Single Status Update
It was so encouraging for me to read that you are a Stage 4 adenocarcinoma survivor. You are the first person that I have connected with who shares this diagnosis with me. I know there are others out there, but I have not crossed their paths. I have had my lower left lung lobe removed (VATS) and my upper right lung lobe removed (open chest surgery), and then three rounds of chemo. My follow-up CT in March was clear. I will have CT's every 3 months for two years. I would really like to connect to other survivors and also people who have had the thoracotomy surgery. Thanks for being willing to share your knowledge and encouragement.
This site was my beacon of hope in a very dark moment of my life. Donna and Tom are both LONG term survivors, and they were treated years ago when we didn't have the options we have now.
I'm also on the 3 month protocol for CTs; my next scan is next week. I made it a year after surgery before my recurrence, so I'm hoping i'm good for a while longer.
I'm on here (usually) on a daily basis. Glad you found us.
