Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

hi Jencat - yes I sent mine in prior to the appt as well, but they went thru that again and pushed further - trying to remember how many children my cousins children in australia had (the one's I have never met and don't hear from !) was a bit of a challenge!

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

Evening ladies. Kicking myself that I missed FaceTime. I had a hospital boo boo on Monday. I basically turned up at wrong hospital!!! It was a rescheduled app and they switched hospitals. I never noticed and neither did they. Doh! Got seen anyway but had to wait longer. Daddy took me to appoint then dragged me shopping so by the time I got home it was nearly 5pm, I thought about face timing but thought idve missed you. Mighta known you would still be chatting/drinking x
Well that's me booked back in same ward as a fortnight ago!
Everyone please cross your fingers and do good luck dances for me, for clear margins PLEASE xxx.
Hopefully should get out tomorrow. Loved the pictures of you all. Soo nice to see what you look like 😊 Warriors xxx

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

Thanks very much Lesley for the info. Glad they do the blood test there, wondered if it might be another hospital visit! I had to fill in a form about parents etc and send it to them before tomorrow's visit, so already had to have a bit of a think about relatives xx

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

hi Jencat

saw the consultant - was there about 30 mins (I think), blood test was done there and then.

He asked about relatives - parents siblings and their children and their children - which was a bit of a challenge - probably worth having a think about them in advance - boys vs girl numbers and any occurence of cancer anywhere

 

I found it quite casual and informal - was made to feel very at ease and he was generally very helpful about other none generic cancer questions I had.

 

 

FMB- had a great catch up with my son - it was soooooo lovely!

 

Absolutely cream crackered now after a day at the ExCel - back again tomorrow 😫 ....... I'll sleep tonight!

Hi Lesley, I noticed that you're TN and went to Guy's for genetic testing. I've got an apointment there tomorrow, and hope you don't mind me asking, but just wondered how long you were there for and what the meeting involved. Did you have a blood test whilst you were there? Thanks  xx

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

Hello everyone, what wonderful photos. I thought of you all, including Bythesea on FaceTime, yesterday and I am delighted there will be a summer opportunity. I would love to join you and say thank you in person for all the friendship, support, humour and listening.

 

Today was my pre-chemo assessment and I am delighted to say that I am all set for the final and 8th round on Thursday morning despite some borderline bloods. I am right on the edge with my neutropils, but they're happy for me to go ahead as it is the last go and they think I should recover a bit between now and Thursday. Phew. Haemoglobin is also a bit rubbish, so spinach for supper for me. I am wrung out now, but just thrilled to be able to keep to schedule, especially with surgery booked in for 16 April.

 

How is everyone doing? Bythesea, do you have a clearer idea of next steps now? And Anadan, how are you managing? Harryfiddler, we had some sun (now gone) but I suspect you'd laugh if you saw passes for 'sun' in March in SW London. JC, Carole, Otter, FM and Lesley - hope you're well too? xx

Here you go ladies - raising a glass ..... or two 😇 to all the beautiful November heros

We sat down at 1pm and before we knew it it was nearly 5pm .... another met up in the summer I think and hopefully we can get a few more along who have finished treatment

Couldn't have got this far without you all

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

Happy belated Mothers Day ladies!

I hope you have all been spoilt rotten today. I am now finally relaxing 🍸 waiting for my Sunday roast.

I am afraid that I will not be able to make tomorrow's lunch date, I myself am now fine, but I am very sad to say that I lost my father-in-law on Friday evening to secondary prostate cancer and I am spending tomorrow with my OH helping out. I hope you all have a fun time and hopefully I will make the next get together.

Re: November 2017 Chemo Starters

Fab - FMB - I'm looking forward to meeting up in person too!

 

 

Otter are you still ok tomorrow?

 

Carole - how are you feeling?  would be lovely to see you if you feel able, but understand if the T is still getting the better of you!!  Pesky stuff!

 

FMB, I'd get them to do the washing up at least .... and they do say it's the thought that counts!
