Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Karen, I'm so sorry you had such a disappointing visit this time. I do understand how you feel like Letrozole is your crutch, so it must be a blow to know you won't be on it for as long as you hoped.

 

Here's hoping you get a nicer consultant next time.

 

Hugs

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

I can’t believe it will be our 5 year anniversary next year, that time has gone so quickly!
I had latest oncologist visit in the week, unfortunately my consultant has changed and I will now only be on Letrozole for a total of 5 years whereas my previous consultant who I loved had told me it would be at least 10 years. I know not everyone gets on with Letrozole but it has been my crutch and I don’t feel ready to lose it anytime soon.
The oncologist also told me I’m at ‘moderate risk’ I was still trying to take in what he told me previously that I didn’t ask what of ...recurrence? spread?. I suppose nothing has really changed but I’m used to coming away feeling reassured. Fingers crossed I will have a different consultant next time!!

Clare - I googled the carnival, and although I'm not sure I saw your truck, the pics are amazing! What a crowd. Looks like a fun event.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Lovewine - how amazing that you've all met up. We have talked about it, hopefully arranging it for our 5-year mark. It would be nice to put faces to names after all this time. :-)

 

Thanks again for the good wishes.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Clare - playing steelpan in a Carnival sounds amazing! Good luck and let us know how you get on.

 

Sylvie, Julie & Karen - I definitely had a big glass of something last night accompanied by lots of chocolate. lol Strangely, though, the relief is only really setting in today. I was so geared up for bad news that the good news has taken me by surprise. :-)

 

Gill - you're so right, life is fragile and it's meant to be enjoyed. I intend to enjoy every sec. :-)

 

Hugs to all the July ladies.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Fantastic news Cath, so pleased for you, you must be so relieved. Have a huge glass of something tonight in celebration! I’m going to have to google the other news, if it shows an increased risk recurrence it’s not good but it is good that it’s been picked up. Keep us posted won’t you.

Have a wonderful weekend. Xx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Cath I just saw your feedback .couldn't see it b4. A glitch in the system I suppose. I am so pleased that the results were positive and not cancerous.
Feeling happy for you now.
