I was wondering how it went for you, glad to year you are dotty now too and ready for next week. Tuesday, same as Carla then and me just over a week after that on the 04th.
Ha ha funny you should mention the hairs, I had the same on Friday. I only noticed when i was getting ready to leave, sprouting long hairs like im 12 again! I was hoping they woulnd't come back as i've been told not to shave as i have no feeling their and mustn't cut myself. So lying on the bed, i also had to apologise, i felt sooo embarassed. I'm sure they must see all sorts anyways eh! When i went back on Monday i tried my bikini trimmer under my arm, which was easy enough, will have to see when they grow back. I've got veet cream now but never used it before so hope it will be ok.
So 2 weeks for your rads then, it will fly by. Hey if we can manage almost 6 months of chemo rads will be walk in the park eh.
Thanks for the advice on the creams ladies. They actually didn't say anything to me about moisturising but i remember you saying Davia thats its important to start as soon as. I do anyways every time i shower. My skin is still so dry from chemo.
Thanks for the heads up too about delayed side effects Davia, no doubt I'll be asking you again in a months time.
After my walk today i felt my hand had swollen and was sore to the touch, like i had bashed it and bruised. i guess walking with all the blood rushing down. i could see my fingers were swollen too. I do still get strange twinges and in my chest too. its still weird i dont have feeling in my arm pit and down my arm. i still have the lump but its smaller now and when i mentioned it to the radiologist she couldn't really notice. When i have my arms up it looks like there is no lump. Its still so tender to the touch and some of it is flab, great! I realised that when i looked at my right arm, erm yeah i have back flab. How do you get rid of it?!
Hope you doing ok today Karyn. You have a lot to contend with and June seems to be the month when its all happening. One step at a time eh.
I was watching a programme last night called the Rookie, quite easy going. Anyways one of the cops was giving the other some advice as they were waiting for test results and they said "Focusing on the fear is not going to change the outcome" And that hit home for me, as so often we focus on what can go wrong rather than what we have done and achieved. I know at times easier said than done with what we are going through, but that statement resonated with me and something i needed to hear.
