Second time round?

Hi all,

Just after some advice. It's now 14 months since my breast cancer diagnosis and double mastectomy and all seemed good until I had an ultrasound on my pelvis due to problems with my periods. The ultrasound has shown two abnormalities in my uterus, one 2.5cm and the other 1.2cm. One could be a fibroid but it's not clear and the other, well no idea. My gp is referring me to a gyno and recommended I be seen within 4 weeks and said to be prepared for it not being good.

Joining the conversation

Hi ladies and gents,

 

I've been reading everyone's posts with interest since I was diagnosed with BC last September and would like to thank everyone for the great advice and helpful hints along the way.

 

I thought it was time to say hi and join the conversation from time to time.

Morning all,

We're proud to feature real women and their families in all the photos we use - but we are running a little low and need to update our image library.

If you would be happy for us to use images of you on our website, in presentations, or in our information resources and promotional materials please email them to photos@bcna.org.au and include your full name in the subject line.

The photos may be of you before, during or after treatment, with your partner and families, with your pets or just celebrating life and doing something you enjoy.

Get moving in style
