I am new to using this site as well... My journey started in Sep 09... and I can understand your anxiousness... My 3 monthly check is in a couple of weeks... first the CTscan and bloods next week then the following week to see oncology... I've been doing it since early last year after my fist bowel op in feb, I was given a colostomy bag, then had a liver resection around july... then in nov had my bag reversed and my port removed...
I feel like I should be used to it by now but nothing changes... and I dont tell my family how I am feeling as I think it scares them, and why do that I dont want to worry them. They know I have my appointments but I tell them it's no big deal.
I tried to used listening to Music while waiting for my appointment with oncology but I could still think so I have changed to listening to Audio books that way I listen and concerntrate on the stories... I have used that for my chemo.. I just felt it worked best for me... But you just have to try different thinks untill you find what works.
