Ruth, how many do you have to do?
Sue, I usually have a chat with onco nurse on day of chemo just prior to chemo. When I asked onco about my increasing nausea on each chemo day she said to tell onc nurse and they would give me more tablets.
Hi Karen, glad you managed to get a doc appointment shame it's not until Friday though! The onc has said I will see her again end of Jan when I've finished treatment, can't wait for that appointment 😂 I'm not really sure what the boosters are for and I asked 3 times! She just kept saying that as I was handling chemo well and because I was young they wanted to give me 5 boosters to the tumour site as on top of the 15 rads to the whole boob as a further preventative measure. I wish they'd offered me a spa voucher that would've felt much more like a treat for all my hard work than more bloody rads! 😂 Will be interesting to see what they say to you tomorrow.
Ruth, good luck with the injection. You can do it, you're made of strong stuff. I've been trying to have liver once a week and also steak or beef too. I'll make sure the train 🚂 is warm for you tomorrow make sure to wave when you're boarding! ✨💫💫🌈🌟💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻🌈🌟🕺🏻🦄✨💫🦄
Evening ladies...I’ve missed a lot this afternoon!!
Ali sounds a lot of treatment to me...hope u manage to rest this eve and not too many SE
Meesh, sounds like u didn’t have much fun with the Onc, I don’t see mine now until January!! I’ve got a meeting with Radiotherapy doc tomorrow so will see what they’ve got to say!! I’m not sure what the boosters are for??
I waited all day for docs to call me back, finally heard back from the receptionist after chasing them to be told I can see doc on Friday...they obv not that worried about me!!
OH is moaning about being tired today....FFS!
Ali, well done on first t chemo, wow 5.5 hours! I thought 3 hours with the cold cap was bad enough! Rest up now and I hope you don't suffer too many SEs.
Buddyfan, glad you're getting yourself sorted and a bonus if you can get an ongoing condition sorted too. It does make you wonder sometimes why they don't do some of these tests if you have been suffering long term with something.
Sue, sorry to hear you're experiencing that smell again. Perhaps some of Shi's thieves oil on a hanky so you can sniff that instead of the bad smell would work. I asked onco about the dissolvable steroids vs tablet form and she didn't have an answer.
Shi, you crazy lady I bet you're good at getting what you want so stamp those diva feet! 😘😘
I’m home now, after having ultrasound and with antibiotics for uti. My urine dip flagged up for all infection markers and it is susceptible to this new antibiotic. The ultrasound of bladder and kidneys showed a very, very full bladder, abnormally so, too big to fit on screen, possibly 2litres! Also showed ‘debris’. After sending me to loo, it had about 1litre showing that I’m not emptying bladder. They said it could have been creeping up and could be the cause of my uti over last two years. Ha, could also explain my pod. Maybe something good will come out of all this. I’ve got to assess how much I drink and pass and go in tomorrow for an urologist’s apt. Or before, if I’m in pain or stop passing urine. There’s definitely ‘debris’ in my wee-think clotted blood. (tmi???? Forewarned is forearmed).🎢🚽🎢🚽🎢🚽 Watch that pan ladies.
My bloods showed neutrophils of 34, again THIRYFOUR, so I definitely have spare to share today! 👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻
Hope everyone had an ok day today, I haven’t caught up with the chats yet. Anyone on that 🏥🚂 with me tomorrow?
Thanks Jellytot re tip on eye drops, I might try some of them.
Ladies, I know I go on about the yoga thing, but I've found that it does help breakdown the scar tissue. 🙂
My eyes have felt sore the last couple of days like they're over tired I wonder if that's dry eyes too. I might mention that when I go for chemo next week. I had wle my bc was grade 2 stage 1 no nodes involved. I think I had quite a bit of dcis so maybe that's why I'm getting the extra rads.
