I faxed her CT scans over ... and they said after the doctor reviews them they'll let me know how soon we can see someone.
Thanks albrite ... I'll definetly look into this and let you know how it went ... I've tried For several months to have my wife join this forum with no luck .... Unfortunately she has a horrible apetite and sleeps all day ... Any attempts to wake her up or try and keep her involved wth something has resulted in a argument .... Any ideas ?
I appreciate your kindness. Imagine my 75 year old mom trying to decide which chemo session to attend and who needs her more. I already cut her loose to tend to her baby girl, I'm the oldest and used to fending for myself.
Thank you for everything! The comment on my journal was much appreciated.I got so caught up in my grief.My son's party is about him,the blessing I still have in my life,not my losses.I feel some guilt,nothing new! But,I tried many herbs,antioxidant containing foods,and Red roobius teas,green teas,lots of things.Spent countless hours finding the best meds for my Mom.I owe The American Cancer Society so much and The Ovarian Cancer Coalition.If you believe in herbs for healing I have suggestions if you want them.God Bless and may God keep you in his care,Jen
Could you please complete your Profile with your OVCA history? I just read a post written by you and cannot recall your situation at all.
Thanks for your comment on my journal. There are some nights I just can't sleep and things pour out of me. I have tried to contact Dr. Goodman but have never been able to figure out when it the best time to post as she only takes a couple of questions a day. Hope you are doing well and take care :)
Hi, so far still on weekly Taxol, losing hair. Had to skip this week, bad cold. Will see next week if CA is going down again. Dr said if they start to go up, will change chemo. But the side effects so far is just the hair and numb in the feet.
Are you going to be on the conference call Feb 26th, very important.......?
I can't say enough how much I admire anyone able to work while on chemo. That is amazing to me. Love, Marie
Your journal comment was very helpful to me. Glad to hear your "normal" is tolerable.
I don't blame you for wanting a PET scan to check for anything a CT might have missed. I tried to get my onc to order a PET, but she insists CTs are good enough for me. Glad to hear from you. Marie
Hi, Happy New Year, gas was from a partial blockage, took care of itself eventually. Real roller coaster. Hope you are enjoying the Holiday!
Thank you for your response to my post. I feel so awful about posting in the cancer forum and upsetting Jan, that I promise not to post there anymore. I didn't mean to seem insensitive and I apologize if I seemed that way to any of you ladies who are fighting this dreadful disease. I will certainly still keep you all in my prayers though.
Hi, No Taxol, on Avastin and Cytoxan. Doxil after two had to come off from side effects. So far ok, but gives me high blood pressure, have to take meds for. Did they say how long to stay on Taxol, would they be changing to anything else?
Thank you for responding on my regarding Taxol, will know next week if I will be going on to it. The problem is already thin hair from Topotecan, and just starting to fill in. Feels like a merry go round,
stay in touch, hope all is well with you!!!
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for your input. How are you doing now?
