Living with Stage 4 Liver Cancer

Posted by cu2 @cu2, May 17 2:13pm

Has anyone been diagnosed with Liver Cancer, I'm just seeking knowledge and my emotions are all over the place. Everyday is a gift and I will forever be Grateful, Thankful and Blessed 🙌

@cu2, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. What a lovely picture of you. I'll hope you'll add it to your profile.

Being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer is tough. No wonder your emotions are all over the place. While Michelle @wifemom3 has a different type of cancer (colorectal), I'd like to bring her into this discussion as she was recently diagnosed with stage 4. Like you, she's looking for support and, at the same time, brought hope and blessings into her first post here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/hi-stage-4-here/

Cu2, is this a new diagnosis for you? Will you have treatments? What are your blessings today?

cu2, I was moved by your post title. Living. If you share nothing else, this statement says it all. Living, in spite of this disease.

Thank you for sharing your image. How beautiful. ❤️

Praying for you today.

Hi. As mentioned above I am @wifemom3. And I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with mets to the lungs. And I agree, my emotions are all over the place. And at times at different places at the same time. It is so hard to grasp much less process the diagnosis. My best advice is, be kind to yourself. Do what you can. And take one day at a time. My therapist has encouraged me to think of 3 things every day to be grateful for. It is hard not to focus on what is before us. Metastatic disease is the diagnosis but not who we are. We are warriors from different backgrounds supporting and uplifting each other.
Have a positive and uplifting day today.
