This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

Hi ctmbsikia, Don't be so hard on yourself. This heat wave and being on hormonal therapy is a double whammy. I used to love being outside in all types of weather. Everyone is complaining they can't get things done or they are at the end of line because Covid caused such a backup. Now even with lawn care there isn't enough workers. Can you get in touch with these contractors and ask where you are on their schedule? Maybe, trying to get everything done this year is just too much. Somehow I know your husband would understand.

Thank you flashlight. I am trying to keep busy with other things to compensate. I've already went into hysterics once over this thing, I don't want to do it again. Thing is we are the help. The owners give us the materials. Hubs was the GC on ours and a cousins he built right next door. Now, I'm relying on the family next door, and friends to help finish and you know how that goes. Everyone has an opinion, or they are willing to help, but then are too busy.

My son is really the huge help but he is working double time at the moment. Another farmer has a broken baler so the guy he works for has picked up their slack. I took him dinner the other night last week as he was in a field nearby, so I took a ride with him in the John Deere. Something very peaceful about being out there. Once he's caught up hope to get cranking again at the bay.

I almost spit nails through the phone when the landlords' girlfriend called about the water bill. Once again, I just paid my rent amount for June since the water bill I finally got did not match up with the last 2 months amounts that THEY told me to pay. They get a copy so why are the amounts different? I'll tell you why, because they are stupid people. I don't know if it was here or some other forum I spouted off about the conversation I had with her 2 months ago. This is their issue, yet they continually blame others and treat their tenants like 2nd rate citizens, and I for one, just won't stand for it. I was nice today since I was in the Hallmark store buying a candle so I could go home and RELAX!!!!!! I just wanted to spit though because the end result is I overpaid due to their dumbness!!!

I just found out my cousin has BRCA1 mutation. I always suspected it because of number of cancers in the family in young ages. I asked my doctor 4 years ago to get tested, he agreed but the genetic testing center didn't consider my case high risk because of the family size. Now 4 years later I have cancer and I have been approved to have the test. I am going for my test on Wednesday but hearing the news makes me think my test is most probably positive. I can't shake the thought that I should have gone to a private clinic 4 years ago. I wish I would have.

Right now I am kind of numb. Although I always suspected it but I guess on some unconscious level I always had some hope that it is not the case. Now that hope has vanished.

I was scheduled in December for a scan of my abdomen in June (right before my 6-month check-up) by the urologist who removed my kidney. I saw my oncologist in May for my regular breast follow-up, and she wanted a chest CT to keep an eye on my lung nodules. Her nice staff were able to get the chest CT added on to the abdomen one that was already scheduled. Maybe you could check into that?

I had a neck lipoma removed five years ago. I had a CT years before when it first appeared. My PC couldn't figure out what it was so he sent me to an endocrinologist AFTER I had the scan, and that bird-brain doctor didn't know, either. It got huge, to the point I looked like a bullfrog. I finally saw an ENT, who knew what it was right away and scheduled the surgery. It was so simple; just in the hospital for the morning. I did have to have full anesthesia instead of the lightweight kind because it was pretty close to the jugular and he needed me to be paralyzed for it. That sucker was the size of an egg!

From what the ENT said, lipomas on the back of the neck are common. Mine was nestled under my jaw in the front just a little to one side, which apparently is a weird location.

I tried to explain that no i wasn't.......I just want someone to tell me if one ct will cover the clavicle and chest. I feel like the clavicle IS part of the chest.

I think chest CTs start at the top of the lungs. I have a few lumps I was hoping would be included on mine (mid-neck and upper arm) but nope. At least with the PET scan, it will be base of skull to mid-thigh. Can you get an ultrasound instead?

I'm over due for low dose CT lung screening. Haven't made up my mind if I should call and get an order for one before my next MO appt. or just go see him next month and get it then. Have to do a follow up breast MRI next month too. YUCK! Could do 2 tests same day. And labs. And see the GP end of next month. I really want out of this protocol. My back hurts today. I just paid another $450 to these medical professionals! Currently around $2500 spent, another thousand to go to reach my deductible for the year!

