I tried doing a posting on Tuesday night but it never appeared so I hope this one gets on ....
Well, the chemo cat came out of her corner yesterday and leapt on this perky bunny yesterday afternoon for FEC2. She was a bit of a pain while the red E was going in, kept scratching away at my little bunny paw, but the brave little bunny fought her off and the rest of the infusion of lovely sparkly get well soon carrot juice went in fine. Chemo cat is back in the corner awaiting the next session!!!
Once again, I'm being really fortunate so far and other than being very tired I'm OK. Last time I was totally fine on the Thursday and the SEs I did have (luckily for me all pretty minimal) kicked in on the Thursday night on through to about the following Tuesday. We'll see what happens. Went to see the surgeon today for a quick follow up - he's happy with everything and the fat necrosis I mentioned in an earlier post requires no treatment. It should eventually sort iiself out.
Sarah12 hope you're feeling a bit better today. Elaine, hope your FEC2 goes OK today. Hope all others having chemo this week, first and second timers alike, that it you have an OK time.
Vanns, good that you are getting sicky meds sorted. Loved your idea about having hair shaved off for charity - I keep telling people that's the only reason why I've gone bald..... I answered the door to the postman yesterday without thinking about my egghead - he was a bit surprised!!!!!
Sharon, my scalp was really sore every time I touched my scalp when I was at your stage. SO much better when it's all gone. I've just had a delivery of bits from heads4hats including a couple of caps (rain forest baker boy and white polka dots) which I am REALLY pleased with. Their zandanas are OK but I think my heads perhaps a bit on the large side for them so they will be for garden use! I mae it to the gym on Tuesday and wore a regular baseball cap but went commando for my zumba class and got very supportive comments from everyone.
Natalie, I'm enjoying Sainsbury's old Jamaica ginger ale lo-cal for stimulating the tastebuds, also pure apple juice half and half with sparkling water is refreshing.
Hope the forum continues to sort itself out ... I'm missing the quick link to saved discussions. It's a bit of a palaver to get into our fav thread at the moment. Wasn't it terrible without it for those few days!
Love to everyone (come back soon chief bunny pixie).
