Good morning Ladies,
Helen , how are you ? I have my Hattie Jacques' matron uniform pressed and ready to go for a visit. Please tell your onc if he doesn't sort it out I will give him an ice cold bed bath !
I will check on you later.
Funnyface, I didn't know you are getting married, when is the big day??? How exciting for you!! : - )
Trick a, welcome to the forum, sorry you have had to join us though, as Helen has said unfortunately there is no cure for secondaries but there is a whole lot of treatment out there and it can be managed for many years, sorry you are having to wait for answers......Unfortunately this is something we secondary ladies have to put up with ie waiting for scans, results and appts. Hope you get some answers soon and they get you on a treatment plan.
Hugs to all Janette xxxx
Hello lovely ladies can i hang out with you on the bone mets threads
I have stage 3 HER2 pos bc and i have had a lumpectomy and full node clearance removing 18 positive nodes. Been told i need a further op to achieve a clear margin. Clear bone scan
Today however was told CT scan not clear and secondaries and got to wait for bc consultant to have a multi disciplinary meeting Monday to discuss me. So they left me not knowing where the spread is which is a terrble place to be.
I just want to know whether they can treat it or control it
Looking for friendship on here from others going through the same
Helen ...Gosh I wish they would get your pain sorted!!!I don't know how you are able to handle it.
Kate....sorry to hear about your MIL....it's nit ea s letting go!
Belinda...I've .been really busy at work and with some family things. First fitting for my dress and her gown this Sunday. I'm ok but not my best. Neulasta took its toll on me this time. Very SOB on it, fluid retention, and bone pain, and sore throat. I wanted to throw in the towel!
Trying to pull myself together! Funnyface
Morning all, lovely day here in Manchester the sun is shining, hope you all waking up to the same,
Kaye, good luck with your results today will be thinking of you, so sorry to hear about your mother - in- law I did the same a few years ago and it's a horrible thing to have to go through 😞
Hugs to all Janette xxxx
Kaye I hope those scan results have good news stamped all over them for you. It does sound like things have been a bit tough for you lately and it can't have been easy sitting with m.i.l. with all that on your mind as well.
I am so sorry to hear the news about your Mum.I have not had Cape myself but I know alot of women who have and hopefully they'll be along soon. It is an easier chemo in terms of SE's than many of the others, the main one's are sore feet/hands but you can use creams to help with this. It can be very successful for good periods of time, we have had women on it for years at a time.. In addition to being less harsh than some it is also easier to deal with because it's oral so less invasive. I hope when you are able to tell your mum more about it she will rethink.
Hi Sainie, really sorry to read your post about your mum, I can't give you any advice as I know nothing about it but i'm one of the ladies on here will be able to give you some, take care
Hugs Janette xxxx
Good afternoon Everyone,
Helen , I am so sorry you are in such pain. Please take care.
Bev , so sorry about the holiday , but I am sure as soon as this grotty time is over you will be off somewhere nice.
Hope everyone is okay, good luck with results and please look after yourselves.
PS After the big rant last week , I have slowly turned back into my normal self xxx Thanks everyone
Helen, can' t believe that you are still suffering, hope they can sort out that pain soon for you.
Bev, so sorry you have had to cancel your holiday that's such a shame, stay strong there's always later on in the year when you are feeling stronger.
Chocolates, how you doing? When are you having your tests??
Hi to all you other lovely ladies
Hugs Janette xxxx
Helen, Hang in there chickie! I hope they get your pain under control and get to the root of it!! Don't let them wave off your symptoms. Push for answers! Funnyface
Bev, I'm sorry the SE from rads are still playing havoc and have messed up your vacation. I hope you feel better soon. Glad the vinorelbine is going smoothly. Wishing you the best! Funnyface
Lovely to hear from you Bev, I am so sorry you are still feeling so poorly and that you will miss your holiday. Hopefully you will soon be feeling a little better which will enable you to arrange something else to look forward to. Look after yourself you lovely lady, we are all thinking of you and everybody else dealing with this awful disease. Jackie xx
I also have a portacath, which has been problem free for the almost two years it has been in. Doesn't show even when wearing V or scoop necked tops. I also had it inserted while awake and chatting to the surgeon!
Good morning ladies..i know most of you check this thred and so am asking if anyone can offer ny advice.
Does anyone have a 'line' in for chemo rather than having canula's every time. My veins are rubbish and now on 3rd chemo regime. As thise on erubilin will know it means 2 blood tests and two chemos in 2 weks and i am finding this very stressfull. On my 2nd chemo i asked my onc about a line and he advised against it because of infection. My chemo nurses are recommending that i should now have a line and have got to discuss with my onc next week. just wondered if a 'line' affects you having scans (any metal etc??) and whether scan dyes etc can be administered through them. The nurses did say i would have to go to hospital every week for it to be checked and i wondered how i would go on if we ever got to go on holiday. Also i have pulmonay embolisms sowondered if that would have any effect on the decision. Many thanks for any help you can give.x
