Ok friends,
I am here once again to ask for prayers for a good check up report. I go on Wednesday for full mammo,bloodwork,bone density(to check for any pill damage) and to see my oncologist and radiation therapist. And as it is every 6 months I am having an anxiety over load going on here, so all the support,comments,thoughts and prayers are all very welcome. You would think these 6 month check ups would get easier but they don't. At least not for me. I know there are ladies on here going thru much more difficult ordeals but just a quick thought my way is appreciated. I know you all know exactly how I feel.The only support I have this time around other than here is my sweet husband. You guys are my cancer family.
Thanks for reading.
Blessings.............

Hi Pat,
Oh I so relate to the stress before appointments! It never gets easier even after nearly 4 years for me. My bloodwork came back fine a few weeks ago, have an mri next month and then, prayerfully, I can say I will relax until radiology oncology in November. I appreciate all the follow up with the docs even tho I get scared. I like to be watched closely.
Only we who have been there can truly relate - family and friends are wonderful, but its different with those of us who have walked this road.
I will be praying hard for a great checkup for you!!!! Will wait for your post and will think of you with positive thoughts in the meantime!!!! ~ Jenna

Pat,
It's amazing how we all feel you anxiety. Jenna is 4 yrs. out and feels it , and I am one year out and feel it too!
These appointments and tests make us all feel so vulnerable - because no matter how positive, strong and independent we are at all other times - we are not like that when we go for these appointments. Scared, vulnerable and numb is how I feel.
So knowing that I will be praying that you have a good checkup with equally good test results.
Let us know how it all goes on Wed.
Judy

Pat,
This is my 2nd time trying to post to you. I so understand how you feel. I go for my first three month check ups on Thurs. and Friday and i'm worried sick, especially since i'm not on any hormone therapy. I don't know what to even expect at these visits. I know i will be getting tumor markers checked for sure and i don't know what my p.s. is gonna say about these scars and nipples. It's like i'm back to square one, but i will be thinking of you and praying for good clean results for you sweet lady! I'm just looking for another 3 clean months to breathe! We can pretend we are with each other thru this. Keep me posted and always know my thoughts and positive prayers are with you!
Love, hugs and tons of lucky shamrocks

You are certainly not alone in the fear dept.
We are all with you. I get jitters everytime I
step into the drs. office after a test or blood test.
We are normal.
I am saying a prayer for you and you have my support

I GOT AN ALLLLL GOOOD REPORT!!!!!

Thank you ladies for all the prayers and positive thoughts!! I got all good reports today!!! Mammo was good, labs were good, exams by 2 doctors were both good. So, one more 6 month visit and if all is well I get to wait a year to get another check up!!! And one of my doctors told me that it is totally normal for breast cancer patients to go into 'anxiety overload' beforethey get mammos because of all the 'what if's'.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU ! for all of you being here for me on such short notice.

Hi Pat,

I sweat it every time I have to go in - because we want the good news and are so worried that it will be bad news. We can only pray.
If I lived close to you I would bring you over a batch of my chocolate chip cookies - that is if you like chocolate - everyone says they are good and they seem to go whenever I take a plate to work - I sure enjoy eating them.

Take care and God Bless you and I know that all will be well. You have to much to do,

Love to all

Mary
