  • @RobertA Hi Rob, Thanks for your msg! Although it is a day that changed our lives forever, it is now a good day to look back on as I celebrate how we came through it. What could have been really bad, turned out well. Yes, I expect a glass of wine…
  • @RobertA Hi Rob, Rambling?? Never!! 😀 I wholeheartedly agree with you about meeting others who may not have crossed our paths had we not faced cancer. I have met and made friends with some lovely people, even since being here. Although some friend…

  • @KitKat Hi Catherine, Yes, steroids, they do mess you up rather! Sleep patterns change, but also affected by the chemo. I found the steroids the hardest part to take weirdly. I would cry my eyes out like a child having to take them. My own childre…
  • @Jojodot Hi Lorna, Lovely to hear from you, glad you have managed so far, with minimum effects. Let your nurses know what you experience, they can adjust meds if necessary and up your anti-sickness meds too which might help you. I began to lose my …

  • @jinxliving Hi, welcome to the community. I hope you are recovering well after your surgery. After my surgery it took me a very long time to even try and sleep on my back or side. I fashioned a support system, using several pillows to enable me to…

  • @Sunny139 Hi Pauline, It is lovely to hear from you, we can see both your posts ok. Will be thinking of you on Thursday when you see the radiotherapy oncologist, that will be another good thing to put behind you. I have a dexa scan yearly since I …

  • @Anneb , @Rob70 Good evening, good morning! Just finished watching GBBO, always good fun. We realised today, that we mostly love watching cooking/baking shows or murder ones! Lol! 😂 Finally, for the first time in over a week I am not climbing the …

  • @KitKat Hi Catherine, Sending you massive hugs and loads of strong wishes. You are extremely brave, more than you feel right now. Feeling down and weepy is very, very normal. I don't know of anyone who hasn't felt like you do at the moment. Cling …
  • @aritokyo Hi, welcome to our lovely community, so glad you've found us . I am very sorry to hear about your Dad, especially how much he is struggling with the extreme fatigue. I saw you had posted on the @Untire_App thread also, I hope you find the…
  • @kaz01 Hi Kaz, There are a variety of steroids that may be given as part of cancer treatment. They can be used for several reasons, the effects of them can vary also. Many of us have steroids before and during chemo treatments. I have put a link …

  • @KitKat Hi Catherine, Lovely to hear from you, I was just thinking about you too! Oh wow! Such long days for you, and chemo day especially long. I can see the photo, I hadn't seen a cold cap before, looks more like a flying helmet from the old day…

  • @Jojodot @KitKat , Good evening Lorna, Catherine. Must be the day for dentists, I had to go too, except my six monthly check up turned into sorting an abcess out. Now have meds and a root canal to look forward to! Lol! I sincerely hope your visit wa…

  • @RobertA , @Anneb Hi Rob, I can imagine how upset they were. One time we were in Brittany, it rained for two weeks, it was awful. We decided then to venture further south in future, as otherwise we may as well have stayed at home! You can't help b…
