imageRumpidito - What a mess!  Looks like I am a stage 3A not a 2B.  Saw radiologist today she wants PET scan NOW.  Can't do it, insurance has not approved it yet.  She needs another deeper anal tumor biopsy done IF the vaginal one comes back negative.  Radiologist is unhappy that I am allergic to sulfa as it is in Domboro powder.  Having another CT tomorrow.  Might need a bag after all of this as probably will lose sphincter function.  Nothing but bad news today. …More…

imagePatti - More Confused...Watchful Waiting???  I met with the Oncologist yesterday and left feeling more confused than ever before. Recently a fine needle biopsy found B Cell Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma. After more blood work and CT scans the doctor decided not to remove the Lymph node in my neck or to do a bone marrow biopsy. He said my blood work looked like the Lymphoma was "behaving" at this time. They are still reviewing my upper body CT scans and the lower scans did not show any …More…

imageLyssa - from the Ovarian Files  So... yesterday I went for the usual ultrasound and bloodwork. The IVF doctor seemed very happy with what he saw. He saw 13 follicles total, not all of them were mature, but still thirteen possible eggs. I think it was 6 on my left and 7 on my right. He said we'd probably trigger in a day or two. Mind you, just because I have 13 follicles, doesn't mean I'll get 13 eggs, out of 13 follicles, maybe only 8 [as …More…

imageJames - Update  I don't post here nearly as often as I should! I am doing great, I am no longer getting the pet scans and will only get those if there is a reason to do so. Here is my progress: Taste is about 90% of pre treatment and I am okay with that. Ringing in my ears is bearable. Gained all of my pre-treatment weight back plus too much more - currently on a diet to shed some back off. I now wear glasses, doc says not …More…

imageMike Rada - Tubing not in a river or on snow ......done both  THIS TUBING BLOWS !   Its a slap your Grandma reminder of those wonderful days of Radiation.  When I went for tour of the "wound center" I walked in and immediately had a knee twitching stomach wrenching reminder of my treatments. Now granted its way bigger, clear has TV and Music for noise, and a great staff just like my other tomb did but somehow it as eerily similiar.  I went in for my first treatment and the other patients called …More…

imageVirginia - The Storm  Once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive.  You won't even be sure, in fact, weather the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. A post on Facebook's Life's a Bitch site.  …More…
