Please tell me it didn't take too long for your eyelashes to grow back... I swear - I'm struggling with that more than anything for some stupid reason. Eyelashes! I feel lame even worrying about it, but still.... and forget the false eyelashes - the glue is beastly. Hope you're doing great! All the best, Francine Sylvie — congratulations — you did it! Please tell me it didn’t take too long for your eyelashes to grow back… I swear — I’m struggling with that more than anything for some stupid reason. Eyelashes! I feel lame even worrying about it, but still.… and forget the false eyelashes — the glue is beastly.

Hope you’re doing great!

All the best,

My husband is now going through is second bout with cancer and seems to be doing very well. I wanted to let you know about something that helped me with hot flashes though. Drink anywhere from 2 to 8 oz of pomegranate juice a day. It works for about 70% of the women. It tastes pretty good. And I could actually sleep through the night. Keep up the positive outlook and good luck. Carol Hi Sylvie,

Yes, it is no picnic but you came through it beautifully. Now the radiation part... Don't be afraid to ask the doctor for special creme if you experience any radiation burns. There is a prescription creme in a little tube that is just for radiation burns. I went through two tubes and wish I'd started earlier. I just accepted that I would get burned because of my light skin and didn't realize how bad the burn was till the doctor said it was the worst she'd seen and asked to take a picture of it. (She's been doing radiation therapy for over 20 years!) I had only had two weeks of treatments at that time and still had a month to go. People think the worst patient is the one that complains about every little thing but the truth is, the one that doesn't say anything and just thinks that's the way it's supposed to be is the one that causes the doctors to climb the walls! Speak up, ask questions, complain if there's something not quite right and keep on doing well. When treatments are done, get on with yur life. No one can live it like you do. Laura Sylvie,

My baby sister is starting her chemo on 03/15/07. She has a lot of concerns. She is extremely nervous and stressed out. I am hoping she will make it through her 7 cycles with good results like you. Thanks for sharing your experience and for inspiring others who might be going through chemo and radiation. We are in the heart of Texas. Linda Your words are very encouraging.
