See everyone, This is such an active thread it is tough to keep up.
Marilyn, I am happy you are stable.
Annie, keeping good thoughts for you that scan results will be great.
Gaia, sorry you are having such a difficult time. I hope you get answers and tx plan soon.
Rachel, I agree with everyone else here. It is important for you to go to your onc appt. You need to discuss current condition and symptoms so you can have the correct treatment plan. I know it is easy sometimes to throw up your arms and give up, but I firmly believe that there are still treatment options out there for you that will make you feel better. Maybe you should also talk to a therapist who can help you deal with everything that is happening. I am sure that it feels like things are falling in on top of you. It is scary for everyone.
Deanna- I hope things go well at UCLA. Tooth extractions are never fun.
Cristina, hugs to you. Feel free to vent anytime.
This has not been my best week. I have had an achy hip and achy legs for four days. I am hoping it is because I overdid things, increasing my walk too quickly from two miles a day to four. Really, I think I should be able to do four miles. Ugh! Unfortunately, the achy reminds me of the way my hip and legs felt last spring before the pain spread and worsened. I am trying to be positive - maybe too much activity, maybe pain from healing, maybe she from Arimidex, maybe a virus. See, I really do read this thread. Anyway, today I also have terrible nausea. I know many of you can relate to that. I am thinking it is a virus or nerves. I am scheduled for blood test, onc appt and first Zometa infusion on Tuesday. Hey, maybe the pain and nausea are just dress rehearsal for that infusion.
I hope everyone has a good night.
