Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mishy mine took over 4 weeks last year, surgeon was off sick then on holiday and no one else could write them up apparently, and they couldn't possibly tell me any news about myself over the phone, heaven forbid!! And although I was reassured that this wouldn't happen again this year and I would definitely get them within 14 days they still took 19 🙄 I'm sure all will be well but that's not the point, think they should have to walk a day in our shoes then things may be different Xx Jo

Evening ladies pleased to hear mammo went well my results from mine still not back ywt its nearly 4 weeks must be fine but still not the point xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

May I ask if the mammo was painful? I'm not due one until November but it makes me cringe just thinking about it after all we have been through. I wish you the very best result. 💖💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mammograms done. Now we wait. They have scheduled an appointment for me with my surgeon as he gets the results (rather than them sending me a letter). Next Tuesday at 6.15pm is when I will see him, so just got to wait until then.

 

Surprisingly emotional. I guess it brings it all back, especially as these are my first mammograms since diagnosis.

 

Huge thanks to all you lovely ladies for your support - it means a great deal.

That’s so kind of you all. Appointment is at 2.30pm so trying to fill the time between now and then with my work - but failing miserably at the moment! I will update later.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I was diagnosed in October 2016 and have used the services Penny Brohn offer throughout my treatment and beyond. I’m lucky enough to only be 20 min drive from their national centre. So through my chemo and rads I went to the weekly yoga class and I’ve done both the Living Well course and the Approach. They certainly helped me overcome a huge psychological barrier I had with coming to terms with my diagnosis. I hope you enjoy you’re time there.

Sorry - that should have been Penny Brohn. My iPad spell checker could not cope with that!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

A quick weekend hello to the lovely ladies who were going through this journey at the same time as me (and indeed everyone else). My first annual mammograms are scheduled for the week after next - wow, one year on already. How the heck did that happen?

 

I am currently on a 6 week break from Anastrozole - alas had some significant side effects which did not improve, so back at the oncologist on Monday to get me sorted out. Everyone reacts differently so I am hoping a new tablet will help. Otherwise I find it is the psychological barriers which are hardest to address. I am heading to the Penny Brown centre in Bristol in early July - their work sounds really holistic and supportive, so hoping that will help.

Honestly you are still early days after active treatment it does get better, one day you will suddenly realised that you have done more than you had been and it is the realisation that you have turned the corner.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Sillyb, I started on Tamoxifen at Easter. I take it before I go to bed and have no ill effects on it.  I was dreading starting it and have been pleasantly surprised 

 

Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Take your time Jencat. I found one of the hardest times to be when the active treatment ended or at least slowed down. You suddenly feel very on your own (although of course you aren’t because the medical team are always there if you need them). I also had a lot of fatigue, which was my body telling me to slow down. I worked through all my treatment, so I guess it was always going to hit me at some point.

 

But how time flies. I have just received my appointment letter for my first annual mammogram. Wow, one year on already.

 

Sending you big hugs.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello Rosie Smiley Happy So sorry I've been meaning to answer your pm. How are you, hope you're ok?

I finished 61/2 weeks of rads on Tuesday! In a funny sort of way I was quite sad to finish as it gave me a bit of security! My head is telling me I can do more than I really can, still haven't got much stamina yet, but it's early days and I think I'm trying to run before I can walk! xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I finished my treatment on Wednesday.  Started taking the oestrogen inhibitor and Vitamin D/calcium yesterday, only 4 years 363 days to go.  Can anyone tell me if they have had any side effects.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Ha ha Mishy18, great post! Loved the Kylie at 50 programme. Really hit a note for me when she said she was open about it, I always take the time to explain to people what’s happened (if they are interested) as it could mean thto difference between getting something odd checked out sooner rather than later. 

 

To Alibobs and Jobey, I  hope you have/had fantastic birthdays 💃🥂🎉💐

I would definitely have a word with your manager, I am assuming you are on a phased return to work at least, you are covered by the Equality Act 2010 and they have to make reasonable measures to look after your health and wellbeing.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Thanks for your reply otter65. Sorry you are having a tough time at work. Are you having regular reviews with your manager? They really must make adjustments and allowances for you when you have been through something like we have! Must admit I am dreading it! Have pre warned my hubby if i cannot settle when i return I may even reduce my working days down to 2 a week until I retire!!! Wish I could win the lottery!!🤞🤞 hope things improve for you Otter65 xx❤❤

Hi Alibobs

 

I would agree stay off work as long as you can I've been back morning only for 3 weeks and I wish I hadn't as just getting so tired and stressed out with all the changes that have happened but also that they are already expecting me to be back to full strength and already drowning in work but don't really know what to do as going back off seems to be defective😞😞😞😱😱

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill
