Bertha - so glad you are out (again)! Why is your tummy a pin cushion? I only got the injections for thrombosis into my tummy...
At Xmas time, I had a ladder of ever increasing blue marks up one of my veins on my right arm though, cannula in another vein. When they run out of space they started at the wrist - I can still see the shadow of that hematoma. 😞
On the general upside in my current rather lazy life, I finally emptied the 3 removal boxes in my bedroom this morning - they have been staring at me since early Dec. Have not quite organised my wardrobe yet, but these were the last 3 boxes from the move ( lets not mention the 10 sitting in the garage and then there is also a full storage room, that requires emptying. I SO have to become more ruthless about STUFF). Anyway, it has been the most energy I have displayed in weeks 🙂
Pam - it sounds so lovely that your oh is planning this for you! And the holiday next week! So sweet!
Sandytoes, a cup size in one sitting? How many sitting will you have 🙂
SuperT - a C-cup seroma? Wowh! Hope it goes down soon! Mine was spread across a wide area, couldn't see it week from the outside - but I have reported plenty about that 😉
Lorna, must have mixed you up re work. Good luck for Feb instead 🙂
As I have been off since 1st Dec, which has been the longest since dx, I now can't quite imagine how to fit it in again. Have become so lazy :). Well, one step at a time, RT first, then I ll have a think about phased return.
I was well positioned for a promotion next month, but bc put a stop to it. I will probably be considered for next year instead. I d like the recognition, but I am in two minds if I want to have the added stress that comes with it....
Have any of you read any BC books? I didn't realise they existed until a friend mentioned that she has read a couple to understand better what I am going through, by reading similar real stories, their thoughts, treatments etc. I thought that was really sweet. Anyway, I have now also read a few in the last few weeks. So far, I quite liked 'the c-word' ( nothing like the American series of the same name). Sandytoes, there seem to be parallels to you - well without having met you 😉
