imageSarah - Good News and Musings - 4 weeks post treatment    Good news! Though I won't get scanned for another couple of months (which will be the real moment of truth), I had a check up this week and everything indicates that my treatment has been a complete success.   What an extraordinary 12 weeks... I've learnt so much from this unexpected and unwanted journey.   Firstly I learnt that cancer isn't always a death sentence. This has been a major revalation for me as I previously based my perception of cancer on my mother, who sadly lasted just six months from diagnosis (of …More…

imageJenny Warrior- Amazon Woman Style - Life after Cancer. Cue the Fibromyalgia  All and all, I'll take it. Fibromyalgia got me; otherwise known as pain without diagnosis. Neurotransmitters and pain sensors are intense flu-like symptoms. Green drinks, gluten free, alkalizing, probiotic, working out, tumeric, curcumin, sleep, maganesium, throw in a touch of Cymbalta, and other supplements. Inflame. deflame. Inflame. and repeat. Or is it tamoxifen? But, all and all; I'll take it. …More…

imageRick - Cindi Raney  ~~When I was diagnosed in January 2014 the chaplain suggested I come to his support group one Tuesday evening a month. The next meeting was in a couple of weeks and I attended. I was depressed and scared.  I told my story in tears and vented the frustration I felt.  Also in attendance was Cindi Raney. She introduced herself as a thirteen year survivor of breast cancer.  Her story was a long road of chemo working for a while then …More…

imageTom - Going in for 3T MRI next Tues  Hi folks, I finally got my MRI lined up to see if there's any cancer still there. After dropping my PSA from 4.29 to 1.38 I'm looking to find that it's gone. If the MRI does see any tumors, then we'll do a VERY targeted biopsy to check the levels. Say a prayer for clean results for me please. Be blessed, Tom

imageGadsue - Hit a wall  Joe's latest CT shows more growth of all cancers in lungs and nodes and more fluid in both lungs, Dr has run out of ideas and mentioned Hospice.  Joe panicked and requested another round of chemo altho he's very weak.  He lost another 10 lbs ths week, doc says it's from the cancer, all the old chemo is out of his system.  I have to go along with the new chemo even tho it's the 4th drug we've tried with …More…

imageDan - 14 months - diagnostic - all clear  I'm happy to report that my latest scan came back all clear.   It was just a simple lung x-ray, but since the plan is to have only x-rays every 6 months, I'm especially happy to get this NED report.  Next time though, I don't think I'll get my x-ray on a Friday.  I don't worry about it too much, but I'd be fibbin if I said I didn't worry at all over the Memorial day weekend. This exam was with …More…
