I feel a bit naughty reading the posts on here as I am still having my rads (day 7 of 15 today) but I find it very happy and uplifting. Will be joining the Club officially when I finish my rads if it's ok with you all.
Have a great weekend everybody.
Whaaaahoo Shi great choice in song, Alibob have a great weekend... sounds like you’ll be looking a million dollars
Hiya ladies, just checking in to say Hi! Work has been madness this week and was snuggled in bed watching Netflix by 7.30 last night as very tired. One positive of this journey is that it’s given me a couldn’t care less about work attitude in a good way...I’m taking no prisoners when things need to get done and don’t get so hung up on what people think anymore and that’s before I even hit the tamoxifen 🐉🐉
Booster round of bap zapping has taken effect, odd look with half a nipple being dry - they must have been very exact with their boost lazors is all I’m saying 🌓🎯🤣😂 No other SEs to report 👍
Evening ladies! I'm now officially part of the Club Tropicana gang 🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🛎🛎🛎🛎💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃Last rads was tonight.
Runnerbean looks like we've been on a similar timeline as my journey also began with surgery in August, then we've shared our journey through chemo and rads! I worked through most of my treatment so haven't been signed off. I found work gave me something else to focus on.
Not sure what I'm gong to spend my extra 2-3 hours a day on 🤔Oh I know lounging in Club Tropicana sun lounger with a couple of 🍹🍹🍹🍹😂🤣😂
Runnerbean, you made me 😂🤣😂🤣I keep buying make up. I haven't really bought any in years and the goodies from LGFB will probably last me years but I keep buying lipsticks and face powders I probably won't use as I only really wear mascara and eyeliner 🙄
Juliewulie, this forum is truly brilliant I don't think I could've got through my treatment without the fabulous ladies on our oct chemo thread and Feb rads thread. I'd never posted on a forum before but felt I should to pay forward all the wonderful guidance and help I experienced.
Sorry, bit if a long post 🙄
Evening everyone, had a nice day with mum, took her out for lunch to the garden centre. I didn't buy any plants as I am useless at keeping them, probably because I forget to water them!
Runnerbean, I am like you not back at work until after Easter and then on a phased return. I am getting a bit bored, but have some project work I can do if I get really bored, but have not got that far yet. I do check my emails now and again and clear out all the Rubbish and try to keep on top of what is going on.
I have my moving on appointment on 28th March so will let you know how I get on. Not sure what to expect but hopefully it will be useful.
Just poured myself a large G&T, and now time to watch some trash on TV, cheers everyone 🍹🍹x
Oh I remember that, I would only know that I had put it on by watching myself doing it, it does come back but it can take a couple of months xxx
Shi, glad you're doing the LGFB session. I really enjoyed it. The goodies are lovely and cheer you up after a crappy few months of chemo. Xxx
Spider woman, speaking of deodorant, does anyone else have to look in the mirror to spray in the right place on surgery armpit. My armpit is still completely numb so I can't tell if I've sprayed it in the right place! X
Hi Roma and Mai7, it’s lovely to see new faces at Club Tropicana ⛱🏝, welcome drinks all round 🍸.
Thanks for sharing your blog, it looks good....
Enjoy the time off work, I went back after the op and continued working through rads. The deal was reduced hours but I never seem to escape as early as I should and then feel tired in the evenings and weekends 😴
Runnerbean you make me giggle! I couldn’t stop buying deodorant at the start of rads because nothing worked and now have a range of completely useless scent less brands! Just started showering with scented products again which is lovely, it’s funny the small things you miss during treatment
Morning everyone, hope you all had a good weekend.
It feels a bit strange today as this is the first day of no rads appointments! Was not sure what to do with myself, but have decided to go and see my mum as I haven't seen her for a while.
Not feeling too too bad, a bit itchy but still applying plenty of moisturiser. Have a good day every one ⛱ 🍸xx
Hey Runnerbean hope you are enjoying treatment downtime this weekend and the se’s have been kind. I managed to go to the gym, go shopping in Notts today and for lunch. However did end up in stock room of a well known pizza change on the way back from the loo. I’d like to blame it on the RT but must fess I’m a bit dizzy generally in life 🤣
SueW looking forward to seeing you post treatment - not so long now 🏖
Runnerbean, that made me giggle, the mind boggles as to how you got stuck between the sofa and the coffee table , hope you didn’t spill any of that cocktail during your bap incident 🤣🍸
Juliewulie welcome to Club Tropicana, really glad you have decided to join us and share your bapzapping experiences. Having been on this forum since I started rt, Ive found it a great place to chat to others who are on a similar journey and get what’s occurring. No-ones comments/thoughts are trivial and whilst your journey is very individual to you, it’s great to share experiences....Hope to see you by the pool again soon 🏖
Hi all, it's my first time on here too but have been reading messages since my diagnosis in November.I have been too nervous to comment until now thinking my comments may be "trivial". I had my last bapzapper two weeks ago and like previous comments have been ok but a bit of tanning ( applying lotion regularly though) The last week or so I too have been experiencing stabbing pains and was a tad concerned but am relieved to learn other's have the same.Also a little tender if I happen to knock myself.
I am also attending a Moving Forward Course in a couple of months. i would be interested in hearing from other's who have attended one if possible.
I've made the first step so hopefully will be back on here.
Hey Meesh, got you a prime spot on the sun loungers waiting for you post rads 🏖🌴, looking forward to seeing you on the other side of that bell 🛎🛎🛎🥂🎈
Welcome Alibobs, glad youve joined us, well done you on the walking! I have only been out of the big bap zapper house (loving the name 👍) for 7 days now and it feels great. We are back in control and have the reins to life again, it’s worth singing out loud with our headphones🎧 on, find myself dancing around the house this week - such a good feeling 💃💃
Spiderwoman, I've found you! In theory I'm an interloper as I still have one more Rads session to go on Monday! Just thought I'd come and check out the ☀️ 🌊 and 🌴 at Club Tropicana! Can't wait to be 💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻my way here on Monday!
Thank you for starting this thread, I would suggest that you post a link on the thread where you have been posting previously so that people can see this and join in.

Helloa, Welcome to Club Tropicana, no passport required! 🌴🏖🌴Old friends and new friends welcome.
Ive just finished 20 bouts with RT and thought it would be nice to start a thread for that post treatment time where we can have a giggle, level back out after our crazy journeys, compare recovery notes and give/receive support.......
