Yet more chemo 😜

Yet more chemo 😜

Hi ladies, well I finished my A&C chemo on Wednesday, having already had T&C chemo followed by a bilateral mastectomy, I was supposed to have had a five week break before radiotherapy started, now it's a three week break before four sessions of CMF chemo to run alongside my radiotherapy. I know it's precautionary to ensure all residual cancer cells are gone -as we know it's only chemo that those of us with TNBC has to rely on. I was hoping that after this 'red devil' chemo would be at an end. I know I should not moan, but chemo does get you down doesn't it. Oh well onwards and upwards. I just hope that once this treatment is all over, this cancer never comes back.... Sorry just needed that rant... Night all, I'm off to try and sleep now. Sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite xxxx Lainey 🤒

I know the chemo is hard work, but let them throw all the chemo you can take at you. Triple neg is evil. It's the only option. Good luck, Lainey, beautiful lady x

I love your photo Lainey, there is definitely a naughty twinkle to that smile of yours! Chemotherapy stinks, no matter what type, it's a necessary evil and I'm sorry you have even more to get through. 

Rant here as much as you need to, I think you are entitled to that much at least! 

Now go and do something or buy something outrageous, daft or something that makes you laugh out loud.

Take care xxx

You are amazingly brave, hopefully the side effects won't be as debilitating as the previous chemo and that you'll be able to look back and think that it was worth it. I found the radio therapy wasn't too bad, it makes you tired so look after yourself.xx

Brilliant photo Lainey x

You rant away as much as you like, it's what we're here for.! All you can do is keep fighting this horrible disease...I was listening to some music the other day and some of the words stuck with me "we're all under the weight of living" (it was a group called Bastille - I love them).!

Hope the side effects of the next lot of treatment aren't too difficult for you, sending you lots of positive vibes and hugs 😊

Great photo.  Stick that on your fridge to remind you how far you have come. You look fantastic. I don't know about the other chemo but I had CMF X8 every 3 weeks and though I hated it it was actually (from what I hear of other chemos) not that bad. I got about 10 days of feeling normal,  didn't lose my hair and the anti sick meds did their job pretty well. Alongside radiotherapy you'll probably be dog tired but you know wehayyyy in a few weeks it'll be all over and you'll know you have thrown everything including the kitchen sink at it. You're entitled to a down day. Spoil yourself with something nice and try to look beyond all this at the fab Sumner we are going to have.  Xxxx

Hi Lainey,

This is a difficult journey to be on. There  is zero expectation of constant cheer and perkiness. Rant til you're done. Do something relaxing for yourself and exhale. Thinking of ya!

Hi lainey

Just catching up with everyones comments saw you have had a bit of a low day and all the lovely comments to keep you motivated

I just want to add to all those you are amazing and you will keep going cos you have to and want to i had a consultant i worked with who said chemo was the belt and braces and  i was glad i was gettin it .like you say tnbc needs everything throwing at it and you are surely gettin that 

Youve had a good dose and probably its a bit worse now u know what to expect 

You are entitled to down days they are good for you my consultant told me she would be more concerned if i never had  a good crying session and i did feel better for it and still do im sure its the same for you

Good days .bad days and really shitty days bring them on keep strong

Absolutely spot on there :) I ended up having a visit from my bestie and she motivated me to get jobs done that I had let go - paperwork, insurances etc... so got on top of a lot and feeling much better for it. Building back up to my usual self. :)  Happy out xxxx Thank you Nicholjac xx
