Lets hope the results are good for you or that it is treatable. Fingers crossed.

It can be heartbreaking to read some of the stuff on the Internet. Always try and stick with reputable UK sites, like the NHS or BLF, and take the American sites with a pinch of salt as many of them are sponsored by the big drug companies.

The BLF helpline opens at 10am if you've time to give them a call for some reassurance before you go for the results.

You do have people to talk to, right here :-) A problem shared...

Everything crossed for you for tomorrow Maggie.

I know it's hard but try not to get too worked up until you know the results. I live by the philosophy of not worrying about things you cannot change. Save your energy for the next steps, whatever they may be. Good luck. Auntymary xx

Good luck & best wishes Maggie xx

Keeping everything crossed, I'm sure it will be fine.

I hope you have someone to go with you.

Hi Maggie, so sorry to hear the news but I must tell you to ask for options. Many yrs ago when therepy for cancer was very new my mother was diagnosed with throat cancer. The throat surgeon thought she should have her voice box removed but she was adamant she could not do that as she loved to sing and of course to talk. The upshot was she was given various choices (one of which was to do nothing, she had 3 months to live) she chose radium therapy on the throat. The good news is she lived for a further 25 years and did not die of cancer. The moral of all this is to ask for your options. Treatment now is so varied. Ask for advice and if you need support ask for it. Macmillan nurses to name just one band of wonderful people. Good luck Maggie. I shall think of you. Please let us know how you got on. Maximonkey.
