Hi lovely ladies, just to let you know how my journey is continuing. Today, just a week after the right breast and two sentinel nodes were removed, I saw the surgeon. Only a partial report had been prepared from pathology so far. The good news is that the cancer hadn't gone to the lymph nodes and the margins were adequate. I won't know the bad news ( if any) until I see the oncologist in a week or two with the rest of the result. Meanwhile the wound continues to heal, the drain is still in but reducing. I'm managing to do quite a lot, but sure know it by feeling dizzy when I've over done things. I'm a 'master' at coping and camouflaging the drain! Good luck and many warm wishes and love to you all. Until the next report. 🌺

Hi Jac. No not taking anything special, actually was advised to not take any supplements whilst on chemo. I found eating a little and often for the first 3 days after helped me. Crackers, raw carrot sticks, celery, houmas and pitta bread soup etc and then as much fresh fruit and veg with meals as possible when my appetite came back a bit. Try drink as much water /fluid , ginger cordial with hot water helped me when I felt sick too. When your feeling more normal don't forget a treat when you fancy too. I haven't had a canula fitted.

Well that's a good way to start the day, very pleased for you 😃.
Good luck with oncologist. Xx
Well done you. Youre doing great but it will all come up to hit you if you don't take plenty of rest... but i was exactly the same as you. .. remember the drains all too well. I had 3 of the bloody things. I'm back in hospital this am for surgery to tidy up abdominal "dog ears" from diep flap surgery last year. Woop woop lovely white stockings again. This feels like a kind of closure to a surreal year. I might even get a new nipple today. :). See ye on the other side xxxxxx
Jac, if you need Chemo you will become more tired, I made a Private Facebook Group for updating selected i.e. close, personal friends & family across the world and I used to copy it in an email to friends not on FB because it can become very tiring repeating the same thing over & over. Take Care 💐
Good news it's not in your lymph nodes, good luck with your oncology appointment, I hope it all goes well.
Take it easy especially while you still have the drains in. 💐
