Hi, I'm new here, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2016 which metastasised to my lungs. It has now gone into my back. I have to have more scans and blood tests and see my oncologist in September. Hopefully he will then apply for funding for alternative treatment. I'm just hanging on at the moment. So worried but hoping to read your stories. 

  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read that your cancer has spread into your back and it's natural to be worried.

    I'm not a member of this forum but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

  • Hi,

    How are you doing? Was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer 4 days before Christmas last.Had thyroid and lymph node removed. Spread to right shoulder.Now just found out also in one of ribs/base of skull and a bit at the base of the back.Have arthritis in knees as well. Thing that got me the most was seeing the word incurable on the oncologist letter.

    Hang in there , I'm living day by day and the oncologist reckons I can get a few more years.

  • HI Marty, sorry  to hear of your diagnosis.  I also have secondaries.   5 years ago  double masectomy,  2 and 1/2 years ago  bone cancer  in sacrum, sternum , ribs, back of neck and also a brain tumour. I know it is hard  but while  there is treatment there you must stay positive .I also have problems  with both my legs in walking  etc. Make the most  of every  day

    .

  • Hi Marty sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Cancer sucks, all we can do is try to live each day as it comes. It's very scary though.
