October 2018 Chemo starters

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Good luck with round two, Lou. You can get through it! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’ช

Kateday, I felt sick for a week. Started feeling a little better from day 4, and nausea had largely gone by day 7. (Iโ€™m on FEC.) I really struggled to eat or drink, but eventually found that I could stomach sparkling apple juice and that really helped! Drinking water was horrible for the first week for me. It does get better. Iโ€™ve felt fine the rest of the cycle. Gearing up for round two on Friday now! ๐Ÿ‘

Iโ€™m thinking of you, Aneeebel. Youโ€™ve had a bit of a rough time so far! Fingers crossed your tinnitus subsides soon - not what you need right now! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I hope your distric nurse comes soon to put your mind at ease, Fiona. Good to hear your husband is working from home so he can be there for you. ๐Ÿ’•

Love and gentle hugs to all! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’œ

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Hi ๐Ÿ’œFiona, I still feel really "odd" to be honest! I've developed tinnitus too which doesn't help! I also feel fragile... Seem to be taking two steps forwards and one step back... ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Hope you're all feeling well... Have a good day ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž xx

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Hi Aneeebel

I hope you're feeling a bit better today. I had to have a nap yesterday afternoon but it worked. We just have to listen to our bodies and if they say rest, then rest it is.

I'm having a bit of a wobble today so hubby's working from home just to be there for me. 

 

Kateday, keep sipping the water.  I'm on Akynzeo too with dexamethasone, but both of these I have to take one hour before chemo. I've got domperidone as anti-sickness pills but I've not had to use them yet so couldn't tell you if they're any good. I've still got taste buds so far, but I'm only on day 5.

 

I'm waiting for the district nurse to come today and stressing about that, what if they don't turn up etc. 

 

Thinking of you all and hoping you all have a positive day, big hugs ๐Ÿค—

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

A daytime nap sounds like an excellent idea, Aneeebel! Be kind to yourself and take things gently. I hope you feel a bit more steady on your feet and less tired tomorrow after a good sleep. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’•

Great work, Fiona, getting through your first few days and managing a long walk. So pleased to hear the side effects have been kind to you thus far - long may it continue! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค—

Very brave, Lou, going ahead with the shave. Good on you! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ช

Welcome, Kateday, to this fabulous group. The ladies have been so lovely and supportive of me (and of everyone here). It has helped me immensely! Thank you all! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•

Thanks for the tips, Shi! I will definitely ask about the anti-sickness medsโ€™ you mentioned. Food tasted horrible for a week last time (continuing longer than the nausea) so Iโ€™m super encouraged that you managed to avoid losing your tastebuds. Fingers crossed there is a combination of anti-sickness meds that will work better for me in round two. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™ˆ

Goodnight and hugs to all! Xox ๐Ÿ’œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

I feel the same, as my first session was last Friday so these lovely ladies this month are at least two weeks ahead of me. We'll all get there though. 

Have you got sea sickness bands? They've certainly helped me and I've not needed to take the antisickness pills. And water, just keep drinking the water.

Take care ๐Ÿค—

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Hello lovely ladies,

Well i did it i braved the shave my son done it for me i thought i was going to be upset but to be honest i feel quite good apart fom a cold head๐Ÿ˜จ i think my son made it easier for me because we had a good laugh he left me with a mohawk at one point, i have a few little bristly bits but i guess that will come out on its own,

Kateday,
Welcome,
Glad your first session went well as for feeling sick i have found ginger biscuits help me infact i got some mcvities ginger man biscuits theres 6 little packs in a bag very nice, hope that helps,
Stay warm,

Hope all our other ladies are okay today,

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Lou, make sure you take the injection out of the fridge 20mins before you need it. Pinch a good inch and holding the flesh go in at a 30degree angle. You do get used to it I promise. Kx

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Fiona
Glad you feeling good i think i only had to rough days but again i think i made it worse by not drinking, i drinking like a fish today ready for tomorrow,
My son had said he will shave my head if i want him to i am thinking about it for today because my head realy irritable at the mo and everytime i go to gently rub or scratch it clumps of hair come out ๐Ÿ˜ฎ,
I was a bit nervous about the injections but i managed to do them myself i put an ice pack on my tummy first then did it ๐Ÿ˜–,
I will keep you posted if i brave the shave,

Enjoy your day ladies,

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Morning Lou

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 ๐Ÿ˜œ . 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 ๐Ÿ˜ข 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 ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช and safe. Big hugs ๐Ÿค—

