Yes, love The Apprentice Shi! Wonder if those two women will still be having digs at each other?! (Can't rem their names)
Think it must be me, but the steroids didn't seem to make any difference to my sleep, woke up for a wee as usual, but that was it! xx
Karen, just a thought but is your back pain similar to period pain? Just asking as you said you'd had your coil removed and hadn't had a period yet?
Have took my meds’ so hopefully they will kick in, have just sucked a sweet now might try a jelly baby, and ginger biscuit! Shi what is a thunderbird? Will try the antiseptic wipe trick! Thank you for the support & sparkles...will phone if it gets any worse ✨✨✨🌟🌟💫💫💫💫
Hi Sue, yes carvery should be ok, check that it is all fresh cooked and not reheated and food is hot not just warm. Sounds like an excuse for a lovely bit of pudding an custard too. Hi Peta, thanks for dropping in on us here in Oct 17, 3 years on from your journey. Lovely to hear you are all in touch from your Oct 14 thread, it a journey we couldnt get through without each other and we are lucky that we have ladies from May 17, July 17 and Sept 17 helping us through this too so thanks any advise is greatly appreciated. We do have Meesh holding our chemo train driver at gunpoint making sure we all get through this safely and lots of strong amazing women in this Oct thread and as you can see we are also crazy frog too, brrrriiing ding, ding ding ding, remember that tune ladies, that what this feels like a bit doesnt it. Karana hope you manage to get the apprentice in tonight, those rooms they did up last week ..... Lord Sugar must have had a stiff drink after seeing what they came up with. Love and sparkles shi xx
I saw Oct 17 on top of the stack and thought I should drop in and say hi and send you best wishes!
I'm from the October 2014 thread, which seems such a long time away now, but it's still so fresh in my mind.
I'm still in touch with our Oct 2014 posse and they're all lovely ladies. We all have hair again now, but my armpit hair never did grow back, hurrah for small mercies!
I hope it all goes well for you all, if any of you have any questions that I might be able to help you with please do feel free to ask.
Very best wishes to you all - I thought October was a good time to start chemo, because you can curl up at home and then when you finish it's just as Spring has sprung, the flowers are blooming and you're through to the other side.
Best wishes xxx
Sue I think you will be fine, I had a car very last week so that wld have been about day 14, didn’t enjoy it much but that’s just me but didn’t have any adverse effect on me at all!!
Ive just ate some veg bake thing I made yesterday, didn’t really enjoy if but thinking if I eat I will feel better, my back is really aching and didn’t have that last time 😬 think I need to get some Epsom salts, will send someone to the shop! OH has made me put pjs on so I can’t go downstairs!!
Shi I will be attempting to watch apprentice from my bed later 😘 xxx
Reeboot, love that jumper, brillint find. Yes Karana had a bit of a headache first couple of days but not enough to take paracetamol or anything, dont know how the other ladies got on with headaches? Hope everyones se's are doing ok and for those who've had round 2 today rest up and take it steady - Karana hope OH is letting you rest up a bit. Me too Meesh I'll be bouncing off the walls, but again we have a good forum and someone is usually on in the night, so we always have someone there even during the night luckily as we all have the most crazy sleeping patterns dont we. Apprentice tonight, anyone else watching it? Love Shi xx
Brilliant reboot....we are all definitely Wonder Woman!! Xx
Does anyone else get headaches the first couple of days?? Xxx
Karen, you won't be the only one still to have leg hair, as mine is still there. Still have arm hair judging by how it just hurt to take off my plaster (although probably a couple less now) but my arms are not that hairy so difficult to see.
My underarms are similar to chaffinches although both are still hairy im trying to work out if they've thinned slightly, one more than the other (but it's my op one that's hairier, probably because I haven't shaved it since the beginning of August) difficult to tell as the hair is so damn long!
Shi, hope you get a good time for tomorrow. I've been lucky to have mine in the morning, I think it gets it out of the way and also gets the steroids in you earlier so you can sleep at night!
