The legal status of anabolic steroids varies from country to country. In the ., anabolic steroids are listed as Schedule III controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act , which makes the possession of such substances without a prescription a federal crime punishable by up to seven years in prison. [39] In Canada, anabolic steroids and their derivatives are part of the Controlled drugs and substances act and are Schedule IV substances, meaning that it is illegal to obtain or sell them without a prescription. However, possession is not punishable, a consequence reserved for schedule I, II or III substances. Those guilty of buying or selling anabolic steroids in Canada can be imprisoned for up to 18 months. Importing or exporting anabolic steroids also carry similar penalties.

Thanks all of you, that was what I was thinking. I couldn't see ALL of it being the steroids or chemo. I do think,like txtrish said, the fog and concentration is chemo brain, but the balance and vertigo are something else. The heart valve replacement I had is doing very well(will get a EKG and ultra-sound in Sept. since it will be three years)and no neuropathy due to diabetis. I am checked every three months with a A1C and am controled with one pill a day and diet. So that leaves needing to see the neurologist like you said. The vertigo is really a crazy feeling and I was bruised for weeks. Dr's saw the brusing and said "that goes with the territory! Go figure! Thanks to all of you again for the help! Best, debrajo

Surgery:   Surgical removal remains the best option in providing a cure for certain types of cancer in cases where a solitary tumor is present with no associated metastasis. During removal the surgeon will strive to obtain 3 cm margins in all directions of the tumor. This results in a large incision in relationship to the size of the tumor removed. In general the perimeter of the tumor contains the most aggressive cells, as they are the ones responsible for spreading the cancer to associated healthy tissues and increasing its size. To ensure that clean margins are obtained all removed masses should be submitted for histopathology. In cases where cancer cells are still present along the periphery, another surgery should be performed promptly or radiation or chemotherapy therapy should be instituted to reduce its ability to spread. In cases where masses do return they often are more aggressive than the initial tumor because as stated above the more aggressive cells at the periphery are what were left behind.
