      Scared - every check up is a big question mark until you get the results.

      I was anxious at 3 month check up. My 6 mo post chemo is coming up soon and I am chewing a bit on the thought "what if its back?" Then I remind myself to live today and not get fussy about what is to come and ruin the present moment. Sometimes I even listen to myself. Good luck.

      I think that everyone who has had cancer is scared. I was diagnposed twice last year-- had two surgeries, chemo, and just completed radiation.
      One thing that this illness has taught me is that I am going to live each day to its fullest. The cancer could come back. I can't control that. I have to make the most of everyday and try not to let this illness control me. I have to try to live my life as a healthy person for as long as I am healthy. Another cancer diagnosis would devastate me-- but I am not going to spend my time being fearful.

    Well today is my 47th birthday, and I find myself very emotional today. I am very greatful that my cancer was caught early/contained and I am well on my way recovering from surgery. Maybe it's how much I have been through in the past 3 months. I am overwhelmed by all the support and love I have received from all of my friends and family. I am truely blessed.

    Is there anything I can do for numbness in my groin and thigh after lyphnode removal. I was told that it may never go away.

      I cant speak to the numbness in the groin, but I have numbness in my neck after a radical neck disection,29 lymph nodes taken out. Was told the same thing, it may not come back. sucks, but I just accept it. Hope yours gets better!

      My family often asks me if I am getting better. This is not funny and actually frustrates me because it seems that they think once I take the "medicine" all will be fine - like treatment for tonsillitis or something? I don't want to be harsh with them but their acceptance that I have a disease would make me feel better.
