Stage 4 liver cancer & depression

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been battling stage 4 liver cancer for 5 years & now I'm getting depressed. The treatments make me sick. I'm having pain on my right side & my doctors tell me I have a bad gaw bladder & nothing can be done about it. I want to continue working but I can't find a job. I am really depressed & lonely. Sometimes I wonder if I'm losing my mind.

    Hi larry,

    Sick gallbladders can be surgically removed, or managed through diet. do you know if you have gall stones or a malfunctioning gallbladder?

    i am so sorry that you have depression. It seems like a tough road you are traveling, but so long as we breathe, there is hope. Do you have someone you can talk to? For therapy or just to get things off your chest?? A support system is so important, even for those who aren't sick. Even moreso for those of us who are.

    So sorry I've been try to think how i can help.have you thought about doing some sort of voluntary work.I f you live near a salvation army, call in and ask to see the officer in charge, you will be given a warm welcome and someone to talk to.And probably find you some voluntary work.

    You don't have to be a Christian anyone can call in.

    I'm supprised you can have any help with your gall bladder problems.
