  1. My name is Valerie. I am 28 years old, and I was diagnosed with lung cancer at age 26. I went through chemo no problem. I didn't even get nauseous, and my hair never fell out. The only bad symptoms I had was that it gave me terrible heartburn and fever like symptoms for a few days after. The results were stable. I was then put on Tagrisso. It wasn't bad either but I had occasional nausea. However, my tumors grew, so we switched to Tecentriq, an immunotherapy. Ever since I've been on immunotherapy, after treatment, my anxiety, pain, and depression increases for about a week and a half. Before immunotherapy, I had slight chronic anxiety and no depression, but I had pain issues. Now, a week and a half after immunotherapy, I feel hopeless, and afraid. I have panic attacks 3-4 times a day, which requires medicine to relieve .I also need to take more painkillers, because the pain gets so intense. Then I'm back to "normal" after that. Does this only happen to me or do you get this too?

    Thanks addicts...

    I have argued ever sense this opioid "crisis" became a hot topic that the people who would pay the biggest price would be those in pain. Never thought I would soon be one of them and find out I was correct. Here I sit, in the dark, watching TV. No pain till I shift positions...then bam. Entire right side lights up in pain. When I take a pain pill per the directions it works for about 2 hrs....that means 4 more hrs of pain till I am suppose to take another. And the docs got me taking the minimum dosage at max time between per my research. 5 mgm every 6 hours (Oxycodone). Sooo..counting the pills and hoping I irritated something yesterday and with Ibro and oxy it will improve and I will make it till monday when I can once again beg for more. Really is stupid. There is ZERO reason for me to have pain. The pills work. Pisses me off. I'll survive the pain..I have a high tolerance because of my cluster headaches but that doesn't mean I should have to. Peace Tom
  3. I found this site by doing a general search so thought I’d try it out. I am a 55yr old woman with recurrence of lung cancer after 3.5 yrs remission; had chemo/radiotherapy last time. It’s assessed as T2N1M0, 7cm. Dr’s recommended (open) surgery. I already have a lot of nerve pain - due to crushed vertebrae in neck - which means my right arm/ hand is painful and numb (parathesia?) and doesn’t work properly and I have been reading about the similar chronic, persistent nerve damage pain the surgery can leave you with. I’ve decided against surgery but my surgeon didn’t mention post operative, persistent pain at all and it was only by reading about the surgery that I discovered about 50% of patients end up with it. It’s probably a higher % than is reported, too. I’d like to hear from people who’ve had open surgery and their experience with pain plus people who’ve had alternative to surgery treatment. 😁😃🤞🎉
