Here are some FAQ to help you use the new chat. 

Q. How do I send a chat message?

Enter your message into the text box at the bottom of the chat area and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

 <*** src="/sites/default/files/u215937/Capture1.PNG" width="716" height="417" />

Q. How do I view the other users currently online?

The column on the right of the chat window will list the other members that are logged in at the top.

At the bottom, you can see the total amount of users logged in.

Q. How do I send a private message?

Click the green dot next to the member’s username you wish to send a private chat

message to. A popup will appear. Type your message in the text box and click 

"Send Private Message".

 

 Q. How do I turn the sound on/off?

You can turn sound notifications on or off by clicking the speaker icon at the bottom of Chatroll.

 

Q. How can I pop-out my chat into another browser window?

Click the Pop-out button on the bottom of the chat to pop it out into another window.

 
Q. Why would I pop-out my chat?

You can pop-out your chat into another window to keep the chat open, even while you browse other windows on the Internet or on the Cancer Survivors Network. Having your chat popped-out lets you keep the conversation going even when you’re doing other tasks online or on your computer.  

Please do not remain inactive/idle in the chat room for a long period of time just so you don’t miss any chat conversation. We now permit members to review past chats any time they wish. You don’t even have to have been logged on to CSN when the chats took place. Just click on the chat link to open the chat window and scroll backwards to find earlier chats. 

Q. How do I use Chatroll on my phone/tablet?

Chatroll is completely HTML-based. It works on all mobile devices. The best way to view Chatroll on a mobile device is to click the Pop-out button on the bottom of the chat. This allows Chatroll to work optimally on mobile devices.

Q. Are there any special rules I need to be aware of to use the chat feature?

The same CSN terms and conditions apply to use of the chat feature. However, please be aware that when you enter chat, your username will appear in chat along with other members who are in the room. You may only wish to see what chat is like and might feel uncomfortable "saying" anything. This is understandable. Nevertheless, if someone greets you, please be courteous and reply. You can explain that you are only curious about how chat works and are having a quick look around. Once you have done that, if you still don't wish to interact, it is best to exit chat. The longer you stay without participating, the more uncomfortable others will become.

Please remember to be respectful of others' health care decisions, opinions, beliefs and faith. Giving advice or attempting to influence another person's health care decisions, opinions, beliefs, and/or faith is prohibited. And, please, keep it clean! Sexual innuendo, profanity, verbal abuse, and similarly offensive behavior is not allowed.

Yes, I felt lost for about six weeks after my diagnosis.  I've recovered somewhat, but it's still iffy.  Thanks for sharing.

i have just begun you are not alone! Great people here. I also have reached the anger stage and over the pitty stage. Makes me angry, why me and mixed with anger not a good mixture. I talk to a lot of different people while at treament and you get frank true answers on it all. You will do fine. I take my I Pad to the treament it works for me and keeps my mind on something else other than Chemo. Great talking to you, post to feel better

Hello friends.....I have been thru 2 years of breast cancer treatment. i am considered cancer free. I should be jumping for joy but that is not the case. I find myself feeling worse then when i was in actual treatment. I have severe panic disorder, agoraphobia and depression. Am I crazy?? What is happening to me? I can barely function.

No your not crazy!  I feel the same way.  I have been stuck in this house for a year & a half. I only go out once or twice a month , when I have to.  I never went out without my husband.  Now I'm really screwed. Last year they shut down my co. 2 weeks later my husband passsed away, 2 months later I lost my mother-n-law & nmy sister. So we also lost 5 pets in the middle of all this.  I wish I had never had that mastectomy.  I just wanted you to know your not the only one that feels that way.  Write any time you want. Sincerely katie

I feel for your emotional pain. However, I suggest that you all try the "Emotional Support" forum, though. You will find very empathetic and kind people there. It's the appropriate place to bring up these issues: http://csn.cancer.org/forum/137

The best to you all.

Hi Doris,

This is my first attempt to chat, so we'll see if I can send a message through to you. A friend of mine who is a cancer survivor says some of her friends pulled away as though her cancer was catching. I've noticed that too. People are funny! Hope you have some friends who will stick it out.

 

What kind of sewing do you enjoy? I love to quilt, but am undergoing chemo and have no energy or ambition. My brother (who is a veterinarian) told me years ago that with chemo, the doctor takes you as close to death as possible and then brings you back, hoping to have killed the cancer. I feel like they're doing a fine job of killing me. I too try to stay positive and choose not to wallow in my fears and self pity.

 

Well, if you receive this, please write back. Regards, Omabi

Hi, does anyone out there have Multiple Sclerosis and Breadt Cancer? I am facing a Mastsectomy, chemo,radiation and then pills. I am concerned about the treatment and an MS relapse. How will the MS respond with the toxins and poisons (chemo & radiation). If anyone has any advice on this I Would appreciate it.

Thank you,

Hi all,

Trying to figure this out...I also have MS ,DCIS (guess I must have a thing for initial s,lol. I had a lumpectomy, & am to start radiation on the 28th. Dr feels I will tolerate it okay...& luckily he agreed w/me about no Hormone therapy. He said seeing as my relapsing/remitting MS is under control ,clean margins & Rads. Should do it. Still scared how my carcass is gonna deal w/fatigue &"sunburn". Patty

My husband betrayed my trust in that he told the people in his office of my diagnosis without my approval or knowledge. one of those people goes to our church and now it is circulating there. I am devastated, hurt, feeling betrayed by the one person I thought I could trust. Angry that I my privacy has been violated. It's bad enough that I have to show my boobs to increasing numbers of professionals for the rest of my life.

This particular thread is for technical information regarding the chat room. It is not necessarily for questions and information sought regarding cancer. It is probably better to post in the area of the discussion boards for  your particular type of cancer. Some examples are breast cancer, prostated cancer, etc. There are specific forums for types of cancer that people should be posting in for questions regarding cancer.

Take both breast in my opinion.  They are a pair and if one gets cancer the other one will too.   I have my healthy breasts taken off due to my BRCA 1= genetic mutation.  I had ovarian 3c and did not want to deal with breast cancer.  So, i had them taken off at 56.  No regrets.

Hello DedeChase,

It seems you have found a solution. I am not sure what the limit is, but you can just break it down into reasonable segments. You may also want to post this question on the discussion boards under "rare and other cancers". The chatroom is busier at night.

 

Best regards,

Jeff

Hi,

i'm new here. This is my first time here. I've had it easy from what I've seen but, I don't have any taste and was wondering if it comes back depending on how long the radiation therapy lasted?
