I have just returned from the BCNA Forum held on the Gold Coast and must say it was an informative forum that focuses on living well after breast cancer.
I myself have been suffering from depression and anxiety following treatment and found the information sessions on depression very helpful - not only in treatments etc but also realising that having depression following treatment is not unusual, that doesn't mean all women will experience depresssion but many do.
Thank you BCNA for holding these forums around the country.
It has been a while since I have posted anything as I have been in a bit of a funk....
Finished rads early this month and my skin has healed well although on some parts of the breast it it feels a bit reptilian though I'm sure that will improve in time.
I haven't blogged for a while I've been taking time out of cancer world and trying to find real world. Spent a week with my mum and dad back home in Port Douglas being spoilt and loving the warmth of weather and family, on returning my husband whisked me of to Melbourne for a friends wedding and loads of lovely food, coffees and pastries ( at Brunettis god I love that place!!) and wine, bookshops, museums, art gallerys. Had a wonderful time and great for my husband and I to reconnect with each other.
Has anyone else had an "organising seroma" I have been diagnosed with one and it is very large and sore. Back to GP tomorrow to find out what they are proposing as treatment, draining it, or going back into to surgery. Neither of which is appealing to me but I would lke to get rid of it. Any advice experience of an "organising seroma" from anyone with would be great. Georgie
I was told yesterday I have breast cancer, what now...my husband is away and will be returning home for the appt with the surgeon tomorrow, jeez what is happening ? I went into the doctors yesterday expecting him to tell me that I had a fibroandenoma- he just leaned across the desk and said " I afraid the news is not good" I just sat there. I can't believe this is happenning is there anyone one out there I could chat to ?
