    Oh No (Money): I am on SSDI, and lost my retirement/401 because I had to use it for the first cancer in 2006, and I had to sell my home...I try to find work, but no one hires 55+ people...no matter how much experience I have, and I have great work ethic...ugh! .... But hey I somehow make it anyway. with $70.00 LEFT AFTER AOYING BILLS THATS FOOD. I'M STILL STANDING.

    Celebration (Remission): EVEN THOUGH I AM IN REMISSION, I STILL PANIC WHEN I GET THAT PAIN IN MY RIGHT UPPER QUAD. But I still thank God for each breath I take.

      First of all congratulations on the long term remission.When I entered remission only three months ago my doctor told me in addition to regular checkups to listen to my body.Before I was diagnosed with the cancer,I knew something was wrong and when my symptoms increased was not aggressive enough with the doctors and thus was misdiagnosed for seven months.LISTEN to your body and phone the doctor!,make an appointment, if warranted take the tests. It will be a win,win.If it is nothing you have piece of mind,if it is something,your on top of it,your bodies' alarm system worked.Wishing you the best.

      Thank you for responding, I've gone to see my doctor at City of Hope and he tells me everything is fine, and it is just scar tissue ... maybe I'm over reacting.
      But it is always good to see to many others here, God Bless you all.
