Just begun

My name is Duane. My 81 year old father named Gary, next to me in a recent photo herein, and in magnificent health was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. A needle biopsy revealed an aggressive and nearly pervasive form of cancer in most of his prostate, with less than 5% in attached tissue. Six weeks later, and due to his exceptional overall health, he had a prostatectomy today. MD Anderson Houston, even robotic, the best in the business. He was in surgery for more than six hours.

My journey..

I started feeling weak in the afternoon work and thought I was just getting old. I was feeling a little constipated so I started using Metamucil and other laxatives, thinking I was getting old. Summer 2015.

I called my doctor and got an appointment to see what was going on. He indicated there was a large mass in my rectum and set me up to see a Gastroenterologist. He pressed on the tumor and produced blood, he said that means cancer. He then set me up for a Colonoscopy and to take a piece to check for cancer. I came back negative.

Where does God Live?

Oh, I know he lives in our hearts but that isn't good enough for me right now. I want to find someplace that I can feel close to him because I need to ask him to help the researchers to find a cure for cancer. I need to ask him to let me stay on this earth to see my beautiful daughter come into her own happiness. I need to beg him to cure me of cancer. Three cancers in one body is enough! I need to ask him what he plans for me now? 

Triple Negative Breast Cancer 2nd Recurrence w/Metastasis to Sternum

I am currently Stage 4 and in treatment for a recurrence of breast cancer with metastasis to sternum. My last chemo is 6/9/17 and curious if anyone else has been diagnosed with this and what were your next steps after chemo. 

Springing into action

I told the doctor that I would give the chemo a try. The appointment for the port placement and the chemo is set for next week.  I will try. My daughter is relieved and I am trying to get on board with it. I am still waiting to hear the results of the echo to know if this tired old heart is ok for chemo again. I have much more fear this time than I did 6 years ago for chemo for an unrelated cancer.  Dear God, give me strength.

Bumpy ride 2 weeks post Radical Nephrectomy

Hello all...well just when I thought I was feeling better and more energetic 10 days post surgery my energy level plummeted and the day that I went for my 2 week follow-up, reported having a weird deep pain at my right side.  I can describe the pain as trapped air...everytime I breathed i would feel the stab of pain.  My Urologist didnt seem concerned so I let it go to...maybe still healing I thought.  Well he then proceeded to talk about how challenging my surgery was and he was concerned with the amount of growth since the CT scan.
