Thanks again for all your advice and comments, I can't believe how this blog has calmed me down and reassured me that I can and will get through this ok. It's all because of your knowledge and caring attitudes on here that is helping me and others through. Sash you are so right when you say they are the experts, but I think you all who have walked the walk are just as important to us who are just starting our journey.
Victor, Joe is right on when he says you are a good communicator. Joe my doctor is very aggressive and I like you do appreciate aggressive doctors. I want whatever works to cure me of this awful disease I am trying to eat healthy and exercise too. I find it hard to excecise being out in the country in the winter. I asked and got the WII Fit for Christmas and find it really helpful when the weather here is to cold to be out in. I am normally an outside person, but with my equilibrium being off, my family won’t let me go out by myself.
I will take the meds Dr. Seikaly and the others prescribe. Rich I am not to worried about the brain tumour at this point, but I am going to ask them if I can get radiation on it… I would rather it not be there. Thanks Hondo for the advice on keeping busy and keeping cancer off my mind, that’s exactly what I have done so far this holiday season and it is working, I am having a very nice Christmas/New year this year.
Can any of you tell me if there is a certain amount of time that is the norm for healing after surgery, so far I am hearing anywhere between 3 and 7 weeks before starting treatment. Just trying to see what my timeline for all this will be, as I will take a leave of absence from work.
Anyhow that you all for being here for us who appreciate your words, thay are so important!!! You are all in my prayers. I am hoping and praying that with the New Year and New Decade here shortly that there will be a cure for cancer, we are getting closer, but it’s not yet here!
Happy New Year Love Val
