    hi, just wanted to share what helped me (in addition to medications) with side effects of chemo.  If you'd like to share what helped you, that would be great.  Please know i am respectful that people have different experiences and if you are having very tough side effects my heart goes out to you, may they go away soon and may you have strength to get through them. Also, I got these wholistic supports by r...

      hi, I agree ask doc - you're smart to have this question - and pets are a blessing at this tough time so i hope it's a "go."

        you don't need a right to be scared, in general in life, i say.  You are having real symptoms to look into!  Keep working with your doctor until all your concerns are addressed.  Do know that women's reproductive health is complex and pain, icky bleeding (not to diminish the anemia, that's a tough one), cysts, birth control side effects quite often happen over the course of a lifetime, without any expe...

            hi, I am not a doctor but see many positives in your diagnosis stage level (A1 - that's a great diagnosis.  I am also Stage 1 and felt great relief at that), that you got surgery and a strong bout of chemo.  I hope all the best for you!  I look forward to being able to say "just completed chemo" and I am not surprised that what follows is some understandable real worry.  By this time you have seen...

              This is a message of caring to you.  You are brave to be asking this question.  I agree with the other reply you are not a statistic.  When you say you would want to do what you can now if you knew the prognosis was not good -- maybe some of those  things would be good to do no matter what!  Seems to me if you are talking about special experiences (trips?) and/or about speaking deeply to your...
