Yes, it was a very good day. Thought it would be useful to post for others starting out that read the thread that there are good times during chemo ☺.
Pants about the hair, I found slow shedding started probably around same time but really picked up a week later. Xxxx
........ Hi back
Yes, they couldn't find a vein for a while but got there in the end!
I was just thinking the same thing on the sickness drugs front...... Hope you feel ok, I am starting to feel a bit rough so have taken the eve one and going to have a kip now....... kids home soon, volume control up!
Bit fed up that the next one is just before bank hols weekend ... we are booked in for common people!!
Mind you, I could always do it on a picnic rug I guess?!
Awww thanks all, what a fabulous support to log on and read xxx
Chemo all done and back home chilling out now...
Bex, lovely to put a face to a name..... we will probably see each other again I am sure.. I am going to ask for that time slot as it helps with school run etc.... Hope your x Ray went ok xxx
Much love to one and all
Take care xxx
Not posted for a while..... have enjoyed the whole feeling better thing, but now due in for round 2 FEC tomorrow am... goo luck to the other ladies that are on today and tomorrow..... think it was Becky, I may see you in the general... I am in chair 3!!
I have had some really rubbish feedback from the PET scan this week, outlining a possible spread of a tiny spot of B.C. in the liver...... absolutely beyond gutted.......
I have been told it has been caught so early that it is very highly likely to respond to the FECT, and if it doesn't then there are a lot of options to sort it out immediately after chemo........ really **bleep** news to try to digest, and a bit angry that they felt it needed sharing so early on in the chemo process...
Feeling very low about it, so any cyber hugs or support are very needed at the moment...
Oh yes, and still no wig option for this big head of mine, sniff and sob!!
Night night all xxx
Thats good Sarah. i am working from home and currently have the sun bearing down on me whilst i am using my laptop sat in the window chair.
We can do this.
The sun is shining, up showered and walked kids to school, woo hoo on the up. Highlight of the day a trip for picc line flush and dressing change 😅.
So sorry Helly and Zoe that you've had to postpone/withdraw from your Masters courses. Is there any way the credits you already have can be used for another qualification, for example a post graduate certificate?
I'm sorry to hear that you've had to cancel - as you say it is a pi$$er! It's good that you've made the decision though - Having a bit of control over something can help when we aren't able to control most of what's happening to us. I really hope you'll be able to book a holiday once your treatment is finished. Something good to look forward to during this rubbish time. xx
Oh Pants Helly,
Effing b45t4rd BC. It puts our lives on hold. We have to get through this with gritted teeth!! G@ddamit we will!!
Thanjs Diddy i will investigate app ☺.
Trivial in the scheme of things but finally cancelled holiday we had booked for August and feeling p! $$ed off. We had already made the decision that it was to tight a time frame just in case treatment was delayed for whatever reason (insurance didn't cover us as waiting for biopsy (4th!) at time of booking that no one thought a problem otherwise would have took a chance !)and were going to move the date which would have cost another £160. However, timeframes, insurance etc been too awkward and it was stressing me out so decided to cancel and look at later on.
Also sent my deferal of studies for MSc. had just started dissertation in feb, hey ho.
Thanks ladies I might try listening to some soothing music that helped a bit last time. Definitely feel worse this time though even minus the sickness x
Evening ladies, i had 2nd fec today and thanks to emend have no nausea or sickness but my head really hurts and the fuzziness is driving me mad. Feeling rather low at present can't seem to concentrate on anything, just about able to right this!! I'm so fidgety as I don't know what to do for the best
hope e everyone has had a reasonable bank holiday
Hi Zoe & Sunshine, sorry to hear that you're both not feeling great. My hair started coming out on day 16 after my first treatment of Taxatere. I decided to get it cropped to number 2 and I feel alot better about it now. I went to my local shopping centre today and I dont think that people were staring at me!
I have my second treatment on Thursday and I'm not looking forward to it at all - I felt rubbish for about 9 days after the first one. But after Thursday I'll be half way through so thats positive.
I really hope that you all feel better very soon and come to terms with the hair loss.
Lots of love xx
