Re: MARCHING Together

Thanks Rosemary, think I'll turn up at GP surgery as soon as they open tomorrow and see if they'll squeeze me in, stupid to be this worried I'm sure, but you know what it's like, am fearing the worst.

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Sharon
I would call your gp for an urgent appt. If need be cry down the phone and play the BC card. Failing that do you have any drop-in medical centres where GPs are available without appointment or registration? Best to get it checked even if it proves to be nothing.
Let us know how you get on xxx

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi ladies,

 

Am getting myself into a panic today.  Patch on ribs, both elbows and inside of upper arm on the treated side has been aching for a few days and I put it down to my brain playing tricks as my annual check up is due.  But this morning I woke up to find a long thin bruise sort of thing running down the inside of my upper arm on the treated side, looks a bit like a vein that is bruised (sort of red, green, yellow with black blotches). So, clearly not all in my mind after all. Tried googling and got scary answers (DVT, cellulitis etc) so put the internet away sharpish! 

 

Should I try to get a GP appointment do you think even though that will probably take a few days, or just hang on until I see the surgical bods on Thursday?

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi all!
So sorry things are so bleak for you, Francine. I don't feel qualified to offer any meaningful advice but would say to follow your instincts. There may be a point when you just have to say enough is enough and damn the consequences.
Sharon, good to hear you are still happy in your job. You're not the only one who imagines that every little twinge is a sign of something sinister. I think my follow up will be on the anniversary of my 2nd op so that will be in late January.
Puddytat is still feeling sorry for himself. He doesn't like the special food and has always been a big eater. He's just going to have to get used to it though. Ordered about 10 varieties online so surely some of them will suit.
Spent the day with my heavily pregnant daughter and the twins. I played while she took a much needed nap (son in law away on business for a week )so I am now shattered. I had to be the naughty schoolgirl while they were teacher and teacher's aide. Then we had a disco to the songs from Frozen - so tired of Let it Go!!!
Time for a nap myself I think.
Judi (Ollisj) and I are still hoping we can sort out a group meeting. As we are the Marchers could we maybe look to a date in March? What do you all think?
Thoughts are with you all
Love

Re: MARCHING Together

Afternoon all Smiley Happy

 

Fuffs I don't think I can advise you as it is such a personal decision but I really feel for you, it's just so miserable when you feel too exhausted to even think properly never mind trying to function.  Awful position to be in so I hope you can reach a decision that feels right to you.

 

Rosemary that sounds more positive (although its a sad day when something like that counts as a positive!) I'm still sending every possible good vibe your way and trusting your GP is right.  Hope you don't have to wait too long to hear.  Sad news about your little kitkat so I hope he is on the mend.  Emergency trips to the vet definitely aren't cheap are they.

 

Got my annual follow-up on Thursday and the moment the appointment was confirmed earlier this week everything started to ache and I've since developed every single deadly disease known to man (all in my head of course) so I'll be very pleased to get it over with.  

 

Love to you all

Re: MARCHING Together

Sorry Rose, meant to say that I'm pleased to hear that your neck pain is not likely to be anything sinister. I know exactly how worried you feel. When all my glands swelled up I was convinced it was lymphoma, which my dad died from., but it was just them doing their job at fighting the infection. Your poor pussy cat. My old chap had a stroke when he was 17 and we decided to put him out of his misery, as he was unable to stand. I cried for weeks and still carry his name tag in my purse. My other cat lived a goodly number of years with kidney problems and special diet so I'm sure yours will too 😺😺

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Rose, Beryl, Sharon, it's the still not quite marching on person! Have had to interrupt my rads at day 13 of 25 as I was taken in to hospital with a nasty infection. Pumped full of antibiotics, lumbar puncture , all horrible. Now back home resting. Will be driving the consultants on Tuesday to decide whether to continue with them. I am physically and mentally exhausted and seem to have a zero immune system. Talked to my very lovely GP about it and she said it must be my decision and not to be forced into anything. I'm having my yearly mammogram in January anyway (it's been that long since I was diagnosed!) so anything still dodgy will be picked up. In my head I know I should carry on, after all I've been through, but my body and mind is saying stop. My business is slowly falling apart, my OH is battling on but is exhausted and I fear for his health (had a heart attack in 2014) Any wise words for me, such a difficult decision to stop the rads or not.

