imageBryan - RPLND surgeons   Been searching in vain for surgeons who have experience performing this RPLND surgery in Phoenix Az area... Technique matters and it seems there are not a lot of surgeons who do this complicated procedure., unbelievable as that procedure is the only option available to me other than chemo. Appreciate any thoughts on this matter...
Type: Testicular Cancer

imageSterling - Synthroid - the continuing saga  I complained about how I was feeling and my endocrinologist asked me to come in for a blood test. Name   Value   Reference Range TSH   0.59   0.34 - 5.60 uIU/mL TT3   0.85   0.62 - 1.62 ng/mL FT4   1.44   0.62 - 1.58 ng/d So I'm having the normal heart pounding and sweating.  Seems like if it is over about 75° and /or any humidity I sweat profusely.  Anyway, I went back to my internists at the end of May and he said I had a "Right Bundle Branch Block"...all of a sudden ...after 59 years...whomp …More…

imagePatty - GREAT NEWS!!!!! to my BFAC Family  This is a post that I have prayed I would be able to make. The gratitude and true thanks for your prayers, healing thoughts, and concern has been more powerful that I could ever descibe.

It was so hard though necessary so the social worker, pastoral care and Dr. W. helped …More…

imageLisa - Steri-strip removed from neck  The wait is finally least for viewing my incision. PA removed steri- strip, and I was able to see surgeon's handiwork. He did an excellent job as far as throat slicing is concerned (I love my doc). Still no pathology results, and PA explained that sometimes on cases that are not cut and dry (pardon the pun)they are sent to an outside pathologist for review. Okay...that doesn't make the wait less anxious but, okay. Blood tests in six …More…

imageBetsy - Overwhelmed!!!  I just returned from a quick trip to Houston, MD Anderson. I had MRI, enema CT, and flex sig. The MRI and CT show I have something considered stable at the site of my recurrence. It is in the wall of my anus from what can be gathered from the flex sig. (considered pelvic area) The MRI sizes it bigger than it was in April, the CT was unable to size due to the tumor marker disturbance, but the radiologist …More…

imageAmy - Weight Loss...Is it a Good Thing?  So, I started to work out regularly and diet in March. Since then I have lost 20 pounds, which would normally be a thing to celebrate, but I can't seem to determine if the weight loss is due to diet and exercise or my cancer. Ugh. I asked my doctor about it and she said that it could be because the tumors are shrinking and not to worry about it (but of course I am). It seems as if every ache, …More…
