  1. I would like to second Ry's post. Those last wishes go double for you Ry.
  2. I thought there was something wrong with my shoulder, like a torn tendon. It was the CT that diagnosed the lung cancer.
  3. I'm here! I've been in PT since March to build muscle and have a CT this Friday. Otherwise... status quo
  4. I thought lung cancer was already responsible for more deaths than breast cancer in women? Interesting about the herbs. I hope they lead to some quick meds.
  5. There are many different studies going many different ways. Some studies of late have shown that antioxidants do not necessarily protect cancer from chemo as many oncologists believe. My oncologist is fine with the diet and excercise part of the alternative/complementary path, but will not allow supplements while on chemo.

    Ry, My heart breaks for you. I know this is a tremendous loss for you and your family. You will all be in my prayers. Lisa
  7. There are a few posts on this in the alternative med forum. I think there may be some validity in the nutrition aspect of the diet. Some believe the restrictions are a bit harsh.
  8. I agree, this is very exciting. Be careful to check with your doc before taking the supplements that are out there though, because they interact with some meds and can cause bleeding or gi problems in the wrong combinations.
  9. Welcome Colleen! I hope you and NED have a long and happy time together.
  10. Linzy, I understand the fear. Even considering cancer is scary. Also remember, that even if it is inoperable lung cancer, many of us continue to do very well and stay stable for many years with all of the new treatments they are discovering. Keep positive and keep us posted.
  11. awesome! thanks for the heads up!
