What now?

I rang to make an appointment with my local doctor today. The receptionist said there were no appointments until next week which didn't surprise me, but when I mentioned what my problem was there was a sudden cancellation this very afternoon! I guess everything has its up side.

I have a lump in my left breast. Sigh.

The breast clinic the doctor referred me to has an 8 week waiting list. I will try another clinic tomorrow to see if they can get me in any earlier. I don't want to wait 8 weeks.

It's probably a cyst. Most lumps are benign cysts. I know that. But for fucks sake! Cysts in my ovaries, cysts in my breast. Is any part of my body any good? I hope this stupid headache behind my eye is a tumor, so we can just get it over with already.

Should I cancel this cycle? Would it make any difference?

Shit. I hope you can get into a clinic asap and it's nothing to worry about. Take care.

Oh no, I'm so sorry. It's just one thing after another. I have fibrocystic breasts and I swear they react to the IVF drugs and these lumps then always give me scares. I pray it is benign. I honestly don't know if I would cancel my cycle. xo

OMG, I can't believe it! It just never ends, does it? I'm sorry you have to go through this. But you are right, most cysts are benign, and it's probably nothing. I still wish you didn't have to go through it.

Crap ! I hope you get in and have it looked at sooner rather than later.

Same thing happened to me last year. Miscarried at 8 weeks and found I had a lump in my breast 2 weeks later. I got it checked out and it was only a cyst which is apparently very common with IVF patients due to all the drugs.

If I were you I would cancel my cycle. I really believe you need to be in a good state of mind to conceive.

Oh no! Hoping you are able to get into the clinic asap and that it is nothing but cysts like you think. Hugs to you...I am sorry you have to go through this.

Eight weeks!!!?

That's soooo useless.

This is what I would do (but, I'm not you of course).

1. Personally, I wouldn't cancel the cycle, time is scarce.

2. I would ring my doctor and tell him that he has to do something about getting you in somewhere earlier ... eight weeks!!?

And of course, I am sure it is nothing. But you just don't need the stress right now.

Have a glass of wine or get out a punch bag or something else to kick the sh*t out of. Blimey mate.

Oh, shit. It better bloody well be benign. Fucks sake. Hope you're holding up ok. I hope you don't have to cancel your cycle?


Thinking of you XOXOX

I have to think it's nothing serious otherwise they would be moving heaven and earth to get you seen. I know you're anxious. Perhaps employ some guerilla tactics to bully them into getting you in...phone calls every hour? Emails? Everything close of getting a cease and desist.
