Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hello girls, thank you for your lovely hugs and advice. I just wrote this poem:

 

No More Cake


5 years ago, it's oh so clear,
In the waiting room, the rising fear.
Walking into that stuffy room,
Increasing dread, impending doom.
I'm so sorry, the surgeon mumbled,
And my whole life began to crumble.

 

I made it though the treatment plan,
Got married to a wonderful man.
I'd been given a reprieve,
We'd picked our kids' names; Alfie, Niamh.

 

Every year upon this date,
I'd put a cake upon a plate,
Adding candles one by one,
Blowing them out, reflecting, another year done.
Another year of being me,
Another year of cancer-free.

 

In the blink of an eye, that all has changed,
My whole future rearranged.
Today there's no cake upon a plate,
There's no 5 years to celebrate.

 

My cancer is back, this time it's worse,
It's like I have some kind of curse.
Stage 4 (or mets) means there's no cure,
So a new plan I must endure.
Treat it for as long as they are able,
Keep it at bay, keep me stable.

 

The darkest thoughts inside my head,
I'd written myself off, I was already dead.
The oncologist dilutes my fears,
He says "you could have years and years".

There it is, the bubble of hope,
Something to cling on to, to help me cope.


So currently I'm being fried,
With radiotherapy to keep me alive.
They'll take my ovaries, an oophorectomy.
Will I feel less womanly, will I still be me?

 

Then move on to new hormone pills,
I'm hoping the side effects won't make me ill.
Constant monitoring, blood checking, scans,
Are all a part of my new plan.

 

As I find my new normal and readjust,
Forgive me, it'll take time to get it sussed.
"Eat Life" a wise friend once said,
I'll seize the now, for no-one knows what lies ahead.
I may have not made the magic five,
But I'm bloody thankful I'm alive.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hello all of you, I haven't posted in a while as I have been going downhill fast emotionally, I feel ashamed to say that. Bone pain has got so bad now in hips, lower back, I don't know whether it's the everolimus chemotherapy or the denosumab injections, anything I can take that would help????

thanks

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hi ladies. When I got in my car after it had been parked for 2 hours in the hospital car park the temperature read 41C! Ouch. Way too warm for me and for most of us.  Luckily the chemo ward was fairly cool with plenty of fans and a breeze through the window - its on the 5th floor so if theres any breeze going it will get it.  Chemo is going OK, thanks for asking Betty, and my scan results yesterday showed it is having a good effect on my pesky liver met (that grew on the last, unsuccessful treatment). It has shrunk but I'm not sure by how much until I get the report next week, it certainly looked, and measured, smaller on the scan itself on my onc's pc when I saw him yesterday. Everything else seems to be stable as well but I'll wait until I get the full low down before broadcasting it everywhere.

I've managed my daily lolly, currently on strawberry splits, and just about manage to eat it before the sun melts it.  Hoping for some cooler weather, especially at night.

Nicky x

ps Lovely to hear about Heidi, Janette, hope she is keeping cool as well!

Hello Nicky and Jeanette
Glad u popped in as everyone is fed up with me ...

Nicky
Glad u are coping well with the new chemo ..and enjoying the heat ..it's supposed to be changing by tomorrow.
Phew missed my afternoon nap as I've just got in from the funeral ...very short and sweet though ...bless at 94 ..not many still living to attend !

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Afternoon ladies, sorry for the absence (I'm sure I'll get detention from Carolyn!) Had family stuff going on plus it's been sooooo hot it leaves you feeling so tired......er not that I'm complaining though, we have to appreciate the sunshine while it's here!
Jellytot, I'm really sorry to hear that you are feeling down at the moment, it's totally understandable though, don't beat yourself up over, it's ok to feel down and angry with this disease, but you will feel stronger and more positive again soon.
Well we have a new addition to the family, Heidi our beautiful cavachon, so we are learning to adapt to having a dog around, finding it both scarey and exciting all at the same time (certainly taking my mind off the big C)
Stay cool ladies. Hugs Janette xxxxx

To Carolyn and all other sweaty Betty's - I hope you are coping with this heat. It's a scorcher here again today in Hampshire, a bit cooler last night but it's picked up very quickly and now it's right back up to scorchio! It's probably the only day I've ever looked forward to having the cold cap - sat here with it on right now and keeping very cool ha ha.

Hi to all newcomers, I've not been posting much over the past week or so, but have been reading like Marie-Louise. I see our own sweaty Betty has welcomed you though so all is good!

