Well I'm back. I've had some scans done and now it's in my other lung. It's not even a year since treatment for the other lung finished (that tumour has gone). I'm not even sure what to do this time. Do I just accept it? The kids are 15 and 13, I have majority care, their father isn't very supportive, in fact he has been telling people cancer is contagious (the frightening thing is people believe him). How hard do you fight when it's the third time in 3 years? I've been trying to organise getting to my biopsy on Tuesday, no family live here, and my friends are too busy....Do I drive myself? I drove myself to 5 and half weeks worth of radiation, don't think I can do it again....

Sorry you are faced with more treatment when you thought it was over . You need to do what will make you well again for your kids and for yourself . I cannot understand your kids' dad saying such a stupid thing and didn't think anyone would believe such nonsense . Most people know better than that . I wish you well .

I am so sorry that you have to face this alone and for the 3rd time life is so cruel some times. I honestly cant believe that anybody would be so stupid as to believe its catching are they thick in the head or something. Anyway sorry for the rant if you have managed it twice before that means your strong so you can do it. Keep singing the song ( I will survive its the womems mantra ) All the best marshie
