  • Good morning Vanessa, Welcome to the group, I am sorry to hear your treatment with the chemo tablets has not worked. I do agree with in that it would be wise to call your oncologist as soon as you are able and explain how you are feeling since …

  • Hi Mary! 😀 Coo-ee only me! Louise!😊 It is so lovely that you have joined us here! I am so glad to see you! Haha Everyone here is very friendly and supportive, I am sure you will get to know others soon too. It is really encouraging news. Chat so…
  • Hi Pauline, Ah yes, I do remember sometimes my heart going faster while in chemo too. I did have a heart check thing done, to check my heart would cope with it. It came back fine. With the fingers, mine did change colour, I had ridges all over the…
  • Morning Lise😊 Well that is some good news at least, even though there is still uncertainty, hopefully from the biopsy some things can be ruled out. I hope these next results come through very soon for you, the waiting and the unknown is the harde…

  • Hi Jackie, Just wanted to welcome you to the community, I am so sorry to hear of your daughter's recent diagnosis. I understand how completely shocked and devastated you all must be feeling. I am not familiar with this type of cancer, hopefully th…
  • Hey!! 😄, Lovely to hear from you! Very glad that everything going ok with you too. How was the fundraising? The weather has been awful, just hope the farmers are glad of it! I said yesterday to my lot, maybe we are in for a dry August, that would …
  • I am surprised by that too. If the ibuprofen stops being effective, perhaps telling the Macmillan nurse too, but really the dr should be monitoring it. I do know from my own experience it is important to take them regularly, round the clock if nec…
  • Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know how your Dad's appointment went. As Rob has mentioned it's good the consultant doesn't think it is aggressive at the moment. Did the consultant give your dad some stronger pain meds to help? As for…
  • Morning! 😄 Haha, all good thanks Jackie. My own fault! Haha! Up early again today, since 4.30, actually had a sunrise that you could see today. Sun is skimming the top of the trees. Looks lovely. Lou xx
  • Hi Rob, Yes thank you, I am feeling much better having got those meds out of my system. Haha! No wonder I was 'off' all week. Back on the proper ones now! Lol! 😂. Quiet day here while Hannah working, resting mostly! Hope you are having a good day.…
  • Hi Susan, That is brilliant! Wow! Well done for raising so much awareness by starting this petition. I agree with you, lowering the age limit for mammograms would be good. I am hearing more and more of women who are being diagnosed with breast can…
  • Mmmm...mmmm, yum! xx
  • Hi Jokey, that's great news! So pleased for you that you are seeing a difference. Very positive and encouraging for you. I hope you are able to celebrate this good news in style, or adopt Susan's idea. ( ) Lou xx
  • I am glad to hear your Dad was given some more information, I am surprised he wasn't given a detailed explanation prior to starting radiotherapy. I think that is usually what is meant to happen. At least now he knows a little of what to expect in …
  • Hi, Just wanted to welcome you here, I am glad you have found us, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad and to hear how much he is suffering from the pain. It is brilliant you have already chatted with Rob, who being in a similar position to your …
  • Good morning Jackie!😊, Lovely to hear from you, I have been thinking about you. I am so glad to hear both Norm and Jasper are recovering well, Jasper must be very happy to be free of the cone!! 😊, Bless him sitting by the biscuit cupboard, haha, …
  • Hi Joanne I am so very sorry to hear of your husband's diagnosis, and I am sure it is such a terrible shock for you both, seemingly impossible to comprehend. Although I don't really have any in knowledge or experience of this type of cancer, I just…
  • Hi George, Thank you so much for sharing your story which is so helpful for others in the sane situation as yourself. I can only imagine what you have been through, and are going through adjusting to a different way of life since your surgery and …
  • I think the wheels need to be a bit bigger, then they might fit the car better!!!😂😂😂
  • That's great , only a few days to wait. I hope the next few days for you are as restful and relaxing as possible. 🤗 Lou x
  • Hi I am really sorry to hear you are in such pain, although I do remember having intense pain in my rib area too after my mastectomy, going in the car was an absolute nightmare! It will get better over time, sorry, not a quick fix. I think it is n…
  • Oh yes, I totally understand that. Your world changed overnight, there is nothing that can prepare you for that news, even if you had a suspicion. The shockwaves keep going for a long time. It is overwhelming sometimes and our minds can hardly gr…

  • Hi Rob, I love this photo of you and Ron, so many years of friendship, it's really great. Love it that he is writing so many poems and giving them to you to set them to music. A great reminder to us, that each new day we have is to be lived and c…
  • Hi Zoe, It is hard at first taking dressings off and seeing scars etc. I expect there may still be some swelling too and the stitches and scar will look very prominent. It will go down and the scar line will reduce or become less prominent. At som…

  • Hi Jackie, I am so glad to see a lovely photo of Jasper and Norm out and about. You must be so relieved! How long does Jasper need the cone on? I can imagine the stress levels being very high and potentially causing you more distress. I am so plea…
  • That's really lovely Susan, this is exactly what this community is for. 😊🤗😎♥️ Lou xx
  • Hi Pauline, Lovely to hear from you! 😊 It does take a while for the effects if chemo to subside, I am not surprised you are feeling aches and pains, and extreme tiredness. It depends which chemo you had, I only found out recently that the effects…
