Recommended Posts

Hello, Im a 29 year non-small cell lung cancer survior. I was diag and had my surgery on 12/11/03, I had my whole left lung removed and I went thru chemo but the cancer went to my lymph nodes sand so they put me on Iressa and then they tried radiation. Im still on Iressa and it has kept me stable for the past year. This cancer thing sucks!!!

Welcome Miss Di, so glad you found us. I suppose you have been wondering around the board and exploring what is available here. Please read David P.'s story under "My Story" He posted it a while ago. He was a teen when he had a lung removed. Hope you are doing well. Are you doing any exercises to increase your lung capacity? It is possible , especially where you are young. Keep us posted.
