Hi everyone, I am new to this forum's boards. I was just looking to find some people who are going through or have gone through the BIG C-word. I had thyroid cancer taken out in April 2017, they removed my whole thyroid. I have been able to stay very positive for the past three years. But my spouse had a heart attack in Feb 2020 ( he is doing great now) But for 2 months it was hell. I thought I was losing him. I got no help from his family, not even any phone calls. Once he started to get better, I found my health was not doing so well. I would go for my 3month blood work and my TSH and cancer markers started to go up. So I just had my 3 blood work done and my cancer markers have doubled. I am very scared because I have always read CANCER loves stress. I just had a CT scan done and it shows no residual left behind but I have multiple lymph nodes but they are all too small. So he wants to wait until Dec and see what my numbers are if they go up or down. He will make a plan for the new year. The waiting game is just killing me. I just can't seem to shake it this time. I am finding it so hard to stay positive. They have also done some blood work checking for multiple myeloma/bone cancer. MY stress level is so high and it is so hard because I can't talk to my spouse I don't want him to worry about me. I have 3 grown children but we all live in different provinces so they have their own lives and don't get to really see how upset and bad that I am doing🙁.
Any hoot I hope it was okay to vent out on this page.