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hi jellytot

I just wanted to say that it's no wonder you are feeling low at the moment. You have been thrust into the world of secondaries which has been a shock as it is for all of us. At a time when you were hoping to hit that 5 year milestone (from primary BC) you find yourself not only having to deal with loads of hospital appointments but also the fact that you can't have children (apologies if I have that wrong but I'm sure it was you that said this). I was 6 months off my 5 year ' anniversary' and my oncologist had actually discharged me from her care as I was doing so well - it was the surgeon's appointment and mammogram 6 months after, and the last one I was due to have, that found my mets. So, from expecting to be released from all those appointments you find yourself having even more than most as you've had rads right from the start. It's so difficult when you see your fellow 'primary' friends being able to move on and it's no wonder you find it difficult to respond to their messages. Like FF I didn't use a forum or similar during primary BC (social media itself hadn't even started ha ha) but this forum has been such a lifeline to me and all of us. We can speak our minds, share our fears, voice our disappointments and generally have a good old moan when we need to and we know we will be understood - unlike with people who are not going through this. Take time to adjust, build in some special treats for days when you are not having to be at appointments and it's absolutely fine to feel sorry for yourself - we all do at times. Generally look after yourself, you will find a way of dealing with this, as we all have, it's not easy but things such as feeling lucky to be still here can and do happen. I have found over the years of having secondary BC I have become more selfish (on purpose!) as I choose to do the things that I want to do, not what everyone else wants me to do, and I do say 'no' to things I really can't be bothered with. For me it's spending time with my family and also those friends that I know are true friends, silly other events or occasions are really not important to me.  Sorry, this is me rambling on about what I think but I'm trying to say take time to accept what is happening and do what you want to do, not what others think you should do. That way you will hopefully find a way through this low point.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

hi carolyn ,

thanks for the tip about the dog's paws,funnily enough it has been on radio nottingham about the heat and how it effects your pets and this was one thing mentioned.

mia usually goes out 6 am until 7 am and 2 30 until 4pm she is taken by a gent my hubby used to work with and when hubby died he asked if him and his wife could do the dog walking,so he walked jaz my german shepherd i had at that time ,she then passed away with cancer and my son's immediately brought me mia the following day so never without a pet in the home,,,since then arthurs wife has also died from cancer and he is being treat for the disease in his prostrate but still never misses taking mia out so i am very grateful for that .

just starting to feel the hot sun now so going to move into the shade once more .

Just a warning to dog owners ..vets inundated with burnt paws after being walked on hot pavements ...went to sons last night ..their dog had his head in the freezer and was keeping cool ..he's also taken over ownership of the fan too !!

Re: Bone mets - please join in

morning carolyn,

not much better in bed last night ,but hey we are here and that'sthe main thing

you hit the nail on the head  exactly about people talking to the pusher ,annoy me so much as i will sit there and hear them ask ,why is she in the chair?the best one was ,does she have dementia,must admit i swore when i answered the stupid woman and both shocked myself and my son,but it did hurt me all that day ,we were in woolacombe and looking forward to a lovely day ,spoilt by an ignorant woman,but i have to also think of access etc when thinking of the property,but will get somewhere sometime no doubt ,just wish sons would go away and forget about me for two weeks but working on that and i will win in the end as working on a plan .

hope you are ok as you appear to keep this part of the site going with your cheerful mood and imagine all concerned look forward to reading your posts .

take care

Awwwww Jellytot, I'm sorry you feel separated from your friends, but glad you found us. With my primary I never felt the need for support, but when secondaries hit I was a frantic mess! I searched the internet for info and found this forum. Hang in there we have your back. 

 

Sweaty ladies, When we first moved here we didn't have AC. We were in our house about 15 years b4 we got our AC downstairs. It was about 20 tears b4 we got one upstairs in our room. I don't know how we stood it. Today it's 86F here and humidity is 40 with a slight breeze. Windows are open no fans or AC.! It's beautiful!! FF

Hi there Jellytot.

 

am so sorry you are feeling low and quite understand why. You had a peer group to share stuff with and now they all seem ok, so you feel you havent a lot in common. Xx

 

this weather IS too much for us and hospital visits are an intrusion...sorry you had to cancel your holiday. i nderstand that too.. have to attend two weeks out of every three for my Eribulin and have a oh who isnt really holiday orientated.xx have managed to snatch three nights away with him on Sunday, just for a change of scenery..have not had a holiday since three days in October! So I do understand.

