Hi; my name is Tina and I received chemo for 9 consecutive months and now have been in remission for the past 19 months. My problem is that I have put on 60 pounds in the last 12 months. I stand 5'1" and small frame, I am hurting all the time and out of breath whenever I bend over or climbs stairs. I know you are not doctors, I just want to see if anyone is going thru the same ordeal I am going thru. I was given steriods due to arthritis in October of 2008. Bless you all
Hi all I am in remission from Anal cancer. I finished radiation in early December and the Docs say they think its gone. The chemo was really bad the first round the second round wasn't as bad. I'm still wiped out a lot but, the pain is much better. I'm told anal cancer is rare. Anyone else out there who had it?
IM A 44 YR OLD WOMAN WITH INTESTINAL CANCER STAGE 3. I HAVE OPTED FOR NO SURGERY. I HAVE A FAMILY AND HUSBAND. 2 DAUGHTERS AND 2 SONS. 4 GRANDDAUGHTERS ALL UNDER AGE 5 YRS. I HAVE RECENTLY HAD TO GIVE UP MY JOB AT A LOCAL DELI AND NOW ENDURE THE PAIN THAT COMES WITH THIS TERRITORY. I REFUSE TO LIVE THE REST OF MY LIFE IN BED WITH THINGS ATTATCHED TO MY BODY. AT LEAST THIS WAY I CAN VISIT MY FAMILY AND STILL KEEP MY SELF DIGNITY. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED GOD AND HAVE WALKED IN JESUS FOOTSTEPS AND KNOW THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE ME STRENGTH TO HELP MY FAMILY WITH MY DIFFICULTIES.
That was my 1st lame attempt to hide the scars...since then I have given up on turtle necks & could care less if people stare.
