Not posted for a while as I am still chilling in France. This moment it is beautiful sunshine, but it is likely to be a downpour any time now. It's one of those really changeable days, but good to be here. Thinking of Vanns on her sunny holiday ...
Big M, Sarah12, Amabarose and anyone else feeling 'bunny down', we are all here for you and hope you are better soon and back into posting on the forum. Pixie, take care. Look after yourself.
Gaynor - how awful having so many onc changes. Is it your onc team that follow you on the REACT trial (as it is with me)? How's that going? I have my first 3 monthly check up a few days before Christmas, so have to book myself in for ECG and blood test at the end of next week. I will be pleased to see the onc team (prob registrar) as I've been getting stabbing pains through my boobs again and my ribs are really sore under the left boob (bc boob).
All those of you talking recon past, present and future, I take my hat off to you all and thank my lucky stars I didn't have to go that route. I did say when I first had my diagnosis that I didn't want to be a 'monoboob', but don't know what decision I would have made had that been the case. Good luck to you all in making these big decisions. And yes, I can vouch for the fact that Sunny Southpool's silicone feels pretty fine. What a strange experience that was, standing by the buffet table at bunnyfeste copping a feel!!!!!
Christine, let us know how your scan goes and I hope (I'm sure) that it is just scar tissue xxx.
Speaking bunnyfeste, as I've offered to do my bit in putting the next one together I shall put my thinking cap on and come back with Qs about date, venue etc soon, but it may well be after Christmas now. Libby, good on you having the decs up already for Christmas. Expect mine will go up in about 10 days, just before family start descending for the big event.
Southpool, I emailed BCC to let them know the difficulties I was having registering for the Pink Ribbon Walk - I had got to the stage just before pressing the button to pay, so my user name had been accepted etc, but then I was thrown out of the booking form and back to the first page. Then when I tried putting in the accepted user name it told me someone else aleady had that name (yes, me, duh). BCC confirmed I hadn't paid when they emailed me back so now I have logged on with the first user name and created another, so I am registered on the walk site twice, albeit I have only paid once ..... this means when I look to see who is in the pink ribbon group you've set up I am there twice. I will phone them up whn I am back in the UK and sort it out, but rest assured, I am registered now, paid up and in the group!!!
Lots of love to all.
