I was told i had cancer May 1st 2014. gleason score 9, stage 3. May 29th 2014, i had a radical prostate surgery, they removed almost everything my prostate at that time was aprox. 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches it had grown faster then thought. My recovery was great, my wife and I went on an Alaska cruise our first cruise ever it was great. When we got back i started hormone therapy along with 8 weeks of radations, seem to go well. After radaition Iam now becoming inconientent and its getting worst.
Has any done anything with more natural treatments for anal cancer? Or is chemo/ radiation the only ticket
I've been cancer free now for two year, but the plumbing no longer works anywhere near it was before surgery & radiation. Can't see how I can try to have a relationship with a woman. and I do very much love women. Feel very lonely sometimes.
I had my first mamogram today since surgery and treatment. I am cleared for 6 months! I did it!
PULMONARY REHAB WHERE IT TOOK PLACE
STRANGERS AT FIRST UNTIL WE EMBRACED
JUST BEING A PATIENT WAS AN OVERSIGHT
FRIENDSHIP DEEPENED WITH MUCH DELIGHT
A TREADMILL TO WALK A BICYCLE TO RIDE
GIVES YOU STRENGTH FOR YOU TO SURVIVE
LEARN TO COPE WITH SPECIAL TECHNIQUES
FEELINGS OF ACCOMPLISHMENT SO UNIQUE
MORE THAN A PROGRAM A BOND SO STRONG
TIES TO EACH OTHER WILL BE LIFELONG
PROBLEMS AND STRUGGLES SEEM FORLORN
BUT OUR UNITED CIRCLE CAN'T BE TORN
Hi guys, I'm new to all of this but I am so glad I found this site. I am 45 years old and.I have stage 3 anal.cancer. I have 4 kids and 4 grandchildren. I am about to begin week 5 and my second go around with the chemo bag. I am.terrified of what's ccoming next...
Next month will mark my first follow-up mammogram since I had completed active treatment for breast cancer. In the case of lumpectomy, mammograms are recommended about six months after finishing radiation: "Radiation can cause some changes in the breast tissue and skin. This 6-month mammogram will become the new 'standard' against which future mammograms of the remaining breast tissue are compared."
I need to find a support group in the Waco, TX area. Suggestions?
My husband was a sweet caring wonderful man when we married. Cancer has changed all that.
He is now very angry and criticizes me all the time. He doesn't want to do anything w me but is gone all the time bowling, playing pool and gambling at the casino.When he comes home all he does is complain.
