Re: 5 weeks post surgery

@nickik - I agree with @Tili lovely supportive comments, and I also wanted to send you a gentle hug as you recover. I also wondered whether you have read Dr Peter Harvey’s article - http://www.workingwithcancer.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/After-the-treatment-finishes-then-what...

It is very normal to feel a bit lost after treatment ends, after months of treatment and medical appointments all of a sudden we are on our own. Tili really is right that it’s best to take one day at a time and give both your body and mind a chance to heal.

Don’t forget we are all here any time you want to chat or offload. And if you are ever concerned about your symptoms do give your BCN a call, or the nurses on here. Evie xx

Thanks for the kind words Tili, I can't help worrying that I'm not feeling better, so I'm pleased that you say you felt similar xx

Re: 5 weeks post surgery

Dear Nicki,

Firstly, congratulations after just 5 weeks, up and about taking walks, very well done to you brave lady. 

I’m thinking what you have been through, it’s only natural how you are feeling, good results always leave us on a high, which is wonderful, however your body has taken a big knock and needs to heal. So pleased to hear no further treatment needed. Please take care one day at a time, rest and relax. Time to enjoy life, as I always say one day at a time.

I can remember feeling the same trying to run before I could walk.

Sending lots of happiness to you, keep well and safe. Big hugs Tili x

5 weeks post surgery

Hey all, I am 5 weeks post surgery for a double masectomy and 10 weeks from last chemo. I had the all clear over a week ago and require no further treatment.

After the initial fab news, elation and sharing the news with my loved ones, I was feeling good and had gradually been building up my staminar by walking lots!

Suddenly however I've lost my energy and have felt very tired, almost like I did through chemo, even down to the bad taste and peripheral neuropathy. Is this normal? I don't want to become paranoid and be forever thinking somethings wrong with me.
