    Susanrae reacted to Susan Cornett in CT results   
    Got my scan results today and I remain NED! I've been cancer free for 18 months. So, to those of you who are new or scared or both, know this: I was diagnosed as a stage IV patient 4 years ago. You can do this.

    Yes I actually had surgery too to cut the tumor out.  I also had cyberknife to "zap" any remaining tumor with radiation in any of the margins.

    Hi Bev V,  I am from Minnesota also, close to Rochester.  You have found a good place to relay your concerns, thoughts, and anything else.  There are a lot of good people on this site to help you navigate the storm of lung cancer.  It is a hard pill to swallow, but this the people on this site are a God send and make it easier to handle.  Sending good vibes, positive thoughts and many prayers your way for your lobectomy.  Take care now.  Susan Rae

    Thanks to all who have replied to my post. I had my 3rd and final SBRT radiation treatment on January 23rd. My radiation oncologist told me not to expect how well (not if) the radiation treatments worked for at least 3 to 6 months. I have been having PET scans every three months while on  Keytruda and Atlimta and expect to have one the last week of February. I will post the findings at that time even though the radiation probably will not have done it's job by then.
    I wish I would have found this site when first diagnosed last year. It really helps to hear from those who are going through the same life changing situations.

    Robb,
    You don't really "say it like it is", but rather you "say it like you see it".  Yes, none of us is immortal, but you are way offtrack in your pessimistic view of life.  Frankly, I wonder why you bother coming to a forum where people give each other hope and support.  It seems your time here is wasted and, frankly, for people that come here for support, understanding and hope you are anything but a positive contributor of anything they need.  My recommendation would be that you find a forum more to your philosophy and liking where your views would be both welcomed and appreciated.  I, personally, am finding your posts to be counter-productive to the mission of this forum.
    Let me repeat, I don't believe we are immortal, but many here are living good lives, filled with love, family and friends because of the treatments, support and hope brought to their lives.  If you don't believe you can be a contributor in that sense please find a place more to your liking.

    Hi Woco, I was treated with 3-week cycles of Keytruda for about 6 months; although I never had problems with headache.  Hopefully you can find some relief from those.  Take care now.  Susan Rae

    Barb,
    I always relive my less than happy holiday season memories while in treatment. This year was no exception. But my wife reminded me I’m alive to have the remembrance.  We celebrated with an early afternoon movie date and stuffing afterwards at Waffle House. It was memorable.
    Stay the course.

    Holidays bring an equal amount of joy and sorrow.  For some more of one than the other.  It can be a tough time of year for some.  I hope yours is filled with mostly Joy.
