I have started a December 2017 radiotherapy thread on Going Through Treatment, Radiotherapy, if you want to post of there as well when you start as you will get loads of help and support from the ladies who are going through it at the same time as you.
Yes Helena i cannot wait for shower day.
Angela great to hear you.
As for your boss. Really has no clue. I actually cannot write the words i want to here about her would get there off site
Like you Angela it has been so quick it hasn't hit me yet i know it hasnt.
I have had the tears but nothing to write home about. I think I am trying to block most of it out make it not real if that makes sense.
On a Sunday!! I would very politely say to her that whilst you appreciate her checking to see how you are but that it would be better if she text you on a weekday, silly woman.
You are right, we get on this rollercoaster of hospital appointments we go into automatics, then there is a gap before rads start.
Its amazing isnt it and that is only 3 weeks after your op, I am over 12 months and all I have is a thin line that just looks like a crease and I had 20 sessions of rads on it.
I think there is a point at which it suddenly hits you. I remember when I was about to start rads, which was about 9 weeks after my op, I felt that I was doing too well and was concerned that I was going to crash and burn, my boss arranged for me to have counselling which did me the world of good because I was dealing with other changes in the life of myself and my partner. Dont know if you have thought about having some as it gives you a safe environment to talk to someone who is not emotionally attached to you.
If you go to the Going Through Treatment section, radiotherapy thread, I will be starting a December 2017 Radiotherapy string on there where you will be able to talk with ladies who are going through or starting rads in December
Oh I cant help on that one, I know when I had my lumpectomy I was not allowed to shower because I did not have a waterproof dressing over the areas, that was because I am allergic to the sticky stuff on them, I just topped and tailed for the 10 days, but boy it was amazing the first time I did shower
Your bcn will be able to tell you if you give her a call xx
Thank you Helena.
Good to hear fromyou.
Meant to ask in my previous post.
