hello again my first name is kathy,went to pulmonologist yesterday,waste of time and money"just nonsmall cell,means it isn't small cell."then said really didn't need to see him again,but on way home received message from his receptionist that i had return appt in 3 months!my husband wants second opinion on it all. guess i'll start checking into that
thanks to all for welcoming me. my phys. never have said specific as in adeno or squamous.just that i was not candidate for surgery maintence only tx. i and my husband and family very firm believers in optimistic thoughts,i still become very scared and lonely at times.i have appt. in a.m. with pulmonoloogist will ask for specifics.you would think being a nurse i wouldn't be so confused but it is entirely different. i miss my work,can'really find a volunteer group to get in with that doesn''t require a commitment of time and some days really don't have energy to do more than read ,nap.don't mean to sound so depressing,sorry. i really am blessed and realize this.how do you add hx to this? again thanks.
