Hope u r all having a good weekend and not suffering to much.
Eeek it's the day before chemo starts and I'm very nervous. Family all coming over this afternoon, which would normally be great to see them all. One of my son's proposed to his girlfriend last nite and there is a ring and everything that goes with it. Sounds very selfish of me but she is ok but very snooty and her family that we haven't met yet are to. Our family are very down to earth . So I never feel comfortable when she's at ours. Today I just want to lounge around in my jogging bottoms and hoody and do what I want to do. That's not going to happen.
I want to spend time with grandson on my own, that's not going to happen either. Sorry for rant. Sue xxx
thank you for your reply - has given me some hope. The sore patch is definitely smaller today and not as bad as it was either but I am losing a lot more hair than I would expect on a normal day (what's a normal day any more!) and I am terrified that it will fall out in clumps....
My daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandchildren are coming up on Tuesday and will be with me till Saturday - the boys are 2.5 and 1 - so they will keep me busy! I'm hoping that I will react as well to the second chemo session on Wednesday.
My thoughts will be with you tonight and I hope you are well enough for the chemo tomorrow.
could be some kind of heartburn/indigestion? I had it a lot in week 1 and 2 and took lots of indigestion tablets, oncologist suggested I take omeprazole during my next cycle - just whilst i take the steroids and tablets

Tried to respond to your private message but after typing war n peace...lol, it wouldn't send & I've lost the whole thing!! Eek 😕
Would you PM me again & perhaps, if you don't mind, pop your personal email info on there so I can respond to you properly that way?
Hope to hear from you soon.
I had my first chemo on 8th October and used the cold cap. Had 3 days in hospital as I was neutorpenic and had a throat infection this week but otherwise my appetite has remained unaffected and I have been lucky not to feel too tired. Monday for blood tests to see if I ca have the second dose on Wednesday.
Just this morning a patch of my scalp around the crown of my head is very sort - almost like it is burnt, the rest of my head is fine - but the crown is so sore I can't touch it - has anyone else had this? and if so can I do anything about it?
