It's a year ago today that I started chemo, that doesn't seem possible! I've still got some neuropathy in my fingers and toes and lack stamina, but otherwise I'm ok. I'm back at work now, but on a Phased Return, which has helped. I was worn out by playtime the first week!
Love to you all xx
love this poem, makes me think of all you lovely ladies and the bond we have 💕💕

This thread is for anyone who is about to start chemo next week.
Hopefully you can all help and support each other as you go through your treatment.
I had chemo last year, so I will try and help as much as possible. If you have any questions please ask and if I don't know, I can at least point you in the right direction of who to ask!
Hiya lovely ladies
Just popped in to say hello. Recovering well from my hysterectomy and had my staples out today so that is another milestone. Having a very very lazy Sunday as it has exhausted me plus I didnt have a good night sleep last night. Got to remember it is not even a week since I had surgery, patience Lady B patience.
Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.
You moan away mate.
Know what you mean, because of what we have been through they are always ultra careful with us but that only causes us to go into panic mode and think the worst xxx
I am ok. I am going into hospital on Tuesday again for a hysterectomy, the last time was cancelled because I had a chest infection, so fingers crossed for Tuesday. I am having similar fears, what if it is something more than the tamoxifen has made the lining of my womb thicker etc., but I just have to get myself back in check which is not always easy xxx
Have you had DSE assessment done on your working environment to make sure that it is nothing there that is causingexascerbating the discomfort in your shoulder.
Let me know how you get on, I am going to be in hospital for 2/3 days but will keep in touch with the forum whilst in there
Shi, I'll try not to stick my legs out of the window next time, unless it's really hot again 🤣🤣🤣 We could go to Liverpool 😊
Sending everyone ❤️ ❤️ and 🤗 🤗🤗 for your chemoversaries over the next few weeks. Anyone watching strictly? 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯♂️👯👯♂️👯🕺🏻💃🕴🏻
Oh the image that comes to mind, and especially for you here are the strictly pair in celebration And you think you are the loon!!
Good to hear that apart from the uti, which I am sure will sort itself out in time, you are feeling so good and positive, that is a big help.
Sending you hugs
Hello ladies! Haven't been on for a while as OH has had me locked in a cage on The seafront 😂🤣😂 No, I've been on holiday in Ireland. It was absolutely lovely.
Buddyfan your holiday sounds amazing and sounds like you really made the most of it. As for the hair, unfortunately curly hair can grow outwards for sometime. You have to go through the clown phase first then all of a sudden it will start to drop. My OH said I look like a sheep 🐑 the other day and my haircut is not due for another 2 weeks 😕 Mine is still shorter on top then pre-chemo but I don't think anyone but me would know that.
Paulus, not sure if you're still reading our thread, but I'm glad I made you laugh. As Sue said us Oct ladies laughed and danced 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃our way through chemo, it's the only way.
I can't believe it's a year since we all met on this forum. You are all such marvellous crazy ladies, especially you Shi 😘 the journey would not have been the same without you. And Mishy you're right Karana's hair is amazing, she's bleached it and it looks fab.
Just wanted to say thank you for your good wishes for last Friday when I went back to work. I was exhausted by playtime! I had a good morning though, but found it tiring. It's bound to be like that for a while though, I haven't worked since last October! x
