My breast cancer -- more information

Many thanks to Sheila for advice on my breast cancer.

I met with a surgeon on Wednesday and got more details. The surgeon herself seemed kind of ditzy and confused me with other patients. She had met with the radiologist earlier that [more]

Re: Double breast cancer

Sheila, thank you very much for the efforts you have made on my behalf. I phoned the Breast Cancer Specialty Clinic (BCSC) at the SCCA and spoke with a nurse there. I have already made an appointment with an oncologist in the Sequim Olympic Medical [more]

Re: Double breast cancer

The upside to MRI is that it uses magnetism and radio frequency but NO radiation. The downside is that it's expensive. My insurer requires pre-approval and I was turned down. But I wrote to the radiologist asking him to explain to the insurer why [more]

Double breast cancer

I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer (specifically, invasive ductal carcinoma, the commonest form of breast cancer). One tumor in each breast. Just what I need: double breast cancer.

As a humble METAR weather reporter, I always try to tease out signal from noise in economic and market fluctuations. Unlike many economic writers, I'm not trying to generate copy, much less excitement. I'm not a perma-bull or a perma-bear. The [more]

Re: Colovion: RIP

Please don't say "RIP" because that is usually used for people who have died. I'm still sad about the death of trenchrat. There is a big difference between death and being excised from TMF.
