I too have had stomach issues. Prescribed an acid reducer. I get heartburn, acid reflux, bloating and just flat out upset stomach. I’m on so many meds, I decided to skip this pill and listen to my body. I now know what upsets my tummy, causes reactions and eat much less. I have lost 45 pounds since listening to my body and feel much better. I rarely have to take anything, only feeling bad if I ignore my body talk. Hope this helps.
Hi Rich's wife. It must be very sad knowing he can't cuddle his grandchildren. Sad for the grandchildren as well, as they won't understand why. But hopefully the seeds will have done their job and I am sure Richard will be able to give them lots more cuddles to make up for the times he has been unable too.
Cancer treatment seems to come at a price for everyone in different ways. But he obviously has a very loving family to support him.
Peace and love to you both.
Love Julie 🤗 x
That is really terrific news! I think that will put a smile on all our faces as it is always wonderful to hear such a story. Good luck with your last chemo coming up and take care of yourself.
Hi @Jaro44, how lovely to receive a message from your granddaughter like that. Arriving at the right moment you needed to hear something good to lift your spirits. I am not surprised you were emotional, I think I would be too!
I hope you have had a better weekend since then.
How wonderful it is to hear your good news! Especially after your initial diagnosis, to find yourself in a much better position and prognosis is very encouraging for you I am sure.
We always love to hear any good news here, as you will see from all the messages! It definitely causes us to smile and rejoice with you. I hope your recovery from surgery is going well and that you are managing to get through chemo ok.
Looking forward to chatting with you both again soon. You will soon get to know us and you will find a lot of support and friendship here.
Hi Kirsty. Having surgery and spending Christmas in hospital would not normally be something to celebrate, but your news is brilliant and I am delighted for you.
I am pleased that you have found our lovely Community. We love to chat, support and encourage each other and best of all, to share and celebrate good news together. You have certainly made me smile today.
What fantastic news. I hear so many stories like yours. The doctors are not always right and we are all unique.
Not too far away now before your last chemo.
May your health go from strength to strength.
Your story certainly put a smile on my face as well.
Goodness 18 is a lot but you’re over half way, that’s incredible, just keep crossing through the calendar every cycle rather then think of the weeks ahead.
I am 33 and had surgery in December 2019 for Breast cancer and commenced chemo in Jan.
Had my 2nd chemo last Thursday and have 4 more before I start radiotherapy for a month.
I have a few things plotted in the diary for when I’m through my treatment, a relaxing weekend in Dartmoor with my amazing hubby and my scrumptious dog (crazy springer!) and then a once in a lifetime trip to Florida with my hubby and step sons.
Yes I could cancel my Orlando trip and think about the money I am not currently earning the week commencing treatments (I’m self employed) but I’m going through all this so that I can live and be here for my loved ones, so what better way then to create magical memories!
If you haven’t got anything booked, even a night away for some normality, then get it booked. This is part of survival and gives us something to look forward to when we have darker days..
I wish you all the very best.. you’ve got this my love x
Awesome news! That is really great to hear that already you are seeing a positive impact of the treatment on the cancer. It is very encouraging and I am sure you must feel very relieved it is working. You are moving in the right direction!😊
It is good you have found a variety of headgear to wear, it does help, even if just to help keep you warmer!
I am really glad for you that this latest round is going smoothly too, you just keep on keeping on! We are all here for you, anytime you need us!😊
Have a restful weekend,
O I love this conversation!
Hi Af21 I have never seen such a fine Hamster as Alan! He is gorgeous. His meal looks lovely and fresh, very appetising!
Julie what colour is your Rabbit? We all tend to spoil our pets don’t we? Our friends used to to have a large white rabbit called Snowy who came to stay with us when our friends went on holiday. He used to love to play with a large football. Very cute.
Hi Rob, thank you, he is a lovely boy! He makes us laugh with some of his funny little habits. Nice to hear from you again, hope you are feeling better than you were. What can Mary mean? Pest? Surely not! 😂
Hi Lou, aww Charlie is so lovely! Very cute your little helper! Reminds me of when our cat Alfie used to catch our daughter Amber’s pen as she was doing her homework! They are so funny aren’t they? We used to leave the hosepipe running to top the pond up and she would hold it and look like a fireman with a hose! Was so funny. Will see if I can find the picture! We lost her aged 15 to the big C! She was a character! My brother said o yes its a boy, the vet said nooo its a girl! The kids loved the name so it stuck! A girl called Alfie!
Take care folks have a peaceful night.
love Jackie 🙋♀️X
