imageTammy - Pneuminitis  Doing some PT for the swollen wrist and hand.  It's helping and the therapist I see is great.  To the point and lets fix this kind of woman.  Love that!  As far as the feeling 'crappy' and 'crappier' for the last few months....  chest xray and chest MRI show  a 'thickening' (doctors words).  Looks like radiation pnueminits but they cant understand how that happened, its a less that 1 percent chance with BC.  Well, it didnt make it up.  Believe …More…

imageMichele - Writing Helps  I will never tire of writing the story of me and my experiences as a seven, soon to be eight, year survivor of stage IV anal cancer. A lot of my life is consumed with maintaining or improving my well being. I think I have something a-kin to PTSD only this one is caused by cancer not war. I understand that people are tired of my cancer and being included in my essays. I need to just “get over it” for …More…

imageQm2 - 6 year check up  It has been a long time since I posted or visited this site, but today I just thought I would post something and to say that if it hadn't been for this site I would have had a much harder time dealing with my tonsil cancer. Thank You to everyone that helped me. My ENT doctors told me recently that everything was ok and from now on she would only need to see me once a year. I hope that everyone …More…

imageNeal - POEM - What Color  I copied (freehand drawn) a drawing of Snoopy with a bouquet of flowers and the caption is ...."you are on my mind"....hopefully this link works. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10211266067828086&set=a.10208902106450529.1073741827.1251156678&type=3 This poem is about something we all share in common, in one degree or another, and although we cannot fix each other, we can be "with" each other WHAT COLOR? Once I had an idea, and thought what color is pain what color suffering, a common affliction of each human soul? is it blue for sad is it red for mad or bleeding …More…

imageSharon - Round 2  I made it through my second treatment of Rituxan.  Things went pretty well until about 20 minutes in, when my back and chest began to spasm.  It was extremely painful but I was given Percocet and the spasms eased up quickly.  We finally got the medications figured out so this time the side effects were minimal except for the nausea.  I still haven't found a good solution but we keep working on it.   I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.   I …More…

imageJana - Happy Holidays  Just want to say how thankful I am to all of you!  BFAC is such a wonderful place for support and love.  Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday and many more years of health and happiness. Wanted to share the joy of my life, Madelyn my 6 month old grand baby.  So thankful she is in my life.  Sorry she is sideways - grandma is not too techy :) XOXO Jana …More…

imageDianne58 - Dianne's Update after Proton Radiation Treatment  Great news first, - just had my PET scan 6 weeks after my Proton Radiation treatment for recurrence. As of now,  I have  no measurable disease in my body.  All the cancer in the pelvic and sacrum area is gone.  I am so grateful that I was able to have the Proton Radiation treatment.  It may have saved my life.  For the first time in over a year, I do not have pain in my sacrum area and can exercise …More…

imageSterling - The Voice...and scanxiety  Had my 5 year scan.  That means thyrogen shots, I-131 tracer dosage, colonoscopy grade cleansing (magnesium citrate "the gift that keeps on giving"), and then the scan. Even though the "gamma camera" is nothing more than laying under a big flat plate that moves slooooooooooooooowly, just the thought of it brought scanxiety.  Even though my type of cancer is statistically very non-aggressive, I still worried. Silly me.  I thought I learned many years ago that no matter your burden, you need not look …More…

imageMayday - 3B to cancer free and still free.  I can't believe it's been so long since I posted here - just shows how selfish I can be because at one stage I was on here nearly every day reading the posts and looking for support.  I am just back to say that yes you can, and most of you will, go from stage 3B to cancer free with no recurrance nor extra treatment after chemo radiation.  Nearly 7 years since my initial diagnosis, my daughter is now 21 …More…
