Breast Cancer again!

  1. cindyvine profile image86
    cindyvineposted 6 years ago

    After a bout with breast cancer and a mastectomy of the right breast on the 19th January 2004, they have now found cancer in my left breast, so that means another mastectomy.  This time though, they can't do the tram flap reconstruction which I'd found such a painful ordeal the last time.
    So my request is this, on the 11th February, which is the date of my surgery, please where somethink pink to show your support for those who have been inflicted by breast cancer.
    Thanks,
    Cindy

    Imagine yourself being carried on a wave of good wishes - and think of Mark Knowles in pink.

    So sorry to hear that news Cindy, but I'm sure that you will get through this and soldier on successfully, like the champ that you are. 
    I will also be thinking of you on the day... and unlike Mark, I will get my own stains out of my Pink Shirt... All The Best.. You Take Care Mate! smile

        big_smile I've found that if you simply use your hands, cold water (and maybe Pink or Yellow Gloves) and a good stain remover - you can get stains out without the need for:
        - a wife
        - a wife's permission
        - a washing machine
        - an excuse

        lol

    Thanks guys!  The bonus will be I'll be off work for 5 weeks, so can write some hubs!
    At least this time I'll have family and friends around me.  Last time, was just my kids and I. 
    Mark - don't let Pearldiver try and talk you into doing your own washing!  It's a horrible time-consuming job!  But he's a kiwi and the men there enjoy working in the house!

    Cindy--I will for sure wear pink on the 11th...

    My mother had this done when she was in her 30's, and is now healthier at 70 than I am, lol...

    Sending best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery--I'm so glad you'll be surrounded by family! smile

    I'm sure sorry to hear you're heading back into the ring Cindy. Here's to your rapid recovery and some more great hubs whilst you're feet are kept off the floor.

    And yes - I'll wear my pink sweater. Just so you know ... I look horrible in pink but for your good health and breast cancer awareness I'll spend the day listening to folks saying 'you soooooo don't suit pink' smile

    As for the guys waffling on about their laundering prowess - whutever wink

    Thanks for the thoughts, felt quite down yesterday, thinking they're slowly burying me bit by bit.  First the right breasdt, then the thyroid and now the left breast.  But read this thread again and felt much better!

      Hi Cindy, Hope all went well with your surgery yesterday. My sister had a mastectomy three years ago and appears to be doing well. She had chemo and radiation, but elected to not have reconstruction. My thoughts are with you and I hope all goes well for you.

  23. frogdropping profile image86
    frogdroppingposted 5 years ago

    Same here too Cindy. I wore my pink sweater all day (looked a pickle in it too but hey ho) and did think about you and how you were doing. Plus I had to explain a couple of times why I was wearing it - it's a little ... small hmm

    Lots and lots of happy, huggy vibes and I hope - like many other Hubbers - that you're soon back to normal. Bestest, biggest wishes - get well soon smile

    Hey ya Cindy... Many thoughts of you and hope you have done well at this stop on your journey to greatness. The path is timeless and well traveled by many special people, just like you. When you look closely you can see that from the dust that rises with each step you take. Conserve your strength and store your positivity so that you can draw on it during the desolate stages of this path. You have a long way to go and you will need a smile every day to make sure that you never let the terrain beat you on the hottest days. Be as brave as you can and if you need anymore than that... well, consider this.. we all love you here and you have and continue to be a beacon for many... and that new lawn mower that you had your eye on.... sorry I got it first! big_smile Be Well mate! smile

    She did post up on FB the day after that she was over the op - alive and kinda kicking.

    Look good in pink MK but did you had to do the beret? Had a lol moment. Love the blue polo pony though wink

    I shoulda posted one of me in mine. Could have gone the whole tight sweater comp. I looked ridiculous big_smile

        Puppies squirming to get out the basket. I dress like a baggage. I look (apparently) like I'm always walking a dog and got dressed in the dark.

        Thing is - the above is about right hmm

        A few of my friends call me an Ewok, one or two other's a scarecrow. I love my friends.
