Angry Hello

Been awhile since I've viewed VB. I have been a bit in the weeds. Was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer after not feeling well and having surgery. Cancer got into some lymph nodes. Will be doing chemo for 6 months. I had my first 2 weeks ago and it totally exhausted me. I get infusions every 2 weeks at the hospital plus a "take home" pump that runs for 2 days. Cancer sucks!

Welcome back to VB although I wish it was under better circumstances. I'm so sorry you're going through this, cancer really sucks. You're taking all the steps you can to get better and I hope you start feeling better soon.

Hi @buddadragon . I'm sorry to hear this. You're in my prayers.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I didn't have the pleasure of talking to you before, but welcome back. I am glad you're seeking treatment for the cancer and not turning to some of the pseudoscience which pervades the wider vegan community.
