    Cancer Worries

    I try (and usually succeed) to view my life as a grand adventure. Even cancer has been an adventure: I got to see who I am when I am at my weakest. I definitely got to see who my friends are (they are all awesome).

    Anyway. I had a PET scan on Friday and I am just deeply afraid that it's going to show new cancer activity. One year of chemo was bad, two was worse. I do not want a third and I especially do not want a third while everything else is a wreck from the pandemic. (Leaving aside concerns about wrecking my immune system some more.)

    I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. And you are so strong! Let‘s just hope that everything will be alright! When will you get your results?

      I understand the feeling, Kanary. But at this stage, dreading a possible outcome won't make it more or less likely to happen. You've been doing wonderful, but right now, it's out of your hands.

      Next Friday is next Friday.

      Today, you're alive and well.
      Enjoy it.

        I should get short results (of the "everything's fine" or the "we need to schedule an appointment" variety) early this week. I sort of expect them on Monday, but if things are busy I might not get them until Tuesday.

        Redline : You're right and that is exactly what I needed someone to tell me. This is a tomorrow problem and there is nothing I can do about it today. Thank you!

            It's natural to worry Kanary , and it's okay. I know many people who have faced and face cancer and as such I have seen their struggle. I lost a cousin to it, and I have a friend who has beaten it. I have no doubts that you too will defeat it. Not only do you have a will to fight, but you have the support of so many that want to see you succeed, and though I have only spoken to you only briefly in posts, I too am rooting for you.

            Oh, and true strength isn't measured by the ability to deny fear... it is measured by the ability to admit and accept one's fears and then overcome them. You've got this!

              Sad thing to hear. I hope you the best. Makes me feel like a bitch for complaining about minor inconveniences.

              If you have done it 2 years, a third one will be easy as hell. You got this.

                I hear you, the best thing I have ever been told when I've got results pending is "if the results are good- I'll celebrate with you, if they aren't- I've got your back".
                In a random stranger on the internet context, I'll stick with the first part, for the latter: we're here and we can listen.
                Good luck.

                  Just to resonate what everyone else has said ... hopefully things turn out well.

                    Kanary, I go in Thursday for a biannual low dose CT. I’ve had precancerous lesions removed from my vocal chords in 2013 and dentist watch more in my gums. All has been good in the past, but it is always a concern. I’ll keep you in my prayers.

                      You have proven yourself to be stronger than all of this

                        Oh that sounds like a difficult time! Sending good vibes and love

                        Your post made me think of a comic I really liked. It's here: https://xkcd.com/828/

                            It's alright to be scared, I know I would. but like Redline said, it's out of your hands now and whatever happens you'll get through it because that's who you are, a fighter.

                              I'm really sorry to hear that from you. I hope the results turn out okay but no matter what the situation may be, I hope you know how strong and capable you are. Truly wishing you all the best
