Sorry to hear this mcnulcc,
I know what you mean - we have lost the days of just getting up and getting on with things as we used to. Our new 'normal' is still very odd, where we question every twinge or ache or upset - like you, I have had the odd tummy upset, and I couldn't work out if it's letrozole, or delayed radiotherapy side effects.
Men are nearly always 'practical' about OUR health, but oh boy, when it's their turn, nobody ever suffered like they do - my old man almost seems to turn it into a competition? If I say this or that is troubling me, I then get treated to a resume of all his aches and pains - and to be honest, it's MY TURN NOW !!!
Let it out, do something nice for yourself ( in my case usually stuffing my chops with something bad for me ), and tomorrow will be another day, and hopefully a brighter one. . . .we have a lovely autumn day down here in London. Wish you the best.

I remember when I first posted on here back in November 2016, the ladies used to ring their doorbells or rattle their door knocker for those who finished treatment. I did it for those after me and on several occasions scared teh living daylights out of the postman who caught me doing it
It is strange for a while after you have finished active treatment because you have got so used to the toing and froing of appointments and you do feel a bit lost from time to time but it does get better

I hope you don’t mind me popping in on this thread. I finished my rads nearly 12 weeks ago now. Didn’t get to ring a bell as I’ve had all my treatment in France where I live...however came home and rang the doorbell several times instead!!!😉
Lucaboo you’ve said some lovely things and I think everyone takes comfort from what you've posted. I still feel a little ‘lost’ at times but try not to ‘indulge’ myself too much!! It’s just so lovely to be able to speak with people who have been there too as nobody else quite understands in the same way.
Gill, I too listened to the inspirational ladies on radio 2 yesterday and have listened to some of their podcasts in my early days of diagnosis but now need to catch up with a few more.
Lilacmoon, I’m sending you some hugs all the way from France - hope all is well now.
Take care all you lovelies and thank you for listening to me.
love Rosie xx
