This diagnosis has impacted my life tremendously.

I am still going back in my mind thinking about what could have happened to prevent this second diagnosis. Is it something the doctors DIDN’T do, is it something I was suppose to do OR NOT to do after I was told I was “CANCER FREE”?.... These questions play in my head daily.

I am married with children and grandchildren, and I can’t bear the thought of not being here with them. My PCP asked my husband to inquire from my Oncologist what my prognosis looks like. I told him to not ask that question. If given a timeframe, that would devastate me. I’m still working and living my life the way I did before the diagnosis, but it most certainly is a “new norm.”
