Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Lovely to meet up with you all on Wednesday.  I think we timed the meet up just right, in between snow last week and heavy rain and strong winds this week.

Hoping all of you who have scans coming up soon get good results.

Hopefully we can sort out another meet up towards the end of March?  Apart from my hols I have a few birthdays and other dates (and scans etc) to work around.  Maybe if some dates can be suggested for the end of the March we can agree one with plenty of notice this time?  As I'll be away I may not be able to log on and sort this out so if someone else can put some dates up we can all say which suits us best? Meeting place can be Portsmouth or Winchester if that suits us all.

Hi ladies

As 4 of us have replied already and can all do Weds 6th Feb shall we say that is definite? 

1.30 in the Spinnaker Tower Cafe, Gunwharf, next Weds.  We will be there for at least an hour so come along later if you can't get there by 1.30.  Please can you all check this message/thread just beforehand to make sure there's been no changes.

Looking forward to catching up, it's been a while!

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
Thanks for those dates Nicky, hope you're ok at the moment.
I can do Tues 5th, Wed 6th, Mon 11th, Mon 18th, Tue 19th, Mon 25th, Tue 26th. I am still on weekly chemo on Thursdays which involves a blood test on Wednesdays most weeks. Also have MRI & a CT to look forward to in Feb!
Hopefully we can sort a day convenient for all but if another day is better for everyone please don't worry about me.
Take care of yourselves.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

Im not sure if the Southampton meet up is happening but unfortunately I can’t make any date this week due to some other commitments that have come up. Hopefully it does take place.

I’m going to suggest a few dates in Feb though to get the ball rolling with that, and meeting up again in Portsmouth as it’s easiest for most of you as you all live near there. 

I am free next week except for Monday (5-7th) and all of the following week (11-14th) plus possibly a couple of days the week after (18-20th). Maybe you can all say what day/s are best for you so we can sort a date when the majority of us can meet. I haven’t included Fridays for me as I do find the traffic too busy driving home, whatever time I leave! And there will be days in the weeks I’ve mentioned that I will become busy on, but so far haven’t committed to anything else just yet.

Anyone with secondary BC is welcome to join us it’s not restricted to Hampshire but as we all started off meeting more centrally in Winchester we called the thread what it is. We generally meet at 1.30 in the cafe at the base of the Spinnaker Tower if we are in Portsmouth but don’t have a set place if we meet up in other towns.

Lets see if we can get something organised 😊🍰

Hi ladies I can still make 12 on Monday in Southampton if Seza gets back to us. If not shall we rearrange another date? I’m leaving my hub in charge of carpet fitting at the new house on Monday. Anything could happen!!!!!

Hello everyone 

I’m sorry I’m going to pass on the meet up in Southampton on 28th as it’s not so great to get to. Hope your wobbles have eased Dragoncarine. 

I look forward to our February meet up.

love to you all

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
I could possibly come to Southampton on 28th but please can you come up with a venue & time between you all and let me know. Somewhere in the West Quays outlet would be easy for me coming from the Island. I can't say for definite if I can make it as yet though, sorry.

Hi Seza, I live in Southampton (within walking distance of General). I am free every Wednesday (except this week, daughter visiting) and would love to meet up for coffee or whatever as feeling a bit isolated snd wobbly myself.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

If there is anyone free on 28th or 31st who would like to meet up I would be grateful to make contact with someone in a similar situation and just have a chat. Feeling a little isolated and would just be great to hear there is hope talk to someone who understands. Xx

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

I was about to post on here with some suggestions of dates and then realised that there’s been plenty of activity since I last read the thread when Judy replied to seza last week.

Unfortunately I can’t do 21st or 28th either Winchester or Portsmouth. I could probably get to either on one of the other days mentioned 29, 30 or 31 but not sure at this stage which ones I would be free on as I’m still popping in on a regular basis to my Mum (my Dad died unexpectedly in October which is why I couldn’t make the last meet up)

If not I am relatively free (give or take days for treatment, visiting Mum and baby sitting my grandson!) so would hopefully be able to meet up in February.

