Sisters - bring that list to your medical team and see what they have to say about
the various treatments.
There is a commercial on TV for I think Cancer Centers of America. In it a lady goes to see the medical team there and says she was told she only had about
a year to live.
The doctor responded, we have just checked you out head to foot - no where on your body is a expiration date.
I really like that line
Keep on fighting!
Sisters be sure to take care of yourselves, your loving hubbies will need you to be at your best.
One thing I came to realize as I was getting ready for my docetaxel tretaments. Chemotherapy - just the very word is scary, Zimac who was invaluable in helping me accept the me docetaxel tretaments, Zimac and medecided should be named something else - not chemo. There are just too many out of date beliefs about
chemo that are no longer valid.
I started my docetaxel yesterday and its really something I can do - and a treatment that will crush this blank blank beast.
Nhwife - Lupron is good, be sure to get something for the bones also - such as Zometa.
Another dear friend Susan R once posted.
Put the PCa to the side today (as much as possible) and take the day to share your love and life with another person. Do something for yourself that you greatly enjoy. We have been touched with a disease that can be terminal, but not today, not for us. We fight and the best fight, the way to scream at the disease "YOU DONT CONTROL ME, I AM GONNA KICK YOUR CANCER A**!" is to live the best life you can for as long as you can. We all have bad days, but today doesn't have to be one of those, lets all live the best day we can. Enjoy life, take control of us, put the cancer away today and do something special. Go fishing, cuddle with your spouse, play with your children/grandchildren, take a walk, go bowling, call your siblings....whatever it is. YOU DESERVE THE BEST DAY TODAY Embrace your life, just for today, it is only a beginning.
We will beat this crap!
