Re: July 2017

Happy Monday ladies.

Michelle, what a horrible predicament to be in. I hope you get the answers and reassurance you need to make the right decision. I’d love that coffee. Maybe when my next appointment at the freeman comes through? I have one this week but I’ve got my granddaughter later in the morning.
I’m going to have a look into the chostochindttis you mentioned. I’ve never heard of it.

Tatyana, I’ve got everything crossed for good news for you on Wednesday. It’s just bloody horrible isn’t it. Yes, I got insurance from insurewith. Only £29 for me and hubby. Without cancellation. We booked a cpl of days before we flew so I knew I wouldn’t really need it. I hope you managed to get to the fireworks.

It turns out my scan is on Friday. It’s my son who has appointment tomorrow. It’s easy to get mixed up we have sooo many between us.

Shi, lovely to see your happy cheery post on a Monday morning. 😀😀😀 hope things are going well for you.

We had a great time at the caravan. Miles danced Saturday away at the two parties. He looked fabulous in his zombie knight outfit. 😍
I think I need to start planning our next get away. My dad always said everyone needs something to look forward to and he was absolutely right. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hello lovely ladies! Angela, have a fab time in the caravan with little Miles, what is it about kids and caravans, whenever my grandson visits all he wants to do is play in the camper van, although it's just sitting on the drive! Glad you managed to get to Alicante, I can't remember what treatment you are on now, did you manage to get insurance? And good luck with the scan, I hope you get a "stable Mabel."
Michelle, lovely to hear from you but so sorry you have to make this horrible decision about the operation. Take your time and talk to lots of people and make whatever decision feels right to you. It's such rotten luck to have to cope with that on top of all you've been through over the last couple of years.
I'm seeing the oncologist on Wednesday for results of latest scan, I'm a bit like you Angela in that I don't really feel the current regime has got it under control. Just have to wait and see what they say.

Sending hugs to all of you, it's lovely that people still drop in here occasionally, good luck with whatever is happening in your lives! It's our village bonfire night tonight, hoping to be well enough to go, as I had chemo yesterday, postponed from last week (as usual!). But even if I'm feeling a bit frail, it's literally 50 yards from our house and if all else fails I can go upstairs and see the fireworks from the bedroom window! 🔥🎇🎆🎇

Re: July 2017

Angela im glad you have had a lovely time with your brother and raring to go to the caravan with Miles have a fab time hope you got that washing dry!!
Maybe you have some chostochindttis from radiotherapy i have it my onc said its quite painful at times and also a common long term SE from radiotherapy what the never tell you about unless you get it well my app was 😝 need an op nit happy about it its quite a big one and im worrying about having it done i said at appointment i didn't know if i wanted it but spoke to his sec today and asked if i can go back and see him, i don't want to end up disabled as the problem is progressive quite slowly but still is going to be if left i need to be sensible if my bc returns i need to be strong enough to deal with treatment etc a disability of the spine could hinder things i always like to think of the bigger picture im a realist!!!
Angela i will be thinking about you on Tuesday for your scan i really hope it is going well with treatment and things are going well i will keep everything crossed for you, your attitude towards this is fantastic as is Tatanya and Missa tou truly are special ladies
Angela let me know when you fancy that cuppa my lovely no pressure just when you can x
Missa me too you have been in my thoughts if you are reading the forum sending you a virtual hug 👭
Love to everyone what a special bunch of gals you are

Re: July 2017

Good morning ladies. I hope everyone is well.
Carole, it’s rubbish that you’ve had to choose between financial stability or your health. I’m sure you’ll be able to cut your cloth accordingly, but wish for you it didn’t have to be that way.

