No Jill, I really haven't. I can't provocate the goat so bluntly. The shrink is trying to figure out why i/ am so violently averse to any "violation of bodily envelope", but so far drew blanks. I admire you ladies for not taking it too badly, I mean, owning it, touching, looking etc.
Sheena, do you take it before or after?
Sheena, lol for the pun 🙂
NO, of course I haven't touched it. Squeamishness oblige.
Imma off to bed, my session tomorrow is at 8.30am O_O May be only a short hop from here to White City, but still, aargh 😞
Sleep well ladies, mucho love xxx
PS with most of the 8Bs done with surgery, maybe we should move the social thread to some other board? Or we can stay here as well, dunno. Nite 🙂
Mael, paracetamol ed totally, way to go for me, pink and Blue are not my favourite colours these days
Jill, dinted tit,,,,, ditto or should I say titto lol
June, get you flashing in the vest top
Dunno Jill, I suspect that some degree of dented-ness is unavoidable. I am sure that our precious's will look better with some time to reshape and readjust.
June, hiya dear 🙂
Jill, LOL -- now I can't get rid of this image of some Crudelia stepping in stilettos over a soft, innocent, appetizing chicken breast 😄
(my own boob remains unseen -- by me, but the other day I've touched it by mistake and I'd rather define it as "soft toy mended by a little girl with good intentions and ADHD")
havent been on here for a day or so, had a few password problems bun ok now and i went out to friends barbie yesterday, as weather was so gorgeous wasnt it, consumed fair bit of rose but mostly spiritzers, lol.
Yes Mael it is a bit of a breeze isnt it, i had 20 sessions not quite as many as you and i didnt have any problems with any of them,
Yesterday i was wearing s vest top and my friends and two of them were ones with me during my treatment, said my boobs were definitely bigger, but rads can possibly shrink them, ive heard, could it be the Tamoxifen. has anyone else had similar, Im a 32 c im not sure i want to be 32 d,
All good dear, and you? Duly paracetamoled? x
Haha thank my lovely x still feeling okay? X
Oooo nice the Agila, so feminine and cute! A toast to your new car Sheena! x
Mael, I was so sad to give my car up but it was beginning to cost me more money than it was worth! I got a vauxhall agila, it will do, price was right and mileage low
can't believe you have to sit in a gown! I sit in large waiting room then get called through into the machine room whip my top and bra off and hop on the bed
No Jill you don't have to sit in a gown in the waiting room, you get called through to a cubicle where you change and can leave your things, you lock it so it's safe then they take you out the door at the back around to the machine, it's quick simple and painless and I was normally in and about within 10 mins! You don't feel a thing xx
Oh and I was told by the staff in rads that I should take a couple of paracetamol beforehand if I hurt afterwards. So I did that this morning and just about to top up now, it's made a difference for me. I know everyone is different and I get to be a drama queen rads, pink and Blue tit looks dreadful lol x
Afternoon lovely ladies x
well number 3 over with this morning
I haven't been posting due to stress levels rocketing sky high, not due to rads, but my car! On way home on Thursday my dear old clio gave up the ghost in traffic jam, I simply sat there and cried, my son hopped out to start pushing it and a very kind LADY! Yes, not any of the men driving past. Chivalry and all that stuff obviously doesn't exist around here
Any hoo, newish car has been purchased today, bought in a rush but the man was very good and didn't try to pull the wool over a poor simple woman haha
hopefully you're all doing fine and had a great weekend
ps missed y'all x
The goat has been surprisingly tame. The whole process feels like a positive thing, the machine is not oppressive at all, it's just a large disc that hovers in your proximity, even less claustrophobic than the famed donut mentioned days ago. I just had a second of panic the first time it was switched on, as I could feel a sudden, strange heat that reminded me how invasive the thing is, despite the lack of visible signs, and I thought "there we go, I am being microwaved". It went away as swiftly as it came - really an instant - and I didn't feel anything for the rest of the treatment.
The other annoying thing is staying so still for so long. At the end my limbs were all numb. I found it helpful to remove my contacts and to keep my hands in a tight fist. They draw lines on you which is very ticklish; it's better to remove them as soon as it's over, as I've found they are more amenable when they're still fresh, and you don't have to scrub as much.
But, overall, it's a breeze, nowhere near as disheartening as a standard oncology appointment. Everyone is very nice and very chilled, emanating no angst or stress. I promise, you'll be fine!
Still 11 days to go for you, Jill, if I remember correctly... ?
Jill, I may have forgotten to mention that if I don't work I don't get paid... 😄 Not that I need that money right now, but it's reassuring to still have an income.
Anyway, I called off sick today. I have a problem with the keyboard and may take my laptop to a walk-in repair centre. Or I may slob unashamedly till it's time to go for the therapy...
My desire to go to work tomorrow is basically nil. Must have been all that swimming...
Great Dee, keep us posted about your activities with the Marsden!
Thank you Jill, I should move my a*** from this thread from time to time; it reflects my attitude at parties in real life, where I usually appropriate a corner and do the honours like I were the Queen of the North West Corner, The One Near The Drinks Cabinet. Prosecco for everyone girls! (actually, let me introduce you to the Continental joys of the Spritz -- buy a bottle of Aperol alongside the next prosecco one, and throw some lemonade in as well).
I am going to have a bath; I am getting anxious towards going to rads tomorrow straight after work. I'll know that no matter what I'll do, I'll stink. I have a box of baby wipes (don't laugh, I use them on the laptop), I'll ask if I can use them beforehand on my gorilla armpits. Pitrok is basically for the lulz.
I wonder how Sheena is doing... ? x (and the others as well!)
Oh shush, that doesn't seem too great -- especially the incontinent dog. Hope they stayed firmly put outside or at least outside any carpeted area? And didn't teach yours to be naughty...
Hehehe, Jill, because I have more energies than brain basically 😄 I had this swimming pool pass expiring soon, and since it's expensive, I've taken care to get bang for my buck. It's not chlorinated so I might possibly go back soon, but I don't know if I'll feel like it.
How was your weekend?
Jill, how are you? Geoff'd better come and pick me (up the floor: I swam all day yesterday and today I am barely alive). x
Indeed June, this sounds brilliant!
