I've been meaning to post every day this last week but haven't found time. Been keeping up with reading posts on my mobile though and thinking of you all. There are so many of us with sore feet, hands, arms, boobs etc at the moment - good vibes and big hugs to everyone. We know it will all pass eventually, but it doesn't make it any easier while it's all going on. I am seeing my onc on Wednesday and have a list as long as my sore arms (Vanns, mine are also with indented veins) of Qs for her. Hope she has a lot of time!!!! In my case, feet continue to be the biggest on-going problem. I feel 100 years old most of the time when I try to walk.
I've read back over the last few pages of posts since I last contributed - so many topics have come up that I'm going to have to be a bit selective in replies. In no particular order .... Campo, well done you on getting the all-clear; Pixie, you know I'm thinking of you with your portacath probs; Gaynor, it's me going on the REACT trial - will start this following my onc appt on Wednesday; Ambarose, amazing you managed to climb Snowdon - well done you; Big M, good luck for getting the results of your MRI (tomorrow I think), let us know the outcome; Vanns, congrats on gun dog trials; Little Chick, hope the cording is better soon; Gadget-gal, hope the disclosure of bc had the right effect - how ever did you manage to keep it from your employees that you have bc, all the time you were going through chemo, hair loss etc??
Pixie, I thought your candle message at relay for life was truly wonderful - thank you.
Hair: mine is growing quite well now, but is so fine and fair that I still look bald as a coot. Nevertheless I am now very bold about whipping my cap or scarf off in public places! I seem to have stopped worrying about it so much. Pixie, I loved the story about someone saying how much she liked your short style. Pepihorse, Sarabee, so pleased you have started regrowth at last.
Nails: some of you seem to have awful problems with ridges and discoloration. I really feel for you. I just have different coloured rings beneath mine, different shades of red and pink. Some toenails are lifting but I am keeping everything crossed they don't come off. Sounds awful.
Now, here's a question with an explanation first .... my OH and I have decided my tattoos are really tiny butterflies, so small that no one else can tell but we know what they are!! OH even went online to see which were the best and most exotic dark blue butterflies and has decided my tattoos are actually 3 little tiger eye swallowtails. I mentioned my butterflies to Southpool and she says she will always think of her tattoos now as dolphins. So come on bunnies, let us know what your tattoos really are ....????
Rads are going OK. 5 down, 20 to go. Painfree but a chore having a 2 hour plus journey every afternoon for 5 mins of zapping, like so many other buns. Campo, I send thanks to you every day when I am lying there for enrolling me in the spa. As soon as I lie back and the big light comes on I transport myself to Spa del Campo. It is brilliant! Love it.
That's all for now - sorry to those I haven't mentioned but I send love to everyone. Not long now to bunnyfest ....!!
Lots of love, margiexxxx
