Annie! so sorry for ringing you in morocco!! chemo brain set in and I completely forgot you had gone already! hope youve had a fantastic holiday and that you have some thermal knickers for this ridiculous cold weather....good news it was though eh?! seeing doc on fri for bloods etc,will let you know how it goes...talk soon...hugs...lozxxxx
Hi Tracey,sorry you have to be here with the rest of us! I live in south derbyshire so you really arent far away at all,there are a few of us that live not too far apart and we are planning to meet up soon,we were meant to be doing it a while back but we,ve all been too poorly and we are waiting for better weather if we ever get any! so you are welcome to join us when we do get together...take care...hugs...lozxxxx
hi i just notice this thread i live in mansfield so not far away from some of you would be great to meet people who are going through same
Lots of love Tracy xxxx
Hi Annie,hope you,ve had a fab time,not been on here myself as I am so rough at the moment,dont think doc should have let me have treatment last week as was full of cold then,he had a quick look at me and said I could go ahead with chemo but since then I have just got worse,really bad cold and so chesty,feel dreadful at the moment,got my scan in the morning so think I will go in to unit and see if doc will give me some antibiotics as this isnt going to go on its own,have big sore on my nose!look like rudolph!!feel like saying enough is enough I dont want any more chemo,selfish I suppose but so sick of feeling like this now,sorry for the downer,just pi**ed off!!! hope you are doing better than this!!! hugs...lozxxxx
I'm so bad at coming on here these days (trying to build my hours up at work!).
Good luck with your ultrasound - I'll be thinking of you & fingers crossed that you don't need Tax. I'm sure what ever Mrs Onc recommends is for a reason - I think I shocked her on Tuesday as I went armed with a load of questions!!
This time we're flying from Manchester as they're better flight times this time - makes you wonder how many times our paths have crossed in Duty Free in the past! :))
Hope everyone is ok?
Hi Annie,yes had 4th fec monday after hours in the poorly bay,thought I wasnt going to be having it as so poorly with cold and sore throat,anyway feel extra crap now as had treatment and got all this on top of it all! been awake since 3 this morning so feel a bit crazy at the moment,going to have a lie down now!! glad hubby at work,at least the house is quiet! yes we will meet up soon when all feeling better,having an ultrasound next thurs (26th) to see if "thing" is shrinking,lets hope so,dont want that docetaxil,( heard some stories and didnt like) anyway have a fab time in morroco! if you are going from east midlands aiport say hello to the girls in duty free,tell them you are a friend of mine and they will give you a drink at the tasting bar!! have fun and enjoy!! speak soon...love and hugs...lozxxxxx
Trish, hello & sorry you are here too. I've only just seen your post else I would have replied earlier.
Loz - you poor thing, I hope you feel better soon. I remember when I had a chest infection at Xmas, I went in and said I don't feel well enough today for chemo - they kept me in the sick bay most of the day, sending me for chest X-rays etc, threatened to keep me in but luckily sent me home with antibiotics!! Sorry that our favourite Onc has decided you are on 8 cycles - like you say it's a bit of a shock! I'm off to see her on Tuesday for my post rads check up - don't know what to expect to be honest. Have got a long list of questions to ask (had more time to think since I've not been having treatment!)
Amanda - how are you doing? I hope all is going well for you.
When you are all feeling up to it, we'll have to meet up - I'm off to Morocco next weekend.
Hi ladies,not been here for a whils as have been rubbish,saw doc friday and felt fine,woke up yesterday full of cold,now have sore throat and am supposed to be having 4th fec tomorrow,doubt I,ll be having it now,got to go in and they will decide if I,m having it or maybe I will need antibiotics (most likely)thought I was having 6 treatments but doc tells me its always been 8,news to me so bit pissed off tbh,hope you are all doing ok and have had a good weekend,musnt forget our meet up soon at the cherry tree!! as soon as the weather warms up we will get together,and any new ladies in the derbyshire area please get in touch,this site is great and it really helped me when I was diagnosed in january....hugs to all...lozxxxx

I sent you a message when you first posted on the thread. I’m just sending you a big hug and to say I’m so sorry to read you’re feeling shocking. I remember so well that horrible feeling, but we’re here for you to have a ‘moan’ ‘cos we understand! Try to think that it WILL pass and you‘ll feel better soon. Take one day at a time. It’s hard, but just think it’s zapping that BC! Hope you pick up a bit over the weekend.
PS Hope pic of my Fruit Bat dog makes you smile a bit!
Hi ladies,hope you,re doing better than me! I feel shocking this time,so much worse than before,couldnt get out of bed yesterday,the sickness and taste in my mouth is too much for me,my mouth is so sore,no energy and cant be bothered with it anymore,going to mums on tuesday,hope I feel better than this!! sorry to moan...just want to feel better :o( ....hugs...lozxxxx
Hi girls!! Annie,thanks thats very kind of you,I appreciate that,yes I was shocked at how much came out so quickly! and I had already cut to number 2,hubby has shaved my head this morning with the clippers without a guard on,didnt fancy the razor!! anyway its bald in patches and feels very strange!! will need to wear something in bed I think,my headis freezing now!might have a look at those buffs,not quite sure how you wear them??
Purple!! glad you,re doing ok,mine second one is the 5th so just before you,that is of course if my white cells have gone up,otherwise I wont be having it,I really hope they have,just need to keep the magic medicine to keep coming now I,ve started!,yes we will get that date sorted again now the snows gone!! looking forward to meeting you ladies...lots of love to both of you....lozxxxx

