Morning ladies! Hope everyone slept well, Runnerbean looks like you were up in early hours.
I had initial mammogram, biopsy and ultrasound, then op. Since then I had a heart echocardiogram and ultrasound type thing prior to chemo as fec can also affect the heart I think. Not had anything else, my nodes were clear s maybe that's why.
I also suffered with a dry nose last cycle and had a bit of blood but no real nose bleed. I stuck some coconut oil up there which seemed to do the trick.
Working again today, need to make up for the 2 hours I was at the hospital yesterday. Going to see the Druid later for my reiki😊 Rash is looking marginally better so going to carry on with the cream and antihistamine today and see what happens.
Hope you've all got good days planned. 😊
I was so excited to see Santa I heard him coming from the bottom of the road so by the time he got by mine i had my hat and coat on so I could stand on the drive and wave
hair loss for me cycle 1 lost lady hair
cycle 2 .. day 4 hair started to shed and was bald by day 6 so once it started to go it was rapid but my hair was shaved to number 2 so no long bits hanging on
Wishing evryone a restful night xxx
Evening ladies....sorry thought I posted earlier but didn’t work!!
managed to get some shopping done although kept having to blow my nose and take my hat off!! Not feeling too bad so think it’s just a common cold but keeping an eye on my temp! Feel a bit shivery now but I think it’s just because I’m cold....now in bed with heated blanket on!!
Meesh hope the rash eases and you don’t need antibiotics 😱
Sue...hope ur cough improves and you gave Santa a big wave from us all!!
I now can’t remember what’s happening with everyone else....bloody stupid chemo brain 😱😱🤣🤣
Love to you all anyway 😘😘😘
Sue, lucky you I haven't seen a santa like hat since I was a kid!
Buddy, I think hair loss can be anywhere from day 14 to 21. I saw mine start on hairwash on day 21 of first cycle and then during first week of second cycle. Since then it's been hair wash on day 14 that I've seen the most hairloss.
Dancing for you Jellytot to get that blood count up 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻🌈✨⭐️⭐️🌈🦄🦄✨⭐️💫💫🌟🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃💃🕺🏻👯♂️👯💃🕺🏻💃👯♂️👯💃🕺🏻🚶🏼♀️👯
Shi, you make me 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣apparently the tai chi you do in the park can be used as a martial art if you speed it up (according to OH). I reckon you should try it out on the 👨🏻✈️
Not sure about joggers it sounds like we'll all be burning our bras and running around with our tits hanging low for rads! 😳😮😮
The doctor was a bit flummoxed by my rash. It is more or less just on my boobs 😮😮😮she had a prod and a poke of both boobs, pulled some 🤔😶😕faces and then gave me a 5 day course of antibiotics, antibiotic cream and some antihistamines. I'm a bit reluctant to take the antibiotics as all bloods and obs were ok. So I've decided to use the cream today and take an antihistamine and see how it looks tomorrow. If it's still there tomorrow I'll start the tablets. I still think it's probably heat related and may go of its own accord. Good to get it checked though.
cassie, could you use some of that deep freeze stuff that athletes use on your feet before bed? Don't know if that would react with any other meds but is usually for muscles aches but being cool might cool your feet.
Shi, perhaps you can use your tai chi 🥋🥋to sort the 🚂 👨🏻✈️ out! There's a cupboard full of 🔫🔫🔫🔪🔪🔪⚔️⚔️⚔️🏹🏹🏹at the back if the 🚂 for emergencies. Only someone in gold hot pants doing a Wonder Woman twirl can access it 🌟💫🌟💫🌟⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️🌈🦄🌈🦄
Oh dear, I do hope that the rash doesn't spread Meesh. Glad you're having it checked out and hope it will be as ok as can be.
Cassie, maybe a bowl of tepid water by your bed to put your feet into when they get too hot will help?
I get very very hot flushes where my clothes get soaked in sweat, and a cool water wash helps....most of the time!!
All the best.
Sue, stupid chemo brain, I keep thinking it's Thursday today! Karen how annoying to get a cold, hope you enjoy your Xmas shopping. Take it easy and try not to do too much. OH definitely needs a poke in the eye!
Ive just had a shower and noticed a rash across my chest and just under my boobs 😳😳😳😱😱😱Called the chemo team and they want to see me for bloods and to check it out. OH has just popped out with the car so will have to wait for him to get back 🙄I think it might be heat rash from all the hot flushes as temp was fine and I feel ok. They didn't seem too worried, better to be safe than sorry though eh?
Morning ladies, didn’t sleep too badly but have def woke up with a cough and cold 😱 gonna get in the bath and wrap up and go and do a little Xmas shopping still tho as I don’t feel ill it’s just annoying!! OH was do his annoying bit of moaning coz I’m not doing much work.....I think I may have to go from slapping him with wet 🐟 to poking hi. In the eye with a red hot needle!!!
I dont think it helps having a runny nose wen u have no nose hair either ☹️
Hope they say say you’re ok when u have ur bloods this morning Sue...has the ice and snow gone your way yet?
Meesh, my OH got in spare bed as I was restless apparently....lucky me!!
Hope everyone else is doing ok
Sue, hope the cough turns out to be nothing. I get a bit of a cough every now and again over the last cycle nothing bad just a bit annoying. Was going to mention it to onc team when I went last week but it went so didn't and then it came back fir a bit yesterday has gone again now! 🙄
