Hey Bloss Chick!!

 

Fabulous to hear from you! I am not surpised that you are sore, feeling like you've been knocked down by a bus but it's onwards and upwards now with two new perky boobies 🙂

 

Slow and steady wins the race!!!

 

Super, soft hugs!!

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hi You AMAZING LOT. Your the ones that have got me through the last 3 months nitemare. You lot were the ones I spoke to. It was u lot helping me. Happyboobs 2 I take the follwing vitamin supplements with leterzole and altho only bin on it 4 months 8ve bin ok. I take a 3000mg oderless garlic supplement a calcuim and a ex strengh cod liver oil an seatone, sold by boots. it gets fab reviews from joint pain suffers sod all to do with cancer. I just buy it all. iam so unbelievably touched at you messages. I cant put into words. Nurse rachett turned up trumps by the end. ALTHOUGH on the sunday when theyd tried me on so many painkillers i was so high they could have saved emseleves the anasecthic an operated on me on tramadol!!!!! she did suggest i should EAT i thought p*iss off an leave me alone to die. Anyway she b4ings me a ready for this ........ a CRACKER. yep im nil by mouth since 6am sat. Its afternoon sunday im in so much pain i cant describe it. Ive got a mouth like a grannies gusset!!! sorry granny. and she brings me a dry jacobs cream cracker. Oh a a liquid energy drink now ffs surely someone could invent a energy drink that was room temp an tasted the nearest i can think of of drinking condensed milk through a straw. Anyway it set the cracker lovely in my mouth. Told em to take me off everything an i had paracetmol iv an ibrophen hows ur pain on a 1 -10 ? 20 sazs me an u lot are making it worse. Ive no drug tolorance anyway. But nurse rachett was there come in dpecially to see me when i ce back from theatre a second time muttering once wasnt enough then. I thought if shes got her crackees. Well im gonna hobble to bathroom to sit an have a wash. yep me gairs like a grannies an i couldnt give a f*ck. Then its off to hobble aroround the block or the closed doors. sorry for spelling mistakes think me brains still on the table. But your the lovely lot. YOU ALL OF YOU. Oh headlines on me paper a jab new of course to cure cancer!!!! Yeh righto. wheres me drain bags. LOVE TO YOU ALL AND THANK YOU

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hi Ali-B. MY friend suffered badly with mouth ulcers during her chemo and she was told that eat pineapple or drink pure pineapple juice. Apparently the enzymes in it work wonders for mouth sores. She swore by it and I be stocking up before my chemo starts. Helen xx

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

*Wry smile* at your friend who's clearly an expert in bc and knows the details of your dx, Botty, and then feels it's OK to give advice!  What I love about this forum is no-one competes over whose dx is worse than the next person's, no emotion is too much or too insignificant and we can all say exactly what we are thinking and feeling because we all know how it feels to hear 'you have cancer' and in helping each other we help ourselves.  The local group was a truly horrific experience and it stayed with me for several days.  I can laugh at the irony of it now - when I contacted them to say what had happened and suggest they might want to have a think about how they welcome newcomers in the future they replied with all sorts of excuses and lots of 'we're a lovely bunch, really, always helping each other out'.  Er, did you actually read my email??  No sign of 'lovely support' on the night I showed up to your publicly advertised meeting!  N'owt so queer as folk, as they say 😉

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Argh Tat. That would be my biggest nightmare. It takes so much to walk into those places in the first place. Somebody said to me last night I should try the local support group, mind you this is after he apologised for going about his wife's breast cancer the last time I saw him as he didn't know about me. I replied that had been my choice and it was fine. He then said don't worry you haven't got it as bad as my wife (is it a competition) and you've got to tell everyone just to be normal with you!!! I don't know when I've ever been so speechless. Of course I also got subjected to a complete run down of his wife's medical history 😠😤

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

That was awful for you!

One of the many interesting things I have found from everybody's posts is the similarity of our 'journeys',our emotions ,feelings.I was as big a wreck as anybody else on diagnosis.Couldnt eat,sleep and permanently in tears until the hospital appointment that explained what would happen next.I lost 7lbs in a week(have put it back on now though!)I slowly picked up although it never leaves you does it.

But now we are just waiting to hear from Blossom aren't we.

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

I'm sorry you had to do all that without online support, HBoobs, but glad you've found us now ;). I went to a local 'support group' last month and was completely blanked by two of the women wearing official t shirts in the entrance hall. Having walked past me to hug a woman who walked in behind me they then walked round and past me whilst not smiling or making eye contact! It was just awful and I stood there, smile fading, as embarrassment and mortification washed over me!!  I've had more support from a bunch of people I've never met than a local charitable organisation of real people! Got to laugh 😉 Xx

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hi,Thank you Tat,I feel I know a lot of you already.

It has been a year since my diagnosis,WLE,re-excision,chemo and radiotherapy and Letrozole.

I experienced so many of the emotions that many of you have and wish I could have had the support of you all in the early days but was not on-line then,however even now I get support reading everybody's posts.

i am struggling with the Letrozole but will carry on.I am ok for now and wish you all well.xx

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Glad you started this thread Ali as I was in hospital today and met a lovely lady who had a double-DIEP three weeks ago. She looked amazing and was so cheerful. In fact she was so well, despite being diabetic into the bargain, that I wanted to let Bloss know about it and hope she will do as well too so hope she reads this. She said that after only three weeks she was so pleased with the outcome. xxxx

Yes missing Bloss. I've only been on forum a short time as not long been diagnosed but she was so supportive & gave me a laugh when I twigged what the name was about.

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hey Bottyboo,

 

Re: ulcers, I use paracetamol for the discomfort and use listerine 'zero alcohol' at least 3-4 times a day to keep my mouth clean. Only brush my teeth very very gently so it takes twice as long!!

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hi Jan, you're very kind, but I think several months of feeling awful, losing your hair, nails, etc trumps rads 😉  Hope you're getting plenty of walks on the beach, bit bracing today with sideways snow here!

 

I love the Blossom Followers moniker!  Shows what a big impact she's had on the forum 🙂  I'm sure she'll have lots of stories to tell when she's out of the clink.  Can't wait!

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Hi blossom followers 😃
I keep checking to see if she is back.

Tat been following your progress through fab rads. Glad the new dressings helping. Don't you dare underestimate the rads unlike chemo they are relentless , much more wearing. I'm with Ali in Feb starters and at least we get a break between treatments.

Hope you're doing ok bloss , talk to us when you can.
Sending hugs

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Wish I could do more, but sending hugs to help get you through chemo, Ali. How many cycles do you have to have?  

 

21 of 33 rads done.  It's hard going (feel such a fraud saying that to someone having chemo!), but a new wonder dressing is helping a lot and given me hope I can get through to the end.  

 

Hope you're getting plenty of rest, Botty, and have someone looking after your every need 😉

 

Take care ladies xxx

Re: Blossom Hill HOW ARE YOU?????

Ali glad to hear you're OK apart from the mouth ulcers. Why do they always feel like they're massive yet when you look they're not as big as they feel? What is keeping them under control? Bonjela?
Just re read my post with its typo. Let us know soon it should have said oops
