Oh Aneeebel, just read though your post again. My brain is a bit wonky today! 🤪 All I can say when I had my first Echo, it was torture. The technician was a sadist, she kept jabbing her wand between my ribs for what seem like ages, so if you were feeling rough I can only imagine how distressing it was for you especially as you have so much on your mind!
Keep strong, 💪💪
Morning lovely ladies. First of all many thanks for your lovely messages, they certainly helped me though a difficult day.
Now awake and feeling pants! In bed by 6.30 yesterday, just couldn’t cope anymore, left DH to fend form himself last night for food, so no idea what state the kitchen will be in. 🙀. He made me a cup of tea earlier so hopefully he had a quick tidy up🥴.
We have SNOW! Now, you folk who are used to “proper “ snow will say it’s more a heavy frost, but it’s a start! Sar_ah you must be further west of me (north Essex, Cambs, herts border) and missed our light dusting. 😉.
Good news Fiona that you’ve got your op date. It’s good that things are moving forward. My Herceptin jabs will restart 3 weeks after my next chemo and will carry on regardless when I have my op. Aneeebel, I do hope you get your date soon. The wait for news must be torture!
Elliesmum, I hope you are doing ok too.
Hi Sar_ah....it is bloody scary....we're bound to have 'moments' when we think we're going to lose our marbles! Hope you feel a bit better today....now you've had chance to think about things! 🎀😘🌼
I feel soooooooooooo sick... That's what happened at the hospital yesterday...went ridiculously hot and sweaty and nauseous...it wasn't particularly the Echo...I just can't walk anywhere without feeling ill! And my stomach has decided to go dodgy!!!! 💩💩💩💩💩 Where's the Loperomide!!!! 😳😫
ElliesMum...how are you doing? Hope the s/e are being kind to you! 🎀💐
💜Fiona and Badboob... Hopefully you're doing okay.... 🎀💐
Its snowed overnight in Preston.... I don't think I'll be building a snowman but it looks quite nice through the window!!!! ⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️
Have a good day everyone, take care xx 😘
Wow Fiona... Lots of info, but good that you know where you're up to! 🎀💗 And fab news about your rads...glad it's going to be easier for you!
I'm waiting for my appointment to come through the post!
Ive been for my echocardiogram this afternoon.... I decided, in my infinite wisdom, to go on my own....how the heck I didn't pass out I really don't know!!! I went so nauseous and unwell and as white as a ghost... 😳😳😳
All the best Sar_ah... Thinking of you X 🎀
Hopefully, all you lovely Ladies are well....
Stay strong X 💪🏼😘🎀
Glad we are all trying to be positive this bright Monday morning😉. Nice to hear from you again Sar_ah, sorry to hear you are having other issues, just goes to show that life doesnt give us a break while we are dealing with this cancer rubbish!
My day will be trying to shove 3 litres of water down me so we don’t have to play “hunt the vein” tomorrow 😂 and I am going to blitz the house so that I don’t have to bother when I’m feeling rubbish. But no doubt I will have to sit down for a bit to catch my breath at some point. I got DH to get a load of logs in from the shed yesterday, not without some moaning...bless him😘 so I can get the wood burner fired up when the snow is excepted here on Wednesday and just chill out! (Don’t tell Mr Gove) I can feel you northern people roll your eyes about us soft southerners making such a fuss about a few centimetres of snow. 😂 But we love it! Hopefully there will be enough snow to go for a nice walk across the fields and enjoy the winter scene.
Right, I must get out of bed and clean the bathroom!
Morning Ladies.... 🎀🎀
Thankyou Sar_ah for thinking about us....
I'm sure you've got enough on your plate at the moment, hopefully things will improve soon!
ElliesMum... How are you feeling?
💜Fiona...hope you're continuing to feel well!
What about you Badboob...how are you?
