Thanks for that Penny. And I do agree so much with Mary on Asprin use as it can do severe damage to the stomach and does have risks involved with regular use of it. I took it years ago as a standard pain killer sometimes for sore heads etc and years later ended up in hospital with a stomach ulcer that burst. Was not nice to say the least and I still have to take medication now to keep it in check even after all of these years.
Your point about sharing this information with our oncologists is important. There is a risk of irritation to the stomach for some patients who take daily aspirin, and when we are in treatment it is always necessary to let doctors know what pills we are taking in case they interact with treatment.
