Oh trg3 I wish I could just put my arms around you and hug you. I am so utterly sorry to hear your news. It is so worrying. I was diagnosed on 2 Oct 2015. I had chemo then surgery removing both breasts I am triple negative. It is an utter game of chance isn't it. I have to now attend a liver consultant as chemo damaged my liver. There is also a concern that it could turn to cancer. It's a bloody nightmare. I understand totally how you are feeling. It's as though the minute you are 'getting there' someone pulls the rug from underneath you. I am sending all my love and best wishes, and hope you will make an absolute full recovery. Lainey 💐💐💐💐

Hi, I saw your post re liver damage, as you have probably seen in my posts my treatment is suspended awaiting heart damage to recover, I'm her2, so I know what you mean about having the rug pulled. I met a friend yesterday who is 5 years into remission, she has had barely six months without a new scare, with 2 biopsies for possible endometrial cancer through tamoxifen, a bone scare and a very complex liver problem. It wasn't easy to resolve and ultimately needed some surgery, but she is fine. I am slowly learning - with plenty of panic, tears, sleepless nights and anger - that ultimately we just all need to survive. How we get to that point is complicated sometimes, it's not a lifestyle we would choose. It involves a lot of loss and sacrifice and picking ourselves up, finding more energy and more courage....sending you warm wishes.

I wish you and your friend well indeed. It is a tough old road alright and yes survival is all we want. It's frightening that the treatment can cure you but also Has the potential to kill you too. Sending all the best wishes in the world xx

So sorry to read your news, sending good luck love and hugs your way for the coming weeks, stay strong xxxxx

Oh I am so sorry you have had this terrible news. Sometimes we just can't get a break. I hope things will turn around for you. Hugs

So sorry to hear this. Sending love and prayers xxx

So sorry you have had this news. Sending lots of hugs your way. On the positive side, it seems they have discovered it early on because of the other monitoring they have been doing. We will all be thinking of you and sending you our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

So sorry this has happened. It is hard to find positives sometimes but if you hadn't had the scan the ovarian cancer could have sat there quietly for much longer at least something is being done. Sending healing thoughts. So very tough on you. Wendy x

I'm so sorry, it is the type of news we all dread. I can't imagine how you are feeling, this illness is just so bloody unfair and cruel. If you are BRCA they will take everything out - it's tough to face but for the experts it is more predictable than some, and that is on your side. As Lainey 66 says, it is so much down to chance. Be kind to yourself, it's fine to feel terrified, angry and anything else. Best wishes.

I was very sad to read your post - cancer can be so very cruel. Adding my hugs and positive thoughts to those from the rest of the girls. Wishing you all the luck in the world. caroline xx
