Just diagnosed with appendix cancer

I was just diagnosed with appendix cancer after a bout with appendicitis last week. I had scans and now see the doctor on Monday to find out my next step. Has anyone had any experience with appendix cancer? I am terrified of what is next.

Re: Just diagnosed with appendix cancer

Hi cashfive,

I'm sorry to hear that you've been diagnosed with cancer.

I'm sure there is someone around here who has had cancer of the appendix before.

Try not to stress too much until you know more. It could be needless.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe you've seen your doctor today.

How did you go?
