Still waiting for the results of the analysis of "suspicious" cells removed with the sentinel node during my lumpectomy...Will I just need radio/hormone therapy or chemo too? 26th January will bring an answer to that.

[Votive] for all who are affected by this bastard disease, be they sufferers, have loved ones who are suffering, or lost someone to it.

I have "cells" in a male plumbing location. One of the problems is that those who tell you about them differ in delivery of the info. It's the change that is important as I understand it. If the doc or other who talks of it does not recall well, hasn't done a thorough comparison, or if it is another person I can get a little excited and not positively.

My brother-in-law was diagnosed today with advanced mesothelioma. He has a long course of both radio and chemotherapy. He was a truckdriver of many types of transport. For sometime, he took demolition rubbish to the tip. This incuded loose asbestos in the times when its danger was underestimated.

My very dear friend tells me that she has multiple myeloma. It is in her lungs and chest and has broken her sternum and some ribs. And now she has a blood clot in the area as a reaction from chemo. At Christmas she was a healthy woman with a slight chest pain. Truly this disease stinks.

So, I have been asked to post on this thread (a rare venture into Hell for me!) on behalf of the opening poster.
Cancer does indeed suck! And it has struck our dear Uncle Pete again. He is in hospital as I write and awaiting laparoscopic surgery on Saturday for colonic cancer.

Miss you, Erin.

Dear Lord....

[Votive] for Uncle Pete, and his medical team.

As you may have seen from the other threads, the news is that Uncle Pete has taken a turn for the worse after what seemed to be a successful operation. He is unconscious and on a ventilator with multiple organ failure. It does not look good.
