Last year, I had a few months of worry while the medics investigated my "bits" which were misbehaving, and I eventually needed surgery in October. Another anxious wait, then I finally got the all-clear. Job done. Move on...
This year, a new challenge. Oh joy....
A routine mammogram, at the beginning of Feb, threw up an anomaly that needed more investigations. I had no symptoms, so was caught unawares and got quite a shock. Scans and biopsies followed, resulting in a diagnosis needing surgery. They say they've caught it early.
The good news is that it's contained within the milk duct and the lumpectomy should sort it out. 5 out of 6 patients need no further intervention, so I'm hoping I'm one of the 5! If it proves not to be the case, then I'll be facing either further surgery or radiotherapy. Eek!
My GP has been very supportive and I've got phone numbers to ring if I have any questions or concerns. My partner, as ever, has been wonderful, but I hate to see the distress on his face when the subject comes up. I also hate putting him through this.
So ladies, I urge you not to put off attending your mammograms and if in doubt about anything with regard to your boobs, please have it looked at.
Meanwhile, please keep your fingers crossed for me thank you x
