Hi July starters,
I started FEC-T chemo on 23 June, and thought a postitive story from June might be useful here...
I am on day 5 and I think things aren't as bad as I'd led myself to believe. I managed the cold cap - the cold was OK, but the strap under my chin was tight! Very few side effects - day 4 I felt a bit fuzzy in the head, but very manageable. It's no worse than a bit of a hangover. I'm feeling a bit of a fraud!! People keep asking me how I am, and I'm feeling fine.
Good luck all!
Hi feel the fear
ive seen your posts over the months. Welcome to the July starters, although strictly I'm a June (30th).
Think I'm going to try cold cap, but I'll see how it goes.
Hi Clare, you have the same name and spelling as my daughter. I too start my chemo this Friday. Getting a PICC line fitted tomorrow. I'm having FEC-T, what are you having?
I'm eager to get on with the chemo, this has all been going on too long for my liking, but I'm not really totally recovered from surgery yet.
Hi Carol nice to meet you I start my chemo on Friday for twelve weeks so I fall on June and July group. I've decided not to use the cold cap if I'm going to loose my hair any way x
