All sorted, last treatment in the bag! Happy Days ☀️
Meesh I’m working on the assumption of you can make it to hospital from Lowestoft then I shld be able to from Spixworth....it’s just the bridge that goes over the new NDR road that’s causing problems...OH wants me to cancel but I just want to get them over with and have already missed 2!
Beer delivery came Shi but still no wine & spirits 😱😱
Least the heating and hot water is back on....still feels cold as takes so long for this place to warm up!!
Keep safe everyone
Ladies who are having their rads today keep safe xxx
Well that’s number 4 of booster done! One left tomorrow morning - hopefully the weather won’t get any worse. I’ve been using Flamigel which is apparently a new gel which came out late last year. So far I’ve not been too bad, pink and only a small amount of itchiness (thankfully) - think the weather has gone in my favour as lots of working from home and no bra wearing (zero risk of poking peoples eyes out with a wayward bap) 😂
No 13 for me today can't believe how quickly it has gone - 2 more and then 4 boost. will be setting off shortly for ONC review and then today's treatment hope the roads aren't too bad.
Have a good day everyone and stay warm xx
Morning ladies ❄️❄️
No rads again for me today as they cancelled....quite pleased as like Meesh says it’s the wind causing snow drifts that’s the problem...think the main roads are clear it’s just getting to them that’s the problem! My friend who lives near hospital says the road going into it is chaos 😱
we need to hope that our beer delivery makes it today or we will be a pub with no beer! Yesterday afternoon was manic....it was like Christmas....loads of villagers that don’t usually use the pub decided they needed a drink! Mustn’t complain tho!
Is anyone using Aloe Vera gel? I tried it for first time yesterday but boob got quite red and hot...not sure if it was because if that or just what rads is doing??
Morning ladies! How are we this cold snowy morning? No more snow here overnight but the news says that the n&n have cancelled all ops today so I'm not hopeful for my appt 😕 I'm going to wait til a bit later to call and check as they may change their mind during the day😊 We have winter tyres on our car (had them for a few years) they are really good.
Shi, travel safely I hope anyone managing to get to and from rads does so safely today!
Dont think our kitchen fitter will make it again today as apparently snow drifts are the problem now, it's quite windy here today 🙄
Congratulations Alibobs for completing your last session. Hope you don't have any set backs and you keep well.
Alibobs, hoorah for you! Last one yeah 🛎🛎🛎🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🛎🛎🎈🎈🎈🔔🔔🔔🔔🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻
Well done ladies who managed to battle the snow and get in for their appts. I really hope they don't cancel mine tomorrow I really want to be done with these hospital visits.
Brumman i hope you get your appt soon.
Yay well done you for completing and actually managing to get there xxx
Remember to keep up your regime of fluid and moisturing for the next couple of weeks xxx
Well done Alibobs 🥂🎉💐! Fingers crossed the skin stays calm, the fatigue remains at bay and your recovery is a short one 🤞🏻
Brumann - fingers crossed for you.
Yay Alibobs! How are you feeling? I would be interested to know if the post rad fatigue hits you. During this treatment, I'm working only mornings and already work is looking hectic with lots of meetings etc during the few weeks following the end of my radiotherapy...:/
Number 13 done...just 2 more regular rads and then the 5 boosts to go. Interesting to see how other hospitals do things differently.
Stay safe and warm everyone!
Hope everything goes ok Brumann, hopefully they will get you in quite soon xx
Congratulations Alibobs on the last one 🛎🛎🎉🎉🎈🎈
Main road re-opened and the weather calmed down so I took a chance and made my way 😎😎. I managed to get through I just took my time and didn't let anyone rush me. Now home after being out for nearly 4hrs, time for a nap I think.
Hope everyone else is OK x
Spoke to BCN and they need/want to see me. Booking me in for a rapid appt as doctor will be available and ultrasound equipment will be there in case they need to use. Could be a week to 10 days for appt. 😞
hope everyone made there appointments safely today.
Well done Alibobs 🛎😊😊🛎😊😊
just had call from hospital and they cancelling tomorrows appointment too 😱 quite pleased they let me know now as it would be same panic again in the morning!! Just a bummer that it will be 2 I’ve missed that need rescheduling!!
The suns come out but I think when temp drops it’s gonna be a nightmare again 😱❄️❄️❄️
Morning ladies...made an attempt to go to appoint this morning but got as far as Morrison’s which is about 1.5 miles away and turned round and came back...people messaging me saying ring road was at a stand still! Appointment cancelled and gotta ring in morning about 830 am appointment but that’s not looking hopeful at the minute....I’m not sure I’ve seen snow this bad for years!!
keep warm and safe everyone ❄️❄️❄️
Enjoy your ☕️ And 🍰 Both of you. I am not going to attempt to get to my appointment, everyone saying that the roads are bad. I have cleared the car earlier but there is about an inch on it again now ❄️❄️ Will have to get my 🎿 out tomorrow. Stay safe everyone xx
Well both me and Karen are having unexpected ☕️ and 🍰Stops as the hospital has cancelled all today's appts. I've got to call in the morning tomorrow to check if it's still on tomorrow. I'm glad to not need to go out in this snowy weather but it pushes my last appt into the next week 😔
May be having a day off today as A1 is shut for quite a stretch past my village. Phoned hospital and they said to re-assess nearer to appointment time and let them know. If I am late they will still treat me. My appointment is 12.50 so may have to try and leave at 11.30 to get there on time. It's only 12 miles to hospital but road was closed yesterday due to accident and had to go long way round cross country and there wasn't as much snow yesterday. Its still snowing here and flakes are getting bigger so I think I may be staying home. Stay safe everyone xx
We'll definitely be needing a reindeer and sledge here! I'm hoping that the main roads will be clear by the time I go today. We don't live too far from a main road so hopefully I'll be ok. I'm a bit worried about my appts for tomorrow and Friday as although they've brought them forward they're still 5pm and 4:45pm and with the delay I had yesterday it'll probably mean driving back in the dark when it starts getting icy 😕
Hope me everyone gets to and from rads safely today!
Brumman, sorry to hear you're experiencing a few problems hopefully it's nothing but do let us know how you get on, we'll worry otherwise!
Shi, great tune this morning!
2 weeks post rads and all was going well until tonight. Tiny hard lump has appeared just to the left of my scar, as if something is trying to come out. Also having trouble lifting arm. So I guess a call to my BCN tomorrow.
Anyone got any thoughts
Thanks Shi, no bell where I go for treatment but fear not I will be 💃💃💃 out of that door on Friday
I've not had planning fir my boosters next week and I don't think they're doing it as it's not on my appointment schedule. Wonder why that's different? Just another example of different hospitals doing different things!
I had No 12 today! We're getting through them ladies, wahoo.
Karen, you must be half way through today?
Shi, you're nearly halfway through too. Gosh it's gone quick.
Not had a planning app for boost but they did check the markers in one of my RT sessions last week. My boosters start next week.
I did when I had mine,I think it is because it is a more specific area that they are applying the boosters to
Has anyone has had a planning appointment in preparation for the boost radiotherapy? Had mine today and I have to say it was interesting...very different from the one I had for the general radiotherapy.
Just 3 left to go now, still have a smurf boob and tamoxifen to conquer! Let’s hope the snow doesn’t get in the way too much for us all for the rest of the week. Saw Onc yesterday and they want to see me next in May. Feels a bit scary being let out in to the big wide world again with RT effects potentially at their worst 😳
