Re: Hair removal - help?

Unfortunately I do not have any suggestions, but that seems so unfair (not that anything is ever "fair" with this damn disease): on one side the treatment makes you lose the hair you'd like to keep, on the other it makes some unwanted hair grow! Reminds me of grass in the backyard - always...

Maybe also a few giant jellyfish... This one was several feet across!

Re: Currently in the ER...woo.

Like others above I wonder if that's caused by Avastin? Hopefully nothing *too* serious!

A happy seal. Picture taken in 2016 by hubby while conducting research in Antarctica (on giant sea spiders. Yes, that's true!)

There's a slight shortage of cats. Here's my 15-year-old Gali.

Re: 2 year scan

Woot woot!! My husband will never be NED (once cancer is in the bone, the specialists won't ever call it NED because it's still there, you can rarely remove the bone) but it's always great to read that others have reached this important milestone. May it stay that way!

Re: Mop up chemo - Port vs non-port for Oxi?

A few words about my husband's experience with a port. The first one, which was implanted on his right side, always "bugged" him. He could feel it. It wasn't painful, but annoying, like a slight ache that doesn't ever go away. When he finished his 6 adjuvant cycles of XELOX last Fall, he h...

Re: Things I should know about Avastin

I can only concur to all that has been said above. My husband has had 7 cycles of Avastin so far and aside from a runny nose, a little blood when he blows it in the morning and an elevated blood pressure, he's been fine. Side effects are WAY easier to tolerate than those of chemo! At least in his ex...

Re: This SUCKS, and we haven’t even begun to fight

Well, my best friend (very smart! Science background!) messaged me yesterday about this person she knows, who does magnetism and apparently has great results with cancer patients "even from a photograph" (insert "double face palm" meme here). I understand that people are grapplin...
