Ha,that'll teach me to gloat!
After my thread yesterday blowing my trumpet that I was recovering well I got home yesterday to a letter from the hospital. My routine blood tests last month have shown markers again, it's almost 3 years since my last operation as a result of markers in my bloods.
This means I now have to go for an ultrasound and needle biopsies from my neck to determine if the markers actually represent cancer cells again.
The ultrasound appointment falls on the same day as my next scan for my baby's growth, fantastic timing!
Bloody disease, you just get on a roll then it pops up to remind you that it's still there!
Hey ho, guess I shouldn't have spoken too soon!:(

Claire, you poor thing! I am so sorry to hear the news. You can still blow your own trumpet as you have a lot to blow it about!! Stay strong in the knowledge that you've recovered once and your soon to be new addition proves that, and you can do it again!

Aww Claire, just regard this as a blip along the highway to health, don't give it the satisfaction of being anything more than that, you know you can get through this if it has returned, you've done it before. good luck, take care and stay strong. xx

Thanks everyone, it may not even be that serious yet. Pregnancy accelerates tumour growth and in some ways it's a good thing if it's brought to the surface quicker than normal. Surgery is the only option left for me but I always knew it was possible I would need more, hopefully it'll turn out to be nothing. I'm booked in for the biopsies on 3rd Aug, will keep you posted.
I'm not worried, more worried about giving birth to be honest! I know what to expect with the cancer but my first baby was born by C section so I have no idea what to expect with this one!

Hi Claire, best wishes from me too. I hope it does turn out to be nothing, but if you have to fight it again, I am sure you will beat it again.

It was lovely to meet you and your family a few weeks ago, hope to see you on your next visit.

Stay strong. We've all got everything crossed for you.

(And as Pebble says, no you weren't gloating).

So sorry to hear.

Keep strong and keep the great perspective you already have since pregnancy hormones have detected this restart earlier than otherwise.

keep us all informed.

Hi,

Good Luck Claire.

My friend found out she had cancer in her kidney-by the time they found it she had virtually no kidney left-they operated to remove it then she had the most gruelling chemotherapy.

Two years later she had a lump in her breast which turned out to be cancerous-but not a secondary tumour-a second primary, it was a very aggressive type of cancer. She had the breast removed and again she had to undergo chemotherapy treatment.

A year later the doctors told her that she had a one in ten chance of developing cancer in her remaining breast-so she had a further mastectomy.

It's been over twelve years now with no more tumours-which proves it can be beaten.

Try to stay strong and positive-not easy at times I'm sure. Many people will be praying for you.

Claire: yes you are so correct........

Are you having your second baby by c-section also? Concentrate on the happy event. have you your nursery all ready?

just you hang in there and stay strong.
