Think we need to bolster up Tat4Tit. so I'm asking you Running Free to give out that other Vic of Dib incident/scene you said you created - now.
Think Tit4 and others NEED your humourous imput.
Lotsa Delly love to everyone
Well, apart from this minor glitch, all else went well & the appointments sec & I had a good laugh about it!
Sorry to hear your news, all the very best for your treatment & wishing you many more years.
we all have times when we really cannot feel upbeat
Im sorry you've had this news but hang on in there, you know how quickly things can swing in a more positive direction
I inadvertently recreated another V of D scene a few years back but I'll tell you it when you are ready for a laugh
Oh Ann, now if I'd been that old bloke I would've turned up at the gynaecology dept just for the laughs! Doesn't inspire much confidence, though, does it?
I remember that scene well, Runningfree 😉 Can't beat a bit of the Vicar of Dibley for a giggle.
I've just been dx with secondaries in my liver and soon to start weekly taxol, indefinitely (if it works) for my sarcoma. Not just a t!t that's tat. Now a liver too! Will keep trying to find the funny, but having a weekend off trying to be upbeat xx
I am so jealous of Tat4tit's call sign
Im thinking of getting one as reconstruction looking unlikely
Yep Runningfree - got you on the V of D episode !! Yahoo.Wish they'd bring 'em back, no doubt they will.
Ann-m - As long as you don't receive an apptmnt for a labotomy !! Ooo-er, doesn't give much confidence in your hospital, does it.
Good thread Tat - well done gal. Still giggle at your NAME!!
Hope you're all well luvvies
just got back from a walking holiday in the Lakes with my husband and kids
I'm a keen runner but chemo seems to have made my feet a big delicate in walking boots
My husband bought me a pair of lovely soft leather walking boots with gortex lining as my old ones were split and letting water in
we had just climbed a mountain and I was feeling euphoric on the way down, my feet felt fantastic!
I started showing off to my boys how waterproof my boots were, jumping with both feet into puddles
next thing I went in up to my waist! anyone ever seen the vicar of dibley!?
Some recent cheesy jokes that made me chuckle
What do you say to a bear to get it to move - Cam en bert!!
What does the cheese say to itself in front of a mirror - Hallou me!!
Love and hugs
Remembered another laugh from my last oncology appointment....
Nurse takes me to be weighed. Says 'You don't look your age'. Not surprisingly, I feel instant love for her. She then ruins it by saying 'I can't believe you're 64'. I point out that's because I'm not. I was born in '64
It's not poor taste at all, because you made the joke ....if someone else had made it first about you without you finding it funny then that would have been very poor taste. I think it's great your family can find humour through this whole BC thing, it's the best way to be !
Oh ladies, after starting this thread and feeling the deafening silence of absolutely no replies I haven't checked it in months. Your funny stories have made me laugh out loud!
Last Christmas we had the traditional and rowdy game of gin rummy at my parents' house. I wasn't winning and I was a bit miffed, so I mentioned that any normal family would let the lady with cancer win. My son immediately said he should win because his mum has cancer. My mother..... you get the idea! It was in extremely poor taste, but we laughed like drains and there wasn't even any alcohol involved 😉
Thank you for sharing and keep laughing girls 😉
These are great, keep them coming 😊😊😊😊
this is isn't hilariously funny, but made me smile.
I've had to have my booster rads template marked up twice, as the oncologist wasn't happy with the first one. Those of you will know that you get drawn on, around a plastic template. My tumour removal was at the top of my boob. When I went back the second time I questioned the oncologist as to why she using a plastic CIRCLE to draw around, as last time she had used a long oval. She stated that they only had circles, and it was definitely a circle she used the previous time. I didn't argue but I was a bit dismissive of her as I knew what I had seen. After she had left I said to the radiographer that I was SURE it was along oval, as it had taken me two days to wash it off and I saw it enough. The radiographer said it had definitely been a circle, and maybe it just looked like an oval when I looked down at it. Still unconvinced by this explanation I stood up without my bra on of course (being 47 years old, and having lost a few stone over the last few years and being larger busted) there it was again the long oval! Yep, being a bit droopy turns a circle into an oval. I was a tad embarrassed at my being convinced they were wrong!
