Thanks all for your support, I've just got back from the Marsden, I had chest xrays and Ct scan Friday, chemo suspended, and the pain team came to see me, I'm on tablet slow release morphine, paracetamol, ibuprofen, something for the sharp pain, sennacot and stomach tablets, instead of liquid oramorph I have tablets instead. It might need tweeking up or down but she thinks she's got it about right. So in the kitchen is a pharmacy corner. I'm in bed as I only got three hours sleep last night then in for bloods at 8:30 this morning so I'm in pain still. Onc gave me the full once over and told me not to panic as there were alternatives for me. Ive had enough of writing as I'm tired.
Dear Blanna, I've just been reading this thread. I'm new to all this and I can't offer you any real words of advice or experience but I just want you to know that you are in my thoughts and I am sending you positivity and strength for your meeting tomorrow. Don't give up. Love to you xx
Please try to remain calm I know it is not easy when you are faced with the thought it is spreading. I was in the same state last October when my bone mets increased by 5 and my skin mets are now covering most of my chest stomach and side. Your medical team will sort you out with a scan and possibly a change of treatment but they will give you more confidence tomorrow. Remember cancer feeds on stress don't let it get you down.
Sending you loads of love and (((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))) and good vibes for tomorrow. xxx
Blanna - joining the others and offering hugs and all good wishes. So sorry to hear you are in such pain - hubby obviously did the right thing in ringing the unit for you. Wishing good luck for tomorrow. There should be plenty of other options, treatment-wise, for you.
Oh Blanna .. its horrid to think of you in such pain but lucky enough you are having scans etc and hopefully they will get your pain sorted our urgently with some better pills.
Sending you hugs and loads of positive vibes ..........
Thanks Nicky, my husband ended up phoning the Marsden in the early hours, I had to take my oramorph every hour,because the pain was Un bearable.
This morning the bc nurse phoned and is referring me to the palliative care team as a matter of urgency. I did tell her I thought it had spread and she asked about when my next scans were, I'm in on Wednesday so should know what their thoughts are on the spread.
Sorry you are in discomfort and also worried about your treatment. I'm sure you will be discussing these with your oncologist on Wednesday and they will be the people to tell you what is going on. I hope they give you some positive answers and, if the current treatment doesn't appear to be working, that they start you on another treatment ASAP.
Sorry I can't be of more help but do let us know how things go and you know we are here to support you.
I hate predictive text too.. if I don't double check what I type.. the posting can look really weird.
