The Chemo Guy

© Rebecca Teal

My Bone Scan results are fine :o)

Today I saw The Chemo Guy. He copped a feel and had a squidge…I started a bit when, as he was measuring with his measuring thing, he said out loud “5cm”. “Um…it was only 3cm before”, I said. “Swelling”, he said, “from the biopsy” “Phew!”

He told us the procedure for the treatment, which drugs he’ll be using and the 5842 side effects. You wouldn’t believe some of that stuff. So, yikes! It seems I have to stay as healthy as I can because my immune system will be compromised. I have to take my temperature twice a day and if it reaches 37.5 I have to call the clinic. So I shall be avoiding hotness and steaminess but not naughtiness ;o) In my favour I have the health and fitness of a thirty year old, a diet which is as good as it gets and a pretty darn healthy lifestyle.

I have an appointment booked to have a coil marker inserted nest week (I googled images…SO wish I hadn’t!) along with the already booked CT Scan and Heart Echo and chemotherapy will start in about two weeks.

All good news so far, apart from the obvious crap stuff and I’m hoping the CT Scan keeps it good.

Bath Time

Doing laundry in the bath? Doesn't everyone?


With everything that's been going on, I haven't been on cam for a couple of weeks. I will be back whenever I can but schedules have not been set yet and things are very random and short notice. This will all settle down into a routine.

It has however, left me pretty deficient in the tokens department and people,
I would be so grateful for any offline tips or purchases (see my video list).
Any loads to my Payoneer card will also be very appreciated.

I'm sure I can reward your generosity...naughty MFC chat and texting is fun!

And of course, I'm frequently online on my member account x_Rebecca_x

Please help me out...I want to be the naughtiest, sexiest patient ever but I still need to pay my bills!

Wigs and Bones and Burgers (Veggie wrap)

© Rebecca Teal

Yesterday I had a wig consultation. I also had a bone scan at very short notice...they called me the afternoon before! My wig appointment was for 10am but this didn't leave enough time to get to the hospital for the scan so the Wig Shop actually opened half an hour early for me. I really want to thank the lady who spent so long with me and seemed to know, without me saying, what I was thinking and feeling. I'm sorry, I don't know if you are Doreen or Julie but you are wonderful.

So, here I am playing with wigs and pulling faces

                 
My real hair               I like this one                  Yes,  I like this


 
Yeah, I loooooooove this!

This sort of grew on me, I may well have one like this, too. What do you all think?

 
But I'm thinking....not blonde.

Next stop was at the hospital to be injected with glow in the dark radio active stuff. I had to wait two hours before it had done what it had to do for the scan...

so Mr T and I had a late breakfast at a well known food outlet.
(Other food outlets are available!)

 
This is the Bone Scanner...it's quite a beast. I wonder how much such a thing costs and I'm grateful for the health care which is unquestioningly available to me.

Next week I have an appointment with the Chemo Guy to assess dosage and set a schedule. The week after I have an appointment for a CT Scan. I'm still waiting for dates for a Heart Echo and blood tests.

On a lighter note, Mr T took advantage of me in a most shameful manner as I bent over the kitchen table. This evening, I think I may return the favour ;o)

Good News Bad News

© Rebecca Teal                                        

Good morning, everyone. I haven't been on cam nor posted here for a while because I have been seeing doctors and surgeons. The BAD NEWS is I have Breast Cancer. The GOOD NEWS is it's treatable although the treatment will be tough. I have a fantastic care team and I have the wonderful Mr T so I consider myself to be very lucky.

I'm currently having all the tests and check ups pre-chemotherapy to make sure I'm fully prepared so I have about a month before that begins.

I shall still be camming, (I intend to be the sexiest patient ever) sometimes to be naughty, sometimes simply to chat but naughtiness will not cease...
a girl still has needs  ;o)

The biopsy was a little tricky as I only have little boobs
but it gave the doctors what they needed. It left me rather bruised
but nothing that Mr T can't kiss better!

 
 This was five days later!
(Ha ha...my vest flattened my nipple)

So, I need you all in my corner. I want you to keep ME smiling on the tough days and I want to keep YOU smiling on the not so tough days.
