Tomorrow is a day I hate.

Tomorrow I have to have something I hate more than COPD or anything else I have to do. It only hurts when it's being done which doesn't really take long, it isn't really the doing it is the waiting afterwards, which can be two weeks. What is it? I have to have a mammogram, I had breast cancer fifteen years ago and I am terrified it will come back because I don't think I could cope as well as I did then. Oh well, keep smiling.

  • You're not short of courage carol and you've come to the right place for support.

    Whatever personal gripes some of us may have my guess is we all put them aside and stand together when one of us is in serious need.

    Two weeks of waiting and not knowing when it is of such serious nature is not something I could deal with and stay level headed. We'll be here should you need to rant and look forward to you coming to tell us you're all clear.

    Best of luck and all good wishes,

    Chris

  • Hi Carole, hope you don't mind me replying, I'm new here and have not 'spoken' to you before ......

    I have had a lung cancer scare about 6 months ago, and I know how hard I found the couple of weeks waiting for the Xray results.... thankfully negative!

    Try to be positive, the Xray can only help you, it either reassures you that all is well ..... and why shouldn't it be ..... I imagine you check for lumps, so you would already have some idea, and of course X rays also give us the all important early warning that we need if we are ill and can be got better

    I know that's all easier said than done.

    You will be fine, have faith and be confident.

    I will be thinking of you

  • Heck, Good luck Carole.

    Who'd be a woman eh! Having your boobs squashed between to plates. I had a scare also,

    but thankfully ok. I have to keep going for yearly checks. Sometimes I wish I was a 32AAA and

    then they would not find anything to squash.

    Pointless me saying try not to worry . . . BUT try not too. We will all be thinking of you.

    xx Ros xx

  • you would NOT like to be 32AA (not going to admit to AAA) because by god they do find something to squash take it from me :(

  • lol ok 30 AAA :0) xx Ros xx

  • Hoping everything is fine Carole. Breast cancer is a horrible disease. I have been for one or two of them and they don't half hurt! It's like being squeezed in a vice.

  • Will keep you in my thoughts Carole, please god all will be well x x x x

  • Hope al goes well for you, I'm sure it will. I had BC just over 18 months ago and beat the little b****r. I will also be going back for another Mammogram in November, so I can relate to your anxiety. Fingers crossed for you - stay positive!

    Meant to add that the BC was a breeze compared to the lung disease I now have - 'woken up' by the chemo according to a few of the specialists! Ho Hum...!
