Hi, this is my first post.
I first discovered a swollen lymph node in my neck a few months ago. The dr first tried antibiotics. When that didn't work I was sent for a ct scan. They removed the node and when the pathology report came back I was diagnosed with large b cell lymphoma. i am now having r-chop chemo. Every three weeks for six sessions. My first treatment was Monday April 15th. On the 9th day I hit a really tired spell. Went to the dr for my 10 day ck and my white cell count was real low. I was told to stay homes and away from anyone who may be sick. Take my temp twice a day.
In March of 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, at the age of 54. I am recently single and am terrified To go thru this alone. I have children, family and friends by my side but its not the same as a partner. I cry myself to sleep almost every night. I try to be strong and plan on fighting this the best I can. Am trying to get myself healthy (besides the cancer) By eating healthy, drinking lots of fluids and getting plenty of rest. Some days are good and some days are bad.
I was born in England in 1954 and moved to Monaco in 1977. I met the love of my life over here and married in 1984. Our daughter was born in 1986.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer for the second time. Unlike the first time, when he got surgery and chemotherapy to remove thaw cancer and the tumor, he is refusing treatment. I have come to understand an accept this decision. Now I just want to make life easier for him just a little. I am underage so there is not much I can do. But apart from telling him that I love him what can I do? I tell him that I love him and he pushes me away. He blames me if I'm in the room and something goes wrong.
I am currently a 16 year Breast cancer survivor I took the attitude when I was told I had breast cancer that you take the cards you are dealt in life and that you can't change your life cards like you can a poker hand what that means is if you are playing poker and you want to win the pot in the middle of the table you can swap your cards you have to win the pot in the middle you can't change your life cards like you can a poker hand if I can beat cancer you can too.
