Congratulations ladies who have done their last chemo today (this week ) - fingers crossed you have an easy ride with your last one .You will find radiotherapy a walk in the park in comparison if a bit boring ...

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

🤣😂🤣😂🤣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

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.

🤣😂🤣😂🤣Shi, I thought it was just me paranoid about getting germs from those hospital loos. I was also sceptical about how I could wash my hands really well with the cannula in my hand too, although I did give it a blooming good try!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I just got back from bloods they will call me if a problem.
I asked no bell at my unit they said they are not allowed it as some people find it upsetting as they will never get to ring the bell x
However they said they have got a hidden bell in the office which I can ring in private and have my photo taken with xx
