@Kc1972 Well done on advocating for yourself. You are actually doing better than you think. You are moving forward, you are sharing your feelings and fears and helping yourself to make sense of your situation. I too went through a clinical trial for immunotherapy that failed. A 4th surgery was successful (so far) in removing a recurrent cancer. I understand how difficult it is to wake up everyday not knowing the future. I've got unknown primary cancer, so I can never say I am cured, because that is not how it works. Understanding your situation and seeking options is something you are doing well. I learned a long time ago the value of a “Plan B” in my back pocket, and that is the value in a second opinion. That's why I am still here - 5 years later.
I send you positive prayers and thoughts for the trial @Kc1972
Keep moving forward and do your best to live while you await information.
Your fire! Your spirit! Keep doing that.
I always said that I would never let a doctor tell me how long I had left. Doctors are very intelligent, but they've been proven wrong.
I love that you are doing yoga and walks. I love that you are connected to people and cats that you love. I love that you are praying. I am a huge believer in the mind\body connection.
These things are incredibly important to sustaining your life, along with your health care advice.
This is all, of course, easy for me to say, as I am not in your position. You have a lot to take in, emotionally. Do you have a supportive care contact at your cancer centre?
Keep sharing here and we will be with you.
@Kc1972 WOW WOW WOW !!! What I just read was : Full speed ahead and get the whiners below decks ! No matter what never lose that fighting spirit !
All those things you want to do ? Go do them. I was told by my oncologist was to celebrate Christmas early. We had Christmas day actually the day after on Sunday as we had to wait for some family to get here. My birthday is in a few weeks and I plan on birthday cards and an ice cream cake from DQ.
So go live ! Sounds like you have support and that is awesome to have. Also we want pictures of your 50th 😁
