Re: Chemo Buddies - starting 24th June 2016?

Hi Emma,

my daughter is a marathon runner, but pregnant and frustrated not yo run as much as she'd like!

Yes, I am able to carry on as normal - most days - just have tired periods at the mo. 

FEC #2 is on 15th Jly same as you 😬.

Those cramps were horrible - in both thighs and severe - would have been dangerous if driving. 

V mild symptoms except The Great Shedding has been happening these past 2 days - day 17 today! 

I'll  post in June and July groups. It was all overwhelming to begin with and taken a while to get used to who is who!

Hiya, glad you are doing OK, that's great news. I think my next one is the same day as you .... FrI 15th July. The only reason I was a few days earlier was so they could do the picc line that day. I'm ok physically but emotionally very up and down (never that 'up' to be honest at mo. I'm in both threads really but more so June.
Glad the cramps have sorted out now, not pleasant for you.
I do go for a walk every day. I'm a marathon runner so finding inactivity really gets me down but a walk is helping. Do you try to carry on as normal?xx

Hi Emma,

Im doing not so bad at all really, thank you for asking! 

Myvside effects have been mild and I'm doing ok. Everyone says I look well.

iI had wicked crippling though cramps yesterday - sudden and scary - so I phoned the hotline - they said it was a side effect of the jabs which finished last Saturday! 

So we are 1/2 way through our 1st dose - how have you been?

aAre you in the June or July threads?

Thank you.
Yes I popped into the July group and it was nice to be at the beginning. With being the 24th I didn't think I was close enough, though!

Thank you Lizzy!
I didn't think anyone had replied ...
I am in the June monthly group, but I'm struggling to keep up with who's who and their stories. 🤓
Thank you for the info here...

You may not have many if any start exactly the same day you will be better off either to join the June thread or I noticed there is now a July 16 thread appeared! I commenced chemo on March 27th 14 and joined the April 14 thread as most of the March ladies were on their second cycle. Whichever thread you choose you have come to the right place for daily support from others that know what it is like! Good luck.

Hi - I know it's nice to be in a group where people have gone slightly before, but I wondered about people starting the same DAY?
