Karen, looks like our journey continues to be similar with antibiotics for us in cycle4! Good job you got yourself checked out, hope you start to feel better soon 😘😘🤗🤗🤗although I've still not taken mine yet. Rash is still the same, I never suffered with spots but this looks like acne 😳
Jellytot, that photo is 😳🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
Buddy, I'm having chemo because the oncotype test came back at the top end of intermediate and so was advised to have it. I was also told that by having it I would have 90% chance of it not returning not sure what the % was if I didn't have it.
Shi, hope you're doing ok here's a dance for you to get you back on your feet 💃🕺🏻💃👯👯♂️👯⭐️🌟🌈🌈⭐️⭐️🦄🕺🏻🕺🏻👯💃🌟🦄🕺🏻👯👯🕺🏻🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯🕺🏻🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯👯♂️👯🕺🏻👯♂️👯♂️💃
Afternoon ladies....temp was 39.9 this morning so I’ve been to hospitals, bloods taken and neutrophils were fine but trace of a uti and they don’t want my cough to get to chest so have been given antibiotics! I’m now home but feel totally zapped...so gonna go in hibernation.....think OH may have a nervous breakdown before the day is out....he’s rubbish when things go wrong!!
glad everyone else is doing ok xxxxx
thanks to all you dear ladies for your words of wisdom, check up on Tuesday for my last FEC - I'll ask them about the alcoholic T at the same time!!
The Unit know I drive myself at the moment so I am sure they would give me the heads up!!
Shi - you should know me by now ... Little Miss Independent!!
love to you all and all the best for the Christmas holiday xx
Ruth, I'm also a bit🤔 😳😳😳😳😳about not having any further scans, even though I had no node involvement and would've thought they would've done some sort of check after chemo and rads to make sure that it really is gone.
🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂Karen, I know the feeling. I love my folks to bits but my mum drives me nuts if we spend too much time together. Her and my sister are coming to see me tomorrow and I cant wait to see them. It's the first time She's been here since I started chemo so I know she'll Insist on cleaning the house from top to bottom and fussing (even though I'm going to clean it today).
Just read the instructions on my antibiotic cream and have realised I haven't been using enough cream 🙄
Morning ladies....Meesh I wld rather pick my own toenails off than go stay with my parents....they wld get in a right panic!! I slept ok and my nose has stopped running but I’ve got a cough....gonna take my temp in a minute usually wait 15 mins after I get up as bury my head under duvet so don’t get true reading!!
Hope everyone one has a good day xxxx
Karen, Sue howre you both feeling this morning? Hope your not suffering too much with your colds and coughs. Karen, do keep an eye on that temp 🌡Try and take it easy today and keep yourself warm. Could you stay with your folks for a couple of days to get some tlc and to keep warm? A drafty flat when you have a cold is probably not a good combination! ⭐️🌈🦄🌟🌟🦄⭐️⭐️🌈🌟✨💫✨🦄🌈⭐️⭐️🦄🌟✨💫
Morning ladies! Hope everyone slept well, Runnerbean looks like you were up in early hours.
I had initial mammogram, biopsy and ultrasound, then op. Since then I had a heart echocardiogram and ultrasound type thing prior to chemo as fec can also affect the heart I think. Not had anything else, my nodes were clear s maybe that's why.
I also suffered with a dry nose last cycle and had a bit of blood but no real nose bleed. I stuck some coconut oil up there which seemed to do the trick.
Working again today, need to make up for the 2 hours I was at the hospital yesterday. Going to see the Druid later for my reiki😊 Rash is looking marginally better so going to carry on with the cream and antihistamine today and see what happens.
Hope you've all got good days planned. 😊
I was so excited to see Santa I heard him coming from the bottom of the road so by the time he got by mine i had my hat and coat on so I could stand on the drive and wave
hair loss for me cycle 1 lost lady hair
cycle 2 .. day 4 hair started to shed and was bald by day 6 so once it started to go it was rapid but my hair was shaved to number 2 so no long bits hanging on
Wishing evryone a restful night xxx
Evening ladies....sorry thought I posted earlier but didn’t work!!
managed to get some shopping done although kept having to blow my nose and take my hat off!! Not feeling too bad so think it’s just a common cold but keeping an eye on my temp! Feel a bit shivery now but I think it’s just because I’m cold....now in bed with heated blanket on!!
Meesh hope the rash eases and you don’t need antibiotics 😱
Sue...hope ur cough improves and you gave Santa a big wave from us all!!
I now can’t remember what’s happening with everyone else....bloody stupid chemo brain 😱😱🤣🤣
Love to you all anyway 😘😘😘
Sue, lucky you I haven't seen a santa like hat since I was a kid!
Buddy, I think hair loss can be anywhere from day 14 to 21. I saw mine start on hairwash on day 21 of first cycle and then during first week of second cycle. Since then it's been hair wash on day 14 that I've seen the most hairloss.
