Thank you all for the good wishes and sympathy, I should say my cousin passed from lung cancer as a primary rather than bc but very sad of course whatever the cause.  Sharon we measure cholestrol here in numbers with 4 being fine and anything higher troublesome, sorry to read you had a high number and good luck getting it down, my sister struggled with her's too.

Sharonma - well, clearly your body is making high cholesterol counts and even if you didn't eat baguettes, cheese and croissants, it would prob still be too high. What did doc suggest?  Statins?  They work, but they too have a down side from what I've heard.

Hope you can get it down to a less risky level!

Tricia, I'm very sorry about your cousin.

Sharon, I take statins (Crestor and Zetia). They started me on the "standard" dosage--something like 40 mg, I think, daily. The next day, both my legs hurt so much, I couldn't walk. Now I take 5 mg of Crestor three times a week and 10 mg of Zetia three times a week. For me at least, the low dosage has been enough to make the difference in my numbers without all the side effects. Also, David and I have both had the cardiac calcium scan--it's a breeze.  I'm glad you got good news about your thyroid.

ALL CLEAR, Ladies:-)  

Sharon, mine was creeping up as well, then down a few points, then back up again, directly in relation to my weight.  My primary finally put me on Prevastatin, 40mg.   Bloodwork was good in January, no side effects that I could directly attribute to that.    Good luck:-)

Sorry, I forgot to thank you all for your kind thoughts and condolence's for my cousin, her passing has hit us all very hard as you can imagine and relating to Elaine's post a few weeks ago  about Survivors guilt I really feel so thankful to still be here but sad she isn't of course and feel I want to live for her as well as myself and make every day count!

They just took my Mom to the OR.  She's having hip replacement surgery today.  Please keep her in your thoughts.  She's not in great physical shape to begin with, so it will most likely be a challenging few weeks.
