Hello to you all,
I found you whilst searching for help.
I have been called back for a 2nd mamogram and ultra sound scans etc, i think its my left breast as it was extremely painfull during the first screening.I know i should not worry until i find out anything, but us woman we are good at worrying !, I have been ill for sometime ie very tired, repeated chest infections and gini problems that wont go away etc etc.
i remember some years ago that i mentioned to my gp that i had a pea size hard lump under my left armpit, he said not to worry as it was to far away from the breast so nothing was done, more recently around 6 months ago, an area on the same breast was causing me pain, there was also a large lump, well not a lump as such, anyway when at gp re gini probs and yet more tests i mentioned my left breast, he said he could not feel anything!, 4 weeks later i got my mamogram and within days i am called back...my gp did find something wrong with my blood , he says i have a very low red blood cell count BUT i am not enemic !.....Now with that in mind and this call back I am worried...........I know i am prob waffling a bit, but i do not have family to speak to, i am a single parent (older than average, well 50) to an 11 year old girl and a almost 13 year old boy. of course i dont want to have breast cancer and die, but my concerns are of course for my children............my call back is this coming monday 24th, they have told me to bring someone with me, which of course, being a woman, i read into it i will need support as i will be getting bad news !..what are we like, i was tempted to put a lol then, but i dont feel like laughing really................i hope as a new member and being my first post i have not waffled too much....hugs to all xXx
