4 weeks ago I had just finished my 9th treatment of Taxol and Herceptin drug. 3 days later I could not breath. So I called the sick line and the doctor on call sent me down to the ER to get a CT scan, but they did xrays instead and said I had pneumonia in my left lower lung. They admitted me into the hospital and start an IV of antibiotics. They kept me for 2 days and sent me home with 10 day supply of antibiotics and to drink plenty of fluids. With in 3 days later my symptoms were getting worst, my legs and feet swelled up like baloons and it was very diffuclt to breath.
MY son was diagnosed last march 2012 with A cancerous Stage 3 brain Tumor, 3 days after the operated on him.
They than put him on chemotherepy for 4 months,this seemed to do nothing in August of 2012 they operated again on him,
this time the operation took longer and he almost hemeraged and took alot more for him to recover from.
They have since than ut him thru a Radiation treatment until the end of December 2012,that seemed to give us the only positive
out come in a year.They told us the Tumour had shrunk slightly and that it was inactive.

My 41 year old son has been battling cancer for a year. Started in
brain, went to liver, stomach and lungs. Has had 5 Sir Sphere treatments.
They are telling us that it is killing the tumors. He is also taking chemo, but
has had to stop because of pneumonia. His major thing right now is his balance
is terrible and he falls frequently. Scheduled for a 6th SIR Sphere treatment the
15th. Just praying a lot right now.
Second scan and labs reports - situation less clear. Meticulous report by a different radiologist couched in unfamiliar terms. No indications of tumor size or necrosis and no reference to enhancement. Taken together with increase in pain, amounts to a less good evaluation than we had hoped for.
I FOUND OUT THAT I WAS REALY SICK AT THE AGE OF 28 YEARS OF AGE THAT I HAD NOT 1 BUT 3 CANCERS THAT WHERE INVADING MY BOADY
I FEALT UNSHORE ABOUT ALL OF WHAT WAS GOING ON I WAS IN SHOCK I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE DOTOR MENT BY THEY WHERE GOING TO CUT ME
I am 33 years old and living with my mother while she is being treated for Hodgkins lymphoma. She survived non-Hodgkins 20 years ago, but is in a considerably worse condition this time around. Friends and family suggested that I reach out in some way or another and talk to people that may have gone through a similar situation. Firstly, I would do anything for my mother, we have always been close. I have been covering all her household expenses for the past year. Although I have a great career, I'm aware that my emotional state has suffered in the process.

Was diagnosed with Stage 4/Grade 1 Follicular NHL back in August 2011. I have a tumour (in my bicep) 3cm / 2.5 cm that is new since November that was biopsied and confirmed to be Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma....another type of Lymphoma. I have quite a bit of abdominal pain (almost daily) however, the largest node in my abdomen sits at around 3.4 cm. I have many enlarged nodes around my bowel loops and some between my abdominal cavity and spine. I am currently sitting in "Watch and Wait"or "Watch and Worry" and definitely have evidence of disease progression.<
My husband was diagnosed with Myelofribrosis a year and a half ago. We were so shocked, but he had not been feeling well for a long time. Our family doctor said there was nothing wrong with him. It was so upsetting to know in your heart there is something going on with him and the family doctor just ignored all his symptoms. His energy level was so low, tired all the time.
