I do have breast cancer, fortunately it's the 'best' kind to have, a simple lumpectomy and some radiotherapy should do the trick. I have an MRI booked for next week just to double check, then I see the surgeon again on the 17th of Dec and will be in hospital just after Christmas. Now I know for sure, I am fine with it, I am much more positive as there is a 95% success rate with this form of cancer. The last 10 days have been hell, the waiting is far worse than knowing. The breast cancer nurses are wonderful and explain things in detail, they have given me an information pack to look through and are always available if I have any questions...so after the longest night of my life today is looking better. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and well wishes {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{everyone}}}}}}}}}}}}}

What a relief, in so many ways.  I'm sorry you do have cancer, but glad it's the "best" kind.  And so glad your wait is over, that the snow didn't extend your worry.

Oh Raeven!!!!! Like Nonny, I hate that you have breast cancer, but I'm so glad it's the "best" kind. I remember just a year ago when my doc told me I had endometrial cancer, but to buck up because it was the "best" kind of female cancer to have with a 95% success rate. My first thought was, "Well, then YOU have it FOR me!" Then I calmed down and researched and listened to my surgeon and other docs and got in asap and had the parts all removed and underwent radiotherapy and here I am one year later (to the day) and I'm cancer free and I feel great and each and every day is a blessing.

And I tell you this so that you know you aren't alone and that loads of us will be pulling for you -- but it begins with you. Keep that great attitude - it's 90% of the success of this all.

Love to you, Raeven.

{{{{{{{Rae}}}}}}} That's really good news. My mom had the same and had a radiotherapy as well. She says it is rather exhausting and you'll sleep badly and feel weak and you might even feel a bit sick but it's not as bad as a chemo and you'll get over the after effects quicker.
But as you're younger than my mom (she had the surgery when she was almost 70), I expect you to live through it with much less problems.

*huuuuuuuge hug*
(btw, my mom had her last "10,000 miles inspection" as she calls it last May and was declared completely healed :))

I was very very lucky that the person who told me that it was the "best" kind of cancer was a nurse practitioner, retired Navy, with the best communication skills of any health care provider I've ever had.  The person delivering the news and the tone of voice really makes a difference with that kind of pronouncement.

Please don't feel badly, Nonny. I was pretty quiet about it at the time, and I also wasn't visiting here while I dealt with all of it, so you had no way of knowing. Just knowing you are there now for Raeven is good.

And 4 years for you -- excellent. :clap: :boogie:  

Together we'll just keep reminding Raeven that this is a winnable fight. :hugs:
