No sugarcoating it, the prognosis is a bit too overwhelming for me. 😰 What questions did you ask your medical team to get a grasp on your prognosis? How did you handle the uncertainty, and any tips for someone trying to wrap their head around what the future holds?

      The prognosis was not so overwhelming for me. The fear of relapse, recurrence is haunting me night and day.

      I was so overwhelmed too. I just needed to know, 'What should I expect in the next few months?' My cats were my comfort - they sense when you’re down, you know? Find comfort in the little things

      I felt the same. Asked my doctor, 'What's next?' and 'How does this change my life?' To deal with it, I started walking at night. It’s quiet, peaceful. Helps to clear the mind. it's okay to feel lost sometimes.

"People asked their doctors about survival rates, treatment options, potential side effects of medications, the stage of the disease, and how prognosis is determined. They also inquired about clinical trials. To handle the uncertainty, they took it one step at a time, sought support, and even considered getting second opinions. Some found it helpful to ask about the goal of each treatment and to understand all the treatment options available for their condition. Others chose not to know anything about their prognosis and instead focused on finding support groups and chatting with other people facing similar situations."
