      Keep your head up, and know that you are never alone. I will be praying for you. I don't know if you are a religious person or not,but I know that God has you in His hands!

    Oh No (primary care doctor said i have a Fistula.): my primary care doctor on the 23ed said i have a (fistula ) invading my bladder, vaginal, and rectum, areas with drainage and a moderate amount of blood now coming from all three areas :( that`s why the cancer doctor ordered a pet scan :( and waiting for the insurence precert # to be able to get apointment for the pet scan. tiring out of all these test and scans every time you turn around, and worrying what will they find, and what will you have to do again and again.

    Oh No (Cancer is back/Recurred ): since September 1, 2015 they have me back on chemo treatments, this Tuesday i have my 7th one, they make me sleep a lot for a few days after, and you can`t eat of drink anything cold, and lots of times things have a metallic taste, the doctor says the numbers they look at are on there way back down, so maybe i won`t need to many more. BUT i`m more tired of the drainage still 2 yrs and 5 months, and have got bacteral infections there, might be because with chemo, my body can`t fight it off, And it hurts going though all this alone again :( and sore where my ostomy is to.

      Hi Beckylue - sorry you're going through this again. It's been almost 2 years since my lung mets were discovered & my nodules remain stable on my current treatment. Just curious what your doctor has to say about the drainage & the pain in/around your stoma. If you need someone to talk to let me know - I can have Greg send you my info. I hate to hear you're going through this alone. Take care of yourself - Bonnie
