I'm sorry you're going through all of this. Life truly isn't fair. Sending good thoughts your way.
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 6 years NED). Is this real life?

I finished my 30th radiation yesterday and my 6th Carbotaxol the previous week.
All said it wasn't too bad. Not as bad as the Gemcitibine in the first treatment. Now I start the follow ups. The medical oncologist starts Monday next week and the radiation oncologist in mid-December ( after 3 months). I'm not so naieve as to think that this is all I have to do. NSCLC is notoriously hard to shake off.
sandy, my SIL finishes her breast cancer chemo today. She's had a much harder run of it. First very low neutrophils and then persistent UTIs.
All the best to everyone. Keep on keeping on.

G'day Wayne,
Sounds like they are treating you fairly aggressively, I hope it is doing its job. I had a scope in April. Four polyps from 4 mm to 11mm developed in the last three years. I had to have some internal staples for the largest. No cancer but some mild displaysia in the larger ones. My type 2 diabetes has decided to ramp up . My HbA1c has been steady at around 48 for years but the last test it jumped to 73. Nothing in my lifestyle has changed I suspect it may be the occasional hit of prednisone I have been prescribed to curb auto-immune hepatitis. I'm still on cyclosporine twice a day for auto-immune nephrotic syndrome of the kidneys. I am still working but it is betting harder. All the best Ron.