Bless you Loz - I'm afraid to say its about spot on time wise!! I started to drop just days before my second treatment too! My advice is to wear a hat in bed - I had it all over my pillows etc, not nice!
I've got a couple of headscarves if you want them? I've a blue denim one with beads (worn probably once) and a pale green one. Most of the time I wore buffs which are so comfy.
I hope Amanda is doing ok? I'm half way through rads now, first week was tough but much better now!
My hair is falling out today!! eeek! horrible feeling :o( tears galore..day 15 for me...lozxxxx

Hiya Ladies,well thats first one out the way and I must say that it was fine! just felt like I,d had big glass of wine while it was going in!..feel ok at the moment,expect those se,s will creep in later,been for a red wee! good job they warn you about that!,just going to chill and watch a film..got myself in such a state last night,now I,m so glad that I have today done with!...hugs to all you amazing ladies.....lozxxxx
Hi,yes I have bought some lollies and some small cartons of juice which I have frozen,heard about mouth ulcers with chemo so will try not to forget them!..yes we will sort meet up soon and look forward to that..take care...hugs,lozxxxx
I took ice cubes in to suck whilst having the chemo as it helps lessen the chance of mouth ulcers. I forgot to take in the one week and got ulcers that cycle so for me it definitely worked. Only issue is I am only now just starting to be able to have in any drinks as the thought of them took me right back to chemo.
Good luck with the chemo and I will keep a look out for any meetup dates
Oh that would be great if we were having chemo at the same time,you never know! just been to tescos to get my supplies in! am all prepared I think!.will be glad when the first one is over to be honest,getting a bit nervous now,looking forward to meeting you all too,all the best to you for treatment too,take care and keep warm!! hugs...lozxxx
Hey up loz yea I'm at the rdh 🙂 u never know we might end up havin chemo at the same time, but if not we will be on the same journey together 🙂 look forward to meetin u all very soon take care and good luck again for Monday will be thinking of you 🙂 xxxx
Morning,oh thats good then so you and me are starting the chemo journey at almost the same time,would be nice if we were there at the same time,not very likely though as you will probably start the week after me,I,m assuming you are going to the rdh but maybe you,re not!! anyway I agree that would be better for our get together when the weather picks up abit,was looking forward to today but think it would make more sense to wait,should start to change soon..we hope!good luck with your chemo nurse,hope she,s as lovely as mine (are we allowed to mention names on here?,I dont think we are)...love and hugs..lozxxxx
Glad it went well for u sweetie:-) I'm
Meeting my chemo nurse on Tuesday so I should know by tues when
My chemo starts 🙂
I agree loz let's meet up when the weather is better
Will be thinking of u on Monday darlin 🙂 xxxxxx
Hi ladies,been to meet chemo nurse today and she was lovely and made us laugh alot too!so my first time monday eeeek!! am all prepared though and want to get on with it now!...well I dont know what to say about tomorrow,snowing lots here now,maybe we should rearrange for when weathers bit better,what do you think ladies??..lozxx
What a b#gger!!
Let's see what it's like later, Loz has her first chemo on Monday, so it would have been nice to have met up before that!
Have got details of the Look Good, Feel Good courses in Derby for Loz & Amanda too - get tips on make up, scarves (I think) etc & get a goody bag. I'm on the March one. If we don't get to meet this week, will pm the number got you - have to book early as its popular!
Good evening u lovely ladies 🙂 afraid to say weather not lookin good 5-10cm comin tomoro night 😞 is it better to rearrange us ladies meeting up next week then the weather picks up again ?xxxx
Yes Annie! thats the best idea I think,going to get stocked up just in case,not sure if I,ll be up to trudging to the shop through the snow...hopefully the forecast is wrong! xx
Eeeeck!!! Better stock up the cupboards!! Not seen the forecasts to be honest - we'll play it by ear!
Hi Annie,weather forecast bad for friday so we had better see if we get another dumping of snow,back tomorrow for a chat with the chemo nurses and then hopefully monday will be 1st day,hope you having a good day..and hope to see you friday...hugs xxx
Bless you Loz! It'll be a relief to start and get in your routine!
I'm there on Monday for Rads practice too!
See you Friday
been for my pre chemo appointment today...just waiting for nurse to ring me with date to start,should be next monday hopefully..having fect all sounds very complicated to me,getting fidgety and just want to get on with it now...lozx
I've pm'd my address for you
Sounds good to me hunnie I'll have to meet u somewhere 🙂 xxxxx
Sorry it's taken me so long to sort this out, this week has been a week of appointments, here, there and everywhere!
How does Friday, 10th Feb - Cherry Tree Farm at 12.30pm sound? I'm really conscious that Loz and Amanada (Purple) are due to start chemo very soon and probably need the most support at the moment and some of you work during the day - so we will just have to have another meet up perhaps at tea time?
Anyone else in the Derby area is welcome to join us top - You'll recognise me either by wearing a hat or looking like a silver-back gorilla with very short hair!
Apologies if I've picked a date that you can't make but will happily work around you next time if you let me know!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend
