10 days and already physical exercise! That is great. I'm going to do the same, regarding the vacation. Something to look forward, thanks!
I'm so happy that things are getting better for you post tx. I appreciate that you and others keep us up to date on post tx issues and progress. Years ago, it seems most info was tx based and now we see that sx don't always stop just because tx has.
Good idea on taking some time off from work. I've started pondering that too on the days when my sx are the worst. My gift to myself to continue healing.
I'm in awe of you biking for 9 miles 2 days in a row. WOW!! And rollerblading!!
Hope that things continue to get better and better for you.........Pam
For give me if I plagiarized your post. I didn't think I saw it at all, but perhaps I did read the opening line and it fired some neurons. In any case, I am glad to hear that you are done and I wish you SVR!
So glad to hear you are feeling better.
Thanks for your update. Looking forward to hearing great things about you =)
Wonderful! Way to go! Congrats on finishing and feeling better every day. It's a beautiful feeling isn't it!
Wishing you a big fat SVR!
WOW your an flower artist and rollerblading too thats my kind of girl!! Are you free by any chance ???
I copy Andiamo and say glad your done with tx and wish you SVR ,good luck with everything!!
Holy cow! I didn't realize my original post was soooo long! I must have had word overload at the time...haha. Thank you all for your support.
YuK: It was hard for me to save all my vacation for the end of treatment because there were many days during treatment I would have like to have called in sick (because I was sick) but I pushed on and saved those days and I'm so glad I did. Having these 4 weeks to put myself back together is priceless.
Justme53: I was kind of a fitness nut prior to starting treatment last year so my 9 mile bike rides and 1 hour rollerblading are actually a fraction of my pre-treatment workouts...so it's all relative. However, if someone would have asked me at any moment during my 48 weeks of treatment if I thought I would be back on my bicycle or rollerblades within a week of EOT, I would have said "Hell NO -- not possible!" Lucky for me it was possible.
Andiamo1: You didn't plagiarize anything...lol...it's just a "like minds" kind of thing. I'm glad you posted your 18 mos post TX status -- I love reading about how and what people are doing post treatment. Glad for your SVR!!! I hope/pray for the same. :)
Isobella and Marcia2202: Yes, it's great to feel better -- and it doesn't take much to "feel better" in comparison to during treatment. I hope you both continue your "feeling better" march forward too.
comeagain/Jan: You made me smile with the "my kind of girl" remark...thank you. :) I got hooked on rollerblading about 15 years ago and I entered a half-marathon skate race and finished the 13.2(?) miles in 55 minutes. I continued those speed workouts for several years until one day a piece of debris from the trail got caught in my skate wheel just at the perfect angle to actually act as an instant and unexpected braking mechanism and I went flying through the air like superman and then landed flat on my outstretched body and skidded down the trail leaving my skin behind. After I healed I gave up the super speed stuff...kind of.
