Thanks Nicky, it's nice to be recognised! I used to post on here all the time but I'd been away so long I couldn't remember my log in! looking forward to catching up with friends old and new. At least there is a bit of silver lining when there's progression...
Hi Jacksy, welcome home! Good to see you on here again and I'm sure you will get any support you need as and when your treatment changes. As to newbies, it is a very frightening time, we all remember it only too well but keep coming back to ask question, get support, or just have a rant - we've all done it!
so sorry to hear your news. I just wanted to share a bit of hope - I've been going for 8 years with liver mets. Have had radio frequency ablation a few times (a needle put into tumour and heats it by radio waves to cauterise the tumour) and surgery 3 years ago. My liver is fine at the moment. I haven't been on the forums in recent years as I've been getting on with life, working, etc.
all the best with your treatment. It always feels better once treatment starts and they're doing something.
keep your chin up
Hi - so sorry to hear you are joining us. You aren't alone - there are so many positive and inspiring people on this forum who have so much wisdom that it is easy to forget how scary this is and how lonely it can feel. I was diagnosed with secondaries 2 years ago and have had ups and quite a few downs - lots of treatment (some of which works and some of which doesn't) and I have read loads of advice and information about all of it on here. I haven't posted much - but it all the posts have helped and it is practical, informed and helpful. Unlike most of the googling you can do on various websites. Living with secondaries is a bit of a scary roller coaster ride - but there are lots of things to try, loads of things that work for different people and people who have learned to live full, happy (occasionally interrupted by this) lives for years. Hope is what we live on.
Sending you love and hugs
Thank you I feel a lot better knowing people are living a long time I just feel like I've gone back to the beginning I was only diagnosed in Feb just finishing my treatment this week and they found it now I need to start chemo again it's awful just hope there light at the end of the tunnel x x x
I agree with wolfie and everything she has said she has helped to lift my spirits up. I am sorry you have had to join us but you will find lots of ladies who can help you with your mets. I do not have the same as you but we are nearly all in the same situation some days will be dark but we are all here to try and help one another. Join in with the daft goings on at the Cyber Cafe it's a place we can get away from the C word sometimes it is good to be silly. Try not to be too frighten there are many treatments that can help and some women have lived for years.
Best wishes with your new journey xxx
