Absolutely gutted that I won't be starting my rads tomorrow now. Just had a phone call from the hospital and they have had to cancel my appointment as one of the machines is broken! Been waiting to start since middle of January, feel like crying!
Welcome to the thread where you will get loads of support whilst you are having your rads.
Helloooo and welcome to the thread. If it is anything like me, I was given my appointments for the rest of week on the first day, then every Friday after that for the following week, or they might even give you all of them on your first day.
It wont be long before you are having your last session of active treatment
Great to hear you had good results with clear margins from your surgery. I start my 15 rads Wednesday 7th as well but at Christies in Salford so will be nice to see how you get along with yours. I got all my appointments when I went for my planning appointment last week so am sure they will give your your otther appointment times when you go tomorrow. I have got a late morning appointment tomorrow but then will be stuck in afternoon/evening rush hour for most of my other appointments unless they change any of them.
I was told that was one of the possible side effects when I had my rads in January 2017 to date I have not experienced any problems xx
Hi all, i have a planning meeting later this week. Im going to have RT to my right hand side. Ive been told that i may have scarring to my lungs and a cough 😯
Has anyone experienced this?
Welcome to the thread and I am sure you will get loads of support on here as you go through your rads.
It's been a long journey for me started in June when I was first Diagnosed after routine mommogram surgery on 4th September then discovered that tumours were in fact one large so had to have chemo which started on 4th November so now onto the radiotherapy
Had planning meeting last week so all tattooed and ready to start on 15th March 15 session but as Easter in middle will get a four day break half way through
Then after l will find out which hormone tablets I will be put on
The chemo thread has help me through that so hopefully we had help each other through this stage
🤗🤗🤗🤗😘😘⛄⛄❄❄ Stay warm
Yay that is another done. When I was having mine I had gaps of 4 and 3 days because it was over the Xmas period and they were fine with that.
Second one done and hopefully they will fly by. A little concerned as heavy snow expected tonight but they did say not to worry if I have to cancel tomorrow’s appointment as my treatment plan allows for some missed days they will just tag on the end or do a Saturday...have a slightly warm boob at the moment!
Yay, they will soon pass xxx
Hope you're all safe in this snowy blizzard. I started rads this week. It will be no. 4 today if I can make it there. Of all the weeks for my car to break down...It's now in the garage requiring a new alternator, belt and earth connector..as the AA stated...not sure when I'll get it back. Fortunately I've been relying on friends and family to take me to rads and back...not sure if anyone can take me today. May have to postpone..
Hope you are all doing well..
Yay, oh that is great the end of active treatment for you. Hope you have something lovely planned to celebrate xx Just remember to look after yourself for the next couple of weeks as the effects will still be with you.
I met some lovely people when I was having mine, you almost got to the point that you were looking out for them to see if they were having treatment at the same time as you xx x
I just finished my rads yesterday!! The forum has been a big help, thank you so much LadyBowler Helena for all your help and encouragement to us all. I had 15 plus 4 boosters and the month passed quite quickly, I kept meeting the same people and it got quite cheery at times! The staff were lovely. Good luck to everyone this month - hope the snow does not cause too many problems Mo xx
No at all, totally understand the end of this means the end of active treatment 🙂 🙂
I still remember the day I finished mine, it was great knowing that I did not have to do that journey again and that my treatment, albeit that I would be on tamoxifen for 10 years, had finished. xxx
I did manage to get to my appointment, had my tattoos etc and am now due to have my first of 15 sessions starting next Wednesday. Call me sad but I am so excited to get started as its been a long time coming, I had my surgery 8th December.
Good luck to everybody going through treatment and hope we all sail through it.
I hope so, it is awful to have the uncertanty with this flipping weather at the moment. We have had a couple of flurries today but they have not amounted to much.
Hoping to be joining this thread, fingers crossed that the snow doesn't stop me from getting me to my planning day tomorrow.
For those ladies who are continuing their rads during March or who are about to start them.
