in feb 2012 i was diagnosed with renal cell cancer in my left kidney . it was a 14cm tumour and i had the kidney removed and a few complications later i am at home and hopefully recovering BUT i cant get the fear of it returning out of my mind. my scans for last 18 months have been clear but that dosnt make me feel any better i am still terrified that it will return and as seen as i had no symptoms before i am afraid that if it does return i wont know till my 6 monthly scan. i am under doctor for anxiety and depression and am on fluoxetine . i want to know is this normal to be this terrified cos atm i fear even leaving the house i am that bad? my doc says i need to get a job volunteering but i cant face people atm so that wont help and i get no benefits at all cos wife works part time so finding it harder and harder to make ends meet
