October 2017 Chemo Starters

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

2 more back safely today, well done girls! Sue I’m lying in bed really wanting a Chinese now 🥡Really do need to cut down on my eating very soon. Didn’t want to tempt fate by saying it but I really haven’t found the side effects to bad this time. Don’t know if it’s because it was the last one or my body has just got more used to it but I even managed to work for a few hours today which is normally unheard of in the first week after chemo. Might even go shopping tomorrow, I’m thinking of trying on the vests with support in M&S so I don’t have to wear a bra through Rads. I’m only a B cup so hopefully it would be enough support for me though I’m guessing they may not be much use for the more well endowed ladies xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Just realised why I feel rough, forgotten to put my sea bands on 🙄. They’re on now and I’m tucked up in bed with a bowl by my side which hopefully I won’t need 🤢.
Night all thanks for your love and support today ❤️✨💪

Feeling pretty rough now, just taken nighttime dose of Ondansetron and will head to bed soon.
OH has been reading short stories from a book called Bloody Scotland that our son bought between us for Christmas. What a difference a week makes, this time last week he was barely speaking to me. Men, can’t live with them can’t live without them 🙄

Karen, it just shows how worried he's been all along I reckon and just tried to stuck his head in the sand! 

 

Right ladies, we're going to have to really keep a close eye on this 👨🏻‍✈️for Ruth, we'll need to find something extra special for tomorrow! This is just not a good enough from him he's being really naughty!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you Ruth x

Liz, great pictures! I hope you’re not feeling too bad tonight x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Love the pictures ladies ♥️💕 Hope you both sleep OK tonight. Has definitely got me thinking about my final chemo outfit 😁 And as there is no bell am def going to have to think up an exit song to dance out of the unit to!!
However before I get ahead of myself bloods are crap s chemo 5 might not even go ahead tomorrow at this rate!! They are going to take bloods again tomorrow at the unit just in case they have crept across the threshold.
Meesh that driver is clearly not understanding the full gravity of his situation!! It won't be just a rhino going down his 👖Tomorrow if my third chemoin a row is delayed!!!!
Runnerbean glad to hear you are feeling better after your beauty sleep. Maybe I can just sleep for two more chemos? Wake me up when it is all over 😉
I do like the idea of a bit of glam for rads - although nothing metallic lol
♥️♥️💕💕 to everyone

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Sorry yes I’m back...chemo brain already kicked in and I couldn’t find my iPad....it was in my handbag!!

 

All done...no bell so danced my way out of the unit and skipped down the corridor...prob just looked like I needed a wee lol 😂 glad I don’t have to do that again!  Celebrated with a mc Donald’s which I didn’t really enjoy!!

 

Hate this evening after chemo...get quite panicky about how I’ll im gonna feel, sending my brain good mantras  so my body’s kind to me!?

 

i put a post on fb and had 146 likes and 47 comments....I think it’s not only me that’s happy it was last chemo!!

 

Hope everyone else is ok 😘😘😘

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I’m finally back, 🛎 was well and truly rung! I even got a certificate, that was a surprise and stopped me from crying when everyone applauded and wished me well.
Was delayed 2 hours, began to wonder if they had forgotten me!
Well done Karen, shame you don’t have a bell but hope you enjoyed Macdonalds x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

For the two ops, they had complimentary wipes use could use on the equipment. i used to go around everything, even my phone and tablet.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Guess that’s another positive to Hickman line then 🤣🤣 can wash hands properly and they got lots of hand gel about xxx
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

🤣😂🤣😂🤣Jellytot that made me laugh. The toilet in our unit was really high so hovering was never an option! I always had cannula in forearm actually but the little tubes used to hang down and get in way of hand.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Me too with the loos, so I hover and twice have managed to wee on myself and the floor....
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I preferred them to put the cannulas in my wrist as then I had my hand free for washing. Always took hand gel anyway for when washing was a bit awkward. It was worse when I was admitted to hospital as toilet was shared with 3 other women. All were in due to some kind of infection and I didn't want to catch anything. Plus when the cleaners came there was no way they were in there long enough to clean that toilet properly. I wouldn't do my own toilet in that time let alone the sink floor and fill the dispensers up.