Anyway, if it wasn't for all the knowledge and support I've gotten from here, I would have quit a long time ago. Like right after radiation.! If by sticking it out and facing my white coat fears helps others with this disease, then I'll keep doing it. I do want to turn in my bc tracking device card though! Have a nice night all!

I haven't had a breast MRI since all the diagnostic tests three years ago. I'm glad, because that was the hardest thing I went through that year (except losing my mom), worse than the lumpectomy or having my kidney removed. Good luck on yours!

I think the scans vary depending on how the doctor orders them. The PET scan I had today said "full body" but it was written in the instructions "base of skull to mid-thigh." The PET scan for the other woman there also said "full body" but they told her it would be top of head to mid-thigh. I looked up the one I had two years ago, and it was also "full body" but that one was top of head to feet.

What is going on? My Facebook is suddenly full of ads about cancer treatment and cancer trials and all the pictures of these women. These perfect looking smiling women. With their bright white teeth and smiling faces, perfect lipstick and painted nails. Bright complexions and well coiffed hair. This is how it looks to have breast cancer? Like maybe you've been nominated for some award that you weren't expecting and are demurely accepting your prize, "oh dear me, I am just flushed with honour and so flattered.." (fluttering of eyelashes.) I don't know who those women are. And to my mind they sure as shit DO NOT portray the reality of being told you have breast cancer.

If I made a breast cancer ad it would look a lot different. A woman, slack jawed and hollow eyed, from lack of sleep, would appear. She is not smiling. She has nothing to smile about, she is scared to death. Her mind and soul have gone to dark places waiting for test results, wondering what treatment is going to do to her. Her clothes are rumpled, maybe her shirt is buttoned wrong and her house is a disaster because she really can't focus on much else. If she has, the exertion of it has given her a headache so she has a bottle of aspirin in one hand. In the other she has a bill from her lawyer because she felt it prudent to get her affairs in order, wrote her will and has received the bill from the legal beagle before a treatment plan. We wait for medical news but our lawyers are lightning fast with bills! She is pictured sitting in a park and around her friends meet and kids play but her eyes are glazed and far away because she feels yanked out of her old life and now an alien in her own surroundings, she feels cut off from everyone and everything who act normal while she thinks about dying.  She is at a table with food she cannot eat. She is in bed and her eyes are wide open. Her nails are not painted, they are chewed to the quick. THAT is what cancer looks like in real life and these fucking MADE UP ads that make it look like it's No Big Deal are insulting as hell. Misleading. As if breast cancer is just another day in the life. WRONG! It is the day your life took such a violent shove off course that you are in a whole other universe. 

If anyone managed to be the smiling picture of beatific peace and composure that these women are, well good for you, you have attained a level of evolved spirituality that I cannot hope to reach. But the rest of us, if we find these ads off putting and insultingly glamourized, well, join the club. Who the hell do they hire to write these  ads and what are they attempting to tell the public?

When I had a PET scan the tech said it would cover from my eyes to my thighs. SmileI was only talking about a standard chest CT which includes the clavicles so if KID's concern is on the clavicle then it will show.

Betrayal. thanks I think my dream job at this point would honestly be doing lunch and recess monitoring at one of the local elementary schools--and that is not what I interviewed for recently so I should look into being a lunch lady. What would have horrified me as a job when I was 24 now sounds like the best job (next to be a PT position at my library--which I looked into but am not qualified for as I don't have 2 years of experience working in a library or a degree in library sciences and honestly I don't think I could manage going back to school at this point in life--my ability to process info has been stimied by chemo.

Runor- WHO who, are the ads for? You either need Ibrance or you don't. Are there like well-meaning family members calling and saying Hey Grandma, I was just scrolling FB and I saw an ad for a lady who was opening a yarn shop and it looks like there is a drug for your stage 4 cancer call Ibrance? Have you checked it out? Looks like you'll be cured if you take that. AND also I hate when the same ads say "don't take if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
