Re: July 2017

Haha. Ella sounds absolutely lovely. Good that’s she’s into decorating so soon. 😂

It’s rubbish when you can’t handle them on your own for whatever reason. I feel like I talk about our miles all the time but never our gorgeous little Rosalind, his baby sister. The most I could have her on my own is a cpl of hours. I just never know when that absolute drug exhaustion is going to kick in. Not that I nap, but I just worry I won’t be able to give her the attention she needs. When she’s a bit bigger it should be better.
I feel great on the new drug. Better than on the letrozole and palbociclib. Unfortunately, I’d already had my zoladex injection for the month before I got my results. Gutted as it means I’m having hot flushes for bot all.
I’ve got a feeling this drug is going to work. 👍
I’m sitting waiting for my tree to arrive. 8ft was the biggest I could find. I don’t care if the neighbours call me, it’s going up tonight. 😀😀😀
Enjoy your time with Ella. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Morning ladies.
Kimi, good to hear from you. If your docs say your pains aren’t bc related then I’d believe them. Pointless wasting time worrying if you shouldn’t be. I know it’s easier said than done. Our brains go into overdrive and most aches and pains turn out to be nothing. I don’t blame you for trying to get on with your life and put bc behind you. I wish I could.
The headaches and woozy sound like anxiety. I’ve always suffered from it and get the same symptoms. Long before bc was on the scene.

Anyway, I’ve got my grandson’s here so I best rush off. He’s very demanding. 😀
Hugs to you all ladies. Here’s hoping the weather improves. It feels like we’ve had 40 days and nights of rain. 😳 xxx

Kimmi
Good luck at the doctors tomorrow. Hope it is useful and brings you some peace of mind.
My feet are still very painful. I have to limit my walking a bit which is annoying when I’m trying to lose weight for my Diep/muscle fix op. I have orthotics from podiatrist now but they are difficult to fit in shoes and very uncomfortable.
It is so hard to lose weight on letrozole. I’m keeping to around 1200 cals a day and eating healthy stuff but hardly losing anything.

Hiya lovely to hear from you but sorry you have been sffering with anxiety.  Sending you loads of hugs for your apt tomorrow, I am sure that your friends and OH are right if they were concerned they would have you in.

 

I am doing well, at the Docs tomorrow for my six week (although it is 7) post op check up and with any luck she will give me a fit note to start back to work in December.  I will only be doing 3 hours a day but it is a start, I have to say I am ready to go back and get some normality/routine, lets hope when i go back I wont regret it!!

 

Sending you huggles

Re: July 2017

Hi Lovely Ladies

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been in contact, I’m struggling with anxiety & am trying to get on with my life, but with all the aches & pains etc I’m not succeeding really.  Got an appointment with GP on Weds as I contacted my BC nurse who spoke with Oncologist about rib/liver pain, reply was “ not BC related, contact your GP”, although before speaking to Onc BC nurse thought I’d be having a scan, let’s hope I’m worrying unnecessarily! I’m also getting headaches and feel “woozy”, do feel a bit cast adrift if I’m honest, but friends & OH tell me they would be keeping an eye on me if they thought it necessary, again, let’s hope they’re right. Enough about me, I’m so sorry to hear of your continuing problems, this BC lark is so **bleep** you’d think after all we’ve been through there would be some peace by now, but our strength still continues to be challenged.

Sending you loads of love & luck Angela, I hope your appointment with Onc brings you a plan of action. Michelle, good luck with your Op’, all procedures come with scary warnings, none of us would go ahead with anything if we didn’t have faith in our surgeons, hope it brings you some relief.

Tatyana, glad your treatment is not too bad to tolerate and hope it’s finished soon, and good news on the sugar front, I’ll be getting the chocolate out soon, not so keen on mince pies!

Hope you’re feeling better Carole, you don’t need that do you, my foot has only improved slightly, I bought my own insoles and am now wearing very unattractive trainers with them in, but they do help. Hope you get your Op’ date soon.

Shi & Helena, hope your both doing well, not spending too much on the shopping Shi!!

Sending you all lots of love and hand holding, thank you as always for being there “Booby Friends”.

