3 weeks ago I had to have a light heated 'chat' with my daughters about the BRCA test's I was about to have and the implications that could possibly follow on from this (don't worry, all will be fine I told them- inside my stomach was in knot's & still is, worrying that if I have it and iv passed it on to them, they have such possibly life changing decisions to make if the result is positive.
3 days ago I went to my doctors as the pain in my shoulder has got progressively worse over the last month and now affects my neck and i have a pain in my chest that hurts when i breathe.My lovely doctor said that as it was understandable i might be worried following my TAH 6 months ago, she was however alarmed enough to send me immediately for a full blood test (including C125) and a chest x ray.
Today my gorgeous 28 year old son has had an MRI scan in Leeds as his doctors and consultants think the brain tumour he had 7 years ago has come back.
So why am i worrying you ask, well now iv just realised.... the BRCA test will come back negative, my bloods and x rays will show nothing worse than a trapped nerve and my adorable son will be fine and just need stronger glasses!............. However, all the worrying about things that are unlikely to happen will worry me into having a blooming heart attack and that, not the bloody cancer will kill me off!!!! lol. hahaha.
(On reading this back, some of you lovely ladies may conduce that iv lost the plot maybe i have, but if it makes you laugh then it's made my day xxxx)