Michelle, I hope you don’t need an operation, but i know you’ll cope well if you do. I understand your frustration with your onco. Given the numbers of people who do eventually get secondaries, then I think It’s absolutely a legitimate concern. There should be a lot more support and advice in place. What signs and symptoms to look out for etc at the very least.
I bet Ella looked absolutely gorgeous. Isn’t it such a treat to dress the little ones up. 😍
I’ll be wearing last year’s pumpkin outfit agin. 🙄
We’ve just got back from Alicante. Weather wasn’t great but got to spend time with my brother who lives there.
Plenty of washing to do now before I pack to leave for the caravan this afternoon. Can’t wait to pick our little miles up from school at 3pm. He’ll be sooo excited.

My next scan is Tuesday. 😳😳😳 I’m sure I’ve got some rib pain now and I’m not really holding out much hope of stable with this regime if I’m honest.

I hope everyone else is doing well. It would be good to have an update on missa. You’re on my mind a lot. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Carole im pleased to hear that you have made the best choice for you re the job it is now something that you don't have to be anxious and worried about you will not regret it 👍
Angela you are doing the caravan at Bamburgh for Halloween aren't you i hope today's wintery showers were a blip and doesn't get in the way of your fun, i know you have your scans coming up soon so I hope you are feeling OK about everything.
Ella has a Halloween party on Monday at soft play shes got a little costume 😈 i think theres a little disco thing for the kids so going along can't wait
Im seeing Neuro doc on Thursday so I will find out what is what surgery is not what i wanted but if its needed i will do it it, so had onc follow up on Monday had reviewed scans nothing cancer related showing which was obviously good to hear my onc is lovely, a very intelligent and diligent man and a great oncologist, but im not sure he gets it if that makes sense i don't like being compartmentalised as a statistic he seems dismissive when you want to talk about recurrence surely is a legitimate and reasonable question to ask!!! once the "treatment" is finished i find they can't get you out of the door quick enough!?

Re: July 2017

Carole, congratulations on making that huge decision! I wish you all the best, it'll be tough without the money but life will be much better without the pressure of having to drag yourself to a job when you can't cope through no fault of your own. Your health will benefit, for sure! Sending hugs.xx

Re: July 2017

Hi lovely ladies

I’ve just given notice on my job. Going to retire-even though that leaves me without income for 6 years. Couldn’t cope with the job any longer. Hope you’re all doing the best you can . xx

Re: July 2017

Hi Michelle, hi all! Yes it's so beautiful out of doors, it lifts the spirits. My bloods were playing up again, but bounced back in the nick of time to get yesterday's chemo done, thank goodness. On condition that I go in on Monday for a blood transfusion! Don't really mind as it will make me feel better, but it's a very boring long day!

Had a lovely time in Devon despite the foul weather last weekend! It's always fun to be in the camper van, and we had a great time with the family. Matilda is a four-year old force of nature!
Hope you are all ok and enjoying the autumn colours. xx

Re: July 2017

Hi Carole.
Hopefully you’ll find some relief with the orthotics. You’re absolutely right though, you have to keep moving regardless of the pain. 😳
😍😍😍 absolutely loving this pic. What I’d give to be sitting enjoying a cuppa there right now. Xxx
Member

Re: July 2017

Ooo Michelle. That sounds awful. Fingers crossed for today. Can they give you something for the pain beforehand? At least these scans ets should show exactly what’s going on and then hopefully they’ll be able to mange things better for you.
Twitter is great because people are being active trying to achieve better outcomes.
This thread is my little sanctuary though. I can give advice and support to others on other forums but when I need it myself I always come here.
Thanks ladies. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Good luck with the tests Mishy, it sounds horrible 😢but get it over with. 

 

I saw the podiatrist yesterday and he confirmed it is plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis because my ankles don’t flex much which is a side effect of the Letrozole. Having orthotics made and suggested I do not walk if it’s too painful.  Hmm, well It’s always painful and I need to walk to keep my joints moving and for bone strength. It can’t repair if I keep walking so all a bit of a balancing act.

