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.

MexicoHeather - Hope your massage is amazing and your visit with your son is as well.

Just thought I'd update this group on what's been going on with me. Had my pet scan on 8/12, and got the results on 8/16. The SBRT in May worked on the lime sized liver tumor and lymph nodes, but unfortunately, the Xeloda failed me and there was new growth - small spot in liver & a different lymph node area. I did another 5 rounds of SBRT to attack those spots, and just started Gemzar today. The last month has been insane as an AC water leak also caused me to have to redo the entire floor of my condo right when all of my colleges were starting. Fun times, Fun times, lol! Hope all is well with everyone!

Update part 2 -- Having just finished radiation, I expected that my tumor markers would flare in my latest labs. Instead, they came down from 24.3 to 20.7. They've typically been very reliable though they've been in the normal range with small amounts of cancer, but its the lowest its been since April 2015 when I hit my lowest during NED of 19.9. That is incredibly encouraging to me! Gemzar so far has had some mild nausea and fatigue along with headaches (but I get those pretty regularly anyway). But so far.....its been manageable, and I've worked everyday, etc. Very thankful!

Greetings, Tampa Bay! I'm baaaack. Happy HalloweenSillyHeart

Hope to see you all soon!

Unfortunately, I and my PCP feel a small lump in the outer side bra area of the same breast which had ILC. So will be having another breast ultrasound. The small part I feel is like the end of a pencil eraser. The area PCP felt is 5-6cm of more than lump. Yikes! Prayerful it's merely scar tissue from all the breast surgeries and drains.

For getting together -- the first 4 dates would work for me as long as I'm not quarantined for counts. Dec 7 & 21st would be more challenging due to some other commitments, but I would love to get together with everyone. Hope we can make it happen!

SpecialK - glad you are doing well down there. All is well here in The Villages. A fellow survivor and I started a survivor group here and there are 9 of us (so far who meet once a month for coffee, chit chat, support, or whatever anyone needs. So I think I probably will not be trekking down to Tampa anymore. I appreciate all of the group being so very welcoming and supportive. You are all a great group of wonderful caring women and I wish everyone the very best.

If anyone is ever up this way, please send me a PM!

Dec 7th could work out, or perhaps the 21st? My relatives from Austria are here until 12/1.

I was at Moffitt yesterday. I'm going to have a CAT scan at the end of the month. I don't think anything is really wrong, just checking on some symptoms. I think I just had a mild case of shingles and my lymph nodes are upset about it.

Big appointment tomorrow with Dr Rutherford of TGH's Cancer Center. The VA is sending me there. Questionable complex cyst in cervix. Fibroid has mass affect on Endometrial Strip. Two separate cysts on Left Ovary have become one that is septated. Size of the two cysts combined is over 8cm. Also cyst on right ovary.

Have a bad feeling about this one since the VA has basically ignored it and merely watched it since June 2016.

Please feel free to go along in my pocket!

Galsal-Prayers and good vibes for a negative for the report! I am having surgery tomorrow morning at St Joseph’s North. My PS doesn’t like how my left skin flap is looking. So he is going to repair and re-suture. Never been to that hospital before but I trust the surgeon so I should be in good hands.

Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the cooler weather we are supposed to get next week 😊

San1975 - My sister had her surgeries at St Joe's North. It is a nice location, and she was very happy with the care received. Hope your experience is the same!

Galsal - Please let us know how it goes. Thinking of you!
