I am new to this forum and am searching for some help, confirmation , validation, something. I am 12 months post surgery where I lost a kidney to RCC. This is my second time around with cancer, the first was a rare sarcoma on my leg, that was almost 7 years ago. Anyway, I've noticed that I am hyper sensitive to situations or stories of people who survived/fighting cancer. If I see story on TV about someone fighting cancer, I become overwhelmed with emotion and almost have to walk away as the feelings are just touch to deal with. Although a very loving father, no one would describe me as a emotional sappy type, but since being diagnosed with RCC, exposure to people's struggles with cancer, completely overwhelm me? So is this normal in your experience, has anyone had similar reactions/experiences or do I need a sofa and medication?
