Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

It's a year ago today that I started chemo, that doesn't seem possible! I've still got some neuropathy in my fingers and toes and lack stamina, but otherwise I'm ok. I'm back at work now, but on a Phased Return, which has helped. I was worn out by playtime the first week! Smiley Happy

Love to you all xx

Hi Ladies

 

This thread is for anyone who is about to start chemo next week.

 

Hopefully you can all help and support each other as you go through your treatment.

 

I had chemo last year, so I will try and help as much as possible. If you have any questions please ask and if I don't know, I can at least point you in the right direction of who to ask!

 

Best wishes

Sue xx

Hiya lovely ladies

 

Just popped in to say hello.  Recovering well from my hysterectomy and had my staples out today so that is another milestone.  Having a very very lazy Sunday as it has exhausted me plus I didnt have a good night sleep last night.  Got to remember it is not even a week since I had surgery, patience Lady B patience.

 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.

 

Helena xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Chaffinch, 😂🤣😂🤣😂that was a hilarious blooper and yes very wrong on a few levels. Never been on amyliptriline (I know that's spelt wrong but I can't be bothered to look it up and correct it) I hope it works for you.

Buddyfan, good to hear from you. How're your curls doing now, are they raphelite yet? I also think I have slightly different intensity of SEs with different brands of tamoxifen. I seem to be on one that makes my legs ache at the moment, it's not too bad unless I go up a few flights of stairs 😱 The flushes are relentless nothing natural I've tried works (magnet, sage) so I'll just have to live with them as I'm not taking anymore meds.

Hope everyone is getting on ok, sending ❤️ and 🤗

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I love horse racing Shi, my son has just got a job in the industry. He. Like his dad and grandad has great knowledge of it. We have a few good meetings in Cheltenham every year. I would probably avoid the main Gold Cup meeting and New Year’s Day though because they are crazy.
Having said that Aintree could work too because we have family up that way. Xx

I’ve just been diagnosed with painful bladder syndrome and am to take a low dose of amitryptaline for the nerve pain. Anyone else ever taken it? I’m a bit reluctant as I already rattle 🙄. GP thinks it’s been triggered by very low oestrogen levels following menopause then made worse by anastrazole taking them to rock bottom. I’ll just be happy to get some comfort back though 🙄

Hope all is well with you Helena and you are recovering well. A nice pair of lovely soft big pants and a gentle hug to you. .....that was a close one, my phone autocorrected gentle to genital 😱. That would have been inappropriate on so many levels 🤣. Seriously though wishing you a speedy recovery xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Ali, I had a horrible couple of weeks of aches and pains before realising that the shape of the pack of letrozole was different to whatecer I was using before. switched back to another pack I had and within a day I felt better. Try different makes, for me, I now know not to have Cipla. Accord seems ok, but everyone is different.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Good luck for Thursday Helena hope it all goes to plan. Not been on here for a while busy trying to get back to “normal” life. I’m feeling OK at the minute physically but still struggling with getting my head around what we have been through over the last year. Hope your all doing OK, can’t believe it’s been a year since we first came on this thread. Love to all 💕💕
