    Hi Janet,

    Welcome to the community, I will tag you in our COVID19 information thread as well, there is a lot of useful information there that may answer some of your questions. I have also tagged @LizzyB73 here, Liz is our Specialist Oncology nurse in the community, she may also be able to advise you. Liz also has a specific Oncology discussion, you will find it near the top of the list of discussions.

    I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis, I can imagine this type of cancer to be very uncomfortable and painful. I had not heard of this before. Are you still going through any treatment?

    I hope you are doing well, please feel free to come and chat anytime, everyone here is very friendly and supportive.

    Take care,

    Lou x

    Hi @Janet827

    Thank you for getting in touch. Eye cancer is extremely rare and I so hope that are doing well following treatment last year.

    As you said you had radiotherapy last year you are out of the danger area of being more vulnerable of catching covid.

    Wishing you well for your continued recovery.

    best wishes

    Liz 💕
