    My new interest is learning as much about lung cancer as I possibly can to be sure I receive the best treatment for my type as well as stay on top of current development and potential new treatment options. I also need to develop a better understanding of coping mentally with this disease. I love gardening, hiking and have started practicing meditation.

  1. Thinking of you today Susanna. I found I had very little side effects from the immunotherapy I am on, Keytruda. Which one will you be taking?
  2. Thank you Michelle . Looks like we were diagnosed about the same time. So glad to hear you are doing well. I am glad I found all of you. It’s very promising to hear your friend has been doing well after 3 years on the same treatment plan as me. I look forward to staying connected with this group and learning as much as I can and to share what I learn. I have an MRI on the 30th followed by a PET on June 17th. I stay optimistic because I feel good but find it difficult to not think every ache and pain I have isn’t progression. How do you/I get through that!?!? I am sure we all go through this. I live in near San Francisco and attend monthly meetings at the Bonnie J. Addario lung cancer foundation and find it so informative...thank goodness for these forums it’s what gets us through this. I am not sure how to reply to the individual responses. This format is a little different than I am used to. Thank you to Curt and Steff for your reply’s and encouragement. thank you!!
  3. Good morning. I am new to this group. I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer last August 2018. Mets to brain, bone and adrenal gland. First line treatment was cisplatin, alimta and keytruda. Started maintenance in January so now on alimta and keytruda with someday every 3 months. Still processing all of this and trying to stay informed and educate myself. I feel great with no symptoms. After treatments I feel tired which leads to emotion, which is the only time I am reminded I have cancer. I remain optimistic however sometimes overwhelmed at how much information there is out there and how to stay on top of all of it. Hoping I can help others stay optimistic while at the same time looking to share experiences and learn from this group. Thanks for listening ♥️
