  1. First Dx (1b) , June 2003. Surgery (ULL) and chem. 2nd Dx (1b), Nov 2004 (URL). Although the two occurrences were about 18 mo. apart, doctors finally decided it was two separate instances rather than mets to the second lung. Last CT showed no changes. It was caught early. I was very lucky.

    Not so lucky: Uterine cancer dx'd April 4, 2012, stage 3 .


  2. I'm still here, too! I was diagnosed in May 2003 with Stage 1b NSCLC. Surgery (Upper Right lobe) and chemo . Eighteen months later the cancer returned to my upper Left lobe. Stage 1b, surgery, and chemo again. I've been free of that cancer since the second surgery. However, there are many kinds of cancer. Now I'm fighting stage 4 uterine cancer.

    I feel lucky to have survived lung cancer for so long.


  3. It's warm and cozy (and cloudy and windy) here. Expecting temps in the mid-80s. :lol:

    Nice work with your bird, Janet. That takes a lot of patience. I'm hoping your scan is ok and that you get into the trial you are waiting to hear about. Let us know about both.

    Happy weekend to all.


  4. Why do the CT without contrast? Will the next one be with contrast? Why not go directly to a PET scan in four weeks?

    Denise, it's been 9+ years for me and most of that time has been "maybe/maybe no." So sorry you have to go through this now.


  5. Right Eric! I really, really dislike heavy metal music - don't even understand how it can be called music.

    The liver transplant: Youngest son was the donor and middle son the recipient. Donor is out of the hospital and doing well. Recipient has moved from hospital room to the rehab. section and, also, is doing quite well. We've been quite fortunate.

    Six (four week) cycles of carboplatin and taxol, following robotic surgery (hysterectomy). It was a stage 3 cancer.


  6. Eric, I don't think you hooked the 19 pound salmon. You've never written about fishing - that I can remember - and, I believe the unit of measure in Scotland is not pounds.

    One of my sons recently had a liver transplant.

    I am currently receiving chemo for a cancer that is not lung cancer.

    I also like heavy metal music.
