    Thanks Sue!

    I always say a rhat a problem only becomes a problem if you let it stop you from living the life you want to live. And that is most of the time your decision and your attitude. 

    All the best,

    Laz

    Good reads, heartaching, I

    Good reads, heartaching, I wish I'd read them before the onc called me. Oh well, my good news is always tempered by others plights since Cindy was diagnosed. Reminds me of Kipling's "If".  "If you, can meet with triumph and disaster....And treat those two imposters just the same". I particularly like the last stanza, "If you can fill the unforgiving minute....With sixty seconds worth of distance run....Your's is the Earth, and everything that's in it....And which is more--You'll be a man, my son."  Thank's Pop..........................................Dave

    On The Second One

    When I tell my patients that I had just finished chemo or had my second surgery, the look in their eyes changes.  "Oh, you get it." So in a weird way, it is a "good" thing which has come out of having cancer.

    It is good to see the perspective of Cancer patients from other countries. This one is from Japan.

    My Primary Care Physician is a cancer survivor

    She's been especially helpful, as she "gets" it.  She also had an incisional hernia repaired, and warned me that it really is a painful recovery.

    So So True

    That was a great artical and very true.  You don't really get it unless you have lived it and this is something you would not want anyone else to live.

    Wales, United Kingdom

    How one man fought to get one drug available in Wales.

    Interesting how the drug is available in England, yet not in Wales. A demarcation line between possible life and death.

    Cancer surgery backed up in England

    Wating is hard enough as it is. Not being able to even be scheduled for surgery must be truly frightening.

    How do we tell our children?

    I hope I made the right decision, being honest. Of course, my boys are adults, but still have a close relationship with me because they are not yet married.

    New blood test looks promising

    http://www.bbc.com/news/health-39658680

    A new blood tests looks promising. It says it detects recurrance a year before scans or x-rays can pick it up.  

    Here's hoping for continued progress.

    So interesting

    Just diagnosed with recurrent liver metastisas. Doc immediately said that new blood test dna360 was much more sensitive than cea Test.  Said that pre and post op levels would determine whether adjuvant chemo was necessary. Don't know about pre- diagnosi.

    Thanks for the info.

     

    Best,
