I hope everything goes well with your op Sarah. xx
Blimey Sarah…havent been near the forums for a long while and have just read through your rollercoaster of the last few weeks…wiahing you a painfree op and speedy journey to recovery x
Thoughts and prayers are with you.
I think the physical recovery is the easy bit, the emotional recovery takes longer. Going from cruising along with life, to being told you have cancer to then after the operation, getting your head round I HAD cancer, living with the knowledge that you had it. The cancer nurses and support they offer are truly amazing. There is such an amazing support network of ladies who have been, are going through exactly what you are now, and they will become such a comfort. No matter how silly you feel a question is, it will have been asked before. We are the fortunate generation, we have the Drs with the skills to help us beat it.
Good luck for next week, Suzzie xx
Hope all goes well, Sarah. We will be thinking of you.
Wishing you lots and lots of luck, Sarah. We will all be rooting for you. Pauline x
Hope all has gone well x
Hi Sarah, I have just read your message regarding a mammogram you have had and wanted to say I totally understand what you are going through. The waiting game is the most darkest time imaginable, I know as I have been there. I am not going to say don’t worry because that just isn’t possible, but I do know that it could be a cyst or something less frightening. Please let me know how you get on, keep busy! Big hug Jackie x
Hey Sarah, hope all went ok today and you are recovering well, taking things gently. Very best wishes x
Thank you so much for all the kind messages xx
Monday came and went and I have been pleasantly surprised by the lack of pain afterwards.
I was discharged this evening, and am recuperating tonight with my parents, who have been wonderful.
I have to wait another 10 days or so before I know whether the margins and lymph nodes were clear, but the surgeon is confident that it went well.
And I have to say, the NHS is wonderful.
Glad to hear all went well. Look after yourself. x
So glad to here that it went well for you Sarah. Take is easy. x
I haven’t really been on the forums for a while and was shocked to come across your thread. You truly are on a tough journey. I have only had lump scares and have always found the NHS care brilliant. I am so glad you are finding the same. Sending lots of love for a speedy recovery,
So glad to hear the op went well and you are in no pain. Take care. Suzzie xx
So pleased to hear everything went well for you Sarah.
Really pleased to hear this. I’m so glad that it went well, that you have no pain and that you’re being well looked after. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the best possible outcome. x
So pleased all went well Sarah
Sending a hug x x x x
Well, after enjoying the eight days post op in a limbo type bubble of possitivity I had a phone call this morning giving a date for results - for Friday!
Two days time!!!
I’ve been healing so well - dressings free, full movement, pain free.
But this is the meeting that determines future treatment and officially stages both the cancer and (hopefully none) lymph node involvement, or a further operation to get clear margins.
So many different outcomes.
But on the plus side, two days is not very long to wait.
Hi Sarah, I had the exact same thing happen to me a few years back. I too was sick with worry as their is a history in my family, so I’m sure you can see how worried I was. When I went back the nurse explained what was going to happen. They did another mammogram and she said the specialist would analise it there and then and may need to do a biopsy. Anyway after it been analised it was decided they would do an ultra sound scan just to be on the safe side. It turned out they weren’t worried and no need for a biopsy. Apparently I have hundreds of cysts and one just looked a bit weird on the mammogram. I’m sure that’s all they are going to do with you, just go in with a positive head and you’ll come out wondering why was I worrying.
Thank you, Pauline xx
Unfortunately I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, very early and a small area, at the beginning of February.
So this is the pathology report following surgery xx
