    I am doing well. I sometimes get scared, mostly at night, but I am a fighter. I do not think there are a lot of people with carcinoid cancer on this site, but my oncologist states that cases are increasing. You hang in there!

      I think I'm weird sometimes. I never lose sleep over this and find it difficult to think of myself as having had cancer.

    I am doing okay. Everyday is truly a gift. Now I am trying to lose weight, which I have been trying to do all my life. You should not feel bad about being on the site. There are not many people who have this type of cancer so I am told, so that may be why it is hard to find others. I am told to live like I have a chronic illness as well. Enjoy the moments everyday! :)

    I am doing okay! I am still alive and kicking! The sando is holding things at bay right now. How are you doing?

      I don't even feel sick - it's strange. I hope it continues. I guess I thought I would be walking around feeling miserable. The sando helps keep my intestinal symptoms under control. So ... all is well.

    I have carcinoid cancer as well . Surgery is not an option. I have 2 tumors outside the pancreaus, 1 in the stomach, and 1 in the duirdium ( spelling). I am told to live with it as a chronic illness. I received a Sandostatin shot once a month. What are you doing? You are so young! I am 52. Hang in there!
