hi all...I had my second taxol treatment yesterday....since my doctor spends alot of time in research I asked him what exactly the taxol does that causes the pains? he replied...no one really knows...HA! that's comforting...then he said...the odd thing is men don't usually have bad pain with taxol only the women do...well- just another example of gender discrimination if you ask me! why are we so lucky?
yesterday I spent the day with an older gal getting her last taxol treatment. she's had
ovarian cancer twice, and since we have the same surgeon[that we both love] she was telling me about her surgeries[ both in the same place] and the possibilty of another in the future...when I said "why don't you ask dr. Delgado to put in a zipper?"
She laughed and laughed and thought it was a good idea. She had a great survivors attitude and it lifted me up too, and helped the day go by quicker.....lindy
