    Hi Kicks. Welcome to What Next. There are lots of great people here. If you have any questions, please use the question tab above -- that way everyone will have access & you'll get a quicker response. I was scared half to death before I started chemo, but it was no where near as bad as I was afraid it would be. I hope you find that to be the case for you as well. I'm glad you found us but sorry for the circumstances that led you here. Wishing you all the best.

    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves.

    Question: Diet

    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): I was shocked about my diagnoses. The docs moved very quick with tests, getting the port in and scheduling chemo.

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): I find it hard to believe no pain meds are given for recovery--even just a day's worth. Tylenol just took the edge off the pain. I didn't realize I would be so sore and unable to move my arm much. I understand I will be happy to have it in the long run.
