I'm NOT a cancer survivor, but I was pretty sick in 2017, and spent 23 days in the hospital. My best advice is to communicate with, and listen to your doctors, take your prescribed medications, and keep the faith ! My prayers to you.

I have no information to help you tree daddy but just wanted to say you sound like your made of pretty tough stuff. You'll get through this. Hope somebody else has some helpful answers.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Be strong Treedaddy . I'll be having dinner with a close friend tomorrow afternoon . She has fought cancer for 9 years now . Dinner may not be a appropriate time with everyone there , but I'll speak privately with her ASAP for you . The Lord is on your side buddy . You WILL get through this .

1st, wishing you well & prayers for you.
2nd, although we are all human we react to the same things differently.

example: one family member of mine went through chemo with very few side affects, another was down for a week afterwards.

so again, I wish you the best.

At age 58 my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. She had difficult chemo sessions and laid in bed a lot afterward. At her 1 year checkup, it was discovered that the cancer had returned so she had another surgery and a longer and stronger chemo series that really knocked the crap out of her. She essentially lost two years of her life through all of it.

Yet she survived and is now 71 with clean checkups now. Being treated for cancer is not easy physically or mentally for the patient or their family. But stick with it, have faith, and don't give up no matter what. There are new treatment options being developed all the time. Best of luck to you.
