13 Months Post Op and its back

Devastated. 13 months post op making steady progress but the CT scan revealed cancer all over the liver, in base of stomach and in coeliac axis artery. Treatment not an option. Chemo offered but would only extend survival by about a month. Suggested I have 4-6 months but of course very difficult to assess. Staying positive at the moment. Already wonderful support from family and friends. Not posted to create anxiety but to share the fact this can happen.

    You have had to listen to the words we all dread and I feel for you and your family at this time. The time you have will be decided by your body and not statistics. I know you will be anxious about leaving your family but you must do what you need to do to get through and achieve a good as possible quality of life. There will always be good and bad outcomes so don’t apologise for telling you situation as it is. There are no better people than here to fully understand what you are going through and be with you in thought. Below is something I wrote some time ago-

    ~Wasted moments~

    I am neither a spring flower nor a mighty oak, I am just a man with frailty of life, it’s not the time I have but the journey that counts, regrets for the future of what might have been are what the reaper leaves behind as unfinished business, cast aside regrets and trivial things, say the things you have to say, share the things you have share and live your journey to the end.

    May your strength keep you,

    Steve

  • Hi Terry

    I'm gutted to hear of your news. I know I can't offer you anything more than support. I know from my own experiences that keeping everything to yourself isn't good for you or your nearest and dearest. Getting your family and friends involved will give you the chance to assess and deal with what your body is telling you without trying to hide it.

    My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow".

  • Terry, thanks for sharing and please try to enjoy the rest of your life (no matter how long), only last week my 38 year old much loved godson collapsed and died playing football, which only reminded me to say each day 'make the most of what I have today' with love and prayers for peace.
