This Community has been spammed with a vengeance!! Page after page of spam!! PLEASE...Stop them! At this point it is all but impossible to even find the last true post!!!! I tried to report them but it goes on for pages and pages!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried to contact you thru the "contact us" site and could not provide whatever the hecks you wanted !! I am beyond frustrated! This problem not only continues but has gown exponentially!! It must be stopped or you can literally bid farewell to anyone posting in this community as it is fruitless!
Jackie, I can imagine how distraught you must be...Not the news you'd hoped for, I am sure! I cannot give you any information as to the likelihood of a recurrence while on chemo though I must admit I'd not heard of it before.
It must seem a long time until April 2nd and that only gives you more time to worry! One word of caution: Challenges find us without us painting a target on our backs with worry! Do your best to distract yourself during this time. And for heaven's sake, don't waste that worry...Hopefully the news will be good and you will have wasted perfectly good worry that you may need for something else one day!
Please know that we will be with you in spirit on April 2nd! And do let us know how you are doing!
Basically, for most of us the rads were the least difficult of treatments. Some do tend to grow a bit more tired toward the end, and others have some "sunburn" ...There have been times when this has happened and their physicians stop the trx for a while to let the breast calm down.
So, regarding times, whichever is the most convenient for you. The trxs themselves take but a very little time and for most of us the drive there and back were much longer than the rads.
Wishing you much luck, and may this prove to be an easy approach for you.
I hope you can recognize how insulting it is to be shouted at to "GROW UP AND ACCEPT IT!" This is not the way we speak to each other. We welcome your input but would ask that you treat others with the respect you would like.
Seafairy, everything you post might be absolutely correct...or not, but that isn't the issue. PLEASE when responding to anyone in our community, be KIND above all!! No one wants to seek information and be asked "...are you just stupid..."!!! That is mean and totally unnecessary.
We try very hard to encourage and reassure our members that there is no such thing as a dumb question! What is dumb is NOT asking the questions and living in ignorance!
Even when we differ greatly in recommendations, experiences and ideas, we all deserve to be treated with respect. PLEASE, Seafairy, keep that in mind,. OK?
However, we learn after many such incidences not to borrow trouble...Sadly it find you all too easy without your assistance!
At this juncture you have no real reason to be concerned...Most likely they did not get a clear enough picture to simply dismiss you and send you home. They are being very careful and that is good!
If they either did not get a good image or if they saw something which they felt warranted closer examination, it is in your best interest for them to make sure exactly what might or might not be going on.
So, a very long answer to a simple question...NO! Wait to know if there is reason for worry.
In the meantime, please know that if a lump were found, 80% are benign! Also, know that you will be in our thoughts...We'll send you tons of good wishes for a lovely non-issue result!!
