My Biggest Challenge

#1
Well ladies,
:secret:
I have been putting off doing this. Didn't know how to say it when to say it or even whether to say it, but you are all so open and honest on here. I will be too.
I have been diagnosed with breast cancer.:sigh:
It's a shock for me and my family:eek:
It's something you don't think will happen to you::cry:
It's the fear of the uncertainty of what will be in store for me :confused:
I've had it confirmed on one side and still having tests for a possibility on the other :mad::mad:
How can that be? I've had regular mammograms - clear.
I found a lump :0bathtime: - and now this.
So many things going round in my head as well as hospital appointments, finding out so much in a short space of time.
I have another biopsy today.
My OH and family and friends are being great and I know I'll need their support over the next few months.:grouphugg:
My LLC is also fab and there for me too. I regard her as a friend.
:psiholog:

My operation will be on May 12th. :character00264:
If you have Faith and pray, as I do, please pray for me
otherwise please just wish me well.

One thing is for sure - if I hadn't done LL I probably would not have found the bloody lump! :thinking2:
It could have saved my life...............

Oh SB(tears in my eyes)! I do wish you well Hun,thinking of you at this sad time,stay strong you will get through this.
I do feel for you so much as I lost a sister to cancer 8 yrs ago,she was only 35, but she did have other medical problems which contributed to it!
As you say though in a way LL did saved your life,as you may not have found the lump when you were bigger.
You've still come on here giving us your support,going through what you are " your an amazing woman",an inspiration to us all!
Hope all goes well with your op,sending you and your family hugs: hugs: and xx's. Take care hunny!

I'm so sorry to hear this.

I recently had a scare, which has led to my hysterectomy (aged 31). There are some other issues which I'll know mire about and have the all clear ( hopefully) after my op on 7/5.

Will be thinking of you and wish you all the best for your op.

Hello my lovely friend....

It was so good to see you yesterday, to spend some time with you - I only wish the news you had brought was not what it was. :(

You know how I feel, about you, and C, and you know I am here for you day or night. Car or no car, I will find a way to come spend time with you, as much or as little as you need.

With the power of love and faith, amazing things can happen.

I won't go on, because you know how I feel, and you know where I am.

Love you girl,

Jan

Bless you to the moon, and back.

SB - I know your sheer determination and such positive spirit will guide you through the next few months. I realise how scared you must be inside, not just for yourself, but those around you. You're an extremely stubborn soul and I know you will give these lumps a good kicking out of your system and will never give up the fight!
My thoughts are with you and your family. You are such an inspiration to us all here on the forums - and I know you are an equally guiding soul in your 'real life' too. You are a wonderful human being and even now, you are finding such positive thoughts in something so difficult to talk about.

Thank you for sharing this, your honesty is so encouraging. You will get through this. The fire in your heart is burning far too brightly to be quenched by something like this.

Sending you and your family many hugs. :grouphugg:

Really sorry to hear your news. I can only say thank God you found the lump, and without lighter life who knows if you would have.

Take no prisoners figthing the bl**dy thing. Love and nurture yourself and kick its ass! You have a good group on here that will be sending you all the prayers and positive thoughts they can. It'll be a great place to vent all those difficult feelings you may not want to share with those close to you. Accept all the help and support you can, after all you would do all that and more for others.

Good health and a swift successful treatment program.

Take care lovely girl xx

Oh Sweetheart SB - I missed your post here, whilst checking in on my phone, back online properly now - so catching up.

You are so right to look at the positive, you have found the lump early because you are so lovely and slim now. Being a healthy weight is so, so important.

Give your body everything it needs to fight this!! It is well documented that those with a great postive outlook like yours - do really well.

We are here to support you emotionally - the way you have done for so many of us!!

Good nutrition is a big part of healing, so everything you have learnt about healthy eating on your journey is key to helping you now!!

Kisses - Hannah xx..

Thank you everyone

As we always say this forum is such a great support when we face tough times. And you lot haven't disappointed me.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me messages of support. I know it will really help me through the difficult few months ahead.
I am so lucky to have wonderful family and friends - and that includes you lot.
:thankyou:

I have faith, and will pray for you. So sorry to hear what you're going through. Words aren't enough really. (I had a breast cancer scare just before Christmas and had to have a biopsy at the Royal Marsden - they were amazing. Very kind. The uncertainty and fear were the worst for me... try to remember that whatever happens you are loved.)

You are always such a wonderful support to all of us on here I only wish I could send some strength and support back to you. I will be hoping they found it early enough - it's amazing what doctors/surgeons can do these days. Stay strong (very easy for me to say that I know and so difficult to do). xxx
