I’m home now, after having ultrasound and with antibiotics for uti. My urine dip flagged up for all infection markers and it is susceptible to this new antibiotic. The ultrasound of bladder and kidneys showed a very, very full bladder, abnormally so, too big to fit on screen, possibly 2litres! Also showed ‘debris’. After sending me to loo, it had about 1litre showing that I’m not emptying bladder. They said it could have been creeping up and could be the cause of my uti over last two years. Ha, could also explain my pod. Maybe something good will come out of all this. I’ve got to assess how much I drink and pass and go in tomorrow for an urologist’s apt. Or before, if I’m in pain or stop passing urine. There’s definitely ‘debris’ in my wee-think clotted blood. (tmi???? Forewarned is forearmed).🎢🚽🎢🚽🎢🚽 Watch that pan ladies.
My bloods showed neutrophils of 34, again THIRYFOUR, so I definitely have spare to share today! 👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻
Hope everyone had an ok day today, I haven’t caught up with the chats yet. Anyone on that 🏥🚂 with me tomorrow?
Thanks Jellytot re tip on eye drops, I might try some of them.
Ladies, I know I go on about the yoga thing, but I've found that it does help breakdown the scar tissue. 🙂
My eyes have felt sore the last couple of days like they're over tired I wonder if that's dry eyes too. I might mention that when I go for chemo next week. I had wle my bc was grade 2 stage 1 no nodes involved. I think I had quite a bit of dcis so maybe that's why I'm getting the extra rads.
Sue, Karen yes I did mean marmite and peanut butter together you should try it 😋
Just been for appointment with onco, they were running about 20 minutes late and then the appointment itself was a bit of a waste of time really ☹️ I think it's just a tick box exercise to say they've seen me halfway through. I've decided that she is just admin and that the onco nurses are the ones with the power but probably get paid a fraction if the salary. As she only seems interested in paperwork. I told her about feeling increasingly sick on chemo day she said there's nothing that can be done and to speak to onco nurse they'll provide more tablets. I told her about the dizziness and nope there's nothing to be done about that either. However, what she did say was this "as you've done so well with chemo and because you are young we're going to offer you 5 more booster rads so you'll get 20 instead of 15. Is this something you'd like to agree to?" 😳She made it sound like some sort of prize for doing well! Wish I wasn't doing so bloody well now! Don't seem to be able to win! It sounds like they're not happy that they've broken my body sufficiently enough so they'll add some more rads to take care of that! On the positive side I guess it means they're happy with how I'm doing and that I m getting everything possible to kick this thing once and for all. I think it was just the way she delivered it! Sorry rant over now.
Buddyfan, hope all your test results come back ok!
Karen, my OH just made his side of the bed this morning despite me getting up 40mins before him! 😡He goes through a stage of this every now and again not sure why. Oh and he cleaned the shower and basin yesterday but not the bath or toilet, who knows what goes on in his head sometimes. I'm nit complaining though as at least he done some of it.
hope you're all having a good day! I better get back to work now!
Good luck today Ali and Buddy hope everything’s ok!
Marmite and cheese is one of my favs not sure about marmite and peanut butter tho!!
I slept really well although got woken when OH got home (1.30am!). We were then woken up at 815 by surveyor that was supposed to be here at 915...not started on a good note with OH...I’m hiding upstairs and keeping well away!!
Gonna try sort something with my sister but prob won’t be TIL after Xmas now, she’s a single parent with 3 boys and the youngest is only 10 so quite diff for her to get away...she has been really good and has managed to visit me twice already since I’ve started treatment! She’s gonna drive here on Xmas day as boys spending time with their dad, so after they have been picked up she’s coming here, works quite well as we open 12-3 Xmas day so don’t have dinner until about 430! She’s also a brilliant bar maid, just a shame she’s not any closer ☹️
