    Tisme I know it is distressing but it can still be something that is quite treatable.
    Is there no treatments available locally? I had mine in a rural area. 
    It is normal to be upset when we first get our results yours sounds like it is a bit of a jumble. 
    Did the GP give you a copy of your results ? 
    You can call the helpline and talk to the lovely Ladies on there ... and they can talk with you about what the results are. 

    You just need to let NDIS know you are going to need more supports for your daughter as you are needing treatments. 

    Breathe...... let it out Breathe and let it out ....

    Which Hospital have you been referred to ? 

  • tismetisme Member Posts: 103
    My GP is sending to my local hospital specialist clinics.  there is a place about 30 to 45 min drive from here that can do public chemo and such it is a screw up with Breast screen and they wont tell me , yet Im the patient

    what a fun day ……… not , well gp said the report said cancer but …………..  that was 7am this morning , bout an hour ago I got a ph. call from him saying that he had just gotten a letter from breast screen saying it was low grade cancer. breast screen should  refer me to my local hospital for surgery etc if  I haven't heard from them in a week let them know .  just now I got a ph. call from breast screen one of the areas they tested is ok they other shows low grade but they sent it to the sunshine coast hospital for further testing , then on to Royal Brisbane Hospital , still waiting for their results .  either way I will have to have it removed.     sheesh im exhausted.  might drive the nieghours crazy with my music later .  ((((((((( and strength ))))))))))) to all who need it you lot sure deserve it

    Breathe and remember we are here to listen and support.

    I'm still here , now the wait to see a surgeon at the local hospital.  my sample was sent to 2 different laboratories. not including breast screen itself.  Now the other breast is sore , actually it was after the mammograms  its a lot bigger than the right side but no one can tell me why.   might go talk to my gp tomorrow, he prolly thinks I'm being paranoid or something but id rather be a healthy hypochondriac than a sick or dead fool.   and with what's gone on the last few months I think I'm entitled

    Now I like that idea,  "healthy hypochondriac". Me too. Took me 18 months of temper tantrums (imagine that - from a 67 year old 'lady'), insistence and  standing my ground to finally be given an appointment with a respiratory physician. 

    How I wish I could find that idiot doctor, who was at our town hospital some 18 months ago, who told me that I had "emotional asthma, because I had treatment for BC," just to stick it up him.

    Unfortunately he was a another Fly In Fly Out doctor. Definitely a seagull that one - you know - fly in, s**t all over us locals,  then fly out.

    like a doctor who told me the pain I was feeling was indigestion  then all in my mind , turned out to be gallstones
