So my friend who didn't have cancer, then had cancer and 2 weeks to live, now a week later does not have cancer, just some tumours that will kill her in maybe a year. I knew it was fucking bullshit all along. Astounded at how shitty and wrong the doctors could be though! Bet they'll change their minds again next week. Assholes.
Sorry that youve all been put through what must be an incredibly emotional time, it is sometimes very hard to pin down for them and nowadays they are trying so hard to catch everything that mistakes are made. Hope your friend finally gets a definitive answer so they can get the treatment they can.
Also, so sorry to hear that Kit, hadnt checked in here for a while. Really sorry to hear, my thoughts are with you and your family mate.
Chakan, my grandad had prostate cancer and even though they caught it relatively late, he managed to fight it for years. Unfortunately by the time it was treated it had spread into his bones and theres nothing they can do for him now. In the same boat as Kit, just managing his pain and making him comfortable. The Macmillan nurses are absolute heroes, the work they do and the support they provide is brilliant, if you have any problems or worries you can call them for a chat, have a look here mate: http://www.macmillan.org.uk/HowWeCanHelp/HowWeCanHelp.aspx
Its great that they caught it early, thats always the main point in how they can deal with it. Catch it early and theres a great chance you can fight it off or at the least keep it under control. Hope he gets better mate, keep us posted.
Devastated to hear that EST, cant imagine how wrecking that must be. Its awful when it just hits fast like that, my thoughts are with you mate.
I hate this thread sometimes, just so much pain and hurt, such a c*nt of a disease. But theres so much support and help here in this daft bloody forum that it really helps just posting with people who are going through the same thing. Best of luck to everyone dealing with this bastard. Much love.
