Still no treatment plan but pet scan later today so hopefully they don't find anything that changes my stage. The MRI didn't show any lymph node involvement but I know that this scan is more in-depth so I am holding my breath...
I have already told with stage 2b it will be Chemorads so for now I am just preparing for what seems the most common. Combinations starting January I expect.
My question is very trivial really in the scheme of things but right now I am trying to focus on things I actually have control of so I usually dye my own hair (currently blonde) but I have roots for days and I fancy a treat (and also read after treatment getting my hair (if I have any left😔) done by a professional will probably be best. I was just wondering if firstly it's ok to get your hair dyed before treatment (I know it's a stupid question probably!!) and also then what about after?? Same will nails (extensions of just gel overlays) and also getting eyebrows and lashes tinted etc?
I am not vain or anything btw and I am not very good with upkeep usually haha I just want to perk myself up for Christmas :)
As a side note - if any of you have got this far - I just want to say that I don't always post or reply but I am here loitering in the background. I read all your stories and even some dating wayyy back. I am routing for each and every one of you and if anyone needs a buddy or just a vent I am here <3
