Thoughts/Prayers for my wife please.

We just found out today that my wife has breast cancer. The doctor says we caught it early, but who knows.

After all she went through with me in the hospital, she sure as hell doesn't need this.

Thanks!
Jim

Scary shit man. Cancer treatment and internal medicine is better than ever. Don't take any shit from the doctors and if you don't feel like something is right speak up.

Tough news. Fingers crossed for you and the family. As Nick said - treatments are out of this world right now. My Mom's been in full remission for nearly 10years. Catching it early was the key. Keep your hopes up.

A friend of the.family was diagnosed last week. I think of it this way. She can fight the fight, or roll over and let it win. Tell her to kick the crap out of it. God bless your family.

Glad they caught it early. Treatments now make this a lot easier to take care of than ever before.

Keep the positive energy going towards her. More than half the battle is in not giving up. Focus on living a good, full life.

I'll be sending thoughts and good tidings.

Yeah, this sucks to hear.

My wife has had 3 cousins with breast cancer. One passed away from it, one is still in treatment and one is ignoring the problem.

The best advice that I can give is to live as normal life as possible. Do the things that you really want to do and roll with the punches. Hopefully it is all smooth sailing and it gets fixed up in a hurry, but if not, you do not want to look back with any regrets.

I can't stress THIS enough. Also if she isn't comfortable with the treatment plan, get a 2nd opinion. Hell get a 3rd opinion. This is her body, her recovery she should have final say in her treatment plan.

My "cousin" got the same news last friday 11/11/11. I sent her these pictures, to remind her that she can fight like a girl and beat this. Same for your wife. Our prayers are with her.

Prayers sent bro. Man it's been a bad year for you. But like the other guys said while you guys feel it's the end of the world they caught it early and now kick it's ass and go on living a normal life. She can and will beat it!!!
Stay positive and yet give her that reassurance you'll do what ever it takes for her. She needs your emotional
Strength and support right now.

yup

+1

I was coming in here to call you a sally and say htfu for her. She is going to lean on your strength BIG time.

"
shit sucks and sadly this happened to you, but it's not going to disappear. We are going to have to change some things around but life is still life and lets live it happily
"

naturally phrase that how you would say that. The people that were treating it with fear and softly were more stressed vs those that came to terms and moved past it as just another day.

Stay strong for her and the family and don't let the family project their fears and negativity on her as that will drag her down quickly.

every once in awhile take a breathe in. hold. Breathe out and tell yourself to be strong. Gluck

Thanks everybody!

She's in the medical field, and she knows the specialist she's getting referred to, so she's happy about that. We'll know more about the action plan tomorrow after her consultation. Her doctor will most likely take an aggressive path.

Her Mom just went through this earlier this year, so it hit her pretty hard today.
