Christy, when you log in there is a small box (save password and login detail) I think that is what it says.
It is below where you enter your password.
Click on it and a tick will appear. once this is done you should beable to just hit the log in box without going through all details again.
Hope that helps
I cannot upload a picture either. It says I should have an option in profile but I have been through every option and there isnt one to upload. Got Ian to look too in case it was my chemo brain and he said the whole thing is rubbish. I thought changes were meant to be for the good, it was so simple and user friendly before, now it is pants xxx
Welcome Bonski68 , Hope that feeling passes quickly for you.
lots of ladies on here are well into their 1st cycle and some their 2nd so you will be able to guage what are normal SE"s which will helps ease any concerns.
FEC-T #1, day 14
Another gorgeous sunny day out there. Hope you are all having a reasonable day. I'm feeling mostly ok today, though head feels a rather like a hangover without having drunk the alchohol
I'm stuck in at the moment until the district nurse has been to flush my picc line out. Penn.......hope the infection in yours soon clears up.
I now have a new look. Yesterday, my hair started coming out a lot more, so in the evening I got hold of some clippers and gave myself the 3mm convict look haircut. I am not happy wearing my wig, so think for the moment I will be brave and go out without headwear. It's probably too hot for headwear anyway.
Hope the nurse comes soon...........I want to go out!
Hi everyone...thought I'd join the in. I started chemo last Thursday (FEC-T but getting T before FEC...so right now I'm on docetaxel). I feel totally spaced out and my bones and joints are hurting (probably due to the Nulasta shot I received on Friday). I hope this 'spaced out' feeling goes away...other than that I'm doing ok.
School started up for the kiddos today (I'm US...husband is stationed and we live in teh UK)....just another reminder that they are growing up way too fast, but it does give me time to relax.
Forgot to say...... Breezy49 , my mother had her rads at coventry. I have been most impressed with treatment and care she has and continues to recieve. I couldnt ask for her to be better looked after.
Makes me feel very disappointed with my own experiences with my own local hospital post op, lets hope chemo care is better hey!!
Morning Maisies 🙂
Pennycow, really sorry to hear about infection in picc line......this blinking chemo is a mine field of problems/se"s, hope you feel much better real soon
Sounds like a mixed bag with se, some of you sounding so much better which is great news and some still having a sh..ty time 😞 love to you all xxxx
Good luck to Julie66 for tomorrow, hope your 1st dunking runs smoothly and any se are minimal.
Chrissie49, good luck to you too on 2nd dunking, hope 2nd time round is kind to you.
Good Morning Maisies,
A beautiful sunny day here. Just had pre-chemo bloods taken at surgery but have an infection in PICC line. Talked to oncology and have to go back to hospital. Rats!
Hope all ok with se's at a minimum!
Bev how did you manage to get district nurse to come and do your picc each week I have to go up to Delamere to get mine done every week?
Hair coming out in handfuls yesterday so friend shaved it off last night! Still have some but have lovely bald patches at back. Must say feel ok but then I only had it back for 12months or so!!!
I feel back to normal for the first time so am off out to enjoy myself. Hope eveyone has a lovely day in the sun.
Ju, are you dizzy and unsteady on your feet with it too? That is the worst thing, that I cant walk properly and need to hold on to something. My bowels are moving a bit too much too, so I think will ease up on fruit and veg today and give them a chance to settle.
Have a great picnic hunni
Good morning Maisies, I hope its quiet on here because everyone is up and out having fun and the same last night. My head and ears still feel odd, I will make a phone call to the unit tomorrow and see if there is anything I can do to ease it. I havent actually had any ulcers, but have managed to bite a chunk from the side of my mouth, which is now very sore. Hope you all have a great day guys xxxx
Hi Chezzap - (hope I have the right person!) Gold63 here - we were in hospital at same time for mx.
After weeks off looking at this sight I have at last decided to join you all.
Bc diagnosed June, mx in July.
Felt like I have been in a dark tunnel to be honest. After ct scan showed grey area on liver had furher tests and a 3 week wait to find out if cancer had spread. Not the best of times!
Relief when I got the news of all clear elsewhere was HUGE. HOWEVER, line to be fitted Thursday and first chemo session Friday. Been wig shopping this weekend and now feel sooo overwhelmed. Can't sleep well so consequently have cleanest kitchen floor you have ever seen!
VERY nervous for this week, just do not know what to expect as it seems we are all so diferent.
Will let you know...
When you're driven up the wall
And you want to scream and shout
Heres a little dammit doll
You cannot do without
Just grab it firmly by the legs
And find a place to slam it
And while you knock the stuffing out
Yell "dammit dammit dammit"
If dammit a not a word you say
Then twist it's little neck
And grumble out repeatedly
Oh heck oh heck oh heck x
does anyone rem the lil dollys you used to make with wool, just found this lil verse on my FB page thought it was quite apt to how we feel sometimes, the lil dolly was like a corn dolly, scarecrow kind of thing, cant work out how to change my pic or id put pic up on there xx
Bev, I am sure I have read that bloated and painful are side effects. I suffer with my stomach, IBS, indigestion the lot and I have been taking Omeprazole, given by the hospital for heartburn and touch wood, my stomach has been really good, even the IBS xx
whiterose people earlier on suggested the Naked range you can buy it in boots, ive ordered a free sample of the mouth stuff too.
im v v tired today just slept on and off for 3 hours cant sleep at night though. OH back at work tonight too
hope everyone is not having too many SEs enjoy the bank holiday xx
Does anyone hail from my neck of the woods - I live way down South - near Portsmouth. I'm also one of the older women - 59 as well. I found lump myself back in May - seems so long ago now. Had that out and also lymph nodes, but after chemo still have to have a MX as worse than they realised - that was a shock.
My steroids are called Dexamethasone and even taking them at 5 a.m. and about 11a.m. I still couldn't sleep - and I realised that on the last day I only took half the dose I was supposed to - got confused with the other meds!

Hotkatz-ingoa - another 51 year old. Steroids affect all of us in slightly different ways. I had IV steroids and then dexamethasone tablets.
