The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

Okay ladies - for those of you who asked, here's Snickers!! She's mostly Maine Coon so she's pretty well-built!

Thanks so much to SpecialK for such a delicious lunch this afternoon! It was great seeing you all again and I hope we can get together soon again.

Mexico - lots of prayers for a speedy recovery from your surgery on Monday. I know you will be just fine.

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas to you all, my special sisters,

SpecialK, thank you for opening you home to us and thank you to all Tampa BCO Sisters for allowing a “foreigner” from Jacksonville crash your luncheon. Special K your home is beautiful and you have such a gift of hosting a party. The food was fabulous!

It was wonderful to meet each one of you in person and put names and faces together. MexicoHeather, thinking of you today.

Thank you to my new best friend, Snickersmom! Thank you for the intercept! It made the one day trip doable. Loved getting to know you!

Yes, that get-together was great. SpecialK - you sure do know how to entertain us!

Bella - I'm so glad you came down! It was great getting to know you on the ride back and forth to Tampa and it sure didn't feel like a long trip at all. Any time you want to come down - just say the word. I'd love to get together with you again.

Hope everyone has a blessed Christmas!

Hi! Haven’t been on this site for many months, but am now looking at my favorite topics. Lunch out is always a favorite! Ha! Anyway, I am in Deland and would like to meet up one day.

Also, a question not related to lunch, but maybe one of you know...I was getting Arimidex from the manufacturer direct. They have raised prices but my Medicare RX can get a generic for a WHOLE lot less than non generic...the real stuff. So, is there a difference? I have had no problems in 4 years and am a little afraid to go generic. I think there are different manufacturers of the generic too. How do you know which one to get....if I do that?

Thanks....to anyone who might know!

kira - sorry to hear that your markers have risen, I know it is worrisome. I have had two instances of above normal markers - right after chemo mine was double the high end of the range and took about 3-4 months to come down into the normal range. In 2016 I also had a reading in the 40's over a couple of tests. Turned out I had a large (3cm) suture granuloma right where my tumor had been, along with several different types of dysphasia/inflammatory process and that drove my numbers higher. Removing all of that surgically solved the problem and my markers returned to normal. That said, I tend to stay fairly close to the top end of the range. Let me know when you come up to Tampa to see Dr W.

mysunshine - we are overdue for a lunch! As far as generic vs name brand there is no specific manufacturer that promised less/no side effects, but it is generally thought that the fewer fillers and additives the better. Some have had good success with Teva. Often you have to experiment with different manufacturers and just find the one that works for you. There are a couple of Arimidex threads and much discussion of brands. You also have the option of switching to another drug - Femara (letrozole) or Aromasin (exemestane) in the search for the right fit

Thank you! I think I will just stay with Arimidex from the manufacturer. No fillers and extra ingredients. Don’t mess with what works!

Yes, there is another thread about people in the Orlando area. Wondering if the two can be combined. They may not know about this thread. ???

Anyway, maybe a lunch in or around Orlando one day.
