topsyturner Tue 19-Feb-13 14:28:15

Good luck at the surgeons kk
Hope the defoliation of your legs helps !

KurriKurri Tue 19-Feb-13 14:55:55

legs defoliated, and Dh has come up with the cunning plan of not wearing my prosthesis, but using my softie as that weighs less grin

MAS - will bear in mind your wedding invitation service, thank you smile

Whichever way it goes this afternoon - yay or nay - I am going to treat myself to a cappuchino and a giant cake afterwards grin

jchocchip Tue 19-Feb-13 15:02:24

Good luck kk, enjoy your cake!
We had a lovely day out - got riverbus from tate britain to tate modern and it was blue skies all the way. Tube to marylebone and now on train to B'ham. I'll be home in time for bed!

Lonecatwithkitten Tue 19-Feb-13 15:37:23

A lovely shiny new thread (breaths on the thread and polishes it with her sleeve).
KK have a lovely big bit of cake for me that is the only thing I miss as a coeliac is cake out is really poor - at home it's okay.
DD is delighted with herself as she got her Maths gold certificate today and went off to the childminders chuffed to bits.

jane sounds a fab day - am thinking we might walk from the South Bank to Tate Modern on Friday - then across wobbly bridge for T to see and photograph all his favourite buildings. Would really quite like to see the Lichtenstein exhibition too.
Well done to dd lonecat ! Gold certificate impressive grin

Can I place my rocky road on the trolley ? Have dinner to cook and logs to stack. Be back later.

smee Tue 19-Feb-13 17:40:28

Waving from afar. Am at my parents. Will catch up, just grabbing my space on the sofa. Waiting for Kurri with cake xx smile

KurriKurri Tue 19-Feb-13 17:44:56

I'm back grin Plastic surgeon was so nice (she is a lovely person as well as being stunningly beautiful envy) anyway she said I had done really well with the weight loss and I was obviously trying very hard, but she said that because its a long op. and then you are lying in bed for a week afterwards, you have to be really fit, so she said to come back in six months and she'll put me on her list, but she said I only actually need to lose about another half a stone and to make an appointment sooner if I lose it before six months.

So I am chuffed - I had got myself into a state thinking they would throw me off the list, but she was so nice - she said she'd never do that, when it was obvious someone was really trying, and that a lot of people she tells to lose weight either lose nothing or put weight on.
yay -<excited> I can't wait to get rid of the monoboob look grin

Jane - sounds like a lovely day out, MAS are you going up to London this half term with T?

Lone - well done your DD, gold certificate very impressive smile

I shared cake with DH, actually I haven't had any cake for so long, that I struggled to eat half a bun <astonishment!!>, but I see Pen has put Rocky Road on the trolley - I'm sure I could squeeze a bit of that in grin

I have to go to a committee meeting for my art group tonight, so I shall miss Death in Paradise, will have to watch on catch up.

Has anyone been watching that programme about penguins, Spy in The Huddle, ?- it's brilliant, but it was really sad last night as one of the baby penguins died. sad

smee Tue 19-Feb-13 17:51:44

Ooh well done, Kurri. Cake all round then. Your surgeon sounds lovely, and your new breast will be too am sure. smile

Still got to catch up, but waving to all. smile

Gigondas Tue 19-Feb-13 17:52:58

Yay for kurri- marking place And will be back later.

AshokanFarewell Tue 19-Feb-13 20:03:21

Hi everyone, unfortunately someone in real life has identified me. It's not surprising really as I haven't been that careful with my details but I wasn't expecting anyone I know to be on Mumsnet! Anyway I don't really feel comfortable posting anymore but I wanted to thank you all so much for the wonderful support you've given me and I wish you all the best with your treatment/recovery/getting back to the new normal smile thanks I won't post again but I will pop back every so often to see how you are all getting on!

topsyturner Tue 19-Feb-13 20:08:44

Ach Ash
That's a bugger !
I'm sorry you feel the need to trigger the cloaking device smile
Anything we can help with , feel free to come and ask x

topsyturner Tue 19-Feb-13 20:10:47

Well that's quite good news kk
At least you weren't told to "never darken these doors again" grin
And 1/2 stone to lose ?
Pah , that's nothing !
<said through a mouthful of crumbs as Topsy snarfs a HND home made bannoffee cupcake>

oh ashokan that's a pain - you can always pm us if you need smile -take care and we're thinking of you.
Hooray for nice surgeon and for doing so brilliantly kk - you'll soon be perky on both sides. We're off to that London on Friday !
Waving to smee !
Am going to the secondary support group tomorrow. Hands feeling a bit dry and prickly, but not red at least.

