Hi I got diagnosed last June with t3 tumour, and lymph nodes. Did chemo and radio.  I know have re growth , new lymph and gone to my lungs told I need emmitiate treatment, still waiting. ImmunUpside downherapy and chemo is my next treatment. Just mad with having a hand grenade I'm my body and I'm being fitted around strikes  Upside down 

  • Hi Marcia,

    Sorry to hear of your diagnosis and reoccurrence. You must be devastated. 

    I too have been kept waiting and delayed due to the strikes. I'm sure most of us have at some point. Like you, I was worried that my tumor was getting larger and spreading during these times.

    Good luck with all your treatment.

    Best regards


  • Hello Marcia 

    Trying to find the right words to acknowledge the pain that your short post emits is quite difficult, I cannot begin to imagine the strength of the different emotions that are going through you at this time. To be told of re-growth is such a blow, but new Mets added to that, would cause you to feel depressed, is only to be expected. How are you coping, it has been a few days since your post, have you had any news about the immuno-therapy? 

    Please remember to reach out to the Macmillan team if you feel overwhelmed by everything that is happening with you, their number is in my signature below. 

    I hope treatment starts for you soon.
