Cancer FAQs

Hi there - here's hoping you are all well on this blustery Melbourne day.

I have posted a new page, called cancer FAQs, which will  hopefully answer some or many of the questions I have had from you wonderful readers.   It's over on the right.  

Go ahead, read.  There is happiness even in cancer, I promise you.


xoxo happy weekend!

Just read it. Excellent. I hope I never have the need to read it again. But, if I do, I'm glad you wrote your list.

Otherwise, I hope you're going okay. And not working too hard.

I've said it before: you're a good, good woman, Jane. x

Jane said...

Oh Jane. You are such an extraordinary soul. I admire you greatly. Thankyou for sharing this thoughtful and practical advice so openly. J x

I hope like hell I won't need this nor anyone I know and love, but I applaud you. Standing ovation even :)

Ah Jane. I was going to tell you to look on the bright positive side y'know...ha!

That was an excellent account of how the past year has been for you. Very tough.

I'm hoping you will stay cancer free and will continue to live a good life without always having to look over your shoulder. xx

Part of my job involves working with people with cancer. I loved your list but particularly loved point 11. Trying to be positive the whole time is just too damn hard and puts extra pressure on someone who is already stressed beyond belief. And no-one can think themselves well.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a well thought out and sensible list.

Take good care.

That is a really good list that you have compiled there, and I am sure that it will help a lot of people. I just pray that I will never have the need for it. Do hope that you are doing okay at the moment.

Well done, Jane. You are such a sensible and well-adjusted person that others will find that very useful. May I ask you a question? I'm wondering what, in the first place, made you go to the doctor who sent you for the MRI? Was it only the tiredness, or were there other symptoms? I remember you said ages ago that you hadn't found a lump, so I wondered what had caused your suspicion that something was wrong.

Jane said...

Hi Mise - I went for a mammogram and ultrasound as part of a general check up suggested by my doctor bevares she and I could both feel something was not quite right there.

I also had a lump I could feel and had had it for 4 years since breast feeding. I had already asked a doctor to look at that one but he said he couldn't feel it (!). So I didn't pursue it. I still don't know if that lump became cancer or was always cancer... But the lesson is don't listen to doctors listen to yourself.

Hi Jane,
You have dealt with your cancer with such a level head and dignity and with the most positive attitude and many can learn from you. It cannot be easy and, I'm sure that you have had many dark moments, but within your writing, there seems such a calmness.
I have read your Cancer FAQ's and think that it was a wonderful idea to write it. It is going to help many people.
Keep that wonderful attitude going and lots of love to you. XXXX

Hello sweet...I found myself thinking about your FAQs long after I finished reading them. You are a rare soul and your pragmatism is to be envied. Oh I wish the world were full of more people like you. Lou x

Deb said...

Wow Jane, That is excellent thing to do. I have related to so many of your points in your FAQ. I did the exact same thing with my results too, wanting to be prepared. I wish you a cancer free life ahead... Also thank you very much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment on my remission, it was lovely of you.
Take care xx