Re: MARCHING Together

Quick interim update: gp is convinced it's cervical spondylosis which though painful and progressive is not related to BC. Bone scan results should be back when I see him on Tuesday. So it's probably good news I suppose...
On another note my little Alfie cat had a fit on Thursday. An hour and a small fortune spent at the vet's to find he has kidney disease and will needs a spacial diet and medication for the rest of his life. Pet insurance only covers him for a year which is annoying. He's curled up feeling vary sorry for himself, poor little blighter.we both used to be so healthy!
Thanks for your concern, everyone. I will come back when I know for definite.xxx

Re: MARCHING Together

Just been googling bone scans Rose but can't find anything about waiting times for results...piece of string apparently.  Just hope it's something minor but the fear is just overwhelming isn't it.  Will keep an eye on this board for updates and am always here if you want to talk/whinge/cry at the unfairness of it all.

Re: MARCHING Together

Thanks Sharon. I go back to the gp on Tuesday so he should be able to discuss the xrays at least. I don't know how long bone scan results take. It's an all day thing. Radioactive dye and preliminary imaging in the morning then go back 4 hours later for the more intense stuff which takes about an hour. And I thought I was wasting the gp'S time. Got to be grateful for the speed and thoroughness. Still trying to convince myself it's a trapped nerve xxx

Re: MARCHING Together

Oh god Rosemary, don't know what to say, so worried for you and hope it turns out to be nothing and understand why you're panicking.  Nothing I can say or do to help so will just send you masses of hugs and good wishes.  When will you know more?

Re: MARCHING Together

Oh dear, here comes little miss bring you down! I have dreadful neck pain so went to the gp on Tuesday. He sent me immediately for xrays and today a letter arrived with an appointment for a bone scan on Wednesday. My late friend's mets first appeared in her neck so I'm panicking. But it might be nothing. They'really certainly moving fast though. Sorry this is all me, me, me but I'm very scared.

Re: MARCHING Together

Hello All

 

Still working on some stuff especially now. It was this week last year my dog died and I had an initial diagnosis. Then there was lots of humming and haaing and was it!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep.

 

Daughter is getting married next year and finally things are clicking into place - She wants to do it herself, gets angry at an anxious mother 'interfering'. What she doesn't realise is that this time last year I wasn't sure how well I would be for the wedding or anything else(tears in eye now)

Anyway dream wedding dress has been purchased and thanks to a private sale on Ebay has saved a £1000, so no complaints and it is perfect in everyway

 

Trip to hospital on Tuesday has resulted in me being even again. Looks really good and OH, who said I was fine admitted it looked better, so have a couple of friends - one commenting that I am now more even than she is with her real boobs Woman LOL

So now no probs with mother of bride outfit if I ever find anything suitable - daughter suggested vintage.

Absolutely no hat though (that's me said that!)

Nearly there Francine, fingers still crossed for you. So pleased Sharon, that your new job has really worked out well

Any one else I hope you are all continuing to heal in everyway and look forward to your posts

 

Love Beryl xx

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi ladies, so nice to catch up with everyone. Seems like we have known each other for years!  Well done Francine, nearly there and what will you do with your spare time. Ha, didn't we all feel like we had lost a friend when rads finished. At least there is a new Bond film out so I can see all those weird gadgets on the screen. Looks a great film but has anyone seen the trailer for the Maggie Smith film where she lives in a camper van. Oh, I have to see. Sharon, sounds great on the job front, so pleased it has gone well.  Pain in boob better since speaking with bc nurse but will kerp 30th appt to have a check. Mammogram due December, brings back memories of last year but we have to stay strong and positive.  Working in the medical centre I see so many referrals going through daily for bc checks and many are so young.  So, sending all the best wishes to you all, I still have to carve my pumpkin and hope not too many knock.  Have to tell you this though, very naughty but so good , sorry, trick or treat, give them a toffe apple which is not an apple, coat an onion in chocolate,  push in a stick and they will never know, until they take that bite!  Lol and millions of xxxxxxxxx

