Re: What do you drink during cold sensitivity?

Hey Tdubz-- Nothing worse than drinking room temperature water, it is just not refreshing when it's not cold. I would have a cup of OJ, but I would let it sit out for a while until it wasn't so cold and then if it started to hurt a little when I swallowed because it was still on the cooler side, I w...

Re: Drove myself to work this morning - felt so liberating!

Aaah, the simple things in life--like being able to drive one's self. So so happy to hear you were able to get back behind the wheel again. As for myself, when I get the car to myself, I am all about blaring my 80s music: Whitney Houston, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, the Bangles. Hopefull...

Heck, I'll spring for a corn dog and a cotton candy when you get off! :lol: Seriously, I am happy to hear you are moving forward and wrapping up the radiation treatments. When I was f...

Re: How long in hospital after surgery?

Good luck with your surgery tomorrow--even if you are anxious about it, and who isn't before such an event, just know that you will have a mental weight lifted as well as the physical loss of the tumor. Keep us posted on how it goes!

Yum! Sounds like food for both the body and soul! So happy to hear you are home and eating some tasty, home cooked food! Glad to hear you are also following what works best for YOU--it's easy for someone who has been successful with their dietary restrictions and their cancer success to make a broad...

It does my heart good to hear that you are adjusting well to your new appendage of sorts. LOL It would be hard not to be self-conscious about it especially so early in, but I honestly don'...

Re: Radiation induced menopause

Yes, I too was forced in to an earlier menopause. I didn't really notice the loss of the periods until about two months out. Was so hard to tell what was what when radiation was making the tumor shed as well and then having surgery seven weeks after end of radiation and stress never helps in that eq...

Re: Another new Forum Member.

Good to hear you are racking up the miles 3 weeks post surgery! I must admit I became a bit obsessive-compulsive about walking (and running pre-surgery) throughout my cancer diagnosis and treatment. It was something positive for my mind and body and most importantly it was something I had control ov...

Re: Another new Forum Member.

Not sure if external weather influences symptoms or not. Yes, cold weather will impact the cold sensitivity that comes with Oxaliplatin. :-( Hopefully where you live it will be a warm six months during your chemo treatments. It definitely is good that you are coming in with such a healthy body and ...
