Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Morning lovelies and how is the snow where you are today? Roads are still clear here but we are due more later. Just about to warm myself up with a FaceTime chat to Australia. So glad Friday went well Ann and Helena we will be there for you too. It does seem such a long time to wait. Keep warm oh fluffy ones and say a sunshine dance to thaw tomorrow xxxx

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Snow report: snow, wot snow?  It's all disappeared now, but not stopping my lazy dayness!

Dizzy, my dentist did know about the jaw thingummybob, but had never seen anyone suffering from it. She did say that it can happen after a tooth is taken out,  and if I ever needed that, she would be aware.  I love my dentist!!!! I followed her when she went into private practice as the NH dentist who took over from her hurt me so badly I had to stop him and wouldn't let him finish. Still makes me wince.

I'm a bit surprised that health professionals aren't better informed about the side effects of our drugs. There must be hundreds of thousands of women who take them. I told the optician that cataracts are one of the side effects of tamoxifen, and he said he hadn't heard of it. So I checked the leaflet in the box and it's listed under the common side effects. So you'd think the dentist would know about the jaw thing.

 

Well it's snowing like crazy here, but so far not settling, the outside temperature is 1.5C and falling. Hope you're all keeping warm.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Hello fluffies, well, the world has gone white again - settling snow has arrived. Cat Frustrated  Ruby has settled herself on the bed and that's where she'll stay for the rest of the day - that's a good idea. Think I will find lots of catch up tv and I've got  Outlander 3 to watch.  Hooray.

LadyH, got myself into a right tiz on my first mammo, but it's just big girl pants time and taking a paracetamol or something just in case. It actually shouldn't be anymore hurtful than you would normally find it.  My first one did hurt but only because I'd just had a seroma drained a couple of days before.  The second one was completely fine. I've also just had my 3rd date for end April, so I shall have to listen to myself.

But it does take you down the path that we've already trodden.   I've had the dentist and opticians recently, and on both occasions got into panic mode when they said ' we'll look at the x-rays now'.  I thought, why, what are they going to show me - must be bad news.  Big relief, no it wasn't. Funnily enough I'd asked the opticians about cataracts (s/e exemestane I think), and although need new glasses for long distance, my short sight has actually improved!  Told dentist about s/e of bifossywhatsits (osteocronosis of jaw - which she said she'd never seen and the tablets rarely led to that) and my bone health has also improved.  Soon I'll be supersonic.Cat Winkxxx

Thank you for that my friend xxx

 

How is your weather.  Have you had any snow yet?  It is incredibly windy and cold here, such a difference from yesterday, thank goodness we did not turn the storage heaters off, told Colin they are staying on now until the end of April.

Re: Progesterone, assorted other hormones and fluffy cake

Oh bless you, Helena. Isnt it funny how the simplest thing suddenly gives you the jitters? But I'm sure once you get it out of the way you'll feel better, it's been a long time for you to wait.

I was really glad mine last year was unscheduled, so I never had a chance to get nervous. And it really wasn't any more uncomfortable, I think it's the thought of all that squishing that's worse.

Oops, sorry, I thought it was the mammogram, should have looked back to check! But two years down is a milestone, nice to tick that one off the calendar.

Hope you are feeling a bit better today my friend

Oh thank you for the heads up about the pots going to google it now to see if there is any places in Birmingham that I can take them.  Really good idea xx

Hi Ladies,

Thank you for kind words.

Good news Ann!

Helena well done for getting shot of plastic pots - did you know that there is a company that recycles them to make bird feeders? I looked on line last year as we didn't know what to do with them and located a bin in the car park at Haskins Garden Center.

Enjoy the sunshne while you can!!

DIzzy

 

I know today is normally not a working day for me, but seems even more like a hollibob day as had a great nights sleep and woke up fresh.  All the windows are open I have dusted and vacced, loving the warmth and sunshine so making the most of it indoors. 

 

The garden is still too squishy to even think about doing anything out there.  Colin has told me to get some more of the clay pots he got me last year so that we can get rid of the plastic ones and replace a really old one that fell victim to the frost this year, so I will doing that next week as well as meeting up with friends for coffee/lunch on a couple of days

 

Fingers crossed the snow stays away or if it does fall it is not a lot.  Know what you mean it is really time now xxxx

Thanks, Dizzy.

Anyway, in & out quite quickly, saw the consultant this time & year 2 now done & dusted, phew 😅 

We just had a brief chat about whether to move onto anastrazole, but as I’m happy to stay on tamoxifen, unless there is a very good reason not to, he was also happy with this, so onwards & upwards!

Ann, hope your appointment went well and wasn't too squishy!

 

Jak, lovely to hear from you, good to hear the knee is being referred, that's been going on such a long time. Getting back to work is not something to rush until you feel better in yourself, changing antidepressants is something you need to take time to adapt to, and not a good time to deal with other stresses as well.

 

Helena, happy first day of your holiday week, I hope you have lots of nice things planned. Weather permitting, I am hoping we don't get a load of snow on Sunday. Normally I like snow, but I think I'm ready for some good spring weather now.
