Avatar n tn I just wanted to let the world know that my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in sept. 2008.She just had a pet scan and it came up clean.It showed my mom is already in remission.What a blessing for her and our family for now!
Avatar f tn How long can a woman be in remission for Ovarian Cancer I had total hysterectomy in 1994 and am having pain in the same area that I did when diagnosed.
Avatar n tn So far so good. As far as we know, the cancer is in remission, (no signs of cancer in the body). A homeopathic vet also told me to give my dog Fractionated Pectin powder mixed in with food, as its supposed to rid the body of mestastasis. He recommended "Thorne Research's" brand, but probably other modified citrus pectins would do the job, (Thorne's is expensive.). Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I was recently hospitalized for liver failure and found out it was due to Hep C. With treatment, the virus can go into remission. It is a terminal disease the same as cancer, and like cancer CAN sometimes with therapy, be thrown into "remission". This I knew. But my question is the same as the one above, asking if the virus is contagious while in "remission".
Avatar f tn I have read on various sites that fibromyalgia has periods of remission. I have yet to experience this. I might have a better than average day per week, but that is about it. Do any of you experience periods of remission and for how long? I have been in a constant flare up for about a year now. I can look back over the years and see when i started to have some of the problems that i have now, and those symptoms started when i was about 25 and pregnant with my first son.
414018 tn?1268611672 I have a friend in my local support group diagnosed at stage 3c. She has been in full remission with no evidence of disease for around 4 years, She continues to look and feel great.
Avatar f tn m wondering if anyone has any positive experiences with Level 4 Ovarian cancer being cured or going into remission? I had an emergency hysterectomy (except for my uterus) to remove a cancerous lump from my ovary.The surgeon said I was in critical condition. I feel much better now but the doctor said there are some black cancer spots in my lung and in my stomach. So I will be receiving chemotherapy next week for 6 sessions. It will include carboplatin and taxol.
Avatar n tn went through 6 cycles of carbo-taxol next few months and have been in remission ever since. That makes it eight years of cancer free life. Each case however is different. Personally I feel a little adjustment to your lifestyle and loads of positive attitude help. I was eating healthy all through my treatment and ensuring I do a bit of cardio to pump more blood. My parents stood firmly by me but that was all the support system I had so I never left work. I always kept myself busy.
Avatar f tn Now I do have a question. When someone gets a reoccurance is it still possible to have a decent remission time, I mean no chemo at all? Thanks and Happy Easter. Stay well.
498596 tn?1210700259 However a lady I know with colon cancer, who has been in remission 6 yrs, still has the stomach problems and bone aches. It varies between the individual and age and what chemos they took. I hope your mother does well.
4384361 tn?1399998230 In the meantime, my six month wait for bariatric surgery is nearly complete and my surgeon recommended a endoscopy to check out my portal vein prior to surgery. I had it done yesterday and she found possible cancer or an ulcer in my stomach. Doing my own research I've pretty much ruled out an ulcer so that leaves me with cancer. The biopsy is due back in a few days so I should know this week. I'm guessing lymphoma since that is related to the immune system.
Avatar f tn I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck I already know I have lung cancer, but my jaw hurts and the lymph nodes hurt, should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn After your first recurrence, what was the longest time in remission/cancer free? You had surgery/chemo, thought you were out of the woods, OVCA came back and you started on chemo again. After all this, what is the longest time you have been or are in remission? Thanks in advance.
741900 tn?1235160618 Can a person with Lupus really go into remission? After 22 years of having SLE my doctor told me last week that I am in remission. What does that mean? Will it flair up again? Has any of you been in a remission? What dosage of medication were you on when it happened? I want to be happy and excited but I don’t want to be disappointed either. My dosage right now is 4mg prednisone, 400mg Plaquinel, 125mg Imuran. Would love to hear some input.
Avatar f tn Remission can mean that the cancer is not detectable or that the small amount of remaining cancer is stable or inactive. Cancer-free means no cancer can be found. It is good your doc will still be following you closely. I have a friend diagnosed at 3c and she will hit her 5 yr cancer-free mark soon. She is well and happy and you will be the same. Enjoy and LIVE. I am happy for you.
120574 tn?1240767840 I finished chemo, but did not have a full remission. I am still on benefits. If I did have a full remission I still would get benefits due to what damage the chemo did to me. Check out their website for full details. I hope your remission continues so you'll never even be in need of benefits. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn It is re-assuring to know that there is still hope that she could be in a long remission. I am reading a lot about the need to target cancer stem-cells which seem to be the culprit leading to recurrences. I recently read an article from researchers from Yale that they had identified and characterized Ovarian cancer stem-cells. I realise that this is still at the research level and may be a while before it can be translated to bed-side.
Avatar m tn He had Stomach, Lymph and now Lung cancer, which doctors have said they cannot operate on. he was having a mix of Chemo and Radio in a field study during his first illness, and because of this scanned him very early in remission which found the Lymph Cancer. my family arent exactly open about it, and i feel stupid talking and asking about it sometimes being in a family thats mainly women, i feel i've taken it harder as he's the male influence in my life if that makes sense?
Avatar n tn My father who is now 83 yres old is diagnosed with non small cell cancer with a large 3 inch mass in his upper right side. They state it is somewhere between a stage 2 and 3 due to the size. He is schedules to start radiation treatment in a week. However, they did state he is fit enough to have sugery but there is not guarantee he would not have complications from this. We are struggling to determine what is the better path to take. Will the surgery give him a better chance vs the radiation.
Avatar n tn You are probably in remission. Hopefully forever but you need to have regular exams. This is the Ovarian Cancer forum. It is also a monster of a cancer. You also need to be pro-active with your cancer. Find out as much as you can and I'm sure you will be able to find a doctor in your area. If someone knows of a oncologist that specializes in rare cancers in her area, please jump in. I hope this helps. First thing is to get insurance!!!
Avatar m tn My father has just get a diagnostic of stomach cancer..Right now he is at the hospital waiting for a surgery, but the doctor said maybe his cancer cannot be removed by surgery, then does that mean he is condamned? Or chemotherapy can still cure him? Im really scared.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed 9 months ago. I did not get a full remission. My cancer is not as sensitive to platinum chemo as some. My cancer is stable though. I am thankful for that. I wish your mother the best possible outcome. There are many women that live well for many years. This forum has been a help to me and I hope we can also help you and your mom.
Avatar f tn I'm in remission with crohn's since January. My gastro told me that now it's ibs. I have bloating, pain in my stomach, literally, and constipated. I've been cramping a lot lately. Recently, I had free-floating bloody mucus a few times when I went to the bathroom. I also get nauseated at times.. Is the bloody mucus a cause for concern?
