  1. Thank you for posting this, Lauren ... I just found it by accident when I googled my name for something else
  2. Hi Shirley, It is absolutely normal to get scared, angry and tired of it at times. No one can be positive all the time and one of my pet peeves is "oh attitude is everything", etc. etc. It is not. Obviously the better the attitude the better the days are but we have to real and acknowledge all our feelings. And no one should feel guilty or bad or anything when they have down phases. Most people don't know what to say to us and sometimes ask questions or say something that may not feel good to us, all part of this journey. Sending you well wishes ..... Alisa 15 year Survivor
  3. Hi Teri, I didn't have my whole lung removed but I know of 3 people who did and they are all doing fine now. I'm going to share your post on my FB page and share it privately with my friend who had her whole lung removed. Hopefully she will give you some input. The fact that the doctors feel surgery applies is a good thing! Warmly, Alisa
  4. Hello everyone! It has been years since I've posted, but I have been keeping up with the Facebook Message Boards. I am wondering if anyone knows anything at all about this blood test for lung cancer. Does anyone know any hospitals in the US working with the Early CDT test? I couldn't find any in my online search. Thanks! http://www.earlycdt-lung.co.uk/patient

    Ivanhoe Article

    Hi guys, it's been a long time since I've been on the message board. I've been connecting mainly through LUNGevity and Hope Summit Facebook page, but wanted to share this interesting article with you all. From previous board messages, I know many of us are taking PSP/PSK Corliolus Versicolor Mushroom as adjuvant therapy for lung cancer. This article is about a dog who was treated successfully for cancer with PSP. I've been on PSP since my diagnosis 14 years ago. I was going to put in under the Alternative Treatment thread, but it's not really alternative (and one should let their doctor k
  6. Hey Janet, I am so sorry to hear how badly you've been feeling. But I'm more sorry to hear you feel like you are failing or quitting. Your body knows when you need a rest. It takes a fighter to know that too. Can you take a little break to get some strength back and then start up again? Is that the plan?

  8. Judy, I get it!!!! I wish I could write down my feelings like you do, but that would mean I'd have to deal with them Thank you for posting this.

    Scan Results

    Hello cyber family, I haven't been on the boards for a while, between time constraints and recent losses, it's been hard for me to get here. But I just went for my scan - I usually get scanned every 6 months even though the doctor recommended a yearly schedule now, but after 8 months I couldn't take the anxiety of waiting, so I went - and I wanted to share my good news to give others hope. It's been 11 years since surgery and my last chemo treatment and I am still NED (No Evidence of Disease for any newbies) !!!!! I thank God every day for this blessing.
