Hi everyone!

I was just diagnosed with chondrosarcoma, a bone cancer. I actually found out after I had the tumor removed from my sternum, so I've completed the treatment. Chondrosarcoma doesn't respond to chemo or radiology, so I guess I'm in the monitoring stage. My first follow up CT scan is tomorrow as well as my first appointment with the oncologist (it's been a weird journey). I'm still healing from the surgery and am still very limited in what I able to do, so I'm trying to figure out how I can get back on the healthy lifestyle road. Not to mention trying to work my way through the psychological part of finding out I have cancer and what that means.

Thanks for your support!

Good morning, everyone. I am new to Spark. I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer last September. I had a lumpectomy and just finished chemotherapy. Thanks to the steroids and not feeling well enough to keep up with my exercise routine, I gained ten pounds. Add that to the ten I was working on before. YIKES! I was actually training for a half marathon at diagnosis and I am slowly trying to work back to a good running routine. I still get so tired and I am about to start radiation. I just need to be patient with myself and realize recovery will take some time. Patience is not a strong point for me, so I am hoping to get some good support and motivation here.

Debbie

HI guys! I've been on SP for 4 years now and I just got diagnosed with breast cancer on the 16th of December...literally 2 weeks after my 27th birthday. Turns out that lump I felt back on November 1st was ER+ HER2+ cancer. I'll be getting a port on the 18th and starting chemo on the 19th...and well, I figured it was time for me to join a "cancer" SparkTeam.

My name is Cindy. I am a returning Sparker. I had breast cancer 3 years ago, with surgery and chemo. I had hoped I would lose some weight with chemo, but I gained. All I wanted to eat was mac and cheese. I am seen every 6 months. I could not have radiation due to an implant. I tried a couple of the estrogen blockers. Weight gain and increased depression were problems. I asked for a month off and felt better. I had a long conversation with my oncologist and based on the grading of my tumor, treatments I had, etc. continuing to take the medication would only potentially have impacted my long term outcome by 6%. I decided to take my chances because of the difference in how I felt. I love my oncologist, he is open, honest, down to earth, tells things straight, says when he doesn't know. He admits he would prefer I continue to take the meds, however once we talked about my Oncotype and multiple factors, he understood and ultimately supported my decision. I don't know how you completely chase away the ghost of cancer. I do better some times than others.

Each moment can be a new beginning!

Hi,
I am Mary Ann. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2014, a week after I joined Sparkpeople. I had surgery, chemo, and radiation. I gained weight during 2014 before the cancer diagnosis due to having to start on prednisone for long term use to treat a rare type of vasculitis. I also gained weight during my cancer battle. I am excited to lose some weight, and to be on my healthy lifestyle journey. I changed my username to PGBack- Please get back. I am so glad that I found Sparkpeople.

Hello everyone,

I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma 4 years ago. It went into submission after about 6 months of chemo, but has become active again. I take so many meds for the side effects of chemo (neuropathy...) that all cause weight gain and I do love my sweets. I have put on over 25 pounds (20 in the past year) that I really need to do something now.

The journey is an interesting one and full of surprises, but I wouldn't trade it for any other life.

Hi. I just registered for SP this week and thought this team would be a good fit for me...yes, I am over 50 and overweight. I have always struggled with weight, but previously have been able to manage my weight. However, 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, which my doctors treated aggressively. This meant chemotherapy for a year and radiation therapy halfway through the treatment.

After my second chemotherapy cycle, I noticed that I had gained 10 pounds - 5 pounds each cycle. I asked the nurse at the third therapy session and she advised that they pump everyone so full of steroids to counter the nausea, that weight gain is common. Consequently, I noticed a 5 pound increase for every one of the 17 cycles. It was a pack of weight.

Forty pounds came off very quickly and I was hopeful. All for naught. For the past three years I have struggled with losing the remaining 50 pounds to no avail. I signed up for SP on Monday, with the hopes of keeping myself accountable and sharing the weight loss struggle with others.

I look forward to meeting you all through discussions and wish us all a very happy and profitable journey.

Hi Jan, I'm also a long time member to Sparkpeople, and am a survivor of colorectal cancer. I finished my chemo in July. I gained weight from the steroids that I had to take. My nails still have black stripes and crack so easily. I haven't found anything that helps. I'm a teacher and am still off work due to my neuropathy. The doctor recommended B complex vitamins so I'm trying that. I'm going to be part of a study that looks at the effects of e excise on quality of life and reducing recurrence of colon cancer. I hope that helps with the butt kicking to get some pounds off. Welcome back to Sparkpeople, let's do this!

