    Donna G got a reaction from Iggy in Starting treatment next week for NSCLC   
    Hi Iggy.  Welcome.  I had Stage 3B NSC lung cancer.  I started with 2 chemos and daily radiation..  
    then I was able to have a lobe of lung removed.  The plan was for more chemo after also.  
    I was diagnosed in December 1997.  I am still here welcoming you.  Keep us posted on how you are 
    doing and feel free to ask questions.

    Hi Judi,  welcome.   I will be 73 on August 4th.  I was diagnosed when I was 50.  I had Stage 3B  lung cancer.  
    I love your attitude.  Positive attitude is really helpful to your body .  Prayer is also great medicine.  There was no immunotherapy 23 yrs ago.
    It is wonderful all the "new" options that are available now.  Please keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Donna G got a reaction from LouT in Boyfriend recently diagnosed with Stage 3A NSCLC   
    Hello Troy's girl friend. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 B in December 1997.  My Doctor gave me 2 chemo s and daily radiation for several months . 
    The tumor had shrunk , so they did surgery and  as it was planned, it was followed by more chemo.  As you can guess as I am able to give you this message, all was successful
    and I survived.  Please keep us posted on how you two are doing.

    My husband was a Navy Veteran .  He was a Sonar man.  He entered the Navy in 1963 and served until 1977.  
    After this he worked Military contracts until 2012.  He was active in the American Legion and the VFW.
    He is at Fort Snelling National Cemetery .  One day I will be with him again ____there in the grave next to him.
    He was a wonderful caring person to those he served with, worked with , and family, and friends.

    Donna G got a reaction from Tom Galli in Hypoxia Means What Exactly   
    I saw that news story also.  Being a retired RN I was very surprised that you could have an O2 sat of only 50 and not feel short of breath !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If we had a patient that low we would be very.  very worried     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!    To think it could block that feeling in your brain !
    I have and always have had a thermometer.  Never thought of buying an Oximeter as they suggested.

    Hi Bev 
    Besides lung cancer we have something else in common. Minnesota.
    You live north of the cities, I live south of the cities.
    I hope this descent weather continues a while.  Sure will make it easier for you
    and your family to get to the hospital.  Keep us posted on how you are doing.
