Can’t wait 2 see you all later. Xx
Mishy18 sorry 2 hear your having panics. What day is your check up? I had some funny lumps and had to wait a while it turned out my implant had problems thank god but I had spent a week or more convinced it was something else. The surgeon will put you at ease so many things other than our worse fear that it can be. 🤞

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone. Sorry I haven't been on for a while. I'm back to a full workload and my hubby is commuting into London so life's a bit frantic. I think it's really important to get concerns checked out even if it isn't a problem. We all need peace of mind. X

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Thanks ladies for your kind messages, yeah the old anxiety monster came back to me a couple of times this week and took me into worry land tbh i know im there on Wed and will get a thorough examination so i will know whats what so to speak then, Trisha you sound like you are going through it atm it does also reassure me to know someone else has the orange peel type thing and its being associated with lymphodema or fluid build up but i do hope you get it resolved soon, sleep deprivation and early bird chorus seems to be the new normal too doesn't it i find when im struggling a few drops of lavender and chamomile essentials oils on pillow help and my hot milk with cinnamon and honey help me nod off started this during chemo days haha!
Treehouse good to hear from you hope you are well you sound like your recovery is going well you are definitely fit!!

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Hi ladies looks like lots of early birds today. I too am struggling with sleep. I really hope they check you out soon and can give you some reassurance. We must check everything. We are survivors.
Today is my final cardiac rehab level 3.
I can continue to level 4 but have to pay.
These sessions have given me so much strength and stamina after months of just battling to survive. I still creak and ache but I’m here and grateful. Moving seems to be the best thing for me.
Just wish I could sleep 💤

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Yeah Shi it does help thanks 😚😚 its like Jay says about the scar tissue after rads someone suggested breast lymphodema but i got a call today from bc clinic to say i will be seeing my bc surgeon next week to get it looked at and it made me panic!!! Im sure once im there i will be given a good old examination and hopefully it will be down to bloody rads!!! I just wish they would tell you in more detail about the different things that can happen so we wouldn't worry as much xx

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Lovely to hear hear that you're problem was caused by scar tissue Daffodil what a relief ti hear jay you are right about the anxiety it causes im panicing like mad about my boob now my app is a week today and wish it was here its the orange peel area im worried about its the other side of breast not where the original tumor was i know it can be a symptom of bc so im 💩 no matter how much i try to reassure myself that surely it couldn't be so soon after completing an arsenal of bloody treatment tell me im being rediculous ladies 😨

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Such a relief Daffodil - I think the scar tissue (which no one really warns you about before having the treatment) causes us quite a lot of anxiety!  Great news on the clear mammogram too.  Onwards and upwards! xx

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

That's great news Daffodil x

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Good news. Ultrasound done on swelling near mastectomy site. Apparently likely scar tissue so nothing to worry about. Also mammogram of remaining breast clear.

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Herceptin no 17 done. Just having the Zolendronic now. Been Oncology clinic and am to keep off the Anastrazole til had a CT scan get to bottom of my pains. Said be within 2 weeks. Being rushed thru to see Lymphodema clinic. Not happy with Breast swelling.

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

I agree Shi - listening to a child's laughter is a real tonic - that's the best bit about my job working in school - that and watching their innocent play especially this time of year on the school field - just lovely x

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Ahh ladies talking of babies - I've met my great niece today for the first time and she's sooo gorgeous!  Just 3 months old and a bundle of sheer joy!  My nephew and his wife organised a family meal (20 of us) at a local Harvester to welcome her to the family and we all had a really fab time - and the weather, WOW what a bonus! 

 

This time last year was the same Nephew's wedding day - just before I started treatment! - can't believe where that year has gone in one way!! 

 

Two more weddings this year - Niece in September and another Nephew in October - so exciting!
