What is my.Macmillan?
We've had good news. It seems my dads kidney cancer isn't back. But the pain he's been getting in his hips isn't good news. We thought it was arthritis and that he would need a hip op but the scan was clear. There was no wear and tear on his hip. The consultant thinks its bone cancer. He has to go for a blood test tomorrow.
I feel numb and don't know what to think at the moment. My mum is distraught. I'm trying to reassure her that we don't know for definite but it's hard. I guess we just have to wait which is one of the hardest things about cancer.
You are dead right one of the hardest parts of having Cancer is waiting for the test results. The consultant thinks!!!!!!. wait until he knows for sure. Look after eachother.
Take care and be safe Big Hugs Love Sarsfield.xx
It is the most excrutiating part of cancer............ the waiting, its easy to say dont worry but you will because its a natural reaction. I do hope the news is good and i wish you and your Dad and family all the very best.
Not knowing the whole story is so frustrating. I can really sympathise with you because we are waiting right now for John's scan results which were delayed because of his stay in hospital.
I do hope you don't have to wait too long.
Lots of love and HUGS, Madge x x x x x x
Hope you get good news quickly.
sending you lots of hugs and hope the results are good news x x
Thank you all for your messages, they brought tears to my eyes. My dad has had a blood test which according to the doctor "looks promising". He goes for his bone scan tomorrow so again we are still waiting. It's hard because he has convinced himself it is cancer. He's in so much pain especially at night. I've just been to see him and he's already talking about if the worst happens he wants to go on a big family holiday before. You don't know what to say because you want to be positive but he's trying to prepare us. Hopefully we should hear something soon. Thank you once again for all your support. I will update once i know xx