As an update from me I’m still on fulvestrant (and Denosumab) so my treatment is pretty easy in comparison to what I have been on over the past 3-4 years, something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say again. My latest scan results were all stable although one very small lymph node had grown a millimetre or two. My liver is still NED (no evidence of disease) since my resection last April which is the best news to start the New Year with.

Hipe to catch up with you all soon but it will have to be 29th or later, or February now.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hello everyone, welcome Seza sorry you’ve found yourself on here but this little meet up group is lovely and hopefully you will find it very helpful too.  We usually meet in Gunwharf at the Spinnaker Tower cafe but I think next time it will be in Winchester. I hope you can make it it would be lovely to meet you. 

 

Hopefully the other ladies will be along shortly but these are the dates this month I’m free; Monday 21st, bit short notice though I know, then 28th, 29th, 31st January.  

 

Love to all, look forward to our catch up.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

Sorry I can't meet up next week. We are away for the weekend celebrating our eldest daughters 30th birthday - in Disneyland Paris of all places!  However she wanted it and our grandson who's now 15 months will love it! We're not back until next week and I have a few things to catch up on during the rest of the week, including babysitting, so can't make any other day.  Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and hope treatments are continuing to work well for you and side effects are minimal, especially Helen with the neuropathy SE.

I wish you all a lovely Christmas and I hope treatments are being kind to you. Hopefully we can have a day in Winchester in January.

Hi all

I’m sorry I can’t make 12th. I know everyone is very busy but on the off chance anyone is free I could do 13th or 14th. If not then I’ll see you all in the New Year.  Hope everyone is doing well and treatments running smoothly.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
Christmas is coming and I was wondering if anyone was free Wed 12th Dec for a catchup? I have a busy December and this was the only day free for me! Have been in touch with Nicky and she is unable to make December but would like to meet up in January perhaps in Winchester.
So if you would like to meet at Gunwharf 1.30pm Wed 12th Dec let us know!
I hope that you are all managing treatments and keeping ok.
Love Helen xx

Good morning ladies, I’m having to go into work this morning and don’t finish till 2pm. If I don’t make it by 2.30 then something has delayed me and I’ll have to miss meeting. I’ll be sad to miss you if this happens but next meeting I may be bringing another secondaries lady with me who is interested 😀xx

Hi ladies

Ive just returned from holiday and have been checking the dates put up by Helen. I should be able to make 10th October but will know a bit nearer the time so I’ll check in on here a bit closer to the day.

Hope everyone is doing well on their treatments and good luck for anyone getting results.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

hope you are all well. I can make 10th October for a meet up. I can’t do the 3rd as I have giant grand-puppy staying then for a couple of days and I don’t want to leave him in case he eats the house 🏠🐶

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone, hope you're all ok & coping with treatments.
Just returned from holiday this afternoon & realised that I can't make 26th (tomorrow) for a catchup, sorry. How about either Wed 3rd or 10th Oct?
Let's sort something out.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

I hope you have all been able to enjoy our long, and sometimes very hot, summer. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lonely DC, it is a lonely old world out there for us secondary ladies. As to dates I can’t do 26th as we are away but can do the other dates. If most of you can do 26th please go for that rather than wait for all of us to agree on another date later on?

Good luck to everyone waiting for scan results (Helen and Judy), I’m also having a scan in a weeks time and then getting the results once I get back from holiday, I’m sure they will be available just before we go but I’d rather wait until after!

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
Hope you're all coping with your treatments and have been able to enjoy the summer.
I think we must be due a catchup sometime soon so I don't know if anyone has some dates free? Remember that Carine said she wasn't working Wednesdays from September so anyone free Wednesday 5th, 12th, 26th Sep , 3rd, 10th Oct for cuppa and cake?
Take care, Helen xx
