How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?
Hi Karen, congratulation on beating the statistics my prayers are with you for good results on your CT scan, you sound as if you are doing very well with plenty of energy, it is great to hear and gives me so much hope, I am doing ok had chemo yesterday, lots of energy today which I hope lasts for nine days at least as my husband and I with some friends will be on our way to Burmuda tomorrow then &...
I didn't go through with the nanoknife, I took a break from folfirinox last summer, January there was a slight increase in the mets in the liver so I am back on folfirinox with the hope it will work again. Sorry but I can't help you I had no comunication with Dr. Martin and I have no idea if OHIP would help in any way, I wish I could be more helpfull, but I truly hope that it works out for your husband and I wou...
Hi Karen, I just had to message you because so many symptoms from the folfirinox that you had I also had, the day of chemo is a right off for me - the walking and talking, sensitivity to coldness the neuropathy in my hands and feet have stayed with me since beginning treatment, even when I had a six month break. I was diagnosed September 2011 so it has been 18 months not bad considering I was given six months, I woul...
I have had the same symptoms of slurred speach during chemo if I remember right it happened during the first few treatment after that it got less, hope your Dad is tolerating the folfirinox with out to many side effects.
Take care good luck and blessings, Sheann
Hope every thing goes well for Annie tomorrow, it sounds much less complicated than an ERCP.
My thoughts and blessings are with you both Sheann
So happy to hear the good news about Annie, I have been waiting for your update, what an inspiration she is, congratulations and many blessings on 22 months, I pray that she will continue to do well, I am 17 months but back on chemo and hoping it works again.
You and Annie will be in my prayers, I pray every thing goes well for her on Monday which I'm sure it will, when I had the procedure done three weeks ago the ultrasound took longer, the stent was completed in about twenty minutes, I was fine after it except for fatigue and minimal soreness.
Annie has done fantastic and still is, her energy level is incredible.
I didn't have radiation just 10 day...
I agree with you Cathy, I really don't understand why a plastic stent was inserted, I laugh when I say maybe they thought the stent would out live me ha.
Annie has been such an inspiration to me and every one else, I will update you on my situation - dx sep.2011 plastic stent inserted due to blockage which lasted untill three weeks ago, low fever jauntice and infection after testing proved it was time for a new stent, ERCP procedure, all went well a little soreness and fatigue, 10 days of antibiotics cleared up infection, chemo was stopped at this time but since ...
Good luck on Friday hope and pray your mother gets good results - Blessings
