Hi Cindy, I don't have experience with rogaine either, but I have been taking Arimidex for 3years and it also causes hair loss. In the beginning I had a lot of hair loss (plus I was recovering from chemo) but as I adjusted to it the hair loss has lessened.
I would get another opinion from a different doctor. I can't believe your doctor is blowing you off like that. This is serious, and there must be something he/she can do to help you. Check with the office or your local hospital to see if you can get a real answer. blessings, JennaView Thread
Well now you ladies have me all blubbery and crying! I am SO happy to hear that Greg is doing so well. That is so wonderful and fantastic for you all. We have to believe in the greater good, for sure. If we don't believe, where would we be? Life is so tough sometimes, and hearing a story like this sure does warm my heart.
Stay safe and warm all. It is a blustery, snowy night in New England. A good night to cuddle up in a warm blanket with a good book and some hot chocolate!
Hi, they possibly could be dissolving staples. I do know people who have had those. I would have your friend reconfirm with the doctor just what kind of staples these are. Let us know! best - JennaView Thread
Hi Lisa, I am so sorry for all your pain and that no one responded to you sooner. Many regulars don't post as often, but know that you are heard! I can certainly relate to all the chemo pain, especially from taxol. It lasted for several months after treatment, but things DO get better. Do you have a good support system? I hope there are family members and friends who can help you out. I know it is tiring and frustrating, but you have to stay strong! Please let us know what happened with your tests.
Hi lukeperry, Reading your posts I can't believe all you have been through! I don't know what that discharge could possibly be, and I hope your gyno can shed some light on it. For me, that part of my anatomy has never been the same. I do have pain during sex, but have dryness from the arimidex. This battle is never really over! Let us know what this new opinion is - there has to be something that can help you! Your story about the bread falling apart cracked me up!!! I can't imagine the conversations your neighbors must be having!! Have you gotten any strange (or jealous) looks??? LOL We have to keep up the sense of humor - look forward to hearing some good news from you ~ JennaView Thread
I am very sorry to hear all that your BW and your family have had to endure. I also have no personal experience to share, but I can certainly tell you that I am sending you tons of blessings and prayers that your BW improves greatly and has a good quality of life. Please let us know what this test tells you.
Jill, how awful that the scheduled was mixed up and now you have to go back! Honestly, it is too bad they couldn't have fit your mom in - the waiting is the worst! I just want you to know that I'm thinking of you all and pray that your mom does well with the appointment. I am glad to see the docs being pro-active and getting the tests done quickly. Here is praying for "negative" results. Please keep us posted. JennaView Thread
