Sharon, Sorry you are in the hospital. Hope they get you situated soon and out of there. I do enjoy not having to cook or do house hold chores while I'm there. I like my own bed though! Feel better soon! Hugs! FF
Hi Corey You have got a long way to travel. Hope your SEs aren't bad, you can take time to look after yourself and you have a community around to support you. xx
Hello Corey, glad to hear you have your first chemo under your belt. Sorry you had a bit of a meltdown and are suffering from a headache (hope that is better now!). The staff will be used to people coming in extra stressed, so I hope they looked after you. Sorry you have such a long journey both ways, and the roads aren't great, are they?
Please take care of yourself as much as possible. It is a stressful time. I hope you get few, mild or, preferably, no, side effects.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on.
bonariensis I didn't know you could get your scan results through the post. Not sure if I like that idea ok if good but if results bad I would want to see onc as soon as possible but at least you get a report to study it and ask questions.
Carolyn where are the hospital knickers from I can't imagine what they must look like. I always dress with clothes that do not have metal on not even bras. They let me go in without undressing and putting a gown on. I hate them you always feel your bum is on show for all to see. What does annoy me is waiting ages because you always get there early and then a patient gets wheeled in from A+E and they get seen first. I also look at the faces as I am leaving some they seem to look at you with pity one even said good luck made me wonder if they saw something bad.
Well I've got it all to go through on Thursday not as late as it usually is 6.10p.m normally get one for 8.pm or Sunday at a hospital a few miles away.
Good luck to julzd and anyone els having scan results.
Love and (((hugs))) xxx
Go for it properly .. run to the corner shop and get a bar of Cadburys .. rather than that pretend stuff !!!!
Note to self .... stop posting such rubbsh here as I notice some of the postings get 400 views !! and I must be labeled as some sort of idiot !!
Moijan, When I lay down to get my CT, I always think get up and run NOW! Run now you can run free and just say I quit I'm done! Then I say or you can be brave go thru with it and it will be what it will be! Maybe if you go through with it you will be stable and enjoy more life. So far I haven't run free!
Hello everyone, thank you for your good wishes.
Funny things scans, I lay in the mri scanner thinking, these pauses between being told to 'Breath in...blah blah' .....are very long today, whats happening? Have they just seen everything has GONE! Are they worried because they think theyve lost it?
then I thought 'oh no, theyve found the opposite, they are pondering how to tackle this!....'
Lastly.. the voice of reason said' they must be teaching, I heard lots of chatter in there last time they said...'breathe normally.'..
when I got out, I asked 'are you teaching today? And they said 'Yes, we were showing X how to...'
so that just goes to show how the thought demon can take over!
Boneariensis , getting scan results by post must be a bit scary? If you were worried who would you chat to?
on the other hand maybe you live a way from the hosp?
Good luck to you too jultz xx
Carolyn, I think chocolate is a good option( my bum and tum thrive/grow really well on it!) it has a lot of antioxidants and love hugs in it! Much love, hairless hattiexx
julzd, moijan Good luck with your scan results. These appointments are so scary. It can be hard to ask or say all the things you have been planning for weeks before hand. My last 2 results have come by post though, if they had been bad, I don't know what would have happened, I usually wait at least an hour having got there at the appointed time which doesn't help.
Carolyn, hold your head up high my fellow choco-ohlic, I too cannot go 1 day without a chocolate fix, even if it is just a chocolate biscuit some form of the yummy stuff has to pass these lips!.....by the way did you break last night?
Good luck to those having scans / results this week.
Hugs Janette xxxx
me too, am waiting for results of my mri on Wed. I'm right there along with you and Carolyn, I often feel like running away,( tho my onc is a lovely guy) maybe we should try a bar of chocolate? Carolyn?
We have had a new ceiling in our living room, the house is a tip. Redecorating today. Haven't done any of that for some time, the skirting boards have got further away and sitting on the floor isn't an option. Furniture should be back by the end of the week. Grandchildren and daughter came for tea. My latest bone scan showed stable which is good as my son-in-law (in the RAF) is going away for 6 months soon and I will hopefuly be able to help my daughter retain her sanity.
Hot, nasty humidity! It's been like this for about 3 weeks! You don't even want to go outside. I hate being inside. I would prefer to be out grilling, pina colada in hand, tiki torches lit, playing some games. Haven't had a dinner outside in weeks. Had a couple events we wanted to go too, but just to scorching. Oh well, maybe next year. Supposed to get storms today and be cooler this week.Hoping they are right!
