Ah Wee Burd that is so good that you got to finish - hoping you get through the recovery from it in time for your choir - that’s something to look forward to.
Had my last T last Thursday and am just about over the sicky feeling but also suffering from the dreaded diarrhoea and am very fatigued - got up this morning feeling full of energy - went on a tiny walk with dog and had to have a lie down 😂 legs are like lead. So realise I need to be more realistic in my plans for the days and build up slowly - had great plans today but mostly slept and read.
Have appointment to see surgeon next week so trying to build up for being prepared for that.
The weight gain is a pain isn’t it? In the grand scheme of cancer things I know it’s not but helping to feel good is not helped by it. I have 2 family weddings in August and bought outfits earlier in the year - dreading trying them on now 😱 so am going to focus on good nutrition and gentle exercise for next month and hopefully they will still fit. I find after Docetaxol and steroids Imreally crave carbs - which obviously doesn’t help but am hoping I am through the worst of that now and can get back,to some healthy colourful food.
Take care everyone and good luck with next stage - whatever that is for you xxx

Sorry to hear of your delay WeeBurd, fingers crossed it’s dealt with quickly but it sounds as if you are getting great care and attention from your health professionals. It must be frustrating, especially when so near the finishing post. I still have 2 weekly sessions to go and veins are hanging on in there so i’ll pop in to the forum now and then.
Steroids have kicked in again so back to prowling the garden in the middle of the night to try and tire myself out so I can get back to sleep, although surprisingly i’m never tired in the morning when I get up for work so no rest for the wicked. I think my boss is slightly confused how I keep turning up each day apart from the treatment days and still carrying on as normal.
Congrats to everyone ending this stage of treatment it’s amazing how we all cope with this process especially after those briefing sessions where all the possible side effects are gone through in such detail you’d be forgiven for locking the door and hiding under the duvet until it was all over.
Take care and i’m sure you’ll get to that final treatment, maybe just a little later but in the meantime enjoy the view of the Ochills.

Last Docetaxol done today - felt quite emotional leaving the unit - they have been an amazing support during this **bleep** time. Will still see them after the surgery as I am having herceptin injections too Macneech - have 14 to do as have had 4 lots whilst having the Docetaxol. Also having mastectomy and axillary clearance - said it would be 4-6 weeks from now so will be expecting appointments soon-also interested in any advice on that.
will then be having the radiotherapy. So still a long way to go but feeling like I’ve reached a big milestone today - still got to get over it mind - usually have a good a couple of days first whilst the steroids are in system so will try and enjoy the good weather - although having a new boiler tomorrow as that very annoyingly conked out just before we went on holiday- currently boiling water in kettle and having showers with bucket and jug standing in bath - oh joy !
Sending you hugs Wee Burd and hoping the infection hasn’t stopped your last treatment - I think the thought of it being delayed could be quite upsettting when you e had it mind this is the end - but you will get there so take care.
Thank you all for the support on this journey that we are all getting to the end of - hope we will still continue through the rest of the treatments it would be good to hear how everyone is doing. I will probably look on the surgery threads for some tips and advice so may see you over there as well- well done everyone for getting this far and take care for the rest of the journey xxxxxxx
