Hope it’s all going well for us. I love the idea of meeting up. Whether I can be there depends on the location decided - travel might be tricky.x
At the moment i am a bit in limbo and waiting to find out what happens next. I am due to start Letrozole but my blood test was borderline as to the Zoladex. As i have just got my first period since chemo i assume something will need to be done about the ovary estrogen production but this could be ovary removal. I have appointments at the start of November with the oncologist and the palstic surgeon to see what happens next plus a referral to a gynacologist to see if there are any options to remove the ovaries without messing up the DIEP tummy surgery. I assume it will be zoladex but there are complications with other medicines i am on so I am in a bit of a mess in that respect.
Anyway I am free as far as i am aware for a December meet up and would love to see you all. What about you gygi? Do you have any re balance surgery planned yet as i know you were talking about that.
Sal glad to hear it went well. I am having the same op on the 22nd but just on one side initially. Had pre op Yesterday and an echo so looks like its going ahead this time as not heard anything today - it was postponed from the 3rd.
Many thaks for you kind replie.
Blue boob after that dye stuff they inject in. Ive gone one better I now have two new boobs, one lump removed and the other boob resized.
The whole surgery thing was so much easier than I expected. I have bin so lucky, with all my trearment so far . I don't have chemo fuzz. just swiss cheese brains, I keep losing thinggs, words , the inability to spell corectly
So many apoligies for the weired spelling etc. I was just about to type that I was looking forward to the radio, but maybe that isn' t the right thing to say.
Thanks again and good luck to all Sal
Hope it all goes well tomorrow, Sal.
Post-surgery, post-chemo, post radiotherapy my biggest problem now is my dreadful nails - only attached from halfway down and I think at least one is going to split across and fall off. Still got neuropathy in fingers & toes. These are tiny problems given what went before. On the plus side, I’m growing eyebrows & eyelashes. Someone told me about it’s the small things like this giving pleasure. Small? It’s huge for me. Means my body is recovering from the vile things done to it. I’m grateful for treatment but it hasn’t been very pleasant.
Hi just after a little advice, I had my radioactive injection today ready for the surgery tomorrow. They have said I will get the blue dye tomorrow , but what happens next.
I was unconcerned till now. but the wobbles have hit.
Also when i had my lumpectomy back in march I was told i may wake up with blue boob but i had had a nuclear injection and scan the day before which should show the nodes effected but there was no guarantee i wouldn't need the blue dye too. I also had a tomsil biopsy in the same operation and was told the inside of my mouth would be yellow so was expectiong to be multi coloured but it was just the yellow mouth
