Hopefully it's nothing! How long do you have to wait for results?

Re: 1st bad scanning... advice please!!

I only had one met, but it was pretty big. After 7 rounds when they did my reaction, it was 95% necrotic and had shrunk quite a bit. I had an amazing response to the drugs, I really hope he does too! The Avastin will exaggerate the side effects of the rest of the drugs. Nosebleeds, hair loss, bruisi...

Re: 1st bad scanning... advice please!!

He has a lot of liver mets, right? No mention of Avastin? Worked wonders for me!

I'm glad they are taking him on.

Re: Just need to vent because I’m angry

So currently, I'm on FOLFOX and get the take home pump (was also on Avastin before liver resection) and I have zero nausea issues. I get steroids and anti nausea meds before infusion and stay on them until disconnected. Let your sister know that some random internet stranger doesn't get sick so mayb...

Re: I'm getting worried

My primary tumor was in my sigmoid. Surgery was laparoscopic and I was up a few hours after surgery. Recovery was quite easy, very little pain.

I hope your gallbladder is just misbehaving and there's no malignancies in there!

Re: My hair is falling out.

Only two rounds left and I'm losing a very small amount of hair again. I'd shaved it all off and it's probably half an inch long now? I'm trying not to sweat it. If it comes out in clumps again.....BZZZZZZZZZZZZ! :lol:

Re: Just need to vent because I’m angry

I disagree about it not being fair to be angry. She has a right to her feelings too, those aren't invalid. I imagine it's hard to be the family member in this journey. What wouldn't be fair would be venting to her sister about how angry she is currently. This is a great place to vent about how shitt...

Re: Surgery here, and done.

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't mind at all being left alone at the hospital. Binge watching garbage tv, napping when I wanted, meals and pain meds delivered right to me...it wasn't half bad!!

Re: Happy Birthday to me!!

I get my on body injector every cycle, my bone marrow is just lazy. Get to work damnit, you have one job!!

As for the mopping robot, it's amazing. My kitchen floor is so clean. We have 5 really big inside dogs, so this is a game changer. We also have zero carpet, so your mileage may vary!