I love a laugh and am known at work for my upbeat stance on life. Luckily I am still managing 'most of the time' to maintain a sense of humour (sometimes close to the bone to some😜) I have recently picked up my short platinum wig with a asymmetrical longish fringe ready for the inevitable (wig people advised it suited me 👀) my son who I've always brought up to be open and honest and who is also fully aware of my usual humour came home for the weekend. I could tell seeing me try the wig on really disturbed him and he told me later it was because I look so different from His mum. But his initial response was to say he wasn't sure if he liked it as it made me look like !!!!!!! Wait for it !!! A funky young chick like Rhiana or even PInk ?? no BORIS flaming Johnson. I have to admit, it does.
This image does make me giggle but what do I do now ladies ? Im sure on one of my braver days I will venture out in it and even try to gain a few votes maybe. But on my more sensitive days I might be found hiding with a hat on. Lots of love to you all. Got to try to find a smile everyday, even during the hardest darkest days. We are still here and we are Warriors 🛡Xxx
Hi,When my surgeon came to see me before my surgery he sat across from me on my bed and said really seriously can you tell me what you are having done today to which i replied yes liposuction and a tummy tuck equally as seriously lol .....luckily he is a friendly chap who laughed along with me even though he must have thought i was an arse x
When I was first diagnosed with BC & all the multiple appointments that came with it, my husband came with me & was brilliant with asking pertinent questions & clarifying issues.
Then came the appointment with the surgeon & BCN about my surgery (WLE & SNB).
When asked if we had any more questions, my husband, took a breath & I thought great, he's going to ask something I haven't thought of.
He then said, "well, when will Ann be able to mow the lawn?, she has her own lawnmower..."
The surgeon then replied with a perfectly straight face "oh, not for at least another year...!"
It's been a running joke ever since.
When I get really fed up I play 2 games...
1. If I knew how much my treatment was costing, what would I choose to have, could I have, say, instead of a MX and DIEP, have me neck lifted and a lobotomy? No? Ok... game 2
2. Plan what I would write on my soon to be gone bosom for the surgeons... Dear green gowned people, please treat this tit with respect, it fed my 2 boys for a total of 3 1/2 years and has given me, a significant number of chaps and a couple of women a good deal of pleasure over the last 45 years since I was 17.
...I do have largish breasts so if I sharpen my best red lip liner and write very small maybe I can get all the words on?
Oh well, maybe not. Rock on girls
i can equate to the emotionally incontinent and fear stuff more often at the moment. I hope I become more amused as time goes on, as that used to be my positive approach to life....which has left me at the moment.
However, what struck me as amusing the other day was similar to you,,,,,that I too was becoming quite used to not caring who saw that ...err...shall we call it rather aged chest that I was embarrassed of anyone seeing two weeks ago. The woman in M and S doing bra fitting was concerned about my 'dignity' whilst doing a fitting and I told her it didn't matter I had no concerns after everyone poking and looking.
Does anyone else find themselves, as the start of diagnosis and treatment, looking round the public and wondering who else is suffering with a diagnosis?
Seems I'm the only one with a warped sense of humour! *backs quietly out of the room* 😉
I hate having cancer and everything that goes with it. I am scared most of the time and frequently angry and emotionally incontinent. But, I have also had some moments where I've had to smile at the situation I've (reluctantly) found myself in. I don't want to offend anyone by being flippant about what is a horrible disease, but I need to try to balance all the cr*p with a few laughs, so I have been wondering if there's anyone else out there who would care to share things that have made them smirk, giggle or laugh out loud?
I have a rare cancer (primary angiosarcoma in the breast) and had weeks of tests and examinations with both breast specialists and sarcoma specialists in a total of 5 different hospitals! It occurred to me one day whilst being examined that I had learned a new skill.....I can have a sensible, even serious, conversation with complete strangers whilst naked from the waist up! Not sure if that's a transferrable skill at my age....
