Its been quite a while since I have posted anything , (what can I say... I have been slack. ), but in that time I have had upteen doctors visits, another small amount of surgery and a nipple reconstruction. Tomorrow I am getting the final touches on my reconstructed breast... I am getting the areola tattooed. I am so looking forward to that, I will finally have what resembles a normal looking breast... ( well apart from the scars ). I still have some swelling in my reconstructed breast... ( I had the surgery in Sept last yr ) but it is going... slowly but still going..
Hi All, I am probably worrying over nothing and hope that some of you brave ladies can help me.
Back in 2010 I had a full hysterectomy as i had a small carcinoma in my right overy.
Recently I have been feeling very tired and just not right and on Saturday I did a self examination and found a lump under my right arm, it seems to be a couple of centimeters in size. I only found it because it was uncomfortable to lie on my side in bed. Now i am getting pains under my arms, into my right breast and up the right side of my neck
Well my I got my results yesterday and I'm relieved to say I got very good news! I'm over the moon and have been celebrating ever since! :-)
Lung tumours have reduced in size and number, no new lesions in bones, and no new growths or spread anywhere in my body that they can detect! Yipee!
I'm so relieved! While they classify my disease as "stable" at the moment, despite there being some regression, I'll take that! Stable is fantastic as far as I'm concerned! I just didnt want anything new appearing...that was my wish!

I just cant seem to get out of this depression haze. The tears are flowing and I can not pull myself out of it. My beautiful 4yo daughter has had to entertain herself today.I have so far managed to hide the tears from her.
I feel like this journey is never going to end.
