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.

imageAlicia - Bladder Irritation  Today was day 13 of radiation.  I am doing great aside from low plateletes and some bladder issues.  The pain is like a UTI.  Burning, need to pee. hurts to pee.  Nothing helps and I forgot not to take Advil.  Drinking lots of water, cranberry juice, taking AVO.  Urinalysis is showing no signs of bacteria or blood so far.  They took another today, but he wants to swab my urethra to see if we can determine the cause or at … more…

imageMichele - Don't Wake Me  Life has been such a whirl wind lately. I feel like taking care of myself, in all my “long term side effect” glory, has become a full-time job in itself. I have been in some type of physical therapy since August of 2017. That alone sounds like enough for anybody, but as you know I have been dealing with sciatica, hip problems, digestive issues and girl trouble that I don’t even want to delve into right now, plus this pesky area that … more…

imageAlicia - Requesting Input  Okay, can we talk vaginal stenosis?  I have not been on this site long enough to see a lot on this side effect, but I have talked to enough people who consider it a major long term problem that I am wondering if there is something I can be doing now during treatment.

imageSabina - Back from the Doctor  He said he wants a biopsy. Whatever it is .. it has grown and he wants to find out... He mentioned if it is a carcinoid whether cancer or not it has to come out because 25% turn into cancer and you would have a chance of metasisis.  He said where it is he would have to take my upper or lower lung... I went to this appointment by myself and I swear I had bad vibes going in.. Even … more…

imageSabina - Keep me in prayers this morning please  Hi Everyone! I went and had my CT on my lungs last week. I go today and find out if this lymph node has grown. I guess it had grown to the point where they usually biopsy but wanted to wait 3 months to see if its growing more . He said it was in a bad place. It would be that  they had to put an ultra sound on the scope to find where it is...  He also said … more…
