Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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 πŸ‰πŸ‰

 

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 πŸŒ“πŸŽ―πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ No other SEs to report πŸ‘

Hi Meesh, I know what you mean about nights out coming all at once. I’m out Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. More than I would usually do in a month! Need to make the most of it though while I’m still off work. Hope everyone else is ok and just relaxing and taking it easy xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Shi, I saw that. What a lovely poem. I'm making the most of being finished. I went out for dinner last night, I'm pub quizzing tonight and then out for dinner Thursday & Friday. Can't remember the last time I went out for the evening and now I'm doing 4 nights on the trot! πŸ˜‚

Have all you ladies fallen asleep 😴 in your sun loungers β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸΉπŸΉβ›±πŸπŸ– Hope you're wearing your high neck t shirts! πŸ˜‚

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi ladies day 13 out of the 'big bapzapper house!! Today I've been tackling the garden a bit as it's quite nice out there and Bern for an hours walk! Definitely can see where the radiotherapy was given now as my skin in that area is definitely more tanned than before!! Lots of moisturising still going on few itchy nip moments!!! Feeling on generally. Off to the madness that is Benidorm on Friday to celebrate st Patrick's day for the weekend with 4 of my girlfriends!! Can't wait to just let our hair down a bit and have a laugh!! Meeting up with my youngest son who is also going for the weekend with some friends! To be sure!!!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Meesh you made it to club Tropicana, time to pull up your sun lounger grab a cocktail and chill for a while. There have been times when I felt the journey would never end but here we are we did it!!! Now I just need to get the thought the sofa needs new cushions out of my head before I go out tomorrow and buy 10 new ones, it seems one or two of things isn’t enough now! xx

Evening ladies! I'm now officially part of the Club Tropicana gang πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸ›ŽπŸ›ŽπŸ›ŽπŸ›ŽπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ’ƒLast 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 πŸ€”Oh I know lounging in Club Tropicana sun lounger with a couple of πŸΉπŸΉπŸΉπŸΉπŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

 

Runnerbean, you made me πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£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 πŸ™„

 

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 πŸ™„

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Shi you will love your LGFB next week, I got loads of stuff and still haven’t managed to use all of it. Mai what a brilliant blog, I wish I was able to put things down in words like that but it’s not one of my skills. Hi Julie, all comments are welcome trivial or not. Glad your treatment is done and you made it to club Tropicana 🍹🍸🍾I am waiting for a date for my moving forward course so don’t really know what it entails yet.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Roma and Mai7, it’s lovely to see new faces at Club Tropicana β›±πŸ, 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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Roma, it’s an odd feeling to not have any appointments isn’t it. I still have a couple of weeks off work and then it’s a phased return so I am getting bored now. I keep buying houseplants for some reason, I really have no explanation for it but every room now has at least one plant! xx
Member

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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 β›± 🍸xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Well hello Club Tropicana Ladies! Shi invited me over from the May thread. Shi and I met at my last and her first chemo and have been friends ever since. 😘 I had my last rads 11th January so well along the post apocalyptic experience now. I've written a blog, so here is my story: http://lifeafterlola.blogspot.co.uk

I hope you find some comfort from it. Xxx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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 πŸ–

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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  πŸ€£πŸΈ

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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 πŸ–

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi all, made it to club Tropicana after a long road which started in August. Surgery βœ… chemo βœ… radiotherapy βœ… all done and time to relax on my sun lounger with a nice cocktail I think. Few stabbing pains for me as well but nothing major so fingers crossed I can start to heal now. On a lighter note I got stuck between the coffee table and couch today and my husband tried to help me up by grabbing me under my sore arm and across my boob. He had no idea why I started screaming. Don’t think he will be helping me again! xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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 πŸ‘) 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 πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi hope it's ok for me to join you all here. 9 days since I left the big bapzapper house!!! Skin not bad at all just a little tanned but awful lot of stabbing pains going on inside!! Popping ibuprofen! Walking a log and living it!! Might even join a walking club for company as my hubby has a bad leg and can't join me. I am doing about 4 miles a day now around my local area. Pull in my walking boots and put my Bluetooth ear phones in and listen to my music. Takes me away from everything!!! Have to refrain from singing along sometimes as get funny looks from other people!!πŸ˜‚

Helloa, Welcome to Club Tropicana, no passport required! πŸŒ΄πŸ–πŸŒ΄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.......
