I forgot to say rosietd and Helena, I went back to work in Sept on a Phased Return, so now at the end of my first term! It was very tiring at first, especially as I'm now in a job-share teaching Yr2's, but I'm enjoying it and my stamina is definitely improving! I was worn out by playtime the first week! Smiley Happy xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

rosietd and Helena, thank you for your kind words. Tbh, I'm a bit anxious at the moment, I need your big pants for tomorrow Helena! I'm seeing my chemo onc for the results of the CT scan I had 2wks ago. It was to check if the last bit of cancer had gone after rads, which finished in June! I'm hoping they wouldn't have left me this long if they thought there'd be a problem and my onc said she'd be surprised if there was still anything there, but I'm still feeling nervous about it xx

It was good, lovely to be back in the "real" world and getting back into things again.  I am doing 4 3 hour days this week and then off until 2 January, I am being very good in making sure that I pack up and am ready to leave at 11am every day

Helloooooo Smiley Happy Smiley Happy xx

 

Honestly I am being really sensible workwise, however going out for for dinner one night and then going out for breakfast the next morning is not a good idea!!  My poor tummy is letting me know it is not happy Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

 

Seriously though I am doing well, I have surprised myself sometimes how well I feel.  I am so thankful that I had it done even though I was so upset and anxious about having it done

 

How are you doing my dear?  xxx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Big Friday hugs to everyone from me. I am visiting a friend this morning who has just undergone a full hysterectomy for ovarian cancer and is starting chemo one week before Christmas. There but for the grace of God etc. Etc.

 

Hoping you are all getting into the festive spirit, or at the very least, getting your Christmas preparations done with minimal stress.

 

Much love.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Juliewulie I think i will just wait for the postman. I don't get on with my BCN very well I find her very patronising and not easy to talk to all. Any dealings I had with her always left me in tears and feeling negative about everything so probably best not to contact her. But thanks for the suggestion 💖💖
Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Alibobs

Could you not ring someone to see if they could get your results for you? I was told today it's usually 10 days before a letter is sent out to you but my BCN checked and told me. As you may know I changed my BCN in the last week ( I haven't even met her face to face) but she could tell me everything that's happened to me over the last twelve months. We had a good chat and she put my mind at rest over a few things. Ask me in 6 months though and I'll tell you how I'm feeling! At least now though I feel there's somebody there for me if I need anyone.

 

Helena

I doubt there will be a dry eye in the place ( bowls) tomorrow. I am the youngest there and everyone seems to have taken me under their wing. I too have been through a lot and think this has really knocked me for 6 and my confidence has been rock bottom. That said when I went to work yesterday my manager could not get over how strong I was. I think if anything my diagnosis has made me a stronger person. Not that I would wish this on my worst enemy. 

Sending you hugs too and all the best for work next week.Take Care all and thanks for the support everyone.

I promise you I am not going to overdo things, my boss has even told me that I need to be packing away each day ready to go home 10 minutes before so that I am leaving bang on time. It is going to be a bit weird after having had 3 months off.  I did not even have that length of time off following my bc op.

Sounds a good plan, give yourself a bit of time for you now my friend and think what else you might like to do.  I know when I left my job in 2013 I wanted to work part time and there was no opportunity to do that, I left and got another job a few months later but then my old employer asked me to come back in a different role 25 hours a week and I have never looked back.

 

Stay positive darling, I would say 99% of the time I am absolutely fine, it is only when I get a silly twinge or ache that I drop back but only for the shortest of time. 

 

Mate  I am not brave however it is all about just getting on with it, I must admit life has thrown quite a bit at me over my 60 years but I suppose it helps to build your resilience!! Smiley Happy Smiley Happy xx

 

I would love to be a fly on the wall when you tell the bowlers, I am sure they will be absolutely delighted for you.  Have a wonderful Xmas

 

Sending you hugs

Oh that is fab news and a major relief mate.  Finished work, does that mean you have left your job or retired?

 

Go out now and totally enjoy yourself

 

I am going back to work on Tuesday, only 3 hours a day until after the Xmas holidays and then increasing slowly an hour a day after that, really looking forward to it, I know I am mad!!

Honestly I promise I am going to do no more than the agreed hours and what I do not get done in a day will remain that way, until the next day it is important that I take my time to get back up to full strength again and if that takes time so be it, the last thing I want is to go backwards after everything I have done to get to this point xxx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

I wish I'd said some thing earlier yesterday. She did apologise but my lump was right in the place where she squeezed. I am quite sore today if I'm honest. I'm going to ring my new BCN on Thursday to see if she has the results.
Hope you're feeling well after your op.

Ouch, hopefully you are feeling ok today.  I was the same as Alibobs, when I explained about my bc op the lady adjusted the plates manually apologising as they really need to get a good smooth picture so she did have to squeeze but she was very gentle.

 

So glad to hear that you have finally got a good bcn and already feeling the benefit of her, they make such a difference.  I dont know what I would have done without mine when I was going through all those tests leading up to my hysterctomy, she was golden.

 

I have my second one coming up in April as my first was 18 months after my op.

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
