Daisy sue I've just ordered lol rolls and gong to get the rest tomorrow. I've managed to eat half a pizza and banana so let's see how long it'll last with me 😓
Hi Rosie, I can't say that them pills helped much but they did ease it off a bit. The doc also gave me some pain killers that where surpose to stop it but I never took them. I still get the diorea now and I have finished chemo. But I can't eat much so not got a lot to poop out lol lol. Do you live in Cyprus or are you on holiday? You lucky girl lol X X X
Warcol get some dyrolytes in there a drink to put the salts back in your body. They taste **bleep** but they help you feel a bit better . How's you doing for loo rolls lol lol lol X X X
I am now nearly 4 weeks on since my last chemo. I have lost most of my eyelashes and eyebrows but they will grow back. I cold capped but still lost 60% of my hair, it is coming back very slowly. I have made sure I am walking every day and don't seem to need a sleep during the day which is good. I am having an operation on Wednesday ....wide local excision. Just seem to be wading through appointments but enjoy crossing them off !!!!!! I hope you all recover from the side effects quickly.....it really is the greatest feeling when chemo comes to an end. I'm sending you all lots of love and hugs. Xxx
On Wednesday I have my last chemo. This will be the end of the chemo journey but the next will be the journey after BC. I am OK but have my moments especially when I look in the mirror and play 'spot the eyelash'. Hair is growing back but not fast enough. Exercise has well and truly kicked off with alternating days of a 4km brisk walk and a 2km jog, not too far or fast, just getting those muscles working. I can't face the gym yet with not much hair etc and there is no way I am going to the gym with a wig!!
I won't be having rads due to no lymph node involvement nor vascular invasion, it was very localised, I was lucky considering it was a grade 3 IDC. Will be on tax of course!
Good Luck to you girls who are still in the middle of it all it sucks donkey balls but with every day you get closer to the finish line.
See you on the 'other side'!
Afternoon ladies as you can see I have got white wispy hair lol lol in the sun it shines. Still getting bad SE even though I got another reduction in my T. I feel like I have just spent the last 5 months on the loo. No mater what they give me straight through like the euro tunnel. Still can't eat no taste so I don't want food. I have had some numbing in my hand and legs what's that all about.
20th June of for CT scan as par for the course. Then doc to discuss my operation.
I so want to feel normal again girls I am to old for all this crap.
hope your all ok.

Here's hoping you don't need to stay in hospital! In a 'Columbo' stylee, 'just one more set of side effects' and that'll be it!!
Speedy Recovery to you Emma and all!
I am due my last T this coming Wednesday - can't wait. No rads for me just tamoxifen but looking forward to new boob. Currently have an expander in to stretch the muscle (traditional implants tend to be put in under pec muscle to protect it) and make it the right 'drop' for the silicone implant. I hope it will look symmetrical. Could be in for the long haul if I am not happy with the shape etc.
Morning Tulily, I had my last T on the 2nd June, se kicked in yesterday feel like rubbish. Can't eat yet again food makes me want to vomit.
I keep telling myself in 3 weeks I am going to feel better. Good luck for today. For me it was such a relief when they took my canular out and I was out the chemo unit door.
Now have to wait for the rest of hospital appointments for the operation and rads.
Its been a big struggle for us all but we are nearing the end now.
sue X X X
I am still hanging in there! Had my last T yesterday and now waiting for the SEs to kick in, usually tomorrow afternoon, then I shall take to my bed for a few days! Will have to continue with three weekly Herceptin until about mid March.
Due to have surgery next then rads but haven't had an appointment yet, will have to ring my BC nurse if I haven't heard soon.
As you have all said we will still need everyone's support to get through to the end! Take care of yourselves. Xxx
still here😄Think we have all relied on each other through this awful time. You must be so relieved ....yay, no more. Hope your 'toilet' problems are better this time....I should think they were concerned after what you've been through !!!!!!
my journey still continues with op and rads so will still be on here.
Love and hugs to you all Xxxxxx
Hi girls where is everyone? Come on let's know how you are all doing. Miss the catch ups.
Hope your all ok. Don't leave now still need your support, like you will need everyone else's.
sue x X X
Yep last one ever I hope, they had to reduce my T yet again they are concerned about how much diorea I am having. Come home yet again with a bag of pills. My cabnit looks like boots pharmacy.
Was so glad to get out of there.
sue X X
all good here, out and about as much as I can. Of course still feel tired but don't actually sleep during the day. I am so glad you are getting on with life, can't believe we've actually finished chemo. It's been like wading through mud for the last few months. I am finding that getting out walking is helping and for building my muscles up. Good luck with the rads....I have my op in 2 weeks then rads. Big hugs xxx
Sue, I hope all went well, congrats on completing your chemo, yay...no more. Xxx
everyone else, just keep going you will get there and will surprise yourself how soon you will start to recover from the side effects. Xxx
Right ladies my song, and now the end is near and I must face my final curtain , I state my case of which I certain, I've live a life that full and traveled each and every high way, much more much more then this I did it my wayyyyyyyyyyy. Lol lol lol
steroids taken, ready for my last chemo tomorrow. How the hell I have got through this I don't know, Manys a time I wanted to give up but you all kept me going. Now got 3 weeks of feeling crap and that's that.
Had more get up and go to day due to the steroids, so got the house in order. Ironing done, hoovering done, kitchen floor cleaned oh yes and my second home washed as antibaced the bog.
toilet rolls a plenty.
Need to buy some food drinks as I know I won't want food for about 5 days.
Well ladies you all take care.
sue X X X X
Well ladies went to see the surgeon today, no hope of a breast reduction, lumpectomy on the cards and nodes removed don't know how many. My last chemo Thursday at last. Then I have got to have radiotherapy. Sick of going to hospital. I also had pictures taken of my boobs from the neck down. I said to the doc they better not land up on face book. Lol I forgot I had taken my wig off in the docs room and I didn't put it back on, the bloody looks you get. So next on the list is a CT scan then the op I surpose.
My hair looks like bum fluff lol.
Hope hope your all keeping as well as you can.
