Roberta, I can smell your flowers and all the veggies and oh, the basil, I was so spoiled when I was a child. I would help pick everything in the garden and couldn't reach the top of the corn. I love it so. I would probably still be frozen in a snow bank in N. Syracuse if we hadn't moved. I cannot handle the cold. Nor can I handle the heat of Nevada. Boy, I went from one extreme to another. The only thing I can say is we have wonderful restaurantrs here. But no good dirt for a garden. My infection is better today. Pink, not red accept for the bottom. One more day on Antibiotics.
Roberta, I haven't had a sweat or hotflash since I started taking the Paxil. And no side effects. I am so surprised. I hope other ladies that are having sweats and hot flashes ask their doctors about it. I do have more energy. I was really work out. I think my infection hasn't spread. I'm still red and its hot. I have an appt. in the morning so I hope he will give me some hope. I'm so close. I don't want to lose my expanders now.View Thread
Jenna, I'm glad your are lessening. Mine were 2 to 3 times during the day and they woke me up at night. my hair was wet. I had to put a towel on my pillow. this is such a relief. I hope it keeps up. If it can help others and they have no side effects I say go for it. $6.00 a month is worth it. I hope you are doing well Jenna let me know. love n hugs faithView Thread
Judy, I have news I contacted the Oncology group and spoke with a supervisor. She said there was nothing in my file about a request for a new Oncologist. I filled her in and gave her the dates and the name of the same girl I had spoken to and told her I was promised a call back. She apologized and said she had an Oncologist I would like (lots of good feedback) and she would work at getting me changed to him and a quick qppt. I also talked to her about Fareston. She wasn't familiar with it. I told her I didn't want to take Tamoxifin if I could try Fareston. She said she would call me back by or before Thursday. I contacted my Ins and they said I was maxed out for this year on Medicare Part D. Fareston costs $900. a month but because its a cancer drug I would only have to pay 20% which would be $180. a month. That is better than 93% of the cost. So I just have to see if it will mix with my other medications. And the paxil is working great. No side effects and no sweats or hot flashes so far. lov n hugs faithView Thread
My husband saw an article from Dr. Oz about Hot Flashes. I saw my PCP last week and asked her about Paxil (Generic-Paroxetine) and she said I could try it and she prescribed the lowest dose to see how I did after the first 24 hours I am please to report I have not had one sweat or hot sweat since. It is an Anti-Depressant. I haven't had any side effects from this which is rare for me. Check it out - Research. This was really waring on my nerves so I got a double +. hugs N love faithView Thread
Hi Luke, I have been coming here for a while now and I still get confused from time to time. It's not just you. I'm glad you have finished your Rad treatments, I hope without and side effects. Goot luck to you. A new friend in my prayers. love n hugs faithView Thread
Hi Tiffeny, I'm so sorry you are faced with such heart wrenching decisions and with dealing with your sister's breast cancer. It is almost too much to bear at such a young age. Seek all the advice you can get. I have four first cousins that have died from breast cancer and two aunts. They are all from my dad's side of the family. My mom was the only girl on her side and she had one brother. They didn't check for bc back then as they didn't have Mammogram's or Ultra Sound testing. My cancer didn't show on either test. My oncologist suggested my daughter be tested. And she has two daughters. I would want them to have as much information as they can get.. They and you need to be here for a very long time. If this test can help it should be researched to the hilt. lov n hugs faithView Thread
