Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Okay, guys...here we go. It's my turn next week to get through my check-ups. It's been 2 years since surgery and just over 1.5 years since chemo ended. I feel great, no physical worries, but anxious none-the-less. You just never know with cancer!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

hey, i had blood before and it was nothing. it actually takes time for aspirin even low doses to completely leave your system and lessen the side effects. i doubt it is anything related to your diagnosis, likely just a hemi. hang in there!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

so i asked my doctor and he said cancer itself does not hurt...only if it is obstructing or has impinged a nerve. believe it may be your liver healing. it's an amazing organ.

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

I was thinking if you today and how you were getting along. My first scan was a bit nerve wracking, but fortunately I got through it, as you will.

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

It took me about 21 days to heal completely once removed. It's been about 7 months since removal and I can still feel the void if you will, in the area where it was initially inserted.
