  • @sarahscar Hi Sarah I am sorry to hear your story. You have been through a lot and with chemo and radiotherapy to come, it is not surprising that you are feeling anxious. I am pleased that you have found us and I am sure that members of our commun…
  • @Me62 Good evening I am so sorry to read your story and I really feel for both of you. It seems to me that you have far too much to cope with on your own and you really need support. As Lou has said, MacMillan Cancer Support may be able to provide…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Great to hear that you went to see Les Miserables. Fantastic. I don't know Hamilton, but I will now try and see if I can find it on YouTube. So sorry to hear about your photos and memorabilia. I do hope you are able to salvage most…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Wow, guess I should have known that. One year already! Thank you for reminding us. I even forgot my own birthday this year - deliberately perhaps.🤣 I absolutely agree that the anniversary is to be celebrated. it has been a pleasure…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Yes, passing the cognitive and memory tests was a relief though I did swot up before I went. The doctor who referred me had asked me the day, date and month so I made sure that I knew them before the test in case they came up again.…
  • Hi @kar399 Lovely to hear from you though I am sorry to hear about your family cancer history and your own diagnosis. You must have heard a lot of well meaning but misguided comments over the years. I absolutely agree with your comments about 'fig…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin Yes, it would be great to let them know how valuable their podcasts are. I will be listening to episode 2 soon. I am perfectly happy for you to show my screen name if you wish. I love this community and anything which might h…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin and thanks for your kind comments. I have listened to episode 1 of ‘Cancer and You’ and found the observations of Bruce, Sarah and Rod who talked about their cancer lessons very interesting. They all made points which struck a…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin I have just read your article ‘7 things to remember’. Sorry to be so slow getting there, it was most interesting and I nodded and smiled to myself at several of the points you made. I have an aggressive and inoperable prostate…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin My good friend Ron wrote a lovely poem called “Best of Friends”. I posted it on this site a few months ago and I reproduce it here with a few minor changes to fit the Community as I see it. LBWC BEST OF FRIENDS This g…
  • @BairdCarrbridge Hi and thanks for posting. I am sorry to hear of your wife’s bowel cancer and I hope that she continues to cope with the chemo without too many side effects and that it is effective in clearing her cancer, I am sure that there wil…
  • @Shands Hi Sue I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis and it would be good to know that the CT scan will show that you are now cancer free following surgery. Of course, you still have chemo, radiotherapy and hormone treatment to come and I hope that…
  • Hi readers I hope you do not mind my observing that men undergoing hormone treatment for prostate cancer DO go through hot flushes and various other unpleasant and uncomfortable side effects too. This is often not recognised, not least by other men …
  • @Mark Hi Mark Thank you for posting and telling us of your experience of prostate cancer surgery and its subsequent effects. As you will recall from our posts of 21st and 23rd April respectively, we have both endured the frustration of being told …
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb Well, the cricket turned on its head. The most extraordinary day I have ever seen. Even more so than the World Cup final. Same hero too. Ben Stokes. That guy must be Superman. Great evening at the Portuguese Fair last night. …
  • Hi Lou That is so beautifully expressed and I don’t think there is anything worthwhile I can add to it. I love being part of this community and meeting all of you amazing people and hearing your stories. As Lou said, you are not alone, we will alwa…
  • @Maggymay @Davidvalletta Hi Maggymay, What a lovely positive and kind message and I am sure that David and Janet will draw real encouragement from it, It is great to know that you have worked on your mental well being as well as your physical e…
  • @Davidvalletta Hi David I am sorry to hear of your wife's diagnosis - it is not surprising that you are both feeling anxious. It is at least good to know that your wife will be having surgery next week as the waiting is often the worst part. I th…
  • @Samseal6 Hi Sam I am so pleased that you decided to join our group. I do understand your reluctance as I had never been a member of any online group prior to being diagnosed with cancer three years ago. I think that living with cancer can feel l…
  • @MrBumpsMum Hi Vicky Welcome to our friendly group.  Wow, you have been through a lot but thank goodness you are cancer free at last and just four injections to go.  It must have been devastating to lose your Dad at the same time as you were diagn…
  • Hi @diddydi68 It is wonderful news and I am so so pleased for you.  You have been through a great deal and you and your partner deserve some good news. I hope you are planning a celebration.  Thank you for posting. Good news is so encouraging for…
  • Here are some of the agapanthus. (Image)
  • @Lesley Hi Lesley Haha, you got me there. I was driving so yes it is water I’m afraid and I had a cup of coffee later. It was quite funny because after lunch, the girls stayed at the table for a gossip and I went into the lounge to watch the crick…
  • @Sunny139 Hi Pauline Wow, you have been through so much since you found your lump last November.  It is great to know that you have finally got through the chemo and radiotherapy and that your cancer treatment is finished.  Look forward to hearing…
  • Hi @KitKat So sorry to hear your news.  I can fully understand how you feel and that you need time to get your head round it all. It must be particularly upsetting given that you have been through previous cancer diagnoses.  Do you have a MacMill…
  • Hi @Ange Yes it does. I remember when I was diagnosed I felt just the same. You do get used to it though and we will be here to chat and support you whenever you want. Rob x
  • @Ange7 Hi Ange Welcome to our friendly community. Unfortunately, cancer of any type is rarely a quick fix but it will be brilliant to hear that your cancer has been removed following your procedure. Do you have a MacMillan Cancer Support near you…
  • @Sunshinedaff Yes, I forgot about that. I think my sister and I have reverted to shouting again as we are both a little deaf📣 Haha
  • @KitKat @Sunshinedaff We were at Addenbrookes in Cambridge for a month and we knew we couldn't eat out every day. Luckily, the flat had a decent kitchen and fridge freezer so we stocked up at the supermarket and ate in most days. We bought a flask …
