Thank you for this it makes me feel much better 🙂 I guess it’s more the fear of the unknown. Xx

Re: Chemo starting 9th April

Sorry Bonnie , this posted before I finished!   I found that the things I was worried about didn’t bother me at all but I hit hard by things that hadn’t even crossed my mind ( I ended up with peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet, a blood clot in my arm and a ventricular ectopic heart beat .....none of which even crossed my mind to start off with)..... so I would go with the flow...and  think positive....you may get very few side effects at all....and if you do....shout out to your team as soon as....and they will get you sorted.

good luck🍀🍀

Chemo starting 9th April

Hi all

I am starting chemo on 9th April and ngl I am not looking forward to it. I have had a right sided mastectomy and AC and recovered well from it. 
I have braced myself for the long road ahead and although I am ready for most side effects the one that fills me with dread is the sickness. I am usually fit and active and the thought of being or feeling ill all the time scares me. Any tips for coping with the sickness side of things?
