Ali, yeah no more chemo for you hoorah you're done! 🔔🔔🔔🎊🎉🎊🎈🎈🎊🎉🎈🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃💃🛎🛎🛎🛎 It us such a relief when you know you won't need to go through that again and excellent news that it's worked. Now you can move to the op carriage with Cassie and rest up and get rid of those nasty SEs.
Buddyfan, please let us know you're ok. Me and Karen will be discussing another meet up today and we'd love you to come.
The tune today ladies is Michael jackson's "Don't stop til you get enough" in honour of Ali who has had enough and Jencat and Ruth who still have last chemo left. 💫🌟⭐️🌟✨✨⭐️🌟⭐️💫🌟⭐️🌈✨⭐️🌈🦄🤗🦄🤗👅🐧👅🐧👅🐧
Have a good day ladies, I'm off to Norwich with a list of things to buy, do you think I can still use the steroids as an excuse? 😂
Morning ladies....just a quickie as gotta leave early this morning for rads planning appoint at 830...it’s freezing here too...then meeting Meesh for lunch in Norwich 😊
Ali that’s fab news...no more chemo...whoop whoop!! Buddy hope you have a better day today and not in so much pain 😘 Cassie hope you slept ok and also not in pain and you manage to get home and get some yummy food!?
Everyone else have a super fab day and keep warm 😘
Thank you Meesh. Still feeling uncomfy with uti, so think it was right thing that chemo was cancelled. Hospital didn't phone back with new date, so I'll have to phone them in the morning xx
Fairydust, thank you I'll have a look at that. Bamboo pjs 🤔Like the sound of them might have to look for some of those too!
Buddyfan, definitely get yourself checked out. Mine was 37.8 and they wanted me to go in and get it checked out. Wishing you better ❤️❤️❤️🤗🤗🤗
Buddyfan - go and get yourself checked out at A&E - 39.4 is the highest you should allow in a healthy adult before seeking immediate medical attention. Don't wait any longer x
Hi Meesh, I ordered it from www.livebetterwithcancer.com
It's all products to support with cancer or chemo side effects. Lots of choices for all you need. Stocked up on muscle balm too. Will buy some bamboo pjs soon.
Jencat, good to hear from you, sorry you've not had many good days, hopefully you'll get a few more with chemo being delayed. The 🚂 👨🏻✈️will be happy to have a whole week off, he'll have no excuse next week for any naughtiness! 😊
Buddyfan sending ❤️❤️❤️and 🤗🤗🤗 sorry to hear you're suffering with pain. Did you say that's your chemo arm too? I wonder if some of it is also due to the vein pain some of us have been suffering after the last chemo. Hope the loratadine and extra oak killers help sort it for you.
Fairydust, I might try one of those heat/ cold body wrap things, where did you get it from?
Hope everyone has had good days. Mine was ok considering I was at work, it's sort of nice being back to some sort of normality and people saying they're happy to see me back is really nice.
So whoever posts first in the morning gets to pick the tune for the day! Shi, I love the cheesey tunes! 😘
Hi Buddyfan, so sorry about your bone pain. It's hell I'm sure. For my milder pain I have a lavender microwave able body wrap which goes over and soothes aching joints and bones. I've just realised I can also put in freezer and use as cold compress for my hot flushes, that's a bonus for me. Could work for yours too Meesh? However, wishing you all the best with your painkiller regime Buddyfan. Hope it works x
Cassie, a little late perhaps so sorry. Hope you're doing ok with op today. Thinking of you.x
Hi Jencat. Thanks for updating on your progress but sorry about your side effects and chemo delay. Hope your condition improve. You're doing the right thing switching off from the world,living in your bubble for a while. Just rest and do the best for you. We're here when you return. X
Hope all doing ok. Did you get much emails sorted out Ruth?
My side effects are kicking in but not quite as bad as last time possibly due to reduced dose. Antibiotics and fluconozole at the ready and Epsom salt baths, lavender body wrap to hand and painkillers for excessive bone pain due to injections. Hope for the best. Am teary but probably more out of relief of no more chemotherapy than anything else. We all did it! Aren't we amazing!
Hope your delivery man liked your Wonderwomen Pjs Karena!! :-)
Chaffinch, sorry to hear your suffering. Hope tonight goes better for you though. X
Love to all, Shi, CK, Runnerbean, Rach, Mishy, Reboot, everyone!!
Hi Chaffinch hope your starting to feel a bit better....have you tried the Biscopan tablets they helped when I kept getting stomach cramps....I still have to be careful what I eat...I can’t do rich creamy food at all which I do love 😬
I may have a look at the H&M vests Shi although I do find there clothes come up really small so not sure I’ll get into them!!
Hello everyone and thank you for your nice messages!
Sorry I've not been on for a while, but I have been thinking of you all! x
Had my last chemo 3 weeks ago, but SE's really took it out of me for the first couple of weeks with pains in legs and feet and just no energy and sleeping a lot.
My phone's been playing up and I don't seem to be able to receive many messages! (ED and YD trying to sort it out for me! It's fairly basic, hence another reason I haven't been on here as no internet on phone, so have to log on to my laptop, which isn't always great either!) Anyway, YD suddenly got lots of messages checking I was ok as they couldn't get hold of me! So been trying to catch up with them as I didn't want people to think I was ignoring them, but I often haven't had the energy to reply anyway!
I should have had my last chemo this afternoon, but have had a uti for the last few days and not feeling too good. (I had it a couple of weeks ago, but thought I'd managed to get rid of it! Obviously not!) Spent most of last night going (or not going!) to the loo! I'm on antibiotics now, so hopefully they'll start making a difference soon. Phoned up chemo unit this morning and they said they din't want to give me chemo whilst not feeling well, so I'm waiting to hear back from them with a new date. I think it could be next Wednesday as chemo seems to be delayed a week at my unit. So didn't end up with a 'good' week, just a few days!
Sorry you're not feeling well Chaffinch and Buddy, hope your symptoms improve soon xx
I’m loving this tune this morning and with the change of words it’s fab!! https://youtu.be/Sa-EwG1LMW0
Ali hope u get that rash sorted soon hunny
Meesh glad to hear your work colleagues have been so supportive and glad to hear that your memory has its blips too 😂
cassie....we will all be thinking of you today and be right behind you ready to give the 👨⚕️ stick if he causes any trouble...fingers crossed you get out today and you get fed something nice 😘😘
I also read that book by Emma Flannigan......I read it while on holiday last year after I’d had my lumpectomy and before I started chemo....such an amazing woman but how she’s managed to go thru chemo so many times is beyond me...I follow her on fb and she’s still quite poorly but always manages to stay so positive...she’s just released a new book so maybe another holiday read!!
It has snowed a bit over nite but just a little fluffy coating....it’s so cold tho!! OH is off to Wembley for footy tonite so hope the weather isn’t too bad as need him to get back for my rads planning in the morning!!
The man comes to empty fruit machine this morning and I’m not gonna be dressed before he gets here so Wonder Women is gonna greet him 😂
Whats everyone got planned today??
