1. Sending you good thoughts.

Once you know the reality of your situation, you can get a good treatment plan in place.

4. Best wishes for a good outcome

Suggestions from the experience:
Take a notepad and write things down.
Stop the doctor to ask for spelling and clarification.
Ask for a description of options including likely outcomes and percentages
I found it helpful to have someone with me to help recall details
Do your own research with the info at hand
Itís confusing but there are very good outcomes even if you hear the worst news.
If youíre clear this time, change your ways to eat less sugar and more vegetables, less canned and boxed, and bagged foods and more fresh!

Best of luck!!!

12. Hoping for good news

My son has had two scans since his gamma knife radiation in October. The second one a couple of days ago showed stable disease with no new leasions. I hope you get fantastic news today.
Sending love and healing vibes your way.

14. Hope for the best

I was given a 40% chance of survival. It appears I survived.

If you are so inclined and can do it legally, weed will ease the nausea and other symptoms of chemo and radiation. I would spark up, coverup! And listen to some tunes. Thom Yorke was my salve.

Drink water.

I hope you donít need my suggestions

Clear since May 2016

Thanks to The VA and U of K Markey Cancer Center. They saved my life.