Re: July 2017

Angela re second opinions my onc who was the speaker at my where now course at Maggies told us during his talk it is always good to be a pest so to speak and if you feel your not happy with anything to go for a second opinion!!! He is excellent i put my trust in him and reseearched him when assigned him nothing is too small for him if you are worried about stuff he will see you in his following clinic when i had my problems with chemo he insisted he wasn't going to throw the towel in and allowed me to go ahead on the very expensive Abraxane as i was TN abd wanted the best for me when i have asked what would i do if my cancer came back and i can't have the drugs due to being allergic and he insisted there would always be a drug there for me in his cupboard if i needed it he is head of oncology in my hospital maybe you could look him up???
Anyway i don't blame you for doing this yes you trust your onc but to be honest im like you and would do everything in my power to get the very best as that is what you deserve, you are very strong Angela and im sure youv do whatever you have to do and if that mwans a second opinion so be it 👍
Yes the power of this forum is fantastic you ladies were more supportive when i needed over some i have known for many years not their fault they just didn't get it bug higs to you and yours 💖💪

Re: July 2017

Hey ladies.
Thank you so much for my gold hot pants. Hubby has had the day off today and read a few of your messages. Yous have had him in tears. Now he realises the power of our online friendship. 😍 I’m so lucky. Xxx
Carole, thank you for trying to gather info for me on Facebook. I really appreciate it. My oncologist says my nets have grown that quickly and extensively that for now surgery would be out of the question. 🙁
I asked him about surgery when I was first diagnosed and he said I didn’t need it. 🙄 I think I trust him, but who knows if we’re making the right decisions.
I’m busy asking for 2nd opinions via email to specialists, also on twitter and the American site inspire. I’ve actually just had a reply from the only woman ever to be cured of bc through immunotherapy. So I’m holding out hope. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hi Angela, I’ve asked Emma about her trial and will let you know.
Sorry if I’ve asked before but is it “just” liver secondaries? If so I know of a surgeon who can remove them. He took 15 tumours out of my sisters liver nearly 3 years ago (stage 4 BC) and she is fine now. I think I wrote to you about him a while ago.

I’m ok. I retired 31st October and have had a horrendous cough, sore throat and headache since. Also had tummy problems and usual bad feet etc, so just feeling a bit rough. Nothing to worry about I hope.
Had my CT angiogram last week to check I’m ok for Diep so I’ve got the usual scanxiety, hoping I don’t hear from anyone as they also check for secondaries in liver etc.

Re: July 2017

Angela, so sorry to hear this. There's a very lively thread on here about capecitabine with some lovely ladies and good info, I don't know if you've found it, it's https://forum.breastcancercare.org.uk/t5/Treatments-and-medical-issues/Xeloda-Capecitabine-Your-Top-...
I was on cape myself for a few months but then it stopped working for me, but it's not too hard to tolerate and it's done wonders for some people, so well worth a try.
Hang on in there my dear, you're a fighter if ever there was one. Sending hugs by the shed load.

Re: July 2017

Thanks Helena i wind myself up sometimes not always the best way to deal with things!!!! As Angela says you were there in April when diagnosed for me too and reassured ne back then if i recall aometimes the mind tends to wander!!
Angela hey thanks you are right about fear its horrible isn't it ive only just over a week till app so im sure he will sort me out!!
Anyway enough about me!!! Angela i hope that you are managing to distract yourself before your appointment tomorrow keep thinking about Christmas thats what I'll be doing i don't think the rain helps it kind of makes us abit house bound i go crazy when im not distracted!!!!!
Its my mams birthday tomorrow so im going to spend the night with her watch a film and get a Chinese 👍 she feels funny about her birthday since we lost dad don't blame her really it must be hard he always spoiled her rotten 💖
Its his birthday soon would have been 70 💖
I have neen trying to decide whether or not to get a real tree this year too Angela mine is on its last legs literally (one of them has to be gaffer taped on) it's a lovely tree but nearly as old as my youngest!!!! Im just worried I'll finish a real one off!!!

Re: July 2017

Nice to hear from you Helena. I’ll never forget how you helped scrape me up from the floor last April when I was diagnosed with my primary. Thanks for that. 😀

