Dec 6, 2018 · Ovarian cancer: A week after chemo in Gynecologic Cancers

I take my chemo in pill form. I’m actually on day 4 of a treatment today.
The first few days is nothing, just tired then the next 7 days literally suck.
All including what you mentioned. Sickly feeling, constipated, then finally the couple days of living on the toilet. I’m trying this time to take some miralax every day during to see if it helps.
I too would like some advice.
I’m on my 6 th treatment, and hopefully my last!

Apr 17, 2018 · Pituitary cancer - spread to bones and liver in Cancer

Thanks everyone I’m very up to speed on pituitary tumors. I’ve had to deal with them quite a lot over the last 10 years. I’ve had 4 surgeries to date to remove them.
So yes these type tumors usually are benign. I was once told by Mayo doctors since 99% are benign they usually don’t even bother testing them for anything other than hormone stains.

I connected on this site because I was looking for anyone that had this same experience As I mentioned this cancer it is extremely rare. Unfortunately there isn’t much data to go off of so most Doctors are treating it like a brain cancer. Difference being the tumors we found recently are not on my brain, but secondary to my bones.
I love the Drs at mayo but it’s not really convenient due to the distance. I live in Missouri.

Apr 16, 2018 · Pituitary cancer - spread to bones and liver in Cancer

I live in St. Louis Missouri area.
Actually the doctors here wrote me off and couldn’t figure out what was producing so much ACTH so I went to Mayo in Rochester. Saw Dr Young and he immediately said I have a tumor somewhere else. They did a pet scan and found multiple tumors on mostly my hip and spine. Biopsy showed them as being pituitary corticotropin secreting carcinoma metastatic to bone.
Ive had radiation but not chemo yet. Had to take care of some other issues (surgeries) first.

Apr 16, 2018 · Pituitary cancer - spread to bones and liver in Cancer

I was diagnosed with Pituitary cancer last year. Spread to my bones and my liver.
Anyone else here have this rare cancer?
I’m having a hard time finding doctors who know much about it. Other than at Mayo.
