Hi Sam, when I had my CT and bone scan I had to wait 3 weeks for the results-the longest 3 weeks of my life! I've had another CT scan since to see if a lymph node had shrunk and the results were with my onc when I saw her 3 days later. I might be wrong, but I would have thought if there was anything to worry about, you would have been contacted by now because they obviously can process the results quicker xx
Ruth, 😂🤣😂🤣😂loved the 💩🦄 made me proper laugh!
Evening ladies! Had another busy day today what with work, rads and kitchen fitting going on.
Rach, do you reckon it's the tamoxifen that's making you grumpy?
Buddyfan, I'm just over 6 weeks post chemo and mine is still coming out a little bit but is also growing quite a bit too. I actually wore some mascara today and tried my eyelash curlers but a couple of lashes came out so will probably give that a miss for now. I didn't lose all my lashes during chemo but what's left is fairly sparse and some are long and some are short. I'm going to sort my leave out tomorrow so will let you know when I can get off.
Ahhh, that is a beautiful photo Cassie, you both look very happy. Lovely to see.Imagine it was a beautiful day, for lots of reasons. So glad you got through your treatments..Well done to both of you.
Hi ladies. I havent posted for a bit but ive still been checking in. Last friday was my little sisters wedding. It was amazing. It also marked my 6 weeks since chemo milestone and I danced my legs off in celebration. Heres a pic of me and the man who has kept me sane, looked after me, and also given me a kick up the bum when ive needed it.
October Ladies (especially Shi!)
Saw this unicorn and thought of you all yesterday, Love Jay68 (May2017)
Karen, well done you for your night out, I'm not going to even ask why you were trying to do the splits 😂🤣😂 I remember doing cartwheels and handstands in the garden with my 2 little cousins about 10 years ago. The next day I woke up feeling like someone had beaten me up in the night and couldn't work out why at first. I ached everywhere 😂
Jencat, I had a bad tummy on my 5th cycle and I think that was due to a mix of chemo, meds, antibiotics, injections and virus. i think my body had just had enough of everything that was being put in it and was trying to purge itself as quick as possible.
I've had goodness knows how many hoovers over the last 20 years, they just don't seem to last very long in our house at all (I'm not a hoovering maniac in case you're all wondering). I had one dyson but wasn't impressed with it, I've had vaxes for the last 7 years. Sorry I don't know what an iron is? 😂🤣😂
Jencat - if it's Docetaxol chemo - then yes I did! Only A&E visit I made whilst on chemo (as I was extremely fortunate) was due to excessive diarreah after 1st of these (I'd previously been on EC which has the opposite side effect!) - and after tests etc it was confirmed it was due to the chemo!
It could also be worsened by the antibiotics, as they can cause stomach problems on their own!
My advice is to drink plenty of water to re-hydrate and maybe some flat coke cola and slices of fresh apple. Otherwise just bland stodgy foods....! ergh horrible days now in my memory bank thankfully!
Keep strong for the final lot of side effects xx
Morning everyone, hope you all have a lovely day today x
Sorry to lower the tone a bit, but did any of you have upset stomachs when you were on chemo and if so, how long did it last for? Got a feeling some of you did? Not had this on any of the other cycles, had the opposite! I'm eating bland food,which is difficult, tastes even more like cardboard!
Got the hospital tomorrow for a line flush, (still got PICC in, haven't said when they're taking it out yet!) so will mention it then if it's still a problem, but it's getting me down a bit now. Seems with this last chemo that as soon as I feel better from one SE, another comes along to take it's place! Although the upset stomach could also be a SE of the antibiotics I only finished last Tues as it was a bit upset with the previous antibiotics I took or perhaps it's a comination of the two! Thank goodness that was my final round of chemo xx.
Morning ladies just had a quick read thru the thread and trying to catch up!! I so understand the excitement of getting a new Hoover...I really need to get one...I use a Henry to clean pub but he’s def on his last legs and need replacing!!
Buddy your FIL sounds amazing!!
i went to bed at 930last night as was exhausted after night out on Friday....think I forgot for a little while that I’ve been poorly! My hip and knee hurt this morning, must’ve been the dancing or maybe me trying to do the splits 🤪 Didnt sleep too well was very restless!!
Gonna take younger son to work this morning...my dad has been doing it on a Sunday but he’s still struggling to get car out of his drive so I said I would as need to get OH something for his birthday (which is tomorrow 😱) we going a bit earlier so we can go to Costa first!
OH was very quiet and thoughtful looking when he got home from footy....think his sister may have had a word with him as he said she cld tell from my messages that I’m struggling a bit 😱 she’s quite good at getting him to see what’s right in front of him!!
whats everyone got planned for today?
Runnerbean, after all we've been through over the last 6-9 months I can understand you getting excited about a new Hoover! Sorry to hear about your neighbour I think you're right all you can do is keep offering to take her shopping as she may get fed up of getting a taxi after a while or maybe she'll run out of money first 😂
Buddyfan, your FIL sounds like a really strong man and it's good to hear OH is on the mend I hope he can sort those radiators out and you can get yourself nice and warm.
Fairydust, I keep thinking about going out in the cold but I then think errrm no I don't think so! 😂I'm going to use the excuse that the snow is all falling off the roof and so it's a death trap 😂
Wow, Buddyfan, your FIL sounds like a superhero..what is his superhero name..??
Glad your OH is doing well, hope you're ok too..
I was toying with building a snowman (just for a nice exercise to do), but then said no. 🙂
Reading in bed instead and then will play a computer game, as I like to do.
However, will join a cancer rehabilitation scheme soon as I still get breathless and have a dodgy hip, I think from chemo, so need to sort these out. Am going through rads at the moment, first week done, so far so good..
Hope all you ladies have a lovely day.
Morning ladies, morning Claire!
Well its it's snowed here overnight and everything is covered again, so glad I don't have to worry about going anywhere today 😊
Hope you ladies are managing to stay stay safe and warm. OH had cleared the patio of snow (don't ask me why, I have no idea just another pointless thing, i think to put off painting the kitchen ceiling) and is now out there doing it again 🙄
Whats everyone got planned for today?
