I had a long drawn out reply to post and lost it somehow ...that's ok

just want all to know I'm with you 150% we have to hang in there... everyday someone gives THAT LOOK "how are you ?" I just tell them not dead yet - I'll call them first !! I was feeling sorry for myself earlier - then after writing that first reply that was all boohoo- I was glad I lost it ... I don't want to be that kind of person -- I want to stay upbeat and positive ( although we all know that's not the easiest sometimes )

Don't know about the rest of you but I COUNT ON ALL OF YOU TO HELP ME DO THAT !! AND THANK YOU SOOOOOOO VERY MUCH.(':D')(':lol:')(':)')

love ya guys

Roger,

You just keep a positive attitude, stay active and keep the faith and you will beat this disease. Our Lord doesn't give us any more than we can handle. Just give it to Him and keep up the good fight. We are all here to root you on and support you...

God Bless and prayers,

Karen

Hello all from Arkansas

I took my last Chemo on April 4th 2006 and was told to come back for a cat scan in August. I have an appointment with the medical oncologist the first week in September. He said regardless of what the cat scan says there will be no more treatment. As far as he is concerned all has been done that can be done. My last cat scan showed the cancer to be gone except for a small trace which could be dead cells.

I'm 73 years old and also have emphysema. My lungs now are functioning at less than 40%

A bout with pneumonia a month ago did nothing to help. I followed that with a hernia operation 10 days after getting out of the hospital for the pneumonia.

Wondering if I'll ever get my strength back? :?

Welcome to you Bluemax14,

Glad to hear your doing so well! Sorry you had the need to look us up, but I'm very glad you did. Lots of wonderful people here at LCSC.

Yes, you'll get your strength back. That chemo can and does knock us on our butts! :roll: To say the least!

You'll notice in a few months that you should be starting to perk up some. It's a slow road to recovery, so sit back, hang on, and just take it easy. :wink:

Holler if you have questions or if we can be of any help to you. We're more then willing to lend a helping hand.

I wanted to reiterate Connie's message to all LC survivors that quietly are part of the board to come out and say hello. I am new to lung cancer and have not started my treatments yet. Chemo and radiation planned for July 10th. The first two weeks before official diagnosis when my pulmonologist told me something did not look right on my CT scan and sent me for a PET then Biopsy, I was absolutely sure I was going to die quickly. All I could think about was Peter Jennings and Dana Reeve. As a mother of 3 kids that I still need to raise, I was falling apart and my family along with me. Luckily I have always loved my computer and the internet and started looking up "lung cancer" and I found this site and posted a message. The most wonderful people on this board must have noticed the despair in my post and I had so many messages of encouragement that I said to my husband a few days later "Maybe I won't die" and my attitude started changing. I am know ready for treatment and ready to fight this with my entire sicilian clan behind me to help me get through this. Anyhow, I couldn't feel as good as I do right now without the folks on this site who are willing to share their survival experience. Just knowing that each of you is here and alive gives me hope every day that I will see another day. Thank you to all of you that have come forward. I hope five years from now, that I will be helping someone else on this site who just was diagnosed and not sure what to expect.

Hugs to all

Lilly

I completely missed this one.

I may be one of the baby survivors since it hasn't been a year since I finished my tx. But I am still NED and will remain that way.
