Well the port is out. Hopefully that draws a line under all treatment. Was relatively quick and painless but I did have to sit around waiting without food all day - didn't get done until 5pm! Feel ok but tired and stiff.
Good luck for Tuesday Rachel. x
Rachel one day in the sun and the bruise disappeared. We had UV3 here in Cornwall for 3 days running. Now it's October we are down to UV2 but the sun still feels really strong!
Hi Den, I had mx end of October and the drains came out on day 3 and day 5. That was a bit too previous for me. I had two aspirations by BCN with 500ml+ ea ch time so the CS replaced the drain. This came out after about two weeks. They really didn't want to leave it in after a week but it was still busily dripping away . After I had it out I felt I needed aspiration again but the risks of infection were higher than the discomfort so I went with medical advice. I need to point out I am well over 60 and often bleed and bruise easily. Also because I had mx after chemo I was still putting away about 3-4 litres of fluids a day. I wondered if it had been a brighter time of year whether I would have had this problem. Hope this helps. Good luck with yours.
Jo it does seem long if only cos the weather's stuck in the August groove. It seems ages til half term. Port out=one more step to normality? Whatever that is??? thinking of you.
Yes really excited ....going away for a few days to the seaside leaving grumpy cats with the neighbours. While I was at our meet-up one of them pee-ed over my patchwork project. Took me ages to rinse it out carefully, Dry it and then iron it. It looks okay now. All needlework now safely locked away! This is quite a week. Managed to hit myself on the lip with a chair while preparing to change a light bulb in the dark. Luckily the bruise can be concealed by makeup. I think my body is telling me I need a break. Rest well you guys I will be On the Beach thinking of you.
Speaking of sewing, Marie and Jane, I gave my 6 year old grandson a first steps embroidery kit (different patterns on Aida) and he is over the moon, stitching away listening to stories and such. And his sister (who got a sewing kit from me last year) is now learning crochet. So I feel content that these old fashioned skills are carrying on. An antidote to fear about the future!
So glad you're finding the cooling necktie helpful Marie. I tried to sew it very neatly for you, knowing that you're a professional!
My that was fun! Let's have another meetup sometime! Thanks to Aly and Rachel especially but really thanks to all of you for being such lovely Moonbeams!.
Thanks Barbara- I bought an open return. So I can take any train...which will probably turn into a bus at some point. Have Kindle, will travel...
Starting to get excited now!
I'm going to the train station today FINALLY to buy my ticket. I've had a hellish week and simple things like reading my texts have been a luxury! Starting to get excited about seeing you all.
What time on Sunday are we splitting up?
not sure which ticket to buy...
All ok at onc today but they are not ready to discharge me. I need a further ECHO in 2 months and then a follow up appointment in 3 months. They still want to keep an eye on things for a bit longer...Not sure if that is a good thing or not!
Yes my onc says that too Barbara although I find it hurts most first thing in the morning as I get up - not sure why that would be. Yes new term starts tomorrow and a class with two thirds boys! Perhaps that why i don't feel so great....LOL. Are you going back or have you left now?
Feeling a bit rough this last couple of days. Generally unwell feeling, nothing specific. Still getting pain in breast and getting myself a bit worked up again. There is always that question isn't there?
I can't believe the meet up is finally happening. I am driving so can also do pick up if needed. I have emailed my mobile number so just let me know - I won't be there before 3ish though. Zuzy I might join you for a pedicure if you are ok with that? Do we need to prebook?
Had my last Herceptin yesterday and hoping to be discharged on Monday when I see the Onc. Fantastic but also scary.
Just booked a 3 day trip to Barcelona in half term with my daug so got that to look forward to now.
