Hi Cheryl. I’m so sorry to hear this. Don’t know what chemo you’re having but I found carbo caelyx much easier than frontline. Hopefully your good memories of your holiday will keep your spirits up. Xx

Thank you ,not sure what I'm having yet, taxol was dreadful , excruciating leg pain ,hoping for something else but will do what I have to . Going to print out holiday photos and put them on the wall ,my inspiration to get it done and get ready for next holiday .

Hi Cheryl, I feel really gutted for you receiving this news, yet at the same time very inspired to read that you’re going to kick it’s arse by getting treatment quickly and then get back to living your life.

All the very best to you,

Love Denise xxxxx

Thank you Denise,trying to be positive but those 'what its' creep in , pushing them out and cleaning the house 😀😀

Cheryl xx

So sorry to read you have recurred Cheryl, especially at the moment things are difficult enough. You sound very strong and positive though which is good and I’m sure this will help spur you through your treatment. Hope it all goes well. Best wishes, Jo xx

fendweller in reply to Jo-Jo1-UK

Thank you Jo ,feel positive at the moment but will be on here ranting and crying before long I'm sure, for now I'm just going to keep busy.xx


Rant away Cheryl whenever you like , I think most of us have felt the same at some point. We all get through this together xx

Aw Cheryl, so sorry to hear the bugger is back, hopefully you will get through the treatment ok. I wish you all the best, stay strong & I will be thinking of you Xx

fendweller in reply to Tulips66

Thank you ,I'm keeping busy ,house has never been so clean 😀😀 just want to start treatment now .xx


Go girl. 👊🏻

fendweller in reply to JustKBO

I'm going 😀😀xx

Oh Cheryl that’s crap! I’m sorry to hear about your recurrence. On the flip side treatment is starting promptly.

I’m keeping everything crossed for you.

Wear those big girl knickers with pride and kick the ba#%€rd into touch.

Sending a big hug

Joy xx

fendweller in reply to JayGeeCee

Thank you Joy , thongs relegated to the back of the drawer ,big girl pants to the front. (I don't own a thong). 😀xx


Stay positive cheryl. I am always inspired by your positivity. My mother's RT PCR turned out positive (she's well so it was a shock for us). The onco said we will have to wait for the result to become negative before starting chemo. Struggle after srtuggle after struggle is killing me. But i i cant show it to my mother. I dont want her to feel down.

Keep on updating us. Sending you big and tight hugs.

fendweller in reply to Kwiskwos

Thank you for your kind words ,sorry to hear about your mum, just go one day at a time and push those bad thoughts out of your head ,not easy ,but easier with practice xx


Hi Cheryl,

Really sorry to hear your news, it's such a pain. I'm still on first line finished chemo in May and am on Avastin maintenance my CA125 is climbing and CT Scan says miniscule disease on the bowel so they are keeping a close eye, It's a bit too soon for more chemo I think so they'll have to put there thinking caps on. All the best and take care. Sue xx

fendweller in reply to SUE7777

Oh Sue I'm so sorry to hear you're having trouble too , we're a right pair , hope they get a plan in place for you soon , try to enjoy your chemo free time .xx


SUE7777 in reply to fendweller

Thanks Cheryl we are a right pair, lets hope we soon become a pair of NED's. All the best Sue xx

fendweller in reply to SUE7777

fendweller in reply to W6W3

I sure will 😀😀 xx

Really sorry to hear that Cheryl....but so glad you're able to go straight into treatment. Hope everything goes smoothly for you and those pants go straight back in the drawer!


Thinking of you Cheryl, I think we all have a pair of those big girl pants, nobody wants to have to wear them though, wishing you good luck with your new line of treatment.

Hi Cheryl ,

So sorry to hear your news.

Glad you are going straight back into treatment.

I am wearing my "big girl pants" too, just started 3 weeks on 1 week off Taxol.

Thinking of you., good luck.


fendweller in reply to janwen52

Thank you Janet, we'll just keep pulling out pants up ,good luck with your treatment .xx


Wishing you Good Luck and best wishes for an "easier" chemo. You can do it!! Gwen x

fendweller in reply to thomas62

Thank you Gwen for your good wishes. Xx


Hi Cheryl, so sorry to see that your cancer has returned. I am on Zejula, but my hemoglobin dropped so I had a blood transfusion. Now, I am having blood work done weekly again to monitor this drug . Don’t like some of the side effects that come with it. I hope that you feel ok with your treatment. I live in the U.S. and I believe that I have a good doctor. It’s always try, wait and see what is next. It’s not an easy journey, that’s for sure. Take care.

I haven't heard of Zejula ,will bear it in mind when I see my oncologist , sorry you're having a bad time with it ,hope things improve for you .

Cheryl x

Thankyou Cheryl. Best wishes to you too, Donna

Thinking of you ❤️

fendweller in reply to Lind58

Thank you so much ,each reply gives me strength. Xx

Hello Cheryl, I always watch this blog but don't often comment. I have just restarted chemotherapy for the third time as my CA125 has been rising, sadly due to my CT referral being "lost" I am probably 4 weeks late restarting treatment and my confidence has taken a real knock. That said my resolve is as always strong and I will plough on through the next 5 treatments. I have already had carboplatin/paclataxol and carboplatin/caelyx and now on carboplatin on its own and coping ok. Isn't it the case that all we can do is be kind to ourselves, listen to our bodies but above all else NEVER EVER GIVE UP, I wish you well Cheryl, onward and upward. Xxx

Thank you for your kind and inspirational words , so sorry that you're going through it for a third time. Be kind to yourself is so true ,I'll plod own whatever it takes .Wishing you well with your treatment. Xx
