I have never had the opportunity to welcome you to the board, but want to post a note to you to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you wait the visit with your onc. Like others have said, if the spots are gone after being on chemo, that is good news. Take a deep breath, and remember we are waiting this out with you.
Hugs and Prayers,
I have never met you but feel close to you because of all the things we have shared together. This had to be a terrible moment when they told you about the lungs and spleen and what they found. My prayers are with you and your right it is good news the spots in the lungs and spleen are gone now. The taxol isn't as bad as the A/C so you will feel better with it. It will help ensure that the spot don't come back so lets cross our fingers and hope that these other things they found are a thing of the past. Gosh I know what you mean when you say you keep telling your hubby you just want it over and to get back to normal. I have faith and hope that things will start going your way soon. My prayers are with you and I think I see the pink feather parade marching your way...keep us posted cause we all care about you... skeeter1
Bern, Everything your are going through you have a right to voice what you are feeling so don't feel bad about telling us what you are feeling and thinking, your postings have not been grumpy in anyway. So no need for appologies k... This has to feel like a nightmare to you. I was still had a little sick feeling a week after my last chemo too, but I am sure your nerves and emotions are adding to how you feel also. Do what you think you need to do lawyer wise what makes you feel better then do it. I get so emotional and think if I ever had to go to a lawyer to fight a battle like yours it would make me feel sicker, but everyone is different and some people feel better afterwards. So do what you feel is needed only you know how it will affect you. Bummer about the temp but at least its low grade and not screaming at you. (lol I always say when someones temp is high or blood pressure its screaming at you) silly huh. well anyway keep voiceing here how you feel and never feel bad about it k.. we all understand...I do hope you start to feel better soon and get back to normal. I went through that and to tell you the truth up until about 3 weeks ago I wondered too if I would ever get there. It seems to come back slowly but it will. Your in my prayers and remember your not alone k...skeeter1
Hi Bernadette! I am glad that you have found the strength to look at this in a positive light. It is tough but it will help. You said that you had a headache and were sick to your stomach. Do you have kids that are in school are have you been out in public where there are large groups of people? There has been a flu that has hit our schools here w/ those same symptoms. Headache, sick stomach, low grade temp. Normally it only lasts about 48 hrs but we have to remember that what is normal now for others is NOT normal for us. Please check w/ your onco. He can give you something stronger for the nausea. There are all types of meds available when one doesn't work. You just have to ask as most onco won't tell you. Has your onco said anything to you about Herceptin?
As for the attorney, go for it! I think mentally it will give you the edge that you need right now. Something positive from the anger that you are feeling.
Hang in there. You will have days when you will feel good again. It just takes time to fight this darn disease. You may experience some muscle aches from the Taxol. I did. I believe that there is a past post that discusses Taxol.

No apologies necessary! We are here to listen and support and vent and whine and share whatever is on our minds.....you have every right to feel down and we understand that. Hopefully you will start getting some real answers to the questions so that you know what you are up against and can fight, fight, fight! For me, knowledge is power, and I needed to know everything I could.
Hang in there!
