Re: January chemo starters ?

Hi Ladies,

 

I hope you are all ok?

 

I finished Rads yesterday 21 in total and I have an appointment with the allergy specialist tomorrow to have a skin test for Anastrozole. I am allergic to Macrogol 3350 and 6000 following Chemo which is one of the compounds found in Anastrozole and also in Tax. Since the chemo has made me post menopausal I am trying these first before alternatives. Thankfully I won’t need Tamoxifen as it didn’t suit me and made me experience numbness etc. They have found a brand of Anastrozole that has Macrogol 400 and 600 in it so this is the one I will be tested on and if all alright I will have to take me first tablet in a hospital to see if I’m okay. Wish me luck. What a palava. 🤺

 

Lots of love to all xxxx

Re: January chemo starters ?

Hello, I am after your opinions again as you all have a few months on me. I had my CT results today, they say they have found what looks to be 2 cysts. One on my liver and one on my ovary. They are going to ultrasound me tomorrow. Although the Onc said she was optimistic that they are cysts it needs to be confirmed. I’m so scared this is more cancer. Has anyone else had cysts found on a CT?
The good thing is I’ll find out tomorrow but I feel like I’m back at the dark days of diagnosis again. Xx

Re: January chemo starters ?

Hi Aliand...I had major joint pains absolutely everywhere!! I took a Tramadol, 2 Paracetamol and a Naproxen to do that run Sunday!!! 

Ive started taken a Naproxen at breakfast and I think it’s helping!!!

Re: January chemo starters ?

This Zoladex has aged me at least 20 years. Everything aches and my hands are painful and I’ve no strength in them. The though of being like this for 2 years isn’t very enticing ! Yet I’ll do anything to increase my chances of bing here for my kids.
