hi, i did one year of 5fu, 16 years ago. after 6 years i quit going to my oncologist, i know a dumb thing to do. now i am having very bad pains on my left side and i am scared. i don't think that i could go through treatment again, but i have a mentally handicapped daughter home that needs total care. i am so confused! i had a colonoscopy 4 years ago and they had removed 1 polyp. i have not returned for another one, but am thinking about it very hard, but scared of the outcome. i am on the smoking community right now trying to quit. i am struggling with that also and all this extra stress on me is becoming harder and harder for me to deal with. i did tell my husband about the pains, he did not say much, just said better go get it checked. i don't know why i am asking for advice, because i know what it is. i just had to tell someone that has dealt with this. i don't have a big support system at home, and have not told my other 2 children about the pains and other symptoms that i am having. thank you so much for just letting me get this out! i just had to tell someone that i was so scared! judy

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
