Just popping in to share my good news. I am now, officially, 2 years out from my diagnosis and clear !  :D My annual mammogram shows nothing untoward. So I suppose it's really great news!

I hope everyone who uses this thread and their loved ones are doing well.
Love to all. x  :)

That's wonderful news, pleased for you.

Brilliant news!

I just realized that this Thursday was the 3rd anniversary of me getting the all clear from the doc after my surgery for testicular cancer. I've been to 3 check ups and the last time the doc told me I was out of the woods and I should go home and live a normal life again. :)

More good news, well done mate. It's so good to hear about the success stories, as sometimes its easy to forget there are plenty out there who have managed to win the fight against Cancer. I hope others can use these cases as a bit of inspiration, should they face the same dark days.

Just come back from Clatterbridge this afternoon with my 50 year old son there for his 6 monthly check after him undergoing his final Pappillon session some months back (for cancer of the rectum). What a fabulous bloody place that is and doing some  truly ground-breaking stuff!! Apart from a small niggly ulcer which gives him a little pain from time to time but is manageable with routine paracetamol and which he WAS told could happen in abut 40% of patients on radio-therapy treatment, all appears to be perfectly normal. They'll see him again end of October. Onwards and upwards eh? :) :)

I was thinking of you when I wrote that. I remember last year you saying you were 2 years out when I was one. Long may it continue. :D Like you my consultant believes I had cancer in 2017 and in years to come it will be a distant dream. I am on daily medication but the side effects are minimal. Small price to pay  ;) My check ups have now been reduced from every 3 months to every 6. Little acorns and all that.

Great news Johno. Delighted for you, your son and all the family.

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes.

I have just heard from a friend (who's in his 60's) that his youngest son has been diagnosed with a tumour in his spine which has now spread. They are stopping treatment as there's nothing they can do.  He's 35 and married with two lovely young children. Don't know what to say to him apart from that I'm there if he needs to talk. Feel so empty though - God knows what my friend is thinking.

You shouldn't be burying your children.

Vile disease.

my partner of about 5 years and mother of our two month year old girl has been verbally diagnosed with breast cancer after getting a lump examined, proper biopsy results come next monday and the indications were it hasn't spread to lymph nodes but i'm in shock this has happened to the person i care about and love the most, the difficulty in keeping her spirits up and seeing the fear in her eyes is heart breaking.

Hi Luke, sorry to hear your news.

I was that soldier in March 2017. Like your partner I was diagnosed before the results of the biopsy and also told the lymph nodes were clear. Believe me when I tell you the key is to remain positive! I put all my trust in the doctors - they had to fix me, I was just a passenger on the journey.

Everyone’s cancer is different- although the diagnosis may be the same - so I won’t waffle about mine. But please take some comfort in knowing I had a lumpectomy, 4 weeks of rads and now take a tablet called tamoxifen- which I will be on for a total of 10 years - and I am officially 2 years out and clear!  The clear lymph nodes is a reason to be positive.

My journey transformed me as a person. I became more tolerant, more confident and more focused. Surround yourself with positive people. Cut all negativity out - even if that includes some family members. Stay strong.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to ask me - via pm if they’re very personal. I’m sending you much love and good wishes, you and your partner can do this!

Shit Luke, so very sorry to hear this. Hopefully they've caught it early and the prognosis will be good. IrishSu's advice is better from experience than whatever nonsense I could add.

Sending all our love to you and your family ❤️

thanks for your kind words especially su for sharing your experience that is such a positive one, i'm hoping and praying that she has a recovery that helps her grow as a person like yours. she is much stronger than she realises and hopefully looking after our gorgeous little girl will be a good distraction for us while she goes through it.

I hope it's ok to post a link in here. I came across this little girl on Twitter. She is a little red and my heart melted. Her parents are looking for retweets to help get her to America for a better chance of life.
I believe she is in remission but has a high chance of relapse.

It's amazing how many parents have to go through this in this country. This bastard of a disease never stops.

Best wishes to everyone in this thread.

Received some really sad news today, one of our work colleagues has just been diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. She had just been for a biopsy but she was sure there was something not right and today it was confirmed. She's only 48 and is one of loveliest people I've met just hoping against hope that they have caught it early enough for her to stand a realistic chance. She is going for a MRI Scan next, which is when she will find out if its spread or not.  :(