Michelle, please don’t beat yourself up about being scared. Who wouldn’t be.
Cancer does a lot of things but it doesn’t make you bulletproof from future fear. Bad news is still bad news, fear is still fear. Just remember that your grit and determination will see you through your recovery once it’s done and dusted. And you’ll no longer have to live your life worrying that one wrong move could have terrible consequences. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hi Tatanya im pleased to hear that they aee putting you on a different regime of treatment im sure the rads will zap the 💩 out of it x i was thinking about you this morning and had everything crossed for you im pleased your lungs are stable the palitaxel is that the weekly one i remember a lady i was having treatment along side with was on that and she coped really well with it, sending a 💃💃💃💃💃💃💃 for your bloods so they behave for you lovely news about your freind x
Angela im sending you the positive vibes for Friday its awful waiting for any kind of results so i wish you the very best for your appointment and will be asking the Angels to look after you,
i sincerely wish you girls were not having to go through any of this its so unfair and your positivity and relisliance is fantastic your really are troupers x i was giving myself a check in regards to my neck and impending op after an absolutely rediculous meltdown last week i need to remember that having dealt with bc that anything aside from cancer should be something to be thankful for but i wish the doctor hadn't scared me about this op but in hindsight i know i need to have it im living on a very weak tight rope and accident or fall could mean immediate emergency surgery, if can feel my arms getting more weakness i keep dropping things and wake up with dead arms so when i see him on 3rd i will be getting my date for surgery its the thought of having pins and scaffold in my skull to keep spine in place what put the 💩 up me although he has asurred me he has not mucked up yet he is uo there with the best in country for neurosurgery 😨 i looked him up haha trust me im a bloody liability haha xxx
Missa if you are reading 👭 thinking about you Keep 💪 girls youve got this 👭👍💖♀️
Shi you keep sparkling that tree sounds lovely and Angela is right a huge tree the bigger the better i fancy going rustic with mine with cinnamon sticks pine cones dried oranges birds the whole shibang and of course lots of lights but i think i might regret jt after i start buying aren't the expensive now i haven't bought any decs for a few years but i have changed my living room and fancy a change with the tree also need a stocking for Ella but haven't found one i like yet x

Re: July 2017

Hopefully if it’s a small dose the infusion won’t take too long either. I hope the SEs are very manageable and you can enjoy Xmas without any drama.

I’m a bit late to the baking game this year too. Hubby is at work the second weekend of next month so I’m going to make a very late Xmas cake. It might not taste as good but at least the house will smell wonderful for a few hours. 😀

Re: July 2017

Hi Angela,
Paclitaxel is a weekly infusion for 3weeks, then you get week 4 off. So it's a bind, but the idea is that the SEs are more manageable because it's a small dose each time. We'll see! Meanwhile I might join you in a mince pie! Usually make my own but haven't got around to anything like that yet.
I'll be thinking about you on Friday. Yes the waiting is horrible.xxx

Re: July 2017

On a brighter note tatyana. Cancer research have released a video stating cutting out sugar does not help treat cancer. The only way cutting down sugar can help is if you’re overweight.
For now, that’s all the advice I need to treat myself to a couple of mini sweet mince pies with a cuppa. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hi tatyana.
Yes , a mixed bag. Here’s hoping this new drug will work better and the rads do there job. 🤞🤞🤞🤞
The fact that your lungs are stable is very good news.
How do you take paclitaxol?
I really hope there’s a trial for you. If palbociclib isn’t working for me I definitely want a trial if there is one.
I think we should all have a consultation at a teaching hospital.


I’ve worked out the pain on my rib feels like a vein or cartilage rather than the bones. 🙄 goodness knows what sort of treats are going on there.

Re: July 2017

Afternoon ladies.
Good news that your friend doesn’t have to join us Tatyana. 👍 my results are Friday. 😳😳😳
Dreading it. I HATE sitting in that waiting room and the journey to the hospital is terrible isn’t it. I wish he’d just ring me. If I’m getting devastating news I’d rather have it in the comfort of my own home.

Your musical tree sounds lovely Shi. I’ve got a musical fairground. Its huge. We bought it from the range last year. I can’t wait to get it out again. Everything’s going up on the 1st. I’m going to buy the biggest real tree I can find. 😀

Re: July 2017

So, scan results were a mixed bag. Lump in left (remaining!) breast has grown a bit. I knew that cos I can feel it. Lungs no change to speak of. Lumps inside centre of chest have grown but not by much. Something in lower back/pelvic area which looks like scarring, so this could mean that there was previously undetected cancer cells there which the chemo has zapped. (Aha, gotcha, you little blighters!)
The onc doesn't think there's any point in continuing with gemcarbo because my bloods have struggled, with repeated dose reductions and delays, so he wants to try me on paclitaxel.

But meanwhile he wants to try a 5-day course of rads localised to the breast lump, to try and shrink that. So it's rads planning on Tues, treatment asap, then aim to start paclitaxel at end of Dec so I get some recovery time in between.
As plans go, it makes sense. He's very sympathetic about the neck/chest pain and dodgy breathing, but hopes we can keep that under control in the meantime. Oh, and he's going to consult colleagues at the nearest teaching hospital to see if they have any trials that might be suitable.
I do feel better now there's a plan, even though it's all sht anyway and plans have a habit of getting messed up, don't they!
Shi, I'd love to see your house full of sparkly trees! Love to Mishy, Carole, Angela and anyone else who drops by!xxx

Re: July 2017

Thanks Angela, it means a lot! I'll let you know how it goes. Feeling quite cheerful today because one of my dearest friends who had BC four years ago has just had the results of her latest mammogram, all is well, they don't want to see her for a year, and after that she goes back to the routine 3-yearly mammogram. I'm so chuffed! She and her partner have been massively supportive to me and hubby, they are gems!

