VIN 111

I was diagnosed with VIN 3 and have gone through two surgeries.  After my wide local excision, my stitches did not hold.  Can anyone tell me how long it takes to heal since there are no stitches to pull this area together.  My incision in near my bottom.  My doctor does not seem concerned and I am terrified.

Brain Cancer Cavernous Sinus Squamous Cell

I recently got good news.  On July 3, 2019 I had a crainiatomy at Baylor in Huston Texas.  On December 14. 2019 i finished my 9th Chemo Treatment and 33rd Radiation treatment.  On Jan 24, 2020 I had an MRI that showed the tumor substantially, if not completely gone.  In February 2020 I will be going for a pet scan to see if any cancer remains anywhere in my body.

Hey everyone out there,

My Story

Hello, my name is Jared  I first was diagnostic with brain cancer after a seizure a little over a year ago and had a craniotomy where 20% was removed. Not all because I could be left paralyzed. I then completed 6 weeks of intense chemo/radiation and UofL Brown Cancer Center in Louisville Kentucky. I tried working this past 6 months to a year but right after the treatment I had many Grand Mal seizures and I even got denied for disability. I am struggling so bad right now yto even survive to live. I have $0 and just started back treatment again this time at Baptist Health in Paducah, KY.

Large diffuse B. Cell lymphoma

My 88 year old Mom was diagnosed on January 6, 2020.  She went to her ENT because of dizzy spells and thought there was a inner ear infection,   A MRI was performed and a suspicious mass behind her left ear was discovered.  After a Cat scan she had a biopsy that confirmed cancer.  A week later she had a PET scan and several other masses were found in her stomach, axcillary, hip and possible liver involvement.  Her oncologist said it was stage 4.   I'm devastated for both my parents to deal with this in their golden years.   She had a port placed today and is to start chemo next week.

My story

Life was perfect for me as 2017 darned.  Both my husband and I were retired, allowing us to travel where and when we wanted   i could est what I liked, drink wine with my meals and even enjoy a cocktail when I wanted.  I walked 10 miles a day and could gilf and ride my bike.

Endometrial cancer patient

I'm not familiar with how this works yet...is a Blog entry the same as a "post?"  Thanks.  I had complete hysterectomy im Jan 2019, then Carbo/Taxol chemo for six treatments followed by pelvic radiation for 28 treatments.  First CT scan was clear.  Second scan shows cancer on adrenal gland.  Starting on DOXIL chemo next week.  Very scared.  Anyone with similar experience?  Thank you.

Hi There

I just had my first MRI after 15 weeks and there is no evidence of the tumour but the mesorectal nodes have not disappeared- just shrunk bu 50%  Does that mean I need  the APR surgery?

Anyone know?