Totally agree with you Shi....were all amazing in our own special way ✨✨🦄🌟🌟💃💫💫💪
Ive drank 2 1/2 pints of water since I’ve been home and now feeling very bloated, I’m still a bit headachey tho so not sure if water is helping with that 😬
Hi Meesh I am waiting for them to ring me with a time for tomorrow. Ice Lollies at the ready tho. Yep getting my 2L+ a day down me like a good girl, I never thought 2L+ a day would be so hard to drink did any of you? Sue I am with you on the arm and leg hair still got mine in. Mishy18 you are ahead of us how did you get on with the arm and leg hair? Karana, agree that only ladies on the forum understand how we discuss everything from poo tips, sparkling tizer pee, radioactive body waste from the op to hair comparisons, and everything else we want to have answered, it really does help so very much to check with each other on se's and meds and gets us all through this journey and being crazy helps keep you sane during this if that makes sense. I am in awe of the ladies who have worked throughout the chemo, you are amazing and then some. Love Shi xx
Think it was the support and sparkles that def helped 🚂🚂💫💫💃💃🌟🌟💫💫✨✨🦄🦄💃💃, was talking about you guys to my nurse and she just smiled & nodded, prob think I’m a fruit loop!!
My nunu hair seems to be shedding in patches, not a very pretty look, armpit seem to have almost gone and leg hair holding in...bet I will be one of those that don’t lose it!! What about hair on arms, mines not gone anywhere yet!
i do love our random convos!!
So who do we have on the chemo train for the rest of the week? Shi, you're tomorrow. Sam34 are you tomorrow or Friday? Runnerbean, you must be this week too? Gosh busy week for the chemo 🚂 👨🏻✈️
Well good luck everyone sending 🌈🦄🌟✨🌟🦄🌈🦄✨✨💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🌟🌟🦄🌈🌈 that all tests and chemo goes well for you and keeps those pesky side effects away!
Shi, hope you're drinking loads today! What time are you on tomorrow?
Hi Karen, glad you didn't miss the chemo🚂👨🏻✈️ And glad you're feeling ok. Hope it continues seems like the steak, veg, Guinness and ✨🌟✨🌟🌈🦄🌈🦄💃🏻🌟✨🕺🏻Worked for you! Love the thought of weeing sparkles! We can add it to the blue/ green wee after surgery and the tizer wee from chemo!
Dizzie, tried to wax my legs once omg ended up with wax everywhere. I used one of those heat in the microwave roll on jobbies, it ended up in the microwave, on the toilet seat, over the carpet and on the phone (my mum called right in the middle)! Vowed never to do that again. Thinking about it makes me Wonder if waxing would be too harsh on the skin after chemo though as they say the skin can be extra sensitive 😖
Karana brilliant news that you are ok and had no 2, good luck chaffinch and hope no 2 goes well for you too. Dizzy that would have been funny if he had been there and not 'popped out' and asked you what you were laughing at and you could have said meesh's foo foo hair down to her knees and her record breaking underarm hair ... he wouldnt ever ask you ask you again what you were laughing at. Now that would be something to Pee sparkles, although on loose women they had that glittler bomb thing for the privates on a few weeks ago and that looked bizare to say the least. I am all for a bit of glitter and sparkles but there is a line. Meesh look where that movie mogul's 'popping out' has landed him these last few weeks ... you do make me belly laugh Meesh - thank you. Love Shi xx
Hello everyone...bloods were back up to 1.8 so was able to have round 2 🛎 all went ok, nurse was a lot nicer this time and soaked my hand in warm water so no trouble with cannula and she explained things so much better too, and I got a sandwich! Now back home drinking water and munching on some crisps, feel ok just a bit strange, hoping things stay good xx
shi so pleased your levels are back up and you can have chemo 2 ....hopefully they will get it right this time and you won’t suffer so badly 😘 Glad you’re feeling bit better today Meesh, my LGFG course isn’t TIL the 21st Nov as was fully booked until then!!
Loving the idea of eating sparkles ✨ , shame they can’t change the red stuff into sparkly stuff then we could wee sparkles!!! ✨✨✨
I had my coil taken out 5 days before 1st chemo and still not had a period but not sure how that will pan out, haven’t had one for years so think it will be a bit of a shock when and if it does happen!!
Runnerbean, that's a problem as I don't think it'd be easy cutting them with ✂️ 😂 although Shi did recommend a Braun lady shaver which might do the job. I think I already have one somewhere but I could only face doing legs with it!
Hahaha, stupid sausage fingers! Doesn't help that I sliced my typing finger on a drink can this morning and it's covered in germolene and plaster
