Hi spider woman, have you spoken to your local Macmillan and also ruby bcc, they should be able to give you a few pointers ❀️❀️We’ll have to do a coffee soon if you want, pm me if you have a Saturday lunchtime free. Sorry to hear you are being made redundant, speak to Macmillan and bcc about this too, I’m not sure how the law works, but they will know. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨Shi xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello Ladies around the pool, so being made redundant at end of March (not a problem, great opportunity to get off the hamster wheel). Was fortunate to have group health insurance with job and was paying an ok premium. Just searching for future cover,  current provider for  cover now asking for Β£400 per month 😱 and other companies will cover me for anything but my pre existing conditions - anyone struggling with the same and any suggestions?

I am wondering how they will show Jenny having chemo. I thought they got her in fast too. Yes what about the lymph nodes being removed and the exercises. Maybe we will see more in the weeks to come. x

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Shi I did hear that the actress who plays Jenny said she wanted the programme to be true to life and factual. It's a shame they couldn't make more of an effort because maybe the shock factor might encourage even more people to self check. Like you say let's hope its done some good anyway. Ps loved whitney Houston although I'm not on the mood for dancing as just find out my bonus this year has been vetoed .....because I was off sick for 9 months....i had cancer fgs!! No end to it is there!!

Hi Alibobs, I heard about it, it’s frustrating but they probably don’t want to 😳😳😳people, I hope that if nothing else ladies watching it will start checking themselves regularly, and look at it that was, if it saves one life it’s not been a wasted story line,even if it’s been a bit film flam. Paula Ann bland who was in Grange Hill back in the day has had a triple neg diagnosis and was in Sunday express at the weekend. She’s had op and is looking at chemo and rads now, Paula if you do find the bccf please know we are here πŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘­and keep πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ and a big thank you for raising awareness in the national press by telling your story and using your celebrity to make the press run the story on you. A good book that I found helped after my tn diagnosis is Patricia prijatel, surviving tnbc. 😘😘 ❀️❀️❀️To everyone in club Tropicana and tune in the jukebox today is I wanna dance with somebody - Whitney Houston πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ•ΊπŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨Shi xx

Hi anyone else watching cold feet? What a crock that turned out to be!! Jennifer had breast cancer and has had her lumpectomy Op. No mention of painful biopsies, radioactive injection, guidwire insertion, lymph node removal!! And she stayed in overnight and was taken down to theatre in a wheelchair!!wish they would have asked me for a true life story!!!  Looks like a doddle to anyone watching!!!

My boob is still blue and its nearly 10 months. Hope its not permanant. Don't think the rads has changed the size but it has only been a week or two. x

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi everyone hope you are all well. I'm not sure about this new look BCC site!! It's not as easy to navigate and to see the latest updates. I'm just giving it a whirl to see if it works!! Went to hairdressers yesterday and she remarked on how dry my hair had become.😯 I'm putting it down to anastrozole. It's gone really thin too so today I've been out and about some coconut oil products she recommends to put the moisture back in. Feel a bit fed up with myself. Cold, tired and achy. Had a walk thought it might lift my mood but it really hasn't. Think I just need to see some better weather. Ps still have my blue blob and its 14 months since I had my op!!!! A year since rads and my treated boob has deffo shrunk compared with the other!! Still getting twangs and sharp pains too. Anyway looking forward not back!! Roll on summertime!!πŸ’–πŸ’–

Hi Linda welcome to the club!!! Well done!!! I believe as mine was your appointment will be with your oncologist. It's a great feeling when you end treatment are you taking any tablets? πŸ’–πŸ’–
