Come on Treehouse - just think of all the other s**t you've been through on this horrid journey - with the help of the antibiotics I'm sure you'll soon be on the road to recovery. I'm sending soft, gentle hugs to make you feel better and I'm sending lots of ammunition from afar!
Hope you get a more peaceful night tonight, although you probably don't feel like it at all - keep on smiling (or at least try to).
Lots of love xxx
Happy Birthday Rosie, enjoy being spoilt. 🎁 💄 🎂
Treehouse, I have set up some long range misiles to kill the infection. 📡 ✨✨ Try and keep your chin up chick, I know it's hard but once the antibiotics kick in you should start feeling better. What do the medical team say about the recurring migraines? Sending gentle hugs. Xx
Dafodil, you should contact the breast nurse in case of infection. Does the red area feel hot?
Im having a Caravan PJ day. Spoke to the DN and drains will come off tomorrow day 7 so I can't do much and I feel ill with this cold. Sneezing is the last thing you need when you have stitches across your chest! 🤒Anyone have instructions on how to hold in a sneeze? My man is going to get us some chips, mushy peas and gravy from the chippy. I can't wait! 😀 🍟
Oh no treehouse sorry to hear you are in hospital. Hope they sort your infection soon and you start to feel better. The oncology ward sounds like a much better place for you, nothing worse than other people keeping you awake when you feel rough. Big hugs xx
Good luck Misyangel with your surgery, once asleep I guess it doesn't really matter how long it takes. Hope that most of us can be finished with treatment by Christmas 🎄
It's my birthday today so lots to distract me this weekend from thinking about Weds!!
My daughter arranged for someone to come and do my make up with tricks to hide my lack of eyebrows and lashes and a voucher to buy some new make up. She has also had a cake made and soon the family are coming for tea and cake, then on to the theatre to see Grease followed by dinner for 12 of us. Only found all this out this morning!
Does anyone else have redness around mastectomy site? I am now one month post surgery and have noticed a redness around but not on scar area. The scar itself looks okay. Not sure if this is just part of tissue healing. Not unwell so not thinking infection yet.
Treehouse so sorry you have ended up in hospital it is never ending.
Annie A hope you get your date soon to start rads, it is frustrating when you have an end date in site and worry the goal posts move 😞
Rosie that is a long time for surgery, makes my one hour look pathetic next to yours lol, I have my op the day before you
Mai hope you feel better soon sending hugs
Get well soon, Treehouse.
Jay, my radiotherapy is in Hertfordshire. We can compare notes.
I will have to stay with friends down that way as we have now moved to Northamptonshire. So can't wait for it to be over and to be able to celebrate Christmas with my family.
Hope everyone is recovering well.
Have a good weekend.
Wow, Treehouse that's far too long to have been in a corridor - glad you're now in a bed. Have they or you mentioned herceptin? - the only reason I ask is it can cause heart problems like you described. Sorry to hear you're feeling rough and I hope you feel better soon xx
Oh no Treehouse! 💗 Sorry to hear you are back in hospital just when you think it's safe to start moving forward a bit. You are in the best place though and I hope they get to the bottom of this and are able to treat it soon. (I didn't even know you could get a heart infection!). Come on Treehouse, you got this, remember weebles wobble but they don't fall down. 💪🏼
Rosie, wow, that's a very long surgery time. Get yourself lots of treats if you need to feel good, just do it.
Shi, hope you enjoy your good days before next poisoning next week but just think, you will be half way already! 💪🏼
Ladies, I too was hoping to get a proper rest for Christmas but not sure when my rads will start and finish yet. It just goes on and on doesn't it, like a bad crackly vinyl record you're tired of hearing!? The DN came to see me this morning and changed the drain bottle but it's already reached 30ml so won't be off tomorrow, nevermind, it will definitely have to come off on Sunday. Getting sick of carrying it around though. To top it all, I started with a sore throat and cold this morning so feeling pretty rotten. As if I didn't have enough to cope with. Stupid human bodies! 🤒
Fingers crossed it's nothing too serious Treehouse x Could it be herceptin related? Thinking of you and hope you're not waiting too long on the trolley! xx
Oh dear! so bussy reading and replying on here, I've only gone and eaten a doughnut BEFORE my healthy cuppa soup!!! Woops!
Oh dear Treehouse - sorry to hear you've ended up in hospital for tests. Do you have any idea what they are testing you for? I hope the stay won't be a long one and hopefully they'll discover what's wrong and sort it out quickl enabling you to recover at home.
How are you feeling in yourself?
Love and hugs to Treehouse, hope they get you sorted soon, maybe the best place if you are not well though.
