Hi I'm still here .bit nervous about tomorrow appointment were seeing oncologist hopefully to hear if I'm ready for surgery next steps etc .and whether they will consider both bowel and liver together .will update tomorrow .
Thanks I'm sure it's normal to be anxious..been told I was discussed in yesterday MDT meeting .all these things go on behind scenes that we have no control over .wait is hardest bit .I do have trust that docs are doing what's best for me .I'm just hoping basingstoke hospital will now agree to surgery .pro proba worry too much but we have nothing to compare it too .but I know there's thousands people out there going through similar or worse .onwards as always .af aft hospital got free afternoon tea with work colleagues .it's an apology for bad service at local hotel for Xmas meal .so will enjoy tea and cake and a bucks fizz
Hi .yes fatigue I know that well .some days I really should do more but just got no motivation but am trying go for decent walks few times week .I badly need colour on hair to cover grey .maybe soon .nurse keep saying not yet .yes I'm off bed for early night for sleep hopefully.thankyou for positive thoughts much appreciated
Totally with u on the wait front it’s always the hardest. Lay odds on at those MDT meets they have a cuddy load t go through so touch base on the important bits that need decisions but... would still like t b a fly on the wall:-). U have another meet nd eat with friends......and it’s FREE!!! Lol oh how I envy u... said it before nd say it again love afternoon tea:-) try not t get too squiffy on the bucks fiz..... nah only joking - drink what u want nowt like a treat x
There u r was missing u... we all need us time to ourselves of occasion- just know we are always here nd we don’t judge whatever u want or need t say- we have your back in the good nd bad days:-)
have u booked yr drs appt for yr results yet? I’ve got t have drs appt for my BP check... sigh nd my car is due it’s mot nd service even bigger sigh lol x
I know what u mean a bit like “keep picking a scab then it will never heal” but ( nd it’s a big but)... as long as not voicing your feelings is because u don’t want to rather than feeling people will b tired of hearing. Never think that cos it’s simply not true. I can never give back the support I have had from here ( remember my repetitive questions) nd without fail u and others answered. That squeeze on your shoulder is my hand of support:-) x
Hi Tigercub. Just wanted to wish you all the best for your meeting. As for colouring hair, my cousin has just done hers after chemo altho I think she’s three months post now. She got an organic one that was recommended on the ‘Living Well with Cancer’ site.
That slightly claustrphobic feeling you are going to have today is us lot coming along with you! Even if it is two ops and not one it’s progress towards getting the #%** under control!
Car is good altho the heater is a bit asthmatic. Not a problem for me, I can glow for England but passengers tend to get a bit narky and blue with the cold!
Trying to sort rail tickets at the mo, any preferences for a time to meet up?
AHH thanks .feel bit calmer this morning always like it when daylight arrive .did sleep but not brilliant .going have breakfast n bath then off hospital .we found somewhere off site close hospital to park so don't have fret about car park charges .get free tickets when go to chemo etc .