Lonecatwithkitten Tue 19-Feb-13 22:37:34

Oh Ash sorry you have been spotted. It is possible to invoke the cloaking device and then be more careful - I have done itsmile.

What a shame ash. Do pop back and let us know how you are.

Sounds like a good appointment kurri. You will have 7lbs off in no time.

Just want to say huge thanks to Amber and whoever else mentioned vitamin d. Onc checked my levels at my request and he phoned to say I am very deficient so getting supplement prescribed.

Hope gigs is enjoying French France.

Kids off for half term so mumsnet time limited. Back soon.

jchocchip Tue 19-Feb-13 23:40:09

Well done kk - 7lbs sounds do-able... says me who has put about that back on today...
ash sorry to see you go, pop in again later if you can.
I've been up since 5.30am so I'm off to bed, hope I can get up in the morning smile

amberlight Wed 20-Feb-13 06:13:06

Ha, new thread! Excellent! Good news re Vit D test. Need to ring for my blood test results today.
Tea on the trolley, with other beverages and breakfast goodies

Lonecatwithkitten Wed 20-Feb-13 08:44:21

I've got my worry hat on today as we are now 13 days since core biopsies and no news. So I guess I'm going back to clinic next week. However I am due to go to mediation next Thursday at lunchtime and clinic day is Thursday next week. It is ExH and mine first session of mediation which are individual, but have to be on same day as mediator only works in our town one day a week. I don't want ExH to know about all of this until he has to as any platitudes from him will be meaningless. So what is more important getting the ball rolling with mediation to help sort out poor DD's issues or me going to clinic. All on top of the fact that I have full clinics and are somehow trying to keep this quiet at work so it does have an effect on the business.

snailsontour Wed 20-Feb-13 11:06:50

That's good news kurri - 7lbs is very doable isn't it!
Sorry to hear you've been 'identified' Ash, hope you can find a way around it as I have found online support so helpful.
Juggling all those balls must be very hard lone. I feel for you as you really are in an difficult position, no easy answer. Big argument for putting DD first, as that appointment is scheduled with your ExH, so changing that affects other peeps schedule. And your results, whatever they are, a weeks delay won't actually make any difference to treatment etc. but obviously you have all the worry and the waiting is awful!
I have an appointment this afternoon at the dressing clinic - this looks like it could be the unveiling of my new nippssmile

KurriKurri Wed 20-Feb-13 14:06:11

Afternoon all, thank you all for good thoughts regarding my recon. surgery goal smile

Ash - sorry you've been identified, I hope you can sort things out and come back to us, but if it takes a little while, good luck with your treatment - we'll be thinking of you smile

Lone - that is a difficult dilemma for you. I wonder if it is worth you phoning the hospital, you could speak to your breast care nurse and see if she can give you any info, explain the problem with the mediation meeting and she might be able to get the consultant to ring you or something.

amber - hope blood results are good.

Gig how was French France, - good I hope and warmer than here.

gracie - good you are getting a suplementm hope it makes you feel much better. Enjoy half term.

MAS - Be careful in that there London, with all those city folks rushing about grin Hang on to your purse (as my mother always used to say if I went anywhere with a population above double figures grin)

waving to everyone, I've been to yoga this morning which was nice, and -drum roll we have heating in our house again. They were supposed to come yesterday, but when they hadn't turned up by late afternoon Dh phoned them and they made up some guffy excuses, Dh said he didn't believe them and they were obviously making it all up, and he wanted moeny taken off our bill as we were COLD grin - and they turned up at 7.30 this morning. Old lady dog is basking beside the radiator looking very pleased with life grin

Lonecatwithkitten Wed 20-Feb-13 15:15:32

Thank you all. The consultant is on holiday hence so of the delay. I have never met a breast care nurse at the hospital all the liaison is through the consultant's practice manager - I go to one of the new Circle Hospitals which is more like an american hospital in structure than a UK one. I will try giving the practice manager a ring and see what she says.
KK glad you have heating back.

jchocchip Wed 20-Feb-13 16:50:54

Lone I think I changed my results day to fit in with my hols, just meant saw consultant the next day at a diff hospital so it is worth asking for more convenient appointment.
Yay for yoga and heating kk
Finished work early to go home to cat who is not used to empty house. He was quite stressed when I got back last night - tail as big as a loo brush! This morning tried to follow me to work but old ladies dog in park and barked at him.

oh dear lone -it's all very complicated trying to juggle stuff around...hope you can get through to consultant's office.
Hooray for heating kk !
Went to support group which was good - ate garibaldis.
