Living With the Death Of Someone Special

My sister and best friend passed away on 6/16/2014 at 6:32pm from an opportunistic infection from Leukemia - AML. Even though I have never had cancer, my sister did and that touched my life in a different way. I live in the state of Nevada and she lived in California. I travelled to see her every weekend after work and spent the weekends sleeping in her room at the hospital where she was being treated.

Caregiver of a cancer patient

I am so worried and new about all this Cancer stuff. I do not know who to trust or believe.

Uterine Carcinosarcoma Survivors ..I would like to from you

I am 66 years old.   In September of 2013 I started bleeding, after not having a period since 1998.  I went to my famiIy doctor and she did a pap test.  The test came back negetive but she wanted a biopsy done by a gynecologist.  The biopsy came back negetive, but the gynecologist wanted to do a D&C because I was still bleeding.

The D&C, done in October, showed uterine carcinosarcoma.  She referred me to a gynecologist oncologist.

A Glimpse of My Daily Struggle

I'm not gonna lie to sugar coat the notion of dealing with cancer and the health issues that come after. Some people say life gets easier after the cancer is in remission. Well, those people must be the lucky ones. I deal with the after effects of my cancer on a daily basis. Some days are easier than others, but everyday I have to choose to fight. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer for the first time about two and a half years ago. At first, I was worried, not for myself, but for those around me.

Countdown to Third Infusion

My third chemo infusion comes later this week. So far, so good.

Am very happy to report that my heartburn has resolved, thanks to prescription Prilosec. I no longer need to sleep propped up. Given chemo's effect on the digestive tract, the Prilosec also works to prevent the ulcers that chemo can cause.

Other relatively new side effects include:
