    I was diagnosed with lower GI cancer stage 2 2 weeks ago, I tell you it sure changed my view on life, I've lost my job
    and my self esteem, I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared, but as I reflect on life { I'm only 29}
    I realize the simple thinks are often over looked or taken for granted, Like a good shave I savor every shave I take like its my last, I am going for an operation to remove the cancer on the 18th of this month I am scared
    What I am trying to say is enjoy life any way you can because you never know when it will end

    "enjoy every sandwich"

    god bless

    I pray everything goes well and that some day you can look back and reflect on it from the other side.

    I'm 75 had a mild heart problem a year ago, I know what you are feeling, when you get better your feelings will change back to when you were healthy. Too bad it happened so young, but it will make you strong for the next 100 years. Good luck to you and get back to us when you recover.

    It is normal to be afraid, use the resources available to you and stay strong.

    Best wishes. Luckily they caught it early so you will get through it.

    My mother had cervical cancer that they caught at stage 2 as well. It was not a fun road, but she just celebrated 2 years cancer free.

    Tyler, I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It is surely a time of testing for you. If you know the Lord, you are definitely not alone. I will pray for your situation. May God bless you and encourage you through all of the things you are about to undergo. Let the docs do their work. Take the time to heal.

    I'm very sorry to hear about the news. My father was diagnosed with intestinal cancer at stage two himself. Don't give up hope and fight every day to conquer it. We may have not met in person but know that you are in my thoughts.

    @Tylervanstone, I'm glad you decided to join us here at TSD. If you weren't scared, I'd wonder if you were sane. I see by your closing of your message, you also place your faith in God, that is good and wise. I've prayed for you and will continue to pray for your heath, peace and strength in your faith. May God continue to bless you daily.

    Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Good news is it sounds like they caught it fairly soon? Not to mitigate what you are going through but I was there 7 years ago. I had just turned 29 and was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease. We had just had our 2nd baby and everything seemed so uncertain and scary.

    If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. My treatment was different, but I vividly remember the build up to and diagnosis.

    I also wish you the best and will send prayers your way as well.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. No wonder you are scared. Perhaps this will help: The doctors that will be treating you are highly trained professionals. These exceptionally skilled folks will be using every last bit of their abilities and going all out to cure you. Not to mention the pharmaceutical and technological advances now found in modern hospitals.

    Good luck! I said some prayers for you, for whatever that is worth. I hope the surgery goes amazingly well and you make a full recovery.
