Fairly quiet here which seems to usually be a good sign that most peole are doing family stuff, but to those feeling rough, big love and we're on the cusp, we're halfway through, some 2/3 of the w ay through, so armed with what we know and the insight we get from others here, there is light at the end of the chemo tunnel...of course thers still rads, herceptin, tamoxifen(all for me) but we are climbing the mountain to being cancer free, and although sometimes we stop and feel its all too much, others put out their hand to pull us up and to carry on!. Im so proud to be sharing this journey with a great group of strong, compassionate and amazing ladies and i really do look forward to a future cancer free and with a whole load of new friends.
Im getting my mo-jo back its defiantely accumalative in my cae, each cycle has left me a little more "meh", headachy adn spaceed, but maybe no steroids has made it easier in some ways??. Will be interesting to see how i get on once i take them with "T".
Cress hope you feel less "flattened" and more perky again soon. Did you have nausea with T, i have the 5 FSG injections 5 days after chemo, wonder if they continue on Tax?.
Nicola...Orineteering/runing, you make me feel inadequate, definately gives you the super fit JJ crown lol ;-). Hope you had a good time in Scotland, i lived there for a few years, Ayshire and Outer Hebrides, have to say i dont miss it though.
Jill, oh you do make me chuckle, it sounds a bit like Mrs Browns Boys, your sons certainly keep you on your toes. Take it easy though and dont rush about too much. I do think we feel sons cant manage quite as well as daughters..
Sandra, enjoy seeing your grandson, i bet he'll not be fazed by "alfresco scalp", in fact he'll probably be checking everyone else in the family. Its so nice to have BC free time with family/friends, lovely that you have such good friends and cute pupies always cheer us up...
Jackie, have a nice w/e away, glad to hear the anniversary went well, have some grown up quality time ;-).
Chelle, think its Debs thats down for 4 cycles, better double check though. Enjoy manchester, do you shop there too or mainly spend time with family. i pottereed into town as its markert day but just cant be doing with crowds, so came home with a packet of batteries and that was it lol.
Ann, ouch sounds like youre having a sore time, (least there was some eye candy). Hope it starts to improve, but if you do end up with a port, it really isnt as bad as you imagine although with the riding etc it would need covering up. But maybe with 2 doses left you'll manage without. Anyway take care and keep an eye on things.
Ok so im off to relax, seem to have no real appetite, but probably just fed up of doing all the cooking, food prep etc, im sure if someone gave me something i hadnt had to organise id enjoy it.
Oh i think i the only one still cold capping-correct me if im wrong-but does anyone know if T is better than FEC on the hair situation?. Ive been on FEC 100 which is meant to be the hair eater, so have a feeble hope that i may end up keeping what i have??.(sorry if that sounds insensitive, if you saw what i have its not pretty lol).
Have a good rest of day and hope we're all doing ok.
