Re: Second primary cancer

I agree with that! Recurances are much more difficult. It is weird though that I am getting cancers that usually occur in older people.

Re: Second primary cancer

Thanks everyone for replying! I'm sorry we're in the same boat. I do have a lot of cancer in my family. My dad had NSC lung and my mom had stage 2 breast cancer. I think there should be a one cancer per person maximum.

Re: New stomach primary

I'm so sorry! It's beyond comprehension how this can happen. I'm in the same boat and completely taken aback by the experience. Hugs for healing!

Second primary cancer

Hi all,
I've been pretty quiet for the past 2 years, but I was recently diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma of the left breast after a routine mammogram and follow up biopsy. It's small, just 1.3 cm, but 2 primaries in 3 years is beyond comprehension. Any one else experience 2 primary cancers?

Re: Xeloda joint and muscle pain/arthritis

Hi there, I had mild osteoarthritis before my treatment and now it's much worse. I've also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'm treating both with yoga and by taking advantage of the new law passed in Ohio regarding medical cannabis. I notice symptoms most when I'm sedentary for too long.

Re: Has anyone heard of schools helping out if you have to move out of state for a month or so?

Dear Nic, Your child's school should be able to meet your family's needs. I was too lazy to check out what state you live in, but here in Ohio we will do whatever it takes for a child to be educated when there is a family illness or a child's illness. We often use Skype at our School District to hel...
