Good luck miss catlady. Its iribuiln isn't it? I have heard great things about it. Fingers crossed. Look after yourself I'll keep you up to date with the parp inhibtor trial i am going on - starts next wednesday, its always good to have a couple of options. Please do not suffer with your pain. The hospital has to sort it out for you! They have excellent pain management strategies now. xxx
Good luck today Helen and I do hope as the others have said you can get some pain mamagement sorted for you as you should not have to suffer as you are. But hopefully you will get such amazing results ( I know others who have) from the new regime which will make you feel better almost straight away. big hug xx
Wishing you well today. It is always scary starting a new chemo. I think it is fear of the unknown! I'm sure you will cope well with it and that it will work really well.
Hope they can get your pain under control too. You have suffered too long. Maybe they can refer you to a pain management team.
Thinking of you. Lots of love Sheila. Xxx

just about to go to the marsden for a full ct scan - including brain - prior to starting on the parp trial. scary!!!

Hi lynnq, have a great holiday. I'm jealous!!! The weather should be much warmer than here in the north of England. (I'm from Lancashire) enjoy your wine. I'm sure you will be fine.
Lots of love Sheila. Xx
Enjoy any breaks you have planned & I hope treatments are going well for you all. I have just had my 6th docetaxol & am hoping it is the last - CT on 3/3 & results on 11/3......fingers crossed.
Take care, love Helen x
Morning ladies, I hope everyone had a good weekend.
Helen, I'm glad to hear you have got CDF approval, or will have, for Eribulin. Enjoy your week away in Chester and regenerate your batteries ready for Friday when you start. I hope you do get your pain sorted and are able to speak with one of the nurses whilst you are in the chemo ward I'm sure someone there will be able to help.
Take care everyone and I hope all appointments, results, scans, treatments etc go well.
Desi, I have an itch which could be due to denusanab. Not sure but I think it may be causing my runny eyes too. Am still waiting for scan of head to make sure it isn't something more sinister but onc doesn't think it is.
Hope you are soon feeling much better.
Helen, I'm far from "wild" these days! Did have a nice evening though. First night out for ages. Did have pudding AND a couple of gin and tonics.
Hope your pain gets sorted soon and you start to feel better.
Hoping everyone else is coping and not feeling too bad.
Lots of love Sheila. Xx
Pleeeeease can I have the boys to clean my windows next. They are so dirty I soon won't be able to see out! I'd love someone to make me cakes to but trip to hospital last week showed I'd put on about 4lbs not good. I do feel righteous as I have just cleaned the fridge out now about to takle the parrot who has just thrown all her food over the floor. Hope everyone has a good weekend.xxx
