    So sorry, craigy. I can only say none of us know what will happen to us but we make the best decisions we can at the time and this is what you did. Best wishes.

    Well my gloom has lifted somewhat. A google after my news last week had left me facing the worst case scenario. An appointment with the specialist today has made me appreciate that while there is no guaranteed cure, there is still fight... especially as it has been caught early.

    Thanks for letting us know and it's good to hear that you are feeling encouraged after seeing your consultant.

    Hope all goes well for you, craigy.

    Just to say I am still here! Lots of good days since my really glum post and I have won most of my health battles so far. Not been easy but I am doing great.

    Well I am still here. Really miserable and painful 9 months. Getting some energy back and the last round of tests showed low levels. Sadly no cure but I have been told that they can manage my cancer for a good while longer all being well.
