Really cold watermelon is quite soothing at the moment.  Worth trying if your struggling with bad taste / oral thrush.

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hello ladies, sorry to drop in again but j though of something else the nurses suggested to try for nasty tongue and tastelessness...  Try getting the fizzy vitamin c tablets (ones in a tube which you should put in water) and let half of ine dissolve on your tongue... You can have a whole ine butntheh are quite sharp.  They do cut through the thick coating and help for a while.

Anyway just a tip to pass on.

Keep strong

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Thanks Aley - nice to know im not the only one. I think I was overly-worrying too as my Dad got pneumonia on his second chemo and ended up in HDU. Even bought myself an oxygen saturation finger monitor at the weekend as I was worried I was short of breath - my levels are a healthy 99%...

 

Yes I've had the injections this time and looking at the filgrastim research evidence online, day 11 does look like the lowpoint in WBC count. My WBC before round 1 was 7.8, down to 3.8 before round 2 so I guess I was starting from a weaker position. My neutrophils dropped from 5.07 to 1.41 too. Will be interesting to see where they end up before my next round...

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi Pulapula,
No it doesn’t sound silly at all-I was like that on my first cycle..my mind was just all over the place..I was ringing the hospital everyday at one point! I was on LGFB with a ROSCO trial lady who seemed to be saying that they were going to continue with all the chemo before operating.. but yes I was under the impression they operated after 4. Did you get the injections? You have them from day 2 for 5 days.. I had them this cycle as my white count had dropped..so far ok! Hope you feel better soon xx

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi all, I'm on the ROSCO trial. I think they scan (ultrasound or MRI) after the 4th chemo, and then I think they operate, and if necessary, more chemo afterwards. My tumour is easy to feel, and I can feel its shrunk a bit, but as they operate whatever, I dont think the size matters really.

 

I've been feeling very sorry for myself recently as I've been so tired and unable to do anything, and then I got a cold/sore throat too. But I think yesterday was the low point and now I'm on the up (fingers crossed). I was feeling so ill yesterday I phoned the hospital for advice. I was continually checking my temp, wishing it would go up so I could go into hospital to get checked over/have blood tests - does that sound silly? I was just so worried I had an infection brewing as I felt so ill. I'm hoping it was just the low point in my immune system (11 days after chemo) and now its improving. Hoping to get away for the weekend with the family before the next chemo starts.

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Aley,
I’ve not heard of that trial. I will google it now but no I’m not on it. At the hospital I attend they give you an MRI after every 2 rounds of chemo to keep a track of it.

I’m in bed feeling really sick Smiley Sad

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi CatGarland
Ok I might see how it goes after next FEC (3rd) are you on the rosco trial? Just wondering when they scan as it sounds a bit random re:timing.. I was told I’d be scanned after 7th cycle! Seems a long time to wait! So wondering if I should insist on an MRI earlier..I was a candidate for the trial but was told I couldn’t participate as my estrogen and progesterone levels were too high! Hope everyone is having a good day..X
Member

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Aley, I had a Picc line put in on Friday as I told my onc I could no longer cope with needles in my hand, my hand is still bruised and painful from the last chemo session 3 weeks ago.

I was told my MRI results during today’s chemo. So far after 2 FEC chemos the tumor hasn’t shrunk but also not got bigger which they are please with. I start the THP on 13th November which they are hoping will start to shrink it, if not they may delay the rest of the chemo and operate early just in case it starts to get bigger.

Wishing you all a good week xxx

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Just walked my loopy dog in the sunshine....lovely! 

 

I have a port in my arm. I had it put in about a week before my first chemo. It was very easy to put in....I have little arms so protrudes a bit and I found it a bit sore and annoying at first - now I don’t even notice it. The nurse basically pushes a needle into the skin above the port...it can hurt a bit and they can apply an anesthetic but that takes another half an hour to kick in so I’ve not bothered. Once needle is in you can’t feel anything. They can draw blood easily and drugs just get pushed in! 

 

I have good veins but hate cannulas so have been happy with port.

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Thanks for the input Gaby.  I suppose i’ve Got to think that it’s 2 more months & then the worst is over.  Enjoy your gardening.  I’m making soup then off for afternoon out with hubby. It’s sunny but cold so just going to wrap up.