Re: July 2017

Good to hear from you Carole.
Pleased you had a lovely holiday. I’ve never been to Windsor or ST Ives. I’d like to visit both. I was just thinking the other day how little of our own country I’ve seen.
Great you got to meet up with some of your bc friends. 😀
I hope the podiatrist managed to help you? My right foot is almost better now. However, I woke up the other morning and my wrist joint was swollen. It had gone down by teatime. Very random. 🙄
Xxx
P.s. I’ve already posted this once but it isn’t showing so ignore me if I repeat myself.

Re: July 2017

Hi ladies

Angela I’m pleased your treatment is going smoothly. Tatyana have a great time in Devon. Weather is beautiful today but don’t know if it will last.
I have had a great time last week. We went to Windsor, Bath and finally on to St Ives for a few days. Met with pink ladies last Tuesday in Bath and we chatted for ages. So good to see them x
I’m off to the podiatrist this afternoon to see about my painful feet. 😩

Re: July 2017

Hi tatyana.
Great that your bloods are behaving themselves. Yes, isn’t it crazy some of the things that make us happy now. 😂 I cheered in the chemo ward when the pharmacist turned up with my meds. I’d waited nearly two hours for him. Never thought I’d be excited to receive that sort of delivery.
I’m not a big red meat eater either. We’re having chilli tomorrow though. I like mine topped with a fried egg. Strange but delicious.
I hope yous have a lovey trip away. I can just imagine the photos. 😍 they’re just soooo lovely at that age. I’m picking miles up from school today. He’s only four. Had to hold back the tears the first time I saw him in his uniform. 😢

Re: July 2017

Hi Angela, yes, you guys are great at doing the blood dance, I got my chemo on Friday. That's two in a row!! Funny how chuffed you can feel, just because you're well enough to get a nice dose of poison! My haemoglobin is a bit low so I'm trying to cram in lots of iron rich foods. Don't really like red meat, but did make a lovely chili con carne last night if I do say so myself.
All systems go for our Devon trip, we're off on Thursday for a long weekend, fingers crossed. Granddaughter spent all day at nursery yesterday dressed as a sheep. As you do. Can't wait to see her!

Re: July 2017

Morning ladies.
How is everyone? Tatyana I hope your bloods were okay? Did you manage to get to Devon to see your granddaughter?
Our little ones have had nasty coughs so I had to stay away from them at the weekend. 🙁 with my low neuts it’s just too risky.
Michelle have you had your scans yet? How did they go?
Hoping everyone else is well. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hi ladies! Carole, how lovely to meet up with the other ladies. Enjoy the rest of your break.

Happy birthday to Ella -- I can't believe a year has gone by! Michelle, I hope you are having a lovely day with your lovely granddaughter.

Angela, good luck with your scan but it's too soon to worry about it yet!! A Halloween weekend sounds like a great idea. As the weather gets cooler, those hot flushes will be a blessing. Ha ha. Not! Meanwhile I'm feeling the cold, I've never minded it but nowadays I'm really nesh!

We're hoping to get down to Devon the weekend after next to see our granddaughter, who will soon be four. We're planning to take the campervan. So fingers crossed for the weather and also for my bloods, because I don't want this Friday's chemo to be delayed!
Love to all of you, Missa,Shi and the gang, good luck with your treatments and don't forget to have fun.xxx

Re: July 2017

Morning Michelle. Can’t believe it’s Ella’s birthday already. 😳 hope yous have a lovely day. 🎉🎂
We should all be able to go away whenever we want I think. Hubby would disagree. 😂 I love seahouses. We’re thinking of popping up for Halloween weekend. The caravan site always have a good fancy dress party and our miles wants to visit bamburgh castle again. Also our year passes into Alnwick castle are still valid so it’s a shame not to make the most of them.
We should definitely meet for a coffee some time.
I love cooking as well. Keeps me away from shopping. 😂
Let us know how your scans go. My first ct since starting this new regime is in about 4 weeks. 😳

Missa how are you? I’ve everything crossed that your treatment is working.

