Re: Beansmama is gone.

This doesn't seem possible! I really did think she was getting better. My heart goes out to her and her family especially her little girl RIP

Re: Xeloda joint and muscle pain/arthritis

Hi there, I had mild osteoarthritis before my treatment and now it's much worse. I've also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'm treating both with yoga and by taking advantage of the new law passed in Ohio regarding medical cannabis. I notice symptoms most when I'm sedentary for too long.

Re: Has anyone heard of schools helping out if you have to move out of state for a month or so?

Dear Nic, Your child's school should be able to meet your family's needs. I was too lazy to check out what state you live in, but here in Ohio we will do whatever it takes for a child to be educated when there is a family illness or a child's illness. We often use Skype at our School District to hel...

Re: Seizing body parts? Don't know what to call this.

My left thumb would get locked in toward the palm and my right knee would seize up after my first FOLFOX tx. I had to be taken off of Oxy after the second tx. due to toxicity. Tell your onc as soon as possible.

Low WBC months after chemo stops

Hi, I was wondering if anyone else experienced a low WBC after chemo? I finished my last dose of Xeloda last may and my WBC recently dropped from around 3.4 to 2.7. I had a bone marrow biopsy yesterday, (holy shit), and now I'm freaking out waiting for the results. Thanks for your replies.
