Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I prob won’t have a clue who’s who Sue...but reckon I will still watch it!!

My diet has been really strange...I’ve not ate much meat just the odd bit of chicken, this round I’m really struggling to fancy anything healthy, malteasers and revels are going down well!! My mum left me some homemade biscuits earlier so reckon I’ll be munching on them soon!! Xxx

I feel like 4 is much more of a landmark than cycle 3 was. I’m looking forward to having it over and done with!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Shi thanks
I should be ok for lunch then
I have struggled with meat the last cycle think it’s to do with the smell thing I have going on I cooked steak jacket potato and mushrooms last night but literally just ate the mushrooms
Tonight I did chicken roasties and veg but had the smallest amount of chicken and still left some

I have craved carbs never have I ate so many crumpets or so much bread, before treatment started was on slimming world and I didn’t tend to eat them. This cycle I have even just boiled rice or pasta and ate that on its own
When I was weighed on Wednesday I had lost 4.5 kg but still with in wright parameters for my current chemo mix . The weight loss wasn’t intentional

Roll on tomorrow get chemo 4 done and dusted and see what it brings x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi sue on the t currently because of steroids and antisickness meds botty got backed up, been better days 6&7, went onto fluconzole as mouth started going on day 5. I’ve been lucky on fec and touch wood on t, no loss of appetite, so nausea or sickness. Ive found sticking to what I fancy to eat (steak or lamb) at lunch and then whatever at night, pizza, pie chips beans, spaghetti Bol it’s been ok taste wise. The may girls did advise us to up the carbs on t, as t can give us 🌪botty. Buddyfan has got the t t-shirt so knows all about t on this thread. 😘😘😘💕💕✨✨shi xx

Loved that pic....who needs to be a skinny Wonder Woman Anyway!!

 

I also had clear nodes but Oncotype came back recommending I had chemo.....coz it’s so great and we love it...NOT!  Rach who needs a brain anyway!!

 

im starting to feel more normal again now...have put pjs on and OH has gone out to another pub for a couple of hours, maybe he will come back a bit happier...he did buy me a choc orange from the shop so I think he knows I’m angry with him!!

Evening ladies! 

 

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 💃🕺🏻💃👯👯‍♂️👯⭐️🌟🌈🌈⭐️⭐️🦄🕺🏻🕺🏻👯💃🌟🦄🕺🏻👯👯🕺🏻🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯🕺🏻🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯👯‍♂️👯🕺🏻👯‍♂️👯‍♂️💃

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I can’t unsee that!!

Can’t remember who asked about chemo if nodes aren’t involved. My nodes were clear but as I was grade 2b they checked my oncotype, it came back as smack bang mid risk so was given the option of chemo. It improves the odds of no return over 10 years from 85% to 90% onc said it wa really up to me and if it were his wife he’d not push for one way or the other. So I actually chose to have chemo, they’re going to check for a brain later 😁

Had my bloods done today but won’t know if I’m good to go until I go in. I’m up at 9.30 tomorrow, what time are the rest of you up?

Jellytot, great you found the stash of 👻👻👻. Good luck tomorrow. The boards are waxed🏄🏄🐱🏍🏄🏄, get those gold pants on.

Karana, I’m sort of glad you’re forced to rest! The antibiotics will sort you out, but it’s just a reminder to OH how fragile you are.
