Sorry to but in on your thread I started chemo in June but started reading your thread some weeks ago to see how you transitioned from fec to tax. Have been hooked on your thread ever since feel like I know you all !
Anyway just wanted to post to the ladies who are worried about surgery in next few days, I had mastectomy last year , DIEP reconstruction in March this year when they found more cancer so had ANC 6 weeks after recon.
The mastectomy was the most straightforward and believe me a total doddle compared to all you have gone through with chemo.. I only took paracetamol for a couple of days for pain relief and at least every day that passes you are healing and getting stronger (with no return visit in 21 days.!!)
Hope all goes well and thankyou to all you lovely ladies on here you are an inspiration
I have completed 5/20 Rad sessions and so far so good, they said not to expect any se's until after the first week, so we will see. Two appointments today, so lets hope the timings turn out OK, its always a worry, 12.00 radiotherapy and 2pm endocrinology to talk about the results of the scan, so no work today it would be pointless, I swapped my day off intead.
Rain, Rain and more rain in London over the bank holiday what a shame, my daughter is staying with me for a week before her son goes back to school and it was her birthday on Monday, the rain scuppered our plans but we still went out for a lovely Thai meal and had a yummy devils food cake made at the Humming Bird bakery, which by the way we are still plowing through as there was only four of us, we put a slice in the freezer for her to take home to her other half, he has a particularly sweet tooth. I like the idea of an after treatment treat to aim for, I will have a think about that one..... Have a good day all, it at leat looks like a dry one. x Cassie
