    Hi I would love to talk to anyone who has had appendix cancer. I am recovering from my Op in Sept 2010. Recovery seems to be taking a long time? I have an iliostomy and find it difficult to put on weight and keep hydrated so my energy levels are low. How about you?

    Having a bad day with thoughts running around in my head that just won't stop.

    I was told yesterday that the reason one of my students has been giving me grief all year is because she doesn't want to get close to me in case I die.

    What am I supposed to do with this information?

    What is Healing What really happens
    QUOTE: "The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul. Let no one persuade you to cure the head until he has first given you his soul to be cured, for this is the great error of our day, that physicians first separate the soul from the body." PLATO
    Healing is the act of getting rid of all the imbalances and creating harmony with the Soul. Consequently, Medicine should be patient centered.

    I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in October 2008. On 1st December 2008 I had a total hysterectomy and was told a week later that they got all the cancer. We had got it so early that I didn't even need treatment.

    Since then I've had checkups and each time they came back negative so this meant an op to burn off the lesions.

    My last checkup was about 2 months ago. I received a letter from my gyno telling me that, again, test were still showing a low grade lesion. He wrote that any more operations would be difficult. He had sent all my info of to a top specialist in Sydney.

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer September last year. I have been so strong for everyone around me even down to hiding side affects of chemo so they would not worry. BUT now I have had enough and I feel for the first time I dont want to be strong and I need to break. I have never asked why but now I do. Why am I the only one in our family history to get cancer, why out of everyone I grew up with does it have to be me, why is there a chance that I am the one that could become just a smell or memory for my children.

    Have finished round one of my chemo after a six year remission. Chemo finished late Saturday night and the effects really hit Late sunday night.

    My daughter came to visit me in hospital, she painted a picture of flowers for me because she couldnt bring in the real thing. She also read books to me which was nice.

    Complementary therapies are those treatments given in conjunction with standard mainstream cancer treatments of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Complementary therapies are used in addition to traditional mainstream treatments to provide supportive care to patients, and are not recommended as a replacement for mainstream treatments.
