Re: Covid 19 vaccine

I am planning on getting the shot today (Sinopharm is available in my country). Dad starts Chemo in 1-2 weeks and while he may not be able to get it (Oncologist would push back chemo if he did), i feel I owe it to him to be protected while around him and not carry a virus when i am with him.

Re: Lung Thingy

Thank you everyone for the replies. Things a bit crazy at home so didn't get a chance to log on earlier. Two oncologists (Same hospital, Primary + another Onc friend my dad made during his time admitted last year) looked at the scans again and said no action necessary at this point, it all seems sta...

Other ones (no # given but termed tiny) “minimally” increased. Overall impression “stable disease”. The same nodules were ...

Re: Not tolerating Xeloda. Are there any options?

Re: PET CT Small Nodules

Report in today, metabolically inactive across the lungs.

It was a full body scan and nothing unusual noted otherwise.

Re: PET CT Small Nodules

He's had the test. Results in 2 days. Need a collective prayer please.

I'm someone who struggles with a lot of anxiety and I've been having a really hard time lately with work stress and a baby on the way.

Thought writing this out and putting it out in the universe may help
