Great news seaspirit44 xxx
Thank you Optimistic. Xxx
seaspirit44 So pleased for the good news!
I did try a walk with the puppy but we didn’t get very far! Been playing lots in the garden though......
Back from hospital. Held it together reasonably well considering not feeling great; as as well as healing I have a cold and a UTI! Never had a UTI before - I'm blaming Letrozole. Phoned GP yesterday and she prescribed antibiotics over the phone. Improving.
Anyway - got distracted there! We have decided to do a skin graft next week or the week after. He needs to look at his list and see where he can squeeze me in. Local anaesthetic. So fingers crossed this works. Then nurse decides that she will put some jelonet with gauze on the wound and my "snug" bra will hold it in place. I did tell her it wasn't that snug as F cup one side and B cup the other . . . So got home and guess what dressing had slipped; bra stained with blood. So luckily I have a box of various dressings from the last 13 weeks and i have dressed with the most comfortable dressings I have and ordered some more from gp surgery. I will do my own thing with wound until I have the graft.
Still got no energy, get breathless and legs very heavy. But lets get healed, then I can start radiotherapy and once that is done I will try and sort out everything else. I reckon it will be end of May before radiotherapy starts. Not much walking being done but I have decided not to push myself at the moment. I will try and get out though for the sake of my mental health. I could do with a Little Henry moomy!
Enjoy the lovely weather everyone.
Bless you what a rotten time your having. I wish you all the best . Stay strong. You can do this- what ever it takes.
