Hi Ladies - all really good news for me. The cancer was as expected and hadn't spread anywhere - so no chemo and as I've had a mastectomy no need for rads either.👍
Am on Letrozole for the next 5 years and calcium tablets - as one of the SE's of Letrozole is it messes with your bones. Having a bone scan so they keep an eye on the effect the Letrozole has on me.
Surgeon even started filling my inflator today as it was 'nice and soft'. Weekly appointments to have it filled gradually - it's starting to look good already - put's my 'good' one to shame🤣 - but i've been told they will see about balancing them at some stage in the future.
Been one hell-of-a 3 months to get to this point - but I made it - with the fantastic help and support from this forum - so a great big THANKYOU to you all.💐
currently lopsided, but expecting biopsy from other breast to show cancer (get results tomorrow) so will go for a mastectomy that side too, to go along with the ANC from the original side.
Can't be bothered with implants or reconstruction, going to have moobs :-)
Results day for me tomorrow - can feel the anxiety building up.
I keep saying to myself that surely I'm due a 'break' in this cancer mullarkey - EVERY Wednesday results day for me so far has been bad news - so hoping to break the cycle tomorrow and get some good news for a change.🤞🤞🤞
Hi JaqB - thanks for the good luck message - fingers crossed.🤞
Hope your seroma is calming down a bit as well.
Sorry you're having to go through chemo.😕
Lots of Love
Almost 6 weeks since my original mastectomy and I am still shattered! Doing very little and often needing an afternoon nap. Can't believe how tired I am. And I'm sleeping fine and pain free. Expecting I will need another mastectomy along with the axillary node clearance I know I need, so more exhaustion, then the chemo and radio.....
Hi Kateday - so sorry you have to go through chemo - don't really know what else to say as I don't want to say the wrong thing while you're feeling so 'low'.
Just know we all send you love and will 'support' you as you go through these next steps.💖
