  • Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)

    Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
    I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

  • What can i do to eliminate the pain and tenderness from superficicial thrombophlebitis in and under my breast
    after breast cancer surgery, I developed superficial thrombophlebitis. Cannot wear a bra because any pressure froma band on a bra upon the rib cage right under my breast is painful. Any ideas for relief? Will time hopefully make this go away and the veins become less painful? Do I need to see a vascular doc?
  • I have chf & a pacemaker. if the oncologist prescribes post-radiation letrozole, am i endangering another attack of heart failure?
    Just completed 26 radiation treatments of right breast for cancer. Am being offered to start

    letrozole this week for 5 years or the rest of my life. I am 88 years old, with various other health issues. Having been thru congestive heart failure last December, I don't want to take

    letrozole if it can bring on more CHF attacks that I have to try to control by a low salt diet, etc.

    Is there another hormone that would be better to fight estrogen driven breast cancer? My

    oncology appointment is tomorrow, Dec. 19, 2013 @ 2:00 pm. Please rush your reply so I

    may be more knowledgeable before I leave here about 12:00 CST. Thanks, Cathie

    Before having breast cancer I walked 10 miles a week, and did a 40 min exercise

    prescribed letrozole for 10 years, I can no longer do my 40 min exercise routine, nor the power walking that I have done for so many years.
    I suffer severe bone pain and fatigue.
    I have come off the medication (3 wks now) after taking letrozole for 6mths.
    I can no longer tolerate the awful side affects, and Im just hoping the cancer
    does not come back.
