Sharon, I'm really sorry to hear your news, I echo what the other ladies have already said though, don't give up hope (easy for me to say!) Stay strong, there are lots of treatments out there.
Sending you a huge cyber (((((hug)))))
Sorry to hear your news Sharon
Hopefully your scan will show good results it is so disheartening when oncs talk in a negative way. As Carolyn suggests why not ask about trials maybe you could be eligible for one of these.
Sending you loads of (((((((((hugs)))))))))) and love xxx
Oh Sharon, of course you are scared, I think any of us would be but don't despair, the scans may show that it's been working, there may be different options, are you hormone positive? I know of women who have successfully revisited hormone treatments. A second opinion can always be sought and that might bring fresh eyes and new ideas about possible other treatments/trials. Don't lose hope my lovely. Sending you a huge hug and loads of strength xx
Sharon, I would be scared too! Refresh me, have you been through many chemos? Do you want to quit treatments? How about a second opinion? Only you know how you feel! Gentle Hugs! Hoping your scan shows improvement. FF
Just off to the hospital in a few mins I cannot believe how well I feel I have slept well no pain it's all unbelievable hope it lasts if last week was anything to go by it won't last.
I am on Paclitaxel (Taxol) I must admit I don't have confidence in it but it seemed best of the three. Time will tell.
Love and (((hugs))) to all xxx
Marirose, Pleased to read that you were feeling really well today. Good luck with your 2nd cycle tomorrow (I've forgotton what you are having now). Hopefully your body will slowly get used to being messed about and so less post cycle pain. Take care,
Carolyn, Almost 10 here the OK witching hour! Guess I'm going to melt or go poof! I have the music on, big old over sized sweat shirt and cleaning away. It's my favorite cleaning outfit. Hope nobody stops by!
Thanks for asking Carolyn
I feel really well today tomorrow is my 2nd cycle i have just got back from getting my bloods done. I seem to be getting more joint pain and muscle pain 2 days after treatment lst week I couldn't walk at all well but mobilty came back at the weekend. But some of that could also be down to MS it may not like the chemo messing up the muscles.I have not used any electric on my hair and all seems well up to now but tomorows cycle is when it is supposed to wave goodbye we will see I am still going to get a wig though my hubby wants me to become a red head I mean RED (in his dreams I'm not having that he can have the temper that goes with red heads though)
Well onwards and upwards love and (((hugs))) to all xxx
I have never stopped having my flue jab been on Denosumab nearly years no trouble.
Love and (((hugs))) xxx
Hope everyone is doing OK (hope you are enjoying being at home, Sharon!).
My dumping ground is not the dining table - it's the seat beside me on the sofa! My sister hates the way I let junk accumulate there, but it means it's all handy when I want something. I do generally have a bit of a tidy up when visitors are coming (people who just drop in without notification have to take it as it is!). So, dining table totally clear!
My dining table is the dumping ground when I come home from work! My job working with the dementia clients at the senior center means I create a lot of fun activities. This means I'm always carrying things in and out. When I get home I'm exhausted, so I drop it all there! Since I only work 3 days, I can clean it up the very next day when I'm off. Well, That's what I'm supposed to do, until something else happens! I now have a mess! Pirate stuff from murder mystery, Western day decorations, left over papers to wrap hobbies in, and starting to work on Oktoberfest. Today when my children pick up their pets, clean up is the plan. Lol right now I have four dogs here and if I move I look like the Pied Piper with my followers!!
Stoke! I've been exercising for 7 weeks and other changes. I make one small change every Monday and then must continue with it. I have lost 1 1/4 stone. Some of my changes have been add another exercise, increase each one by 2, no soda before noon, must get out of chair once per hour, drink 6 cups of liquid (1/2 must be water). My change this past week was the water. This past week I also decided to get strict for a week. Breakfast and lunch were to be uniform every day, dinner was back to basics! Breakfast was yogurt every day, lunch was a salad, grapes, and 2 oz of cheddar cheese. Dinner was a small portion of meat, lots of veggies, a startch. No snacks and no seconds allowed. Practicing get away from the table. It was rough because hubby made a home made cake! It is in a long cake pan with a slide on metal lid. I can't see the cake and told myself don't even open that lid! I haven't even had a crumb. All this paid off because I lost 5 lbs so far this week. Trying to come up with a change for next week. I feel stronger all over. Also when J started I couldn't do one sit up. I am up to 15!!
Dear Sharon, this is especially for you!!! Sing it any time whne you are down,, that is the song which is encouraging me. Hope that such type of links can be posted in this forum.

I have had a chemo break enforced on me and i have to say i feel so much better than i did..i dont know though whetherbnits de to that or the fact that i had been so ill previous to that. We are all behind you whatever your decision. Much love. xxx

Hi Sharon, so sorry to hear you are struggling at the moment, you really have been through the mill lately, and it's no surprise that you are down! Stay strong, all your "cyber friends" are behind you holding your hand.
Hugs (((()))) Janette xxxx
Sharon, Some times it can take a few doses before you learn how to counter act all the side effects.It would be good to talk with the professionals for advice. Be careful not to throw in the towel too soon, maybe it can be sorted. Only you know how you feel, all we can do is encourage you! Hang in there! Hugs and hoping you can get turned around! FF
So sorry to hear you are feeling so down I do hope you get some satisfaction at the hospital tomorrow. The Macmillian nurse is insensitive surely she could have given you an appointment on the phone.
Sending you loads of (((((hugs))))) xxx
