Been for 2nd cycle today. Only took 3 attempts to get cannula in so getting better!
Feel ok so far but not eaten anything yet. Was very cold and icy today so was wrapped up well today, plenty of layers and 2 pair of socks. Even wore a hat due to thinning hair!
Sorry to hear you have been so poorly CK, hope you are soon feeling better x
Supersusan, mine started coming out about 2 weeks after first session. I've still got a good covering but can't do anything with it. Thinking of getting it cut/shaved later today. Not had any real pain with it but did wake up last night with a weird feeling on my head and pillow was covered in hair this morning for first time. I asked the Onc about effects building up as cycles progress and she told me that if I tolerated the first one well the rest will be very similar. The main increase is in tiredness and fatigue apparently [and presumably picking up bugs etc]. My next cycle is 27th December so I'm going to enjoy Xmas and hibernate at new year! At least I will be half way through by then x
Mags, glad you seem to be doing ok and getting out and about x
Col123, I've got the Red Sea parting too and its starting to bother me. Rest of it is stuck up all over the place. I look like a mad woman, feel like it sometimes too lol Seeing my niece the hairdresser this afty so will get it really cropped or maybe a number 4. I expect to feel emotional once its done and will probably have a good cry, but as I keep getting told it will grow back [bet I hate it when it does too, probably be grey and tight curls so it looks like an old fashioned granny perm!] Hope you feel better about it soon. And I certainly wasn;t snazzy this morning with all my layers, felt like a trussed up turkey! x
Stellanbraska, I'm hitting the water as we speak, started yesterday and will make a big effort over next few days too. Sorry its got you but hope you feel better soon x
Deeh, I've not had any incontinence problems as such but there have been a few times when I've only made it by the skin of my teeth, for both bits. With all the water, etc I'm drinking today I'm keeping within arms reach of the loo! Might be worth mentioning to the nurse, just to be on the safe side in case its the start of an infection. I'm also trying to look on the bright side of all these side effects, saving money on shampoo, conditioner, razors, etc. Take care x
Glad you are feeling better Jellymould, can't believe how cold it is today. Thank god I have a good excuse to snuggle up on the settee and watch xmas films with the xmas lights on
Hope everyone else is feeling as well as can be expected x
Keep strong and carry on sparkling!
