Re: No longer NED- back in right ovary

Hello...I had a met to one ovary in 2010. I then had both ovaries removed, not a complete hysterectomy. Because my ovary had burst between diagnosis and surgery, I decided to pursue HIPEC. But I didn't do systemic chemo at that time. It was almost 5 years before I had to have systemic chemo for lung...

Live your life ...

Re: Nuelasta Injector

Thanks for your insight. I will ask about the possibility of giving myself the Nuelasta shot. They could possibly fill it at the pharmacy while I’m in the chair. I usually take the shot in the stomach, because my arms bruise so easily. I go to MSKCC Monmouth for treatment and see my doctor in NY eve...

Nuelasta Injector

Hi guys...I am due for a Folfiri & Avastin treatment on Monday. The usual plan is that I go back for disconnect on Wednesday for disconnect and also get a Nuelasta shot at that time. Years ago, when I was receiving treatment at a different facility, I would go back for disconnect on the given da...

Re: Stage 4 for 4 years, looking for advice

Hi Michelle...I am a patient at MSKCC and when a lung met showed up a few years after my original Stage 3 diagnosis, my doc did not recommend chemo after VATS. And I was good with that. I've been dealing with cancer for almost 12 years now, and I am so glad that my doc only recommends chemo at times...

Re: 10 Years and Counting

Hi SF! So great for you to check in and give inspiration to others. It was due to your story that I pursued HIPEC and for that, I will always be grateful. I'm here 11 years after my diagnosis, and this place is/was such an amazing source of information. I have have had various treatments and surgeri...

Re: Just diagnosed

I live in NJ and go to MSKCC. It's worth the drive. And now they have spaces in Monmouth, Bergen and Basking Ridge. Also Long Island? When i was first diagnosed by a local gastro, I immediately went to MSKCC. I had surgery there and then when it came time for chemo, my doc recommended someone local,...
