Glad to hear that your first mammo went ok. A bit of a tip, when I had mine last year I was concerned because it was only 3 weeks before my apt with my oncologist, she tld me that he would have the results within two weeks, so I wonder if it might be worth ringing your oncologist secretary in a couple of weeks to see if they are through if you have not heard by then xxx

Haven’t done the tree yet but my Christmas CDs came out of the cupboard last weekend. My (relatively new) other half looked pretty appalled! We are merging two houses, so we have two lots of Christmas decorations. Suffice to say, I think the house will be looking very festive.
Wishing you all a happy weekend.

Same here it has been pouring down and is very windy since the early hours, thought we had had all we were supposed to get yesterday, they are even forcasting thunder as well, very weird.

It’s not feeling very ‘tropicana’ this morning. The rain is pouring down and the wind is blowing. Time to hunker down with a coffee I think.
Just a quick note to say hello to everyone. Christmas is approaching with alarming speed and I am hoping it will be a much happier Christmas this year versus last year. I have decided to do my bit this year and to that end, I am volunteering in my local Tesco on Saturday to encourage customers to buy an extra item for the local food bank. My way of giving a little something back.
Happy Thursdays to all.

Serenity, I would say listen to your body, when it says no then it means no. I had lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy in Jan (quite minor in comparison to what some ladies have on here) and it’s taken me until now to feel totally up for life, even now if I have an overly busy day then I can get a little sore, day by day it gets easier

i know I need to push myself to exercise but just feel tired most of the time. It’s been just 3 weeks since right side WLE and 1x snlb and 1 xaux node operation and meeting oncologist next Monday to plan 15 radiology sessions in December. I do usually play indoor bowls but apart from that do little else though still work P/t . Do you have any idea when I can start to play bowls again. ( am right handed and have aches in arm and some pins needles in hand I hope that wears off soon with the exercises)

Hi Ladies, so fab that you are all doing well. Busy week for me as it was my birthday so lots of treats and fun. Have started running again so downloaded the Couch to 5k App as starting from zero fitness, it’s hard work though 🏃♀️

I promise I am but also need to push myself a bit as well. I can not believe that it will be 6 weeks on Tuesday since I had my op, I remember thinking how on earth I was going to get through it and how i would cope, well I have and I did, I am amazed how resilient our bodies can be, as long as we listen to them. Girls like everything we have been through there is a bright shining light at the end of that tunnel

Hiya, bowls outdoor do not start until April next year, the season is 6 months long, so I have plenty of time to get fully back up to strength. It will be interesting to see what difference this makes to my bowling in terms of bending and the discomfort I used to be in at the start of the season with my hip, which I had never put down to what was going on inside me with my womb, but now I wonder if it was as the discomfort was getting more and now it has completely gone.
Oh your weekend sounds wonderful and suh a difference from last year xx My friend took me out today to a garden centre and a craft centre, we had breakfast and shopped til we dropped. I am knackered tonight but it is all about building up my strength.