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi ladies, lovely to hear from you all Woman Happy

 

Still hanging in there Francine? Bet you've got that 'porn star on a bad day' pose down pat now haven't you? I guess you're at the red & itchy stage by now but hopefully nothing too worrying for you. I seem to recall going some funny colours about 3 weeks in, sort of puce colour (ewwwhh!) but it's gone now and I've no marks at all, not even a tan line.

 

Pandorra I'm so sorry you're still getting pain after all this time.  Must be annoying as well as painful, it's hard to believe that a disease that had no major symptoms initially can result in such brutal treatment isn't it. Hope it clears up for you soon and good luck for 30th with the surgeon.  Is that your annual check up? 

 

Good to hear from you Beryl & SueBee, sounds as if you're both moving on still but it seems frustratingly slow for both of you. I guess we have no choice but to just get on with it but won't it be great when it is finally over. SueBee if I'd known it would kill off the hair on my body I would definitely have asked to have had my legs done Woman LOL Definitely worth 25 sessions of radiation to avoid ever having to wax again!

 

Life is still going well for me: my new job is just wonderful, really love it and am getting to do all sorts of interesting things that don't really have anything to do with the work I'm paid to do but no one seems to mind. I'm feeling well too, no pain (other than a bit of an ache now and again which isn't much worse than normal hormonal aches were) and my stamina seems to be gradually coming back.  Just hope my annual check in November is good news so that I can enjoy this Christmas and forget all about last Christmas (seem to recall being a sobbing mess wondering if it would be my last!)

 

Love to you all

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Ladies!
Thinking of you all. We have been through so much. Francine March On...remember to play hookie a day or two if need be... I still have my tan square. You would think they could give us an even tan! Oh and the hair doesn't grow back so I was hoping they could do my legs! Who wants to shave legs anyway but No such luck. You must be close to half way now, yea!!!!
And I sympathize about your arm as I struggle with my shoulder too. Stay strong ladies!

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Beryl And Pandorra, lovely to hear from you. I'm nearly marching on, lol, only 10 months down the line! On day 6 of my 25 rads so should be finished by the end of November. Then only 2 months to my next mammogram, gulp. I can't wait to start swimming again but suppose I'll have to wait for my skin to heal. I've noticed that I'm starting to get sore already so by no 25 I think I'll be well cooked! Poor old boob, it's having in there, literally! Xx Francine

Re: MARCHING Together

Yay I'm in - had password probs just lately

 

Hi Fracine thoughts are with you every day - just follow all the advice you can from here - I think we know more as a collective brain than just a few medical ones (wink)

Had a shock on Friday, brought back a lot of those shakey unable to cope feelings - Mammogram letter arrived - I knew it was soon but the letter was still a shock. It's on the 25th November.

 

Have been fitted for a fillet this week, now waiting for delivery. What a larff! So many different shapes and lumps and bumps. LOL

I was unable to go swimming this week, have had a  sore(possibly a bite) which of course I couldn't feel untill it had gone nasty. Seems OK now but didn't want to risk swimming pool bacteria.

 

Hope all are well and enjoying life

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi lovely ladies, haven't popped in for awhile, where has the time gone. Thinking of you Francine, make sure you rest, it does knock you out. So pleased your job has worked well Sharon, makes you feel normal doesn't it. Hope everyone else doing well, anyone due for their mamo yet. I  had some horrible weeks with scar pain, just felt like glass but I  have to admit I wasn't massaging it as just didn't want to touch it. Anyway spoke with my bc nurse and I am seeing my surgeon on 30th, but in the last 2 weeks not as bad. Still wearing support bra and that seems to help.  Lol to everyone and xxxxxxxx

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Sharon. First three zaps over with, only 22 to go! Have got a fabulous volunteer driver from the RVS, think it used to be called the WRVS, which the hospital arranged for me. He picks me up every day, waits for me and brings me home, amazing. So different from the hospital transport system, once waited 6 hours to get home for them! I still cant't drive, as I'm having problems with my shoulder on the mangled boob side. They think it's nerve disruption from the three ops. Holding my arm above my head during the rads can be quite painful so I'm taking a painkiller before I go. I'm taking part in an observational study that Leicester is involved in, with the Americans I think, to try and discover why some people have skin problems with rads and others don't. They'll follow me through treatment and for a year after. How's the job going? Sounds like you were really enjoying it last time you posted. Can't wait to meet up with you at the carols. I spoke to the organisers yesterday, as I hadn't had my tickets and they said you should get them a couple of weeks before it. Xx Francine

Re: MARCHING Together

Morning Francine, how are you coping with the radiotherapy?  Hope it hasn't been a problem for you so far.  I found calendula cream/oil worked well and I swapped to those 'nighttime' soft stretchy bras with the deep elasticated bands and no fastenings for the duration and that  seemed to work (worked a whole lot better once I took the advice from someone on here to turn them inside out too Woman Tongue)

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Sue lovely to hear from you over the pond! I'm preparing for my 25 rad sessions which start tomorrow. I'll be working in my business in the morning, to help my husband out and then leaving about 2.30 for my appt. very luckily I 'be been assigned a volunteer driver arranged by the hospital to take me and pick me up. I can't drive at the moment, problems with my shoulder and my husband has just been started on some new meds and told not to drive for a month, timing could be better! What a shock to get a bill like that. We have to be so grateful in the UK that we have the NHS and at present no one has to pay for their Herceptin. However, the cancer drugs fund is under review so we can only pray that things stay as they are. I'm very much looking forward to meeting up with Sharon at the candlelight carol concert in London. I think we're probably as bad as each other so we'll probably have a really good laugh. My daughter is coming too which will be lovely as I don't see her very often. Off to an Elvis night at the end of November at the local eating place, should be fun. Xx Francine

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Everyone!
Sounds like a wonderful treat to meet up for a beautiful evening! It's so good to read and catch up a little. Francine I seem to keep everything so I looked for the burn cream prescription I was given and it's called Silver Sulfadiazine Cream by Ascend Laboratories. I skipped a couple days when I felt it was too much too. Seems they take us up to the point of very uncomfortable but able to endure somehow!
Life is busy for me working 30hrs and thinking of adding more. I too get tired Sharon but it's a good distraction, right? And yes the emotional thing for me seems to be once a month now...hmmmm? Although I must say I was emotional when my health insurance was accidentally canceled and I had an 11 thousand dollar herceptin treatment due the next day! Not good times.
Wishing you all well,
Sue

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Francine.  I had 25 as that was/is their protocol for DCIS. Seems odd that I had more than people with invasive cancer.  I started off using QV cream, which is aqueous cream basically, then switched to E45.  I went pink, then it tanned.  It wasn't really sore and it didn't break. The only issue I had was that my skin as a whole got more sensitive.  I had a reaction to a sun block on my next and upper chest - nowhere near the zapped patch. Then 14 days in, I developed an allergic reaction on my arms, I think to perfume.  That needed very strong antihistamines from my GP to shift.  Good luck with it all xx nearly over

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Maria. Glad you're feeling better now. I was told by Mr G the radiology consultant, Spanish chap, that as I have big boobs, I should have 25 sessions of a lower dose rather than 15 sessions of a higher dose. This is because skin problems can be worse in bigger booked ladies. Not sure if this is why you also had 25? It is a long haul for 5 weeks but I'm thinking of it as the last leg now. After 9 months of it, 3 ops and 10 days in Kettering Hospital, it can't come soon enough! Can I ask what cream you used on the boob and did you have skin problems?
Member

