Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Reboot that must be so tough! Sorry to hear thst this blight has interrupted your maternity leave but hope that you are feeling ok and enjoying snuggles with your baby.

Jencat its good to see you. I am sensitive to smells and noise after treatment and also eat plainish foods. I havent cold capped but CherryB has and i know she wsshes her hair gently in a bowl a couple of times a week. Hope you are feeling ok xc

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Sorry ladies have had such a busy day I've only now managed to try & read all the posts to catch up!! 

 

Ive had lumpectomy with clear margins and nodes, stage 3 tho so oncotype test done, came back at 27 but they still decided I needed chemo and rads then tamoxifen!! 

 

Shi I have decided to have hair shaved at my Big Pink day tomorrow...this has upset a few people as they aren't sure they can handle it....I understand but I think although very scary it may help me accept it better!!  I've already sold over £300 in raffle tickets and another £400 through donations....very pleased!!  Also had my wig trimmed this eve so bit happier with that!

 

right I now need to try get some sleep so I don't look like a pink zombie tomorrow!! 

 

Night 🦄✨✨🌟🌟💫💫🦄

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I think it's harder for those around us to deal with it as they are powerless to help. This is certainly true in my case, I often feel I have to keep insanely positive to support them !
This is why the forum is so valuable !
Sweet dreams ladies xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Gosh liz you have had a busy day x
Good luck for tomorrow

I have a low tolerance level of crying people at the moment if I don’t need to cry I don’t want them to it’s not positive or helpful x
I am off to bed shortly so hope everyone sleeps well x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

No worries Shi, I wasn’t exactly clear 🙂 I miss my essential oils but don’t want to use them around the little one until she’s 6 months old when it’s generally deemed safe. I was diagnosed in June, had surgery in July, baby was born in August (thankfully at full term) and chemo started at end of Sept. Oh, and our son started school too! To be honest, I'd rather be busy and distracted but it is tiring some days.

I’m so looking forward to the real Dom Perignon when all this is over 🍾 🥂

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi all I’m Liz I live in Cheltenham and I’m 50. Grew up in North Wales, lived in Chester for a year and moved here 30 years ago almost to the day! I’m er+ pr+ and her2+ . Had lumpectomy 22cm tumour, clear margins no node involvement. Chemo, rads, Herceptin and tablets for me. One round of six FEC done. Loving the Cilla introductions tonight. Took some catching up with after a day at work and an evening baking for Wear it Pink tomorrow. I’m utterly shattered my fingers and lips are tingling again seems to be tiredness related. Off to bed byes in a minute. Typically everything I touched at work wasn’t straightforward hopefully tomorrow better, want some fun. Was good catching up with everyone. Why do some of my friends and colleagues cry when I tell them what’s been going on but I am yet to shed a tear. Am I weird...Probably best to leave that unanswered!
Glad those new starters are coping on the whole, we are all gently chugging along on this strange old train each day closer to good health. Sleep well all xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Loving being home thanks jencat clipped my hair to a no 4 this morning, it’s strange because you forget your hair isn’t their anymore and when you get dressed and you don’t have your hair to yank out when you put your tops on is strange. K sorry I thought your baby was 6 months not 8 weeks, were you diagnosed during or after? Yes girls we do have a choo choo with tables with bottles of champers or whatever you want when we celebrate when we are all through🍾🍾🥂🥂😘💕💕✨✨shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi Shi, yes I'm on fec. Perhaps the smell is just me or something has gone off in the fridge,lol! Pee normal now, was quite soon after chemo as I like my cuppa so always needing a wee! Glad to hear 60 is the new 40, although no excuses for me now for needing extra naps! Smiley Happy

How are you Shi? Bet you're really enjoying being back home x

Hope you're ok K, must be so hard doing all this with a small baby x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Thank you Mishy, Meesh and Shi x My little one’s only 8 weeks old so thankfully doesn’t know any different and is still wonderfully easy at this age 🙂And of course everyone wants an excuse for a cuddle 😂

I’m intrigued that you don’t need a full node clearance Mishy, it was my surgeon who said it’d happen and then my oncologist who couldn’t understand why it was necessary if I’m doing chemo and rads to blitz it all. I’ll let them fight it out and keep asking all the questions!
Loving the 🦄 and ✨ ladies xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi K, gosh that sounds Tough! Good job you have good support round you. I've found that sometimes it comes from surprising places. Sending you some of Cassie's 🦄🦄🦄🦄hugs and Shi's sparkles ✨✨✨🌟🌈✨🌟🌈

 

Jencat, glad you're doing ok and snoozing when you need to.

 

Mishy, nice to hear from those further on in their journey, so many of us on here have never posted on a forum or used Facebook either! So you're not alone in that either!
