Hi Jessica, I am trying to have the 'dont cry about spilt milk attitude.' I like replying with the blog/post here. I do not have BC. The doctor does however want me to go in every 6 months to mamo the lesion that was biopsed. My sons wedding/reception (on our property) on Aug 9th went well. The DJ and dance floor were Great! The tent and reception went well! The DJ and the bar tender tell me that we could make a lot of money hosting weddings at our place. I do not have the energy for that tupe of thing. My sister who died of BC in 1985, her daughter was here with her new breasts. Che opted to get both removed because of possible BC and for cosmetic reasons (breats feeding 4 kids.) She has my sisters attitude and strength. With my FMS and IC i am still recovering from the wedding/reception. Wishing I was in my 20 s again : ) TTFN, ChrisNesView Thread
Hi vajanie, Thank You for your support. One thing at a time. My hip is still healing. My husband is out of town working. Im hoping that the MAYO appointment is still a go. My husbands niece may be able to come and take care of my daughter. I did not want anyone to know about my lesion (unless I was the one to tell them.) I did not know my husband had told his siblings and they told their children. The dogs are another story (they are all dogs with problems) so they are not accustom to strangers. I have one 10lb dog that loves everyone. My other 10ld dog...as long as you ignore her she will probably be fine, she has to warm up to people. My Eski is out doors all day long and inside at night, he also needs to be ignored. I feel for these animals who were abused and since I am at home, I have room for the dogs. Strong(?) I do not feel strong, I feel stuck. I also need to be here for my daughter. Thank You, ChrisView Thread
...continued. i dont know why this messes up on my phone. feeling overwhelmed with this breast thing coming up again, the fact that my husband wants a divorce. I hear him out in the yard in his hot tub swareing about me while he makes his notes about me in his phone. I was all choked up last night, he listened to me then he took his glass of wine out to the hot tub and was yelling into his phones note pad about me. It was rather upsetting. He wants me to be grateful to him that he taked off time from work to help me get to my doctors appointments, it s great that he can help me out this way but i believe it is his job as my husband to help me.I am starting to cry again. I need to check out. Thank You, ChrisView Thread
vajanie, Hi, I am doing ok. The PT I have to do for my hip has been tough. i am so tired after PT. My husband has made an appointment for me to gomto MAYO for my breast on April 8th. I did not know he was going to do that. I had pushed the breast thing way back in my mind. Today I had to call MAYO and see what other information they need from me. I found out that they may need me to stay in Minneapolis for possibly 5 days. It seems to soon now. I also dont know what to do with my daughter, she shouldnt miss any more time from school. i have 3 dogs that I need to find some one to care for them. I did email my brother about what is going on just incase i will need to stay at his place. I hear what you are saying about an illness bringing the family together, we went through that with both our parents. Easter is this weekend and now I know I will be what they all talk about. I have not heard who is getting together with whom. But some of them always get together. I had a bad day today feeling overView Thread
Hi brcansur , I hear everything you have to say. It is tough , I know. I still tear up after all these year having lost my sister in 1985. I know exactly what you are saying, I spoke almost the same words to my sister-in-law when I saw her for the first time after her breast cancer. I told her it is not that we don't care, its just that it hits so close to home having lost our sister to BC. I have 3 sisters and 6 brothers still living. My Mom was the back bone to our family, she kept the order and we all respected her. She had her hands full with all of us. Both my parents are gone now, Mom passed in 1998, and Dad in 2010. Since then the family has split a bit with out Mom there to be the back bone. I also understand what you are saying about disconnecting, but that is difficult to do. My husband wants a divorce and I am disabled and on SSDI. I don't really have anyone to turn to. I had my hip surgery yesterday ...I had better go lay down. I appreciate your words : ) Thank You, ChrisView Thread
what do you know. I got a small response from my sister. she sd they have been in Texas visiting their son. She said 'you' have a lot going on. She said I hope you are holding up. Now i have heard from 2 of my sisters, i know i wont hear from my 3rd sister. I want to thank Allmof you on this site for your support. I hope my posts from my phone are not to confusing. Thank You, ChrisView Thread
..(i am unable to correct this on my phone curser wont work properly)....continued (trying to do this from my phone) what my lump is for sure. I have told 2 of my sisters about my lesion, neither has responded. I did get one response to my hip operation from one of them. My other sister is...estrenged to me because i have a gay son. I hope you are open minded, i dont mean to ofend. maybe it (my breast lesion) is just hitting to close to my other sisters death and they do not know how to respond. I have made 5 phone calls to the medical facilitys around my location and 2 of them do BB by MRI (i cant have an MRI do to my implant) but none do the CT biopsy that i will probably need. I will have to plan a trip to the city Minneapolis when my hip heals (I assume that someplace there wouls do the CT biopsy). I had a nurse aproach me when i was having my EKG for my hip operation and she said she also had POP and has had pain ever since, she also said that she does not understand why thay cant fix her botched operation. the whole time this nurse was talking in a wisper and looking at the door. Yes, it will be nice to take my 2 little dogs for walks this spring when my hip is all healed up. Take Care and Thank you for your advice and shareing.View Thread
Hey Janie, Thank You so much for shareing. Cancer is a bugger no mater what age.
A few years ago my sister-in-law had BC and skin cancer at the same time. she had her breast removed and now has a nice implant. at the time i couldnt even get myself to send her a cardi. when they came up from Az in 2010 for my fathers funeral i gave her a hug and explained how it brought back all the memories of my sisters BC and death. She said she understood. we talked a little about her BC and then i felt bad but i asked her what she thought about my lump in my arm (i didnt want to draw attention to my troubles) she said that the lump should be biop. I have wanted to call her with what is going on now with my lesion but feel like i am crying wolf when i dont even know for sure what it isView Thread
Hey, on 2/28/13 when I went in for my breast biopsy that did not happen because they could not get at my lesion. I asked the doctor about the lump in my arm. I also asked about the fact that I had pre-cancer cells of my cervix in 1998. At that time I had a leep procedure and my next pap came back ok. I asked a nurse about my cervix in 2010 and the pre-cancer cells. That nurse said that cancer is cancer she said they just call it pre- cancer. In 2002 I had to have a TAH (total abdominal hysterectomy) because after the birth of my daughter I had POP (pelvic organ prolapse)(and a posterior repair) the doctor left my ovaries, I don't know why he left my ovaries (I am told it was because I was 36 yr old) but I have had endometriosis and fibroids removed two times (2000 and 2002). I have had a pear size cyst removed (2000) and endo removed in 2000 and 2002 (I think it was a long time ago.)
Is any of this related to Breast cancer?
I know I still have endometriosis, and scar tissue, I have CPP (chronic pelvic pain.)
I also have Interstitial Cystitis, my bladder has shrunk to 400ml ( a normal bladder holds about 1,200ml) I have scaring and pinpoint bleeding all over my bladder. My Rx s to help me get through the day with IC (I take 10 to 11 pills a day) my Rx run a month about 630.00 per month. I have been on SSDI disability since 2009.
