Re: Results back

Hi Jintz. Brilliant news regarding having got rid of all the cancer. I had delayed wound healing so chemo was delayed too which didn't help my frame of mind. I was dreading it. However it is definitely doable. My first cycle was by far the worst. I had chemo on a Friday. By Thursday the following week I was ready to call it a day. I remember texting my sister saying how dreadful I felt. Afterwards my mum told me my sister had been really worried as I never admit to feeling ill. However that was the worst day. The next day I felt significantly better. I kept a diary of symptoms as suggested by somebody on here. That meant I knew what to expect each cycle and it became just another thing to get through. Looking back now it seems another person was going through it not me.
The biggest tip I ever had though was take all the nausea medication they offer on time. Do NOT wait if you feel ok. And if you have symptoms tell your oncologist and they'll adjust things for the next dose. It really does fly by xxx

I think a lot of it is the fear of the unknown when we come across each new part of our treatment but when we get into it then it does not seem quite as bad and daunting as we first thought.

Re: Results back

Thanks Ladybowler,
I think the treatment is more daunting than the actual diagnosis !
Roll on Wednesday and we'll see 🙂

Results back

Hello all,
So I got my results back today and they got all the cancer out ! Start chemo on Wednesday next week and then RT and then hormone tabs.
Very relieved and thankful but also a tad nervous of treatment.
Any advise ?
Thank you
Jeanette
