Well done judi, you are 1 in front of me. I can feel a slight warmth tonight, plenty of e45 and only using simple soap. I see the onc on Monday, for update and thereafter every monday during treatment. How are you feeling. Hope all good lol xxxxxxx
Hi Ladies up and about this bright morning 3 down 12 to go no probs so far keep putting the cream on going out for lunch before i get zapped make a day of it i have to get transport next week it has been nice so far as my hubby has been off work so no hanging around but hey its not forever Love to all of you Love Judi xxxxx
Hi girls, hope everyone ok. First rad today and all ok. Can't believe that there is no noise or flashing lights. Love the way it moves around, really sussing us out. Have all my appointments for the afternoons which is great as I finish work at 1.30. Love to all xxxxxxx
Hi Ladies back home sooner than expected so that was a bonus in and out in a jiffy one down 14 to go onwards and upwards Love Judi xxxxx
All ready to go to Hull and i got a call to say 2 machines had broken down so there will be some delays do i want to postpone till tomorrow noooo i dont im all stressed now, i feel worse than when i had chemo how daft is that better pack some sandwiches love to you all Judi xxxx
Sorry you have to go back but at least you know you will then be ready to start rads. The transport facility is great and even better to take the stress away from hubby. Wishing lots of love xxxxxxx
So pleased for you. That will take some of the stress away. There are some fantastic people around aren't there. Happy easter lol xxxxxxx
Good idea kitt,
I've just phoned and been told my treatment itself starts weds 29th. That actually fits in quite well with getting back from 'running' the London marathon and having a day to rest before the radio roundabout starts.
Happy to now know the actual start date... and I'll officially be in April showers 🙂
I got my planning letter today. Appointment is not till Monday 20th April.
I wonder if they misread that I requested to not start till the 20th as to not even have the planning till then.
Looks like I'll be a Maybe baby.
Hi ladies, hope everyone is doing ok. I still keep getting shooting pains in my boob and made worse today because I did some vigorous cleaning. Any Body else similar. Somebody mentioned they still couldn't hoover? Or excuse for the oh to do. Must be honest though, haven't been doing my exercices as not sure how long we should go on for. Appreciate tips. Be good to compare our rads. Also, I wasn't told to start using e45 before treatment, will it help? Thanks my special friends lol xxxxx
I have also posted on the March thread, but as my rads start tomorrow at Mount Vernon, so most of my treatment is in April, thought I would join you here too.
Bought simple soap yesterday and have been using E45 for the last couple of weeks.
Like you Nenya, this is the treatment that is causing me most concern (did not have chemo) and have seriously considered refusing rads, but as I had 1 positive lymph node am going ahead.
Was diagnosed October 2013, so has been a long 18 months to get to this stage, as I was taking letrozole to shrink the tumour, which it did, so was able to have a lumpectomy.
Am hoping to work through rads, as I like to keep everything as normal as possible, but Nenya, as you say we just do not know how this treatment will affect us - lets see! time will tell.....
Best wishes to all

Ooh, lots of familiar names on here, hello lovely ladies 🙂
I'm also on the March thread but my treatment isn't due to end until 17th April (have done 12 out of 25 so far) so I hope you won't mind if I nip in here occasionally too to see how you are all getting on. I wish you all well and look forward to hearing how you are all doing.
Hi ladies, just had my planning, posted update on Marching together thread, and start 8th April, so good idea Sunflower. Been taking anastrozole now for just over 2 weeks and will be taking for probably over the 5 years as it seems they have now found it to be more beneficial. Well, we can only be guided. Hope you are all doing ok, love hearing from all. Have a great weekend. Lol xxxxxxx
I've requested to not start till 20th April but haven't had anything back yet. Hoping to get something this week as its been over a week since seeing the onc.
Best wishes to everyone starting in April (and those finishing soon 🙂 )
Hi Sunflower i start my radiotherapy on April 7th for 15 sessions went a couple of weeks ago to be tattoed!!!and came away armed with a massive tub of aqueous cream have you had chemotherapy? i have been on this forum since Nov when i was diagnosed only through a routine mammogram surgery in December (lumpectomy) thankfully no spread to lymph nodes and clear margins but had to have chemo because i am Her2 pos so am currently having Herceptin for a year as well Love Judi
