Back from the oncologist and passed fit for my 4 th Chemo on Tuesday. I am to have my last Docetaxel, Herceptin plus Perjeta. After Christmas I change to 3 x EC. I can’t believe that I will be over half way!
I understand that nausea is much worse with EC, whereas I haven’t felt sick at all with the docetaxel. My oncologist says that as docetaxel is made from yew trees some people are less tolerant to it. I feel I have been lucky so far. However, each cycle has been harder than the previous one in terms of tiredness and other, mainly annoying SEs.
Good of luck everyone having chemo, and see you all on the other side.
Thankyou ElliesMum... Everything is crossed for both of us!
And anyone else who's undergoing chemo of course... 😘💗 x
Yippee.... Half way through Mrs fingers.... Hope you feel well x 💗💪🏼
Take care everyone x 😘🎀💗💐
Morning everyone, hope we are all ok this morning.
Elliesmum, I absolutely get about having a plan. I have my oncologist meeting next week for bloods etc prior to cycle 4 YES cycle 4, I can’t believe how fast the time is going. I hope that all is OK even if it means I will feel rubbish over Xmas.
Fiona, treat yourself to a sofa day to relax after your chemo, you know you deserve it!
I am not sure if my nails are starting to change colour, but they are very sore. I am finding picking things up and getting pills out of their packets really challenging. It feels like I have squished my nails and they are bruised, if that makes sense. I will ask my oncologist about it when I see him.
Has anyone got a mottled red rash? My hands, face and chest is covered in a rash that has little red spots that bleed? I think it’s to do with the docetaxel but it is very itchy and on top of everything else is getting me down!
I also had a call from the hospital to say that my uterus ultrasound has throw up a problem that need further investigation so I now have to have a Hysteroscopy! They decided to to an ultrasound as part of the whole women’s heath thing! Blimey, all I need is something to go wrong with my bladder and I will complete the set of nether region investigations, perhaps I should sell tickets for anyone else who wants to have a look!
Finally, some good news! Tina Turner was fantastic, the actress playing the part was really good, it’s a huge part, so I was most impressed with her stamina to do the show twice a day. We had a lovely time in London, we stayed over so I could get some rest, and on Friday we had lunch in a little fish restaurant in Brough Market which was lovely. DH has no problem finishing my food when I’ve had enough! But I did manage to eat all of my dressed crab, delicious😋
Hi Lovely Ladies.... Hope you're all well!
ElliesMum, I'm so pleased you managed nearly a full nights sleep.... Hope you get many more! 😴😴😴
I've started waking up 3 or 4 times during the night... So frustrating! 😴
Badboob, did you enjoy the concert? 💃🏼🎤
💜Fiona....hopefully you'll continue to feel well! Fingers and toes crossed! 🙏🏼💪🏼💗 I was on the same cycle as you but now the oncologist has delayed my no.4, my 'good week' is no longer Christmas week!! 🙄🎄🎅🏼
I'm not having problems with my nails so I'm unable to offer any advice! 💅🏼
Hope you all have a fab weekend, take care and stay 💪🏼 xxx
Thanks ElliesMum, I'm home now and curled up on the sofa with the fire going and plenty of water by my side deciding what rubbish to watch on telly 😃 I'm feeling reasonable. I get an instant headache and runny nose with the C but it's slowly wearing off. Not too much nausea as yet, that'll probably kick in tomorrow.
I hope everyone is well and keeping warm and toasty.
Have a lovely weekend 💪💪💐💐
