I’m the same keep fancying all the wrong foods and now Mc Donald’s have been mentioned I want one of those 😬
Day 20 for me and obviously had hair shaved Friday but can even pull the stubble out so think I may be shinny bald quite soonish! Leg hair still there, I’ve never had really hairy armpits so not too sure about them, my nunu hair is still there but I haven’t shaved since first treatment and it hasn’t really grown much 😱 eyebrows and eyelashes still intact but have been using lash serum so maybe that’s helping....I’ve just had a lesson on drawing eyebrow in by a lovely friend so I’m prepared 😊
Just a normal size cheeseburger Shi, but I could have eaten a bigger one! I don't know what's happening, I don't fancy much that's healthy at the moment! Good thing my ED isn't at home, she'd be busy juicing and cooking lots of veg for me to eat! xx
Think I'm going to put on weight, not lose it, I'm fancying all the wrong type of food! Just had 1st line flush and the nurse said eat what you fancy, so I've had a MacDonalds! I don't normally want to eat them! What's happened to my tastebuds?! xx
Hello ladies, Since my 1st FEC on 13th October I only now feel okish, only by sheer luck I have not ended up in hospital, but I am on antibiotics for 2 infections & dreading finishing them in case I get ill again.
I havent yet read the rest of the thread & I'll do that over the next day or so. But I really hope everyone is ok xx
Ha ha SueW, too right!
Hospital called, looks like i'll be in with the driver, choo choo all aboard 👨🏻✈️🚂 for chemo No 2!
Having roast dinner tonight as last dinner I'll really enjoy for a few days! Let's hope the chemo treats as kindly 🦄🦄✨🌟✨🦄🌈✨💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻🌈💃🏻🌈💃🏻🕺🏻🕺🏻
This is certainly no disease for the vain that's for sure! I've not had kids but if it's like chemo then I'm glad I didn't! Although at least you all have lovely children to show for it! ☺️
Hi Ruth, meds are metoclopramide.
Cassie, I used lactulose post chemo and that was ok.
Bloods came back ok but seems the immodium to counteract the erythromycin wore off whilst at the hospital 😱. I'm now waiting to feel 'well' enough to go home. Honestly, by the time this treatment is all over I'll have no shame left😁😁
Thanks Jencat, how are you doing today? Love and sparkles shi xx And agree ladies below totally there is nothing we cant ask each other about its lovely knowing we can all share our experience and help each other through as much as we can. Love and sparkles and wishing everyones se's away. shi xx
Hi Cassie, I was given laxido by the hospital. I had one sachet twice a day for the first couple of days after chemo and didn't really suffer with constipation. I think others have tried other stuff but not sure what. There was a bit of a discussion about it a while back. Hope you get it sorted soon! 🙂
Dizzie, hope your results are ok! Then perhaps you can get some good days in before your next session. 😀🦄🦄🦄🦄🌟✨🌟✨🌈💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻🕺🏻
Sorry Cassie, must've missed your post about not feeling great! Hope you're feeling better now and on the up 😀 Sending 🦄🦄🦄✨🌟✨🌈🦄🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻
Hi ladies, Cassie sorry to hear 2nd one knocked you for six but really please to hear you are feeling brighter today. Meesh ... mmmm crap trainee is all you need isnt it not like we have to preserve our veins or anything especially if you;ve had op, the only have the one hand and arm to go at. Karana, hope you bloods are ok, I am sure they will be, you beat the crap out of the chemo this round. Claire do some lovely sparkly headbands, I got one in for when my fuzz starts to grow back again. Thank Mishy again for advising it comes back when you start the T part. Its not steriod delay is it Karana with the anger? but agree you should just go there you are darling, I have to watch for germs now so your help would be much appreciated. I've spent the morning having a good wardrobe clear out and got mum to take to Cancer Research charity shop, there is no point hangin onto anything I really wont wear again now body shape has changed, so at least it'll be raising funds for research. My bloods tomorrow, seeing on on Wed and if all ok then next one should be Thurs (hopefully a lower dose, so I can handle it a bit better this time) Got My Life Mel Honey at the ready too to try and boost my system. I am going to do my jab myself this round even though I am needle phobic, I want to get them into me asap on the day rather than the 5pm the district nurse came round. When I was in hospital last week, someone said do them alternative sides of you belly, i.e. go round your belly button like a clock left side then right side then left side etc, has anyone else been told to do this? love and sparkes Shi xx
Sat in the hospital at the minute waiting for my blood results to come back but feeling normal 😁 so fingers crossed. The new antisickness meds seem to be doing the job. I actually managed to get up and sort my kitchen out this morning. Never thought I'd be happy to do housework. My husband's been a diamond though.
I hope everyone's feeling better and having good day!
Ha ha Karana, I feel your pain! I've just cleaned most of the house and OH has disappeared out on his new bike! I too am feeling a bit stompy! I'm refusing to hoover though as that's his job and if I do it he'll let me!
Ruth, I gave my OH a list once, he purposely didn't do anything on it (he is not a list person and doesn't like being told what to do, although perhaps he gets fed up with me being bossy). Instead I have to find other ways to make him do stuff usually a guilt trip works, especially at the moment.
Not sure what the nurse was up to she didn't have trouble finding the vein, just feels like she used a screwdriver to get the blood!
On the bright side head is feeling a bit better after its wash this morning not so itchy and sore 😀 That's the problem with curly hair I think rather than fall out, it wraps itself round the other hair instead and makes it itchy!
Meesh my bloods went ok...no Argos trainee for me luckily! I think I get a telephone assessment tomorrow before chemo on wed so reckon I’ll find out if bloods ok then! I’m gonna be on that train right behind you 💃dancing along with lots of magical unicorn power 🦄 to make round 2 nice and smooth 🌟🌟 that’s the plan anyway!!
Those of you with nasty SE hope they get sorted soon and you start feeling better!
Shi it was a very plain headband I’m afraid but gonna try and get some sparkly ones!! ✨✨
Morning Sue 😘
I seem to be in angry mode today OH just sitting there watching crap TV and I’ve been done bloods, cleaned the whole pub and our kitchen and now need to tackle the pub kitchen which is covered in left over cake!! I might just throw it in his face! Can I get away with saying it’s the chemo that makes me aggressive??!!
Thank god god I have you ladies to rant too 😘🌟🌟✨✨