I didnt do anything yesterday...unbelievably tired... Slonked about all day and went to bed at 8.30!!! 😴💤😴💤😴
Have a good day everyone, stay strong! 😘💐
Apparently Elliesmum the first dose is a loading dose, which means it a double dose and Ali said you should let your unit know you've been feeling so rough-if you want to know more I'm sure Ali49 would be happy to help x
Elliesmum, I asked on the Oct '17 thread for you about Herceptin+T and Ali49 has replied and said you need to let your unit know, apparently the first dose is a double one xx
I don't feel too bad at the moment Thankyou 💜Fiona... Just a bit nauseous and so tired/airy fairy.... although, I have been awake since 4 am!!! 😳😴
I'm currently slonking in bed trying to decide if I have the energy to go to my allotment for a walk!! Can I be bothered!!!
I also appear to be developing a cough/cold....I just hope it's not my hubbys man flu!!!! 🙄🤒😷😳
Take care everyone X 🎀
Elliesmum, I'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling so poorly. I can't help re sickness with T+herceptin as I only had T on it's own and tbh I wasn't sick at all on FEC or T. (I'm only just realising how very fortunate I was) I'll ask on the Oct'17 thread and see if I can find out any info from there for you xx
Oh Elliesmum how scary for you! I didnt have any nausea with T, but was warned that EC would make me sick. They gave me Emend to take. In the end I can only say it was very mild.
my only observation is that as we are all full of chemo drugs we don’t know how our poor battered bodies are taking the strain. I have woken this morning with my limbs feeling as though they are ten times heavier than normal and had to drag myself out of bed to go to the loo! And I am meant to be at the top of my cycle! 😂😂. Please take your temperature to make sure you haven’t got a fever as your sickness may be due to something else!
Let us know how you get on.
Elliesmum, you could always celebrate the end of chemo at the end of this cycle and you're finished with se's x
Wow WhyteFawn, that doesn't seem possible that it's over a year since you finished chemo! (I was a bit behind all the Oct '17 ladies) Hope you're doing well xx
Good Morning Ladies.... Hope you're all well! 🎀
Thankyou for all your lovely messages....chemo went smoothly, although I went so nauseous and headachey when I got home... My hubby has had Man Flu...I just hope I'm not coming down with that!!! 🤒🤒🤒 I didn't even drink my celebratory bottle of beer....was in bed at 8.30!! 😴😴
You'll all be on your last chemos soon....it's a marvellous feeling!! 🎉🎉🎉
With regards to my mastectomy...I'm slowly coming to terms with it, a lot of screaming going on inside my head but I know it's for the best! Still gutted tho!!! 💔
Thankyou everyone for thinking of me! Just got to wait for my surgery date to come through now!! 😥
ElliesMum... I hope everything went okay for you yesterday... (I did put a message on here for you... I don't want you to think I'd forgotten it was your last chemo too!!! 🎉🎉🎉) Fingers crossed the side effects are kind to you x 💪🏼🎀
Shi....thanks for ringing the bell!!! 🛎🛎🛎🎉🎉🎉
Have a good day everyone... My Grandaughter and I are off to do The Birdwatch later...binoculars are at the ready!! Ha! 🐦 No doubt we'll be taking a picnic with us too... We live life on the edge!! Simple things suit us tho.... 💗👧🏼👵🏼 X
Good luck ladies on your last chemo today🚀🎈🎈🎉🎉⚡️⚡️. I will be thinking of you. Saw my oncologist yesterday so go to go with no 6 on Tuesday!
Aneeebel, I really feel for you and your op. I really don’t understand why some of us are recommended just a lumpectomy and others a mx! I asked my surgeon three times was he sure that a lumpectomy was ok rather than a mx, he was clear that a mx was unnecessary, so I think we must trust the experts. But I can imagine how you are feeling now. ☹️ But, I am terrified that this horrid disease will return and if a mx was going to stop that then I would have no hesitation.
Hows everyone’s nails? Mine are DISGUSTING! I have to tape five of them every day and I rub bio oil into them. I am finding it hard to use my fingers which is really peeing me off ( sorry for the language 🙀) .
Anyway, sending hugs to you all.
