Dune, poor Dusty, I sure hope he was better today. Did you get to a dermatologist to find out about that spot?

wleeky1952, welcome but so sorry you have reason to be here. Prayers for a successful treatment plan. You will find a great group of women here with a wealth of knowledge and understanding.

Marilyn, yay to no progression! The radiation does help alot should you consider to do it.

Well I started back on the Celebrex today after being off of it for a few days and yup my troubles are returning. I took the double dose of stomach meds but I'm sure it will take a few days to see if that will help. I'm giving this a week and if I don't feel better I think I'll have to go off of it. Makes me sad really because it was really starting to work for my pain.

Hugs to all, Annie

AmyQ, I just got to thinking, wasn't it scan day for you today? If so prayers and positive thoughts for good results!

Terre, how's your stomach feeling today? Will you have results by the end of the week?

Linda, are you having gorgeous weather in Quebec too like we are here? Omg it has been an amazing week of warm sunny weather, can't get enough of this! Heading to St. Jacobs market early in the morning so I need to get to bed. Can't wait to see all the neat stuff.

Good morning all

congrats on no progression Marilyn

Amy best wishes for your results

Wleeky wishing you an easful tx

Annie sorry you are having so many issue with the celebrex and your stomach

Dune hope you are feeling better and Dusty too. Those are sweet pictures

Cjanet how are you today?

LindaE i think I missed what ultimately was the result of your scans? how is the cough?

I know I am missing things and I am sorry. I am under a very dark cloud today. I have the MRI tomorrow, so answers will be had, but what was the occasional jolt of nerve pain in my left hip became a full on spasm and almost unable to walk from yesterday afternoon. I am in no pain sitting or sleeping. Just if I 'step a little off' then the whole things flares. I am so scared and angry about this..... I feel like a baby and I am praying this pain is just the meds shrinking stuff..... but would it create such nerve pain and hurt to put weight on it at times? I welcome any input or insight....

Feeling sad.

Wishing you the best. My now chronic hip pain started with a very similar story to yours. I had a weekend in which I could not bare weight. on the left side. My MO quickly ordered an MRI resulting dx bursitis. I wish for you the same!

Off to take my son to school. Wishing everyone a beautiful Thursday.

Good morning all,

Gaia - Crappy pain! I can understand the dark cloud. But the good thing is you will have answers after your MRI. I have no insight other than when I was on Tamox, I had a lot of pain in my hips and knees. When are you seeing your Onc? Tell him/her all your symptoms. In the meantime, be kind to yourself, take pain meds, rest and remember, we are here with you. I will get my results on 5 Oct. My cough is practically gone, thank you for asking.
