I'm very happy to be here but I'm very frustrated with life right now. I have 3 beautiful children, 11, 3 & 2 years old. A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer and it blind sided me. I went to the ER because I kept vomiting and the last thing I thought it could be was any kind of cancer. I'm trying to stay strong but I get sad a lot. I have not started any treatments as of yet however while in the hospital surgery was performed but the Dr said he could not remove it. The strange thing about that is right after surgery the surgeon said he couldn't remove "all" of it, then the next day he said he couldn't remove "any" of it.
I am going to a different cancer clinic next week for a 2nd opinion before I begin any treatments. To all others out there with cancer, lets try to stay strong and no matter what we have to put ourselves first at this time to help us make it through this. Do what you need to do and don't be afraid or feel like a burden. Ask friends & family to help you w/ whatever you need help with. Call around and find out if you qualify for pca or nurses to come to your home to help you.
Just do what it takes to take care of yourself as I am and stay strong ladies & gentlemen. I am kind of scared but not scared enough to give up. Any support and/or resources would be greatly appreciated.
