Synovial sarcoma

I was nineteen when I found out I had synovial sarcoma. I had a mass on the side of my left foot. My doctor said that it was most likley a cyst. When the surgery came he said that it was cancerous. I spent three long months waiting to figure out what is was. I was so upset that my grades slipped and I flunked out of college. When it was determined that it was synovial sarcoma I had to have two more surgeries before I was declared to be free of cancer. 

Dad Fighting Stage4 lung cancer

2 weeks ago, after fighting a cough and having some trouble breathing, my dad went into the ER. After a CT scan he was told he had a mass in his lung. He then had a biopsy which came back positive for adenocarcinoma. We then found out it was stage 4 following a PET scan.  No treatment has been started yet as they are waiting for more results from the CT scan to see what kind of chemo to give him. In the meantime he is getting weaker and weaker, he cannot even stand anymore, even with oxygen. I am afraid he isn't going to make it even a few more days.

So Scared

My names is Sherilyn and I am a 47 year old mother of two beautiful teenage girls. I do not smoke, I used to enjoy my couple of glasses of wine some evenings while winding down.  I used to play squash regularly, I'd run on average of 20 km a week.  I'd lift weights and keep my mind and body active.  My journey has just started and I am so scared.  I had gone to my family GP here in Ottawa, ON Canada a few months back as I was experiencing fatigue, night sweats, back pain, anxiety and heavier than normal menstrual bleeding.

Ampullary Cancer

I was diagnosed with Ampullary Cancer in March/2010.  I underwent the Whipple procedure followed by 6 months of chemotherapy.  I am presently approaching my 6th year post Whipple.  Every once in a while, I will experience a mild case of pancreatitis.  I have never been hospitalized for it.  I do take Creon with meals.  Sometimes, I do have foods that do not agree with me and it is usually something sweet.

My diagnosis was a poorly differentiated  Signet Ring Cell adenocarcinoma of the Ampulla of Vater.  Tumor was identified as T4, N1, M0,  stage 3 .

Game Changer

Hello all, I'm new to the site and thought I'd add my two cents worth. I am two weeks removed from 9weeks of radiation therapy And an now beginning to deal with the side affects. Let me make it clear from the outset that these conditions is a small price to pay considering the alternative. Loose bowels, difficulty passing urine, shortness of breath and constantly disrupted sleep are the challengs for me now. I titled this blog game changer because Im a personal trainer and this has knocked me completely off my game.