 

Aley - I have a central line which is similar I think.  It makes life so much easier than being used as a pincushion every time they try to get bloods.  Definitely worth it I would say.

i know the oral thrush & bad taste in your mouth is awful.  Keep persevering.  Mine’smuch better after about a week on nystatin but not completely gone.

 

Enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts x

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi Jacqs,

 

I'm triple negative and on weekly Paclitaxel plus Carboplatin every three weeks. The Paclitaxel is quite easy to tolerate - just tiredness, bad taste for a couple of days, a a few stomach niggles, but nothing major really. I find the Carboplatin harder to deal with, as it really affects my stomach and taste buds and I feel farily lousy for 3-4 days. The weekly routine does dominate your life a little. I have a picc line which needs sorting, plus bloods, every Tuesday, and Wednesday is my Chemo day, so that's two days of my week taken up with hospital visits. It's a bit boring, but otherwise totally manageable. The Carboplatin also seems to have a worse effect on my neutrophils, so that's a bit annoying, as I am always a bit worried that my count will be too low. I've got four cycles of paclitaxel/carboplatin in total; done two and am about to start on cycle 3 this week, i.e. have the double-dose of both drugs to look forward to for Wednesday Smiley Frustratedso have kind of written off the rest of this week plus weekend, as I know I won't be feeling great. You may react quite differently to this lovely cocktail, but I think in general both drugs are tolerated reasonably well.

 

Thanks to everyone for the various tips on dealing with the bad taste. I haven't tried ice lollies or fizzy sweets, so will give those a go, but I gues really it's just something we have to deal with.

 

It's still beautifully sunny here, so am going to potter about in our garden, which is a bit of a jungle. Smiley Wink

Hi Aley.  My doctor prescribed Nystatin for my oral thrush.  I’m also using the corsodyl mouthwash twice a day, which is helping.  Hope you’re feeling better soon x

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi ladies, i fully understand the taste issues, some of the things i found helped were regular salt water mouth washing, salty things were ok,  anything ginger,  tonic water, fruit teas, fizzy haribo sweets, pineapple.  It really is try and see, some soup was good too.    Also if your mouth gets sore ask chemohnit for mouth wash and for ulcers try Iglu and ask for fluconozole for oral thrush.  Brush yiur teeth after eating  too.  Hang in there your taste wil return.

Big hugs

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi All,

I’m having same problem with taste.  Pineapple is good, ice cold drinks ( but not fizzy) hot water with lemon, ginger & honey, ice lollies.  Unfortunately none of them last long enough to keep it away.

Does anyone have any knowledge on how weekly chemo differs to 3 weekly cycles?

i’be just finished my 3 FEC & was due to start 3 cycles of doxetacil (T), but yesterday following an appointment with a new oncologist I was advised that it would be better to switch to weekly Paclitaxel & Carboplatin for 9 weeks.  I’m triple negative so he feels this would be better for me.  Maybe it’s the thought of weekly chemo sessions as opposed to every 3 weeks.  I had some horrendous SE from FEC but still usually managed 1 good week out of each 3.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.  Weather is lovely here, crisp but blue skies so am going out with my step-daughter this afternoon for little retail therapy & bite to eat.  Xx

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Thanks Galligirl. I've had a quick look at the Macmillan site and I don't think I'll qualify. As far as I can tell you have to have real issues with mobility and/or looking after yourself to qualify. I don't have any problems with any of those, but at least I've checked it out.

 

I'm loosing my sense of taste again today and getting that horrid metallic/musty taste instead. This seems to happen most weeks on day 2-3 after the treatment and is even worse when I have Carboplatin (i.e. next week - yipee!), when it seems to last for 3-4 days. I really like my food and find this one of the most annoying SE. Pineapple and very spicy curries seem to be the only thing that can overpower or at least reduce that awful taste, but I haven't found any really effective way of dealing with this. Anyone got any other tips?

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi ladies,

 

Aley: I had a bone scan as well, but I think that is because I am triple negative and they wanted to check out absolutely everything before I started on chemo. Luckily all my scans were clear.

