Dlynn1210's Recent CancerCompass Activity

  • Dlynn1210 has replied to a post on the message board

    Keep in mind that those on Cancer Compass are cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.  No one but a doctor is able to definitely assess your health.   When they say it looks like cancer it is "generally" because the mass has no defined lines and will appear somewhat jagged around the edges.  This does not mean it is cancer but cancer will not be perfectly round.  ...

        I'm with the So. Baptist Disaster Relief Team and since my bout with cancer, I have lectured more than a few people who I see in flood outs to wear masks.  I always take in extras so if we run into a hazardous situation, we can protect ourselves.  Also, several years ago I worked for a chemical company (office).  They found asbestos wrapping pipes and other materials.  I didn't know better and lef...

            I know how tough this is but people have lived for years with palative care.  Sweetheart, we all must face losing older loved ones some time in the future.  Just remember, the love never dies and God gives us memories that last forever!  Take the opportunity to make more good memories with your mother whenever possible.

                    Her oncologist would be the only one that could give you accurate information.  If it is a slow growing cancer, they may decide it is better at your mother's age to do pallative care.  Chemo is very hard on the body - and you don't ever get back to what you were before - and that is when we are younger and in fairly good health prior to diagnosis.  I know how difficul it is for anyone to lose&nbs...

                      The one thing to keep in mind is that IF IF IF it turns out to be cancer, head and neck cancers have an excellent prognosis.  If one has to be diagnosed with cancer, head and neck is the one to have because of the positive outcome.  It has been 7 1/2 years since I completed treatment and I am still clear of cancer.  I wish you the very best - we are a family on Cancer Compass but while w...

                      About Dlynn1210

                      Patient
                      Head and Neck Cancer, Tonsils Cancer

                      I am married and the mother of five grown children and 14 grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 2007 with SCC of the left tonsil and have been a member of CC since shortly after beginning treatment. I underwent chemo and radiation at CTCA in Zion, IL and received my last clean scan in Sept 2012. I found a wonderful support system on CC who really understood what I was going through and come back often to offer words of encouragement to those who are now traveling where I have been. I thank God daily for guiding me to CTCA and for guiding me to Cancer Compass. I had a tremendous support system with family and friends but there are not enough words to describe how I feel about my CC family other than to say I would not have made it through as well as I did without you.
