made use of my lost day by dragging myself n hubby to cortonwood and xmas shopping a task that needed doing !
good luck for tomorrow ,just a word of warning don’t try and do too much please I know 3/4 people who in first week after treatment overdid it and ended up in hospital .! Dehydration and lack of food .
at one point. Just remember it took 6 week 5 times a week to get the radiation into yiu it takes at least 3 times as long to get it out if your system .if u touch my neck I still feel heat from it
I was on 5 Ensure and 2 fresubin I still take 2 30 min power naps in day one after tablets at lunch and one at tea time.
Re nebuliser I made it part if my routine for a good few weeks including middle of night It’s was wake up rinse take tablets try n get some Ensure down me even i night then nebulise then clean teeth put lip balm on biotene gel on gums n teeth then bed .
the biotene gel is good for maintaining moisture u can try and get it prescribed or get your dentist failing that boots chemist. Biotene also do a mouthwash I have ut but too strong for me still
good new today I am sat eating a tin if plum tomatoes admitting slowly but it’s a vegetable !!!!!! Up to now plain boiled beetroot and soft carrots if I am lucky . I miss fruit n veg.
oh well the tomatoes have defeated me managed 3/4 tablespoons its a start
did I say I had a radiation burn the entire length of my tongue the oncologist had to catch the edge if tongue to ensure he had enough margins he apologised for nit telling me at the time but said it had to be done hence why I am having problem so still but looking today it’s now reduced to maybe 3 cm .
once again slowly does it think tortoise and hare m in this case we are defiantly the tortoises.dont iver do work either
thinking if yiu living in table for last time hearing the click of the mask being undone is quite emotional and at our hospital we get a bell to ring in reception I said all along I wasn’t doing it .but in the end I didn’t and hearing the clapping as getting then congratulations made it worth while
Hazel look forward to reading uodates keep in touch
