    Thanks for putting such an honest account of your surgery here. I didn't see it before mine in early July but much of it was similar. 

    Its hard to ask for help somehow isn't it?

    On my stay, I had a bleed which required a second operation after the first. Then the next day I fainted on the toilet and found myself on the other side of the room with undies around my ankles and bumps on my head. I managed to pull up undies before ringing for help. Priorities! Its a humorous tale to tell now but I got a lot of attention that day and no more toileting alone. Low blood pressure apparently.  I asked my husband and mother to hover outside the toilet when they were in! 

    Hope all is going well.

    HI @MicheleR gosh that would have be awful having to have a 2nd operation due to a bleed.  It's so much to bear isn't it.  Well done pulling up undies before ringing for help.  The things we do.  Hope all is going well for you.    Yes I am plodding along.  I have had 3 AC chemo sessions.   Have no hair now fell out just before 2nd session.  The pain on my scalp was so intense just before it fell out.   I have one more AC session (have these every 3 weeks) and then I go onto weekly sessions for 12 weeks and then radiation.  I just take one appointment at a time.  Here if you need me.  Sending hugs xxx

    Hi @Locksley,

    Sounds like you are doing well. Im healing up and due to start what seems like similar chemo regime in 2 weeks. Im thinking of pre-emptively getting my hair cut very short before it falls out. And about to go hat shopping. Making the most of opportunities to have some fun out of this odd situation. 

    Best wishes
    Michele
