Hi im new to the site and am wanting to know, ask for some help. I was diagnosed with Renal cell carcenoma which has moved into my bones - causes lots of pain and into my lungs and spot on my brain.......i dont want that to sound like i'm feeling sorry for myself but i am having troubles dealing with it. I am yet to start immunotherapy but that will be next week, i actually came online to see if there was a number to call to speak to someone so i dont know if this is the roght way of doing it. There are alot of blogs i started to read with people with different types and dealing with different issue's, i was looking for just some comfort of like minded people living through treatment and what i can expect...im crying as i type...is this normal.
Hi Darren71, sorry your symptoms are so bad. We’re all different in our responses and some people can stay positive most of the time while some of us have anxiety and cry often. That’s how it was for me and I just had to go with it. I had a very supportive husband and daughter who listened and comforted. Every day was different. If you’re in pain it makes you more emotional too. Once you start the treatment hopefully you feel better in time. Hope you have lots of kind people around you. 🙏💕 Linda G
Hello, how nice of you to offer to help and to share your experience with others who may be in the same situation today that you were in. I am sure they would love to hear about your experiences. As you say, it does help enormously to talk to someone who has also been through the same experience as it makes one feel less alone. I will definitely think of you when someone with cervical cancer posts on the forum. Best wishes.
Hi Darren71, that’s great you got help from lifeline. Yes you are normal and it’s good you can be real about your feelings. All the best for your treatment. I’ll keep you in my prayers 🙏. LindaG
I hope all is well with you and your family today.
Your post is very moving. I respect you for keeping it real . I wish I could be more like you when it comes to sharing how I really feel.
I always suffer in silence because I don't show real emotions. I have no problem showing love to my wife and family but I struggle with staying it. I'm working hard to improve it.
Please keep us updated on how things are going for you and your family.
Hi Darren71, sorry you’re having a bad day. As you say, some days are just like that. I think we would all understand the ups and downs with your emotions. Hope tomorrow is better. Hope your level of pain is under control. Will still keep you in my prayers 🙏💕. Linda G
Sorry to hear about you having a tough day my friend.
Is it because of pain or are you struggling mentally?
Do you have any hobbies that you like or maybe you have one you would like to start
