I do not like to complain because I have been given a 2nd chance at life, but this is the hardest thing I have ever been through. I just got out of the hospital on Tuesday everything was good blood count up, blood pressure up. Went for follow up with my oncologist and she is going to make my chemo treatments longer instead of 3 1/2 hrs I will be there for 6 hrs and of course they did blood work & 2 hrs later I got the call my white blood count is down. I do not understand what I am doing I was feeling so good. Is this normal and does this prolong my recovery? All I want is to get better and resume my normal life if that is possible.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
