Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Lesley, you have my sympathy as I was having treatment for a frozen shoulder for several months prior to my BC diagnosis.  In fact I had a steroid injection into the joint in September - and intense Physio that had to stop on my diagnosis as the Physio said he wasn't trained to deal with post breast surgery Physio!!  It hasn't been helped by a fall I had onto it on Boxing Day.  Been having Physio since surgery with a lady with specific interest in post breast cancer Physio, and my arm is nearly as good as it was before the op.  Had my positioning scans for rads last week and they definitely aggravated my shoulders - not looking forward to 4 weeks of it really.

 

Rubycat - just off to google Mondors for a bit of self diagnosis!!

Charys

 

I agree, it is lovely the way in which it is so easy to talk about anything and everything on here and yes, that people just pop in and out as they want to, they way we get concerned if we havent heard from one of us for several days, it just feel safe comfortable and all in all just fab xxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Oh my 27 post notifications - and that's only since I went out at 7.30! A lovely day - despite being constantly beaten by Charys - no surprise to any of us that she's so good with words!
Antibiotics starting to kick in at last and was only slightly embarrassed to fall asleep at the hairdressers (surprise treat by OH)! Then taken out to supper (so many brownie points!). Shattered but happy. I'm beginning to dread return to work, even though everyone will be lovely. I've cancelled everything apart from the dentist next week to focus energy on work.
Lesley sending you a gentle hug (just in case Delly's wasn't enough). It's not fair cording and headaches and frozen shoulder. I take my hat off to you that you are still holding on to that sense of humour. Cording sounds horrible for all of you struggling with it. I start work on my shoulder at fatigue gym tomorrow. Wondering what the pace will be - 1st day it was snail pace 🐌 2nd day tortoise and I guess tomorrow slug! Rubycat fantastic pictures, loving the new computer!
Are you nearly there yet Delly? Supping brushed bubbles already? I hope massage relaxed you for the big drive and you and Sue have a hoot. Helena good luck with the next one and I hope for everywhere but your area to have snow. I think we are due rain or maybe a bit of slush sadly in our bit of Devon, same for you Lily and Dizzy I think? Moijan where are you waiting for snow?. Clair I hope your bit of Somerset keeps clear although think Occ Health could do with a call. Beth, Jane hugs to you too. Actually to everyone and here's to a flush free good night for all of you. Xx

CHarys

 

I cannot remember now but it was either Beth or Lesley who used the word to describe my counting down of my rads, I think it was Beth but apologies Lesley if it was you, and she thought she would get banned for using it, so now I describe the ones that have happened as being tossed and the ones to come as to be tossed Smiley Happy  There was also reference to an oncologist!! as being a pancake maker, which in my niavity I did not know what that meant doh!! and someone sort of explained what it meant in a round about way. Confused? you will be Smiley Happy

Charys, I'm guessing that was a joke? LadyBowler has been tossing since the middle of last week. And not balls either.

No idea Lady H, there are another couple of community threads I've noticed.....benchland is one of them, and 'how's everyone doing' , they seem to have lots of activity.....but don't know if ours has more. I like the fact that people just pop in here, new people all the time and feel welcome when they get here. I'm not saying they don't feel welcome elsewhere, but I haven't 'been' elsewhere to comment lol

 

Rubcay, just called us tossers!!!!!!!! Either she is very rude, or it's an 'in' joke I don't know about!.?

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Evening Rubycat...mine isn't mondors as it hapoens (same as you lots of Internet research as nobody knew lol)....but of course EMJ s could be depending on the position. Mine is too far to one side and not central like Mondors, but it does seem some firm manipulation is the answer with these darned things. Does the REAL Rubycat like snow ?

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Evening fluffies, lots of poorly poppets on here tonight, so love to you all.  Lesley, Charys, Jane - I had Mondor Cords -  (which I self diagnosed as no-one interested/knew what they were Cat Sad), under breast - there is some info on this site, but says they disappear by themselves - NO. Have had a look, but can't find the website now, but remember it said about 'popping' the cords, which I did (was a bit squeamish, but it was ok) and they disappeared. Haven't been back since. Irritates me when the professionals don't know what things are. Grrr.

Moijan - weather report from Salisbury - little bit of rain, no snow (boo hoo).

Clair - you do need to be careful with your work, you could approach Occi Health to reduce hours/change some of the more rumbunctious duties if you wanted.  I know what school is like, and sometimes things kick off and you're in the midst before you even think.... protect yourself.

Oh Lesley, your headaches are the pits.  I've now had 2 days pain free and wish I could send you some too. Saw my handsome physio today, but hiss boo, no touchy feeliness.  He couldn't understand why or how I could move around again, said it should take months for muscles to repair.  However, I shall just take however many painfree days I get and be grateful.  Also had back x-rayed with a delightful guy who was touchy feely and thought I was under 50.  Yeah.  Got the isotope xray now on 23rd to look forward to. As you say, these b appointments never end to they.

Love to Sue for your mammo and to delightful Delly & that you have a lovely time together.

Cat Very Happyxxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Well Jane and Charys, If stretching the answer I'm stuffed!  I can't lift my arm up because of frozen shouldet.  I'll see what they say in Monday.  It's just one thing after another isn't it?

 

My head is thumping, just want to take my strong prescription meds and crawl into bed but I'm waiting for this phone from recently  diagnosed girl to phone for chat/support, been expecting  call since 5pm.  Think she's building herself up to it so don't want to call her or or put her of until tomorrow, can remember what it felt like just hearing those words.

 

Enjoy your Bath Clair.  It's early days yet, sure you'll soon be back in the middle of things.  Take your time, it's a huge step going back to work, you're very brave so give yourself a pat on the back xx

......but yes, I think Clair should have a day off work too...and everybody else......expect Helena who should have her rads and then come home anyway as she finds it too slippery. Ok, we are now not far off 3,000 posts. We got to 2,000 on Christmas Eve was it ? So does that mean we have added nearly a thousand posts in 3 weeks....is that possible ??

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Yyyyyyyyyayyyyy  Lillyyyyy,

 

no if if it snows I shall be out walking and sledging and generally messing about big time. I shall build a snow animal and post a picture here.....IF we get enough. 

 

Oh EMJ,

 

it wont go any further than your waist I don't think, mine never did anyway lol however, I know what you mean about it spreading downwards, as over the course of a few days mine went from quite localised to about 8 inches long. It looked like a piece of tight string sticking out from under the skin.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Sorry to hear some of you are suffering with aches, pains and tiredness today - you all have to have a rest!!

That might be one good thing if it snows - you won't be able to go out. But Helena has to as she has to finish rads - so we'll ask for snow for all areas except where Helena lives and for anyone who really doesn't want it!! I love the pictures of snow people/animals. I hope Delly welly is safely on her way to Sue's and that they have a lovely time. 

I've been out browsing the shops today and I bought my first bunches of daffodils of the year - they're so pretty and really cheered me up. 

We are supposed to get rain and snow tomorrow night according to the forecast so I'll let you know if it happens.

Hope you're all cosy and comfortable this evening xx Lily
