    Susanrae reacted to DFK in WHY DO WE KEEP FIGHTING THE INEVITABLE?   
    Interesting thoughts.
    I suppose you would probably get more banter if you weren't on a website called LUNGEVITY, 
    as in LONGEVITY, 
    as in long life,
    as in the will to live,
    as in self preservation,
    as in finding value in my current life despite my cancer, 
    as in not fighting but utilizing science to improve the quality of my life,
    as in my disease can be currently controlled,
    as in not being powerless and nothing is inevitable until the fat lady sings,
    as in believing in hope,
    as in believing and looking forward to tomorrow,
    as in believing in joy when I see the innocence and wonder in my grandchildren’s eyes,
    as in the absolute beauty of every sunrise and the privilege of participating in that,
    as in riding a bike along a beautiful ocean coastline,
    as in the thanks and gratitude I feel every single day to be living,
    as in I will probably be the first in line to agree that life is a complex difficult process,
    as in I still want to live as long as my quality of life outweighs the challenges of medicine and my participation in it. 
    Comedy-drama 2019 Movie PADDLETON addresses some of your thoughts.
    Take Care, DFK

    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.

    Welcome Ronda!  Yes this site is a god send.  It sure has been for me.  I'm a 62-year-old grandmother of 3.  In April of 2019 I was diagnosed with stage 4 NSCLC with brain mets.  I had my brain tumor removed in April and so far all MRIs have been clean!  I started Keytruda the end of May 2019.  My August scan showed lung tumor reduction but my early November scan showed lung tumor growth; so carboplatin and Alimta have also been added to my regimen.  Very glad to have you aboard!  You will gain invaluable knowledge from the members.  I don't know what I would have done without this support system!!  You take care now.  Susan Rae

    Hi ya lady. You're too funny and your story sounds familiar.
    We are in the sticks 75 miles North of Sacramento, where we chose treatment for the same reason as you did.
    Wow, I wouldn't wanna give up my sleep number for M-F treatment outta town. Our 100 lb and our 85 lb puppies wouldn't like us being gone either. That's another reason I opted for once a month treatment rather than every three weeks like doc wanted.
    I am 5' even and always weighted around the 110 range and was a strict vegan since 2009. Bring on treatment and I dropped to 95 lbs. Doctor said eat everything and anything ya want. Do whatever ya want and enjoy as much as you can. So I did. AND boy howdy did I go for it.😜😁
    It was a green light for me to eat everything and I did. Now I'm suffering from a tummy that rolls over (which I've never experienced before) and am up to 126.
    Now I'm like, I really like food and have developed the bad habit of late night eating before bed that I gotta stop but so enjoy....lol
    Gosh, thank you. Sitting here typing this, sharing it with my husband and laughing is such a blessing and so uplifting. You Rock sister, diggin it for sure.
    Wishing ya well 🌻👾🌻
     
  25. Thanks
    Susanrae got a reaction from Rower Michelle in Started chemo: Alimta and carboplatin Wednesday, 11.13   
    So far I am tolerating the chemo combo well.  No nausea or fatigue.  Finished the steroids yesterday and also walked our white lab and hopped on the exercise bike so I slept well last night, about 8 hours where the previous 2 nights were about 5 hours.  Thanks for the info Michelle!  Your posts are always informative and much appreciated.  Susanrae
