Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

So I attended the meeting with my managers at work. Just an Informal chit chat really!! Didn't see what benefit of that Was! Looking at retirn8ng to work late August early September. Visited my team and fook them chocolates.tbey seemed happy to see me and was good to catch up with some of them. However when I looked at them all I could see they are still under pressure and the confirmed nothing has changed since I've been off!! Oh well I'll.be the new girl again as my brain has definitely lost some cells this last 8 month!!! Deep joy!!!!😂😂😂😂💖💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mushy/Alibobs - my job has been at risk for last 18 months and really get what you mean - like you I reckon stress probably plays a huge part. I find out this week what will happen to me and hoping redundancy payout allows me some time out to get fitter and balance out a bit after what can be best described as a roller coaster of a year.  It’s such an unnerving time knowing your job is at risk and such changes hang over you from the minute management communicate it’s happening until you find out what it means to you personally

 

Im having a blood test early Sept and Onco said it was to test for cancer related proteins - watch this space as will get results mid Sept - gulp!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Evening everyone hot and muggy but looks like it could lash down with rain and thunder i love a thunder storm ⛈️ 🌧️🌩️
Well Ali i know how you feel re work ive got my redundancy consultation meeting on Friday looks like its definitely going to go ahead so jobless im beyond gutted bht im pleased i stood my ground and didn't go back when this is happening as it would have been far too stressful im just devastated to be unemployed never been in my life im worrying about the whole looking for a new job process and gutted they couldn't have found anything else for me
I suppose at least i can enjoy the summer but it really is bloody boring having nothing to do so to speak xx enjoy the heatwave i really feel for all of the girls going through their treatment atm i remember when it wa hot last summer when i was having chemo it was uncomfortable so i hope they are all coping with this heat 🌞🌞🌞🌞

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Morning lovelies!! So today I have to have blood tests done. My gp says it's an annual check up to see if I have too much calcium in my blood!! Anyone else had this? I'm on calcium tablets due to taking anastrozole. Never knew you have too much of it!! I'm feeling a bit low today. Got a meeting a work tomorrow with managers always find it daunting. Return to work is looming and it makes me sad!!! Really really wish I didn't have to. Can feel my stress levels rising already. Sure it had a contributory factor in my diagnosis!!! So angry that as a waspi woman I have to work an extra 5 years now b4 I get a pension. Have been robbed by successive governments!!!! Hope you all ok and enjoying this beautiful summer 💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello lovely ladies. Phew, it is hard doing working in this heat. So I went to see the new Mamma Mia movie yesterday and had a great time - thoroughly recommended if you liked the first one. But have a tissue on hand - it gets a bit teary towards the end.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Alibob, Bootleg Beatles sound fab My blue bit is still there after 6.5 months - looks like a bruise, think you may be going for a world record though 😂. @ Shi, I’m great thanks - spent the day at Nottingham’s finest festival Spendour. Some great acts including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Bjorn Again, Marc Almond and Paloma Faith - loving that we are having proper summer, could do with a Club Tropicana pool in the garden though to cool off 🌊🏖

 

Hope everyone else is well and enjoying the Summer ☀️☀️☀️

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hope everyone is keeping well. I'm shattered today! Went to a race night at Pontefract race course last night and saw the Bootleg Beatles perform after. Was a fantastic night out with plenty of bubbly and a lot of boogieing!!!!!! On a different note I still have my blue blob 9 months down the road anyone else?? 💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Shi thank you for asking about my late mum's friend. She has just messaged me to say she has had an ultrasound and they found some small tumours which they consider to be benign. However one is giving cause for concern so she has to have it drained next week?? She is in USA so not sure of their processes. Bless her she had a mastectomy in 1995 and has had a couple of recalls since but is now worried she has BC again.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi all

 

Been off the radar for a bit as returned to work in May 30th wedding anniversary and holiday in June and just had 3 month oncologist appointment 😌

 

Mishy don't return to work if you can manage without . I was expecting the new team to be in place when I returned but instead 2 had resigned and so has my line manager so a very unstable unhappy place . So I just go in do my 50% hours do as little as possible and wait to see what hair  brained scheme the new boss comes up with😞

I even find that hard and I admit I probably returned too soon but as I'm the only earner half pay wasn't an option but as I'm getting new side effects which oncologist things are caused by the Tamoxifen I will stay on reduced hours for another 3 months 

 

On a happy note my hair is starting to really grow although it  is very grey but also quiet wavy 〰 Il always had straight hair 😯😯

 

We had a few days a way in Guernsey for our 30 in a posh hotel so was able to relax and unwind

 

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine🌞🌞👒👒🕶🕶

 

Although the heat isn't helping with the hot flushes

 

Hope you all have a great weekend xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

What a shame about England my return to work has been well and truly scuppered was looking forward to it but to cut a long story short when i went to chat to my boss about going back in June i was hit with the you and all the others whi do your job in the company are having your role dissolved in phase 2 for this so for me not till October right near the end of what should have been the phased return they are offering a different post but its as a care worker!!! How the hell they think i cab do that is beyond me so in order to get my redundancy im niw going to have to stay on the bloody sick there is ni no way im going back to have notbing in 3 months time x

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Feeling kind of sad this evening ladies. I keep in touch with my late Mum's friend who lives in the USA. She had BC 23 years ago. She is now in her 80s and has just had a recall from her annual mammo, she has health insurance there, she now has to go through all the hoops as we did. I just thought after so long she would be fine!! I'm devastated for her especially at her age.😢

How wonderful for you. Go and enjoy every minute of your date!! You deserve to be happy!!good luck 💖💖💖💖
Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Alibobs - it was uncomfortable but it did not hurt. The lady doing the scans was really careful and increased the pressure ever so slightly. She also did my non BC breast first, so I got used to the feel of the machine again. Rest assured I would have told her if it was unbearable! - but it got nowhere near that point.

 

So now the mammogram is done, I can divulge one more thing - I have a date today. First one since I was divorced 6 years ago. Met a chap on holiday in Spain and we have stayed in touch. More nervous about the date than I was about the damn mammogram!!!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Morning ladies of Club Tropicana,💃💃💃💃🌴 my first mammogram is due just before Christmas - found out I had cancer on 22/12 so that made Christmas tough last year. Have asked them to delay until the first week in Jan - Nurse looked shocked that I’d asked but as you say until people walk in our shoes.....Hope all goes well for those waiting for results 🤞🏻Off to sunny Cornwall tomorrow and hoping left bap behaves itself as lots of body boarding planned 🌊

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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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. 💖💖💖
Member

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.