 

About PIP: do we qualify for this automatically because we've got cancer, or do we have to show that there are mobility/other issues that limit what we can do? I've checked the government website, but that doesn't provide any detailed guidance, though it does seem to imply that you have to have limited mobility and/or problems with everyday tasks to qualify. I guess I can just phone their helpline to find out, but wondered if any of you know more about this?

i had a ct scan and bone scan after they found the extent of my cancer was more than expected - both were found to be clear!. Oncologist implied that ct scan was now good enough to see bone issues and that the bone scan was a double check ordered by surgeon. Just my experience. GG

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi Pulapula - although not the best place to be in one way in another you've found the best support and advice available by joining Breast Cancer Care's forum!  I certainly wouldn't have got through it all last year as well as I did had I not found this safe place!  I'm from May 2017 Chemo starter group and still on here browsing daily to see if I can offer any help or support following my experiences!

 

Anyhow, I've seen you mention PIP and my reply to you on your question is a definite YES - I didn't come across it until after the chemo, surgery and radiotherapy - I applied and I was successful in achieving the lower amount.  However, I was informed during my assessment that had I applied whilst going through chemo - I would have been accepted straightaway.  So please do fill in the form - there's nothing to loose! - it also removes the financial burden that cancer brings with it!  I work in school and I was unable to attend once the chemo started due to infection risk - I therefore ran out of full pay and had to go onto sick pay - a huge difference and at the same time - bills increase (due to being at home more!) and expenses increase (not being able to drive yourself at times and when I had surgery I had to have help to do things like hoovering, ironing etc).  One tip when completing the form - think of how you feel on your worse days......

 

Good luck with the remainder of your treatment xx

Hi
Did anyone have a bone scan? I didn’t and wondered if I should have asked for one?

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Welcome Cat. I was diagnosed 8 August so similar to you. Ive also been told they can’t stage til after surgery but I’m grade 3 (Triple negs are always grade 3) and from googling I think I’m stage 2 as tumour is 30mm and sentinel lymph node biopsy results were negative.

Pat - I’ve got some toothpaste and mouthwash on prescription so my mouth is much better now thanks. Good news on your tumour shrinkage. Mine had shrunk (touching only - not scanned yet) by around 5mm after 1 FEC which was encouraging.

My kids aren’t bothered by my hair loss - I just have half an inch of fuzz. No eyebrow loss yet. Still on the waiting list for my pamper day but looking forward to it.

Has anyone on here thought about claiming PIP? I’ve got the form from DWP and filled it in but don’t know if I’m wasting my time applying?
Member

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi CatGarland,
Scary similarities! I was diagnosed on 6th August..I’m 45 I have 26mm grade 2 tumour with 1 lymph node involved (so far) Ive Had MRI of breasts and CT of abdomen..No PET scan though & I have wondered if I should ask for it..I’ve got a 4 year old who started reception in September, thankfully he’s fine & settled in well..I’ve got my second FEC on Friday so a little behind you, I think I’ve got 4 of each. Im having chemo first so was told by BCN they can’t stage it as I haven’t had surgery yet..
Member

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi Ladies.
Hope you’re all having a good day.
My name is Cat, I’m 40. I was diagnosed with HER2+ BC on 6th August, within a few days I had MRI, CT and PET scan but although being told the results (no spread) I’ve never actually been told what stage I am or the size of the tumor. I think it’s in 1 lymph node if I remember rightly.

I started FEC on 11th Sept, shaved my hair just after my second FEC and I have my 3rd FEC on Tuesday (23rd). My SE have been standard really, constant nausea for about 7 days (I take Emend, Ondansteron and Metoclopramide)

On 13th November I start THP chemo so I’m going to ask my onc what the side effects are with that. Im such a baby when it comes to being sick and nausea.

Mentally I’m getting stronger, I lost the plot when I was diagnosed as I lost my mum 11 years ago to BC. Hubby works away in the week so it’s just me and my 6 year old son Parker. He’s amazing and has dealt with my hair loss amazingly. I always wear my wig to school for him as he said he’s worried for me that people stare but today I went out in just a beanie and he didn’t even notice bless him. He is off school at the moment with a sickness bug, I’m praying I don’t catch it until after I’ve had my bloods taken on Friday.

Anyway, I think that’s it about me!! I’ve read all the posts in the thread so I’m all up to date with everything now I think.

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Looks like my breathlessness and tight chest were caused by my digestive problems, ie basically too much acid. They offered me some medication but as it's only happened once and I don't want to take any additional medication unless it's absolutely necessary, I declined for now. My neutrophils were also down again, but luckily bumped back up to acceptable levels over night. What fun all this is!

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi everone,

 

As I was walking back from the hospital after bloods and Picc Line care this morning, I started to feel rather breathless and my chest seemed to tighten a bit. The feeling only lasted while I was walking (takes me about 30 minutes door to door) and it's completely gone now that I've had a rest, but it was a bit odd. Has anyone else had that? I assume it's just another new SE, but will check it with my nurses tomorrow when I go in for chemo.

 

I had a lovely day out with my other half yesterday. He/we enjoyed the time "out" so much, he has booked another day off work in November. If you can persuade your hushand/partner to do the same occasionally, I really recommend it as a way of getting some quality time away from everything, chores at home, cancer, children, and just enjoying eachother's company. He even felt relaxed enough by mid-afternoon to ask me how I was coping, something he has not done for a few weeks. He then just listened to my answer, put his arm around me, which was perfect - just a bit of love and comfort. Heart

 

Hope everyone has a good / reasonable week. Smiley WinkI'm on number 6 of 16 tomorrow, or 6 out of 12 carboplatin/paclitaxel (which sounds much better), to be followed by 4 EC in December.

Hello girls, justbwanted to offer a bit of advixe for thise of you eith "itchy wigs".  I have bamboo wig liner which is realy soft little skull cap which you wear under the wig and makes it so much better, j got it from the wig shop, also found once all hair gone it was more comfy.  Foe those of you approaching half way, my hair began growing by T No 2, now 3 weeks post last chemo and have fluffy hair all over head!! As for husbands mine struggled with talkingnto me aoart from saying "be positive" and ",it will be ok".. its hard for them to know what to say or to voice how they feel i i think, but there is help for partners from macmillan if they need it.

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Lisa T - I still have a few strands all over too..so I have gone from looking like a scabby badger when I first went short to now a sort of ducky fuzz! I assumed I will loose it all after FEC 2. Still have eyebrows and lashes ...and I think losing those will be the hardest...

 

FEC 2 on Thursday...just want to make it this time....( I had by first FEC in August then got an infection in my implant and had to have it removed...the delay meant I went back to the beginning again...so I have done two FEC 1s...)

Hi MamaTony,

I’ve not braved the shave yet either (although I have cut it shorter). I’ve got a few strands all over my head left, but thought I would be completely bald by now, or is it usual to keep some hair?

Good luck for Thursday ... half way whoo hoo. We are getting there 💪🏻❤️ Lisa xx

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi All,

The hair loss is just such a hard one to cope with. I don’t think I’ve felt as traumatised by anything as seeing my lovely hair coming out. I’ve not braved the shave yet even although I have only a pathetic few strands left but at least I can see a bit of hair under my scarves etc. I’m now wearing my wig quite a bit and feeling quite confident in it now... still a bit itchy mind you but not sure you can avoid that??

My hubby sounds like yours Lisa-T, he’s doing his best but always says ‘It will be fine’ when I try and talk to him about my fears. But I know he’s putting a brave face on for me which I admire and appreciate💕 Not easy for our other half’s either.

I am due my third FEC on Thursday. So the next few days I will be catching up on all my housework and getting a big food shop in preparation for a rough week of SE’s. However after the first week I am usually feeling fine so I can cope with that. Head down and I will be half way through treatment after Thursday...woohoo👏🏻👏🏻 And closer to ringing that bell 🔔🍾

Best wishes to everyone ❤️👍

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi everyone,

 

I washed my hair this morning and lost two large fistfuls of hair - it was just awful Smiley Sad. So, I phoned my lovely hairdresser and went to get a radical, very short pixie cut. And rather surpringly I actually quite like it. Now at least I don't have tons of loose hair falling in my food, clinging to my clothes and falling on my pillow. Also, I'm hoping that the lack of weight might actually help my remaining hair a bit. I'm so relieved I've done this. I also went for a headscarf workshop on Friday at my local Macmillan Centre. A lovely lady showed me lots of different ways how to wraps scarves around my head. She also had a huge selection of lovely beanies etc that she makes herself. They weren't cheap, but I treated myself to a couple. I'll need to keep my head warm, even if I don't loose all my hair.

