Hi I'm new to the site and I have NETs

Hi All, I am a 46 year old male from the Mid North Coast of NSW and I am married with 3 children. I was diagnosied a month ago with Neuroendocrine (Carcinoid) Tumours (NETs) to the small intestine. I am still in the process of undergoing tests to find out how far this has spread and I will soon be off to Westmead hospital for a PET Scan. Upon my return from Westmead I will be commencing Octreotide treatment, whilst we work out my surgery options. The past month has certainly been a roller coaster ride, trying to juggle work, tests and doctors/specialists appointments etc. My heart goes out to all those who have either suffered directly or indirectly with any form of Cancer. Good luck to everyone out there with their journey. Talk soon and keep smiling, Trev
