Questions on Your Cancer Diagnosis?

Do you have a quick question on how to deal with some part of your cancer diagnosis? Post your questions here in the community and someone has probably gone through it already and is happy to help. There are so many kind people who want to make it easier for the next cancer warrior going through this tough time.

Why Share Your Story?

Journaling about your battle with cancer is a great way to relieve stress. We can let go of some things after writing them down. Also, I found it helpful to keep track of what treatments and doctors I saw and on what dates.

As a bonus, it helps someone else to read what you are going through. And it feels good to help people.

What is Your Cancer Story?

Everyones path is a little bit different but by sharing your story someone else may benefit from knowing they are not alone in this path.

imageSterling - I'm alright  Despite all my whining, I seem to be doing OK now.  My weight is back to where it was and I am living on the higher dosage of Synthroid (200 mcg).  I guess the tests were right and I was a bit low. Just saw my endocrinologist.  My TSH is up a bit ...but still within reason (1.7).  I can't explain why the same dosage that I was on is now not producing the low TSH and symptoms that it was, but I … more…

I was very ill due to the treatment, which  started the first day of the coronoa lock down in Holland.

imageRachelle - So this is happening..  So as Thursday approaches rather quickly, so does this realization that I have no biopsy results... a history of pulmonary sarcoidosis. A lack of doctors with any knowledge of sarcoidosis at all, a still unidentifiable spot on my t12 thoracic spine ( I say this as they are calling it a "hemangioma" only because that is what it is claimed to be by some moron radiologist who reads images so therefore it must be true) and the new recurrence which … more…