MOMOFJACKJACK - My surgery was for stage IIIc ovarian cancer. I don't know that my experience is that comparable. I can say to not get discouraged at having to take baby steps. The important thing is to keep doing as much as as your medical team says is OK.

Hi Everyone, I am a 2 year breast cancer survivor, stage 3 invasive ductile carcinoma. as well at a 1 year survivor of uterine and stomach cancers, it's not been a fun ride, I still get very sick extremely easy and I too have a fight with taking the weight I put on off, I did great the first go round, the doctors told me not to lose any weight that my body couldn't handle any other changes so I didn't. 5 months after the chemo and radiation was over for the breast cancer here comes Miss Jolly uterine cancer with a backing of stomach cancer right along with it. they say I'm lucky to be alive.. I say I'm blessed by Gods Own Hand.. It's nice to be here, I've never seen this site before and one of my doctors suggested it..

I'll just jump in here. Over the last 2 years my energy level has plummeted and my weight has skyrocketed. Turns out I had thyroid cancer. I just had my thyroid removed last week and am full of questions. As I get artificial hormones will my energy return or even improve? That is the biggest one weighing on my mind. I haven't started any medication or iodine radiation yet so everything is still so up in the air. While I'm recovering I want to hang onto as much activity as possible. I would love to talk to others about energy after surgery and little steps to get going again. I am happy everyone here is a survivor and with the best for all. Thank you.

HI! JAN !! My name is RITA, I was the one that sent that "short" note. I am 67 and I'm a cancer survivor because I go to the Doctor when something doesn't feel right. It takes some time to sit and listen to it & check out area's that were causing pain yesterday or today. The more that I mentioned; was I was hit by a car broke 5 segments of my spine, 2 in my hip, had a massive hematoma ( blood pool ) with whiplash. To add accident to injury both the trauma Hospital were in Code red (not accepting trauma patients) so I had to go to another State, over a road that was being renovated it took 1 hour and 15 mins I prayed to pass out but, I didn't. When I arrived in the ER the Dr. said to me I thought you were a corpse coming in. I told him the lord has something for me to do. so I'm not going to die until it is my time. ONLY GOD know's the hour and time of my death and JESUS CHRIST has been with me every step on the way. WELL another short story!!!

All things are possible through Jesus Christ JUST BELIEVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WeLCOME MY NAME IS RITA! This is my 3 attempt to get a message to you, I would get to the send and before I hit the button "boom" everything would be gone. I/m sitting there saying what do you mean web page gone AAAAAAAHHHH!!!! I wanted to tell you to talk to your Doctor and make a list so you don't forget anything. What you shared could be from chemo or could from low vitamins and minerals also from the chemo. I read an article that said the nails can show different illness in the body just by their color, texture, lines, the moons and size of the moon it was very interesting? How scientific I don't know, ask your Doctor that one too. Here 1/2 page is gone and I haven't even gotten to the important stuff. I wanted to tell you I had breast Sarcoma in 1980 I had a radical done no chemo. or radiation. I took Tamoxifen for 5 yrs. the American Cancer Society paid for it all. GOD BLESS THEM!! In 1995, I had uterine Carcinoma had a total hysterectomy no chemo. or radiation. in 2013 I had surgery for melanoma no chemo. or RAD. yet?? I have left my troubles in GOD'S AND JESUS CHRIST HANDS and so should you. Believe it or not the story doesn't end here there is more!!!!!!

All things are possible through Jesus Christ JUST BELIEVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! I'm Jan and I'm new to this group. I've been a Spark member for several years - off and on. Admittedly, mostly off. My last year has been consumed by treatment for breast cancer. I was diagnosed in March 2014 after finding 2 lumps myself. I had chemo, surgery and radiation treatment and am still on Herceptin for a few more months. I'm starting to mark off the anniversaries of my cancer milestones - 1 year since diagnosis, 1 year since chemo started and, the hardest for me emotionally, 1 year since I had my waist-length hair shaved off. It was a difficult year but I think I've been incredibly lucky and have had amazing doctors and support. My biggest residual trouble is neuropathy in my hands and feet. I'm slowly getting dexterity back in my hands, but my nails seem to refuse to grow. They are breaking further and further down and I'm at a loss at what to do. Any ideas out there?

So now I need to tackle these stupid pounds! I managed to maintain my weight thru treatment but in the past couple of months I seem to have been 'rewarding' myself and eating everything I wanted, which apparently was not good food. So I'm back with my Spark friends and hopefully I can get off my a** and get some exercise and start dropping some of this excess baggage. Anyone have any ideas for motivation?

Hello Everyone! I can see I am going to love this group!

