Cassie, could to hear you've had a lovely day! 🙂

 

I have been been using corsydol daily wash (I was using it before chemo) and touch wood haven't had any mouth issues. I think other threads also mentioned bicarbonate if soda miseducation with water as also being good so that might be worth a try! 🌟✨🦄🌈🌟🦄🦄

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Thank you all for the great response to my wig...makes me feel a little more confident!  

 

Feeling bit exhausted today, so now back upstairs, wig off & pjs on, may even get in bed soon!

 

Seems like we’re all having an ok day, Meesh is definitely doing a good job driving that train and getting us to the other side safely 🌟🚂🚂🌟🌟💪💪🌟🌟🦄🦄✨✨

Great wig Karen and love the scarf accessory 😊
Going to give the honey a go because my neutrophils were only just high enough for chem 2 should I start straight away?
Managed some turkey and veg fir my tea, nice to eat real food. Already have that hollow feeling back though. Going out for a stroll with hubby and then to bed.
Glad you had a nice time with friends and family Cassie. Rest up for a bit now though xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi lovely ladies.
Had a great couple of days with friends and family coming to visit. And they brought cakes. Now feeling very tired so bath and bed for me. Finished my injections today which is always a huge relief as I hate doing them. Still suffering with sore mouth. It's down one side at the moment towards the back and is making eating tricky. I have mouth wash from hospital but it doesn't seem to be doing much. I think corsodyl was probably more effective last time.

Karen you wig looks amazing! It looks so natural and great styling.

Hope everyone is doing ok

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Evening ladies wasn't it a lovely day today? I made my first visit into town since chemo and sat outside enjoying a take away coffee and muffin in the sun - felt like I had escaped from captivity!!

Chaffinch I know what you mean - I spent the first 4 days with my eyes closed as much as possible not really sleeping but trying to be as near unconcious as possible to avoid feeling the nausea and sickness. Meesh my acid got really bad and I am now on lansoprazole for gastric reflux (not sure how long I will have to take it for 🙄) smells are still a major issue and nausea is on and off. Looks like my chemo is going to be the equivalent of getting pregnant 6 times!!!

Day 5 of my injections and my bones are starting to tell me about it - hobbling quite a bit this evening as my hips are seizing up - has anyone else experienced this?

Karen - love the wig picture! I finally shared a picture of my pixie cut with my friends and am getting a little more used to it especially if I wear very bright lipstick - will have to see if the cold cap retains any of it though.

Wishing everyone a fab evening especially everyone who had their next round of chemo this week ♥️♥️♥️ Ruth

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karen, you look absolutely amazing, you'd honestly never know it's a wig! Thanks for sharing the picture! I really really need to get mine trimmed a bit. I'm wondering if mine would look better with a scarf or some clips, haven't had it on since I brought it home! Think I'm still in denial that I'll need it, but am losing quite a bit of hair now so think I need to seriously think about it! I think it's beginning to Matt, but not supposed to was it til monday 😕

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Your wig looks fab Karana I would never have guessed it wasn’t your hair. I find mine looks better with a headband or some clips in. Don’t know why it just seems to make it less obvious. Xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Yes it is!!  I really didn’t like it last week but with a scarf I think it looks better!  It was the one I got free thru the hospital, but is from a company called Frobishers xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Well done runnerbean, now drink lots and rest, and Sam make sure you do rest as we don’t want you back in hospital.!

Are you still feeling ok Shi, will they be keeping a closer eye on you this time?

Meesh glad your acid has subsided, I hate that feeling!

I’ve been sitting down in pub having a bit of a chat with some girlie friends but now feel a bit zapped so gonna chill out! I have been wearing my wig today though...what do you think?? Xx
