    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.

    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. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

    Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help you find any information on the site.

      Have your oncologist speak with your psychiatrist to find a combo that neither inactivates nor potentiates (i.e., dangerously increases blood levels of) the meds or chemo. If your health system offers one, you might want to consult an oncopsychiatrist (not just for fine-tuning the meds but also for talk therapy specific to dealing with cancer).

      Mention anything you take including supplements to your oncologist. They will let you know what you can and cannot take. They should do some type of chemo education so you know about diet, meds, etc.

      Many people take anti-anxiety or psychosomatic meds who are on chemo. If you've already started treatment, then it should be on a med list with your treating doctor.
