      There is one date I remember every year. It is April 1 2013. That is they date the Dr. told me cancer #2 would be back in 18 months. I made a bet that I would be cancer free on that date 5 years later. The Dr, bailed on that bet and quit the clinic to go into full-time research, OldGuy I think you should get up every day and celebrate it as a daily anniversary

      I knew I had cancer in July 2012, as I was in recovery following hernia surgery. I don't use that date. Nor do I use the date I had my biopsy. My cancerversary is 8/23/12, which is the date of my hysterectomy and the day they were able to definitively stage my cancer as IV.

    If you lost your taste, how long did it take to lose it?

      If I remember correctly my sense of taste went all haywire as soon as I started chemo. I'm now a year and a half after treatment and it's pretty much back to normal. But some things still taste a little weird.

      Depends on what cocktail they are giving you and for how long. When I was on chemo there were times when food tasted like cardboard. Although I like ketchup on almost everything, could not stand the taste of ketchup during chemo. Same thing with avocados. Some foods had a metallic taste to them. I learned after my chemo was over using plastic silverware helps with this. My tastebuds normalized post chemo in a matter of a few weeks.

      I have used a Bullet blender for a couple of years. It works great.

      I have not, but it seems that just about any type of blender would work, wouldn't it?
