The 21st isn't very far away.. You will soon be on the mend.. It wasn't a hollow offer, I would be more than happy to take you to the hospital at any time.. Maybe in August you will be up to lunch? Life is a lottery, I went with what I thought was by best odds..( even though I'm crap at roulette!!! ) :DD.. I'll in box you my email xx

I next go on Mon 21st July then one more chemo after that then will be on Herceptin for 6-12 months? Then eventually recon to give me boobs again, even though I'm used to not having them now! Just very lumpy scars n tender still? Glad you well esp with no treatment! Does make ya wonder if we really need it! Thanks for offer. X

Re: Anyone from Hullbridge essex

How long will you need to go for? I'm really well.. As you know, I decided against chemo ( still not sure if it was the right decision) so, I haven't been through as much as you. I started back to work on Monday, on a phased plan.. So see how it goes.. If, I'm off and you every need a lift to the hospital, please let me know. I'd be more than pleased to take you. When you feel up to it, Ill treat you to lunch xx

Re: Anyone from Hullbridge essex

How funny, u could get a collection for different occasions!! They said I would be offered recon later?? Had 2nd chemo yesterday, bad headache from cap, better today but ache. My hair is coming out if I run my fingers through it, if I loss a lot more by next treatment will not do cap again as find it so horrible. Xx

Re: Anyone from Hullbridge essex

You sound really positive, which is the best way to be.. Whilst still having your hair and energy!!! Why did they not do your recon at the same time? Were you given I choice?? I've got used to having no nipple on my recon boob.. If, the op is going to hurt I might get a stick on :). I might even get a pair of those glittery tassel ones ;DD xx

Re: Anyone from Hullbridge essex

I'm so glad your first chemo went well.. And you haven't lot your hair.. How many doses will you need to have? I'm assuming your under Southend area? Do you have someone to take you to all your appointments?
Recon has gone really well thank you.. I'm back later today to have my tapes removed.. Take care dxx

Re: Anyone from Hullbridge essex

Hi, sorry, For the late reply.. How is the chemo going?? Hope you are feeling well.. . I had my mastectomy and reconstruction last September.. I decided against chemo, as I plumped for the Onoctype DX test, and it came back quite low. I've been on Letrozole since then.. I was in hospital 2 weeks ago to finish my reconstruction. Take care dxx
