Cathsin glad all went well yesterday.
Mamadeacs hope overnight in casa NHS has bought some of those numbers down and you’re on the up this am.
For all those having chemo this week - hope it all goes well for you ladies wirhout too many S/E's or hiccups! Also to those ladies having lines and ports fitted - hope those go well too.
Camilla - dont feel guilty about fish n chips - Ive had them twice every chemo session and loved them ....nice and tasty 😉
I had 4th EC on Friday and am on 5 GCSF injections each cycle now so thankfully last one tomorrow. New S/E for me this cycle - night sweats!!! Not sure if temporary menopause (Im 39) or GCSF injections...see if they stop after last injection tomorrow. They're waking me up every hour so lucky if I get 5hrs sleep which is contributing to me being fatigued all day.
Stay strong ladies 💪💪
Cathsin, brave girl how did the line go?
am going for a port myself soon...saw the n.spec about it today...I too am nervous.
but I hope yours went well?
On my goodness girls, I’ve had friends over for the weekend and not checked in and you’re all having such awful times,
My Dad died 12 months ago and I don’t think I’ve really dealt with it even now. You are bound to be feeling sad and emotional you’re dealing with a really horrible time for your own health and the loss of close family who have always been there to hold your hand, cheerlead and advise is heartbreaking.
Be brave or cry how you handle it all is so personal and there are no rights or wrongs.
i send you all love, hugs courage and bravery for the difficult days and make sure you tray yourselves to something lovely even if it’s only a posh lip balm.
thinking of you all.
Ladies, can anyone help me please?
have just nearly finished my week off (10 days since last dose)😥😥after 1st cycle of taxol and my fingers are still Very sore and numb at the tips, I’m already on a reduced dose, I don’t recall this 17 years ago on Docetaxel I know about udderly smooth, but has any new drug or cream come out that helps.
Also feel vaguely nauseous all the time. Maybe I’m far too long in the tooth to be doing thisxx
love to all of you
Lots of love to you mammadeauks.
yes, I understand how sad you are feeling for some of us old hands...but there is a saying ‘never say die’ and as an old hand, yes I do get sad sometimes, but it’s so important to have hope...a friend Who is still thriving wellish was given two months to lives about four months ago...so see what can happen......?
sosorry about mum and dad, it really is a very hard knock for you....and may be affecting you much more than you realise...take special care of yourself and try hard not to use up loads of energy for all those other ladiesxxx
Sorry to hear you've had such a tough time Mamadeacs but pull on the stremgth of your husband and sons.
I lost my mum to cancer 22 years ago when I was just 17 and its like Im on 2 journeys at the minute with all the past of my mum's cancer catching up with me. She had lung and secondary brain cancer and passed within 4 months of initial diagnosis.
I had 4th round of EC yesterday after choosing not to swap to Docetaxel and back on full dose steroids. Usial S/E's of severe nausea and really tired. Had a couple of hot sweats as well - wonder if Im becoming peri-menopausal now 😕 Am having Filgrastim (immune injections) for every cycle now as a precautionary measure according to chemo assessment worker.
My vitamin D levels have also come back as extremely low so on tablets for that too to add to my chemo cocktail.
Sending all you lovely ladies a big hug - the final chemo goal post is getting closer!!
