I’ve been meaning to pop on for a while and give you all an update. I started treatment on august 17th and I’ve managed 3/5 chemo and 12/13 radio so far. Nearly half way!
To be honest, it’s been much harder than I was expecting, both physically and mentally. During week one the nausea hit me hard and i’ve been on several anti-sickness tablets since, trying to get the right combo. Other than that, I just generally feel rubbish. I’ve barely managed to get out of bed most days, and it’s really getting me down. I don’t feel like myself and I worry my low mood is going to negatively affect how well my treatment goes. I’m usually such a positive person so this has been strange for me.
During week two I started my period which didn’t help matters, but it cleared off pretty quickly. Hopefully that’s my last one! I’ve had a lot of discharge - not sure if this is good or bad. I was hoping that if the tumour is filled with fluid then it’s good to get it out! But other than that, I’m ok. I have suffered a bit with constipation, but the pain in my pelvis that I had been having previously seems to have gone (or i’ve not noticed it!).
Thank you all as always for your support. Whenever I’m feeling really low I always come on and read the forum because everyone is always so positive on here. Social media can be much more negative I feel, and I seem to keep reading stories of lovely women who have sadly lost their battle.
