sorry to hear all all your news, you must have been holding tight to the skin of your pants whilst that all flew by....💜🦋💜🙏
now your new new plan is in place, I hope things become more settled for you. You deserve some respite.
loads of love to you
Dramaminx what a terrible nightmare! I feel for you greatly!
So positive the CT scan was clear and that it's all out now.
Hopefully positive and on track going forward.
Big hugs xx
Sorry to hear of your news Dramaminx but glad to hear that the surgery has gone well and fingers crossed for your CT scan ❤
Stay strong 💪💪
Some people can be insensitive at times wirh their comments but sometimes I think its just a case of they dont know what to say.
I've had amazing support from family and friends especially those friends who have known me the longest and the little thoughtful gifts theyve sent me have perked me up on those down sometimes darker days. 😊
There are also those who i will re-evaluate on my "friends" and "family" list who have pretty much disappeared since my breast cancer diagnosis and subsequent chemo treatment. I prefer to be surrounded by those who have offered support and love during these mad 6 months.
6th and final (hopefully) chemo done for me earlier today and I skipped out of the Oncology Day Unit...and yes I have video proof!! 😉
Sorry to hear about your friend cathsin, lucky she went and got checked though!!
Yeah haha I have been using my eyeliner everyday and filling in the brows now with an eyebrow powder kit, thank goodness it doesnt actually lookn too bad. Oh that is good news that it hasn't changed at all, as you would have expected it to change on chemo if it was anything sinister so fingers crossed. What is micro-ablation?
Yes my lymph biospy op is 12th April so only 2 weeks away now! and then mastectomy the following week on 19th April. I am now really worried about the pathology results and been having dreams about it, need to try and stay calm lol x
Thanks, hopefully a quiet day. lol typical man unicornmummygirl!! do you have anything nexct on the treatment plan?
my eyelashes and eyebrows are very scarce now, so they prob continue to fall out before the start to grow back 😞 x
Oh god cathsin, what a thing for him to come out with! Good to hear you also have surgery date, what kind of surgery are you having? x
Hope everyone is OK and has a good bank holiday weekend!
6th and final chemo for me this afternoon. Mixture of emotions from being nervous to giddy to anxious!!
Good luck with round 6 everyone!
I am the same as you also Camilla, with the lymph node situation, I had 1 swollen node on scans at diagnosis which they biopsied and was positive, but all the others looks normal and no more were tested at that point, so full clearance was always what I thought, but my swollen one has reduced by half back into 'normal' looking region as per scans, so they have decided to do a sentinel node biopsy but remove more than just the sentiel nodes and remove a few more that are up stream from the affected one, if they are all clear and was only the 1 affected, then think its going to be rads to the area instead of clearance, obv if any active cells/others postitive then full clearance will happen the following week with my mastecomy. I am also sporty, play basketball and its my right side & im right handed so I am praying that the chemo has killed what was in that 1 and the others are clear... but if not then I want them gone so will get the lot out.
enjoy time with friends 🙂 x
My chemo 6 is next week and I can't wait for this whole chemo business to be behind me.
After 3 wks I then have a CT scan to see just what the chemo might have achieved. Then it's the chat with the surgeon to see what she is planning. I know that a complete axillary clearance had been in store for me, but, if the cancer in the lymph nodes has now gone, I'm hoping it won't have to be so drastic. It's my left side and I'm left handed and before BC I was playing tennis 3 times a week and swimming regularly, the prospect of poss lymphoedema is miserable.
However, the bottom line is that I will accept what the surgeon thinks best.
Good luck everyone with what the next stage brings.
My husband is away for 3 days now so hopefully I'll catch up with friends as not feeling too bad.
This thread seems to have been quiet of late - I hope everyone is OK and not suffering with too many S/E's!
I've been to the hospital this morning to see the Oncologist ahead of the 6th and final chemo this coming Friday and providing I am still recovering from this viral infection it will go ahead as planned
I did find another lump in the same breast as the removed tumour so asked the Oncologist to have a feel of it. I was sent over for an ultrasound and thankfully the scan showed the lump as not one but 2 cysts side by side so they drained them off - the relief was immense as I've spent the last 5 days fretting about it!
Happy to report that my head hair also seems to be regrowing albeit it fine baby hair - not sure if as a result of reduced chemo dose on cycle 5 but great to know that my hair will regrow!
Hope everyone is OK.
Maybe it has? You could imagine it has...would be a powerful thing to do.
glad you are home and well. Healthy level of neutrafils xx
After having temperature overnight and high heart rate I was at the Oncology Assessent Unit by 8am this morning. Temp kept rising to 38.5°C but after IV antibiotics it started to slowly come down. All full bloods showed everything is fine and Im not neutropenic (maybe that's thanks to GCSF injections), chest xray clear and no bacterial infection shown in bloods. Viral swab done but will take 48hrs for the results.
Sent home at 3pm and to take paracetamol regularly and plenty of fluids and rest. Sinuses are starting to become congested so maybes a cold has been in the making the last couple of days. Need to get it shifted for 6th chemo cycle on 30th March!
So pleased for you Dr BEX l
will miss you..check back on us from time to time.
Much love andhugs
Glad to see some of you coming out the other side! I've got chemo Friday, and next Friday, then (ABW) that's that bit done! Got an MRI scan Easter Monday, then rads planning 17th Apr. I'm semi 'back to work' next week - working from home on some writing! 🙂
Kirsty, great news your ops planned and dates fixed.
I have a CT scan a month after last chemo so don't think any plans will be made until results are known so no speedy op for me.
I think the gcfs injections have kept my neuts on track so have never had that problem.
Good luck to anyone struggling.
