I have had a call back from Breast Screening SA -ultrasound and biopsy yesterday and have to wait until Friday for results.
As an RN, I am freaking out - How to get through the next two nights and days??
Hi Jenjill, I remember waiting for my husband's test results- it was horrible! I think most people on this forum would agree that waiting for test results is one of the hardest parts. All I can say is take it one hour at a time. Try and keep yourself occupied if you can. And know that we're all here for you whatever happens. Sending big hugs, Emily.

Hello , I am waiting an extra 2 weeks for a physical examination from my oncologist because she is on holidays , then I will have to wait 6 weeks for a scan. I am so used to waiting now though. I admit that I am on medication for anxiety however it is still one day at a time. I did find for me though that I do dwell on the worst outcome rather than hoping for the best and then hoping to be proved wrong. I think initial shock is worst though. I walked around for days in disbelief and shock. Probably all you can do is try to soldier on.
I too tend to imagine worst case scenario in most things. But even if you generally don't, cancer has the power to take you there. I reckon there is no more loaded word than cancer but I did not feel this until I was diagnosed. It just has so many connotations and fears attached to it even though some may never apply in every situation. Personally becoming bald really freaked me out as I look terrible in hats etc. As it turns out chemo was never going to be an option as it isn't effective with my kind of cancer anyway. So I got surgery which scares the hell out of me on the day but then you get knocked out and I do like Midazalam.
Good luck everyone with whatever occurs and try not to scare the pants off yourself!
