    Oh No (Early scans due to symptoms): First set of six month post op scans were scheduled for March. Moved to this past Wednesday d/t chronic and unexplained back pain and cough. Results coming Monday.

      We've had a couple really rough days. The pain is overwhelming. Seeing the oncologist on wen. It's a huge change for me trying to be so organized

      Ug. So sorry to hear. Hopefully can get some pain relief somehow? Had myself a bit of a meltdown this morning - but had to get over it and keep on moving. I am trying to share some feelings with my fiancé but it leaves me feeling like I'm adding to his burden. I will keep you in my thoughts this week and wish you some peace ...

      You are in my thoughts as well. I think if my body would let me melt down I'd probably feel better

    Having one of those days where every few minutes, no matter what I'm doing, the cancer thoughts/fears/questions invade my mind. I am a caregiver, we are less than a week away from lung CT to check for spread of RCC. I'm seeing the pattern of in the days leading up to appointments, etc, my anxiety is huge and I have no focus. Trying very hard to be "there" for my fiancé- interestingly, he seems and I think is, much more calm about it! (for which I am thankful). Also realizing that every ache, sniffle, cough, etc that he has-- my mind immediately goes to "cancer". I'm guessing all of this is "normal"; however, may I say, it stinks!! I am again thankful for this site to vent- and, welcome any suggestions, input, feedback... Many thanks...
