I'm wondering how many West Coast Gals we currently have on here. It makes it a little easier to compare notes as our health-care is provincial. Would be nice to share tips and such to each other as we wade though the health-care Bureaucracy.

I'm in Richmond BC (a part of the Vancouver Lower Mainland) and the majority of my treatment has been at Vancouver General Hospital and Vancouver Cancer Agency.. with a few small surgical procedures done at UBC and my original Lumpectomy at Richmond General. My GP is also in Richmond. Ive been on the BCO boards since 2007 with a few breaks.

Please pipe in even if only to let us know your here Wink

Hi ladies,

I just got my bone scan report, it is negative. When I asked for followups, MO said, I shall back to screening mammography for this, it will be once a year.

Oh my god, my diagnosis was due to six months followup, and it turned out to be stage two already, with one lymph node involved. How can annual checkup early catches recurrence? Recurrence is so brutal.

Will visit family doctor for this.

Hello!

I didn't realize there was a Topic created for us BC folks. I have been writing posts in the November 2019 Chemo Club since, well, November lol. I live in Vernon and have lived here since 2011. I spent most of my life at the coast though but haven't been back in years. I haven't read through all of the posts here but I will spend some time getting to know some of you and your stories. It's unfortunate we meet this way but it's so great we have a site like this one to come to and share our ups and downs.

Take care

Hi Charlie: I am pretty sure there is someone on here who lives in or near Vernon, also who are triple negative. That could be a start and certainly I welcome no matter diagnosis or home base. I was in a September 2013 Chemo group and we evolved into a private Facebook group that still exists.

I also suffered through AC/T and whole breast radiation. Does 3/31/2020 indicate the end of your radiation?

It is really a great site and I happened on it even before my lumpectomy.

Hi Marian- thanks for the information and lovely welcome :) 3/31/2020 was an estimated time for the end of radiation at the time I joined but it sounds like the radiation won't happen until April. It will be 5 days a week for 5 weeks- driving to Kelowna- ugh! Oh well, at least it's in the spring and not now when the roads are icy and wet.

I'm in a dark place. I've had a lingering cough since early December. Saw the dr this week & she said oh it's probably nothing but let's just do a chest xray. I'd barely got home from the lab when my dr called to say that they don't like the xray and need me to have a chest CT. It's booked for this upcoming Thurs. Dr was very vague about the xray and said let's wait for the ct results.
I have a bad feeling about all this. Everyone jumping on it fast and while I guess it's possible it's still something else (like I don't know what? TB? fungal pneumonia? I'd take either of those), the simplest answer is most likely :( I'm sad now

Aw Moth. So sorry you are having to deal with this scare. I am sure it isn't helping to stay focused on school. About 3 years ago I had a persistent cough and xray showed nodules and atelectasis. I was so worried that when I was leaving the radiology dept I couldn't find my car keys. I went back up to my NPs office to see if I had left them there. I finally went with my extra set back to my car and the keys were in the ignition with the car running (about an hour). I wasn't aware of how worried I was until then.

NP prescribed antibiotics and I went back a week or so later and things were mostly cleared up. Recently I had a CT Scan (cardiac) and it showed I had 3 and 5 mm nodules but they didn't seem worried.

That long drawn out story was not to minimize what you are going through but to convince myself that you too will be ok. Please keep us up to date.

Moth - I am in the exact same boat as you - felt wretched last weekend with weird tightness in my chest and lots of coughing. Went for chest x-ray and they said there is opacity in my left lung - I had a CT scan done on Thursday - it is terrifying. I know what kind of bad feelings you will be having - me too - now the waiting starts again. So sorry you have to go through this - it is not easy.

Moth, I am so sorry to hear this. Life Dearlife said, your docs seem to be on the ball, and that's a good thing. I want to spout off all sorts of things that sound reassuring. But I know that when you are where you are, feeling like you might be dragged in front of the firing squad again, that 'comforting' things are just annoyances and perhaps false hope. I DO hope this is nothing. SOmething stupid, like an allergy. Or that rotten bad cough that is going around (Hub coughed for almost 8 weeks before finally getting antibiotics, but it was NASTY!). Even though you know all this... you are still in that dark place. We all know that place. I hope with you that this is just medical conscientiousness and not anything more. Hugs.

I live in Lake Country , half way between Kelowna and Vernon. I had a double mastectomy Jan 21 for ILC, ER+/PR+, HER2 neg. Both right and left breast had cancer, the right had two lumps.One out 4 sentinel nodes as well, according to surgeon. Don't know next steps, as have not been contacted by Cancer Clinic yet.

Staples are out, one drain to go.

I would be interested in your experience with the Kelowna cancer clinic Charliebug. My surgeon is away next week, and am really hoping I hear from them before he gets back. I would like to find out next steps.

Moth, that f**king waiting game again is so rough. I know that saying they are on it is good but waiting for the CT Thursday then waiting for the results is not good nor fun. I do hope they rush the results of the CT. School has to keep you busy which is better than laying around but I know the head game too. I will be waiting and hoping for pneumonia!

Neamster, welcome to our thread no matter the reason. It has been a godsend for so many of us and I hope we can be of help now and as you move on through the process. Often it takes up to three weeks for pathology and those were the hardest weeks for me. I did not get an appointment with the cancer agency (Vancouver then) until after pathology but every cancer agency is different.

Hi Neamster! I am so sorry you're going through this. I hope you're healing well from your surgery. The cancer clinic I go to is at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. To say the staff there are amazing would be an understatement. I don't look forward to chemo itself but I actually enjoy my time at the clinic if that makes sense.

Waiting to hear about next steps is so hard. I hope you hear from someone soon. I found that I was either waiting for news or inundated with calls for appointments before my treatment started. It was a lot to handle for sure. You are in good hands with your cancer team though. I am thoroughly impressed with the treatment I've received so far.

You can do this!

Neamster, I was in Kelowna, stayed at the lodge for my radiation treatment. I was so impressed with the way that place functions. As I told CharlieBug, best medical treatment I've ever received. Those people were a well oiled machine. 

The waits we are routinely subject to are grueling. If you have waited a month and not heard anything, call them. Don't sit on it. Pick up that phone and say' hello, I was just wondering where things are at.'  I had to do that and discovered that I had fallen through some bookkeeping crack. Had I not made a call, I'd still be waiting! At times you might have to be your own advocate so don't be shy. Make that call. This is your health we're talking about!
