3rd time???

Started by Anonymous on 19 October 2009 at 13:09

Just found this here goes!

Had breast cancer twice already and this morning the doctor has referred me to the breast unit for a suspected 3 rd tumour. I feel so weary at the thought of the waiting , the anxiety , telling everyone and the thought of having to go through it all again.

Its over 2 yrs since my treatment finished and I thought I had my lfe back on track..might have known it was too good to be true. Ive been feeling abit twitchy for a few weeks and then last night I dreamt i found blood on my bra from my nipple! ( loopy I know! ) I checked myself and ended up at the doctors.

Thanks for listening.

    Hi Suze

    I've just discovered this site. 

    Exactly the same thing has happened to me.  The last time I was diagnosed was last year.  This is my third time too.  I had all the treatments, lost my hair, etc, for them to tell me that I had to live with this horrible disease.  I am only 40 years of age and it is a very hardthing to deal with.  I can understand what you are going through.  The best advice I can give is don't give up. There are days where I'm really down and other days I am happy.  Just be strong and you will get through it.

    Wow, suze, you are on quite a journey! Or should I say rollercoaster. I can't imagine the emotions you must be going through. But stay strong - I hope posting here will help.

    Find one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Thoughts with you

    Hi Suze,

    I know how you feel and wish I could give you a hug and say it will be alright.You know that the good and bad days are there and we each find our own way to cope.At the moment I dont always cope so well with everything, but I keep trying to find something that stops the world rocking each time I receive bad news.

    Take care