Morning ladies,

Fiona hope you doing okay my lump was feeling a bit tender too i thought perhaps its the fec working i hope so anyway and as for tierdness exactly the same i was in bad for 9 but then awake again in an hour then on off all night ive tried to go bed later the last week but i still have restless nights the last 3 nights its been my head with the prickly sensation and got up with head ache my hair coming out thick and fast now and gone patchy, ๐Ÿค—

Elliesmum,
I know what you mean about feeling anxious ive git my second round tomorrow and i dreading it incase it knocks me about , ive been told to make sure i keep drinking plenty because i do struggle with getting the fluids in i not a big drinker, ๐Ÿค—

Have a good day , stay ๐Ÿ’ชstrong ladies and warm ,

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

ElliesMum, be brave, you can do this. And we're all here to support you ๐Ÿ‘ญ You've done the first one and got through it, so well done to you. ๐Ÿ…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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

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 ๐Ÿ˜œ). Does everyone else get tired quickly? I'm in bed by 9 every night, having already fallen asleep on the sofa ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Take care lovely ladies, stay safe and warm ๐Ÿค—

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Sar_ah Iโ€™m sorry you got such an early wake up greeting (even if it was super cute)! Daylight savings is a bit rough with little ones. If it makes you feel any better, we were up at 5am this morning too! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ (Sadly my in laws live 3 hours away, so a child-free night is like gold dust!)

I have my second cycle on Friday, and even though I feel well at the moment Iโ€™m starting to feel a tiny bit anxious about it. I guess I know whatโ€™s coming now, and I really donโ€™t want to feel so horribly unwell again! ๐Ÿ™ˆ I see the oncologist tomorrow for a review. I have felt well since about day 8, but really did feel absolutely terrible for the first 3-4 days. Is there anything I should be asking to change this time? I had Emend from the outset, but sadly it didnโ€™t seem to make much of a difference for me! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Had a nightmare night on Friday, hubby phoned the emergency number for chemo and they told him to phone 999 for an ambulance, I had terrible trouble swallowing, Friday night in hospital with drunks, druggies and people who had been in fights.
I felt so ill, the staff were lovely and tried to put me on a bed away from other people. The doctor came to a conclusion that I had some reaction to the sickness medication I'd taken, gave me a strong intrevenous of antihistamines and that seemed to help. Got home and into bed at 4.30 totally exhausted. Not a good start and so stressful for my OH.

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Hi Aneeebel

I'm surprised at how well I feel to be honest. No sickness, just very slight nausea but I'm wearing my sea sickness bands and it seems to be helping, not had to resort to the anti-sickness pills yet.  I do have a headache which started on the C input yesterday. But it's better than it was yesterday and I've not resorted to painkillers, just drinking loads. The only thing is I have a flushed face, but temperature is fine. 

 

I didnt sleep very well because I was expecting to be ill! So I'm still tired but managing to do housework etc.

 

How are you after No 2? I do hope you're ok ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

 

Take care all of you and keep fighting, you lovely ladies.

Re: October 2018 Chemo starters

Wow ladies you are doing well, the hair/wig issue is a biggie at first but once its gone you do get used to it, go with whatever you feel is right, wigs arent for everyone, mine looked lovely but i still hated having to wear it.  Now its getting colder out there will be lovely snuggly hats to wear.  Somebody mentioned what to do about eyebrows and lashes?  I didnt lose mine until chemo 5 out of 6 but if you can book yourselves on to the Looking Good Feeling better course, its free and you get shown how to draw in eyebrows etc and you get lots of lovely freebies.. its a really good pamper for you and a few hours away from this nightmare!

Keep ticking off the days,,

Hold on in there Lou45, we are here for you and I know you don't feel like yourself anymore, but inside you are still the beautiful person you always have been. I know it's easy to say, but our looks are on the outside, people see us for what we are in our behavior and I know your confidence has been knocked back, but you're not alone and we all know what you are going through. You have to look in that mirror and say, I'm me and I can do this, because we all have our arms around you to give you support and you are you. When this is all over, you will look back and say 'I got through and out the other side and I'm still me. We are all holding hands, don't let go now.

I have my second one on tuesday feeling bit anxious if i honest although my first one went okay and i wasnt to bad i got a feeling i wont be so lucky this time, my hair has started to come out now too i just dont feel like myself anymore i started off real positive but i not so much now ๐Ÿ˜ซ,
