      What do you need to talk about? If you have a question, just post it here, or at least give us a little detail about what your problem is that you need help with. There are lots of people here that will be most happy to chat with you and give you help. Just let us know.

      Us---But it takes you replying-sometimes posting on our walls-following us. So many join right after diagnosis-or some critical point but- and people answer your concern-but the person that answered the question never updates us or makes a connection. You'll learn a lot and teach us a lot, as nobody is exactly the same- the doctors are different-which gives us a different experience. By the way- we're all sorry that you're on this site- none of us would wish this on our worst enemy---but we do get comfort from each other.

      I'm not sure, but it sounds like you need to talk to someone in person/phone. You can call the American Cancer Society for help. They can help you find a support group in your area, or refer you for some additional help.

      Hi Joe! If you need to talk to someone about broad topics on cancer, you can post a question and many of us will respond to try and help. If you have questions/concerns or want to chat with someone specific to bone cancer, click on diagnoses above and then click on bone cancer to be connected with others who also have bone cancer. If you need more in depth emotional support, you may want to speak to someone locally in person. Typically your cancer center can refer you to social workers who can assist in finding the proper resource for you.

      We're all ages, but most people seem 2 B from 55-75. I'm 72, and I've had wonderful conversations with many people that are in the 20-45 year range. We are of different genders-different types of cancer with different treatments and different stages.

      In spite of this-we all have the same denominator-cancer. We get scared about our treatments. If we get a side-effect, we have so many questions-if we don't have the listed side-effects, we are scared the treatment isn't working. We trust our doctors or don't trust them, and either way, we wonder if we're being told the truth.

      At first I didn't think that I'd be able to relate to anybody, as I have a rare cancer. I relate to a lot of people, mostly because so many people do have radiation.

      So good luck-and please let us help give you some comfort.

      Our SOULS do not age so when people relate about anything ( Especially if they can't see each other like a phone call ) we are ALL the same.
      Way too much made about how many years we've been alive. It's mostly about Marketing all the inane products we buy. We are all in debt mostly from buying things we don't need.
      Crazy System where we have to pay others to borrow money to buy things we don't need.....lol...what's up with that. It's amazing it in effect. What kind of System can thrive on that system....? Well it's great for the people selling us the money and charging us for it. We have met the enemy and WE ARE IT......

      Have you tried yogurt? I don't like yogurt but it likes me a lot. Dannon is too sugery for me. I like Yoplait-the sugar is more blended and I hate Greek yogurt. I ate lots of soup.

      I have found that everything goes down better with peppermint tea. I have also found that adding about an inch of ginger root to stir-fries makes them not only very digestable but also yummy. I have found that those little round peppermint candies are a whole lot cheaper than Zantec and work a lot faster

      You need to tell them. My parents both had cancer starting when I was 16. I needed them to know what was happening. I knew they were not ok. It was easier on me to know. Is it hard. Yes. But you will see them come back and support you. We had many close and wonderfulbdays together after I found out. I wouldn't have wanted not to know. I was able to tell them everything I needed to. I wouldn't have it any other way

      Joe, you need to tell your sons. They will know something is wrong. Let them stand up and be adults for you and your wife. They will be hurt that you don't trust them with the truth.

      Good for you. My Daughter is my saving grace. Moved to be near her and her family. Have a 15 yr old grandson. He has dealt with my bald head, cane, etc. out in public, even came when I had to get re-hydrated. Support for me but a learning experience for him, teaches compassion.
