Good luck for the 11th.......try not to worry about it.....it is nothing like your mind has convinced you!
You probably won't sleep the night before because you will be worrying......... but honestly the whole session is very calm...with no pain. Once you have had the chemo you will feel more relaxed. I went out shopping with hubby after first chemo.......felt tired about 4 hours later....... but no nasty surprises.
I hope you have purchased all your bits n bobs in preperation........ we all have long lists of what to have in lol
Sending you lots of best wishes xxx Donna
Sorry to hear of your long delay
Chemo usually starts 5 weeks post surgery if no complications.
Keep being strong - once you start the chemo you will hopefully feel like you are on your journey to your cure
Please don't worry too much aboutthe chemo....your mind tortures you more than the treatment. The care is excellent and you will get through it....just take one day at a time
Sending you best wishes and hugs - Donna x
Can anyone tell me how long it took them to start treatment?
Things seem to be draggiging on as I was diagnosed on the 31st Dec 2013 but was delayed by 3 surgeries.
Hi Stedie, Hope it goes well for you today, once you've started your chemo you could join us on the May Chemo thread, we have a good group with lots of helpful advice as we are learning together..Don't be scared the side effects aren't good but some suffer worse than others and they give you help advice and anti sickness drugs so you don't feel to bad. When they administer the Chemo the surroundings are generally calm and it doesn't hurt
