It's only been a week since finishing txing, and I feel like a new person! I don't ache anymore...No nausea...No itching...I can remember stuff...I don't go places and forget why I'm there...(You may laugh, but it's too true...) ...and the mood swings seem to be gone! (No snarling or spontaneous bawling!) I even have a bit of interest in the Hubby again! (Bow wow chicka chicka bow wow! LOL.) Now I can hardly wait for the hemoglobin to come up so I can have a bit of stamina to do something! ...Maybe I can salvage a bit of the summer yet! ...Now, the dreaded 6 month wait before true celebration... ~Melinda
I'm soooooooo celebrating for you - I think you're both FANTASTIC. Thanks for your informative and sanity-saving posts (Melinda - you gave me tips on what to watch out for with thyroid as mine's starting to suffer).
My hubby is being sooooo sweet; I have such admiration for how he's supporting me; I can't wait to pay it forward :-). Enjoy!!!
hey...thanks girl ...i needed this post it giving me the lil extra push to go on iwas ready to through in the towel so many times but i come to the forum and read a few post and see im not by myself ..i have a whole army fighting this same fight
thanbks so much guys for support
congrats on finishing your tx and YES, I concur -- I felt sooooo much better after stopping the tx and stamina did come back. Did you treat for 24 weeks, 48, or more? I just posted on other forum but I just finished 1 yr mark with UND. My doctor did not order me a 3 month post blood work, just 6 months. I went back to her and told her I wanted the 3 month and she wrote that for me. Good Luck to You.
congrats to you and j d as a beginner who have not treated yet, i thank all of everyone in the forum, for all the encouragement, all the knowledge and wisdom, for giving me faith to go on in this fight. love you all. medmommy thank you esp. for showing me the way to handle my business. bill 1954, thank you for listening and directing my problems, directing me into tx. i feel like you guys are my family.(wiping tears) i have a whole year of tx . thanks for strengthening me .
"No snarling or spontaneous bawling!" As long as you're feeling better, start mending fences. It's make you feel even better when people know you feel better. (There's actually some sense in there somewhere). I think you said you had some back-to-work decisions to make, too. Don't rush.
I think we all needed to hear that, so many times others have had a hard time after Tx that i know i think "will i ever be the same" reading your post was just what I needed to hear!!!
Also agree, CELEBRATE now and in six months!!!
(my husband was also happy to hear that you feel better (chicka chicka bow wow) lol!!!
Go out dance and eat some good food and just have fun!!!
......I don't go places and forget why I'm there...(You may laugh, but it's too true...)
Oh noooo, I remember that well (Now!), lol. Left in the middle of app.'s!
SO glad your feeling good fast! Hope you recover quickly and you'll be surprised how fast that 6 mths. goes....as mines almost here!
Keep in mind the 12 wk. is a very good one also, still UND then you odd's are fantastic. Even just 4 wks labs. Every one add's up to better odds.
Jd......cheer, cheer for you too! So happy your done and healing up and done with this chapter! I am sooooo wishing you years of health ahead and NO tx's, none, nadda, no more!
Congrats and I am glad to hear you are feeling better since treatment is done. It sounds like hubby is glad too (Bow wow chicka chicka bow wow! LOL.)!!! It is nice to hear their is light at the end of the tunnel for us all.
Glad your feeling better, but watch out for the dead cat bounce. Meaning, you dead stopped the meds and there is a void at the moment and when this void window is closed there will be a rippling effect with in your system, Congrats on the finishing.
