  • @Joannemartina29, @Lynn20 Hi Joanne, Welcome to the community, I am very sorry to hear about your husband. It sounds as if you and your husband have been through a very distressing time already. How is your husband doing now?  A cancer diagnosis…

  • @Lynn20, @Joannemartina29 Hi Lynn, Joanne, I am very sorry to hear about your husband's diagnoses. You are both very welcome here, it can be really helpful to have contact with others who are in a similar situation.  I am not familiar with this …

  • @Lesley Hi Lesley,  That is wonderful news for you, after all you have been through in recent months. I am so pleased the chemo has been effective. It is so encouraging, I am sure everyone else will be cheering for you too.  You are amazing! Ev…
  • Hi @Pinkpoodle , @RobertA A very warm welcome you, I am so glad you have found our lovely community, I hope you will soon get to know us. Everyone is very friendly and supportive here.  I am so glad for you that treatment so far has been successfu…
  • Hi @diddydi68 Oh, I am pleased for you, I am so glad you managed to get hold of someone who could help you. Will be thinking of you on Tuesday, let me know how it goes. Try not to dwell on things too much until then.  Lou xx
  • Hi @Ange7  I hope that you were able to get all the information you needed before yesterday's operation. I hope that went ahead as planned and was successful for you. Just to let you know we are thinking of you, hope your recovery will be swift an…
  • @RobertA Hi Rob,  I hope you are having a great afternoon, love to see your photos, you will need another holiday to recuperate after this week! That is am amazing sculpture, do you think if someone stuck a finger in it, it would start a collapse…
  • Hi @diddydi68 It may be worth giving the breast care team a call and explain you have been expecting an appointment, as per your surgeon, see if they can see anything in the system with your hospital number.  Did the surgeon say you would need fur…
  • @RobertA, @Anneb Hi Rob, Margy, (morning!) Lovely to hear from you! All that fruit sounds amazing, I have decided to try my hand at making marmalade, would you like to FedEx some of that fruit over to me? Then I could send some back to you in a j…
  • Hi @KitKat That is good news the CT scan showed no further spread.  You have been through so much these last years, I am so sorry to hear of all these diagnoses.  The Royal Marsden is a good hospital I believe, my sister was treated there many yea…
  • @RobertA Hi Rob,  Hahaha! The garden is certainly like that, especially for Mark. He takes care of the trees and shrubs etc, and no sooner has he made it round the garden, he has to start again! It's not his favourite job! One year we had a wasp n…
  • Hi @KitKat I am so very sorry to hear the results came through positive for cancer, it is not surprising you feel the way you do, even though you have been diagnosed previously, it must still seem like a huge shock and unbelievable at the same tim…
  • @PositiveLady10  Hi Barbara,  Sorry I haven't replied sooner, I have been having a few issues posting comments! That is wonderful news to hear the cancer has been successfully removed. Really fantastic news!  I am sorry you had an upsetting day …
  • Good morning , Oh most definitely I think these 'unknown' days waiting for results, scans etc are some of the worst days. Once you have more information and the operation goes ahead, you will feel more in control. That is a good analogy about the …
  • Hi I am glad to hear you will have some assistance after surgery. As Rob has already suggested making contact with the Macmillan Cancer Support Group is a good idea. They can provide very valuable practical help and emotional support too. Don't b…
  • Hi Rob, Haha, yes I remember. My parents used to book the call with the operator to call my grandparents in the USA. Lots of shouting into the receiver back then! Haha! 😄. Lou x
  • I can imagine how expensive it was. It doesn't seem to be cheap to eat out at all these days. We search for coupons etc and voucher codes we could use, otherwise we just couldn't afford it. xx
  • Good morning Vanessa, Oh no, I am so sorry to hear you have been suffering all this time until yesterday, that is just awful for you. I am not surprised you felt so unwell. I am so glad your mum stepped in and called the neighbour on your behalf.…

  • Hi Vanessa, Just wondering how you are feeling now? Have the anti-sickness meds helped at all? I hope things have been a little more bearable for you over the last few days. Lou x

  • Hi Rob, Your weekend sounds very relaxing and pleasant, though sorry to hear about the hot flushes, they can be dismal, even worse in this heat. I hope you have had an enjoyable day working on your new music, I think playing music is relaxing in it…
  • Hi Barbara, Ah, ok. I understand that. I have just started taking it again after having a month off. My oncologist suggested that it see if my symptoms alleviated, but since I did, I have done so much I can't tell. So back on them, and monitoring…
  • Good morning Barbara, It is lovely to hear from you again, I do hope you are recovering well after surgery, I know it is early days still and a lot to adjust to. I have been thinking of you. Definitely take some antihistamine, I have heard a lot …
  • Good morning Andy, I am so pleased for you that the results have come back positive showing an improvement and the treatment is having an effect. That is such good news to hear. Absolutely, you keep on doing what you are doing, remaining positiv…
  • Hi, I am so sorry to hear you are yet again facing chemo for the third time, and then to have such a terrible reaction to it is just awful for you. How are you feeling today? I take it your oncologist will try something different next time? Have …
  • Hi, I am so very sorry to hear about your dad's diagnosis. I do understand how devastated you are. When cancer is diagnosed, there are so many emotions, thoughts and questions that arise, all at once. Many of them terrifying, cancer causes so much …

  • Hi Andy, I think you have had another chemo since we last chatted, and you were scheduled to have a scan as well. I hope that went as planned, and you don't have long to wait for the results. Thinking of you, chat soon, Lou xx
  • Good morning! Well done for making it out to the shops, that is tiring, even if you love shopping. We had to do prom shopping on Saturday, it was very busy, and thankfully we did find an outfit and shoes. I still get very tired having to do thing…
  • Good morning Vanessa, I hope by now you have received the sickness meds and are starting to feel less poorly. I have been thinking about you. I hope you have been able to eat a little more, and you are taking fluids in. It is another beautiful da…
  • Hi Vanessa, Yes, it turned out lovely here again after a very wet and rainy start. The temperature though very warm. I am sorry yesterday was so hard for you, is there anyone , friend or family, who could fetch the prescription for you? To save y…
  • Hi, welcome to our lovely community, I hope you will find it a great source of support, encouragement and friendship. I am unfamiliar with the type of cancer you have been diagnosed with, however there are several here with a similar diagnosis as…
