Jan, I was where you are a little….

over a year ago…Do not panic yet? Promise? Please? The whole shebang really comes down to the biopsy results….THEN the decisions regarding what all to do next…there are often an overwhelming variety of ‘options’ for treatment….Of course, the WAITING is torture…nothing less.
Do not cram your brain with infos about ‘cancer’ until you know where you are about WHICH cancer. You will only info overload before you need to get the right INFO?
Remember back to when you were first diagnosed with CIDP…and all the confusion that came with that…You have to step back now…Remember you are experienced [when panic doesn’t rule] about dealing with docs and info and tests and all the WHAT NEXT’s that go with any territory. Just be cool in-between the panic attacks and wait for what ‘plan’ comes next.. then learn the whole routine and all the pros/cons to decide.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to PM me…I’ll be more than glad to refer you to very reliable cancer sources.
Of course, that is probably not going to stop you from trying to climb up the walls and ceiling in the interim…I for one, suspect I’ve a lot of wallboard in my house that needs replacing because of the ‘coping’ process. It IS hard on the fingernails tho…
