What a great overview to newbies by one who has been there/done that! Best advice of all? "Enjoy what we can, cry when we want and just take each day or even each hour the best you can."
What joys have come to your life since the day when the world tilted radically, and you began a journey you'd never anticipated! Marriages and births and reminders...sweet reminders of life!! Yes, the "what ifs" have a way of stalking us, but, if it weren't BC it would be another fear I am sure! (Some, such as myself, manage to collect and bundle fears, but not everyone is that talented!! )
So, "Blondie"!! Thanks for the upbeat reminder and encouragement!! Have a wonderful holiday season!!
Sounds like things are going pretty well...Won't congratulate you, however, until the report on the kidney scan comes back wonderfully normal too!! (No need to tempt the fates!) I am delighted and expect that we will soon be celebrating another good year. Let us know when we can inflate the balloons!!
Sounds like you have had better days than those recently. I am so glad, however, that your husband appears to be in your corner and on the same page....Can make a big difference!!
Glad, too, that neither you nor your medical team are simply sweeping this under the rug, but are making sure you know what is happening. I have not had a similar experience, but I do know that limbo sucks and how concerned you must be!
You will remain in my thoughts while you await the full report. Please let us know how you are doing.
Sorry for this concern! Sometimes what we imagine is far more scary than reality!
Some good things to consider: It is unusual for pain to accompany breast cancer. (Not unheard of, but not the norm either.) Also 80% of lumps are benign.
That being said, it must also be remembered that our bodies often try to tell us when something is amiss...It then is up to us to follow thru and find out what the cause might be. No matter what we may offer, until you get a definitive answer, you will not relax. So...Get to the doctor and have it checked!!
