Diary of my Left Breast: Results. Coffee. Breathe.


Breathe by Lauren on Flickr

Monday (28/10/13) was results day.

All is good.  A cluster of cysts, no malignant cells.

Now I can breathe.

Both my Doctor and my Naturopath have indicated that fibrocystic breast changes are what’s happening with me at the moment.  Not all that uncommon, but I’m to keep a careful eye on myself and head back asap if I find lumps that I don’t like the feel of.

Also my costochondritis – an inflammation of the cartilage that connects the ribs to the breastbone – has flared up again, which accounts for why I’ve been so sore.  Pain meds, heat and gentle stretching are the treatment here.

Another breath of relief.

I want to thank everyone who sent me love, well wishes and support over this last week.  It is so very much appreciated, and helped me through the week.  There will be more check-ups to come, but unless anything life-changing comes about, I think I’ll put this issue to rest.

Just keep an eye on yourself.  If you find a lump in your breast, get it checked out.  Better to err on the side of caution, and quiet those demons dancing through your brain.  And if you need a friend, let me know.

With love, Txo

    So pleased to read this news Tash :-)What a relief that news must have been. Your the second woman I know of in the last week who has a cluster of cysts. Hugs, because I am not sure what more I can say except I am so happy that this is a good result.

      Thank you Janine.
      There have been a couple of us in my circle of friends lately too. I wonder if it is just because we’re all of an age where our bodies are starting to change again, or if it is something else.
      Needless to say, there is much happiness and relief here too.
      Thank you for yours.
