Jul 31, 2017 · Living with colorectal cancer - Meet others & come say hi in Colorectal Cancer

@mouselife,
i understand your feelings above of not wanting to do anything, i cannot seem to get going with life any longer, every time i try to do something positive something else comes along, i have no energy and no life so i stay home and watch tv. or go on this computer hoping to become inspired of course do pray alot. i joined a canc group here last year it lasted a couple of months then is no more so i found this online group however do not stay focused here either as i should, i do not think i feel sorry for myself i just have no interests anymore, every time i turn around some new disease has entered my body.

stay focused on what you are doing with the exercise group at the hosp, i used to go to the gym all my life last two times i hurt my shoulder and then my foot so qhit, tried to go to Silver Sneakers few months ago and went once that was it.

all will turn out for you because you are making the effort to go forward and good luck to you and all others that struggle with this and especially the no energy issue. You will get your life back.

@mouselife.

So sorry to hear that you are having pain however believe that it will subside as you heal. I have not gone that far in my search for the rectal canc. that is in my body, they wanted me to get the bag and i said no, and was also told by two dr’s i would not be able to survive that so i am trying to get in Mayo Climic.

i had radiation treatment two yrs. ago on the rect tumor two yrs. ago and received a third degree burn, which finally healed and left a scar inside. I guess our body can take a lot and hopefully will bring us through, i know that prayer is so essential in all of this and anything else we come across. i will pray for you and know that it will be heard.

May you find peace and healing in your body and mind.

Colleen,
i have gone nowhere with the colon canc. and become very frustrated especially when the brst canc. dr. asks  "what are you doing for your rectal tumor"  i tell him i  am doing the best i can trying to get into Mary Clinic as i cannot have the bag.  My nurse practitioner is doing the best she can do trying to get me in there.  the orig. request was sent at the first of this yr. by my Dr. who has since left, there is something going on with my ins. and the Dr's office about some kind of form, so the woman that does the forms is going to try again.  So therefore have not had anything constructive to add to the group other then i pray all will survive their ordeal.
regards,  Starrlight

Apr 19, 2017 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

I took Anastrozole for one year as my oncologist told me it would shrink the tumor in left breast, one year later nothing happened, i did gain weight and still losing hair on top. Did not experience any side effects other than the two mentioned. Found out via research that Anastrozole is suppose to keep cancer from spreading!!!!! About one month ago she started me on Ibrance/Chemo pill which i do not know results as to shrinking tumor as too early to know, it does lower white blood cells however. Still losing hair, i wear hair pieces and have a wig which have not worn yet. Hopefully something in this reply will help. As far as weight gain just this week went to a Dietician who has given me a list of food to eat that can help with diabetes and cancer, i do not eat meat so the list will help me and being able to still walk get some exercise daily walking my companion dog.