Re: July 2017

Morning Michelle. Thanks for the positive vibes. 😀
My right boob was also the bad egg. I’ve had rib pain before thanks to radio, just wiping myself out as this is a new pain. 🙄 roll on next Friday. I hate this waiting lark.
It’s only natural for you to be worried about a big op like that. Give yourself plenty of time to weigh up the pros and cons. I wish things could be just ‘normal’ for a while for all of us.
I’m happy Christmas is just around the corner. A bit of distraction will do the world of good.
Enjoy your garden. I wouldn’t know where to start with mine at the minute. It’s the reason we bought the house as it’s so beautiful. Really like a mini park. The problem is, I’m no Charlie Dimmock so its just completely overwhelming. I have to leave most of it to hubby. Maybe I should sign up for a gardening class. 🤔 I think I’d enjoy that. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Tatanya enjoy Sussex as Angela says its always best to take advantage of a situation like this!!!! A nice distraction before the 21st too which i will be sending you my very best postive vibes and a 👭
Angela if its any reasurrance at all my ribs pain in the lower quadrant on right side (my right boob was the bad egg) i know i get worried its other things thats how onc told me about costochondritis i had a bone scan in Jan, but its natural for you to worry about it especially as you have your appointment Friday but i will be sending you the vibes too and will definitely be thinking of you i really do wish you weren't in this position 👭
I had a rubbish day yesterday after a routine reumotology app in which my neck situation was discussed caught a glimpse on the screen of letter from neuro to doc and was left feeling awful the op is definitely not a walk in the park the awful rare things that can happen, what it entails how long never been as scared as when i was told about the cancer Today i feel alot more positive and have to look at it differently as it could be worse
Today was cold but bright was happy to see the garden is still looking glorious with Autumn colours which normally is waning around this time of year my rose in front is still flowering too!!!
Managed to get a walk in today like to do it daily just being extra careful not to trip up!!!!

Re: July 2017

Good morning ladies.

Shi I bet your trees look gorgeous. I do love a xmas tree. Can’t wait to get mine up. A huge real one this year I think. 😀

Tatyana 🙁 I really feel for you. What a carry on. Why can things not run smoothly for us, even just now and again. It must of been absolutely rubbish to be back in hospital. Have you got your appointment through yet? Mine is next Friday. Absolutely terrified if I’m honest. 😳😳😳
I don’t envy you having to go through the whole horrible build up and prepare twice. I truly hope you get some good news. 🤞🤞🤞
I’ve no idea what’s going on with my ribs but I’m pretty positive it can’t be a good thing. It’s next to my liver so fear monster in overdrive I can imagine me in waiting room for results cowering like a dog at the vet 🙄

How are you Michelle? Xxx

Re: July 2017

Ah Tatanya how frustrating for you being all prepared mentally for your appointment im sorry to hear you ended up in hospital too i hope you are feeling OK after that ordeal im sorry you had geared yourself up for that appointment to have to miss it hopefully under the circumstances you will have another one soon again big hugs and hand holding 💖👭
Angela been thinking about you for today, i hope your scan is over with as quickly as possible never realised scanxiety was a real thing till i jumped on the bc express even though my recent scans were neuro bc they were still the primary reason for having them and the anxiety was there so im sending you my 💖 and 👭 lots and lots of positive vibes coming your way lovely lady

Re: July 2017

Angela, fingers crossed for your scan, and I hope your son's appointment went well. 🍀🍀🍀 Shi, your house is going to be fab this Christmas with sparkly trees in every room!🎄🎄🎄
Wouldn't you know it, having had chemo on Friday (bloods were ok and they didn't mind that I had a cold!), I went and got a bout of nausea on Tuesday and Wednesday. Ended up in A&E on Wednesday, just like the old days, because I couldn't keep anything down, especially not the antisickness pills! So they gave me lots of IV fluids to rehydrate me and some IV antisickness, and my blood results were ok so they sent me home, thank goodness! BUT of course by then I'd missed my oncologist appointment (at a small local hospital with no A&E). So I didn't get my scan results or next treatment plan, and I've just got to wait for another appointment. So frustrating. Hubby and I were both really nervous about this one but had psyched ourselves up, for nothing!
The good news is that the nausea went away and I'm feeling fine now,which is good because we're out for lunch today at a nice restaurant with hubby's cousin and wife who we don't often see but are some of my all-time favourite people!
Love to all you special ladies!🌷🌷🌷
