    Question on port

    Hi Tom, Yes, all is going as expected in port land. It takes a few weeks to fully recover. My Mom had her port installed back in 2016 which she elected to retain after chemo. She doesn’t even realize it’s there any longer. Did you get the pre-treatment numbing gel? That’s a must do. One of the clever nurses on this forum discovered that you can put the gel on and then cover it with a the top of a prescription bottle and surgical tape. Keeps the mess to a minimum. Keep the fluid up on chemo day & skip coffee (it’s dehydrating). Good luck to you!

    Hi all. #21 done Thursday. Blood work ok. Just a little tired so made myself be lazy all weekend. Don’t know what it’s going to be like mentally after this is done.

    4 years!

    Today marks 4 years of survival! By most standards, my path hasn't been as difficult as others. There have definitely been highs - when my hair grew back, my lashes grew in longer - and lows - two recurrences and a secondary cancer diagnosis. But as I say often - I'M STILL HERE! I tell my story to anyone who will listen. People need to know that lung cancer doesn't have to be an automatic death sentence. Does it suck? Yes. Will it change your life? Definitely. But you move forward, one step at a time. Forward is forward ,no matter the speed. I am looking forward to the Breathe Deep Denton event in April. I enjoy visiting with the other survivors and bringing attention to this cause. I've also been asked to speak at a function in March so I'll be sharing my story again. The more the public understands lung cancer and all of its causes, the better our funding will be for research. Most importantly, though, is this: I stumbled across this site one night when I was looking for answers. I have met wonderful friends - in person and online - here. Those friends have made this journey easier. Thank you, all.
