yes meant Jo43 good to hear she is back in one piece
Know what you mean re wig looking too perfect Im a tie it up and go kind of gal and this sleek and elegant perfect bob seems not me. I wore it today for meeting up for lunch at the Trafford centre then on way home in car get fed up of itching it so just whipped it off and threw it on the seat. The relief and nice breeze on my bonce was immense!!
chrissymay im a moble carer and living in sick pay although my oh works is no joke at all, my wages are cut by over half and what happens after 28 weeks.
we had a lovely lunch time at the lakes but didnt eat so no chipe stoday boo hoo maybe enxt time cos the menu did look nice lol ill certainly have gavy just to keep up with my northern type lol.
come home felt nice and relaxed and happy and had row with oh over my f....... cancer does he think it just disappears and not bother me at certain times, hes out now trying to be good fixing the fence that the dog likes to eat and keeping out of my way,
hope everyone up today is ok and coping well there seems to be an awful lot of probs with sickness atm , surely theres something out there that works !!
Gold 63 is back from chemo and she is feeling ok at the moment
Christy good they finally done scan now as you say its the bloody waiting game.
Hope everyone else good. Well just got back in from lunch out and think I have replaced the calories lost on treadmill with added interest! OOPS!!!
Cheezap – I can’t stop eating either, like morning sickness want to eat my way through it and can’t face most of the ‘good’ foods. Don’t think about ofsted, it’s not good for us! Glad you’re feeling better this time.
Breezey – sorry you’re feeling rotten. My mum used to say of all bad things ‘This too will pass’ – and it will. Must remember to say it too myself on Tues when I hit chemo ward again.
Spikeyred – good luck at hospital, poor you, as if you haven’t got enough to put up with!
Rollercoasterand Lols – I’m about the same stage as you hair-wise, horrible isn’t it? It will be a relief when it’s all gone, then we can start getting used to being bald. What freaks me most is eye-lashes – will they go too? Completely identify with ‘mind going a bit’ – I keep forgetting things like what I started to say and why I went into the next room –I fully understand the meaning of stress now and that on top of chemobrain
Christymay – good luck with vein-finding! What a gem your daughter is. I don’t know what I’d do without my two.
Thanks Samjs – I never thought I’d say this but I know I’m going to miss the buzz of teaching
GillyR- hope facebook group goes really well. I thought I might open a fb account specially, but to be honest I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the forum itself, blink and there are 10 more posts – only because you Maisies are so lovely and supportive!
PennyCrow – thinking of you, you spend lots of time doing Maisie-support, and you need some yourself!
Tasha – your tumour and regime puts my 1cm- clear lymph-nodes with some lympho-vasculer seepage into perspective. Reading so many stories like yoursand fromother Maisies makes me determined to stop feeling sorry for myself. Good luck.
Chezzap - I am amazed by your work out on the treadmill! Well done! It's all I can do to contemplate getting up, showered and dressed at the moment. That said, I did will much more lively week 3 last time so perhaps will be the same this time. I am contemplating getting on my bike when feeling more lively, or even just on the exercise bike.
Re carbs - yes, I know how you feel. I'm definitely eating more and as I am not riding to and from work every day on bike I'm putting on weight. I'll have to stop baking bread.
yes thats what I was told too that if you have travel sickness or morning sickness more likely to feel lousy.
Well Im made up with myself cos I just jogged two miles on treadmill , getting better and further each time but have gotta make sure I dont go mad as Im very competitive with myself. Just dont want to put on loads of weight during chemo cos I dont know why but am craving loads of carbs and am not even on the steroids. Yesterday I had cereal for brekkie, 2 jacket potatoes for dinner and soup and bread for tea. Im unstoppable!!!
I was told that because I did not suffer from sickness during pregnancy, that I was less likely to suffer from nausea and sickness during the chemo. Is it possible then that those who have bad se's of nausea/sickness had it bad during pregnancy?
Christy good luck with the second scan attempt
Breezy sorry to hear you feeling rotten. 33% done though you can do it
Genevre know what you mean re teaching. I dont feel that I have the confidence to go into a classroom anymore and have that commanding prescence. As I was dx when on mat leave by the time I go back will have been almost 2 years and God knows what the ofsted framework will be by then ha ha!!!
Sam, Ang and Kaz have a brill time today its great to meet up in real life. Make sure you dont get chucked out of the pub with all the raucous carrying on and make sure you order chips with gravy and get initiated ha ha!!! Although Ang likes them anyways
Jacqui hope everything goes ok with your sister she must be petrified poor thing
Spikey hope evrything goes well with the appointment and they sort it all out
Good luck to all at the bar today expecially Gold 63 as its her first. I will text her later and see how she got on
Just come back from doing Sergio's bloods YET AGAIN as the sample last week apparently clotted and they only tell me after over a week of waiting for results. Peed off beyond belief!
