Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Hello ladies - long time no post - but I feel I simply must put on here the news that last night I held my celebration party - to celebrate end of treatment - after chemo, surgery, radiotherapy and 18 herceptin treatments - I'm the other side.  In order to pay something back to this amazing charity Breat Cancer Care - I had donation pots strategically placed around the room.  I did a speech in which I praised this charity - saying without it, my "journey" would have been significantly more difficult - I met a wonderful group of ladies - we shared some amazing experiences together and we found support, hope and love from one another - accordingly, I wanted to pay something back - I'm proud to say at the end of the evening we emptied the pots - a total of £269 was raised - I am totally amazed! x

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

All good here. Busy too with visitors and part time work. Trying to get back to normality and enjoying the good weather.

Enjoy hearing how the rest of you are getting on. Proud of the walkers and runners doing it for charity. Well done. 

Take care and keep strong!

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Hi Shi and Mishy - yes all doing OK - I guess as most of us have returned to work and our "normal" lives, we're too tired to report on here!  We are in touch on facebook more regularly - why not join us over there?  I do try and come on here at least once a week!  I'm sorry to hear your boob is still playing you up Mishy - and good luck with your 1st mammo today - eeks - I had mine just before Easter - it was strangely nerve-racking - even more so waiting for the results.....  well done on having the genetics test (fingers crossed for you).  

 

I've got my final Herceptin injection a week today....!  Yippeee - end of active treatment for me!  (Just got to get my heart back on track and off the Ramipril!)   I'm really busy and absorbed in organising a huge family/friend celebration party for 14 July - I'm so excited and so is everyone around me!  I can't believe I've made it to the end of active treatment! 

 

I also did a 5K Race for Life "walk" last Sunday - raised an amazing £770 (plus £90 gift aid) for Cancer Research UK - it all felt so surreal whilst I was taking part - truly fantastic!

 

Love to all x

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Hi Mishy we have all been a bit busy by the looks of things. Glad you are doing well. So you decided to have the test, how did your son react? It’s a long wait for this one. I still hadn’t heard after 7 weeks so I phoned them. They called me back with my result a few hours later. I wasn’t surprised with my Mum’s history.
This is my second week back at work. I spent the whole day in yesterday. It’s going ok. Cardiologist and rehab this week. Herceptin and blood test next week. I still feel like I’m in the system.
Take care x x x

Re: May 2017 chemo starters

Here's an interesting article about BRACA mutations. WolfEE, this shows there are other known mutations which are not tested for and you must be in one of those categories: https://glennsabin.com/consumer-direct-genetic-testing-consumer-power-or-grief-ahead/
