Hi, I'm sorry for the reasons you are here, as none of us truly want to be a part of this group, as caring and supportive as it is. I can understand your concern and worry, as it's all a very scary potential. I would be willing to guess that 100%of the persons on here have had at least a couple of the symptoms you describe, but I'd also wager that the are tons of folks out there that have had those symptoms and were not dx with any sort of cancer. Honestly, the waiting and wondering is some of the worst of it, so I will hope and pray that your tests go well. And just remember, if they turn out to be less than desirable, you have a lot of support here, many good people with a wealth of knowledge, and as difficult as it might be to believe, you'll be OK. Good luck and God bless!
By the glory, by the grace, by the strength of God, I will be made whole.
