  • @Brightstar Hi J, Ahhh, I love your photo of Alfie! He is gorgeous! We grew up with rabbits at home too, lots of them! We did bring them inside, but they were housed in hutches. We loved them, but didn't like the task of catching them when they es…

  • @juliecreative Hi Julie, Welcome to our lovely community, I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis, I haven't heard of this, do you mean the drs are unable to find a primary source? I hope you are managing with the chemo, how many days in are y…
  • @jacksprat_x1 Hi Jackie, I love reading your positive posts, conversations like the one you had with your oncologist are just brilliant. I hope your good days, outnumber your bad days more and more as you put this behind you. I am sure others read…
  • @PositiveLady10 , Good morning Barbara, You made me laugh reading your story of buying your wig! I can really picture it! haha! 😄Terrible as it all was, I know how having those precious moments of laughter, can carry you through several days. I wa…
  • @Shands So glad you found us here Sue, I am sure you will get to know others soon too. The chemo nurses are brilliant at their jobs, and will explain everything in detail to you, it is good if you have someone with you though who can take notes an…
  • @Shands , @RobertA , @PositiveLady10 Hi Sue, Welcome to the community, it is lovely to 'meet' you, I do hope you are recovering from your recent surgery, I know it can be a difficult time where recovery can seem very slow. Hopefully you will get a…
  • @Norrie Hi Norrie, It is lovely to hear from you. I think unless you are physically being sick in a bucket, looking like Gollum (from Lord of the Rings), looking like you are gasping for your last breath, people so quickly and easily forget how se…
  • @KitKat , @Jojodot Hi Catherine, Lorna, Just wondering how you are both doing, knowing you have both started treatment now? I hope you are managing to get through the days ok, thinking of you both, 🤗 Lou xx
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/cancer/discussion/382/laughter-doeth-good-like-a-medicine This saying popped up again today on my phone! It's great how sometimes things are brought to our attention right when we need to hear/see them. I am def…

  • @Sarah19 Hi Sarah, I know what you mean! We were in the South of France during the summer, yes, the temperatures were very high, and night time even worse! Hahaha, no I wasn't laughing then though! We did actually try and sleep with the fan on al…
  • @Phil Hi Phil, That is great news to hear you have managed to come through the radiotherapy so well, although it does sound as if it was very uncomfortable at times! I am really pleased for you that you have had so few side effects. It is great to…
  • @PositiveLady10 Hi Barbara, Oh well done you are halfway through! That is so good to hear, I can understand how tired you must be, having the Herceptin as well during the radiotherapy must add to the fatigue. Lets hope you see a difference in the…
  • @PositiveLady10 Hi Barbara, Just wondering how you are getting on with the radiotherapy? I think you may be almost at the end of your sessions, is that right? I hope you are coping ok with the daily travel to and from hospital and any side effects…
  • @Sarah19 Hi Sarah, Ohhh, that sounds so unpleasant for you, I am sorry to hear you are suffering so much. Has anyone suggested anything to you to help? I know I mentioned the cool pads, have you thought of trying those? They do small ones to go in…

  • @Sarah19 Hi Sarah, I did wonder that after I read the information too! Sorry to hear you are still struggling with hot flushes and sweats, are you still on medication? The hot flushes come and go for me these days, getting less frequent. I am sti…

  • @SusanW60 Hi Sue, Ahhh, yes, I think we have all been there at some point! I know I have! Having a bad day now and then is all very normal. Your daughter is quite right, a good observation of people, we think others are paying far more attention …
  • @SusanW60 Hi Sue, It is lovely to hear from you, hair loss from having chemo, and then the hopeful re-growth is not a minor issue, I am sure everyone who has experienced this will agree. It is strange how our hair can grow back so differently fro…
  • @Sarah19 Good morning Sarah, From your post I am assuming you have completed all of your treatment for breast cancer? If so, I hope you are making a good recovery from all of that. I would suggest you speak with your oncologist and health care te…

  • @PositiveLady10 Hi Barbara, Sorry it was delayed, but it was a good idea to stick around! Back again tomorrow? Yes, the forecast is good, enjoy the time with your family, we were down at the beach on Sunday afternoon. A quiet one for us I think, …
  • @PositiveLady10 Hi Barbara, I am so sorry to hear the itching you are suffering from is still going on and drs so far are unable to determine the cause of it. Bless you that must be so infuriating and very uncomfortable. You must be feeling really…
  • @KitKat Hi Catherine, Thank you so much for letting us know how you got on, especially as you have had very long days and a lot of travelling. It sounds as though you have a brilliant team looking after you, it is reassuring when you actually do …
  • @kaz01 Hi Kaz, My heart does go out to you, I can empathise with you feeling so far away from your grandson and the feeling of not being able to do much to help him. I know you are feeling very anxious, but you must take care of you too, you know …

  • @Jojodot Hi, I hope your appointment yesterday went as well as it could have and have been able to find out the finer details of diagnosis and hopefully the treatment plan and order of things. When the drs give you a whole lot of information at th…
