Good place for a journal

Around mid week of April 23, 2017, I noticed for the last couple of nights, waking up about every hour because I felt like I can't breathe. And all of a sudden I have this large (golf ball size) soft lump on my neck right out front under my jaw. Boy, this lump just formed in like 3 days, from nothing to current full size. I suspect it's an inflamed lymph node but is there a node there, right out front? I've seen some pictures and nodes are on both sides of the neck just under the jaw bone and none in front.

Cancer Couple

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, we discovered that my wife has stage 4 lymphoma. This happened right in the middle of my own treatment for stage 3 prostate cancer. We had both retired and were in the process of moving to Florida when I had a biopsy that confirmed what I had suspected for a couple years... yes, I have cancer. For me it was a "relief" to finally have a diagnosis after so many negative tests.

a year in

The last couple of months have been increasingly stressful, difficult, painful..and questioning.

How it began...

My husband was having GI issues (couln't eat, couldn't drink, losing weight, pale, clammy, etc) and after seeing several Dr's they told him; 
His gallbladder needed to come out. They took it out.
He had a hernia, they repaired it.
He needed a colonoscopy. He couldnt do it because he was vomiting all the pre liquid up.
He needed his appendix out....

My Cancer Story

My name is Kristen Busse. I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with Stage 3B Colon Cancer. A coworker of mine saw that you were having this personal project and she suggested I share my story with you.

 

I am a 2nd grade teacher, I live in Gurnee, and I am wrapping up chemotherapy that I started on November 21, 2016. My last round began yesterday, Monday April 24th!

 

Prior to my diagnosis, I have been concerned about having blood in my stool and my doctor kept telling me it was hemorrhoids. No one expects (at the time) a 25 year old to have colon cancer.

Specialist called today

I went for extensive blood work on April 6 as part of a comprehensive Diabetic check up. I had a followup Doctor's appointment scheduled for May 9th however my Doctor's office called last Friday (April 21st) and moved my appointment up to Thursday the 27th. No explanation. I knew something was up but decided not to worry about it.

Infusion reaction to taxotere second infusion

Thursday I went for my second infusion on TCHP and within2 minutes of receiving taxotere my body reacted, my throat closed and was hard to breathe, lower back pain and chills, blood pressure and heart rate sky rocketed  They immediately stopped the drip and gave me saline and got me stable. I completed CHP.... anyone else have a reaction???
