Hi to everyone. I'm still here just a bit quiet lately. There are so many new names on the site I feel like a stranger now. I have been working a bit through an agency. It was so good to be well enought to do that even if it did knock the stuffing out of me. I have had a lot of fluid retention from Taxotere. The oncologist says it will be permanent. Not a nice message to get. I put on 5 kg in a week & feel sick all the time. I am on pills to drain that & it has only partially worked. That led to low potassium levels so I now have pills for that too. And so on & so on.So far my tumour marker levels have stayed stable so I am in partial remission.
