Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Gill, Cath and company

 

just picked up messages and will get in touch Gill.  Thoughts are with you for Friday and everyone else this time of year.

im currently away in Cornwall for a weeks break, lovely weather, walking and a bit of a relax.

really hoping I can make the get together, but have booked a holiday in Croatia around that time, so it might be tough getting more time off work - I will do my very best though.

Thank you Clare, Cath and slydog.  Well after another 3 boob squishes and ultrasound, radiologist was unable to find anything at all.  Explanation - breast tissue sometimes lies on top of each other and looks suspect!  So happy to say ALL CLEAR - in Cath’s words doing a little dance here in the rain with sheer relief.

 

It has given me a kick up the bum though as I have slipped back into work, work, work and not enough play.  Will have to remedy that.  Will be going to yoga tonight to try and rebalance the crap energy.🧘‍♀️

 

Hope everyone is feeling good and all results are coming back happy.

 

take care all and see you soon - do we have a date in September?

Whoo hoo! Fantastic news! Delighted all went well.

Hello lovely ladies, sorry I haven’t been in touch for ages, been so busy still working full time and currently remodelling the kitchen!

5th year has certainly caught up so quickly and just had results of latest mammogram- came back with a shadow in the same place as original,  although nothing tangible, so back for ultrasound tomorrow and possible biopsy.  Sorry, but needed to send the fear somewhere, the flashbacks to that original diagnosis are hitting me from everywhere and I’m not really keeping it together right now.  Keep you fingers and everything else if possible.  I know this doesn’t always mean another primary or recurrence, but I’m not seeing that right now.

 

if I get through this unscathed please count me in for the get together wherever it might be.

 

look after yourselves.  Love hbunny


Sending you huge hugs, hbunny. I know how frightening something like that can be. The same thing happened to me at my mamo last year. Fortunately, it tuned out just to be calcification, but going through all that again...the worry, the vac biopsy... It's not nice.

 

We're all here for you. Please let us know how you get on tomorrow.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Helen, so sorry to hear your news but please please try to hold back the worry until you’ve had your tests. Difficult/impossible I know. Please do let  us know how you get on. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve been on here, we’re all here for each other. It’s that time of year when we’re all going to be having what should be the last of our annual mammograms. 

 

I really hope you can make the meet up in September in Bath,  it will be great to finally put faces to the names. 

 

I have everything crossed for you for tomorrow. Xx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Gill
Sorry to hear you had the horrible virus like me. I can definitely emphasize. It takes you a while to get back to par too. Had to cut back My training by half once I could recommence.
Hoping to be back to A1 by next week 😉
Take care

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

 Hi Clare. I had that horrible virus and laid up for 10 days. Never had anything like it in my life . Taking me a while to pick up energy levels. 

 

London is a long way from Cornwall. Bristol is about half way . Once I have everyone's email or phone number we can decide.

Hi Cath. Bristol is just over 100mi from London. It takes between 1 1/2hrs to 2 hrs by train . And maybe 1 1/2hrs by car.
Hope you are keeping well. I had this horrible virus cough and sinusitis (my weakness) but well now.
Stayed indoors for 11days so my training for The London marathon is behind

Take care ladies

Hiya Clare,

 

Sorry to hear about the virus. I'm sure you'll catch up on your training. When is your marathon?

 

Thanks for the info on Bristol. Hubs and I will be flying in, so won't be driving. Is Bristol central for everyone or can we move our meeting closer to London?

 

Happy to go with the majority.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Gill

Thank you for offering to set up our meet up. I see your email address has been removed, perhaps we could set up a Facebook group, that way it would be easy to keep in touch for any date/venue changes, plus it won’t result in a random group of women wandering around with red carnations trying to meet other women doing the same! 🥴

The dates are ok for me but I’m fairly flexible. Just one question, how did you arrive at Bristol as a destination?

Christmas is fast approaching so need to get wrapping .

Hi Gill,

 

Had a fab time at the wedding, so much so, I'm still recovering. lol Was a brilliant venue and the bride (and groom) looked amazing. Such a happy occasion. :-)

 

Dogs are just big furballs of love, aren't they? I don't know where I'd be without mine. Dex is now 13 years old and slowing down a lot - a bit like myself. lol

 

I've been so focused on the wedding that I haven't really given much thought to Christmas. Guess I'd better get my skates on and get it sorted. *Gulp*

 

Merry Christmas, July Ladies.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Flossie - having a dog is a life-changing event. Our dog turned 13 this year and is slowing down a lot, but is still a major part of our family. Enjoy your time with Nala.

 

Being Triple negative, I'm definitely on the countdown to my 5-year anniversary! :-)

 

Clare - great to hear from you. Sounds like you're keeping yourself busy and out of trouble. lol

I haven't had a chance to stress over Christmas yet as we have our son's wedding on the 17th. Starting to get excited about it now.

 

Wishing all the July ladies a Merry Christmas and A happy & Peaceful New Year.

Hi all. Just thought I would pop online to say. All well. Busy dog walking running and playing steelpan but all fun. My motto at present is to enjoy life to the fullest.
Flossie I have experienced life change because of dog ownership. It definitely helps to keep you busy.
Take care all and don't stress over Christmas

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Great to see this thread is still active, life surely goes on I hope for all of us.

 

We have now aquired a puppy (Rhodesian Ridgeback female) her name is Nala and it is a different type of life having a dog. I am sure a lot of you can relate.

But good to see some of the veterans o this thread.

 

Not long left to our 5 year anniversary, which for triple negative means a fantastic prognosis, so it would be fab to get there unscaved  Smiley Happy

 

Take care everyone

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

 Cath mine was the chemo. I am like you with triple negative so no meds.

Sylvie like the idea blood flow to head would help..I tried expensive shampoo,conditioner but no difference.

When I had my retirement party wanted pink hair .spent over 3 hours at hairdressers she dyed it twice but didn't take  and just washed out ..

HOPE your grows back once meds have stopped xx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Thanks Cath. I don’t want to sound like a whinge bucket but I do feel the hair loss is very noticeable but friends say my hair looks good. I guess we’re all hard on ourselves. I had my hair cut today and the hairdresser put so much product in it it’s so thick. Perhaps I need to get the hang of hair products, which I dislike. 😩 Gill, funny enough when I was walking to the hairdresser I thought about shaving it all off, how weird is that!

Clare, one if the reasons I decided to try running was to increase blood flow to my head to help my hair. I thought maybe if I got more active that would make a difference. If nothing else it will help my general health so it’s a win win. I’m not ready to din wigs again, I really hated that. 🙁

Lovely warm day here, started wet, git warm and sunny now the clouds are rolling back in. Oh well. Off out to watch a bit of am dram. Xx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Gill and Slyvia - so sorry to hear your hair hasn't grown back properly. Is that a side effect of the medication you're both taking?

 

Losing your hair is one of the most personally devastating things about cancer - even when you know your life is on the line, going bald is tough. It growing back is how we feel 'normal' again. For you both it must be a constant reminder.

 

Huge hugs to you both.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Sylvia I feel it's so visible but friends and family keep saying WOW it's growng,it's looking thicker. Am thinking of head shave again .not sure it encourages growth though. .Feel for you .xx
