  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou, Thank you for the hugs, I had a picc line last time and I would definitely recommend them to anyone starting treatment. It just makes the process easier I feel, not looking forward to the weekly trips to the hospital for the picc care, mind you in the current situation of shielding, it's nice for a…
  • Hi all, just thought I'd check in and let you know that I am starting chemo this coming Monday, I have an appointment on Friday for a picc line, that's going to make sleeping a tad difficult as the line will be in my left arm and my surgery was on my right side! It'll be interesting that's for sure 😊 Stay safe xx
  • Hi Liz, Thank you. I will be starting chemo in about 3 weeks, currently the treatment plan is a couple rounds of EC (2 to 3) then weekly Paclitaxel with herceptin, I've had EC before and herceptin but not the Paclitaxel, I'm a little worried about that one as for me it's the unknown, I belong on another forum (Mummy's…
  • Hi all, I will be having a telephone consultation with my original oncologist tomorrow (Wednesday) but as I've just received a call from the cardiology department for an echocardiogram, I'm going to assume that chemo is what is going to happen next. I know it's wrong to assume but given the fact that a echocardiogram has…
  • Hi all, Just had my follow up appointment with the surgery team, they are pleased to report that they got all the cancer and the 1 node which they found and tested was clear. Will I need chemo again? Well that's in the hands of the oncologist as they will discuss the benefits and negatives of having it again! It was HER2+…
  • Hi All, Update, so had the op a week ago today, I was being done as a day case but ended up having to stay in overnight, they didn't like my heart rate after surgery, too fast for no obvious reason, that and I was still really sleepy! As far as I know the op went well, they managed to find a node to test so that's better…
  • Thank you all for your kind words, I will update as and when I can xx
  • Hi Lou, Yes single mastectomy as it's my only option now because of the treatment I had last time, wanted immediate reconstruction but that's not an option with the current situation as it has more potential for complications and adding extra pressure to an already stretched NHS, so delayed reconstruction it is, not what I…
  • I had my follow up yesterday and the scan results were fine with exception of a 3mm nodule on my lower right lung it could be nothing or could be something! I will be having a rescan sometime in July when hopefully this virus situation is a little easier. On the plus side my surgeon has managed to get me in for surgery…
  • Hi all, my name's is Vicky, I am a 2 time cancer survivor at the grand age of 42! I was first diagnosed in 2007 with a high grade synovial sarcoma in my right forearm, this was a complete shock and came just before my first born's 1st birthday, I was the first of my family to have cancer! Fast forward 11years to June 2018…
  • Hi, I was diagnosed with a high grade synovial sarcoma in 2007 in my right forearm, I had 25 fractions of radiotherapy followed by surgery (my scar is from my elbow almost to my wrist), I had shared care between my local hospital where I had my radiotherapy but saw my main consultant Mr Briggs at Stanmore (orthopaedic…