Morning maisies, well EC cycle 2 day2 a third of the way to the end yipee! Had a good nights sleep for my first night and feel better this time than I did last time.
Good luck to the ladies at the bar today and any will appointments and scans, ju I will be thinking of you today keep your chin up hun. Sam glad your boob is better you should be so proud raising all that money and have a nice time with our fellow maisies today, love debs x x x
Morning Maisies, day 8 # 2 EC.
Oh Ju what a horrible day for you, I'm so pleased it was good news. I know what you mean about bringing things back my sister went for a bc appt and her mammogram showed a lump too! She has to go back for core biopsy results today, I was straight back to when I had my diagnosis when she told me! Hopefully hers is benign, you couldn't make it up though could you? Have a good day girls and good luck for those at the bar today xx
Good luck to Bakedwhenstresse, Jo43 and Gold63 for their dunking today.
Ju- what a worry you have had sure it did bring it all back. Hope you have a much better day today.geneve- I am a tecaher too and it seems so strange not to be gtting ready for school starting!!
Spikeyred, that does sound like a haematoma or infection- check it out asap. Venice mine wa slarge, it was so hard it actually felt as harda s my knee to touch. Luckily ladies my boob appears to be much better now. Wasn't good having that extra op but it has sorte dit out.
Had another dream last night aboyt Oh leaving me cos chemo made me bald and put on weight- I know it's irrational but it's so awful to think such things. I had told him I am worried about these SEs especially as we are getting married next May and he says, he is marrying me the person which is lovely but still doesn't totally make me feel better about what I may look like.
On a more positive note me, Kaz and Pendragon are meeting in Milton Keynes today for coffee which is very exciting. Hopefully Jo and Rollercoaster will be able to join us next time.
Anyway must get going as I need to go and pay all that fundraising money in today.
Hi Nicola, hope you're OK. Hair falling out has made me feel panicky even though I knew it was going to happen. Had a drastic crop today ready for round 2 on Tuesday. I've had less se than you and been really lucky this time but feel am losing concentration and forgetting things all the time which makes me wonder what it'll be like when I go back to my teaching job in 6 months or so! Rang the chemo ward and nurse said feeling scared and losing confidence is normal so we must try not to worry! Take care xx
Evening maisies, 2nd chemo done no sickness so far just tired, one more done. Ju I am not surprised you were upset and stressed, thank god it was good news. Remember though we are here for you come what may and if you can't tell us your fears and worries then who can you tell. You have my mobile number and can call me anytime if you need to chat hun. You take care and get a good nights rest. Good luck to the girls at the bar tomorrow and any with appointments, big hugs to you all night night sweet dreams love debs x x x
here here Roller couldnt agree more
I found out from reading July thread how to see the posts when you reply to thread. You press the button that says view discussion as a pop up that then creates a tab at top of page so you can alternate between your reply and the posts if that makes sense
Up to the Bar tomorrow (30th August) we have Bakedwhenstresse, Jo43 and Gold63. Good luck to all of you and I hope you get some rest tonight before the big day.
Good night all and may all your side effects be small ones.
Ju, so glad you got that sorted - what a worry for you and OH! Hope you have a restful and peaceful night and feel lots better tomorrow.
welcome back from the bar Maisies, hope the se will be kind to you. Gill I think I may have a haematoma too, came home from day in London and had to change my bra as so much hair had fallen into it it was really itching, noticed my boob from the WLE is red and warm and hard, of course this was at 5.30 so everyone gone home, will ring my bcn in the morning and see what she has to say xxx
hi im back too got ther at 9 left at 3, blood machine made my test clot so had to wait over 2 hours for them to retest.
my picc line plaster is already peeling off i asked for another one she said we cant cos of risk of infection, just use micropore tape. also oncology reg gave me a months supply of my heart meds as my gp still cant get it right.
hope those up today are ok and not too many se's. have a lovely evening xxx
Annie I didnt have to take the steroids this time as I had an anti sickness with the iv chemo that lasts the whole cycle. I feel so much better this cycle. I cant remember the name of the long lasting drug but its form same family as ondanzetron and begins with P.
hi saw GP today re- query hematoma . She is nding me for an ultrasound to make sure it is a hematoma says she can feel a lump approx 3cms this is in the affected breast WLE I am panicking again now surely it cant be a reaccurrance so soon . She is saying the pinkness is not near the lump its underneath
Thanks for the advice, ladies - Jacquie it's not the sleep factor with me, it's the way the steroids make me feel! I only have the one dose to take in the morning - wonder why we all seem to have different doses/length of time on them?
Will probably persevere, though - don't want to take any unnecessary risks!
Hi girls I asked if I could miss the 2nd dose of dex but nurse said they prevent allergic reactions as well as anti sickness, she suggested taking them at 0700 and 11am which I did and I slept so much better having them that early, so maybectry that too Annie? Xx
