I am one of those singular posters who does not return. I was diagnosed with MCL on 12/23/11. I completed my fouth cycle on the 13th of April and the Pet scan showed no sign of the cancer. Still feeling pretty lousy from last weeks treatment. I was drawn to this site like that moth Jim described to a flame. So confused and hurt and scared. I have been back almost every night since then and have read every post and started and discarded almost as many. I have learned alot about people here, myself and my desease. What I have learned.
That without the intervention of a speeding bus I will die of MCL. That some time in the next 10 years or so I will relapse and go through this treatment again possibly adding stem cell. I know that folks here are much better at helping others and have more empathy and knowledge than I do. I know that I owe a big Thankyou!! to everyone who has posted in the last few months. I gained something from everyone. I've learned that I may not be able to stay away. I will not be posting however, at this point in my life lurking here is all I can manage. I know that my job is to collect and have as many good times as I can. I will. I also know that if your fingers stink...quit smelling them.
Thanks again to all...All my love. Chuck
