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.

imageUnsure - Knew I was in trouble  Yeah, I knew I was in trouble when I did my virtual follow up to my latest scan. I was supposed to be seeing my oncologist's PA, but my oncologist came on instead. Just as a refresher, last June I was posting about an apparent set of false alarms. A PET done after the 1st set of scans that showed new abnormalities came back with nothing glowing brighter than a 2.8, apparent false alarm. Then after the next set that … more…

imageSUSAN - Vertigo, balance issues, decrease in hearing  Has anyone experienced balance issues and loss of hearing post AC treatment? I've had issues with my balance since my first chemo treatment. The "wobbling" continued months after I finished treatment. When I asked oncologist, PCP, and CRS all said "give it time". Additionally, for 4 months my ears felt pressurized (like when you're on an airplane), and they crackled but wouldn't open. It sounded like I was talking with my nose plugged. Eventually they cleared but my hearing just isn't the same. Now … more…
