So pleased for you Whytefawn well done
i have two more left had 13/15 and finally with the help of steroids and morphine managed to endure the pain of having my arms in that position !!
Without this and the excellent support from the team and oncologist would not have been able to endure it all
one eve in A&E on morphine for the pain was enough. MRI to investigate what muscles I have pulled
do have less function in my arm but this will get better I'm sure
my skin isn't too bad but redder on the shoulder area SCF area
had a lift today and for the next two days so the whole thing takes 3hours round trip not 6hours soooo pleased
shall even make a trip for a coffee and look at charity shop tomorrow before the zaps
i realise I have false energy on steroids I haven't been able to sleep till so late it will end
but having ME and for all of us I know that once the steroids end I shall be knackered.
good luck to you all as you get through each one -
i started.my rads on Monday staff as ever are brilliant and so far so good. I find the tiredness overwhelming at times but thinks that's mainly from the hormone tablets. I've found I also have low bone density so been given tablets, just one a week, to help,with that. Good luck to all you amazing ladies on herre.
Thanks Cassie...but sadly it’s not 😡 Breathing machine was broken when I got there yesterday so treatment cancelled. Means today is number 14 - assuming the engineer turns up to fix it 🤞 and tomorrow will now be my last. Thought this bit was going too smoothly!
Don’t forget to keep up with the exercises..I was told once a day for 2 years after rads 😳 to avoid any long term problems.
Hope you enjoyed a lie a lie in this morning! Xx
Cassie,don't blame you about not wanting to have a party, not sure I'd want to do that either. A meal's a good idea though, hope you and your husband had a nice time.
Thank you for saying you'll be there to cheer me on, it's appreciated Can't say I'm looking forward to 5-6 weeks of daily hospital visits, but it has to be done! xx
Dont worry I am sure there will be plenty of ladies on here who are starting next week and in May, and we are always here for you xxxx
Woo hoo ringing the doorbell for you tonight, well done thats it, just remember to keep on with your regime for the next couple of weeks
MHaz and Cassie, thank you for your replies-you made me laugh Cassie! I'm signed off until 26th June, but rads might not finish until 12th (I won't know until I go on Monday how many I'm having. I'm down for 23, but the consultant had said 25-30) so was wondering if I'd need more time xx
Thanks Cassie for info and good wishes. I'm a teacher at an infant school, so I haven't been allowed to work (they're too germy!) and have been off since mid Oct. Wouldn't be able to work very easily during rads as my treatment isn't at my local hospital and also a lot of the kids are boob height and can run into you, so could be painful! xx
