Living With Limitations in the Family
This is the misunderstood side of my life - how I live with limitations. The other day, I visited my mother who also has RA. We went for a walk. I don't usually go for walks because I get plenty of exercise at the gym and going for walks isn't a great exercise for me. My back hurts and I get tired.Other family members insist my mother go for walks too. They give her directions like if she would walk further she can get in better shape. She also should do her exercises, which she does. And she rides her little stationary bike while watching the news for 30 minutes every night. She gets plenty of exercise and really can't do more. I go to the gym three times a week and that's plenty of exercise for me.My mother has had RA since 1989 and I have had it since 2012 (I think, maybe 2013). In addition we both have bad backs. She has had numerous back surgeries. I have just had cancer a couple of times.With our health, we are not interested in getting healthier by working out because we are more interested in maintaining their health than becoming body builders.

We went down hill (because the hill is steeper if we go uphill) and we decided we would go until we felt we had walked enough and then would turn around. We went past the neighbors across the street, and t...
Cowden syndrome (CS) is a multiple hamartoma syndrome associated with the development of various tumors, including endometrial cancer. However, the histology of CS-associated endometrial cancer remains to be fully described. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with CS having endometrial endometrioid carcinoma with ovarian metastasis demonstrating morula-like features. A 31-yr-old, nulliparous, Japanese woman presented with abnormal genital bleeding. Endometrial biopsy revealed endometrioid carcinoma with an extensive morular formation, partially resembling atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM). Moreover, ...

Basel, 13 December 2019 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced the Phase III IMspire150 study, in people with previously untreated BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma, met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). The study showed adding Tecentriq ® (atezolizumab) to Cotellic® (cobimetinib) and Zelboraf® (vemurafenib) helped to reduce the risk of disease worsening or death, compared to placebo plus Cotellic and Zelboraf. A significant and clinically meaningful improvement in PFS was demonstrated in the study. The safety ...
