You've had a bit of a setback but I've heard nothing but good about Southampton so I know you'll be in safe hands, and with your excellent attitude I foresee complete success. Like Al, I'll be saying a little prayer, not that I'm at all religious but I do believe in sending out "positive vibes"! Don't tell anyone, but i'm having little pains under the site of my scar, but I'm hoping that's just old age!
You've been a star too Bill, helping out when others have been afraid, and you can be sure of loads of support here yourself.
With love & hugs,
Hi all, having just been diagnosed I am scared but reading all your stories is very comforting, bless ya all x
Sorry about your diagnosis but welcome, you're in the best place! Why not start a new discussion yourself? Then you can tell us a bit about yourself, what treatment you're going to have etc., and we can answer any questions you may have and generally offer you support.
We're all scared silly when we first find out about "the beast" as Bill calls it, but once you're among people who understand exactly where you're coming from, the burden does somehow seem a lot lighter.
You must be the rock of this group. I of course like you will just keep fighting the beast. Between you and I, I have some discomfort around the area of my lung scars, even after 2 years it mostly centers around the area where the cameras were put in also where they needed to put in a drain. the main scar is just tight. If it persists one should have a second opinion. You especially.
once again many thanks and I will keep the group informed on progress.
If you have any questions about Macmillan we would love to hear from you