I am recovering from cytoreductive surgery with internal heated therapy for pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) which started as stage 4 appendiceal carcinoma. I am on four month monitoring having had the baseline testing completed in March. I have had my appendix removed along with omentum and peritoneal lining as well as a total hysterectomy. I am starting to eat normally again and starting to walk as an exercise that does not tax my abdominal wall too much. Otherwise, I am in good spirits and grateful for having had it discovered and treated so well! Adjusting to the "new normal." It is nice to meet you all!

Hello! I am a 18 mos. survivor of lobular carcinoma. I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery at the same time. I was blessed that I had an excellent doctor who analyzed the MRI and MRI results, she found this hard to detect cancer in stage 1A.

Neither chemo nor radiation will work on this type of cancer, I am on the "hormone therapy" nice term for kill all hormones in my body daily! But still, so much better than in could have turned out.

Anyone else taking femarra/letrozole? Do you have side effects, and if so, what are they and how are you dealing with them?

Melissa and FLRED12 I am right there with you! It seems that now that I am regaining some strength/health I am regaining weight as well. Have ramped up the exercise this week and we will see what that does. I typically gain weight anyway when I work fat into muscle, but it's hard not to get discouraged....

Hello I am new! I am a 2 year survivor of cancer. I had stage one endometriosis cancer. I was diagnosed at 37! It was hard for me but telling my son and dealing with his fears was the hardest part. I will be 3 years cancer free in August. I underwent a total hysterectomy to remove the tumor. I lost weight prior to the surgery, and kept it off, but now its sneaked back on! I looking forward to being a part of this team, and losing weight!

My name is Melissa

Hi, I am Tina Lou and I survived cancer. In 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 3 high grade soft tissue sarcoma. In June of 2011, I had surgery to remove the tumor. It was successful and then I had radiation followed up with chemotherapy. Now, I am left with chronic pain in my nerves and muscles. I have a pain pump and we are working on getting the right amount of mediation to help me deal with the pain. I am now disabled and it is difficult for me to exercise. I have gained about 50 pounds since the diagnosis.
I look forward to meeting some of you and I hope to offer my support and understanding.

You will be in my prayers.

I know what you mean about Google; when I was diagnosed the first time, back 2003, it was after my surgeon confirmed I had cancer but before my first appointment with the oncologist. I got on Google too, and I too learned more than I probably needed to know, and really scared myself.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Well I know a lot more than I ever wanted to. Google and you get tons of info.

I have stage 2 Vaginal Cancer. Will start radiation therapy on Wed Mar 18.
Will have that 5x per week for about 5 weeks. Think silver tube placed where a tampon would normally go. The small speculum that was used when they did the biopsy was bad enough.

Cisplatin (chemo) 1x per week. Total treatment time about 8 weeks.
Success rate 85% at 5 yrs.

DDand SIL stopped over Fri am to pick up a tool. So I told them at that time figuring little ears
didn't need to hear it before the parents had time to absorb the news.

They broke it to the GK's on Fri. The 7yr old was the most emotional. We are really close since I have babysat him since he was 2 wks old.

They also met us at the Dr's office on Mon so they know the good, bad and the ugly.

When I went to bábysit them today, the 16 yr old GS didn't say anything. The 7yr old asked if it wad "spreadable" and 13yr old GD and I had big hugs.

Keep me in your thoughts and prayers. It will be appreciated.

Deanna

Just diagnosed with breast cancer. Doctor thinks we have caught it early enough to be able to take care of it with lumpectomy and radiation. Will be having my surgery in March. emoticon

Hello everyone,

I'm Sandra. I just found out last week that I have a malignant cyst on my liver. This was discovered during my egb procedure for the bariatric surgery that would have taken place on Monday, February 23, 2015.

I am told that this type of cancer is common, but my surgery is on hold until I visit with the oncologist for more testing to see if I have cancer anywhere else in my body.

Being positive about this situation since I have may other medical conditions and all can end in death at someone point. Praying for the best, but being a realist about my situation.

Glad to have found this group emoticon

This is not a team I wanted to join!!

Went to the Gyn with an issue I was having and after doing a vaginal exam he said. You may have cancer. Had a hysterectomy in 2003. Did follow pap smears. Had colposcopy results benign.

Am being refered to an Oncoligist Gyn for a CT scan and a biopsy will know more then

Hello, I am new here. I have just been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and really don't know what to do next. My weight has been up and down for months now. I just started a new exercise, healthy eating regime in November, when I got real sick out of nowhere. Now I know why.

Hoping to be able to lose some weight, learn to eat healthier and continue moving.
