recently diagnosed

Hi, I was diagnosed with HCC liver cancer last October. I was floored by this as had no idea it was coming, and have been trying to deal with it ever since. Its such a rollercoaster of emotions every day but it is becoming easier. I am married to a wonderful husband, have three kids and am planning, when back on immunotherapy therapy, to start making the most of every day. I got taken off treatment due to life limiting side effect and am hoping that since steroids have reduced them to the point where I can now restart side effects will be handled a lot easier from this point onwards.

  • Hello Dancingqueen, a very warm welcome to you. I am glad to hear that you are hoping to re-start your immunotherapy soon.  As Ellie has said, we are a friendly bunch and here for every emotion going. I can really relate to you saying that you wish to start making the most of each day - I am exactly the same.  Although I do have days where I feel that all I’ve done is sleep! Best wishes to you and looking forward to getting to know you xxxx.
