My name is Chris
I've recently in the last month been diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in the duodenum with a possible spread to lymph node near pancreas.The symtoms were so common and I was diagnosed with IBS but it was by chance the dr decided to do a pet scan which showed the cancer. It's been really an emotional roller-coaster. They have now done a biopsy on the lymph node near the pancreas as this wasn't done the first time. I don't know where this will all go and what will happen but if I'm honest I'm scared. I'm scared for my family and I'm scared that this will be something that will always be coming after me. I've started treatment at peter mac which are just amazing and I hope there will be a good outcome. I'm told it will be surgery and chemo to treat it.For all those battling the big C keep fighting and remember you are not alone.
So sorry you have been diagnosed with this, it's a scary and unbelievable time isn't it?
I have head & neck cancer and I'm one week post op, will know if I need radiation next week. I also wonder if it will keep coming after me and how and why this even happened. Fingers crossed that all your outcomes will be good, it is amazing what they do these days. Keep fighting and remember that you are not alone either. Best wishes. x
