cindi o'h Posted January 13, 2005 Share Posted January 13, 2005 Hello friends. I am just wondering how much stress plays into the development of lung cancer. I was in the most stressful year of my life before I was diagnosed. I was in a car accident and could not work for over 7 months. I had a closed spinal cord injury and was battling surgery or not, no income, pain, lack of any income, horrible side effects from medications, and a lousy lawyer for a lawsuit to try to help recover some of the financial damages. I have never felt so emotionally stressed in my life. And this carried over to the physical stress too, I know. I had just been back to work for a few months when I was diagnosed with the lung cancer. I am not saying that it was not there before...but, I am wondering how much the stress may have played on the rapid progression of the illness. Does anyone else have these ideas too? Were there unusual stresses in your life before diagnosis? Thanks. Cindi o'h Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
