I was 4 months earlier - thankfully we both made it out the other end
Ok so did you actually get anything out of Latin other then bonus points for your Uni entry score?
I have had Osteomyelitis at my forehead, which means an infection of bone. (why I always have a fringe)
It would be a very lonely thread.
Would gladly shout a round for the big C survivors.
Not a survivor as yet but hope to be... Am currently fighting Hodgkin Lymphoma and have been undergoing chemo for last 6 months.
Found this forum (& new love of everything relating to FF miles/points) whilst going through treatment. Planning a trip to Paris, Rome, Amalfi Coast with my partner next year once I'm all clear
Still learning so much and am thankful for all the helpful posts/threads & AFF members. Has been a positive distraction from the nastiness of having cancer.
If you don't mind me asking, what repercussions have you had from this?
I have it on my ankle from MRSA infection and no one will really explain or let me know what issues I will have in the future....
so long as it's not in the joint and you're 'young' probably not a huge drama so long as it's not also associated with TB and is caught reasonably early. How did it start?
You have no lymph nodes - surely not, otherwise you may be in trouble . I hope you meant that there was nothing found in the lymph nodes, which is cause for positive feelings.Well I'm not a survivor as such, but last month as part of some examinations for an unknown illness the doc sent me for a CT Scan to check for Lymph nodes and I'm pleased to say there are none, which I think means no cancer.
I suppose it depends on how one accepts it and the prognosis. I have always been an eternal optimist.I admire the strength and courage of not just those who have survived but also their families and friends, it must be a very difficult thing to deal with, and I commend you all.
