  • What stage is my melanoma?
    I was originally diagnosed in 2010 with nodular melanoma, Clarke level IV, and summer 2013 a subcutaneous tumour was removed from near the site of the original melanoma. CT showed no evidence of disease to organs. Medical oncologist said I was cancer free, skin oncologist told me that 50/100 people with my pathology report may survive 5 years. Then was told that a thickening in the lining of the ileum appeared to be auto immune disorder. Further testing confirmed a diagnosis of Crohn's disease. I would like to get out of country medical travel insurance. What do I answer about my diagnosis on Questionnaire? Has anyone had luck with Cholestrymine for Crohn's and avoided steroids?

  • Isoniazid: the downside continued
    I also have extreme fatigue. I can sleep 8 hours and then take a 4 hour nap. I have dizziness which seems to be increasing in the last few weeks. I have nausea on and off. I have diarrhea in the morning 45 minutes after taking it. Then I am mostly constipated for the rest of the day. It seems like my hair is thinning. My skin is drying out or becoming considerably less elastic.

  • Gemfibrozil, depression and sleepiness
    I would like to hear from anyone who has had these symptoms, and how they dealt with it, by either lowering dosage or quitting the med, or other. Also would like to hear from others who continued to drink moderately and if this drug lowered their triglycerides...or those who were no longer able to stomach alcohol and had to quit....or had other reactions to gemfibrozil and alcohol use. My depression is becoming severe. I have life changes as well, so I can't figure if it is the drug. Had to take it as my triglycerides were over 900. They are now down to 250. Thanks
