    1 day at a time

    Going through treatment
    Added Feb 5, 2020

    Diagnosed in summer of July ’19 at VA MRI in St. Pete Fl. Decided to go private because of my 1 1/2 hour drive to get there from Holmes Beach. Accepted into VA Community Care program because of distance. Hormone treatment ongoing and starting Radiation next week. 3-4 Gleasons and one 4-3. Bone scans and body scans negative for now. Could be a l…

    Breast cancer patient

    Evaluating treatment options
    Added Jan 27, 2020

    I am going through Chemo right now for 4 cycles in FL. I used the Digicap for my forth treatment and everything went fine. I was able to stand the cold knowing that I probably wouldn’t lose my hair. Wrong. I followed all the instructions to a “T” and my hair all fell out on day 15. I had the rest shaved off. I would have kept paying the hi…

    From My Diagnosis To Being A Survivor

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 8, 2020

    My cancer journey starts out most likely the way many cancer victims start. There is nothing comparable to people hearing the terrible phrase “You have cancer”. I was numb for weeks, it seemed so surreal.

    When I was first diagnosed with uterine cancer, I purposed myself to learn about staging and treatment options. Secondly, I sought out o…

    Successfully dealing with 5FU side effects

    Going through treatment
    Updated Nov 22, 2019

    I am now on my 110th cycle of chemo, mostly FOLFIRI (5FU, or fluorouracil, plus irinotecan, with leukovorin as an adjuvant) but some FOLFOX too (5FU plus oxaliplatin). Every two weeks.

    With the help of my team – spouse as caregiver, all those at CINJ – I no longer have mouth sores, do not experience constipation, do not lose 5 lbs or more fro…

    Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

    Just some thoughts
    Added Sep 30, 2019

    Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder common in women. It is also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome. Women with PCOS produce higher amounts of male hormones than usual. It is a common hormonal disorder that causes different symptoms of reproductive age. Women who have PCOS may have infrequent or prolong menstrual period. The ovaries m…

    Srage IV metastatic lung cancer. Spread to bones and liver.

    Going through treatment
    Added Sep 15, 2019

    Tumors on liver have finally responded favorably from chemo. Shrank more than half there size. All other is stable. First positive news in a long time. Actually when I was told I was so surprised I got good news I didn’t even react. I was in disbelief but very happy. I know I can’t be cured but cherish any extra time to be with my family.

  • I'm Darla S., and I'm a survivor of Stage 4 Breast Cancer

    Stage 4 No More

    Just some thoughts
    Updated Aug 20, 2019

    In November 2015 I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Triple Positive, Invasive Ductal Metastatic Breast Cancer. I had a LOT of bone involvement, tumors in my liver and LOTS of lymph nodes. My PET scan looked like a Christmas Tree. I started my treatments with 10 rounds of radiation to a bone in my pelvis and a few vertebrae they were afraid would …

  • Cancer - The Secret Change

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    It is what it is. Might as well find some humor in your journey.

    Living with cancer
    Updated Oct 26, 2013

    I was diagnosed last February (2013) with stage IV lung cancer. A shock to me, needless to say, as a non-smoker. Unless of course you count those funny things I smoked back in college 40 years ago.

    Besides the support of family and friends, I have found keeping my sense of humor throughout my journey has been the best medicine, other than the…

    A Summary of My Chemo Experience

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 7, 2010

    This is a summary of the chemo treatment I survived. I have never experienced anything like this. Radiation, and even surgery, was a breeze in comparison:

    6 treatments, one every 21 days:

    - for each treatment, Brad and I were there 2.5 to 4 hours (always had the bloodwork and meeting with the doctor a day or 2 before treatment)

    - #2 …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.