Tatyana, Carole, Kimi, shi, I hoping you’re all good and enjoying this crisp weather. Im a sun worshipper but have to say this year the cold is a bit of a relief with these hot flushes. I’d say I have about 30 per day. 😳😳😳

Re: July 2017

Good morning tatyana. How great that you’re enjoying a few days away in your camper van. It’ll be lovely to catch up with your old friend.

I’d love to grow old but wouldn’t want to be in a care home. And dementia would be my greatest fear.
However, I think it’s only natural for us to think why can some grow old and others not.
When I went for my mammogram last yr and was diagnosed with bc there was a lady there who was 100. She was complaining that at her age she shouldn’t have to go through the anxiety. As it turned out she didn’t have it and I did. The look on my husband’s face when she came out of her appointment with a massive smile on her face and I’d just been given the bad news. 😳

It’s niot that we wished the poor women any ill, but we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t think why me and not her. I know that’s unfair, but still, it did cross our minds. Life isn’t fair is it. It’s as simple as that.

How absolutely terrible for those young men Michelle. There is always someone worse off isn’t there. I feel I’m being robbed of my future some days but I’ve had double the life they have. I hope they’re both okay in the end.
My dad has been dead over two years now and I still often have bad days. Especially Sundays as he died on a Sunday. And of course there’s on less place at the table.
Anyway, I’m being ever so dreary. I’m going to cheer myself by having a Yorkshire pudding and get ready for the family to arrive in an hour. And the sun is shining here so I think today will be a good day.

Love Angela. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Tatanya enjoy visiting your friend i love campervans!!! Even in tge rain i love a caravan!
Was feeling very sentimental yesterday about my dad and just found iut about someone i knows daughters boyfriend only 22 he and his twin were both diagnosed with testicular cancer 18months ago ge had op to remove his and his brother eent through treatment etc well the poor lad has got it back after a tear in remission poor las thought he was done with it and i couldn't help but feel why oh why and yes my nana is in a care home too with late stage alzheimers shes had a great life but although shes comfortable and well in herself uts just not her anymore i hope i never came across as spiteful towards the elderly I don't mean it!!!!! There are some real characters in my nanas home and their dementia seems to have created brand new persona's my nana however is just lying there in her silent world how i miss her bolshyness
Very cold out so today im going to make a chicken dinner
Love to you all xx

Re: July 2017

Angela and Michelle, I'd love to give both of you a big hug right now! If it's any consolation, the thing about envying older people doesn't stop when you get older!! I'm 64 and in recent months I've sometimes had to struggle with my feelings around my parents who are 95. They are in a care home now and both suffering from various ailments and slow dementia, it's a very sad thing to see and there's nothing anyone can do, they are well looked after and relatively comfortable. But until well into their 90s they lived a very happy and independent life. So now when they complain- quite justifiably- about how awful things are, I can't help thinking about the 30 years of good life that they had after retiring, which I'm not going to get... I wouldn't wish dementia on anyone, but I don't think my own situation is much better thank you! And then of course I feel mean for having that thought.

But thoughts are just thoughts. More to the point, right now we're in Cambridgeshire in the campervan in the pouring rain, looking forward to lunch with my oldest friend who I havent seen for a year!
Love and hugs to all, and love also to all our grandchildren!
Member

Re: July 2017

I agree with everything you’ve said Michelle. If we were speaking face to face I think we’d of had a big hug by now.
Cancer definitely makes us feel everything on a deeper level. Like I’ve said before; I’m living in technicolour now.

Re: July 2017

Your trwins were def meant to be me too mam to Holly at 19 who gave me my little Ella and i don't mind a bit being a Granma at 47 i don't care what other people say my mam was granny when i had Holly and she was young too, age doesn't define us love does i say and have buckets loads of love left in me in fact sometimes when i look at my little family i get really emotional which is something i never experienced before any of this happened although i had moments of love for them and pride now its different
Eeh im getting all emosh thinking about it 😍😍😍😍😍
Yeah i certainly look at life a whole lot differently nowadays xx

