imageMary - Rise  I won't just survive Oh, you will see me thrive Can't write my story I'm beyond the archetype I won't just conform No matter how you shake my core 'Cause my roots, they run deep, oh Oh, ye of so little faith Don't doubt it, don't doubt it Victory is in my veins I know it, I know it And I will not negotiate I'll fight it, I'll fight it I will transform When, when the fire's at my feet again And the vultures all start circling They're whispering, "You're out of time," But still I rise This …More…

imageMary - Followup to Anoscopy Question and Biopsy Issue  I am up and down and back and forth on the issue of my anoscopy and possible biopsy. One of my biggest problems in my life has been that I am easily influenced by other people.  One person says one thing, I go with that.  Another person says the complete opposite, then I go with that.  It’s hard for me to determine with confidence what is best.  When I posted my question about it to this and another group I’m …More…

imageCarol - Eight Months Later  It's been almost eight months since the surgery. I did not hear from the doctor so I sent a message and discovered that the genetic studies were negative. The studies were for known genetic markers and none were found. Since my mother also had uterine cancer, perhaps there is a genetic connection in my family, just not one that is known generally to the medical community. Next month I'll have a colonoscopy. Ugh! My oncologist stressed the importance of getting routine procedures …More…

imageAnnabelle - It'[s all over - well I hope so    Went down to London yesterday for my final! check up. Felt anxious as my breast has been feeling tender lately. Lovely oncologist gave me a very thorough examination. Oddly she stared examining my left breast first. Then she explained she hadn't got the wrong breast but checks the "normal" one first the can compare my right breast with it. Everything was perfectly fine & said although it is a year - yes can you believe it - since I finished …More…

imageCorky - Was waiting to post this...  Hello everyone! I didn't want to post anything about Corky til now.  We had a setback on his first petscan at the end of June.  It showed a lymph node lit up on his left side of his neck right by his carotid artery.  We had it biopsied right befor the 4th of July and it was positive.  SO... we kinda started over.. He had a left neck dissection which removed 11 more lymph nodes.  The good news was that only the …More…

imageShawna - The Adventure Continues...  I was diagnosed on March 9, 2015, with Lung and Brain Cancer.  I didnt' find out about stage 4 or specifically what type of cancer until March 17, when they operated to remove the brain tumor and did a biopsy. Stage 4 NSC Lung Cancer with BrainMets. After the brain surgery, I was given a PET scan which revealed possible activity in my lady parts.  They did a very painful cervical biopsy, then exploratory surgery when the biopsy showed nothing. …More…

imageMary - Question about Anoscopy  I saw a colorectal surgeon today for the first time.  She feels the anoscopy (and possible biopsy) should be done 8 to 10 weeks after treatment, instead of 3 months afterwards.  (My treatment ended 8/13/2016.)  It is her position that it be done 8-10 weeks after treatment.  She actually suggested doing it tomorrow, but I wasn't ready for that!  I was surprised at the sense of urgency to do the anoscopy so soon and mentioned that the radiation continues working …More…
