well it has been a very long time since i have been on. A lot has happened since then, chemo finished, 6 weeks of radio finished and was such an easy experience. Now it has come to the time of my surgery. I am due to go in to have a mastectomy on the 17th of july.
i haven't been on for a while but i still try to keep up with everyones news. Well it has come to the time when i will have my last ( 7th) chemo next tuesday.
To tell you the truth i never thought this day would come. It has been a rough ride but it has amazed me that i have gotten through this crappy time.
I have spoken to my oncologist and he was happy to report that my tumour has shrunk to a third of its original size so this has been a great result.
just a quick note to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a much better 2012.
i know it's hard to be happy and festive while feeling like poo but i will try to be happy for the sake of my 8 year old who has been so strong and so helpful to me for the past few months.
would also like to say thanks to my fantastic mother who has been my rock through this as she has gone through it not 4 years ago. i don't know what i would do without her.
Good afternoon ladies
I am wondering about second round of chemo which is coming up in 11 days for me. I have heard many stories about the first round being the hardest and that it's easier second time. Is this correct? The reason i want to know is that i am thinking of going back to work maybe 2 days a week but am too scared to plan anything as i am not sure that this is how i will feel after round 2.
Thanks for your help and stay strong
Hope everyone is well. Its been 5 days since my first round of FEC an what an emotional journey it has been.
The first day wasnt that bad. Tired and foggy and hungry ( which was a surprise).Thanks to my wonderful husband i still get up and have a shower everyday ( sort of makes me feel half human). I find that by mid morning i need a nap and that keeps me going till bed time.
