It never rains but it pours

Hello everyone

How are you all doing?

Not been a good day. Hubby has had a pain behind his eye, went to eye clinic, he's being seen tomorrow afternoon, said there's something squashing his pupil.

And I was examining myself this morning and didn't feel right. Didn't think I'd get an appointment but our pharmacist phoned and got me in. Dr examined me, he said he could feel a lump on right breast and slightly on left one, I'm very sorry. He's referred me and I will be seen within two weeks. What a day. But as the saying goes there's always someone worse off than yourself. Sorry to rabbit on . Love and hugs to you all Lynne xxxx

Oh lynne what a horrible time you're having. We can only hope that you both are fine. I know it's scary being put on the two week pathway but it's usually just to be extra careful not to miss something. I've been on it three times and everything was fine. Take care and try not to worry too much. Debxx

I'm glad you have a good support network, it really helps to be able to talk to people you love.

I'm feeling a bit rubbish at the moment. I've started taking iron again so hopefully I'll start to feel like I've got some energy. I don't know if I mentioned that I have candida in my esophagus so I'm taking even more tablets to get rid of it. I'm also feeling a bit down. Sorry to moan when you're going through something serious. Xx

Hi Lynn. What a horrible time for you! Hope that everything turns out ok for both of you. I had a blood clot behind my eye a couple of years ago and it dispersed itself over several months. Also wife had a breast lump that turned out to be a lipoma and she decided to have it removed anyway. Thinking of you both. All the very best Alf

Oh Lynne

I’m sorry, you’re right it’s not a good day. At least hubby is being seen tomorrow and you will be in a couple of weeks. It’s probably nothing but as we know it’s better to be checked as soon as poss.

Sending you and hubby lots of love and positivity!

Oh Lynn what a horrible day you had. I can imagine that you are very worried right now. My husband had something very similar to do with his eyes. He did get referred to Moorfields in London but I did just turn out to be a cyst that was easily treated. Hopefully your husbands eye problem will turn out to be something similar. I hope you both get answers soon. Take care xx

Firstly please try your best to keep focused on yourself as well as your hubby, I know from personal experience how very tough it can be!

Many years ago a very large lump was found in my right breast which they thought was cancer due to strong family C history. It ended up being a large cyst so try not to worry to much at this very early stage as worrying can make you poorly!:

Lynn feel free to PM me anytime as I'm a good listener!

Please take care of yourself !

Love Trish x

Hi Lynne, I am sorry for the trials you are experiencing. As for your lumps try not to stress (easier said than done). I have just come through breast cancer which is what landed me here on the liver support page (hepatotoxic response to treatment.) If you have two palpable lumps you near certainly do not have BC. Having bilateral cancer is the rarest of the rare. If the doctor really thought there was a concern you would be in having a mammogram and ultrasound within a day or two. I would insist on an ultrasound as my BC did not show up on a mammogram. Also ask if you have dense breast tissue. If you do you will always have to have an ultrasound as well as a mammogram. Even if they are a bit suspicious and send you for a biopsy over 80% are benign but they must ere on the side of caution and extend an over abundance of caution when investigating a lump. My advise is sit with a cup of tea, let the fear and stress wash away, then focus on just today. You will deal with tomorrow when it comes but today is yours for the living. Best wishes to your beloved.

Cheers, Liz

Thank you. Went hospital with hubby, he's got very dry eyes, has to go for another test next where he has to leave car at home as can't drive for 5 hours after test. Dr said if he was worried he would have had him back tomorrow, he said he wasn't concerned. How are you feeling? Take care Lynne

Everything is stable right now, thanks, which I'm grateful for. I'm sure you're both relieved that the doctor isn't too concerned about his eye.

Hi Lynne, I am if truth know a tad fed up, I am 240 days on the list and still waiting. Trying hard to stay positive.

Hi

Sorry you are having to wait so long. You are doing well to stay positive. Take care e

Hi Lynne,

I was sorry to hear you and the hubby got worrying news at the same time - harder to deal with.

Good to hear his doctor is not overly worried but still staying on top of things. A slight lessening of the stress regarding your husband, which I hope is good.

I saw that you had some excellent replies from people with more experience in breast issues than I have - and I learned some things.

Sending you the very best of good wishes that everything goes well!

Best wishes,

Mary

Hi Lynne,

Good to hear that you don't have too long a wait and while 4 hrs is a long appointment, at least you will get all the tests done at once, and hopefully not need anything more.

We are doing fairly well. Hubby doesn't go back to his liver doctor for his next 6 month follow up til June and his last one in Jan his blood work is still improving a tiny bit, his VA doctor had him add a noon time dose of lactulose to improve his pooping LOL and it seems to have worked, so that make me happy :-)

On Apr 9 - I will have seen my oncology surgeon for my 6 month follow up - hopefully he will say things are still where they should be and I am improving and start the nag for losing weight and quitting smoking, which is better than hearing you need to concentrate on getting better. And the 8th I get to see the dermatologist for a follow up for skin cancer and get something off my leg LOL.

So I will be thinking of you on the 9th and sending good vibes and best wishes your way - so at least one of those shivers will be my good vibes to you.

Best wishes,

Mary

p.s. Thank you for asking and I hope I didn't give you more info than you ever wanted to hear.
