***SmallTalkRed late stage cancerUPDATE***

Postby SmallTalkRed » Mon Sep 14, 2009 6:02 pm

Hello I will leave this up for a while then move it to cancer depression. But I am FAR from depressed.

I had tests all week and the Friday I talked to
my Onocology Dr he said, I am doing great, all tests are normal, there
is nothing showing that the radiation damaged my lung. It looks totally
normal, no scarring, and I have went several weeks with NO PAIN!

I told him, I am cured. He said yes, "you fought and now there
is no cancer". I still have to go to check ups but I am not worried.
*dancing,spinning,laughing*
All the chemo, baldness, blod clots, radiation, pnuemonia,3rd degree burn from radiation.....Feeling half dead...I did it. I did it!!!!! The doctor said, my attitude which is positive HUMOUR and fighting all the way through. I am telling everyone this, because if I can, anyone can. My Doctor is amazed.
It is nice to post something positive. Thanks for everyones good thoughts, well wishes & prayers. :D
Love,
Red

Nice to know you're okay.

Cancer's one of those illnesses we all dread and if you can beat cancer you can beat anything this world throws at you.

Thank you morning star,

It does seem like a monster, but quick action, I had a very aggressive cancer, and agreeing to take on
a treatment that was aggressive saved me.
So all the things I went thru as a child and teenager, and healing helped me keep looking up and over the next wave. So you are right what does not kill you, might freak you out, but makes you stronger.

It's very nice to have you around, Red. Really. I was thinking of you and whether I could "fight" at all. I would probably just lie there and die. Maybe one needs a purpose to do it.

That is so sweet Philo, If it had happened 3 yrs prior to that I would have thought"thank goodness now I have a way out of this mess of a person that I thought I was. If someone would have told me what was going to happen and what I was going to do about it, I would have said no way!

But Philo, you have a purpose just like I do, human spirit. I think to live is to have the chance to feel, and survive. You are just as strong a person as I.

I am glad to be around, but for you to say that, is really nice to hear.

xoxo

I am so happy for you, Red!!! Both because you won, and also because of the way you fought.

My grandfather didn't survive leukemia, but you survived this! In some way, it makes up for it a bit--I don't know why. I'm really glad that you're here, and that you're a living (and living well!) role model/example/inspiration for what can happen if you fight for it.
