imageDana - When the hair comes back after last chemo?  Hi All, Some updates on my situation. Today I had my last chemo of R-CHOP, chemo # 5. After chemo #4 I had a Pet Scan and it came back negative, no cancer alive left. This was a very good response to R-CHOP and because I refused the radiation my doctor gave me another infusion and she said that I will be fine. So, now I am preparing for the hair to come back. What was your experience with it? How long …More…

imageMichele - Underwear Update  I have written about my underwear plenty of times over the last six plus years. They started out “toxic”, moved on to a “wasteland” (literally), and as radiation began to smolder my nether region became something like a passing fad in my life in 2010. I remember how pleased I was when I was able to put on underwear for the first time post treatment. I vowed that when I was completely healed I was going to indulge in the fanciest of …More…

imageBecky - Oncologist appointment  Just got done seeing an oncologist, who really recommended a trial at Duke University.  I am scared of doing a trial, what if the drugs or treatments kill me or make me so sick that I can't survive?  They are looking at my stains and are leaning to Glioblastoma as the diagnosis, or high grade Astrocytoma.  Either way, not having a reoccurance is the key.  Gonna try my hardest and take this 9 or so months as a fighter, I …More…

imageTerry - Update for Anal Melanoma  Hi everyone:  I am sorry it has been a while since I have been on here.  Well, it seems my cancer is so rare and where I have it there has never been a reported case of per the research the doctors did.  Since I have first wrote, I have had 20 radiation treatments.  They did a research on drug and found 5 they thought might help.  Out of the 5 only 1 was promising.  I did 3 chemo treatment …More…

imageBecky - I HATE CANCER!  I really knew that one day I would get some sort of cancer, as it is always something my family has to fight.  My dad has fought and won against stage 4 cancer at least twice (he has had melanoma several times, kidney cancer, and prostate cancer.)  He is still fighting prostate cancer.  My mom died in 2011 from stomach cancer, which made her waste away and die of not striving.  My sister has had lymphoma.  Many aunts and uncles …More…

imageLaurie - Ovarian Cancer Symptoms  I have not been diagnosed and I'm not even sure I have it, however, my mom passed recently of Stage IV Small Cell Lung Cancer.  There were not treatment options available for her due to the stage and her health issues.  She was put on Hospice and survived 3 months. I've personally had a long history of ovarian cysts that were suspicious (6cm + fluid/solid combination) and removed.  I am post menopause and have not been able to get a doctor to …More…
