Well done Daffodil weight loss and exercise very impressive.
Hope you enjoyed the show Woolfie, looking forward to seeing you soon.
Angela hope the sun and sangria are putting roses on your cheeks!
I must say not being able to scroll back makes including everyone really difficult as my short term memory is pants! Hope everyone has good results from their follow ups XOXOXO
Well I had my x-ray, mammogram and ultrasound yesterday and got the results straight away - No Evidence of Disease!!!! yeah, which was a great relief after I overheard the radiographer say there was an anomaly that needed checking, hence the ultrasound, which was not scheduled - just calcification confirmed by the senior bod, who also said he couldn't find any lymph nodes on my surgery side, and complimented my surgeon for his diligence!
Good to hear everyone is doing ok. Woolfie good results, I hope it stops leaking soon though.
I too have my appointment this week but don't have a mammogram though, maybe because I had my last scan in July. I'm relieved that I'm not having a one as still quite tender after rads & ribs too, is that normal?
I joined a gym 4 weeks ago as chemo weight was going nowhere fast, despite going 5 times a week I have lost 2lb! But am sleeping alot better, was waking every 2 hours before. Also probably need to cut down on eating, easier said than done in this weather.
Good to hear how everyones doing still, I try to keep as busy as possible so that I don't worry about everything.
Take care & hope everyones appointments go well xxx
Hi Nipinuk, suzy & woolfie hope you are doing ok. i read Nipinuk's mail first about george clooney and "your new one" and thought she meant a new boob! my mind was running over time!
my onco consultant is at least 12...he looks so young (and good looking too)!
it's been raining here a great deal too, but we live on the side of a mountain, so no danger of flooding. i too feel for those who year after year recently seem to be flooded, and over christmas and the winter makes it 10 times worse. my S on his new development lives on a floodplain i believe...whats wrong with these developers, dont they research? still, who could have predicted the worst flooding since the 1700's? when it rains here, we cant see anything but cloud right up to our window!!!
i'll be coming back to uk at the end of july/beginning of august, so if there's a meet organised, i'll try to make it there. there is a camp we have to attend 2-9th august at ashburnham near battle, sussex.
we're currently looking for a de-humidifier as we found 2 pairs of shoes with furry coats and one pair with mould...the houses arent built for winters!
Hope your all keeping dry and haven't suffered from storm damage!
Angela, there's dieting and there's disappearing, Nipinuk is right!
Hope all those who can make it to the lunch o9n the 5th can make use of Nipinuk's link.Does that mean you are joining us Nip?
I was to have my follow up on the 21st, but my onco has gone and retired so they re-booked me for the 11th - no big deal really but I wish they hadn't messed me about
Take care xoxoxox
Nipinuk, I sent you a message x.
Albamasam, I cold capped had fec-t too but wasn't as successful as you, had to wear wigs as I had bald areas. I finished chemo at the end of june, clippered it short then by the end of october it was just about long enough to have a permanent colour again with a few highlights. They do recommend that you leave it 6 months though & your hair could be fragile. My hair has come back the same as Pammys, thicker & curly too.
I hope everyones ok & not getting too stressed regarding appointments looming again.
I keep meaning to ask, does anyone feel queasy every so often on tamoxifen, it seems to last a day or two then disapears but nearly has me reaching for my stash of domperidones!
Lovely to hear from everyone still, take care ladies xxx
Not posted for awhile I'm afraid. We are all coming up to our year on appointments - I hope we all have a positive outcome, its such a very scary time, I'm trying not to think about it. Ironically my OH has his anual scan at the begining of March too, althoug he has had NED for six years its still an anxious time.
Nipinuk - so sorry I can't make your inivation to lunch! Hope you all have a great time!
If anyone is free the 4th 5th or 7th of March to meet for lunch in London it would be great to see you.
Take care and Bon Courage my friends xxxxx
Ooooh! I'm happy to try and bring forward our Marchies get together as we would love to see you. Would you be free on Thursday morning, 23/1 at around 10.30am? I'll get in touch with the others and let you know.
Grrr - I'm back in the waiting room again! I can expect the results in a week, but may take as much as three. I'm hanging on to the thought that they would ring if I had some anomolies. Comedy moment when the technician asked if I had any worries about my right side, I replied that I didn't have a right breast...... except that I do, I don't have a left breast but am renowned for getting L and R mixed up so am no longer allowed to give directions in the car! I must have been more worried about it than I thought.
Angela, your New Year sounded great! Is there any chance of a meet up whilst you are back?
Daff - lovely to hear from you. Hope you are recovering well, and looking forward to the new year. xx
Best wishes to all,
Hi ladies, just popped in quick,
Mungosmum, I hope your check went well & anyone else who is due around now. Mine isn't until February.
I hope you are all ok & are coping with this dreadful weather. Angela, what's the weather like in Alicante?
Take care everyone xxx
Happy New Year to all the wonderful Marchies!
I think is has all been said by others, but I have found this thread an immense help in coping with the past year. I am sure everyone will be coping with the annual check around now, I have mine on the 6th January, the anniversary of my diagnosis! I should have planned that one better.....
We had a lovely quiet christmas and a great New Year, I even managed my first dance of 2013 before midnight!! Legs paying for it today, but worth the return to normality!
I wish everyone a happy, healthy 2014. Let's make it memorable for all the right reasons. xx
Wishing you all a very happy & healthy new year too. Thankyou for all your support too girls xxx
Pammy, I am finding it hard to adjust too so must be part of our journey & will get better with time xx
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hope everyone has a great celebration tonight, I'll raise my glass to you all and there will be love and best wishes winging their way across the ether from deepest France to wherever you are as the clock strikes 12!
I can't help welling up with emotion, but then that's allot to do with the Scottish side of me, and I haven't even had a dram yet! Cheers my dear friends, here's to a healthy 2014, may all your dreams come true.
