Re: October 2018 Radiotherapy

I know what you mean Susan about radiotherapy. I was getting a bit panicky today but I think it's everything else I've got going on. The treatment itself is quick and painless. It probably is your thyroid and maybe if your stressed it's affecting your levels. Good luck ❤and let me know how you get on. Jo xxx

Re: October 2018 Radiotherapy

Hi JWD
Off you go again lol count the days down.
Good Luck. ❤

I had a bit of a melt down today really didnt want to start rads at all. Had a tearful chat with my Sister but came to my senses in the end.
I'm not sure if my thyroid is acting up as that makes me tearful and I've slight tremours in hands another sign.
I get blood test results tomorrow so will see.

Isn't all this fun if it isn't one thing it's another.

Take care Susan 💟

Re: October 2018 Radiotherapy

Evening ladies
What an awful day today has been. My implant has got bigger since planning scan. So I've had to have planning scan again and will start rads from scratch.
We got results for my husband today his cancer has returned in the oesophagus and gone in lymph nodes and liver.. he's to start chemo soon for 3 months then a scan. I can't believe this is happening.
Have a good weekend everyone.xxx

Re: October 2018 Radiotherapy

Hi ktk

 

Nice to hear from you, - and it will be great when this last bit is done and dusted, you’ve had a long way to go...As for bisphosphonates, I’m still waiting on the verdict as to whether I will need them, there’s a massive delay on DEXA scan results at our place...been waiting nearly 10 weeks now !

Ah well, contending with Letrozole is enough for me at the mo ! 

 

Take care xx

Thanks for the message Thistle. Glad you are ok. I’m looking forward to this all being over, although I do still have bisphosphonates for a couple of years.

Well done wombat woo on finishing rads🤗💪
Susan they are not sure about seroma. When I went last friday to see my oncologist she checked my implant and put a needle in to aspirate any fluid and she was pleased to say there wasn't any. However on 3rd day of rads there was a change when they tried to set me up in the right position so I'm not sure what's going on. I will see what they say today.xx

Re: October 2018 Radiotherapy

Hello ladies. I have just popped over from September Rads thread to say hi. I finished today and rang the bell loud and clear. The lovely ladies on the forum helped me a lot so if any of you have any questions please ask away !

My main advice would be to drink your water - it really helps with the fatigue and moisturise !!! Lots. Also if you have any issues don’t be worried about talking to your radiotherapists they have heard it all before. My girls and boys were really great and offered advice and reassurance when I needed it .... they gave me cooling pads when it all got a bit warm towards the end... you can all get through this and come out the other end... oh and by the way in all my sessions I still haven’t found an elegant way to get on or off the bed 🤗 & 😘 to you all.

They told me that I should not apply craem no less than two hours before a session, what I used to do is take some with me so that I could apply it immediately after each session
