"Where ever you be, let your wind blow free, for want of a fart was the death of me!"
Something my Dad used to say to me when I was little.
PP, this is your opportunity to get your own back on the male digestive tracts they may have tormented you for years... and without any guilt!
oh my goodness....
None of the stuff I have been given to read mentions this as a SE.
I am having my first chemo on Wednesday and just told OH about this thread. He said its okay, you can stay in the conservatory and we can close you off!
Anybody windy on Herceptin?
Time for another bump!
Better out than in, as my Gran used to say!
"Tax trots" are a common side-effect. Caution, as wind might not be JUST wind... (Eeeew!!!)
There she blows ..............!!
..and there was me trying to control things!!
On a serious note my GP prescribed APERCAP peppermint gastro tablets usually for irritable bowel and although they don't stop the wind it does seem to collect it so "The Force" is with me and I don't get the gripes like I did with the first TAX !!
BUMP - this might give people a bit of a giggle.
hi i first read this thread nov 12th 2010 it really cheered me up i have just read and enjoyed it all over again so funny missmessy x
I found this thread again and thought it is very funny. For those of you who need a laugh on down days have a read
how funny this subject is,when the bbc do the weather report and say its going to be windy, thats me really it even reached the daily papers thats how bad it is. does not bother me any more quite enjoy it really, think i need locking up. finished chemo in oct 2010 and starting radio 17th jan yuck
take care yvonne xx
OMG!!!!! I have been crying with laughing so much I had to stop reading them for a hour or so to give my self a rest as I am just post op!!!! I have had the most horrendous wind and my chemo has not even started yet, I can see this might be the excuse my hubby needs to get me to the divorce courts, saying I am trying to kill him by gassing him LOL
lol - I suffer more so when I take the lactulose for my horrendous constipation.....I live with 4 males so I'm normally on the receiving end........pay back time! lol
Love this thread. I'm still getting the blame for any household noxious niffs 8 months after chemo. It wasn't me!! Honest. :)x
Hilarious thread, Live alone and Happly giving the Horses in the Stable Yard below a run for there money in the farting stakes, I dont think its mentioned in the chemo blurb. Almost dread visitors when on form!!
Stories made me Laugh out Loud, much needed, Thanks so much Ladies x
Time for a bump...?!
Am soooooo happy i found this thread!!! my family are all thinking of moving out, now i can confirm i am not just a Mrs smelly pants and can blame the chemo
also thanks for the giggle..just what i needed today
After starting Taxotere I swear that the hole in the ozone layer got bigger outside our bedroom window. In one week I have reeked revenge on my husband for the years of abuse by wind that I have suffered. I have also started burping very loudly without any warning. I was mortified in Tesco and will have to change shops! BBB.
Bump! Trump! Happy days 😛
Well done lisha - about time someone bumped this thread again.
Laughter is a great medicine, so they say... unfortunately it doesn't help with holding in the noxious whiffs!
This has made me laugh and why does it not surprise me to see Lucky Lil on here.
I went out with a friend (at least she was yesterday) to a very turgid play and added personally to the atmosphere with disgusting smells floating along the aisles. I have not admitted so hopefully someone else got the blame or thought it was part of the production. Chemo does produce the farts to end all farts.
OMG i am so glad this thread has turned up... My farts are better than anyone in my house!! The kids are now oh mam is that you ohh mam and sometimes just now and again it's not me and I get the blame lol. But god sometimes they are so long and very smelly it smells like something had died. So glad to hear it passes when chemo finishes.....
Sorry girls its grotbags .Think some of our new ladies need a laugh so just bumping (or trumping this up).The dorm one made me cry !!!
Love this thread its great .
I have to say im a real grotbags (sorry) i used to fart for england.Especially at work ,the girls in the tearoom used too run so i didnt rumble on their legs .Also at home no one was safe even the cats used to walk away.
We even went on hol to the lake district once and i farted in the shower and asked my hubby how good it was when he replied not that good you left the door ajar and they are just welcoming someone in outside our room!!!!!!whoops .
But i have to say im absolutely gutted that the chemo farts have not turned up !!My OH on the other hand is completely thrilled !
Keep on trumping girls theres some real corkers on here. The dorm one is just great .
Im so bad, Im practising playing the National Anthem......its the Mozambican one which is HORRIBLE. Think my version is actually an improvement Hehehe
Ha ha talking about dogs, I have brought mine upstairs just incase I might need someone to blame lol x x x
Moi? Actually SGL, I'll just do what I usually do and blame the dog... 😉
haha that would be JANE!!!! lolxxx
OK, which one of you girls bumped this? x
its ok, ive got the labrador!!!! he will take the blame!! xx
Don't laugh too hard or it might cause an internal explosion!
thanks for finding this for me Jane,tooooooo kind lolxxx
It's definitely time to bump this thread again!!! 🙂
There was a time on EC when I could totally get my own back on my OH, whose bottom burps smell like dead rats, I had a very smug face at him dealing with my chemo wind.
I also got burps as well - really really loud, long and comedic burps.
ST - "small alien" and blue too, made my day laughing at that!!
Thanks and sympathy winging your way from me.
Hope your future holds few/no more small aliens.
hi all would like to join the gang.the smeel and noise is really something else.blotted tummy.the constipation is something else.but with the help of lac+sen it gets better,had a good laugh.try to drink plenty but have just got to put up with it have to cats woke both up today!!!!!!!.so good to know there are more windy ladies out there.thank u so much for the laugh ladies.
ps hurricane katia on it`s way so might have a excuse!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wondered why no-one comes into the sitting room any more......................AND i thought I was being so subtle, but then my sense of smell ain't what it was!!
I found it quite comforting to read this thread and realise that I am not the only one suffering from not only wind but also constipation and the trots. My worst experience (so far) was a week after my SNB - I hadn't been to the loo for about 4 days and when I finally got the urge it was the middle of the night. I sat and sat for what felt like hours trying to move what felt like a small alien. I've had three children, the last child I had was without pain relief and the pain I felt as I gave birth to the small alien was intense. And I blocked the toilet - and it was bright blue!! Thankfully it didn't run around the bathroom screaming and was soon sent to where it belonged.
If I take medication to stop the trots I get constipated, and vice verca. So, I watch what I eat, drink lots of water and so far everything since the birth of the blue alien has been tolerable.
I think a sense of humour is essential - pity you cant get that on prescription!
Oh my god! I start 6xFEC soon and I have IBS at the best of times!
Sorry ladies but I'm having to pre-warn OH for my future actions by reading him some of the posts - don't worry I haven't revealed any names!
Has anyone been divorced for chemo-farts yet - I may be the first?
oh my word, what a fantastic thread. I've just spent the last hour reading through all 21 pages of this thread & it's hilarious. I have been laughing out loud , so so funny. Thank u so much for the laugh ladies 🙂
Had a surprised windy moment this afternoon. Opened my mouth to talk and let out a massive burp. Sorry, ladies!
Post FEC6 bottom has struck again, I parped my way round TK Maxx with trishk today and when I said "sorry" she knew exactly what she was in for.
My daughter yelled down the stairs this evening that she could smell me from her bedroom, and I was in the living room! Sad thing is, she's completely right. Definite need for open windows tonight...
I too have noticed that on tax.
I horrified a teenager last night. Didn't take much effort either ;o)
I didn't suffer from abnormal windiness until I started Tax. Then, after about a week, for a few days my whole house seemed to smell like a fetid swamp!
Most unusual se effect reason I given for not going into work yet!
