Thank you for your good wishes, being home and in my own bed is the best medicine I could have asked for, been asleep for about 12 hours, much needed as couldn't sleep at the hospital.
The surgery site is healed but had on going problems with a seroma, surgeon felt that I probably had a low grade tissue infection from surgery time 12 weeks ago, but because of the chemo reducing my imune system it flared up last week and got a hold, looked like cellulitus but very hot and inflamed.
Glad im not alone for stepping up to the bar at christmas but also sorry to hear that others will be joining me.
Don't know about others but hair fallen out all over the place an I mean all over the place! except for lower leg hair growing like wildfire needing to still shave, has anyone else got this bizarre problem? also was told periods would stop no such luck! the only side effects I was looking forward too.
Glad to see others are having a easier time, gives me hope for my next one, they say we are all different that seems right for sure.
Have a good weekend all Sue
Hi ladies, well first dunking went well. Went home and sofa surfed for most of the day apart from whe OH took me B and Q power tool shopping! Then we nipped in to m and s for lovely food. Managed to eat normally all day without being sick. Only SEs so far is a slight hangover feeling with a wuzzy head.
Been awake since 3.30 this morning but feel 100% like me, long may it stay this way. Xx
well what a week, got a phone call monday pm from gp to say I had infection in my mx site, they knew this because following my visit to a&e the previous week, they had taken a sample that had come back positive, went to gp for antibiotics, presented myself for chemo on tuesday and the oncologist decided to delay for a week, and sent me to see my breast surgeon, was then admited to hospital for IV antibiotics, have just been released today with oral antibiotics, they would not use the new portacath I have fitted, so have given me IV through my poor veins in my arm, which is now swollen and painful. so hoping to get better over the weekend ready for tuesday. Quite disappointed as the delay means I will be up for chemo on the 24th Dec.
Feeling happy to be home though.
Best wishes to you all sue
Good luck Samjs, Hawkie, the Batman, HEgv123, Beam67 and Icle_V for tomorrow, will be thinking of you. Also anyone with appointments tomorrow. Its been a busy week at the bar for many Stars - hope all your se's are minimal xx
Welcome back Julo,
Glad everything went ok for you today. I think we all thought the first time was going to be worse than it was. its more the anticcipation than anything I believe. Anyway, I'm sure you've already been advised, plenty of rest, lots & lots of water and take your medication even if you dont think you need it, Always better to prevent that sicky feeling rather than trying to get rid of it. Hope you dont suffer too many nasty se's. Keep us posted of your progress.
Almost forgot, have you sent Facebook request at all? we have a couple outstanding but will only ok you if we know who you are. If you have send a PM to any of us on here and we can get you sorted over there on the darkside!!
