Morning ladies, feeling so sad today, just been reading about Rebecca Ferdinand, just want to scream and cry!!! 😞
Hate this horrible, nasty, ugly disease, that poor woman leaves behind a husband and young family it's so unfair.....RIP Rebecca.
Sorry for the rant ladies it's just at times like this it brings reality home and scares the **bleep** out of me!!!

Hello Siani, we were both diagnosed at the same time for bc and sbc I've had different treatment to you , but that's the nature of this ****** illness.
I've voted for the sbc ribbon , fingers crossed for a successful campaign. Thank you to all who have worked for this.
End of Poldark era
After receiving a letter from the BBC . I carefully tissued wrapped Ross and sent him back to costume drama land. On the understanding he will be returned to me next year. I have put my corsets and riding boots in the loft and am fully back to 2015 .
I was hoping to keep the quads, but due to Chocolates 'moonshine ' incident with them and the Panaroma programme on ' Drink problems in early years '(they did look cute though!). my lovely quads are now in a reform nursery.
It has been quite a busy couple of months. Thank goodness the OH has no idea what has been going on.
Wishing you all a good , restful bank holiday,
Hugs Marie xxx
Hello and welcome Siani, as Helen (2catlady) said we are a friendly bunch so please join in when you are ready.
Can I just remind everyone to vote for the Secondary/Mets pin. It's important we have our say and get the pin most of us want. Yo'll find it on the thread Yourthoughts please. I think this is the link https://forum.breastcancercare.org.uk/t5/Living-with-secondary-breast/Your-thoughts-please-Ideas-for...
Latest news on our Chris (Steris) is that she is still being taken care of at home. Her Grandaughter was born about a week ago but it was by c-section so Chris hasn't seen baby Darcy Willow yet. Despite being very tired a lot of the time Chris is still having special times with her lovely family and keeping smiling.
Bev, hope the fatigue is lessening. Sheila, hope you are getting back on the right road and are more comfortable.
Hope everyone is having as good a day as possible, love to you all xx
Hello lovely ladies...hope you are all feeling ok and coping with SE's etc. I wonder if i can 'pick your brains' as i have done with ladies on skin mets thread. I know many of you haev been on cpe indefinitely and i have mentioned that my onc is absolutely against this and doesnt seem to beeve me when i say i have seen people write it on this forum If you are one of these ladies (sorry cant remember who you are) would you please let me know...how long and what for....think you can PM me (not sure how it works) if you are prepared to say which hospital. Likewise, i have read several post about imiquimod cream for skin mets...if anyone has actually ben prescribed it can you let me know. My onc has never heard of it, cant prescribe it as its not on the list and says its 'probably american'. I was told i was NAD 4 weeks ago but skin mets ahve returned with a vengance (apparently they are not picked up by scans?!) so am now about to start erubilin. cant say i'm looking forward to it as its tough on bloods and hair but at least its another chance isnt it. Cyber hugs to all and many thanks for your help. x
Hi Natalie I have my inj in my arm. My regular nurse injects it very slowly and have hardly any pain at all but at christmas a different nurse jabbed in the needle and pushed thd plunger really fast and it really hurt. I suppose its down to how you do it x
My oncology nurse also said it hurt less having the denosumab injection into your tummy. But I only have about 10 seconds of pain when it is actually injected and nothing further, so I still have the injection in my arm.
Thanks Nicky and Marie, I am convinced it's due to the denosumab injection, I have noticed each month I have it its getting more painful, might see about swapping places and having it in my stomach instead?? Have always avoided having it there as I have my zoladex injection there on the same day that is like a flipping javelin 🙂

Hi Janette, I too suffer from pains in my shoilder and shoulder blade. When I told my onc she said it was the nature of the illness and to take pain killers. However as previously mentioned I have started physio. My physio said that my good posture was helping my back during the day , but by the evening the strain on my shoulders were making it ache. I now have a 'pulley' that fits over the door to stretch my shoulder muscles. It really has helped. Also I am not 'new age' but I have started wearing a haematite bangle. They are not expensive. Apparently they help with circulation. I am not normally a believer in these sorts of things, but I think this has helped.
Hope you are feeling better today.
Bev - so good to hear from you! Glad you are feeling a little better with the steroids - keep up the good work, and hope you are back to "normal" soon.
Helen - hope you have managed to get control of your pain - glad (???) you were able to have your chemo as planned - hope the se's behave themselves this time.
Everyone else - good luck with results, treatments, etc.
PS Marie - it's time you took some responsibility for the behaviour of the quads! No wonder they are naughty, after hearing what you and Ross got up to at the weekend in the hotel!!! Stop handing them off to other people - you and Ross need to look after your own children!
Bev lovely to hear from you, sorry you have felt so rotten with SE's let's hope you're on the home straight now.
Well yesterday I was in sandals and tee shirt today it's back to my winter coat!!!! It has rained/snowed here this morning....aah the great British weather.
Hope everyone is doing okay
Hugs Janette xxxxxxx
Afternoon ladies, hope you are keeping well, it's been a nice day here in Manchester.
Helen I hope you managed to get your chemo and didn't have any probs.
Bev, Faraway, Sheila thinking of you and hoping you are okay.

Just opened the Sunday paper , 'Quads quized about cream cake fight.' It sounds deadful , in that lovely hotel where you go for cream teas. So sorry that you and your hisband have now been banned. They can be naughty , the little darlings. Send them back to Chocolates when you are ready.
Belinda I think I looked quite hot in the hot pants, but I agree the boob tube may have been a mistake !
Dear everyone, wishing you all a good week , take care Marie xxxx
