Oh wow Reddi we are all Ken Dodd lookalikies!
Shi mine is definately not as straight as before but not really curly either..but more like an old lady's waves really... not the best look.. I just need the blue rinse and I'm sorted.. I have the aches and pains to go with it.
CDC - sounds like you had a lovely break. I am looking forward to trying swimming, even got my swimsuit out today, just need a swimming knocker to put it in,, must get mother onto that. I think I may struggle with breaststroke too as my knees hurt. Its strange you are getting the aches too and have only really just begun with the Tamoxifen. I do wonder if its partly the chemo hangover as I've read similar reports on these forums with ladies sufferings the same. I've had another bash at the fitness DVD for breast surgery and it does seem to help, definatel finding my neck and shoulder is stiff on the surgery side so hopefully these exercises may help relieve it. It may also be connected to the pain in my back as I am compensating for the poor side?
CDC my son doesn't go back to college until Monday, and he's been off since about 13th December!! I think my daughter was glad to see her friends too (and her boyfriend!!), I think they need someone their age to chat to after a while, I haven't a clue what my daughter is talking about half the time... I feel so old!! you are so lucky your hair is the same colour as before, I am totally different.. the new me I guess. Sounds like you still have some questions to ask before the big op but its definately all coming together and will be good to get it overwith won't it. I have a friend who is having a DIEP next week (I think thats tummy). She had BC about 3 years ago, had inplant which rejected and then remained flat until now... she's very excited about getting it all sorted out, says it feels like the last piece of the puzzle!! She is in London too.

Morning All, just wanted to touch base with you all and see how things are going. I'm still achey, hips, bottom, thighs and feet (oh and shoulders and neck too sometimes).. not sure whats the main cause, chemo or tamox but hoping to see some improvement soon.. feel so old!
RedRose - how are you doing? Now you can say you are getting married this year!!! woo hoo..
Anybody had a first haircut yet? I am thinking of having a small trim to get rid of the whispy end bits but am reluctant to let any go as yet.. not sure what to do?
My daughter went back to school today, really miss her already and my son is back on Monday so its all back to the grindstone for us... Christmas tree down.. found that hard.. the what if I don't see it again thoughts came whoosing back... had to fight them down!

Thanks for thinking of me and my Mum Shi. I also feel like we are ‘sharing the day’ with my Dad on his anniversary, This year we took some flowers from from the garden he loved to add to the wooden heart on his apple tree. I’m glad I shared the day with my Mum. Xxx
