Re: This could be LONG ... very long !

So sorry to hear about your mother. I too am swing chickens for a speedy recovery. It's amazing how they have improved that surgery. At one time, long hospital stay followed by long rehab stay. A friend of mine broke her hip last years. Surgery, out of hospital in a few days. She was in rehab about ...

If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone tell me that coffee enemas cure cancer, I could treat myself to a fine pair of shoes.

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

We all know that BigCarrot owns the media. We chose a very aggressive conventional western medicine treatment. It was the right choice for us and we're seeing good results. I too got a very aggressive conventional western medicine treatment and I am very much alive today. I told my Onc I would do W...

Hi Diane, I also hope he can get one more day in at the casino. Lee Hi Lee, Ron stopped going to the casino a few months ago as it was costing him to much money. He suddenly realized his brain was no longer clear enough to play the VLTs any more (I was so happy about his stopping) :D Diane Hi Diane...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

Hi Diane, Yes thank you for the update on our Frenchie. I'm sorry it was a difficult visit. I hope and pray he is able to enjoy this last summer. He is the "energizer bunny" and he just might do it especially when he puts his mind to do something. He has beat the cancer odds over & ove...

Re: Is it ok to share good reports while getting chemo treatment

I would yes if you already know the person and their history. If it's a complete stranger who just got some bad news, might be a bit hard for this stranger to swallow.

Butt by all means, pass it along here and CONGRATULATIONS on your good news. That the best kind of news :D .

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

This is a conspiracy of the carrot industry. BigCarrot wants us to be dependent on their product to turn orange. They don't want you to know the truth. You can turn orange from just a spray tan. I've been on the run from BigCarrot for a long time. I know their thugs will eventually find and silence...

Re: Surgery is over

I have already decided that I am not going to take hormone replacement. I am at a very high risk for breast cancer and don't want to add to it. Me too. My biggest problem is hot flashes.

Re: Partial pathology results

I can't remember, you had problems with them in the past. What was it? For what it's worth, I had fertility issues, I could get pregnant, butt would always lose it. During my last pregnancy, GYN had to go in and take fetus out. Also tied my tubes at that point. Anyway following the surgery, he advis...

Re: What to expect?

Hi and welcome, so very sorry for the reason you are here. If you do indeed have cancer, more than likely you will probably do chemo/radiation prior to surgery for about 5 weeks. This help shrinks the tumor and helps the surgeon get clean margins. Following radiation, recovery 6-8 weeks. Then surger...

Re: Chemo start date . . . still has drains/taking antibiotics

If your DH still has tubes on July 17, they might want to hold off chemo, as chemo makes it harder for the body to heal. I'm going to throw this out there, it really helped me. Walking is probably one of the best things he can do to help with the healing process. I found even after I was home from t...
