Hello ladies! Haven't been on for a while as OH has had me locked in a cage on The seafront 😂🤣😂 No, I've been on holiday in Ireland. It was absolutely lovely.
Buddyfan your holiday sounds amazing and sounds like you really made the most of it. As for the hair, unfortunately curly hair can grow outwards for sometime. You have to go through the clown phase first then all of a sudden it will start to drop. My OH said I look like a sheep 🐑 the other day and my haircut is not due for another 2 weeks 😕 Mine is still shorter on top then pre-chemo but I don't think anyone but me would know that.
Paulus, not sure if you're still reading our thread, but I'm glad I made you laugh. As Sue said us Oct ladies laughed and danced 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃our way through chemo, it's the only way.
I can't believe it's a year since we all met on this forum. You are all such marvellous crazy ladies, especially you Shi 😘 the journey would not have been the same without you. And Mishy you're right Karana's hair is amazing, she's bleached it and it looks fab.
Just wanted to say thank you for your good wishes for last Friday when I went back to work. I was exhausted by playtime! I had a good morning though, but found it tiring. It's bound to be like that for a while though, I haven't worked since last October! x
I don't usually look at chemo threads, because it feels like being nosey sometimes, but scrolling through 'latest posts', Meesh73, your comment got my curiosity - and bless you and your husband for your wonderful sense of humour - your comment about 3 boobs/seaside/horrified consultant had me in fit of giggles for ages. All the best x
He was worried that we might not have enough Euros 😂🤣😂We'll never have to worry about running out of money now with my 3rd booby 😂
Hello ladies! Haven't been on for a while so just catching up. Mishy, Shi I wore heather shimmer and also blue mascara and eyeliner too and also spent far too much on secondhand 501s 😂
Jencat, glad to hear you've been back to work, take things easy and I hope it helps to make you feel more like yourself.
I discovered I had a swollen armpit on my non-surgery side a few weeks ago and finally had my appointment today. It turns out I'm growing a 3rd boob 😳😱😂 Apparently 2% of women have breast tissue in their armpit and one of them happens to be me! Had ultrasound and everything is ok they think it's probable the tamoxifen that's made it swell. OH said he was going to take me to the seafront and charge people to look at my 3 boobs 😂🤣😂The consultant look horrified.
Buddyfan, hope you're doing ok? I'm off to Ireland on holiday on Sunday, getting quite excited now 😊
Thank you all for your kind wishes and for thinking about me x Yesterday pm went ok and I only cried once! (one of the voluntary helpers had come in and she was telling me that her mum and SIL had suffered with anxiety after they'd recovered from cancer and she understood why I'd be feeling it too. She also offered to come into school to help me sometimes, which was kind) Anyway, we didn't have the training after all as there'd been a mix up, but tbh I was quite pleased about that as it meant I could just chat and potter!
I'd picked up my Fit For Work note from the doctor's before I went into school and was glad I did as it made my back to work meeting easier as the note is for 6wks (and states it can be extended if needed) and stipulates what work I should be doing, ie only 1/4 or a 1/3 for the first 2weeks and then slowly extended, so I'm only working Fri morn this week and next and having another meeting after that to see how I'm coping.
I'm not sure if I can even remember how to take the register, so that might be half the morning gone doing that! xx
First day back at work today after being away for 11mths! (well not a whole day actually, just this pm for a meeting with my Head and some IT training) I've got mixed feelings-when I had to 'leave' in Oct because my onc said I couldn't be around the children, I couldn't imagine being absent for so long and couldn't wait to get back, now I'm not sure that I feel ready to return as I don't feel 100% fit physically and especially mentally, but I suppose this feeling is normal?! Part of me thinks perhaps i should have had a few more weeks off, but then maybe it might have been harder to return.
I dreamt I had a class of children last night and I lost them when they went to the toilet before lunch, think it must be anxiety manifesting itself in my sleep! xx
Well done Cassie Very impressed you were able to climb a mountain! (and play a violin at the top!) I'm not surprised you felt a bit achy, I'm worn out just climbing a hill! xx
Got sent my next appointment to see my surgeon today-August 2019-that's very organised!
Had to smile at my letter regarding last weeks appointment when I got my mammo results-it said "I reviewed this very pleasant lady in clinic today"- wondered if they would also write "I reviewed this very unpleasant/bad tempered lady" etc! x
Glad you received it ok Shi,I had a job to read my writing, so wasn't sure I'd sent it to the correct address!
I'm not sure if I've said this to you already, but so pleased you had good mammo results xx
