    • Michele, I'm so glad that your cancer was caught early and that you were able to have the VATS surgery.  My first cancerversary is this week.  I've had (knock on wood) good scans but the fear, worry, and anxiety are always with me.  Both the week leading up to my scan and the time between scan and results is terrible; I'm deep in scanziety.  I go through the "what if" scenarios in my mind.  I've learned to find tasks that keep me busy.  But, yes, each new pain or twitch makes me wonder.    You'll have to find what keeps you centered and focus on that when you find your mind wandering.    
    • Hi CarlaAnn.  I was on the same chemo/steroid regimen that you are on.  My doc told me that insomnia might be a factor because of the steroids.  I don't recall having issues with insomnia, but I was also taking an anti-nausea med that knocked me out at night.  What some doctors fail to realize is that we all react differently to the chemo and ancillary drugs.  Hope your next chemo cycle goes more smoothly.
    • My sister and I will be there! I'm new to the forums but this will be my third year attending the hope summit. I was dx in April 2014 with stage IV NSC Adeno. Hope to see you there,.. If you see us (we are twins) make sure to say hi!
