Hi all you wonderful ladies,
Firstly my huge apologies to all who have continuously supported me since I first posted for the lack of posts and communication in the last 5 months.
Yes it is 12 months today that I had my ultrasound and fine needle aspiration - in some ways it has gone quickly and in others.....well! I am now doing pretty well and am working 3 days a week ( in a new slightly less stressful position) when the checkups, scans, etc allow me to!
Hi one and all,
Yes I have recovered (well apart from still very little hair, skin rashes and tiredness!) from chemo and was pronounced fit enough to begin radiation this week. First session was Monday and all has gone well - in fact my treatment has been the easy part of the week!
I 'raced' back Monday to take my mother to an appointment with surgeon where our suspicions were confirmed - she has Hodgkins Lymphoma and so about the same time as her 90th birthday next month she will probably have to embark on 6 weeks of radiation!
Hi all you lovely ladies
I know I haven't been very active lately but just had to let you all know that my final chemo (Taxotere) went ahead to day as planned and all's good so far - the dex certainly helps!! Have had a little celebration shop this afternoon and will wait till this time next week (if I pick up at same rate as last time) when can celebrate with a wine or few!
I hope you are all travelling as well as possible and I do think of you and read your blogs often.
Take care all, Dette xxoo
Hi fellow pink ladies,
It's been a long time - won't bore you with the details!!
Well I'm now half way through chemo, Fec is all done and wow I do really think I have been lucky as far as side-effects go. Yes the hair loss is well and truly complete (pleased the tender head was short lived) and I am definitely slowing down a little more after each treatment, but have had no nausea/ vomiting and manageable back/bone pain after dose 1(when I had the extra neupogen injections).
