Thank you for your lovely wishes, I really really appreciate them. I have settled my mind now to do what I preach, deal with what I know and, what I dont know I cant do anything about at the moment.

 

I am bowling tomorrow in a mixed match, so I will deliver a wood in your mum's memory xxx  I love it when I bowl as nothing else matters when you are on that green for those few hours.  Mind you I was thinking last night I would rather have spent the time in my garden, oh how my thinking has changed since I found the love for my garden, bowls now comes second to it.

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend, the weather certainly looks as if it is going to play ball for us.

 

I am just waiting for the grass to dry so I can mow my lawns, the rest of the day is going to be spent on the patio might even get our lunch out there

 

Sending everyone hugs and wishing you all well.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I finished reads on 3 April so still using E45 at night but even though I have been excercise my shoulder is quite stiff and painful but so are my knees so not sure if it's still a chemo hangover or as I started Tamoxifen on Monday. Also had tummy pains neusea and bit light headed so hope it will settle down

 

I've got some lights but noticed the other day only 3 were lighting up so think I will need to get some more so you can pick me up on your way πŸ›«πŸ›«πŸ–πŸ–

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi everyone! Alibobs those lights sound fab. We have some wired fairy lights round our cabin in the garden that come on every night, love them!

Spiderwoman, I was told to carry on with rt moisturising regime for 2 weeks but I have decided to carry on until all my e45 is gone but I'm just moisturising once a day in the morning and have taken to doing the other boob too as I wouldn't want it to be left out or have one wrinkly dry boob and one nicely moisturised one πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚I finished on 12/3

To be honest I did it religiously for 3 weeks after treatment but then I stopped.  i use my own body moisturiser now but not very good at doing that on a regular basis xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I was told to carry on for 6 weeks after end of rads. To he honest I now just apply scar gel or bio oil to both scar areas and moisturise as normal after bathing. It's almost 8 week since end of mine. I still do exercises but use hand weights and I go to body pump and spin classes. Helena you sound like a girl after my own heart with your lights!!πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Thanks for coming back so quickly, in terms of moisturising, how long did you carry on for? Trying to keep drinking the same level of water as think it’s so beneficial but E45 routine daily just makes me feel like normality is still evading me slightly

Flipping heck you would have been blown away in our garden today it was that windy and wet.

 

Ooohhhh solar lights, Colin bought me a couple of new sets for the glass containers I have around the garden, AND he also bought me a string of dragonfly solar lights that I have put on the fence, they have multi coloured bodies, I will try and take a pic of them to show you later xxxx

When I finished my rads I was advised to continue with my exercises for a good month afterwards, I only managed to do them twice a day but it really did help.  I was also advised to continue moisturising and keeping up the fluid intake for that length of time as well. xxx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hiya Alibobs, the decking and lights sounds great! Maybe if you could land a big one, we could all head off to the real Club Tropicana βœˆοΈπŸŒ΄β›±πŸ€­

 

I have to say all considered I feel well, feel almost guilty putting this on but think it’s important for positive stories. Touching wood as I type this but so far so good on the tamoxifen and rt seems a  lifetime ago (finished 2/3) - had bn call me last week and she suggested I should still be moisturising and stretching as the radio is still working. Not quite what the RT ladies said so am interested in what others experiences/advise have been?

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Mai7 just seen the link you put on but when I clicked on it was not there. Hope everyone in the 'club' is doing ok and enjoying all the spring like weather etc. I've been out planting some bedding pansies and petunias today. Also adorned my decking with new solar lights, a passion of mine!!! Lol!! Can't wait for it to get dark tonight so my 'disco lights switch on!!! Hubby worried cos he says nearby airport may divert flights to our garden ad I have to many lights!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’—πŸ’—

