Re: Sore mouth from chemo - ice therapy?

Mereda,

Re: Pathological complete response

mamathornt1,

Looking at the signatures from all of the ladies who included them, everybody did have radiation even though they had a PCR to treatment. Personally, I wouldn't even consider not...

Re: Thunderclap headaches anybody?

Thanks everybody for your responses. I do need to focus more on my breathing. Funny thing is that I do yoga on a regular basis. Guess I just havent't mastered the breathing.

Take care...

Re: red area around eyes

Donna,

I remember the area around my eyes being red after Herceptin. I believe it had to do with having constantly watery eyes. However, it cleared up within a few weeks of receiving my last...

Re: Thunderclap headaches anybody?

Thank you all for your replies. My CT scan came back perfectly normal! What a relief it was. The doctor does believe that it is due to not breathing properly. I will really have to concentrate on...

Re: Thunderclap headaches anybody?

Thanks Becky! Your post certainly relieved a great deal of stress. My doctor did mention that it could be due to not breathing correctly while lifting. I'm hoping that is all it is.

Take care,...

Re: Thunderclap headaches anybody?

Laurel,

I hope that you are right that this is not related to cancer at all. I'm thinking that it does have something to do with the neck also and isn't cancer. My biggest fear in this whole...

Thunderclap headaches anybody?

Hello everybody,

Re: Pelvic pain

Cleoland,

Wish I could help you. I've never experienced these symptoms and don't know what is could be. I agree with your thinking that it is likely has nothing at all to do with cancer. Since...

Re: Insurance Frustrations

Tracy,

Re: Update, good news, bad news

Tracy,

Glad to hear the news about your scans! I'm still shocked about Aetna denying H&P. I feel like I must be missing something. You were receiving H&P on Aetna insurance and then for no...

Re: Any of you have Axillary Web Syndrome?

Thank you all for your comments. My cords seem to have all stretched and/or popped. I did hot yoga for a while and that seemed to do the trick!
