Tatyana - I quite like chemo brain too, it comes in handy at times 😉
This is will make you laugh ....
So I'm in the kitchen this evening washing dishes and it's dark outside. I look out the window whilst washing up and see a bald man wearing glasses just staring right at me! I absolutely **bleep** myself! Then I realise it's me I'm looking at!! 😂 I couldn't stop laughing! I thought I was looking at some strange bloke in my garden who looks like Greg Wallace. Good old chemo brain!
Anyway ladies night night

Shi - I wish you all the best with treatment lovey. What chemo are you having and have you had an op? So many questions! 😃 We've all had very similar and some very different experiences so don't let any of our stories put you off! Plus anything we can answer we'll happily do. So pleased Mai took you under her wing and introduced you :-)

Mai - You sound full of beans ! So lovely to hear you upbeat!! And what are you doing working woman - you should be resting 😉 As for treatment going to weekly, I feel like a lightweight switching but not got much option. Bonus is the nurses in chemo are hilarious and so caring so get to see more of them before it all comes to an end.
I tried going into work the other week and my boss said she doesn't want me in until chemo had stopped. Think my chemo brain may have something to do with it 😂 the last time I went in I typed my bank account number into my clocking in screen instead of my login - stared blankly at the 'ERROR' 'DENIED' message and couldn't figure out what I'd done wrong!!
Make sure you don't overdo things!!

Katie - I hadn't realised you and Rosie had weekly treatments too. I can't wait to switch, anything that's more manageable than what I've had will be a blessing! (Not wishing to put anyone off who's having treatment, we're all different) I had a portacath fitted after my first treatment and can really recommend it to anyone! It's so quick and easy to access for blood tests and have IV. My veins were rubbish to start with, also they only had one arm to work with because I'd had SNB. So glad your nearing the end of Rads, you've done so well :-)

Treehouse - Well done lady, you are through the other side!!! Hope your not feeling too groggy and get a comfy nights sleep and painkillers are doing a good job. Sending you big hugs 💜 xx

Tatyana, speaking of chemo brain: I decided to get back to work (from home) today and in my lunch break I fell asleep on the sofa, when I woke up I came and sat back at my desk and within seconds spilled a whole mug of herbal tea all over myself! Goodness sake! 🎭 🃏
Andi, glad you now have a more suitable treatment plan. I've had to have adjustments on the Docetaxol as it was totally kicking my ass at first. I had first dose at 100% then the last three have been 80% then 75%.
Shi, glad you are settling into the group. Have a bounce over to October starters as well. I sometimes pop onto other groups just to say hi and wish them all the best.

HI WolfEE, Mamoplasty was where they took it out and gave me a reduction and lift at the same time on the one that needed help. I had SB at same time while I was under in the op. Shi xx

Hi everyone, thanks very much for the warm welcome. Katie11, 5 rads away from finishing - yehhhh, how have you found the rads? Andi 71 - glad treatment gone better than you hoped for, i am just at the start of the chemo journey and luckily for me met Mai7 who has been my tip sparkle queen this last week - love you Mai7. I was already crazy before the chemo (as Mai7 will confirm) but think for me being crazy through this and a sprinkling of sparkles helps me deal with it. Love and Hugs xx
