Hello, Carrie, My name is Lucy and I'm having my first surgery this month on the 20th. What I want to know is what hormones are the tumors excruciating? I had a total hysterectomy in 1988 but I took estrogens for abt 20 yrs afterwards with NO complications. But I just read about taking meds contaminated with NDMS? that causes cancer like zantac, ect and bacon and cheeses. And I take and eat 4 of 6. Anyway. I read that NETS usually has a 5 year lifespan?? I'm 69. I DONT really want to live to my 80's. Sorry if that was offensive. I'll add you to my prayer list. You add me to yours. Hugs. Lucy. From Texas !! Having my Sx in San Antonio @ Methodist Hosp.

Hi Lucy! I’m sorry I just saw your message now. Yes I’ll add you to my prayer list too! How did your surgery go? You would be on post-op day 5 now I guess. I sure hope you’re in not too much pain. I just found out that my chemo is not working so I meet with my Oncologist on Friday (28th Oct) morning. I’m sufficiently terrified because it’s now begin to cause pain. In answer to your question regarding the hormones, I really don’t know. All I know is that I’m heeding the warnings I’ve read about to stay away from processed foods. However my doctor and team have told me to enjoy whatever I can enjoy. I am terminal and likely don’t have too much longer. I hate to leave my husband and teenage boys behind. It breaks my heart daily. I guess I’ll find out Friday if there’s anything else they can do for me. Surgery on my liver is out. I don’t qualify for a transplant so not sure if they have a small miracle for me or not. - Carrie
