    Hello DrBee.  I was diagnosed at 50 with Stage 3B lung cancer. I had months of chemo , radiation, then finally was able to have my right upper lobe removed.  After the plan had been more chemo for weeks.  I am going to celebrate my 71st birthday on August the 4th.  I pray that treatment starts soon with a great plan and that he responds to it with great results.
    Keep us posted on how it is going.

    Bacchus,  welcome.   Wow it has not been even 2 weeks since they found this.  So glad they were able to jump right in with radiation,
    I lived twice in Louisiana. the first time in Slidell and the second in Abita Springs.  They have some good hospitals there.  I am waiting to hear from you
    how he responds and if he can fill that left  lung up with some good air .

    Welcome Susan ,  so glad you found us.  You have now met more lung cancer survivors !   
    I was diagnosed Stage3 on December 3 , 1997.   Like you I started with chemo and radiation, had a lobe of lung removed 
    and then had more chemo.  Here I am nearly 21 years later talking to you.  Back then they did  not test for much that they can now.
    When will they do a scan again to see how you are doing ?   Hope and positivity is a good thing for sure.  Please keep us posted on
    how you are doing.

    Hi Susan, 
    Welcome, and I am so glad you found us.  Boy you have made a lot of friends here already.  glad they tested for EGRF.
    Spine surgery is challenging to get over.  Keep working at it.   So you have pills and radiation to look forward to.  When I  had
    treatment with chemo I had a lot of problems with nausea, and I lost weight.  They encouraged me to eat.  They would give me pudding, ice cream,
    jello etc.  I made it  --------   but all those sweets really gave me a bad habit.  After treatment I continued eating !   I gained weight and finally began to watch 
    what I ate and start an exercise program to get it off..  I still go to LA fitness here in Minnesota.  
    Keep us posted.

    Hello JLK , welcome..
    I was diagnosed with Stage 3b NSCLC  .  I had to have chemo and radiation but lucky for me they said it killed it so I could have surgery but 
    they did want me to have more chemo as a precaution after surgery.  I finished all that in the spring of 1998 !   I am still here.   Please keep us 
    posted on how you are doing.  Feel free to ask questions

    Thanks for the update.  Louise he is blessed to have you with him on this tough journey.   Good news that he is doing well after surgery.
    They  should be able to tell you soon if it is 2A or 2B.   Then  the chemo plan will be put in place when he recovers from surgery.
    Best wishes to him and you.

    Hello Stephanie, glad you found us.  Lung cancer is always a sad story and a lot to cope with.  So glad you are getting great care and 
    from people you know and care about you.  Sounds like you are responding well to your treatment.  Are they planning anything for those 2 remaining brain mets?
    Are you having any symptoms from them ?   I am sure this is also challenging for your family also.  Please keep us posted on how you are doing.  Feel free to ask 
    questions also.

    Hello Eileen.  I am 70 years old.  I was born and raised in Boston.  ( Roslindale)   
    I am glad to hear you have an appointment with a pulmonologist to make plans I hope for a biopsy.  
    If it turns out positive I pray they start treatment quickly.  This is possible to beat.  I have survived over 20 years.
    Please keep us posted on how your journey is going..
