Joan, I don't blame you for feeling a bit low. I'm finding this last cycle hard going to recover from. I had my mastectomy before chemo, so in theory I have finished my treatment . The thought of building myself up to have surgery after chemo, is understandably daunting. You just must want it all to be over. If it helps, I'm very pleased with my mastectomy and reconstruction. It looks pretty good, the perky boob of a 20 year old. Sadly, the other boob is still that of a 50 year old although my lovely surgeon is keen to do something to it to hitch it up so they are a better match. Personally, right now I just want to be left alone and not prodded anymore so I won't be considering any more surgery for quite some time if I can help it. This cycle does seem to be taking its time to recover from. I feel loads better than I did 4/5 days ago, but still far from normal. The skin on my face has gone all spotty, sore and itchy, I look dreadful and it feels really uncomfortable. Hoping this is just going to be short term and will get better in a few days. Rosie, thinking of you and your family tomorrow. Hope you all have a wonderful day. Lovewine, can't believe they haven't decided on next chemo or not. Surely, they have to make up the drugs in advance, so they must know the day before at the latest. Hope you get it sorted.
