Re: Why dont they..

I can't answer your question but I often wondered the same thing about chemo as I sat in the infusion center, other patients were eating, drinking, etc. while getting juiced. I felt like the odd ball, like everyone was starring at me, as I was exhausted, unshaven and green with ungodly nausea. There...

Re: A friend pushing 'Snake oil cures"

So funny Judy...blame them The best thing oncologist told our 25 yr old son when diagnosed was nothing he did or ate or drank made him get stage 4 terminal cancer. There were things that didn't help but at that age none of those started a tiny cancerous polyp in his colon probably when he was still...

Re: Can anyone help me?

We all know from experience how badly you want all the answers immediately, sorry to say it doesn't happen that way. No one here can give you staging info, you will most likely get that after more tests by your Dr. A cancer diagnosis is a hard thing to accept, we all look to blame someone or somethi...

Re: A friend pushing 'Snake oil cures"

canadiandaughter: you have more tolerance than I have. I get what you're saying, and I do "excuse" the random idiotic things people occasionally say, but when a person continually keeps harping on snake oil crap, I do question their motives. I don't think it's just because they want to he...

Re: If anyone can help me it would be so appreciated!!

After my port incision healed I showered covering my port with cling wrap and taped the edges down with paper tape... it does works. The pump is hard to sleep with, I hung mine on the bed post or stuck it under my pillow. All the cold sensitivity and other symptoms sound about par for the course. Ha...

I agree, most people do mean well. It's the ones who keep on pushing and telling me how to "cure" cancer that ruffles my feathers, especially when they don't have cancer.

Re: How to stop hating chemo day???

Wish I could offer a solution. I always dreaded the next treatment, but they did end and so far, seem to have worked. I still hate it for anyone else going thru it, it does suck. I've had my first clear CT scan... so was it worth it? Yes, I'm alive and NED for the moment. Keep fighting!

Re: A friend pushing 'Snake oil cures"

I have been going nuts over my dear sis who keeps reminding me I should eat more healthily, and eat more brocoli because if I did that earlier I might not have gotten cancer at all. I sometimes drive around town looking at people thinking, he's fat, he should have cancer, she clearly eats too much,...

Re: A friend pushing 'Snake oil cures"

My husband chose to go the non-conventional route but we would never give that advice to anyone we know with cancer. We only tell them what he is doing. When my cousin's husband was dx he took the traditional route and when he passed away my husband said we should have got him on the Oncolyn sooner...

Re: A friend pushing 'Snake oil cures"

Thanks for the replies! I have taken the approach of...convince me, I want to believe also, but she has offered no basis for her beliefs, no names, no phone numbers, nothing! My "friend" is educated and normally a very reasonable person, she does not have cancer, for the life of me, I can'...
