I dont know what it was, most strange. Only thing I can think of was dentist but never happened before. Mind a lot of things are happening that I have never experienced before
Hot ginger, lemon and maybe some Manuka honey and whisky later - yuuuuuuuuum.
Got to go out and do a bit of work for an hour and then back in and to bed I think.
Annie - what a Christmas present! At least hopefully the onc will be in a good mood!!
I have had problems with the T of the wound opening up and was on anti-biotics for a while. That seems to have sorted itself out with the inidine although being checked weekly. The side of the breast looks red but the surgeon saw it on Friday and says that he just thinks it is bruising coming out.
The good news is that my temperature is back to normal this morning so hopefully they will be able to proceed with my portocath and chemo. Will get the breast checked at the hospital though and might ask for some antibiotics in case.
I dont think that I have ever felt so cold. Husband came up to fnd me in bed, wearing dressing gown with hood up, duvet and fleece throw over me shaking like a leaf.
Does your temp go down on its own or do you have to take the antibiotics?
Sorry to hear about your implant - sounds awful - good luck today.
Sorry to hear this Maggie. I dont know anything to help other than what you have already done.
ie. called the emergency number.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Hope your ok.
Hope the cold cap is working for you and that your not suffering too many nasty side effects.
I decided to stay off work the whole time. I usuall commute on rush hour trains.
I am a very emotional sort of person and just burst into tears ever so often. I couldnt handle the physical aspect of getting into work nor the hassle of work itself.
I am seeing oncologict Fri 2pm.
I am planning to write down my list of questions.
Other than what drugs / how are they given / what intervals and side effects/ plus cold cap or not
What else in your opinion, do I need to ask ?
I thought I would ask you as your a month or two ahead of me me.
Really appreciate any comments you may have.
Thank You and good luck.
Thank you for the valuable information and thanks for sharing.
It really does help.
Still waiting on HER2 result. Not sure why its taken so long.
Wishing you all the best.
Keep in touch.
Hi. Thank you for replying.
I was just reading the December thread.
It helps somewhat. Then leads to more questions.
Like everyone on here am very emotional.
It is good to hear how everyone is doing.
Thank you to everyone who posts here.
I have picked up lots of info, perhaps a little early, but I am one of those people that need to know well in advance.
Not sure about the meds, how they will be given to me, do I have any choices. Just more questions.
I received my appointment date today.
Its for Friday 12th - 2pm. First appointment with an Oncologist.
So will know more then.
How is your treatment going ?
Thanks for your help.
All the best.
Hi Elaine.Thank you for taking time to reply.
Its a lot to take in and to understand some of the terminology used.
I havent yer received all of my results.Still waiting on the HER2.
Not sure why the delay. My biopsy was done 20.10.2014.
My surgery was 12.11.2014.
I have just today received my oncologist appt date. Its 12.12.2014. Next Friday.2pm.
So my treatment was surgery then looking like chemo, more surgery, radio, hormone treatment herceptin and tamoxifen.... as I said, havent got all results in yet.
I cant face work so havent been in at all since I had my biopsy.
It took a couple of weeks to heal and by then I had been diagnosed. I have been so emotional and no way could I have worked. I am going out to the park, bit of shopping here and there, trying to eat really healthily, and doing lots of exercise. I couldnt do this at work.
I agree it is very supportive to hear what we are all going through.
This is a great forum and I am learning bit by bit from the women that have already been through all this.
I am not sure why the CT scan but hope all goes well. My next appt is 12th so will catch up after that if not befor.
You take care.
I had a wire guided local excision and SNB 12/11/2014.
My tumour was 1.2cm.grade 2. Ductal invasive.
All went ok apart from me being allergic to the blue dye. Came out in wheals blue/green. also red rash in places.eyes looked like i had blue eye shadow applied. Arms and legs had swelled a little.
Recovered from all that. Wounds healing ok.Feeling fine.
Got my result 12 days later.Last Friday.
Tumour was slightly bigger 1.6cm.
Was shocked to find it had spread. They found a dot less than 2mm in one of my nodes.
So now I am waiting for appointment to see the Oncologist as chemo recommended.
My appointment to see consultant again has come through for end of March.
So I had a biopsy initially (20.10.2014 ) then surgery.
To be followed by chemo, then more surgery ( axilla clearance ) then radiotherapy.
Obviously no one wants to go through any of this.
I was initially told I wouldnt be having any chemo,
So now have to get my head round that.
Just wanted to say Thanks for the support so far to all on this site.
Is there anyone else that was allergic to the blue dye ?
With regards to chemo are there any choices about the type/ combination of meds?
How is it administered ?
I should really wait to see what my treatment is but no idea how long it will be before I see oncologist.
It shouldn't be too long as I haven't had too long to wait so far for any of my appointments.
Its still a wait and I am scared. I was scared of the operation before as up untl now had been ok health wise.
Its just the waiting and not knowing keeping me awake. I cry myself to sleep most nights.
