Karana and Shi good luck for tomorrow’s last bap zap, Club Tropicana awaits 🏖🌴🍸🎉
Woo hoo last one tomorrow, sending you loads of hugs xxx
Spiderwoman, the last tunes they played during my treatment were billie jean by Michael Jackson and the very last one was I feel good by James Brown so I 💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃My way out singing "I feel good, da da da da da...."
Hooray! Meesh welcome officially to the end of treatment club, hope you danced all the way out of the door! Nice Work ✅✅✅ # Treatment Complete....🤫🤫🤫Sh what’s that I hear....The 🛎 ringing 😂 Next stop.... Club Tropicana ✈️⛱🌴🥂
Hello ladies! 🎉🎊🎉🎊🎊💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🛎🛎🛎🛎🛎last one done for me, hoorah! Great tunes ladies! Shi, did you think everyone had done a moonlight flit on you? 🤣😂🤣😂
Not sure what I'm going to do with the extra 2-3 hours of my day! No excuse for not losing weight now though 😕
Thanks for posting the link Helena! Hip Hip Hooray to those finishing today - well done!! 🛎🛎🛎🛎🛎🎉🎉🎈It’s a great feeling
Well done, just think no more rads for you 🙂 🙂
Yay!! Last boost done!!
Spiderwoman thanks for the secret link to Club Tropicana 🍹🍹🏖🏖 🏝🏝I had a quick look yesterday but couldn't find it. I've been so used to being in the "going through treatment" section I didn't think to look in "moving forward" 😂
Roma, hoorah for you 🎉🎊🎊🎊🛎🛎🛎🛎🎊🎊🎉🎉🎉🎉💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃💃last one, yeah!
Shi, I was told the clips were there so they knew where to treat for radiotherapy boosters.
I'm a bit disappointed with rads as I thought it'd get rid of the last few armpit hairs that chemo didn't get rid of along my snb scar but alas no the little blighters are still there 😫
There you go, this is the link 🙂 🙂 xx
Hello for those of you who want to chat post treatment, Club Tropicana 🌴⛱🌴is found under moving forward after breast cancer/recovering from treatment/Club Tropicana. Not sure how to paste a proper link despite working in IT doh 😩
Hi, Meesh it been a week since my treatments finished. Was told to expect side effects after days 7-10 from first batch of RT ended and then to expect a further reaction where I had my boosters 7-10 days after that had finished. So may see more se,s this weekend from the booster site (nipple and side of breast) but so far so good 👍🤞🏻
Review was very similar to other one like you expected Meesh....they’ve made me a follow up appoint in June 😱
Glad it’s the weekend....my boob needs the break from the electric beach!!
Hope you all get on well with your appoints
Morning everyone, hope you are all OK. Last one for me today, yippee!! ✅✅✅✅. Feeling OK, scar a bit sore and a bit pink but manageable. I also seem to have what looks like a bit if heat rash so hopefully it will calm down in the next few days.
Hope everyone gets on well in rads today xx
Morning ladies! No 19 for me today and also my completion review. I'm not expecting much as my other reviews have not been very useful and she didn't even want to look at my boob. My boob is also looking slightly tanned, although I have a pink bit up nearer my collarbone which is itchy. I've also developed some spots on the cleavage side which I think must be from the moisturising and hot flushes I'm having. Karen, I also have the metal clips which I didn't know anything about either. It's weird because I asked the surgeon if he'd be removing the initial biopsy clip and he said he was but didn't mention bunging more in there 🙄
Gosh I'm nearly there! Have a good day ladies!
Spiderwoman how far post treatment are you?
Morning ladies No 16 for me today which means first of the boosters....they did explain yesterday what would be different and pointed out the different machine that’s used...they also mentioned that I have tiny clips in my boob that the surgeon left behind after surgery that helps them pinpoint the tumour area....I knew nothing about this...has anyone else been told this?
My boob is looking very tanned, but a bit like someone’s burnt me with an iron...OH says it looks a funny shape too 😱 it’s definitely a lot more uncomfortable....it’s not easy for me to go braless and everything I put on gets tight after about an hour!!
Im so glad it’s friday today....this week has been a bit stressful and long 😱 hopefully a weekend of not getting up at stupid o’clock and being able to chill a little may revitalise me!
Ive also got an end of treatment review today....although I havent yet finished but maybe it’s cause I’ve finished normal ones? Not sure what the meeting will entail??
Have a good day 😘😘✨😘😘
Ps worth adding that’s just the physical effects, all a bit tearful at times at the realisation of what I’ve been through (only diagnosed on 21/12 ) so been a real quick journey. Again hydration and good support goes a long way
Think the SEs are so individual, I am developing a healthy tan to the left side, I have broken skin around my snb scar under my arm and a blotchy nipple. Between my baps it can best be described as a heat rash, it’s all been very do-able. Despite being on a back to work plan with reduced hours, I am standing in for my boss for two weeks. I’m tired and currently celebrate seeing 9pm as a late night but it’s not been as bad as I expected. That said I recognise I don’t have children etc. Also think hydration plays a massive part, my worst fatigue has been at about 8am when I have slept for 8 hours and then wake up and drink tea and coffee. Felt very odd until realised I wasn’t drinking enough through the night. Lady Bowlers advise re fluid is so true - sorry quite a lengthy post but hopefully of interest to all still ✅ off treatment as to what might come next
No extra scans for me - they marked the square for the boost with a black sharpie and then used waterproof tapes to protect the ink as the tumour bed is in an unusual position and lining me up without this will be very trickey.
The last couple of days I had a bolus so no more bap squashing thanks goodness,
Shi they have done the same to me as they have Meesh. On boosters they do an image each time I suppose it is to see if the markers are in the right place on tumor bed. Last bap zapping for me tomorrow 🔔🔔 and then 💃💃 out the door!
I also have a CT scan tomorrow afternoon as when they did the ultrasound on liver they could not see properly because I had too much 💨💨, I definitely think it is a SE of 😎😎. However they have confirmed I have gall stones, oh joy, you watch they will start playing up now and will have to have more surgery, grrrrrr. Other than that boob is OK at the moment sill using the gel! Aveeno and E45.
Hope everyone is well xx
Shi, they've done multiple scans on me throughout as they have trouble positioning me. For the boosters they scan you each day (well they are with me). They pulled my leggings down again yesterday 😱I think it's because my muffin top interferes with the positioning.
Hello ladies! No18 ✅ and i wasn't on the table quite as long as yesterday😊 I had a bit of Dolly Parton 9-5 today and also Tom Jones it's not unusual. The radiographers were bopping in the treatment room, I told them they were making keeping still even more difficult 😂🤣😂
Evening ladies! No 16 ✅ for me and 2nd booster. Roma it seems we've both had issues with booster no2 I was in there 50-60 mins today as the imaging machine broke whilst I was in there so had to lie there and wait for it to be fixed, then they weren't happy with my positioning so had to have it redone as well as imaging. I was so cold I was shaking and they gave me a blanket. I really hope the next 3 are more straightforward.
chaffinch, all our rooms have that picture of sky and cherry blossom, I get it's the same picture 😂🤣😂
2nd booster, check ✅, 2 more to go! The machine remote was playing up so took loNger than normal today. Had ONC review as well and she was pleased with how it was going but did say that it may get sore in the following 2 weeks and doesn't want to see me until May. Hopefully it won't get too sore xx.
hope everyone is having a good day xx
Oh it is great to here that you are feeling better and sounds like things are settling down. I always used to go for a walk once a day just round the block whilst I was having my rads, made me feel so much better about things.
