Farla...when I asked where the films were she said, "the cancer center"....she is such a professional not to relate "whose fault it was"....My latest films are digital...but the older ones are not.  I guess they like them for comparison.

Thank goodness for computers...so much easier to find things.  We are all sunk if we lose our computers.

Susie, have a great time tomorrow, sounds a Fab. day out and the 40th is such a good excuse,  everything crossed your pain is down to a disk problem and can be sorted without too much hassle. 

Marianna,  hoping the time 'til the 26th goes in a blink of an eye and the result is all you wish for, waiting is arghhhhhhhhhh.

Sharon, thinking of you and Mum, you are here on her behalf, that's Great! Good wishes to you both.

Hi Sharonma,  Still waiting!!  Had the MRI and told they'd discuss at my Dr. Appt. on 31st!!  Called doc office and said I just need the results.  All I know so far is rt. breast, lft. breast okay.  suspicious node. Researching everything now and taking survey, lymphectomy or mastectomy?  just wondering if there is a choice, what's the best choice.  Is it normal for chemo/rad/tamo treatment?

OK, Karen - lets have a good mammo!  You better post soon!  B9. B9.....
Mom813 - Maybe you can have your appt moved up a bit?  You seem to maybe be getting ahead of yourself, and that stage where you are getting the facts, but don't have them all yet is the worst.  Don't plan on anything yet.
Marianna - oh, good luck, just a few more days - B9, B9...

Hi ladies,

I'm having a hard time keeping track of everyone on this thread, so I want to say Good Luck to everyone waiting for news. Thinking of you and betting that all is B9!!!!!!!

Hug,
Elaine

Re:The waiting room!!! - Monday, August 23, 2010 8:01 AM
Susie -sorry to be coming in a bit late on this,  I have pretty much the same symptoms and I was blaming it on the Arimidex. If I sit too long it takes me a while to get on my feet and moving around!   After seeing my podiatrist he believes he can take care of all of this with orthotics in my shoes!  I have these big bumps on the top of my feet and I didn't want to come here and ask if anyone had heard of bone mets to the metatarsals!  I figured you would all laugh me right out of the nwaiting room!  My point is that we still can have NORMAL issues, it is just so hard to remember that...I think our first thought is that it's somehow related to the cancer.  God Bless us all...this is a life sentence no matter how we look at it!!!! How we deal with it, therein lies the rub.....
