Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Clairebell good luck for today 🛎🛎🛎 Karana I’m glad you managed to talk to your other half, men are not very good at telling us what they are feeling and need forcing into telling us sometimes. Sue hope your SE ease off today and you are feeling better after yesterday’s trauma. I’m going to have a quiet day today and then I have my Rads planning meeting tomorrow so hopefully I will have my dates for the next stage then. Hope you all have a good day xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Buddy he did say that I’ve never actually asked him how he’s coping and I’m probably a bit guilty about that....men are def strange creatures and I don’t think we will ever be able to suss them out!! Think the best way to clean nail beds would be to rub hands with a gentle cleansing soap or showe gel and then soak them in a small bowl of warm water....then use ur almond oil...you cld even put some of the almond oil in the bowl of water too x
I was gonna attempt a yoga class this morning but I’m still quite achy from injections so may try next week...I’m also a bit worried about 💨 😂

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karana, great that you sorted the situation. If you’re having 🥓🥓🥓 it sounds like the cumulative effect of extreme tiredness carries on when 🥓🥓🥓 are finished. OH needs to be prepared for that, otherwise he will think you should be better. Ask him to just talk to you if he’s worried, or better still give him MacMillan’s number. On a different note, Karina, what’s the most gentle way of soaking hands to clean nails? I don’t want to strain the nail bed. Shi, 🤣😂🤣😂 another one to add to the list of se, I hope Jellytot appreciated it. A real laugh out loud moment. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 Dizzie, if yoga is anything like pilates you will💨💨💨. I’ve done it a number of times, as have others. Sometimes you can get away with it but once I let rip for so long everyone was 🤣😂🤣😂🤣

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I have a question for the yoga ladies. I do fancy trying a class but I’m right worried I’m gonna 💨💨💨 all the way through. Can anyone allay my fears 😳?

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning all, I was also worried about you last night Karen. Glad you’ve managed to talk to OH. The busy life of running a pub can’t help. You will be able to spend more time together relaxing when you leave x
Jelly tot your ears must be burning, did make me laugh though. Hope you’re doing ok after chemo last week x
Enjoy your walk and shop Meesh x
Take it easy today Sue and watch how much you swing that iron. I’m gradually making a dent in my ironing pile. We have way too many clothes because we are real charity shop bargain hunters. Every time I see something good quality and nearly new at a good price that I like I can’t resist.
Claire, blow your whistle with pride, we will celebrate with you later 💕
Hope everyone has a good day, I have Pilates later at Maggie’s 😊

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Shi, I also loved your typo made me laugh so much OH asked what I was laughing at! 

 

Rach, that's another great frank turner song. I downloaded his album after your last post and forgot about it so I'm going to listen to that while I walk today. Thanks for reminding me!

 

Karen, enjoy your day out and order those uggs you deserve them!

 

Sue take it easy today, you had quite a day yesterday.

 

Sending 🦄🤗to everyone! Hope you all have good days with manageable SEs 💫⚡️✨🌟⭐️✨⚡️⚡️🌈🦄🌈🦄🌈🦄👅🐧👅🐧

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Think we are going out for lunch today somewhere, maybe Horning? Haven’t ordered the uggs yet but think I will! My sandals turned up yesterday but although I ordered 2 different colours they almost looked the same, but managed to sell a pair to a friend so all worked out well!

I loved the typo for jelly Shi..made me giggle!!

Sue hopefully today will be more comfortable for you 😘

I’m now having a toasted hot cross bun....m&s Bradley apple ones are the best....well it is nearly Easter!! I think I may turn into a weeble!!!!!

Sue, hope you're feeling ok after yesterday.

 

Rach, hope you're managing SEs after chemo this week.

 

Karen, good job on the chat with OH yesterday, blooming men they're just so rubbish with the touchy feely stuff aren't they?

