Hi Lovely Ladies,
I haven't posted for a while either.
I'm not long home from a 4 day stay in hospital. Temp spiked, low BP and Nuets etc. Feeling okay now but chemo has been delayed this week (I was due in today). Hey ho, fingers crossed I can get back on track next week.
Sue and Amanda,
Congratulations! You've got to the end of the very long chemo road, it must feel great. Happy celebrations!
Sue - the winter walking in Austria sounds like fabulous fun.
Tarnia - I have a constant sore and runny nose but haven't suffered so much with runny eyes despite having lost 95% of my lashes. Sounds like it's one more of the many SEs we have to put up with. Thank goodness they are temporary eh!
Good luck to everyone elso who is still going through treatment.
Take care all

Yes runny eyes for me, as well and a runny nose! As like you worse when I go out. My nose just constantly runs- spoke to Onc about it and he didn’t really come up with anything.....just another SE!

Hope everyone is doing well. I’m just wondering if anyone else has suffered from extremely runny eyes on Docetaxel? I’ve had 2 rounds so far and this time round my eyes are streaming especially when I go outside! Anyone else suffered from this or have any tips?

Hello ladies-not written on here for a while but have been keeping up with all your progress you brave ladies and some of you have certainly been through the mill!!!
I rang the bell in chemo unit yesterday after X6 FEC-T. Not been the easiest few months have to say and at the beginning of August that last date seemed way off...... It goes remarkably quickly doesn't it? Been in a bit of a chemo blur all the way through which could probably be partly to do with it, as well as in built coping mechanisms!
Have 20 radiotherapy appointments starting 12th December (80 mile round trip) but small problem in the grand scheme of things.
wishing you all a speedy recovery- the end of treatment is in sight and we will be glad to see the new year!!
love Amanda X

Well done, it’s a tough gig this chemo malarkey, after the first cycle it’s hard to think how you are going to get through it! I hope you rung the 🔔. Good news on your radiotherapy dates, I know it’s creeping over Christmas but you’ll be fine
i had my last T today, just got the pesky side effects to get through! We don’t have a 🔔 on our chemo ward so the nurses ring a bell on their iPhone! Bless them, lots of hugs & well wishes all round.
Hope all you other ladies are doing ok

Thank you for your good wishes with my last Chemo treatment- all now completed YEAH...I can’t believe i have got through it all. I remember my first FEC treatment and spending the first night being sick every couple of hours and saying that I couldn’t get through it all....but here I am!
I have aplanning meeting for radiotherapy therapy on Tuesday 20th and then I start treatment on the 3rd Dec. I have been told that I will have 4weeks worth. 3 weeks plus an extra week to give me an extra zap! I also have a bone strengthening infusion planed for the 4th Dec. Unfortunately the radio will be going on over Christmas but luckily they don’t have appointments on Christmas or Boxing Day, so that is a nice relief!
Hope everyone gets on ok with the rest of your treatment
