Hi,

 

Just looking to off load a little, caring for my children I seem to have forgotten about my own health. I am awful with making appointments for myself, but very quick to get the kids checked out.

 

Not sure if I have anything to worry about as yet, but admit to being a little anxious as going for a breast screening on Thursday.

 

I am mixed to it being nothing to worry about and maybe I have left it too late. Thinking worse case scenario, looking at breast cancer. Then it getting everything in place for the kids.

 

I had trouble breast feeding my youngest and she is coming up 4 :(. Also if it does come back positive treatment can happen fast and not very nice. So just in a state of limbo at the moment. Not really having any one to talk to.

 

Just looking at a picture of lemons on fb made me check myself, went to dr's hoping she say it hormones or just an infection. Not felt very well since christmas either.

 

Ladies do please check yourselfs.

 

Thanks

 

PAC

That's sounds worrying for you.
I had a private health screening through hubby's work a few years back and they decided that I should have a mammogram,I was a little worried but thankfully it was okay. Apparently I have lumpy boobs (as many women do )so makes self screening pretty pointless.
I had a bit of a scare a couple of years ago as suddenly felt a lump and made an appointment to see GP, by the time I had the appointment the lump had disappeared as it was due to hormones and I felt a bit daft. Your post reminds me that it was wrong to feel daft and better be safe than sorry.

Unfortunately stress does affect your health, my DH proves this, he has been on antibiotics pretty much consistently since beginning of Jan and is now coming out in hives. (He was on antibiotics for about six months of last year as well.)

I have my fingers crossed that your appointment shows that you have nothing to worry about.

Big hugs

Thanks, MCL, think being in limbo and with thinking lots of what if's. Life is very stressful at the moment. With PA for K not showing up for work. Saying she had no phone working to let us know she was ill, but working when it comes to chasing her money. Just going through the process of over night respite for him too.

 

Not heard anything from my mother since before christmas, she told my oldest son she don't like K, or having him around. I stopped visiting them now, but still got 5 kids and dh to sort out. Needing just to vent out my worries a little. Hardly any one use this forum any more. So guess it letting out without a big audience too.

 

Glad yours turned out ok, thanks for the fingers x too. Your poor dh must be feeling run down.

 

Guess it taking health and life for granted, this has given me a bit of a wake up call.

 

I am never normally ill, way to busy for all that.

 

thanks for the hug

 

PAC xx

I'm thinking of you. My DD has just been to the breast clinic for screening and was very worried. In her case, there's nothing to worry about. Isn't the NHS wonderful in these circumstances? Thy don't take any chances and check things out thoroughly.

 

I do hope that everything goes well for you. The odds are that 90% of referrals require no further treatment.

 

Please let us know how you get on. xx

Hi PAC

 

I had to go for that other wonderful woman's exam yesterday, I'd put it off for about 6 months.  I'm usually on the ball over anything like that  but have been poked, prodded & examined so much over the last 4 years or so for other health issues, I buried my head on this one.

 

I'm sure everything will be fine & you'll have peace of mind.

 

Massive hugs hun xXx

Hi Pac

Went through similar a few years ago and had to have further tests - I too imagined the worse (I think it's human nature isn't it). Luckily was eventually given the all clear.

Really hoping you get a similar outcome, my thoughts are with you xx