Re: July 2017

Hi Michelle.
I totally get the jealous thing when seeing old people. I first felt that when my dad dropped dead at 69. Watching old couples holding hands and thinking why them and not my Mam and dad. 🤔
Now I see people in their 50s and think lucky you. Will I get there? In fact I had a bad day last week where I thought ‘do I really need to buy anti wrinkle cream anymore if my face isn’t going to get any older’. 😳
I gave myself a hard slap after that thought and moved on. 🙄
It is the loveliest thing in the world when a little person loves you. I’m granny. People always say how can you be a granny you’re so young. At 44 I am a young granny, but a very very grateful one.
When I had my twins at 16 I thought ‘have I wasted my life’. Now I know it was meant to be.
Anyway, on a brighter note, let’s all enjoy what’s left of the good (ish) weather. My garden has had a haircut today and is looking rather splendid. Xxxx

Re: July 2017

The wind is harsh isn't it been shopping today for Ellas birthday presents well the rest of them, i was bloody knackered when i got back i just don't seem to have the stamina any more!!
Ah a bet rbe funeral was a sad occasion but wow 99 i don't know why but ever since diagnosis I feel a twinge of envy when i see real oldies celebrating a long life and feel how unjust it is that some people are able to do that when orhers aren't then i feel spiteful for thinking like that good on her i bet some of her stories were fantastic and yeah you right living in the olden days with fashions and breakthroughs in technology things we take for granted we're not even around it seems surreal doesn't it im pleased you had a close relationship with her irs lovely to have someone in your life like that i miss having grandparents its a special relationship i love being a Granma its totally different to being a mam 💖
I think i might go in the garden tomorrow for a little potter before the weather changes and get it ready for winter nit that i can do much atm so frustrating this neck thing i literally need someone to do nearly everything little thing couldn't even carry shopping bags which i part of the experience u think 😂😂
Anyway i need to stop my winging Angela use your persuasive charm and plan that next break 👍

Re: July 2017

Morning ladies.
I’ve hope you’ve all had a good week.
Hi Michelle. I’ve been to Macmillan at my local hospital, but not maggies as it’s just too far away.
It’s lovely that you and your Mam are donating to the fete. It’ll be lovely.
I’m not enjoying this windy weather, although the bitterness in the wind does help with my hot flushes. 😀 there’s always a bright side.
Pleased you had a nice time in Scotland. I’m starting the get itchy feet for a holiday. I just need to do a bit of arm twisting first I think.
I was at an old neighbours funeral yesterday. It was a sad day, she was such a lovely lady and like a nana to me. She was 99. 😳 what a long life. Seeing photos of her when she was young it was hard to get my head around what they were wearing. She was alive in the OLDEN days.
We’ve not got much on this weekend. A bit of tree trimming and the family for dinner tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing well. It’s appointment after appointment for me next week. Xxx

Hi ladies just checking in on you all hoping everyone is OK and had a good week
Enjoyed Scotland but was pleased to get home before the gales hit!!!!
Angela i don't k ow if you are aware but the Maggies based in Freeman hospital grounds has a secondary bc support group i don't know if its your thing or not but I thought i would mention it
They are having a xmas fete 24 November so my mam has been making cards gift boxes etc to help raise some funds im going to make a hamper for the raffle i will be attending as they got me through some tough times during my chemo days when i lost dad and im eternally grateful to them for that, i don't attend now as i feel im ok without it but will continue to support them and attend events lije that
Hope everyone isn't too badly effected by the wind im off to take izzy for a walk before it gets up again xxx

Re: July 2017

Hoping you have a lovely time in Scotland Michelle. Isn’t it just great to get away for a few days.
I LOVE holidays. My hubby isn’t so keen. He’d rather stay at home.
He’s not a very willing masseuse either Carole. I make him do it bless him 😂

I’m coping well with the meds Michelle. Won’t find out if they’re doing their job until 3 month scan which is about 6 weeks off. Sure the fear monster will try and creep back in as that approaches. 🙃
Until then I’m staying positive. 👍

I’m hand holding back. Xxxx
