Starting radiotherapy at long last tomorrow! Feeling a bit apprehensive now though, but I suppose that's normal! xx
Thank you so much, it was a bit nerve racking waiting for the results but oh so lovely when he said it was all clear, my hospital only does the first one 18 months after op, unlike others where it is 12 months, so it has been quite a wait. I will be having them annually now so something to look forward to every April!!
Will be ringing the doorbells for you on Monday mate, yay just no more to and fro every day, that will make such a difference, it was the bit I hated, being controlled by that one apt every day.
Make sure you carry on your regime for a couple of weeks after you finish. and keep up the fluid intake.
Sending you loads of hugs
yes I did have a dexa scan, I received the results by letter 3 weeks after the scan. Had to see my G.P. about it and been given bisphoshonate tablets, just have to take once a week alongside the calcium/vit d tablets. Been advised to see dentist before taking to see if need any dental work doing, I'm going to leave it until my rads are finished, my 1st week is over and just have another 2 weeks left.
Good luck to all you lovely ladies and wish you all a great weekend.Xxxx
I have just been out and rang my doorbell for you finishing treatment, and flipping heck it is wet out there
Yes they recommend that you carry on your regime for two weeks after the rads finish, also carry on with the fluid intake as well as you might still feel the dehydration effects of the rads and it will help with the fatigue.
Well done mate this has been a hard slog for you but another milestone has been reached and can be ticked off. No more back and forward each day
Sending you loads of huggles
Hi Andi all done and dusted, phew 😅 No more holding my breath! I’m pleased to say the whole rads experience wasn’t too awful, didn’t particularly enjoy being exposed and cold on the bed, but it wasn’t for long and the radiographers were very kind.
Was told to keep an eye on my skin for another couple of weeks as it can continue to be affected, but if all is fine after that, I can return to my usual skin care routine. Will be seeing the consultant at that point which will be reassuring.
So keep going ladies, enjoy the weekend off and you’ll soon be there. Good luck to any May ladies too. Xx
