Bad News

Some while ago I was having problems with severe back pain which I thought was a trapped spinal nerve. I did rant a bit about my GP Surgery not taking it seriously enough and one Dr even saying it was age related and I'd have to live with it. Well, I've been told I have Lung Cancer and Bone Cancer on my Spine and it is incurable. I haven't trusted my GP's for some time and now I feel sick to the stomach every time I walk in to that surgery. .The Dr's at the Hospital are evening questioning my diagnosis of COPD. I've known about this for two months now and I've come to terms with it. I stated Chemo last week and determined to keep going.

  • How absolutely horrendous. I am so deeply sorry for you. Good for you to keep going - whats the saying - Don't let the bastards get you down! Good luck with the chemo - with love and best wishes TAD xx

  • This is devastating news, you must be so furious.

    I hope you will have the energy to focus on a massive case for negligence when you're feeling stronger.

    It's unbelievable, I'm so very sorry indeed. I wish there was something I could say or do to help. I wish you all the very best for your chemo treatment.

    My husband had bone cancer (secondary to prostate) for years he wouldn't see the medical profession but for his last couple of years he did and was given a wonder drug intravenously to fast track calcium to his bones. I'm sorry I can't remember what it was called but it helped enormously. Peeg, with best wishes

  • sorry to hear your news, seems doctors these days dont want to delve deeper , especially if you already have illness, everything relates to what you have, (in my opinion) you have to really push to get anywhere. hope you feel strong enough soon to put in a negligant case, wishing you well xx

  • I'm so sorry to read this Wiggins, you must be in shock, I have always thought if I was diagnosed with cancer I would seek an alternative to chemotherapy such as Pheonix Tears which is a natural cure for it. I'll be thinking of you and saying prayers for your complete recovery,all the best Wiggins,huffer xxxx

  • Wiggins I don't know what to say, you must want to scream, Drs constantly tell us they are trained & know Our bodies better than we do, but their incompetence is beyond negligence sometimes, Please take my very best wishes & I hope with the treatment you get from your specialist you do eventually see some improvement in your pain
