Well, I shouldn't be surprised by this body, but this week's situation did startle me. My latest mammogram has thrown up an anomaly As if everything else going on in this carcass of mine isn't enough lol!
Anyway, I got a callback on Thursday and attended at the breast-care clinic yesterday for further scans and investigations. Afterwards, I went in to see what the scans showed. It's very pretty and diaphanous, rather like a spider's web that has been stretched out. It's not small. So, it's a biopsy for me in 2 weeks' time, with the results of that the following week, hopefully. Likely an op after that.
Hey ho, it's a strange old life, isn't it... Am trying to stay philosophical about it. I had the same thing going on last year with my womb and it took 4 months to get to the end of that episode and get the all-clear after the op. Have hated my boobs since I was 12 years old. They have their own postcode and enter the room before the rest of me does! Men talk to them and rarely make eye contact lol. Ironic that I've been buying sexy lingerie recently pml.
My wonderful partner loves my chest and is now worried for me. Bless him, he brought me beautiful roses after clinic yesterday and filled the car with some citrus fruit trees I've been hankering after for months. It's not every day I sit in the car with the scent of lemons
My smiles of appreciation made his eyes well up and we exchanged lots of cuddles. I know he'll be there for me, whatever happens. I just hope that it will all come to nowt, but if it goes the other way, then I couldn't wish for a better companion to see me through the challenges.
He's a diamond. My kitchen is full of the flowers he has bought me over the past month, and the porch smells of the lovely new arrivals which also include a massive rosemary bush and an olive tree. It is a healing place to be and I'll be spending even more time out there pottering with my beloved plants.
I'm blessed in so many ways, but am sad that my poor soul-mate is having to witness these medical issues that are part of our life together. I wish for his sake that it weren't so.
