I was just wondering if anyone else on the planet has ever heard of speen cancer? Is it as rare as they tell me? What happens if they remove your spleen and tell you afterwards it was cancer? What if you have all the symptoms so they diagnose you, but every test you take says that there is most definetly something wrong with you, but they aren't sure what it is, it may not be cancer? What happens to your body when your spleen is removed, are there any long term affects? I have a million and one questions that I need answered and when I talk to my Oncologist she answers but I never have any idea what she's talking about. I am so frustrated, confused, and terrified. I feel like an idiot when it comes to this stuff and I have no one to talk to. I even went to the library and tried doing some research on the subject but couldn't understand anything I read. I also don't understand why even when I'm feeling good I have to be poked and prodded and given treatments! They say they got it all, so why is there still such a concern and why are some symptoms still there? I don't know, anymore! I'm at my wits end! I was kinda hoping maybe someone on here might have the same thing or been misdiagnosed or something. I just want someone to talk to who can make some sense of this for me. I feel so alone.

  • If you want to find something in English, do a Google. That is how I found you. I have had two pneumonias. Then the Xrays and the mis-read CAT Scan. It is a shame that in this part of your life you have to learn a new profession and language. Good luck. jb
