Oh mate I can really assure you that there a light and it is starting to shine brighter fat the end of that tunnel for you now.
I am now 2 years post op and 22 months post rads finishing, life really has gone back to normal but with a greater appreciation about what I have been through and my priorities in life xxx
Done an airport run today as mum has flown home, it was quite a journey as it was pouring down the whole way, tired but again another milestone reached as it is a round trip of about 35 miles, which would not have been a problem prior to my hysterectomy!!
Sending you hugs

That is good news and is obviously going to help your overall wellbeing.
Yep totally agree still would be worth going to your appointment, at the end of the day mate, if it is not for you, you dont have to go back but you need to find that out first.
I am doing really well, I was out last night with a few of the girls from work at one of their homes, it was wonderful, had a late night and didnt get home until midnight, I slept for 7 straight hours which is something I have not done for months so it really did me the world of good. Had my apt with GP and am returning to work on 11 December albeit on a very reduced hours phased return which I am really looking forward to, I am ready and need to get back into the real world again.

I'm sooooo excited! 2 weeks since completing 15 days of radiotherapy I've been discharged and told I'm cancer free. I will need to go for a mammogram annually and a bone desity scan in 2 years as I have Osteopoenia and need more weight bearing exercise and medication. I already do 10,000+steps a day! I even cycled to radiotherapy each day.
Anyway good luck to everyone at the start or even part way through your journey. I was only diagnosed on August 2nd, lumpectomy on August 29 and now out the other end.
I'm still an emotional wreck at times, but hoping going back to work will help.

Congratulations on finishing yoru rads. As your team have advised you the next couple of weeks you will need to keep up your regime as you will still be feeling the effects, and I found especially making sure that I kept up my fluid intake.
Ringing the bell for you tomight as well.

hi ladies hope you are all doing ok. Today I rang the bell, 20 sessions completed, my lovely radiotherapy team cheering me on they have been brilliant. Been told that I still have to moisturize and watch my skin but it's been fine up to yet, just a tender nipple and odd stabbing pains which I have been told are normal, hopefully I won't have any problems but time will tell. Good luck to all having treatment this month it does seem never-ending but it's surprising how quick it goes, Fezzy x

Hi, I have been prescribed some Mepiplex pads to put under breast but has anyone used any gels or creams on the blistered areas? Or should I just keep it dry? I will ask the radiotherapy nurse but just wondered what your experiences were. Thanks
