Hi feenix glad to hear you are up and about, does you good to go out for a stroll I find. I have a lovely vintage style bike and I enjoy biking although haven't done much lately, that's a lovely thing to do and get a new car, good to make plans.
CDC my duff days are 3 days after steroids too, which is always a weekend for me which sucks!
We must all meet up after this roller coaster ends... Be fab to meet you all in person.

Kip is right Michelle... you’ll still be in touch with OH on your op day. Sending a hug.
Im not too bad Kip... bit up and down but better today. Doing exercises.. I’ve had plenty of practise !! Waiting for results now .. hoping there’ll be nothing unexpected and I can get my head in gear (totally wiped out yoyoing about recon and final histology) ... after that get a bit fitter and reconsider what I want, or not !!! Planning to get myself a new bike and get pedalling... better get a bike hat too. Think the time is right to get another car after all that test driving we’ve done since diagnosis. Just been for walk along promenade and it’s quite warm tonight so expect you’ll be sweltering further south.

Michelle if it's any help on my day of surgery I was back from theatre in a couple of hours and home in 6 from moment of arrival al, but on the ward I was texting and chatting and walking around so you'll hopefully be able to at least direct your husband should he require help.
feenix how are you doing?

Hope you’re all having a decent day.
overcast here... bit cooler which is good.
Hope you manage a run Michelle
I’ve been to Brighton years ago when OH worked in London... pebbly beach... nice place... probably much more busy now. I think we drove down for the day.
Clare ... how are you today ?
Kip ... hope you’re doing ok today

Michelle , great you’ve done your run.... very emotional time. I’m hoping results will be back 3 weeks. Didn’t expect more out... if all well then I won’t be having more treatment and can then decide what I want to do. I’ve even started to let my hair grow ... I had it chopped off at the beginning and kept it short , just in case. I was more prepared for chemo than surgery !!! At least I know my cancer recurrence is as low as it possibly can be at this moment in time.
Clare ... sorry you’ve been feeling down... hope that won’t last long ... getting the meds balance right must be really difficult. It’s good you know you’ll get better though and have something to look forward to with OH and daughter.
I do feel for you lasses going through chemo but nearly half way through 🤞 💪 💪
This time next year will definitely be done and dusted.... we’ll all have to have a celebratory get together in the big smokey 😊 🍸 🍻
Kip... you’re doing well with walk ... good destination. I was in overnight, BP a bit low, drain out next day. Easy recovery considering. Need to keep up with exercises. I see Michelle had good advice about T
I think it’s going to be cooler, soon 😊
Ive not seen anything from Jazza or Bridget. Just know Jazza was waiting for results after her third op... hope all is well.

Hi Feenix so glad you are doing well, did you get home on the same day? I start T on 13th Aug so got one more week to go. Just want the chemo over.
Michelle well done on the park run, I walked 2 miles to pub and back last night and it was fab, no TV as marathon but it's something.

What great news Michelle .... so pleased for you. Your surgery will be fine. I’m ok post op. I had a couple more nodes sent so awaiting histology....again. Off to seaside for a walk. I really need to get some more weight off and get fit
Kip... hope it gets cooler soon. When do you start T?
Clare .... hope you’re doing ok

Hi I michelle that's fabulous news for you and at least lets us see that the chemo really does do its job! I haven't had node clearance yet I'm probably having it after chemo and before rads. You'll be able to let me know what it's like. I finish chemo on we sept. Can't wait as getting worried about the T part.
Feenix.. thinking of you xxx
Love to all.. another hot day here in Suffolk so lazing around with breeze in my baldie XX .Kip

I try to be Kip ... not done them today though. That’s a good way to decide your own queries. Its always difficult to decide without a strategy. It does make sense though. They must be on a par with risks and effectiveness as wouldn’t be given as a choice. Know someone who had rads but think she just didn’t want more surgery, but she did research the risks of both. she has some upper arm pain but it’s manageable... says it’s like someone has punched her. It’s the deciding but sounds like you’re nearly there with it.
Like that you can easily check your scar area... it must be really improved now. It was something that crossed my mind.
