I Will Never Stop Smiling!
Goes to Northampton General earlier today into Integrated Surgery. Found a lump in my breast three months ago, to which I've had scans and ultrasounds for.
I'm quite a modest person, and nothing really makes me shy. Taking off my top for a doctor doesn't make me shy in the latest to which he said most women get very embarrassed. I just said to him that he's there to do a job and why should that make me feel embarrassed?
So, after having another scan, ultrasound and mammogram. They shocked me into having a biopsy. I almost freaked out. Needles terrify me. Local anaesthetic, and this humongous looking box thing. I'm still sore now, obviously and will be for the next few days.
But I tell you what. Those guys are the most professional guys in the world. They are very caring and very very dedicated to their patients. The nurses are absolutely without a doubt the kindest people you will ever care to meet.
Anyhow, I will be told my results in two weeks. And do you know what? Now that I know if it is anything less desirable (so to speak) I will be in the care of perhaps the greatest team of people in the world. I have absolutely no worries whatsoever, there are so many options these days and the treatments are 100% modern. I've just witnessed my boyfriends grandmother (at the age of 76) beat bowel cancer. If she can do it, so can I.
I will never stop smiling, and I never want the people closest to me to stop either.
Besides - if it is cancer - I have always wanted to cut off all my hair, just never had the guts... Cheaper than going to the hairdressers!!!
