Tamoxiphen Scurge

Type: 
Article
Description: 

The scurg of gaining weight, while on the chemo drug Tamoxifen, is happening with more patients lately. It is mainly just a maintence drug the doctors put you on when there is nothing else they can do about your cancer. I have ovarian cancer but am stable now but I am on Tamoxiphen. My doctor told me that the main side effect is gaining weight. He sure was right. I gained 70 lbs in 6 mos.. That is all the doctor seemed to be concerned about. They are good doctors but never mentioned weight control. Being in this state I let the weight come on because I was ready to die. Cancer means death but as the weight came on I became one of the walking dead and I am only 54 years old. I asked myself what would Jesus do in this situation? Would he just sit around and let it happen. No! I got my mind organized, realized I was helping death come with my weight and did something about it. I am in my 2nd week with Weight Watches. I have lost 7 lbs. and 2 Inches around my belly. I have more energy and I just enjoy the company of the meetings. So Please consider joining. It is worth the money.

The Human Side of Fear

Type: 
Article
Description: 

The article details why most people fear procedures, i.e. colonoscopy, endoscopy and other invasive diagnostic tests. As the author, I believe that fear is a significant barrier that can influence outsomes. If a patient is fearful and and has a "bad" experience with the procedure, then the patient will not likely return any time soon for following-up testing. I outline the signs and symptoms of fear so that medical professionals can identify those people who are at risk, and intervene to prevent a "bad" outcome for the patient.

In the Final Analysis: More Wisdom From People Who Have Faced Death

Type: 
Article
Description: 

Seventeen adults who experienced a life-threatening situation were interviewed to ascertain what they had learned about life from their confrontation with death. Interview questions focused on participants' philosophies of life, their personal regrets, and priorities, and their advice to others. Interviews were analyzed using qualitative grounded theory and discovery-oriented techniques. Among the most common themes, the participants advocated less materialism, more spirituality, and more caring for and serving of others. After their confrontation with death they worried less about mundane issues and became more optimistic about the future of humankind. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
