That poldark devil has history with me, I am sticking with Gary Barlow now much more reliable
Jill, I've been on fire since 1st one, I hope you calm down, feel like a fried chicken amd bloob is solid
Well done Jill - tick one off the list. I'm halfway through now - can't believe how quickly it's gone. I have a large area of redness but it's not painful so far. Sharon - have a lovely holiday. Happy weekend everyone xx
Hi everyone, hope all are ok. Well done Jill - I think you will feel better about going now you know what to expect. I went to see GP today and got some sleeping tablets as I can't cope any longer with lack of sleep. He did say hopefully as the Tamoxifen starts to leave my system things should improve and I should be able to sleep better. They haven't heard anything from hospital yet about which tablets I'm being switched to! I have to ring doctors when I get back from holiday to see what's happening! So tired tonight, went into work this morning then did a bit of shopping. I really need to pack but don't have the energy. Eldest son keeps hinting that he needs help packing which translates as will you pack for me. He is 20 and more than capable but you know what men are like! Going to try and get motivated in a minute. Have a lovely rad free weekend all xxx
15 down, 10 to go. Amberstone, they said that my rads are catching my lung but that it would recover each day as it is healthy cells. In the future though, there would be a possibility of it becoming more fibrous but that was possible and not probable.
So happy it is the weekend, boob is very sore inside and has now gone pink but in a big rectangle, I glanced over and saw on one of the screens today that actual area the radiation is covering, I wish they would be a bit more forthcoming with information, I thought it was just the boob they were zapping not the whole left side of my chest.
The getting changed bit is funny, on the first session, it was "get changed into a gown in this cubicle and we will call you in", from then on it was "come straight through and here's a blue bit of paper to cover up with". It does make it quicker though!
Enjoy the two days off, no lying millimetre perfect, holding your breath or saying "inf" and "sup" in your ear!
Hi Sharnie How you feeling today? I had my 3rd rads yesterday and when I got home Radiologist from Hospital rang 6.30pm (bloody tea went cold) told me not to come for treatment today as they have had a look at my "plan" and they feel it needs "tweeking" as it just catching my lung- OMG what does that mean =- have they damamged it- panic set in as it is my heart they keep saying they need to be careful of! but then he said nothing was wrong not to panic _ I had already done that!! Anyway they have to then send it upstairs to the "Gods" to be approved,so dont go til Monday. They are fitting the missing session in Bank Holiday Monday I dont mind we are doing nothing as it happens.
I am off out in short while to my Sons and we are taking grandson to the playcentre for couple of hours, have lunch and then hopefully he will have a sleep in pram on way home and I will get chance to catch up with my son - things gong on in his job - good though promotion to Manager but with Logans 2nd Birthday and everything going on all week, he has been off and I havent had chance to just talk to him.
I wll look for the Holland and Barratt Allergenics as I am using Sanex Zero body wash which is ok. I have bought some Aqueous Creme only £2.50 for large tub no point in asking for GP prescription. I am slapping that on morning and night but I hate the creamy/stickiness of it until it soaks in, cant get into bed until it has.
Please keep in touch on here as we all know you dont just recover overnight, although the men think we do! and forwarned is forearmed as they say. take care enjoy each day as best you can Maggie XX
Good luck tomorrow Jill! Just got back from friends birthday celebrations. Had a couple of glasses of bubbly so hope I can sleep tonight. Got work early tomorrow but only going in for half a day as have a doctors appointment in the afternoon. My daughter is staying on at sixth form to take a levels then she wants to go to uni. I think she will be able to - she's very determined and ambitious, don't know where she gets her brains from! So one less stress to worry about now. Going to bed now as I'm exhausted, goodnight all xx
Good luck for tomorrow Jill, what time are you going? Tip to help during rads is get some soft sports bras , couldn't wear anything else for weeks afterwards and only just back in my boned ones now Xx
Thanks Jill - my daughter is so worried about hers - I've tried reassuring her but she is convinced she hasn't done well. Fingers crossed all will be ok xx good luck everyone 😃