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Francine.  I had 25 days at the LRI.  It was okay.  Tiredness kicked in after 14 sessions, gradually got worse, peaked a week after, then I just got better every day.  I'm about 5 weeks post rads now and feel great.  Good luck with it.  Maria  x

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Sharon. Thank you for warning me about your singing. I shall bring some ear plugs, only joking! You haven't heard me yet! I used to sing in the car when taking my daughter to school and she used to beg me to stop. I love carols and always remember being taken by my parents to see the Xmas lights in London, no 88 to Marble Arch! Didn't have lasers in those days. It was a tradition to take my daughter to see Father Xmas in Harrods but my mum always took me to see Father Holly in Selfridges, all decked out in green velvet. Ah happy memories. I don't care how knackered I am, I'll be there! Beryl, you made me laugh with your swimming tales! I can't wait to start again but I suppose it won't be until the New Year probably, to give my skin time to settle down after the rads. I bet my muscles will be shouting at me the first few times. First time I tried water aerobics I thought it looked a doddle but the following morning I could hardly move! Sleep tight all. Francine xx
Member

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Beryl *waves at you madly*

 

So glad to hear some of the grey clouds have lifted and life is becoming fun again, woohoo! There's no point going through all this if we can't enjoy ourselves afterwards is there so I hope we all get years and years of good times now.  Good luck with your swimming, sounds like it's good exercise even if you do stray into other lanes (if I hear of a woman being attacked in a fit of swimming lane rage I'll know it's you Woman LOL)

 

Really looking forward to meeting you Francine as long as you feel fit enough by then of course.  I found the whole radiation thing pretty tiring from about two weeks in but hopefully you'll have a super easy time of it to make up for all the trials and tribulations along the way. Oh and I probably should mention that I can't sing at all, can't hold a note never mind an actual tune so while it will be lovely to meet, you might want to banish me to the other end of wherever you are sitting so that I don't ruin your evening (the fact that I CAN'T sing doesn't mean that I WON'T sing!)

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi there

Lovely to hear you are going to have a meet up. Christmas is always emotional anyway, meeting up will be an extra gift

 

I have finaly started swimming again - well managed the first week then last week on the way had a puncture. I left OH waiting for AA and took myself home, as you do!

Anyway - what a tricky thing to have to do (swimming that is) Had problems doing breast stroke, I know I found it really funny. When I stretch out and pull in the super stretched muscles that hold me together don't give.

Going on my back with one arm not as mobile as it used to be found myself heading in the wrong direction and into other peoples lanes !LOL

Still hoping things will gradually improve now.

 

All seem cheerfull.

Great that your job has worked out. Francine only a few more weeks, thinking of you

I seem to be coming out of some sort of black haze. I seem to have a lot more energy, sleeping better and generally more cheerful about life

Perhaps that's it - 1 year diagnosis anniversary coming up and I have a future Smiley Very HappySmiley Very Happy

 

Good wishes to all

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Sharon

Great to hear the job is going well. Life is strange, you probably wouldn't be doing it unless you had had BC. Will be glad to get the rads out the way. Typical, the day after my final one, I have to go to see the arse doctor for my checkup on the old bowels. To say I'm fed up with hospitals is rather an understatement! The carol concert sounds lovely so if you manage to go, we can meet up. X Francine
Member

Re: MARCHING Together

Morning Francine, phew, very pleased that you're nearly there and it's fantastic that it'll all be done before Christmas.  Means you get to enjoy the Christmas hols properly (although I expect you'll still be tired from the radiotherapy by that stage so hope you're going to let the family/friends run around sorting it out and not try to do it all yourself).  

