  • Since my diag with breast cancer in Nov 2014 I haven't gone a day without worrying about cancer. I recently got the first 12 mthly all clear following ultrasound and mammogram but now I have thickening in the lining of the uterus. I have to wait at least two weeks to even speak to my gyno as she is off on holidays so every day is such a worry. Looks like a hysterectomy for me now, something I didn't need.

  • If you go on to Mumsnet, General Health, there's a long-running thread called The Tamoxigang. This is a group of women who are currently going through, or have been through, chemo for breast cancer. (Not just those on tamoxifen.) One or two have also had preventive surgery to remove their ovaries. You might find their experiences helpful. Aches and pains in joints seem to be a common symptom of chemo.


  • Remember the feeling. The first year was awful. Just couldn't believe that I was free of it. But it does get easier. Good luck xx

  • Hope all goes well for you at your check up. Its always worrying but has to be done. Easy to say dont worry but I think we all do. Mine on 29th and dreading it but hoping for a scan and treatment rather than this watch and wait which I find so hard. Lots of love Carole xx

  • Hi, I know that feeling all too well as anxiety always creeps up on before each appointment. My bowels go into overdrive and I get really bad stomach gripes. It took a while for the penny to drop, that it was anxiety as I used to convince myself something was wrong. I now know that's its like IBS. Good luck with your appointment on the 16th. Kerry x

  • Well it can take up to a year for the body to come back to some kind of normality after treatment but you will still get tired and achy so dont worry. It is always the same coming up to check ups, I had my bag packed for hospital at one stage before I went to gp with tummy ache, He couldnt find a thing wrong just that my intestines had prob more room since womb and ovaries and huge melon like cyst gone. So try not to worry, easier said than done but wishing you all the very best for the 16th

  • Thanks all for your replies trying keep myself busy so as not to dwell on it probably be all fine and will feel like an idiot after x
