  • Hi Andy I am so pleased for you that yesterday went well, counting down is an excellent idea. I used to tick off everyday I got through chemo, even better if it went without incident. I really hope the next few days which can be tough are not as …

  • Hi I don't know anything about your particular operation, but I do know from the ones I have had that the pain took a lot longer than I was told by the surgeon to recover from. Did they give you any indication how long recovery may take? Keep up w…

  • Hi Laura, Yes I know what you mean., I am the same. I remember during my chemo days and treatment that every time I had to go to hospital I had blue sky and sunshine every single time. It was autumn and winter and for me just one of several littl…
  • I know Tracy, once you know the way forward, you will be able to set your mind to getting through each stage. The fear will try and dig in deep, try not to let it. Stay away from Google etc, nothing ever good comes from doing that! I had to think…

  • Hi, I am really sorry to hear of this possible diagnosis for you. That must have been a terrible shock to hear at the dentist. Even though you have been through cancer before, and it is fantastic that you came through it 8 years ago, it is still …
  • Hi, Well done on going through with the MRI, it's a big thing to overcome given how you have felt previously. It's good you have a start date for treatment too, just take it one day at a time, as has said, ask as many questions as you need to so…
  • Hi Laura, Were you able to discuss the things you needed to that you originally wanted to talk about? I am sorry it seemed unfruitful for you. At least if you do want to go again you are in the system so to speak. The good thing is that you both h…
