Re: Inserting Port or not

The port just looks like a bump under the skin. The skin grows over the top and when they insert a needle and remove the needle, it closes back up just like when the draw blood from your arm. My port is in my upper left chest. All my clothes cover the area, even my tank tops will cover it. My doctor...

Re: Too many tumors to count... newbie here

On my first visit with my oncologist I asked if we were going for a cure or palliative care. She was honest and said that she didn't know until after we see how my tumor responds to chemo. I asked about what the next steps will be and she said let's get you into remission first. With those words, I ...

Re: New

I'm sorry for the reason you are here. From the moment I heard cancer, it seemed like my life changed. After my first surgery, I was positive that it was done and gone. I was stunned when it bit me again 3 years later. Try to get it in your mind that chemo is your fighting buddy. That is what is get...

Re: granix extreme bone pain

I'm very lucky as my insurance has covered every med 100%. I've just gotten to my halfway point and have gotten some acne. What sucks is I had one on the tip of my nose. I must have scrubbed too hard and now have a tiny scab there. Seems like it takes way longer for things to completely heal due to...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

I had my resection and no lymph node involvement. All margins were clear. I did not do any chemo after. Hindsight is usually 20/20. I am now halfway through chemo and need to start thinking about the next step. My timeline is in my signature. I really don't want to scare you but you should consider...

Re: They found a 12mm sessile polyp

Nurses can't really give information. Whether it be good news or bad.

I am not knowledgeable about areas that I haven't experienced. Hopefully someone will come along to help you.

I just wanted to welcome you and let you know that you are not alone in the worry department.
