Hi, I just finished chemo January 2, 2015 and already I have peach fuzz. It is grey and black. No eyelashes or eyebrows yet. Will see oncologist a the end of the month to see about hormone pill. Anyone been put on hormone pill. I had endometrial cancer and had hysterectomy in Dec, 2011. Did radiation. Recurrence in lymph nodes in March of 2014. Had 6 chemo treatments and I am thrilled to say I am CANCER FREE!!!!
She was my friend in my teens. I can remember her vibrant ways; she was pretty and a bit boyish. She was my sister's classmate but we became close when I worked in a clinic beside their house. We would just talk about anything and since we belonged to the same church, we also shared some "naughty" remarks about the activities we did in our youth organization.
On February 7, 2014, I had nonchalantly waltzed into my diagnostic imaging center for my regular screening mammogram. As usual, I admired the waiting room mural that let me figuratively gaze out to sea from a wooden porch. For the most part I ignored the TV mounted high in a corner, which dispensed "local" news focused mainly on counties south of mine.
Well, after feeling great for a few months after treatment I am now going to be part of a trial in Columbus (phase1) first step after monkeys, poor monkeys, to see how it will do on humans. It isn't supposed to have bad side effects and is supposed to attack the tumor(s) and not good tissue.
My partner (71 yr) was diagonised w. pancreatic cancer (4 cm tumor) on Dec 1 2014; his CA 19-9 was aroud 9,000 on Dec 1; he started his chem (Folfox 6) on Dec 17th, his CA 19-9 jumped to 16,000 and after 4 chemo sessions, his CA 19-9 yesterday registered 40,000. His CT Scan is next Wednesday. Any comments? His LFTs are normal.
He had bacterial infection (index finger).. that started 2nd chemo, but under control.

I found out I had Cancer October 2014. Within that time I had to let go of my job. I ve had chemo and radiation along with side effects and I am on the verge of losing my right breast. My life has changed and I am not done yet. I have major surgery coming up in days. How do you cope with Cancer?

My wife Denise and I love to go to the farm for our "goat therapy" (that is what my wife calls hanging out with the goats and sheep, petting them and being with them).
The animals have such great effect on our mood, and breathing fresh air helps too!

I am a widow for 14 years. To those who say they have been widowed 2 months, or 1 year, or 4 years I would say, if you think it is getting better then I do not understand. I don't mind checking the widow box on applications or information boxes; most people don't pay attention anyway,they just assume if you are alone you are divorced. I hate that part. I want to scream ..