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I think that chemo thins your skin, I’ve done loads of walking over the past 2 months and have had plenty of blisters. The plus side I have baby soft feet with no hard skin 🀣.
Alibobs, you asked earlier about anastrazole. There don’t seem to be many people who are prescribed it. I’ve been on it for 8 weeks. I’m 51 and am just post menopausal but HER2+ and onHerceptin. My oncologist says this is best oestrogen blocker out there and judging by how it’s dried up me lady bits, they must be onto something. Apparently long term compliance is low because of this. I’m not keen after just 2 months but treating daily with Replens and coping. Hoping oncologist will prescribe it when I see her on 10th May because at Β£10 a month over 5 years it will get expensive!!
Lovely to see so many of us October chemo ladies here post treatment and being joined by the November crew and post rads ladies too. Time to live life to the full xx

otter I’m exactly with you on not being able to find anything to wear...but also can’t get my head round dieting just yet so not sure what I’m gonna do!  I even had to buy new sunglasses yesterday as my last year’s ones looked rubbish with my new very short hair 😱 😎 

 

Heres yesterday’s pick of tune....thought it would still be good for today  https://g.co/kgs/U9sdCS

 

Im not sure I’m cleverer enough to form a complication of all the tunes but may give it a go!!

Both of which had burst by the time I hobbled home. My hubby was sunning himself in the garden, he couldn't believe his eyes when I.took off my shoes. My heels were covered in blood and my trainers were literally red inside!!!! That will teach Me! Flip flops are De rigueur today!!!!πŸ’—πŸ’—

Thank you ladies! Quick update. All is Well!!! Yay!! Had physical exam and the onco says absolutely nothing to worry about. The raised red lump is probably a bit of a reaction to a dissolvable stitch on the snb scar!!! Definitely nothing sinister!! Phew!! She said I have done really well and to consider the cancer cured????? Wow!! That sounded good but is it?? I'm so relieved!! Hope you are all well too πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Thanks 

 

Yes it has been a long old journey can really believe I've come out the other side maybe not in one piece but feeling better than I thought

Spiderwomen I think keeping a diary is a good idea when I start Tamoxifen so I can see if they are SE or not

my next dig step is getting back to work as its changed so much since I left in November basically when I left my dept was going through a review and my job was at risk of redundancy and I had to apply for my job which I got but the rest of the time either didn't or were so fed up left so just left me 😱😱😱 they have appointed 3 new people all earning more than me 😳😳 so I will feel like the new girl as they are all about 20 years younger than me and will have all settled in so not really looking forward to it

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

And a huge welcome to Otter 65, pull up a sun bed πŸ₯‚πŸ–, blimey you have had a long old journey. So far I have found the big T(moxifen) to be ok. Got a diary going as was really reluctant to take it but if I’m honest I do feel a certain amount of relief in knowing the protection it provides and a lot of what I’m experiencing was pre the big T in fairness. I do appreciate thought that all our journeys are so very different. Sorry long way of saying Helloa! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Ha ha Meesh, some days I could take on the world with a golf club! πŸ˜‚ Club T is lots like a package holiday. Sometimes you are by the pool chatting and  making friends (sharing experiences) and mostly you are out and about exploring...Exactly as we should be post treatment. We know where to come for post treatment support with like minded people and dropping by occasionally to share how life moves on and how good it is β›±πŸ–πŸ₯‚

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello ladies! Welcome Otter of course you can join us. Good to hear you've finished treatment. I've put a stone on during treatment but started this week in my campaign to get rid of it!

 

Spiderwoman, good to hear you've got a new hobby. I think my OH is glad I didn't take up golf at the same time as starting the tamoxifen as he might have ended up with a golf club wrapped round his head πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£I didn't think I was moody but clearly he did. It seems to have passed now, but the hot flushes that started during chemo are still raging and I have cold ones now too ☹️ I had acunpuncture fir the flushes yesterday, I got home and had a hot flush πŸ™„but they do seem to be slightly less intense so 🀞🏻

 

Its been quiet round the pool I think everyone must be snoozing in the sun β˜€οΈ

Afternoon ladies of Tropicana, getting set for the weekend - hoping for some sunshine β˜€οΈ! I’ve taken up golf as a new hobby, so far learning how to putt and drive (with mixed results πŸŒοΈβ€β™€οΈ - balls flying everywhere! Everyone duck on the sun beds πŸ˜‚)

 

Week one one done and dusted on the Tamoxifen, no side effects apart from a slightly windier bottom! Watch out when I bend down to pick up those golf balls!
