    Welcome home Pammie. That's certainly the place to be. Joan
  2. Kim, I'm soooo sorry for your terrible losses. Please accept my sincere condolences. Joan
  3. Bill, I have to agree with Jamie that you "are awsome". I think any former smoker can relate to everything you are going through. Remember that the main thing about cigarettes is the addiction. Plain & simple. Yeah sure, I loved em too, but it was the addiction that kept me going when I knew I should stop. I wish you and Kim and everyone else who joins you the very best. I'd be happy to help in any way I can. Joan

  8. Hi Trish, I totally remember the first day I went without my wig. My head was freezing, but I didn't care one bit. I was also unsure of what to do, but it didn't take me long to decide to color my hair. I've been doing it now for over a year and what really makes me happy is when I need a haircut! Congrats. Joan
  9. My thanks to Dr. West for a very good informative site. Joan

  14. That was my exact chemo . Even after I finished the Taxol/Carbo, I stayed on the Avastin. My tumor shrunk by 50% after my first scan and I've been stable ever since. I had a slight progression at one point that was handled with radiation. When I was on the Avastin I was not allowed to take Aleve because of the bleeding possibility, but other than that there were no significant side effects. A little tiredness and nausea and did manage to become dehydrated. Very important to drink, drink, drink. Good luck.
