Carolyn, you have such a lovely sense of humour with all you have to cope with . I did have brain rads and I must admit to "going along with it" and not putting much thought into the implications. Looking back I should probably been more questioning. Still its done now, I just wanted them to make it go away !! I hope you are having a nice day and managing lots of on line shopping treats for yourself and family .
Hugs and positive thoughts as we wait our results xx
Hi Carolyn, it sounds like we were scan twins last night ! I still panick after a scan even after 3 years of it. I will now be a hopeless case until results day . I really need to keep it together so I don’t ruin Christmas for my family, I just worry about getting stocking presents muddled up and wrong labels on parcels. I suppose it’s keeping my mind busy . I hope you don’t mind me asking but do you get many side effects from your brain mets ? X
Caroline my scan is at 6 as well. I will be sending you positive vibes. I really think a scan results ban should be enforced in December!, I always get December flaky brain without this added stress. Good luck tomorrow x
Hi Cape Ladies,
So glad to hear that on a whole you are all managing well on cape and getting good results and good luck Carolyn for your scan on the 8th.
I am now on my 6th round of cape which I have found very easy to tolerate and none of the side effects that I was expecting. I have a scan tomorrow, which is the first one since starting on this chemo.
My worry that is keeping me awake at the minute is that I have just found a few lumps in my neck, I am sure that they haven't always been there and have just recently developed. Do you think this will be an indication that the Cape is not working on other mets ? The constant worrying is really getting me down. If the cancer has spread to neck lymp glands/nodes can they be treated from anyones experience ?
Big hugs to everyone waiting for results and feeling poorly xx
After my initial melt down that having spent the whole Summer on Docetaxel for a splattering of liver mets (onc’s words!) only to find by 1st October liver Mets had spread extensively through my liver, I am at last calming down! ( well a bit anyway). I also requested a Chang ego oncologist as I’d been with same one since primary in 2005.
for the last couple of months I’ve felt so lethargic and unwell, on so many pills and potions I haven’t managed to do much but today I’ve turned the corner.
LOTS OF POSITIVE thoughts from my lovely family and friends as I join n the CAPE CRUSADE! so this morning ive popped my first “peachy pills” as Carolyn calls them.
im hoping for not too many side effects but I seem to be having quite a biggish dose. 2150g x 2 a day? I weigh about 10 stone. So not sure if that’s why!
Im also waiting for the results of liver biopsy from last Thursday. Very surprisingly I found this quite painless! A night in hospital to recover but no discomfort from site.
Please any advice help on cape would be appreciated, Ive been booked for 3 cycles then scan, so hopeing that it works well for me.
Good luck to all other cape crusaders. I’m going to be busy today wrapping all those internet xmas presents that it’s all to easy to buy when your sat at home!
Fairies and elves seem to have decorated my house already!!
hi Carolyn, i agree with you about the grandchilden they really take your mind off...
i had no joy with e/e either and with everything else failing they are suggesting cape so i was glad to find this thread thanks to our late friend Moijan.
i hope you are feeling better now i missed you when you were off line.
hugs Ramade x
