Thanks so much for replies. had another 7 litres drained just 3 weeks after the previous one. That's just over a week ago and I'm pretty sure I can feel it building up again already.
The onc says they're reluctant to put in a perm drain when you're on chemo (weekly taxol, one week off) but I'm beginning to think i need to be a little more assertive.
To b e honest I'm beginning to feel so very helpless and apathetic. I know it's not a good mental attitude. It feels like an alien has taken over my being in the sense that I have so little energy. I don't want to see people and I don't think that's a "denial" thing - just that I feel so very sensitive to others.
Anyway ladies, you are all such a source of strength and encouragement - any tips on how to get out of this rut would be very welcome indeed. It feels so self-pitying saying this, but if only I could feel of some itsy bitsy use to someone else - even just for a few minutes daily. But I need energy for that😁🤓🙏🏼😜💜
Thanks all for letting me rant and sending very much love