 

we never know what lies ahead, do we? Your friends all seem to be hunky dory, hopefully that will continue, but most of us here are all adjusting to changes every now and then.....so even if we seem very ok with it, we arent always and you cam share with us.....we do understand xxx

hI carolyn,

just heard from betty's hubby she has shadow on lung so needs to see a specialist ,just told her not to worry as could be one of many things ,i have one on my lung which turned out to be something left from infection,but other one of course is the nasty one ,we will see it off together whatever it is and that's a certainty

 

so you lucky lady ,,living in devon,my son was down there last week but in cornwall ,we have visited all parts of devon i believe through the years ,both north and south and absolutely love both,my dream has been to live in LEE BAY,never going to happen now ,but would love to go back for a visit to all parts ,

you in my eyes are one lucky lady in that respect and i am so jealous of you.

Hi all

Very hot here in London but at least work has air con(not too great but better than nothing). It is the train journey home that is really uncomfortable.

Jellytot please don't despair I know exactly how you feel as I still have a little sob every day and feel like I am currently at one doctors appt or another but having just had a clear result from bone scan and CT I am starting to come to terms with it a bit more and be a normal as can be and good to know there is this formum as it gives me hope for being normal for a long time

A lot of hospital visits means your life is centred around appointments but it slows down and gets easier.

HijaCarolyn,

much cooler here today ,thank goodness

just had my friend betty who comes tuesday and thursday helps me with jobs i can not manage from my wheelchair ,tops of cupboards ,windows etc ,but not a happy person today ,she went for x ray on her chest and two weeks later sent her for another ,then this morning rung and told her to be at docs surgery at 2 30 for urgent appointment,so she is rather upset ,as tomorrow her husband has to see ,a eurologist,regarding his bladder which is a worry,in itself and also found out her greatgrandaughter who is four and has stge 1 diabetes,so not a good week is she having .

mia seems very lethargic today ,yet been fine during the really hot period ,just keeping an eye on her as not eaten her dinner or treats,so maybe a trip to the vets in on the cards ,we shall see.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hi Ladies,

I'm feeling low today, in 2 days time it would have been my 5 year anniversary of my primary diagnosis, I called it my cancerversary. I used to celebrate this day by doing something nice, this year I had planned a ten day holiday to Madeira with my best friend and our husbands and that has been cancelled because of treatment... I've made friends on Facebook through my young women support group and they are all posting at the moment about being discharged from oncology and celebrating their five year cancer free milestones. Although I would never ever begrudge them this, it's just hard to read as I wish beyond wish that it was me too. I think the heat and non-stop radiotherapy and hospital visits aren't helping but I just wish I wasn't in this pit of sadness. Once the hospital appointments slow to monthly, I think I'll gain new normal, it's just at the moment, all I think of every day is cancer ☹️ xx

Morning to all,  I hope you are all managing ok with this heat, it is cooler on the coast so I have managed to find a nice cool breeze in front of an open window.

 

I often read the posts on this forum and ask questions when I have concerns or worries and I just wanted to say thank you so much to the community champions/forum members, all of you swoop in when needed offering warmth, support, advice and good humour whenever anyone needs it.   To the lovely ladies too who take time to post their inspirational stories and good news, it truly does give me hope that I can live with this dreadful disease hanging over me.

 

Thats it really,  I just wanted you to know as someone who reads this forum frequently that is a great source of comfort to me.

hi ff,

no we dont have a c in our homes ,as far as i know,, not even the brand new builds as both my grandsons have just purchased their first homes and were out on sunday buying fans  so guessing not either.

myself i have a fan ,but that is mainly for my shepherd as she appears to be suffering a little ,yet she suddenly came to life last evening when grandson brought his 12 week rockweiler puppy to visit,as she flew around like an idiot chasing it ,then collapsed in front of the fan .

My son's have bought plug in a.c. units that are portable to.move around the house.
Got a better sleep last night with a fan blowing on my face ...
Obviously all our shops and offices have a.c. so very pleasant to step inside to when out.

Hi girls! Curiosity question. I see you all talking about fans. Do you not use AC? We don't have central AC. We have the window units one upstairs one down and use fans to circulate the air. We only use the AC on stinking hot humid days. Very careful of our $$$.

Carolyn, Bummer on the pizza! We don't eat fries very often, but get a craving for them on a Fri or Sat night sometimes. One of those nights every couple weeks we do a "bad dinner"! Pizza, hoagies (subs), etc. That's when I want fries! Most people here use ketchup on them. I love baked (jacket) potatoes especially off the grill when the skin is a little crispy.

