Slightly depressing thought, in a couple of minutes time I won't be able to say that I'm 60 next year anymore! xx
Thank you so much for your kind words buddyfan and so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope your arm is feeling much better now x
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2019 xx
Hello everyone! Hope you all had good xmases. I enjoyed my soft cheese, just because I could eat it this year 😂 Buddyfan sorry to hear about your arm, how annoying but it's good to hear you're doing ok apart from that.
Mishy/ Shi, I can only imagine how you feel about your curly hair. You have to forget everything you know about your old hair and start again. It took me years to learn to accept mine and work out what to do with it and I was born with it 😂🤣😂 It's funny as people always say to me "oooh you're so lucky to have curly hair, I'd love mine to be curly". What people don't realise is that curly hair never looks tidy, there's always at least one bit that's not doing what you want it to, you just have to embrace that as tomorrow it'll be a different bit 😂 The good thing though is that it has plenty of body 😂🤣😂 here's something that I thought you might like, you might have to copy and paste the link as I'm not very good at technology!
Thank you Meesh x Can start enjoying Christmas a bit more now as although I have been,the CT scan has been at the back of my mind.
Have a lovely time with Karana and give her a hug from me x
Thank you Jill x Tbh, I still can't take it in really. I should stop worrying a bit now, but I've spent the last 18mths worrying about bc.
We met the mother of my daughter's friend at the chemo unit yesterday and she's got terminal lung cancer, so I found getting my good results rather bitter sweet. I was thrilled for myself, but felt so sad for this lady.
YD and I went and celebrated in a tearoom afterwards and had cream scones (they were huge and I enjoyed every mouthful! ) and when the lovely lady on the till heard our good news she didn't charge us! How kind was that! (ED said typical,YD offers to pay for once and then doesn't have to! ) x
Thank you Jelly tot x Good news, I was told yesterday that I'm in remission! I still can't really take it in that I haven't got cancer anymore having been diagnosed 18mths ago. The best Christmas present!
My chemo onc has now discharged me, which I wasn't expecting as I'm TN. I'd had the impression before that I would still see her for the first few years. I know that's a good sign, but I liked the reassurance of seeing her!
How are you? xx
Thank you Shi for your lovely message x I'm feeling quite anxious about seeing the onc this afternoon. I've had this scan hanging over me for the past 6mths, but hopefully they wouldn't have left it for so long if they were worried that rads hadn't zapped the last bit of cancer?! x
The foot massage was very relaxing Jill and I'm wondering if it might help a bit with the neurpathy I've still got in my toes x
Thanks Shi x I was also speaking to a lady this week (not on the forum) who has just had bc and she said she'd thought hers had been brought on by stress and I remember reading other ladies mentioning it on the forum.
I've now cut my hours at work to help alleviate some stress. Money is quite tight now, but it's worth it!
As well as my counselling, I've been having some free therapies from a local charity that Macmillan sorted out for me, which have been relaxing.The lovely lady comes to my house. I had a foot massage last week and having another one next week xx
Glad you haven't got mets Jill, but sorry you've got a rare bone disorder, it sounds painful.
I think my rads onc, with the agreement of my chemo onc, wanted to wait for the scan because if it was done too soon it could give a false reading with scar tissue. I'm hoping they wouldn't leave me that long if they weren't pretty confident that everything was ok! xx
Thank you Jill x It's been hanging over me a bit since I finished rads in June and makes it harder to move forward not knowing if I'm actually cancer free.
Hope you're ok x
Hi Shi, I was interested to read on another thread that you felt stress had contributed to your bc as I've always felt that it was a factor for me getting it and I'm TN too xx
Hi Chaffinch, thanks for your good wishes. I'm waiting for the results of a CT scan and will get them on Monday when I see my onc. I had it to check the few mm's of cancer that was behind my lump had gone. My onc said she'd be surprised if there was still anything there and I keep thinking surely they wouldn't have left me 6mths after rads finished before the scan if they were worried?! Even so,I'm anxious about the results xx
