Default looking forward

thank you for your response i will be looking forward for support in this matter sometimes things that are new to you scare you until you talk to someone who understands your situation i just need to stay strong because it is a little tough at my age to all of a sudden to get this but now i know i am surely not the only one going through.

thank you

Welcome Joe, sorry you are here. I was 56 when diagnosed, with a happy life ahead of me, married for 38 years and grandchildren popping out...then wham,,, I have learnt a lot and received a lot of support from this forum. Please use us as often as you need, at least you know we fully understand any of your problems. I hope we can give you some comfort.

Joe, If you don't mind me asking, what was your first symptom? Also have you had a second opinion?
