    I'd like to think of chemo as a lot more t h an buying time. My former oncologist said to Mr and I wanted to punch him out. I certainly didn't need to hear that from him of all people. No its not a cure. It it brings hope which is more than we have without it.

    Well, I'm not super woman.  I don't go into the office every day, mostly work from home.  But that itself is an 8 hour commitment every day and it also brings along the same stress and pressure as being in the office.  This time it's much harder because my disease is further along.

      Carien, how awful.  To lose your father to this dreaded disease, only to get it yourself.  I can only imagine how you feel.  Damn pancreatic cancer. Keep fighting!

        Murf, can you share where you found the doctor?  I'm going to get another opinion soon, and as we all know, there is no time to waste. So good to hear of your wife's good progress.

          Gosh, all I want to do is sleep, and I know that isn't good.  Appetite isn't the problem, problem is that it's hard for me to stay awake long enough to cook something!  Will this get any better?  Do I need to fight the sleep and force myself to stay awake and more active?  I'm working during the day, taking a nap around lunchtime, then as soon as 5:00 rolls around, I'm ready to hit the couch. ...

            What an ass you are.  Go look in the mirror at yourself, you selfish jerk.

              Karen, I agree with Bryan.  Keep fighting.  You're a survivor and you'll get through this.  We're all fighting this together.  Stay strong!

                It's so refreshing for me to see stories like yours.  I'm so happy for you.  You are a lucky man, Tom!  Keep fighting.  I'm right there with you.  Gosh I hope I can take 10 treatments.  I just finished #1.  Do you go every two weeks, or every week with a break week in between?  This time I'm set up for every other week, one on, one off.  I pray can follow the downward...

                  Tom, just catching up on your posts.  Your marker dropped in half!  That is incredibly good news and good for you.  I hope you continue that progress.  I'm just getting started again and also on Fulfirinox.

                    Karen, I was wondering why I woke up with cotton mouth for the last two days.  What causes the dehydration?  I've had trouble with the low white cell count before, and had shots of Neulasta?  Or something....I feel a bit better today than I did yesterday.  At least I've stayed awake since 12:30 p.m., much better than yesterday. Food tastes like crap.  Tastes like metal or something.  L...

                      Harts Hi. I remember getting hooked up to just saline 2 times when I was low on fluids. Probably from diarrhea. I always had to have shots of neupogen for low white blood cells from the folfirnox too. Tuff chemo...but always did some cancer kicking.
