Hello all, have my second Chemo tomorrow on the mobile Chemo bus, my first Chemo i was a bit tired and a sore mouth, but that was all. Good luck to all of you going through treatment. It really lovely that people are sharing their experience,
Hi there, checking in.
It's Day 14 for me. Still no side effects, nothing. I'm aware of a few hairs coming out, in my fingers, although it's not dropping out in lumps - yet. Luckily it's really really short already, I'm happy I did that.
I've got a catch up with my oncologist today, I'm sure he'll be expecting me to trip in with a list of woes, but I've got nothing. Well, one question. His letter laying out my treatment said 4 FEC cycles and 4 T cycles but a document I got from the oncology nurses showing my drug list from the first chemo session and it says I'm having 6 cycles. If I could reduce it to 6 from 8, I'd be cockahoop! Although, then the sensible side of me says maybe I should just blitz those cells with the extra cycles.
I'm also going to try to get a definitive answer about exercise. I don't know what I can/can't do with a picc line in. I don't want to do anything to compromise it. Also, I wondered if doing intensive exercise might cause a problem with blood pumping through it at an increased rate. Anyway, I did a spin class last night and I'm still alive, for now!
Hiya Willie,, it just so happens I'm doggy sitting for the next two weeks. We could meet up somewhere pretty like Elvaston Castle and walk the pooches xxx
