Re: Finished chemo!

Congratulations on getting through the chemo Morwenna. Best of luck with the Radiotherapy - we'll be checking for your post on completion of that in the future! 🙂

The best thing about chemo is that it is so nice when you stop.

Re: Finished chemo!

Hi Morwenna, we seem to be on the same time schedule here. I've got rads planning on 17th July and start week later.
Your social events must certainly keep you busy. That's a good thing because if you're anything like me, as soon as you have nothing to occupy your mind you start imagining stuff and worrying.

Re: Finished chemo!

Thankyou everyone for your good wishes! ❤️

I'm triple neg, so no tamoxi-whotnot or herceptin for me! I guess I don't know whether that's a good thing or not! I just have to hope all my chemo drugs have hit the spot, even though I don't know if I have any spot left to hit! ..... which is a bit odd.

I'm on a herceptin trial for "HER_2 low", patients, but I'm in the control arm, so I'm not actually getting the drug. My positive take on that is two-fold: At least I don't have to have herceptin for a year, when it is not necessarily going to make a difference, and at least I will be closely monitored for the duration of the trial, so hey! It's a win-win really! 🙂

I feel good today, high on steroids, I went deep water exercising, and tomorrow we are going to see Les Miserables which is the London production on tour in North America!

I'm booked into a watercolour for beginners course at a local cancer support centre on Saturday, then next week it is Canada Day on Monday, and my group is singing at a citizenship ceremony for New Canadians, which is both fun and an honour! 🙂 .... then on Tuesday we have the chorus BBQ to look forward to. Thursday I'm going to a one day education symposium on lymphedema, which I think I'm just teetering on the edge of, .... my arm feels achy after fairly minimal activity, and my hand gets puffy ..... well I have to have something to worry about, don't I! 😉

Anyway, yes, onward and upward it is! 😄

Re: Finished chemo!

Hi Morwenna, I've been lurking on this forum for a few weeks now waiting for the right time to jump in (I'm to be a "July Something" - not decided on name yet) and I've seen some of your posts, many of which have been supporting others. I just wanted to say that radiotherapy will be a complete breeze after chemo. You really have nothing to worry about. People told me that I might feel a little tired, but I didn't even feel that. Really really not a problem x

Re: Finished chemo!

Reading your post Morwenna has lifted and inspired me! I have been angry mad woman, only diagnosed yesterday, and I am already looking forward to when I can write the words "Finished chemo". Keep up your posts, you are an inspiration to me. xxx

Finished chemo!

Yup, New avatar in place!

Now just to regroup and get ready for radiation therapy to start on July 22. I'm feeling a bit tired and emotional, but the support and encouragement from all of my lovely friends and family just lifts me up.

Bring it on! I say. 😄

Edit: my nails look a bit yucky, but never mind! 😮