 

Renee, It's really difficult to control things that make us anxious. I never heard the "robin saving" ! I wonder if we can reverse it if we put out bird feeders for them and hand materials in trees for them to use to make nests. My trees are going to be colorful with lots of yarn hanging in them!  I like "sayings and idioms"! My daughter took a test in first grade on sayings. It was for trying to teach them the difference in reality and fantasy.They had to write what the saying meant. For it's raining cats and dogs she wrote it's raining cats and dogs. She got everyone wrong. Lol this test came home with a big note attached of how the teacher had never had a student do so poorly on this. My daughter's response to this was we don't use sayings in our house. Poor girl has never lived that down!! She is 31 and we still point out it's a saying.  She had said I knew it doesn't rain cats and dogs but I didn't know what it meant, so I didn't know what to write.

 

Moijan, Fans and AC running full blast!! Very hot and humid! Supposed to have torrential down pours and high straight line winds. Almost every time we get this type of storm we lose trees and power for days. Fingers crossed! Ok, need to get moving and get ready for work. I'm the best at procrastinating!

190066 The other was A 14" floor fan. 39.99 and its brilliant in my bedroom at night. These made a big difference since yesterday as my house is boiling.

Well the pizza was ok ..nothing special really for the price. I think here in UK ..a lot more are falling out of love with chips/fries ..even my grandkids go for pasta and jacket potatoes ...but u can't beat real ones with vinegar out of paper at the beach !!
I googled the boardwalks. .there are very similar to what we call piers here ..most of ours are very old now and need a lot of maintenance but its tradition to have them ...

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hi Carolyn.

just read your post and had a laugh ,not funny at the time but my late hubby years ago had the hiccups and they went all day long and right through the night ,we had tried every old wives tale in the book,plus modern remedies but to no avail ,i sent for the doc when the surgery opened and he had been having them by then around 27 hours total ,plus was beginning to feel really ill with them ,the doc said he would call after morning surgery around 1pm ,well he arrived about 12 30 and he still had the hiccups when i answered the door ,but from the doc speaking to him they just went as quickly as they came ,we felt such fools ,and quite honestly i think the doc thought we had done it as a prank as he was far from ammused.,luckily it never happened again .i am waiting for ambulance to take me for ct scan so getting all worked up which is normal for me ,the least little thing that is different sends me into panic mode ,i do try to keep calm but never works ,just hoping everything is ok but will soon know on friday when see oncologist,and he may shed some light onto these spots which are slowly spreading

my mum had a saying that if we were having bad luck ,,,,we had killed a robin?? where that came from i dont know ,but if she was correct i reckon i must have killed a nest of them,haha

take care  all you lovely ladies .

Carolyn, You made me hungry! Love me some Pizza Hut. There is only two out of four Pizza Huts left that we could reasonably get too, the others closed. Only one of the two is a dine in. Lots of them have closed across the states over the years! I love a meat lovers pan pizza and bread sticks. 

 

I love Mc Donald's fries, but love homemade ones the best. You call them chips! In my area if you cut them up and don't peel them, they are called boardwalk fries. They were named after them selling them at the Jersey shore on the boardwalk. The boardwalk is a walkway along thee beach with stores, amusement rides, mini golf, on it. I believe New Jersey beaches and Maryland are the only ones with boardwalk here. If you want to see it Google Ocean City, NJ and Ocean City Maryland, or Wildwood, NJ.

Carolyn.......I agree with you about the phew factor tody! Phew! Earlier on I was dizzy with the heat. I went to Wickes........stupid.......and deeply regretted it. Anyway, home now and I've eaten one of little Anna's 'Rocket' ice lollies from the freezer. Her favorite. Well, I'll buy some more for her next visit. Needs must.

 

I hope my post about skin helps Renee. Skin is unpredictable, mets that is. They don't 'present' in an organised way! No leaflets about them. I think BCC should put together even a thin one.  A starting point. They can behave differently too. But I read on here recently that someone's skin bumps disappeared completely on a new treatment. Good.

 

Getting cooler. It was almost 90 in the shade behind my garage earlier on. Hotter tomorrow, so no visits to Wickes! Or anywhere else. I have one Rocket  left.

 

Expert? You are an expert in making us all laugh, Carolyn! Keep cool. Apologies for my typos..........