 

Shi, another good tune! We'll be 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻In the 🚂 today. I'm planning on walking into town today  but will get the bus back as it's about 4 miles. Although after last nights programme perhaps I'd be better doing a quick 10 min walk and drive there and then do another 10 min dash round the shops 😂

Karana, so pleased you’ve had a good chat with oh and been able to reach him and get him to start understanding just how tough the chemo journey is as well as the entire journey.

Morning ladies....requested tunes uploaded!

Can’t believe I typed a really long post last night then it deleted...just sums up how yesterday went! Anyway to cut long story short I had a serious chat with OH and made him see what a nasty **bleep** he can be, he did admit it was his way with dealing with it and if he can convince himself I’m fine (and me) then he though5 I would be! He was very upset and said he’s really struggling but told him that he can’t deal with it this way!! We ended up going to Cromer and taking the dog for a very fresh walk and got some chips. I’ve still not totally forgiven him yet!! And Meesh there’s gonna be no making up sex yet so he WONT be getting his end away, but will take on board your advise 😱I managed to do a couple of friends nails yesterday and def felt a lot better! Didn’t have a great nights sleep but I was so cold I think that kept waking me!!

Only 1 more injection to do....oh and I made OH watch while I done yesterday’s injection and he’s really needle phobic!

Sue, how you feeling this morning....yesterday sounded a bit traumatic but at least that’s another thing ticked off!!

Hope everyone else is ok, good luck claire Bell...go blow that whistle!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Oh you girls do make me laugh...!
Shi.... great typo but not sure Jelly Tots will be amused! Mind you we all are quite good at seeing the funny side aren't we!
I'm on train for chemo 8 today. Trying to be pleased but excitement not really an emotion I associate with chemo day! I will be blowing my whistle! Don't think there is a 🔔 at the Marsden!
Have a good one everyone, SE permitting - thinking of you Cassie as you prepare for op. It's ok you know these surgeons Are really excellent! Xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karen i hope you are feeling better today after last night i think you have been fab through your chemo maybe too fab to the point where your OH thinks its not as bad as it actually really is but that's because you are 💪💪💪 i agree with the ladies you should def get your onc or bc nurse to have the talk with both of you remember you will be feeling more tired because of the cumulative effects of treatments im still really tired i have tried to do too much and currently paying for it already in bed watching tele cos i think 2 weeks on i should be super fit 😔😂 but im not so need to take it a bit easier so you def need him to understand karen xxx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Rach, it has been ok with the daily wash not much has been coming out but I'm coming up for 14 days post last chemo so that could change. OH says it's getting better, it's just taking a while. I think it's growing though.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Meesh, could you try dentinox for your scalp? It’s what I used for my son when he had the same. Was also told to use olive oil overnight and wash out in the morning x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi peeps how's everyone?
Been for a biopsy today which involved a vacuum hose being inserted into my boob and all the suspicious stuff being hoovered out. It was a bit strange. They've put another clip in as they hoovered the old one out.

Got BRCA test results back and negative for mutations so that's good for my other boob and my family. So I got cancer by bad luck.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Thanks rach they put a clear dressing over stitches so I can see them and got to take temperature etc x
Think they wanted it out pretty quick or they would still have to flush it every week xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karen, We've still plenty of time to ⛓ him by the ⚽🔒 to the back of the 🚂 for the daily 🥓🥓 trips. That should help him feel your pain.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Rach, hoorah for last injection! Another ✅for you.

 

Sue, good job the line is out, sorry to hear it was traumatic but another ✅, hoorah!

 

Back from on onc appt. was marginally better than previous ones 😕She's going to write to gp to refer me to dermatology for my head, although not sure what I'm supposed to do in the meantime 😔 I also asked if I could take some supplements (sage and high potency vitamin) but she just said I needed to check with gp to see if they interfere with the tamoxifen. I'd read that sage can help with the hot flushes.

 

Karen, she also said that just because I'm having hot flushes and not having regular periods (she said I might get the odd one now and then) it doesn't mean I'm menopausal, just on hormone therapy. So I'd definitely take precautions, although your OH will be lucky to be getting his end away after recent behaviour! 😱
