Hi Reddi, I'm from the Oct '17 thread and finished chemo in March. Like you my hair has come back well (really thick on top, I've had to have it thinned out twice!) but my eyebrows seem to have given up half-way! I can feel that hairs are there, but they're not showing much yet! x

@SallyG63 Exciting! The voucher would be a complete waste on me (the one time I went skiing, I took out a mother and two small children), but the nice watch sounds fab. Good luck with RT -- 2 down by the time your read this!
@Kip I'm getting the creaky old muscle aches now, too. I don't know if it is lingering chemo side effects or Herceptin side effects or some combo. Some might be walking off-kilter to avoid putting pressure on the spots where my soles are still tender and developing blisters; some might be wakling off-kilter post-surgery. Too many confounding variables.
@ktk You're an empty nester again, now, yes, with all of the brood off at uni? I hope the house doesn't feel too, too quiet.
@cdc How did your planning meeting with the surgical team go? Less than a week to go! I expect you must be excited and nervous.
@Shi & @Mishy18 Another fan of the red dot shampoo here -- thank you! 🙌
I get my pathology results tomorrow afternoon, followed immediately by ophthalmology check to see if my eye has recovered from the inflammation in the uvea and the elevated pressure/glaucoma scare. I'm so hoping they sign me off to wear contacts again. I think my eyebrow-creating is seriously hampered by not being able to see anything further than 2 inches away without my glasses. It's always a surprise to see what I've done when I put them back on. No wonder I look like my grandma. Which reminds me:
How long about til eyebrows start to reappear? Mine seem to be stubbornly resistant to regrowth (unlike my hair). But using the red dot shampoo so close to the eyes doesn't seem like a good idea -- cinnamon stings!

Yayy well done Sally.... thats great news... I love skiing but haven't been for years.. don't think these wrattling old bones could stand it at the moment! Still have achy hips and knees, but think they are improving (or I am just getting used to them)... and going to try to join my son and husband at yoga classes soon... not sure if I will get up off of the floor at the end.. .but I'm gonna try!
KTK - no scan then... oh well just have to wait and see what/if I get through the post, perhaps nothing until yearly mammo on anniversary of diagnosis (thats what radiotherapy told me would happen). Feels odd not having lists of appointments to attend doesn't it. Good odd though!
