Re: 15 years later

Hi Kitty9 and everyone else,

Hi guys,

Re: Chemo-induced Osteoporosis: Seeking Healthy ways of Rebuilding Healthy Bones

There was a promising trial of tomato paste and post-menopausal Italian women a while back. Of course, I can't find it now. The one-off bone loss from chemopause is substantially higher than from...

Re: pH Balanced Gel for atrophic vaginitis in bc survivors

I have tried the lactic acid gel and it does make a difference, although it is a bit messy. There can be a problem with stinging, so it might be easier to ease in with something that gets the vagina...

Re: Please let me know what you think i should do next

Re: 2 years vs. 1 year on Herceptin

The results of the two year arm have in the past been promised at particular conferences and then not materialised. It would be nice if this time something came out regarding the effectiveness.
