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

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

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

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

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–

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
