nurses are sorting that out and are pleased with the way it is going, just trust me to have that, mind you I have that problem when I cut myself sometimes it takes a while to heal.
Cant believe how well I feel considering the surgery that I had. Walking around well, eating well!! am now a third of the way through to my first milestone
How are you doing? xx
