  1. Yeah Barb!! It's hard to believe isn't it!? You go girl!!! Let all of us in the Durva Club celebrate many more anniversaries with you! Opal
  2. BridgetO, thanks. I'm hoping for that as well. Right now my arm is not sore but I have a black and blue mark. Never before! We've endured worse, I think. Opal
  3. Hi All, wanted to share that I did get my first Pfizer vaccine 2 days ago. So far so good. Right after the shot my arm was pretty sore and I felt tired that day and slept like a baby all night, actually the best night sleep I had in months. Strange huh? Other then that I'm good. Now just waiting for early May for #2 and hope all goes as well. Thanks to all for sharing your experience/stories. Opal
  4. Hi LexieCat, I don't know what the timeframe was for you on this and forgive me but I have to ask, was any consideration given to the fact you got the vaccine and now you have changes in lymph nodes? I'm hearing and reading the vaccine can cause nodes to swell/change. Hearing this on the news and reading about it makes me very nervous as I sure don't want the vaccine to wake up my treated lymph nodes. I know this must sound trivial in the scheme of things but after I received a flu shot with my first infusion causing me months of rashes, I tend to question is anyone looking into this? Opal
  5. I will do. Two weeks to wait.
  6. Thanks everyone for sharing your experience. Much appreciated. 🐇
  7. Hey Lou, thanks for posting. I'm scheduled for 4/17 and I'm pretty sure it will be the Pfizer one.
  8. Hey There Lou, did you get your vaccine on the 24th? How goes it? Opal
  9. Cleveland clinic also has info on Cancer and the Covid 19 vaccines
  10. A Cancer Connect Link on vaccines Https://news.cancer connect.com/treatments-care/Covid 19-vaccines-and-cancer
  11. Barb, that's what I read in Adverse Effects for Durva. Something to be aware of. It seems they have been updated since I first started on it and read them. Of course it has been in use longer now. More studies. I'm holding off on vaccine for now. LexiCat...thanks for posting. Good points you make. Opal P.S. I'm not complaining, Durva has been a blessing
  12. Barb, That's how I feel. Does the vaccine rev up immune system? I don't want it revved more. My joint and muscle pain that started mid Immuno infusion with Durva has gotten worse over last months. (I'm more then a year off Durva.) An adverse reaction that can start long after treatment has stopped. Just have to take a chance I suppose.
  13. LexiCat, wondering if you were able to get the vaccine yet, if so, any side effects? Opal
  14. Barb, thanks for sharing that. Good to know. Maybe you will share what you learn in your search? I have found it to be more difficult to get now then was anticipated. A few people I know in medical field had some side effects after the second shot. Thanks for info.
  15. Some of the reported symptoms of the Covid virus is that it attacks your lungs, affects oxygen levels and respiratory system especially those with a weakend immune system. I guess I don't understand how getting the vaccine help? Thank you Roseanne for sharing your humble opinion, and you too Lou. it is appreciated! Opal
