Ta muchly ladies.
Sure panic will set in but at min just happy at timing.
U have asked already how Rileyroo is so just wondering how u r jbains:-)
No need to panic, the actual zapping is pretty straightforward.
My first three appointments were slightly longer as they were also imaging to make sure that as little lung as possible was being hit. This week I'm in and out in 15 minutes and that includes getting undressed and creaming up and dressed afterwards. Got a great bunch of radiographers, professional and caring. They've got a good sense of humour as well which helps! Bonus
Have felt a bit gippy at times, radiographer said try having a ginger biscuit before going for treatment and it seems to work. I am getting tired, thought it was a bit early but apparently some people do get the tiredness earlier than others. Skin doing OK tho both on back and breast. Managing to get cream on both before I leave the hospital which might be helping. Disappear to the loo's on a regular basis to put either aloe vera or aveeno pn depending on how I feel!
That’s brill hope I’m the same.
Told my girls about the creams etc nd they brought me a pretty little basket with them all in. All with a pretty lil bow on lol.
Oh how my gifts have changed lol x
I guess when all treatment is ended there is truly nothing to distract our minds anymore.
It shows your strength to recognise u need some help to work through some things and both surprised and delighted that you don’t have a long wait to see ur councillor.
Please don’t feel u need to be strong for us- that is not what this forum is about. It’s here to feel not alone on this road - that road does not end when we complete treatment.
If u r happy to support others that’s great but it’s not a necessity. Yours nd Rileyroos support has without a doubt made my road a lot easier than it would have been without your input - thank you
meanwhile we are here and we are listening. I am going to send both u and Rileyroo a friend request - if u prefer not t accept that is fine I won’t take offence:-) it means if anyone wants to private message rather than put on an open forum u can. It’s just gives an option. Just gotta work out how to lol .
thinking of u jbains
think ive managed to add friends now:-)
Please chip in anytime - your help is appreciated (I sometimes forget the great resources available to draw on here).
