This cleaning out bug must be contagious. I finally got to do the basics apartment-wise yesterday. Today's mission was to get to the bottom of the "closet full to the brim, but nothing to wear from the waist down" mystery.

The solution proved to be a serious sorting of trousers into 4 piles: ready to wear; time for the cleaners; hold until I lose weight (about 3 fabulous pairs); and ready for the bin (by far the largest number). While at it, I put some other items into the bin pile and generally tidied everything up. I know that I could do this with sweaters, but I am much more current on that front having ditched a few items when I can back with my new cashmere ones. (Shoes need to be added to the clean out list, but not as urgent as trousers.)

I also fixed a fabulous pair of trousers that I bought a couple of months ago, but had never worn because the pockets needed undoing. THEN, I lucked out on eBay and was able to replace the ones I had last worn in London, but tossed when I returned. They were really finished. I am thrilled to find another pair of exactly the same ones. (I was equally thrilled yesterday to find another pair of the jeans that really fit in the fabric I like!!!!

There is now space in my closet!!!

Then off for a 5 mile run by way of the bin. Then got in a bit of strength training helping a neighbor carry a very heavy bag of cat litter to her place.

I cooked up a storm yesterday so don't have to cook dinner tonight Smile

Now, if I can only keep that cleaning bug going for a bit longer. Because who knows when it will strike again??? - Claire

Euphorbia, I do the following things to avoid lymphedema: carry all my bags on my good arm, get all needle pokes and blood pressure cuffs on my good arm, and generally avoid activities that I can feel activating my affected chest and upper arm muscles.

Edited to add: If I am going to Costco, no way am I going alone. I bring my husband with me, or if I really have to go alone, I ask a strong-looking employee to please put that 22-pack of milk jugs (exaggeration!) in my cart for me. I don't even go to the supermarket alone if I am buying large amounts of food for the week. Who knew food could be so heavy!

I think I got a little lymphedema, but I am not sure. At one point, after being too enthusiastic in one day with u-turns, closing the trunk with my left arm, housework and heavy lifting, I felt fullness and discomfort below my armpit, in my side, and still do to a small extent. By far, the worst activity for me is u-turns, because not only do they seem to result in an increase in that pressure feeling, but using the affected arm is unavoidable, and I find that I have to turn the steering wheel pretty hard, at that.

Planks I feel in my abs, so I feel safe doing those.

As far as exercise, I did a 30 second plank and stretched a sore leg throughout the day.

Life is a comedian and I am the bad joke. I was diagnosed at 35, when my husband and I were preparing to have our first child. I found a tiny bump sticking out of my breast, and...surprise!

RE: Lymphedema

Euphorbia, I've been lucky both times (2003 and 2018), and I haven't had lymphedema. However, I guard against it many of the ways that have have been mentioned by others on this thread. I was advised by my PT to wear a compression sleeve for 1 year post mastectomy surgeries, for flying. 1 hour before take off and 1 hour after landing, to help regulate pressure. I bought a compression sleeve online, and have stuck to using it when I fly. It's a preventive / prophylactic measure. Not mentioned by my surgeon, but indeed something that two knowledgeable PT's who treat lymphedema have advised me to do.

There's a breast cancer lymphedema specialty in physical therapy, for treating and preventing lymphedema. The techniques include "manual lymph drainage." My friend (retired now from this exact career in PT) wrote a book to help patients:

https://www.amazon.com/Lymphedema-Breast-Patients-Prevention-Healing/dp/089793458X

After 2003 lumpectomy + axillary node excision, I made sure to never have blood drawn or a shot, or prune roses without good protection, etc. on that right arm. However, now I have had a bilateral mastectomy. In fact, the axillary excision (again) was also on the right side, so I've continued to treat the right arm as being more likely to get lymphedema. Unfortunately, my left side (because any torso surgery, not just axillary node excision puts us at risk), is ALSO at risk for lymphedema. So, I used the compression sleeve on the right side, but will continue to be really careful about any abrasion and possible infection source on both sides. Harrumph, and EEK: Of course, when I have to have blood drawn or a needle poke, I DO worry, but left side is probably safer for me than right side for those things, since I never had axillary node excisions on my left side. Right side TWICE. So, I'm careful with both arms.

