Artie, I so understand. My son, Nathan, 25 had surgery for Testicular Cancer in January as he has 3 types of cancer cells and one is an aggressive one. He had 4 rounds of chemotherapy after the surgery, and today he goes for 3 Cat Scans to see if he has tumors in his lungs or abdominal areas as it has been over six months since his surgery. I hope all goes well for your son, as I do for mine. Cancer is a horrible disease, because it doesn't care.

Praying for you. Have you ever thought of going for advice from alternate medicine sources?

God Bless.

My son is 34 yrs old. A couple of years ago he moved back in to live with us because of personal problems. In January they (drs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in NYC) removed a soft tissue sarcoma from his arm. Right after the surgery they were confident that it had all been removed and the follow up scans in March were clear.

He went back last week for another follow up and they discovered it has metasticized to his lungs. We went back to MSK for a needle biopsy yesterday and are expecting the results early part of the week.

We've been told that he'll be undergoing some chemo and most likely surgery to remove the cancers and affected parts of the lungs.

I'm mostly numb. It's like a bad dream and I keep hoping that I'll wake up and everything will be fine. I've researched the web and nothing about this seems promising. I'm trying to be optimistic, but it's so hard.

Take one day at a time, keep putting one foot in front of the other. Don't look back except to see how far you have come. Take comfort in the expressions of caring from loved ones and strangers alike. Most importantly, believe in yourself. You have the strength to withstand any storm.
