imageNicole - 1 Year Out. Update and Muscle/ Joint Pain Question  Hello all :) May was one year since last radiation treatment and my April scan was NED. So I am very thankful about that. But over the last year I have struggled with hip pain and muscle spasms and it has become so severe that I had to drop out of school and I have spent most of my time in bed for the last few weeks. In January I decided to go to massage therapy class and I was …More…

imageBarbara - Sometimes I Just Want Understanding  I just wanted to talk to someone who "got it," who understood what it feels like to have cancer. Do you every feel this way?

imageMary - 2nd Chemo Fri - Could I do FU5 only?  1st round I had Cisplatin partly because my doctor was afraid of a little less than 5% of patients who experience a very  serious kidney reaction and partly because I have a liver condition. I have experienced some neuropathy in my right upper foot area ( the toes)  a little in the left foot as well. And I'm afraid if I do Cisplatin again, that will get worse.  I am also afraid of Mitomycin because several have said it's side effects …More…

imageMeagen - Mr'tress  I woke up today and still feel pretty good. I keep waiting for it to hit really hard. But I haven’t gotten really sick yet. Maybe it won’t happen. I mean it still sucks and I am definitely not in as good of shape than before chemo. Maybe my detox is working. Antioxidant, probiotic, nutrient load. Eat as much as possible. Cannabis helps. Golden Triangle might be my fav new strain. It is a good hybrid chem dawg and afghani …More…

imageMarlys - Sarah’s poem - I am still me  My young cancer-widowed friend, Sarah, shared a couple of her poems recently. I was amazed. Beautiful stuff. She writes honestly and vulnerably—wondering if she’ll ever find who she is again—and yet her work is hope-filled.   Jill Rosell Photography   Sarah says that for the longest time she had intended to write stories so she could remember, but the writing wouldn’t flow because she couldn’t recall all the details. After much frustration, she started writing poetry. “This allowed me to capture a moment in time,” she said, …More…

imageMary - Aloe Vesta Perineal Skin Cleanser  I bought three bottles of this stuff only to find it causes a lot of burning.  Genaric flushable wipes don't!   When I look at ingredients of Aloe Vesta, there's a lot of things like lauramine oxide, lemon, citric acid, sodium hydroxide, etc.  Don't know what they all do.  I just know for me, it's not gentle. How is it for anyone else that uses it? …More…

imageJanay - 2nd opinion was mind blowing!  So....went to my 2nd opinion last Friday and received some alarming news.  Got answers from them that my doc has been refusing to give me. First, since I did not receive clear margins after my double mastectomy my survival rate drops from a 70% over 3 years to 50% in the next 18 months. Quite a shock but honest and I appreciated that. More appalling though is the fact that his oral chemo she has had me on is not …More…
