Re: The hard road after chemo

That period after chemo was horrible for me. My feet felt like bricks and the pain was unbearable! My hands were horrible and I had little control over them. I couldn't wash my face, write, or get dressed. I would fall over and was unsteady on my feet. Things would fall out of my hands. I had such l...

Re: Need help/advice please

When I was first diagnosed, I wanted surgery right away! I was eager to get started. However, a week is not a long time in this fight. The choice is yours, but I would wait the week and hear what MDA has to offer. They usually have a promising, cutting edge plan. If treatment at MDA is an option, I ...

Deported Today!!!!

Hi friends!
Had my port removed today!!! It served its purpose for three years but I'm happy to be rid of it.
I never thought I'd ever get rid of that thing! Tender at the incision site but feeling great!! I hope I never need it again :/
It was a constant reminder of CC. Happy day. :)

Re: PET scan today

I know what you mean about the arthritic feeling. It is starting to get better but my right elbow still aches. It hurts when I bend it to hold a book open.
I haven't figured out which chemo agent caused it.
Good luck on your scan.

Re: Ashlee's Scan Report - Not good

Oh Ashlee, this is heartbreaking news. It's only been four months. I always hate when they give you the bad news but soon after they develop a plan and things look brighter. You have beat this down before and you can do it again!!!!
I believe that!
Thinking of you my friend.
