Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Number 8 for me tomorrow and I am definitely beginning to feel the effects. My boob is very warm and pink but not sore. I have had quite a lot of aches and pains over the last 24 hours too!! Boo!! Not done much today. Just the Sunday roast and a trip to Matalan!! Annoyed with myself for not getting my sorry backside in gear and going for a much needed walk!! Will do tomorrow morning before rads!! Hope everyone is Ok! Xx

Beginning to dread Rads tomorrow as boob is already feeling  the effects and I'm only 5 down ☹️ I keep getting the odd pain in it and I think it's already swollen, the nipple feels like it's been chaffed. Part of my underarm also feels chaffed too, decided to wear my long sleeved t shirt inside out today to see if that helped. I need to get those Wonder Woman knickers out again I think!

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Shi, I wondered how you kept it in place. I tucked one end of my scarf down the armpit of my jumper to cover that and then placed the rest of it over my boob. I thought about sewing some ties on so I could make a silk boob sling, using safety pins makes much more sense, I'm such a wally πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Hi the aloe Vera seems to be working as the pink has gone down a bit! I felt a few pains and twinges during the night though. Been to the gym this morning so feeling good at the moment!! I've had my Smurf boob for 4 months now!! Slightly faded but still There!! Wish it would go.!! Curry in slow cooker! Out for drinks tonight! Happy weekend!!

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Karana, meesh, I got strip of silk off the market for Β£2 and cut a square out to fit boobie and then used a couple of safety pins to attach the silk on the inside of the vest at the top and it’s working fine 😁😁put the main bit of the pin on the outside of the vest if that makes sense. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨shi xx

It wont do any harm to do them, I must admit on the days that I didnt do them I knew about it, I was not able to do them 3 times a day as they suggest but certainly did them before I went to work and also before bed. The one that helped me the most whilst I was going through rads was the one where you are "climbing up the wall" with your hands

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Thanks Helena, no I'm not doing post op exercises as I have been doing daily yoga since starting chemo. Although I must admit it hasn't been daily this week as I've been starting work early and then what with travelling to rads I don't seem to find time. I'll have to start doing them I think when I can't do yoga.

 

I sleep on my left and op was on the right, I've ordered a v pillow to see if that will help provide some support, it should arrive Tuesday so might try another pillow until then which is what I did after op.

 

Karen, I have a silk scarf so will probably try that folded up.

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Meesh

 

Are you still doing your exercise from post op as I was told to do them throughout my rads as they help with the shoulder mobility?

 

As I sleep on my right side, op side, I used to tuck the duvet under that side when it was uncomfortable.

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Might have to try the silk square trick...where do I get one of those from?

Love this tune 😊😊

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Karen, my shoulder also feels a bit achey. My boob feels a bit strange, sort of achey too. It kept me awake a bit last night trying to find a comfortable position.

 

Shi, do you think silk would stay n place without a bra to hold it in place? Guess I'll just have to try it.

 

I'm moisturising with e45 morning and before bed with aloe Vera or moogoo after rads treatment. Did try doing an extra one yesterday at lunchtime but I was at work and it was really difficult so I probably won't do that again unless I really need to.

 

what are people doing today?

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Hi Karana, try a square of silk over your boob under the vest, it was a Mrs meow tip of jan rads thread, I know I’m a day behind you but so far so good, I cream after rads, then again about 2-3, then before bed. Roma same here one gown to keep all 😎😎and we can wash it ourselves. Having a flower power moment with sonny & cher on jukebox - I got you babe πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ•ΊπŸ’•πŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨shi xx

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Morning ladies....I’ve been moisurising in the morning then when I get home after rads and then again before bed...just using MooGoo at minute! Was a bit uncomfortable last night while sitting downstairs in the bar...had on one of my post op bras but it felt so tight...think I’m going to have to rethink what to wear!! Boob feels quite heavy this morning and shoulder achy! Had a couple of hot sweats in night...not sure if that’s the Tamoxifen or the couple of glasses of wine I had 😱

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

I get a clean gown each time too, although they did say I could take my dressing gown. I might do that next week to help nhs and the environment!

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Spider woman! Hope your smurf boob goes soon so you can resume your career as a pole dancerπŸ˜‚ I'm using e45 too and aloe Vera and moogooπŸ˜‚

Smurf boob can take a couple of months to go.

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Alibobs, how are you getting on with the Aloe Vera?  I don't get a clean gown each time was given one at CT planning scan and told to keep it and leave it when treatment finished.  Trust cutbacks - patients to do their own washing, cheek of it! Have a good weekend everyone xx

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

That made me laugh Shi!! Yes hoping the pink subsides too but still there tonight so just slathered on some aloe Vera before bed! Speaking of Smurf boob I wonder how long we are blessed with That? Just to add I get free parking too at my hospital. We just show the car park man our appointments list and he raises the barrier for us! I do think they could save on Laundry money though as they give us a clean gown every treatment. No sooner have you got it on it has to he taken off again and binned! Maybe paper ones would be more cost effective! Have a good weekend everyone!

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

I'm E45ing twice a day at the minute, in the morning post deodorant to avoid pit pong and then just before bedtime - it's worked so far. Week 4 is super boost to smurf boob! Hoping they zap the blue out as its killing my pole dancing career! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

Just airing boob and I've noticed that it's a little swollen. They did say that might happen, I wonder if that's why scar on nipple is sensitive.πŸ˜•

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

To those who said they were doing a 20 second hold....that MUST seem like a really long time and feel quite tense. I've just tried it here and I can do it, of course, but its knowing that you CAN'T do it during RT that must seem a bit ...ekkkk. Anyway, you are all doing it just fine, so well done.

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Morning ladies, day 5 for me today. Boob feels a bit odd today. Not sore or painful as such just feels a bit heavy and tight. At least I have the weekend for it to recover a bit. We don’t pay for parking here either. I got a slip from the onc which I took to patient liaison and they give you 3 months free parking at at all the hospitals in the area which is good as I use 3 different ones for my appointments. Hope you all have a good day and get in and out of the Rads quickly xx

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Morning Ladies 😎😎😎

 

I don't  pay pay for parking at my trust either just have to get ticket validated by receptionist.  Day 4 today but then 2 days off.  Monday busy day with ultrasound and then rads so will prob be hangry by the time I get rads.  Good luck everyone today xx

Re: February 2018 Radiotherapy

Morning ladies....think it maybe different in each hospital re parking...we don’t have to pay if having treatment...just get our tickets stamped at reception!  Yesterday I sat next to a lady waiting to go in and she said to me β€˜look at us rocking the same haircut’ made me πŸ˜‚ 

 

Good luck today 😎😎😎 

 

I’m only on day 3 and getting fed up with ha I gotta to be up and out of house so early 😱😱