 

Hope everyone else is doing well? The board is very quiet so I guess we've all got swept up in normal life again.  I can't decide if it's a good thing that the time has gone quickly or not.  Hard to believe my first annual check up is due soon, where on earth did a whole year go??  

 

New job is going well, I love it and they seem happy with me.  I'm coping with a full working day perfectly well but still finding that I don't have the energy to do much after work and really appreciate a rest at the weekend. I suspect that's as much to do with having had 18 months away from work as the whole cancer business though.  Had a few quiet, weepy moments as well, mostly through tiredness I think.  I've been catching up with old colleagues/friends now that I'm back at work and somehow or other having to explain why I've been away from work and seeing their reaction makes it seem a bigger deal than it felt at the time.  

 

Love the sound of the candlelit concert Francine, off now to find out more about that.  

love to all, hope you're all feeling good and doing well

Re: MARCHING Together

Evening ladies. I'm now nearly marching on! Start 25 sessions of rads on 14 October so should be all done by Xmas. Crikey it's been like running a marathon but never quite getting to the finishing line. Hope you are all good. I've just bought 2 tickets for the Breast Cancer Care candlelight carol concert in London on 30 November, only 10 left. Going with my daughter, as a 'goodbye cancer' treat and I think it might be quite emotional. X Francine

Re: MARCHING Together

Guess what girls, I have my appt to see the rads consultant on Tuesday, hooray! Never thought I'd be so keen to get a part of my anatomy fried! Hoping the fluid may have dispersed a bit by then Eileen but not looking good at the moment and painful. I'm on the paracetamol and massaging with Bio Oil. Can't drive at the moment and OH has hurt his leg so can't drive either so I'm using the hospital transport system to get there, great service.

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi Francine,
I had the same issue. Did have to have it drained in the end which I can't say was exactly fun but it wasn't too awful either! Only put me back by 2 weeks in total so you should be well finished by Xmas xx

Re: MARCHING Together

HI ALL!
FANTASTIC FRANCINE! !!! I am so so happy for you! Time for Some celebration I think. After surgery when I got good news everyone wanted to throw a party but I didn't really want to so November 18 I want to celebrate my last Herceptin infusion! Big Party! Looking back I think we should all celebrate each milestone. We are moving in the right direction ladies. Understandable that we feel overwhelmed at times.

I love to humor amongst us. It is a Great survival tool. Glad you're feeling better Rose.

Wonderful to hear the good news!

Re: MARCHING Together

Thank you Eileen and Pandorra, yep it's a great relief not to have more surgery. Just want to get the rads out the way now but have a problem with fluid behind the latest scar. Apparently they won't start until that's clear So I'm massaging it like mad! I may have to have it drained if it doesn't budge. Want to go away for Xmas so hoping all will be done and dusted well before then.

Re: MARCHING Together

Hi everyone - you must be so relieved Francine - radiotherapy should be a doddle after all you've been through. Glad you had a good holiday pandorra - I've just been walking in the Yorkshire dales at the weekend which was brilliant - and the sun shone too. Good your job going well Sharon. I have a moving forward session at the end of next month and mostly I am but there are always reminders. Love to you all xx

Re: MARCHING Together

Francine, so pleased for you. Take it easy and then party!! Just returned from boating holiday on Norfolk broads snd it was great. Just love being on the water, scenery beautiful and serene.  Hope everyone doing ok, suppose mamos are coming up for some, we certainly have a busy life dont we.  Received invite for the moving forward session, Sharon I believe you have already attended, so looking forward as seems very informative.

Hooray, no more surgery needed, clear margins. Will have 3 weeks of rads when the seroma has gone down and that will be that hopefully, apart from 5 yrs of Anastrazole.

Re: MARCHING Together

It seems as if you have a decision to make. Sorry I know what I would do, but I am not you, so will just say do what you feel is right for you and no one else not even OH.

Hard decision though - take care.

 

One other thing - although I am often warm the Anastrozole tropcal moments have calmed down quite a bit.
