Re: newbie

Hi dh, I've been looking for you as we hadn't heard how you got on Tuesday. I see there's another hurdle in the way for you, such a crappy disease. Does your treatment plan change ? I'll be with you all the way Lisa x

DH, stay strong. It is terrible time when we hear about metastatic disease but with the help of our little community, our doctors, our faith we manage to support each other, stay sane and dare I say enjoy life. 

Best wishes and fellow suffer hugs.

Hi dh,

Really sorry that you have received this news. However try to stay positive. I was diagnosed with lung Mets 2 and a half years ago and they have remained relatively stable in that time. I was told I had Mets to liver in Dec and have been having chemo which has reduced these.

Look for stories of inspiration when you are feeling low. This helps me. There is a lady being treated in Manchester who was DX with liver Mets in 2005 when she was 27. She is still well today. And there are many others. New treatments are coming out all the time so try to research as much as you can so that you know what questions to ask when you see the one etc.

Take care. Love Sheila. Xx

My heart goes out to you. There are many people here who are willing to listen and help you. You're not alone so feel free to say whatever you like. Stay strong - there are many inspiration stories which give us all hope. The shock I find is the hardest to deal with. Each new thing is so scary.
Have you been told if your treatment is going to change? Reach out to as many people as you can for help and support. Take care xxxx

I am sorry to read of you're recent diagnosis.  I'm sure some of the other users will be a long soon to offer you their experiences and support.  

 

In the meantime if you need to talk things through do give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000.  Here you can share your feelings and concerns with someone who will offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practical information.  Lines are open Monday to Friday 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

Evening ladies, I hope there is room for a little one in here? I was diagnosed in Feb and am half way through fec-t. Today I have been told I have liver mets. Although I kind of new it was coming I'm still all over the place, I have a small baby and a 5 yr old.
Any advice welcomed xxx
