Hi Again Ellen,
I really wish you all the best for December, and look forward to hearing the great outcomes following.... you know this time last year, I was dispairing in "living with cancer" over Christmas, and hoped so much to fast forward to this time now (07). Hoping for you, like us, a cancer-free Christmas! Hard as it may seem, it does pass.. good luck with all aspects of the treatment coming up in 2nd week of Dec...
Hi Julie, I think it would be really helpful to bump your post up, if you can..I can think of a few members who have chosen this treatment, but my memory would fail if I tried to recall exactly who. Hopefully they will all chip or chirp, in here....
Post any preparatory questions you think of Ellen ... bye for now ladies & take care, Lana
