well today I had my last chemo yay 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 And what a lovely feeling it is ringing that bell!!
Just got to get through this week of side effects and wait for the hair and eyelashes to re grow! But for now I’m happy to be at this stage.
Hope everyone is doing ok.

Hi Lovely Ladies,
Pleased to report that after an unwanted delay I had chemo again today. Just 2 more sessions to go now so fingers crossed my last session should be Friday 14th December - yippeee!
Jude - great news that eyelashes and eyebrows are coming back so quickly too! There seem to be a number of serums available to help encourage eyelash growth. I brought 'Revita lash' but another one I heard about more recently is 'Rapid Lash'; I heard about this through one of the nurses at the hospital, she had the most amazing eyelashes I thought they were false but she said it was down to 'Rapid Lash'!
Sue & Sunflower - good luck with radiotherapy!
Ktk - congrats on completing radiotherapy - another milestone reached! And thanks for the top tips.
Tarnia - glad you got a 'fix' sorted for your runny eyes.
Good luck to everyone going through traetment.
Take care, Cat Xxx

I had my radio pre assessment meeting the other day, which consisting of a CT scan, lots of measurements and breathing exercises. My cancer was in the left breast and obviously concerns re location of heart. Apparently by breathing in pushes the heart and lungs out of the zone....well I hope!
I know start on the 10th Dec as they want 3clear weeks from last chemo before I start. Initially due to start on 3rd.
4 weeks of radio so due to finish first week in Jan, but as others have said at least the traffic won’t be so bad over the Xmas period!
I also start my hormone therapy next week, just tablets so hoping the se won’t be too bad. Bone strengthening infusion as well so back to the chemo unit for that and that take place every 6 weeks. The hormone treatment can cause oestioperosis (if that the correct spelling).
Nearly there everyone xx
