Re: Female Pains AFTER radiation, No Doc will Listen...

Just an update - refused additional chemo. I'm good. I'm not in for any more damage. I actually felt fine before going in - aside from the complete blockage. My everything was normal - aside from the tumor. My cea is now .78 and I'm done. No more, and I'm taking my chances. I'm not saying thats righ...

Re: T3cN2a, refusing chemotherapy?

I realize this is an old thread. I'm yT3bN1. I refused extra chemo. Same reason as you. I applaud your decision as being the one for you. Sticking to your guns. I'm trying to do the same. ANy regrets? You will be at your five year mark. I haven't made one year yet. I don't regret refusing...yet. I h...

Re: Radiation induced menopause

My onc did not go over this either. The little video glassed over it like it was nothing. When I asked outright, he said "These things rarely happen." Bull shit! Here I am in menopause, almost in osteoporosis, and a little stenosis - but we had sex lite rabbits despite pain, tightness and ...

Re: Female Pains AFTER radiation, No Doc will Listen...

Took too long for my post to go up - I never followed up. Not many replies, so I guess no one else had this pain but us? Those pains eventually went away, but I don't know what it was. I'm changing my oncologist. I have no trust for her. She can't take what I feel as a crippling UTI seriously or com...

Re: Just scared

I feel you. I'm scared sh**less myself. I'm 40. Diagnosed 3 months ago. I don't think I will like 2 more years. I think we're all scared to die. We let people down. We give up. You have sure been on the cancer train more than I, and you sound as if you are at peace with your decisions and have overc...

Re: Female Pains AFTER radiation, No Doc will Listen...

The pains did go away, but no one cared to figure out what that was. I am in an I hate everyone mood, and I haven't looked at further emails from my oncologist who said "I hope you're feeling better." I told her I was on an island. I said "You know what?, never mind. I see I am on my ...

Female Pains AFTER radiation, No Doc will Listen...

This is more of a rant than a question...I'm coloretal cancer stage IIIb. Initial emergency colostomy, then went through 5 weeks of pelvic radiation with xeloda. The very last week of Radiation I thought I had a yeast infection, so I got the antibiotic. Then it started to feel like a UTI. I asked fo...

Re: Colostomy

The Colostomy is not as bad as I thought. You will make it through, but there are bad days. The most helpful person to me has been the rep at the manufacturer coloplast. He helped me SOOOO much with product. You will be glad you did it.
