Aug 23, 2019 · Hormonal issues/ MTHFR / high testosterone in Women's Health

Please keep us updated. I cannot be of any help since I have never heard of this,but I can surely add compassion as it must be agonizing not getting any medical help. One idea: there is a New York Times magazine series about difficult to analyze medical issues. It is written by a doctor from Yale medical school ( a woman) and is now being televised on Netflix. I’ll send the name in another post but in the meantime contact the editor of NYT magazine. I don’t know where you live (I live on west coast) but NYT should be available to you online.I believe you can be helped!

Aug 21, 2019 · Have you ever had hiccups with or after chemotherapy? in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

I have been wondering what happened to this topic. Is anyone doing research? I get them occasionally and seem to connect them to the fact that whatever I have just eaten has not gone through the digestive process because my stomach is off center due to a hernia following hysterectomy. See my comment about not taking Lynparza underoveraiancancer discussions.

Oh dear. You have your hands full. But your health is most important. These small lesions should come out whether they are bio-siblie or not. Do you have a sympathetic doctor? You need someone to hold you together! Thisistoo much worry. See if there is a social worker who can help.Good luck….

Jun 14, 2019 · I have ovarian cancer in Gynecologic Cancers

I feel you are very knowledgeable about all of this and I thank you to take the time to share! I guess I am in remission from ovarian cancer but my last Cat scan showed a spot in my abdomen not connected to an organ so I have just gone through 6 sessions of carbonyl -one delAyed because of low blood numbers, the last questionable for same reason but given nonetheless as I had a blood transfusion the next dAy. Now my dr’s assistant has had me have a magnesium infusion as my blood tests showed that at 2 and I have some pills to take also. Feeling shaky but OK. Getting blood draws every week! meeting with surgeon in Seattle July 1. What she says will calm me. I know I have to work on diabetesnumbers but I am in such a swirl about all of this,that I just try to eat and rest- Thanks.

Jun 11, 2019 · Have you ever had hiccups with or after chemotherapy? in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

Yes, I do now and I’ve been wondering if they are hiccups or burbs. Just finished chemo last week and they have been bothering me,especially when I lie down, which I do often as my back hurts. They started as the chemo got postponed because of low blood counts. I finally had to have a transfusion. I also have a hernia from the earlier ovarian surgery and I can hear my stomach gurgle when I lie down.

Wow,great information, I will tell my daughters about Rad50. I had exactly your situation, no symptoms, a hysterectomy,some small breast cancers (removed) and recently,chemo for a very small bud/metastasis now reduced to a spot. I think I will be on a drug after I revisit my surgeon in Seattle. I am about to be 78. My mother died of colon cancer.

Jun 4, 2019 · Help: What is a cancer symptom or not? Who to see? in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

I feel for you.You have conflicting advice from caregivers whom you trust, and Ofcourse they are speaking to you from their own scientific perspectives. You need a committed friend who an follow all of it with you and keep track. Is there someone who can give you that time? Otherwise, you must be your own best friend.. Whom do you trust the most? Who is responding to you best? Tell that person how you feel and see what they say. You need someone to depend on.

May 29, 2019 · Video Q&A about Gynecologic Cancers in Gynecologic Cancers

I too am in Washington and just finished my second round of chemo today but am weakened in the blood dept. and will get a transfusion tomorrow morning. After my ovarian surgery ,during chemo I hD 5 TRANSFUSIONS. THE tumor is gone (probably a metasticize-sp?) and I will go onwith pills after my body has settled down from all this disruption. I have fallen a couple of times because my legs are rubbery. I have read on this feed that AvastTin is very expensive and I went on this second chemo to avoid taking it. What is now is not that! I will see my surgeon n Seattle in a few weeks. This is a work in prgress. I have very good,communicative doctors and my husband always goes with me and listens hard,with his computer. M y life is coping with new challenges but not a death knell,as I felt when I first got the diagnosis in 2016. Ask questions and seek lots of answers.
