I wrote this on your other post, but will say again here -- if you can go to an in person support group, I highly recommend it. I go to one, and almost every month we have someone in your situation. The cancer diagnosis is overwhelming and things happen so fast, and people aren't sure they want to live if they have to have a bag and risk surgery. Not sure if you're in that boat, but it is enormously helpful to see regular people, in the flesh, who have made it through to the other side and are living good lives.
You can handle IV's, you can handle surgery and the like if you need it to save your life. It's totally overwhelming and of course you're freaked out, but a lot of people have walked this path, and many of them will help you get through. Hang in.
