Thank you for the info on where to get a nighty CK, long as it doesn't sell doggy stuff I will hopefully get a couple lol.
Glad you had a good Birthday Rosie, cake is good!! Hope you get your date soon. Seems like we are always waiting for something at times.
Hope you had a great time yesterday Jen.
Good Luck to everyone having their Chemo, the wigs all sound lovely. Will be thinking of you all xx
Update on the nighty shopping that never was, my Gabbie (the Westie) is in the dog house as she refuses point blank to use her new bed, oh no she wants her old one like really?? She really is a little Diva *tut*
Have a good day everyone, and hugs to all xxx
Sorry to be elusive ladies - rest assured I am a frequent visitor to the forum but I don't always have anything to say (people who know me would say that is very unusual!).
Have had two weeks of waiting for action following my last oncology appointment. Finally got some progress at the end of last week - mainly because I chased - and am now scheduled to see a gynaecologist tomorrow afternoon to discuss surgery to remove my ovaries. Pushing to get it done sooner rather than later. Feels like the calm before the storm at the moment. I know the hormone therapy treatment and surgery will not be plain sailing, but the alternative is to risk the cancer coming back, so I just have to do everything I can to avoid that happening. We're all doing the same thing aren't we.
Anyway the last few days have been a glorious cancer-free zone, because Thursday was my 50th birthday. I have eaten a lot of cake! Had a lovely day out with a chum on Thursday, supper out Thursday evening, out for a curry Friday night, cinema yesterday and today, I have coffee and cake with a chum this morning, then another friend is treating me to afternoon tea at a very posh hotel. Wow, what a fab few days. Was starting to feel a bit sorry for myself - I live alone and have found cancer to be a very lonely journey at times. But the last few days have reminded me what wonderful friends I have.
Happy Sundays to all.
Daughter's birthday is tomorrow CK! Going out for lunch with with both daughter's, YD's boyfriend, ex-hus and my dad! Then we're going to my ex's local to hear a reggie band (not my dad I shouldn't think!) and ex-sis-in-law is joining us+ex's wife and daughter. An interesting day! xx
How are you Rosie? Thanks for your nice message on another thread xx
Ah my dogs would have been extremely happy!
Just a quick note to say hello and send a hug.
That's really funny Peanut! Glad your dog liked his pressies! xx
Hope everyone is good today. I went to buy some front opening nighty's ready for my operation, ended up with some Christmas presents, a Doggy Bed, some Christmas ornaments, a lovely winter bobble hat and a dog toy. Fabulous retail therapy but not what i went out for. Think I have lost the plot, but the dog was happy lol
Well that is what they are there for to help us get through the not so good days.
The wigs sound lovely, good idea about having the two as you say one on one in the wash.
As you say one day at a time
Also wanted to say hi and welcome.
The waiting is the worse part...you will feel so much better after the op.
There are various sections and threads on here that you may wish to join as you go through treatment. And there will be lots of support and advice on here from all the lovely ladies.
Sending a hug
I still now think did that really happen to me? Your surgeon is right one step at a time, small milestones are best.
We are all here for you and whenever you need the tough pants they will be winging their way to you
Thank you very much ladies, it has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, but like you CK I broke down and for first few days was a total wreck, but now I am almost in a state of denial, I know I have it, but feels like i dont if you know what i mean, strange but true lol.
I was picked up during a routine mammogram on the 24th July, I just thought I was lumpy and bumpy due to them losing their spring, plus the fact i was looking for a pea not a flipping broadbean when doing my checks lol
Treatment will depend on what they find in path lab after they have been removed, but definatly Radiation treatment, but he isnt wanting to look any further than that right at this moment until after the operation. He did say I would need hormons afterwards as it is hormon based. Appart from that I dont know anything else.
Thank you again I will be on here now regularly as you are all such a tremendious inspiration and all so very kind.
No sooner said than done your own special pair all nicely washed and pressed, with the extra big pockets so that we can all be in there to support you mate. You can do this xxxxx
Hello and welcome to the forum, not a place we would willingly be but you will get loads of help and support from the wonderful ladies on here as you go through your journey.
The waiting is the worst because you just want to get on with it but it will not be long until your op. I named mine Mr Blobby and just wanted him and his spots out of my body, it gave me the focus and was so happy after my op that he was no more.
Keep coming on here whenever you need and want to and there will always be someone here to help.
Well ladies you have been a inspiration to me reading all your posts, it has given me hope and picked me up when I have been down. I am still sat in the very early stages of just being diagnosed. Which was on the 29th Aug. I have plucked up the courage to ask what it is I have and it is Invasive Ductal Carsanoma (no idea if spelt right lol ) stage 2, with two of the little devils in sheep's clothing in there. I went for my pre opp assessment last Tuesday and all is ok for that, now just waiting for my operation, There is a delay due to "lack of theater staff" but have been told I am penciled in for the 10th October. Just waiting for it to be confirmed now. Seems to be a lot of waiting involved which I am finding the hardest thing ever, but looks like like I will finally be starting the journey i had never planed nor ever wished to to go on like everyone else here.
