Sorry i have not been around for a while but due to health problems i have been rather busy .As some of you already know i have had surgery for cancer .Well now after four atempts to remove it i got word a couple of days ago that i still have it . The surgeon wants to operate again but due to a horrific experience the last time only a month ago i extreemily reluctant to go there again . I have a meeting with him again next week but am really seriously considering not having any furthur treatement. So it may be a while before i am back in here again . Take care one and all and please stay safe.....HUGS ..._HOPE_

Hi John sorry it`s taken me so long to get back in here but as i said i had to go away and see the surgeon again thenews wasn`t good and he tells me he is quite concerned and has now referred me to an oncologist who i had to see the same day .He told me my only option is to try some radiation as more surgery would be disfiguring as they would have to remove too much .So you see things are not going so good atm .Now i`m facing several weeks in a mayor city by myself so this treatement can be done .My stress levels are at an all time high with all this and all the other family problems going on . I will try and drop in and keep you updated will see how i go .Take care and stay safe my friend.Jane

I am sad that you have cancer, but I am sure that things will be fine for you. I can understand your reluctance to not have more surgery, but perhaps it is for the best. Perhaps they can try radiotherapy or something like that to shrink it, and then remove it later. (hugs) to you.

Hello hope. I know that what you are going through right now is never easy but God will give you the strength to fight this cancer and He will be your refuge. Miracle is what we can hope for and dont loose hope. For if God still has a plan fo ryour life He will make all things possible for you. Use this to inspire those who have the same problem, there are lots o cancer patients out there and be thankful enough that you can still have the strength to post here on mylot and tell your testimony. God is moving the pieces in our lives and making it possible that we touch other people's lives through our own special ways. Have a nice day Just keep praying, we are praying for you also.

DO not abandon the treatment , we surely would like to see you around here dear. Can you not go and consult some other surgeon instead and look if the experience is better this time. I remember you didn't had that much trouble earlier may be disease has progressed thats why you feel so much effects of it. Do get a second opinion before stopping the treatment altogether.

This is a few weeks old now hope but do sincerely trust that things are looking up for you now. All of your family and friends will be hoping for the best outcome possible. It is up to you to make the decision if you continue with treatment or just let it go. You are the only one who can decide, but I reckon you will have the support of everyone no matter what you decide. I will pass the message on to Ossie because she doesn't come here too often now, but know that she often wonders how you are getting on. If you need her email address or anything, let me know and I will pass the message on to her if you like. Stay safe and we pray that you have the strength to beat this terrible health problem.

Hi i am new here so i am not familar with you nevertheless i just would like to say a few things Our bodies have a ph balance. Unfortunately our meals today are very acidic and when ours bodies are more acidic than alkaline it provide a breeding ground for ailments/sicknesses/illness. So may i suggest you enrich your meals more with alkaline foods like veggies/fruits just know which ones [take alittle research]. I am praying that you will pull through. Get some ph sticks and monitor your ph balance in order to get a handle on things. I read that flaxseed oil works too.
