Hi everyone, I have been reading the posts here and hope I am posting in the right place, you all sound so friendly and I wasn't sure where to post this.
Here goes. Yesterday i finished all my treatments. From dx and surgery in November, through chemo from January to May (nasty experience) and 20 shots of radiotherapy, i am done. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I have walked the dog in the wind and rain early this morning along the beach, I came home and juiced kale, celery/peppers/ carrots/cucumber and sweet potato, drank it, boiled two organic eggs, ate them and drank a green tea.
Physically, I am overweight and trying to do something about it. I have filled in and sent an "exercise by invitation form" from my surgery to my local sports centre and am waiting to hear from them. My hair is starting to come back now, it's grey, but at least it's coming back. I'm waiting for the fatigue to hit me, I've been warned that the next 2 weeks may be quite difficult.
Mentally, i'm ok on the surface but a smouldering cauldron of emotions underneath. I could cry at the drop of a hat. I have cancelled a social event I was aiming to be better by as I just can't cope with a crowd of people.
What i think i'm asking for is reassurance from you guys that what I'm feeling is normal? I'm not on any hormonal treatment as I am triple neg so as far as treatment goes that's it. I have looked into diet and lifestyles and am trying to be as healthy as possible, but underneath it all am I just kidding myself?
