Hey Jo,

I totally understand being freaked out when things seem to happen so quickly, especially when the story seems to be changing rapidly. It can be very scary indeed and you just don't know what to think.

My consultants have always been very keen to emphasise that things that look odd are both a) very carefully and quickly investigated and also b) usually benign, especially when it comes to cysts, which can pop up pretty quickly, apparently.

It's tough with the weekend looming ahead before your appointment on Monday, and nobody would pretend that the waiting game is an easy time! However the sooner you do find out what is what, the sooner you will know what there is to deal with. I hope your weekend is as restful as possible and that the results of your appointment are just what you would like to hear. Very best of good luck wishes for Monday. Keep us all posted.

Best wishes,



Thank u for your kind words , it's good I'm getting seen quick but trying not to think about it but it's always there . Will let u know how I get on . Thank u again x


Hi there Jo

So sorry that you are going through this. Most cysts are benign, but the waiting game is awful. Even if there is something there , at least it has been caught very early. Poor you , you are still getting over a major operation and now this. Try to keep busy between now and then , spend time with people you love and try to get as much exercise as possible....not the best time of the year

Do.let us know how you get on Jo

Love and hugs xx
