    Waiting for test results is the worst!

    Any suggestions for coping with stress/anxiety while waiting to see what future treatments may be advised (like chemo)?

      I agree the waiting is the worst. I had surgery Dec 2 and I have been waiting ever since and must wait till middle of July for Cancer treatment Centers of America. I have just about reached crazy
      and it continues on and on.

      I can sympathize with you. Waiting and not knowing is the toughest part, I think. Doctors thought I had stage 3 cancer and in my lymph nodes. After surgery and pathlogy I learned I had stage 2 cancer and cancer in only one lymph node. A masectomy, followed by radiation and chemotherapy - is a long road....but you can make it. I learned to pray a lot. I think it's the only thing that got me through. Good luck to you.
