It was someone who said about the sleep spray, I use lavendar essence oil which I rub on the edge of pillow when I need it, it works but it is strong!!
Woo hoo nearly home time, mind you I hope you have a big brolley it is absolutely persisting out there, just as I start my annual leave 😞 hey ho I will just have to find indoor things to do for now
Glad your surgery went well. My second op (margin shave) was at 4.45 too. It's a long time to wait. How annoying about your phone, but hope you were feeling sleepy anyway. Not being sick is a big bonus. I'm day three chemo and not had any nausea at all which I am very happy about. Need some prunes, but enough about that
Hope you have a good post op day and that pain meds keep you comfortable. Just take it easy.
Great to hear from you and that you are the other side of surgery now. Are you coming out today?
Make sure you rest now, onwards and upwards
Sending you a very gentle hug
I couldn't imagine coping with a bunch of 5 year olds. Looking after myself is enough!
Michele, hope you had a sleep, or does the F1 need to go into hiding?
I've got the answer for that Michele and Rhona, spend a day in school with 5 year olds, add to the mix some outside games and one of the children choosing you to chase them round the circle (well hobble round holding post-op boob!) and then throw in a Staff Meeting for good luck=exhaustion! xx
Michele, I could have obliged with the mallet as I was also awake at that time. What night sedation have you taken that works? I've taken Zolpidem and it knocked me out. Here's hoping Promethazone works for you or the F1 better go into hiding. I've just taken my second dose of dexamethasone of the day, so hope I am not in the wide awake club tonight xxx
Rhona I was begging for that mallett at 4.30 this am!!!! I'm going to have a serious fight with the F1 tomorrow morning if I don't sleep tonight. I dozed from 5am to 8am, woke at 4 am the day before. She's obsessed with zolpidem even though I've told her it doesn't work for me, she's now prescribed promethazine!!!! I will try it tonight and if it doesnt work I will hunt her down and knock her out with that bloody mallett
Ali good to hear about your results
Whytefawn, thinking of you today, waiting is definitely horrible, but I hope for the best results for you
Michele, hope that mallet wasn't needed.
It's a shame your appointment is so late, at least mine was in the morning (although my consultant was running 40 mins late, the waiting was unbearable) You probably won't be able to concentrate at work, but maybe better than sitting at home?
Like you, I have never felt so terrified and I was convinced the CT scan (and the bone scan when I had it. Fortunately I already knew before yesterday that was ok) would show something up as I felt I'd got pains everywhere. Funnily though, I don't feel too bad today, just think I was over thinking everything, which is normal.
Hope you manage to get some sleep tonight xxx
Hi Cassie, I understand how you're feeling this evening, I was exactly the same yesterday. Thinking of you and really hoping and praying that you receive the same good news as Sue and me. What time is your appointment tomorrow? Sending you a big hug xxx
Sue, if I don't sleep well tonight, I reckon I will tomorrow! A day with 5 year olds plus a Staff Meeting should do the trick! xx
Sue, I'm so glad I swopped working today for tomorrow because I didn't sleep well last night so woke up feeling tired and I felt a bit teary this morning. I think it was a mixture of relief that the scans were clear and remembering the bc nurse correcting me when I said I'd got breast cancer to no, you had breast cancer. Even now as I type this I could quite easily cry again! I'm so pleased that you're fine too and you didn't have to wait any longer for results xxx
