My T and A Man

I told my surgeon, "I'm actually more worried about the colonoscopy than I had been about the lumpectomy."

My surgeon is a general surgeon, but his particular skills include both breast surgery and colonoscopy. That makes him literally my T and A man.

Feeling better! :)

Now that I am done with the first round of chemo (once a week, three weeks), the first round of radiation (5 times a week, 3 weeks) and started the second round of chemo (once a week, three weeks), had two bone strengthener infusions (one more to go), I feel a lot better. :)

I am taking 800mg of Votrient for sarcomatoid RCC and have developed a terrible rash. Has anyone had this reaction and what is done for it? I am using Sarna lotion and wonder if there is a Rx to be taken internally? Thank you.

Myxoid liposarcoma (pediatric)

Hello! I'm a mother whose 12 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with myxoid liposarcoma. 

She had a tumor on the right upper thigh. She underwent a biopsy which suggested sarcoma. She recently had surgery to remove her tumor xtra wide excision with 2cm margin. They tested the tumor and its myxoid sarcoma. Which in children it's considered low grade. I was wondering if anyone has gone through this? I know it's rare but I wanted to know if it is common to come back? What are your expriences? thanks!

It begins

After feeling amazing for so long I started to think maybe I didn't have cancer, but I knew better. So I decided to get into the battle again and try a level 1 trial drug to shrink my tumors.  The cancer in my liver and lungs have metastisized from my original cancer.  I was to begin on Tuesday at OSU.
