And if you're really scared, that's all right. Everyone of us felt our throats close when we heard the news.
First, a family history of this disease accounts for only about
10% of b/c cases. There was no history of any cancer in my family either.
The next time you see the onc, have someone go with you and take either a tape recorder or pen and paper so you will have a record of what is discussed.
Above all, you will come through this and everyone here will be waiting to help. Venting is a perfectly wonderful thing to do. Once, I locked myself in my car and had a good primevil scream.
I'm glad you found us and sorry you have to be here. Let us know how we can help.
A good friend will bail you out of jail...
but a true friend will be sitting
next to you saying,
"Dâmn... that was fun!".
