Re: New to this site: My story

Dear lizbeth,

Thank you for your words of encouragement. I can't remember my MD's exact words, but it was something like the risk of recurrence will decrease to 10% for 3-5 years, with all the treatments (chemo, rad, hormones). I kept thinking, what happens after the 5th year?

I will definitively ask about using vit B. I knew about using ice for things such as mucositis, but never heard about icing hands. Do you mean submerging hands in ice-cold water during the chemo infusion or using an ice-pack? Wow, very interesting

Many blessings,
