I'm now 2 weeks post chemo and beginning to feel more myself. Fatigue is lifting slowly and I've got more energy. I decided re-join the gym as I'd not been since before Covid. I've been a few times now and initially found that walking briskly on an inclined treadmill and using the cross trainer were all I could manage but I'm building up stamina slowly and adding more and more to my workout each time I go.
I had my CT planning scan done for my radiotherapy last week which starts on the 2nd March just for 5 days. We are then hoping to have a holiday somewhere warm and sunny where I can recuperate a bit more and forget about hospitals, tests and appointments.
I shall continue to have Herceptin injections every three weeks and need to begin taking the Anastrozole that was prescribed for me and is sitting on the coffee table - but I think I'm going to hold off taking them until after radiotherapy.
I then need to think about my return to work. A lot of people say don't rush, come back when you're ready but I feel that I've been immersed in this cancer/chemo bubble for so long and my brain has been saturated with all things cancer I just want to be able to think about something different, and going back to work will enable this. I need to get back to my job for my own sanity.
It feel good, that last chemo, doesn't it? Glad to hear you are nearing the end of the journey. Herceptin, at least for me, is a breeze compared to chemo. Good luck with getting back to work too