 

I think I'm lucky with my husband. He's very worried of course and I've had to stop him from giving me "concerned" looks all the time, checking up on how I am etc. It was getting a little too much. But he now seems to have found a better balance. He wanted to come to the hospital for my treatment every week, but I have instead persuaded him to take the occasional day off when I'm actually feeling well, so that we can spend some quality time together, e.g. go to the cinema or for a walk. That way we're not just always talking about this wretched cancer and can enjoy eachother's company (without the children!). It's important not to forgot how to do that, I think. We've got our first "date" on Monday and are planning to go to an exhibition followed by a nice lunch - Mondays are my good days, so I'll enjoy my food!

 

Have a lovely Sunday (despite the rain!).

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Hi Pulapula,

I think my husband is really struggling too ... he just seems to be keeping really busy with work and trying not to think about it. Won’t talk about what’s going on ... if I say I’m worried he just says ‘you’ll be fine’ and when my hair was falling out and I was having a bit of a melt down ‘it’s just part of recovery’ ... quite dismissive of everything. I think it’s his way of coping but doesn’t really help me at all.

I’m sure having your Mum there will help ... it will take the pressure off hubby too.

I’ve got my 3rd FEC on Wednesday so starting to dread SE starting all over again 💪🏻 💕

Big hugs to all the ladies who are struggling with infections and SE 😘 hope you are feeling brighter today ❤️

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Thanks ktk. I’ve already shaved to a #4 which is half an inch so just wondering whether to go lower or just wait.

I’m sure my hubby is scared, but he’s just so busy trying to do everything I’m sure chatting is the bottom of his list after work, kids, house (DIY), dog, etc. My mum is coming tomorrow until fri which should hopefully help me and him out (and I know he’s been invited out by friends on thurs night so hopefully he’ll go). Just hope my mum behaves. She nursed my dad though cancer (we lost him 6 years ago) but with the kids around I want her to be positive and not all emotional! She found my short haircut a shock and said people need to get used to it and I don’t want to shock people!!! That’s the least of my worries! I’d better warn her that I’m nearly bald!

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Morning Ladies. Sorry to hear that some of you are having a rough time. Do look after yourselves. Hibernate in bed if you need to and do not hesitate to ring your helplines.

Pulapula, I shaved my head as soon as the big shred came. When I found what looked like a dead animal in the shower, off the rest came! You then eventually lose the stubble too, but it is not as noticeable as losing longer hair. I am sorry to hear that your OH is struggling to cope. Perhaps he needs someone in a similar situation to him to talk to. You could try talking to your BCN or your local charity who might be able to suggest some support for him. It is so hard for partners as not only do they see you suffering they have to consider losing you, which they will not have done before. Remember he loves you and is probably as scared or more so than you.

Much love to all. Keep warm and dry. Kxxx

Re: September 2018 Chemo Starters.

Kath1977, sorry to hear you’ve been feeling so fatigued and I’m relieved to hear you have got a reason for it and have some meds to help.

Sending positive vibes to others who have colds, mouth issues, and other SE too.

I had my second FEC on Thursday and have felt better than after the first which I think was because I had my PICC line put in then too so I had some SE from that.

I was however awake 230-630 in the night, tossing and turning and feeling sick, and I think I just needed a bit of food! Just caught up on my sleep now after some breakfast. Might need to keep a banana by my bed if it happens again.

My hair has nearly all fallen out. I have been encouraging it as I didn’t want it falling everywhere so have been bathing and showering twice a day and washing it through. It’s patchy though so do you think I need to do a final shave or do you think it will it all come out soon?

Anyone else finding it hard with their partner. I know mine is really busy at work (lots of stress) but he is really irritable and whilst he will fetch me things to save me getting up but it’s in a begrudging way. He has a real issue with loose hairs so he’s not been great when he finds some of mine!
