well I am not sure if I posted this already, chemo brain,
good news, my ct scan was clear, doc did say that most people with stage 4 b grade 3 endometrial cancer, it will recur , and positive news she said "remember i said most people not ALL people, so we are working on the no recurance for me"
so she is positive so I am positive,. it is going to be a long wait for first check up,
got a scope of throat and stimoach and the other end! and the doc found internal hemaroids ( been telling them I have had them for 3 months!) he found 2 polops in my stomach, took them out and said he would get back to me with results, seeing if they are cancerous or not. so holding my breath at the moment;

I am so glad you finally found a group to keep you warm and hopeful.

Enjoy the holiday. Will remember you tomorrow and the day after and the day after that. You never go very far out of my thoughts.

Love you,

Claudia

A quick question, did you happen to ask her how her research on ginger was going. If she had had positiv results with people yet or if there is a trial scheduled. First thing tomorrow morning I'm going back on my daily ounce of fresh ginger. I feel better when I have that little slice of ginger in my diet.

not anythong real big, other than horse pills! carafate, or the generic version of them and the other ones I have been taking , magnesium (this is the second time I have had to take these) prilosec (generic version of) and zyrtec even though I have had claritin also my G P says oh well why dont you try different ones see which ones work,. yea I have $20 per box of pills to "try different ones" after I said I could not afford that luxury of trial and error, she said well go to the dollar store and try those. yea a dollar store pill will work over claritin and zyrtec! still sniviling and watery eyes, praying she lets me get an alergy test soon. I have only been asking since august. her decision or (whim) as to when I can go or if I can go, the lovely HMO has given her full rule over what I can or can not get. this is not good. any how got another visit with my G P on the 1st, I asked for the appointment 2 weeks before ! glad I am not really sick and needed a doc right away.
cant wait to get back down to Dr Liu in U of M/.
