    "BTDT" = Been There; Done That

    Here, this might come in handy during dry spells: Acronyms

    If you copy and paste those funny letters into Google Translate
    It will let you read it, and translate what you type back into it.

    Посмотрите, как легко это?


    Enjoy good health !

    Gail -
    That Google translator gives you a choice to select a language,
    or have it auto-detect the language you're inputting. Select the
    "auto-detect" and away you go! (It doesn't seem to decipher
    West Virginian, though)

    And the "igpay atinlay" translator is *here*, fwiw.

    (I just scrolled up and holy momma, look what I started)

    Try to stay sane (and healthy),

    Mean something else?
    Like Butt Torn Dried Turds? Those are the only two I can easily come up with and this one has so few uses, I can't see how it would catch on.

    I tried to get one to take hold. I got tired of lol, etc, so I came up with pmp = peed my pants. I tried for ever to get people to start using it.

    Pete,
    Thank you for this post. It "poked" me to remind **** to start taking Milk Thistle again. Dr. Lenz recommended it for him and he had gotten sick of taking so many things so he stopped for awhile. Well today, he is back on it. Thanks.

    Aloha,

    some good comes out of a clumsy post
    kathleen,

    sorry but what chemos **** on ?
    is milk thistle each day,
    what dose was recommended ?
    i had chemo days offmilk thistle
    just curious. its great your onc recommends it, most say no.
    ask about samE. i think it maybe better than milk thistle, maybe complimentary.
    no idea, but would love to get a good answer.

    he must be a great onc.

    its good for both of you,

    hugs,
    pete

    ps

    if you see scoutys liver post with sugar igr discussion, i think milk thistle helps with insulin levels see below. many benefits.

    Can Milk Thistle Help People With Diabetes?
    Medical research does suggest that milk thistle, combined with traditional treatment, can improve diabetes. Studies have shown a decrease in blood sugar levels and an improvement in cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes.

    Researchers also have found that milk thistle improved insulin resistance, a key characteristic of type 2 diabetes.

    Diabetes is a serious condition. Talk to your doctor before taking any supplements as they may interfere with your medication.

    Fair Warning?
    Hmmm, I understand that the warning was an afterthought. Might have been a good idea to put it there before the $hit hit the fan.

    Too much ibuprofen can cause liver damage for crying out loud, I'm really not that worried about the chemo. I wanted aggressive treatment and I'm happy as hell that I've gotten it. I was aware of what I was getting into from the get-go. I was also aware that doing nothing or other treatments was not for me.

    As far as your post goes, I read some of it but I didn't care to finish it. I saw no benefit for me in it. I'm comfortable with my choices. I am not sure how helpful it was to others either. I am having a hard time making sense of this post I am responding to, lots of typos...
    I don't even know how to respond to ""why is this a hot topic ?" because you stage 4 are not informed" I'm not sure I know what you're trying to say to me.

    I kind of equate your post with when I see someone post that the are "finally NED!!!"
    Do you have any idea how many times in the past few years I've read that only to read 3 months later that "it's back..I'm so bummed". I could post that they shouldn't celebrate too soon but I congratulate them or I say nothing. The same goes for the 12 round/cycle/dose of chemo stuff. "Only 3 more until I'm done with chemo!!!" I heard that myself once... 243 chemo's ago. I don't tell them "well don't bank on it". So I feel that warning people of potential risks and making something out to be the boogey-man are different issues.

    You ask "why is this a hot topic?". You're joking, right? There are hundreds of ways to beat cancer or die trying. People don't agree on treatments just like they debate God's existence of if Glen Beck is moron...
    ('not sure' and 'positively' respectively)

    Sorry for this omission...
    I should have added that MANY people have been declared NED and stay that way. Also, many people do the 12 rounds of chemo and they are done with it. I didn't mean to mislead anyone by my comments. Unfortunately, the way I chose to show a post that offered little in the way of truly helpful information (IMO) was to do something I am not in favor of doing.

    I doubt that anyone who has been a member of this site for a number of years can deny that what I stated was false, it just doesn't benefit people who are currently looking to hear those "Three Little Words".

    I do hope that we all can reach NED and that it sticks. Cancer is a crummy disease that is not easy to beat but it is beatable. Also, one can be undergoing chemo/treatment, or other types of treatment, and be living with cancer for the long-term and have a happy, productive, and relatively "normal" life. There is no right or wrong way to approach your treatment. It's all about getting information and making your choice, having the best medical team (if you decide to go that route), support from family and friends, a sense of humor or a good attitude, and a little good luck thrown in.

    I apologize if my post offended anyone, it certainly was not my intention at all.
