what are Cathy's medical reasons for having to be on BB?
« on: July 25, 2010, 03:08:58 PM »
Cathy has mentioned that she needs to stay in the Big Brother House for personal and medical reasons.  Anyone know why she is still taking so much medication if her cancer was when she was 28?  I also have to wonder how all the stress of this game is going to play out in her system, but I guess she does have a high stress job at home.  She is a complete mystery to me.  I think I have her figured out and find I am back at square one.

Kathy told Andrew yesterday that she has high cholesterol and takes medication for that as well. I also wonder what it is that is so important for her to stay in the house. She's not a devious person so whatever it is must be more than just a fabrication or ploy. She hasn't made a big deal out of it unlike Matt who is lying through his teeth.

Doesn't seem to make any sense at all.

Ovarian...when she was 28.

Thanks for the answer....  I hope they caught it early.  Our chances of living five years after being diagnosed is only about 25%....   There is no 'maintenance' drug for ovarian ca.....but she can fight it by eating right and exercising.....
