    I had a doctor who insisted I wasn’t pregnant and wouldn’t even do the test. Eight months later (two weeks overdue) my beautiful first baby was born. Yep, some doctors need a refresher course.

    Unbelievable ego, stubborn stupidity and wilful gendered blindness. Makes me so angry.

    that is good you have appointment next week Tisme... 

    she will need to process it and its ok for her to take time to process it. 

    Try to do what you enjoy before seeing the surgeon

    Tisme I am sure there would be community transport you would be eligible for this service while going through BC treatment.

    Hello @tisme sending you a private message
  • tismetisme Member Posts: 139
    had a visit from a cancer support , she read my diagnosis and mentioned that it was likely  I would have the breast removed, I knew it was possible having dreamed about telling the surgeon that if he was going to take one he should take both ( less chance of that spreading and so I wouldn't look lopsided even with prosthesis which I cant afford anyway. then I discover daughter needs a root canal, and 6 fillings.  cant afford that.  seems the dental clinic has wiped the 5 years we have been waiting and according to their records we have been on the list 18 months  ive also started having bouts of tachycardia again,  I know its stress .  daughter is suffering stress attacks too now
