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 💪💪💐💐

Is anyone else having problems with nail discolouration? I've noticed that mine are just starting to look a little dark at the base, and I forgot to mention this to the oncologist today.
💜Fiona xxx 🤗🤗💪💪

First of all sorry for my last post, too long and a bit of a rant!
It’s a strange world we live in where we are delighted that one of us is well enough to have chemo! But Congratulations FiMilan! I can imagine the relief! I hope it goes well tomorrow and you are well enough to enjoy Christmas! My next chemo is 18th, so I should be at my worse over Christmas, thank goodness I am at my sister’s where I can just veg out.
Aneeebel, I can also sympathise with your situation, I prepared myself to be told I would need to lose a breast, but was very relieved when told that would be unnecessary. I too am still proud of my puppies, at 62 they are still quite perky. All I can say is this is a wonderful place to just let it all out, in a safe place with people who absolutely get where you are coming from. So don’t hold back if you need to rant.
Still feeling very tired, no improvement in bottom area, but it’s DH Birthday tomorrow so we are off to London to see Tina Turner ( if I can stay awake) so I have slapped my happy face on and will get though it without ruining his celebration!

ElliesMum, I do love red wine, I have to say, especially if it's Italian. We're not big drinkers but could easily drink 3 bottles a week between the two of us. I still keep trying to work out what caused Humphrey's existence, it's either alcohol but I don't think I'm over the weekly allowance, a fall I had in July or just bad luck. Genetics inferred that there really wasn't enough history for it to be BRCA1 or 2 but I was borderline on whether I should be referred to genetics anyway (it seems I'm borderline for everything - lumpectomy/mastectomy, wbc for C2, referral to genetics).
Ive just looked at the clock and realised its just gone 9! That's a miracle for me to still be awake! 😂 I went to work yesterday for about 5 hours and was fast asleep by 8.15. However, I'm always awake anytime from 4.30 onwards. It was 5 this morning. And I did about 4 hours in the office again today.
Well done you on your students 👏👏 Chemical physics? OMG! That sounds very complicated.
Bed time now I think, it's suddenly started to hit me. Does everyone else suffer the same way?
Good night 🤗🤗🍷😉
