Nice one JC
Is that you finished then or do you go onto Rads?
I've just had a confirmation call re last pre chemo check and last chemo - I still think it is bad that you have to chase these things!
Wow Bythesea, that has leapt out from behind a hedge on you hasn't it???
We will all be here to hold your hand!
Were you at the LGFB session this week - should add to the Glam look - you go rock it hun!!
I'm trying to get healthy with all my messings about - I cook 99% of all meals from scratch but there's a lot of rubbish in breads and stuff so I want to try and go self sufficient???
I am also going to try making 'milk' from tiger nuts ..... I've tried almond and soya milk and I don't like it, so I thought I would give the tigers a go!
Have a lovely evening with your loved ones tonight - I will be saving my snuggling for the weekend!
I'm feeling much better today - bones are still aching but not as bad as yesterday.
I'm trying to make some ciabatta bread - yesterday's attempts were a disaster - Mr Hollywood had the wrong ingredient amounts on his website and today my food processor has stopped working.
Quick trip to John Lewis and I'll be attempting another batch today 👩🏻🍳 .... I'll let you know how I get on!
Bythesea, I have two more, one tomorrow, the last one on Friday. I had a break today, and I’m scared now this horrible pain will come back 😱
I had to cancel my LGFB because I had an infection I’ve moved it to April, after chemo, to make sure I can make it : and now there’s something to look forward to xx
I’ve noticed we’re living a celebrity life 😂😂:
- shave like Sinead O’Connor / Carla Delavigne
- shine like Kojak
- bathe like W Houston
you are all putting me to shame with your pancakes - we are having ours on Friday when me and the OH get together with syprup and ice cream!
Are we allowed to give up Chemo for Lent??
Otter - if I were you, I'd have a nice hot bath and use the lemons meant for your pancakes in a hot toddy instead - plenty of whisky! Should go down a treat with the cocaine! You wild child you!
My pelvis crush has continued thru the day and my temp is all over the place ... and I thought I was doing so well!
First, a huge and gentle hug for Anadan. I am so sorry that you're in such pain. It is just the most tiring, wearing and difficult symptom. I wish you a more peaceful time whether it be morphine (or cocaine!) induced, so you can get some rest and respite from feeling wretched. When is your next chemo?
I am thrilled that there is the possibility of a get together, but less thrilled than I can't make it. Unfortunately it is three days before chemo number 8 (assuming I stay on schedule) which is also my last one, so I probably ought not to be out counting my chemo chickens before they have hatched and I have completed the course. I also have a longstanding commitment to speak at a conference at City Hall so will be across and down the river waving to you Prosecco peeps and wishing I could join you. Another time I hope.
Like Otter, I've been at the hospital this morning and got the all clear for chemo number 6 on Thursday. Paclitaxel part 2 is on. Also like Otter, I am using codeine a bit, but not cocaine! Who else is scheduled for this week? I am also booked in for my pre-surgery consultation at the beginning of March which has made the next step v. real.
I've heard only brilliant things about Moving Forward courses and definitely intend to do one when I am finally in a position to move forward or move anywhere after surgery and radiotherapy. I think (know) I will find anxiety and worry about recurrence a challenge so I will take whatever I can get in terms of help/support.
I met someone last week who had BC five years ago and she told me that she is still in touch with several of the women she met via her monthly chemotherapy thread. She was thrilled to know that the threads continue and are as helpful/supportive/fun/encouraging as she found them.
Off to make my batter and ruin my floor/ceiling soon. Toodlepip. xx
Chemo brain I'm sure I wrote codine but cocaine might work better 🤗🤗🤗🤗
Hospital appointment went ok got go ahead for Thursday oncologist was thinking of not going ahead at all as I've been getting increased neuropathy but decided es it could be linked to my fibromyalgia not the chemo that we would go ahead. As I don't want to have gone through all this an not finish otherwise l would always be wondering if I might get it back somewhere else
They are doing a Moving forward course here in October so I've been booked on by my BCN as its run at the hospital
Not sure if I will do pancakes today will see how I feel later as got soaking wet on way back from hospital so feeling very cold and achy
link to whats available
We will need to keep an eye on Otter during lunch, if she keeps nipping to the loo we know why!!!!
Pains are manageable, I'm getting off easy. And as you say, at least it means that the injections are working!
The moving forward courses sound good - how do they normally promote them?
I do worry about ladies who don't know about half of the things that are around and forums like this to get you thru it all!
Yes wet and windy here 🌧🌧🍃🍃💨💨
Hope you pain eases soon Lesley I must admit Ive been having to take the maximum amount of cocaine I can to get through the injections
just going to get ready for a fun morning waiting around at hospital as never run on time
Hope you all have a good day snuggle up on sofa if you can
my last injection last night - thank goodness... but was woken up this morning by some seriously strong pelvis pain. Nothing like what Anadan is dealing with, but prompted a couple of paracetamols .... which means its bad!
Sending everyone hugs this blowy, cold morning
Hey Anadan, big hugs from Australia. Thank goodness they're looking after you. You'll get through this. Take the drugs, sleep, and swear a lot.
oh anadan ......... sending hugs
from ibruprofen to morphine.... your unit need to work the middle ground a bit.
keep your fluids up and make sure you have people around you to look after you
Also got mine cream from Amazon makes feet nice and soft as I cover them then put cotton socks on
12th should be ok for me too 🍸
Been signed off for another 3 months as doctor thinks I will need time to recover after trestreat finishes but might have to go back before then as I will hit half pay at end of March so will depend if we can manage.
I've been slathering on the udder cream too - got mine on Amazon - it definitely helps, but I can tell when I forget!
Good to see you onboard for the Prosecco fuelled meet up Carole!
