I feel surprisingly well and I'm shocked by that to say the least. I haven't really had any nasty side effects, just slight nausea and headache for a couple of days. I've not needed to take the anti-sickness pills, I just make sure I drink at least 4 pints of water a day. I drank that much while I was receiving the chemo, I think it may have helped. I do seem to have a slight tingle in my fingers on my left hand today and my scalp feels a bit weird too, so maybe the FEC is working. I was beginning to think they'd given me fake stuff as I wasn't suffering much 😜 . I should start on the injections tomorrow, when the district nurse turns up, I don't want to do that bit!
I'm not looking forward to the hair loss bit, just like the rest of you. I hope it's quick. My hubby has agreed to shave it for me once it starts coming out. I don't think I could face going to my hairdresser 😢 It's going to be traumatic enough as it is.
It's a beautiful day outside, ladies, I hope you're all going to take advantage of it. I'm hoping to go for a walk later when hubby's home.
Stay 💪💪 and safe. Big hugs 🤗

ElliesMum, be brave, you can do this. And we're all here to support you 👭 You've done the first one and got through it, so well done to you. 🏅Each cycle we go through is one step closer to the end and being well again.
I don't think my lump Humphrey is too pleased about his FEC treatment, he feels a bit tender today and I'm only on day 4 of cycle 1. I can only hope that FEC is doing its job 😉
Today's the first day on my own, as hubby's gone to work, although he says he'll only do a half day. I don't want to waste the day so have got a list of jobs to work through (or not depending on how I feel 😜). Does everyone else get tired quickly? I'm in bed by 9 every night, having already fallen asleep on the sofa 😀
Take care lovely ladies, stay safe and warm 🤗
