Hi peeps. A quickie to let you know that my oncologist called to tell me they don’t think the lump has shrunk but apparently it’s flatter. To me that’s a shrinkage win so I’ll take it. It was kinda what I had been feeling for myself, that it’s more oval shaped and spikier. Good to know that my untrained hands are as accurate as any machine that goes ping (or clang, bang, pew-pew in this case). I also asked for a different anti-emetic (stops vomiting/nausea) because frankly the other one isn’t doing its job. I have yet to be offered the alleged Gold Standard drug Emend that all the ladies on the forums rave about. If this new anti-emetic doesn’t work, then I may start becoming a pushy patient and ask for the good stuff.
Anyway I had a first meet up with two other lovely womenfolk who have the dreaded disease too and it was very nice. We gossiped about slightly rubbish breast cancer nurses, wonky boobs, chemo curls and one showed us her new party trick of flexing her one boob like Arnie as she got a reconstruction with back muscle. So now she has one boob all muscley and the other was remade with fat from her belly. So when she puts on weight, her one boob gets bigger too! Ah the things I may have to look forward too ; p
So I’m waiting on the arrival of the lovely bosomer, Karen from Scotland. And I think here she is. Toot, toot and a big wahey : )
