    Do you worry about every ache and pain--that it might be the cancer?

    I know that I have aches and pains. I am 64 years old. It happens. And before diagnosis I wouldn't have thought twice about it. But now, good grief! Everything is suspect! Anybody else out there do the same thing? I can usually adjust my thinking before I get into too much of a tizzy, but it is disturbing to say the least. I finished my chemo on Dec. 18th, and will have my follow up PET scan on Feb. 3, with my Dr. appointment on the 5th. So I haven't gotten an all clear yet, although my doctor was very satisfied with my mid-chemo CT and said he expects all to be well for this upcoming scan.

      YES I DO. I get so worked up everytime I have anything simple usually nothing major. I wish that I wouldn't do it. My poor husband and daughter gets so scared they scare me. We all need to chill I know but when you go through what we have been through its hard. I know my doctors want to tell me to chill. Ha.

      It's not legal in Florida but I'd like to smoke a big Doobie.
      I may mover to Colorado or Washington State.
      It is very hard to NOT worry about it.....Wish it was different.
