Just got back from the Doctor.  The news is what I expected.  I have new cancer activity in the nodes on my original cancer side.  I will be starting weekly taxol, with no break, until we see some progress.  I have done the taxotere (a form of taxol) before.  I will start on Wednesday.  The doctor said it was treatable and thats good enough for me.  Ok, its not, I would like remission, but I will take treatable anytime.  Enjoy your weekend.  Wish me luck next week.

I'm sorry you got this news. Treatable is good. Hopefully the taxol will be good to you. Keep the faith and we'll be there with you.

I'm sorry to hear this but am glad the dr has a plan. I had taxol for 15 months as part of a study and it helped me. I pray it will help you, too.

I'm so sorry to hear you have to deal with all of this.  But your doctor sounds like he has a handle on it for you.  I will say many prayers for you to have quick success with the taxol.

Vicky: I am so sorry that you got bad news. It is always a shock to know that you aren't in remission anymore. But, as your onco said, it is treatable. You can beat this again. Just remember that. I was on taxol for awhile. I know that it will work for you. Try and enjoy the weekend and get geared up to fight!
Hugs and prayers...Deb

I'm sorry you didn't have a pork chop bone.  I've been thinking and praying for you all day.  I hope you have remission and/or and easier time of it.  Good luck on the taxol.
I so look forward to seeing you on a week from sunday.  You let me know if it will be too much for you, and I'll just come visit and set a spell.

I'm sorry to hear this.  I'm hoping that all goes well and you don't have too hard a time with Taxol.  I was on Taxotere and it wasn't too bad.  Good luck!

Vicky, I wish the news was better, just as you do. But I think you're in good hands. Treatable is definitely good. You remain in my prayers.

So sorry to hear that you didn't get great news but like everyone has said - treatable is good.  Your doctor is obviously on top of this and hopeful for another remission.  I will be praying for you daily - keep us updated.

Vicki, I am always sorry to hear when one of my friends has to go on weekly treatment. That has to be a real bummer, but you need to stay with any program that will help keep the monster at bay. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that shortly you will be able to lessen the treatments. Hugs MK