I've just spent 1 week in California. 5 days with my sister at Monterey Bay, where we kayaked, biked and hiked. So gorgeous! Then two days with DH in the Los Angeles area, where we had beach walking, visited the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, and celebrated our son's birthday with him. I got several hours of exercise out in nature every day; my favorite type! Off to the pool soon for my usual daily deep water aerobics now that I'm home.

A view from my kayak in Elkhorn Slough (lots of sea otters and birds, I was too busy paddling to photograph much, sorry!), and one of the redwoods and hills on a hike near Big Sur:

HikingLady, I love kayaking Elkhorn Slough!

Spent the weekend with good friends at their cabin in Arnold, CA, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada about two hours drive from Sacramento. A great break, especially in such nice surroundings and with such good company, and I got today off from rads (the clinic was closed!).

One of Arnold's charms is that it is just a few miles from one of California's remaining stands of Giant Sequoias. We took a hike in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park on Sunday. Here are a few pics during our walk.

Martaj...I had AC too. I did AC followed by DD Taxol. It is brutal. I may have fared a little better since I had the AC regime first. I did better with Taxol. AC is know to cause nausea but there are things they can do for you.. Ruth is right call your oncologist, they can help. My first dose was worst...not sure if my body adjusted or I learned how to cope with it but the nausea got better, the fatigue got worse! I remember staying on top of my anti nausea meds at home, eating small meals and snacks frequently, like when I was pregnant, drinking ginger tea, and I kept crackers etc by my bed and eating when I woke up during night, all of that seemed to help. Big hugs.

Beautiful pics Hiking and Octo!

Ruth is right we are having January temps right now. Ran 4 miles yesterday and 4 miles with my running group tonight. Yoga each day also. Wind chills for both runs well below 0*. Thankful I have a group to run with this winter! Helps to have company for the cold temps! Tomorrow looks like it will start warming up and will run 3-4.

Great job to all of you!I

I am doing the same as Ruth, reading a new book from library, warming up with a cup of tea and snuggling in my jammies. 💓

Forgot my fitbit (it was charging) on my Monday evening walk so it only shows 8700!! I actually got to 11K or so. I usually try to charge it when I'm not going out as I generally forget it if it is charging.

Got an hour of circuit training in last night. We had beautiful weather today and while I really wanted to get a run in, it had been a couple days since our energetic 9 yr old dog had been taken for a good walk so 45 min walk with her after work and followed by the pancreatic cancer awareness walk this evening. Our 3rd year walking in memory of my 38 yr old sister in law who passed away from pancreatic cancer. Always a difficult day, but we went out for pizza after and had time together as a family and shared some fun stories of her. Miss her every single day.

Great workouts to all you amazing ladies. Will run tomorrow!

Finally starting to get little energy back after first DD-AC last Friday. Was able to give my dog a decent walk, (which he enjoyed), came back and took a nap. Still get high pulse rate and shortness of breath if I go to fast. Drinking lots fluids, and nausea and intermittant vomiting has lessened. Will attempt 2 walks today. Poor beast misses his walks. He is a 80 pound golden.

Martaj, how old is your dog? My grand-puppy is a 9 month old Boxer/Husky mix, and walking her is a REAL workout!!! Before you have your next chemo you need to tell them that you have been throwing up. That should NOT be happening (feeling like crap-yes, throwing up-no). They need to adjust your anti-nausea meds.

I went to PiYo this morning. Later today our girls volleyball team will play for the Regional Championship, so we will go back & cheer them on (which is somewhat of a workout in itself. Both Thursday & Friday they squeaked out wins in 5 game tie breaker, nail-bitter fashion; lots of jumping up & down for the fans too).
