    • Whew!   I can imagine how relieved you both must be that chemo is over.  I will hope along with you that he keeps drinking water and eating and that you don't worry too much. And also that he is NED. Hang in there!!  Bridget O
    • Hello everybody I just like to give update on my husband. He has finished 4 rounds of chemo and I must say he handled it preety well except for being very tired and a couple times dehydrated but all and all he is fine. Radation made him tired also. He starts brain rad in 2 weeks for precaution. End of October he gets his cats can to see if all treatments worked. I'm praying that it did. I wish he didn't get small cell but it is what it is.I will be going back to work this coming week been off for 4 months and I'm hoping I don't worry to much and he keeps drinking water and eating right.between my cancer from last Dec and his it has taken a toll on me but I'm Ned and hopefully he will be too! Thank you for your support.  Michele
    • Hi everybody,  I had a lower right lobectomy a year ago (adenocarcinoma 1A) . A CT scan in May shoiwed NED and some fluid in the space, which was described as normal. I was told that fluid  will fill in the space where the lobe was and that eventually the remaining lung will expand somewhat into the space .Since my surgery, off and on I've had a sensation  or sound of fluid  in /around my lung when I breathe. In January I had bronchitis and during that the noise was loud enough that it could be heard by others. I think it was not exactly a wheeze but I'm not sure, because I don't have asthma and so haven't had experience with wheezing.  Now it's very slight, more a sensation than a sound and it comes and goes. It.seems like a slight swishing or maybe someting in the bronchial  tube. I  haven't been too concerned because I can breath OK, no problem. Has anybody else had this sensation of fluid as late as a year after surgery? I have a routine CT set for next month, and I'll talk to my pulmonologist about this then.  Bridget O
