I am hoping someone can offer me some advice etc ....
I had a scan on Saturday and this afternoon have received a phone call from ONC to say that need me to go back to the hospital to have another scan as they have found something on my Spine, half way down and they don't want to wait until my ONC appointment next week before starting to treat it. They mentioned steroids .... can anyone shed any light on this from experience ? I have no pain.
Thank you for listening, I am feeling very frightened this afternoon and a bit shocked.
Yes, warm thoughts for those we have lost in 2017, and hopefully a fresh start for everyone in the new 2018. Best wishes to all!!
Hello ladies ..happy new year but I thought it would be nice to light a candle to all the brave ladies we have lost this year .
Bitter cold here. Down in the teens and 4 inches of white fluff. 1:00 in the afternoon and I'm still in my PJ's with a cup of hot chocolate!
Well done, ff! So pleased to hear you are on the mend. But you are also wise to just take care for now. It's still eraly days. The magic 6 weeks have not passed yet!
OH Carolyn, If I could get new carpet or hard wood floors I would venture out!! Not in my budget, though! Sigh!
Welcome Buddy Fan! Hope you arrive soon. FF
Glad your back treatment seems to have been successful. Your new year sounds busy - hope your results and news are good. Not to long now till you become a grandmom. Lucky baby to have a granny like you.
Violent thunderstorm raging overhead!
Don't worry no intentions of over doing it. I either go to work or Dr visits. Then I lounge around in my PJ's with a big over sized hooded sweat shirt over them and an electric throw. Every now and then I pick up some things and dust. I'm not allowed to bend, twist, stretch or lift and I'm not! Hubby won't let me either. I hope I don't ever break another vertbae. I didn't hit any sales either. No gitty-up and go left in this girl.
Hi ladies, hope everyone is keeping well and enjoying christmas.
Carolyn, I have also been quite good avoiding the Christmas sales, I usually empty Boots half price gift sets and put them away for next christmas but can't be bothered yet, although I did hit the trafford centre today and bought some new levi's and Ted Baker top........nothing as extravagant as a sofa though!!!! 😀
FF, glad to hear you are doing well, take care though and don't be over doing things!
Hugs Janette xxxx
Doing well here. Back is doing fantastic. Got brave and set up some appointments. First was today. Podiatrist for ingrown nail. Not infected but sore. Figured I would get in there, since I'm diabetic. Next is CT then oncologist. Discussing if treatment is failing and getting on bone strengther. Going to ask for bone scan and bone density. Then the cardiologist to see what's up. EKG said I've had a heart attack at some point. You can get false results, but not taking a chance. Need to see a dentist too. This should all fill up my schedule until grandbaby arrives. Hopefully I will be all patched up. FF

Great news FF. Glad the surgery is over with and here's hoping for a quick recovery. You will be exhausted I'm sure, especially with such a major procedure being done but it IS done which is the best news. I'm sure hubby will be making sure you stick to the rules so don't even think of lifting a finger.
Well done your lungs! Glad you are home. Take care and let those around you give you a wonderful Christmas.
love Bon x
I'm home girls. My lungs did good, so I didn't have to stay. I don't have the major pain but back is tender, also stiff. Lot's of do's and don't's! Can't lift anything over one pound.,no reaching, twistting or bending, no falling. Surgeon was 3 hours late on his arrival to the hospital. Made for a long day. I'm beat! Good night!
Lots of love and prayers, ff. We're all thinking of you and holding hands! It'll all be fine now.
