Okay my friends, this is a CALL for ALL LUNG CANCER SURVIVORS to PLEASE COME OUT COME OUT WHERE EVER YOU ARE!!

I know we have more Lung Cancer Survivors on this board then just the few of us who post all the time. I think it would be so wonderful to see more lung cancer survivors here so we can offer strength and hope to all the NEW SURVIVORS that will sadly have to join us one day.

How many of you sit here and gain strength from reading other lung cancer survivor posts? I know I do!

I don't know what to say to bring more Lung Cancer Survivors to the surface, but I know we need each other and we need to share with others that there are a LOT MORE SURVIVORS in this world then just a hand full of us. Please click onto the Reply button and say hello and share a little about your journey with us.

THANK YOU ALL.

Warm and Gentle Hugs,

Connie

I'm here - so glad I found this group and site.  I'm one of the fortunate survivors - upper left lobe - just three radiations over 12 days - but ... next time may not be so lucky.  I thank God for every day and also wonder if next time - well if it will be worse. 

I don't take pills, don't get treatments - so yes, I'm one of the lucky ones.

Still hanging around seldom have time to come here. Last year I no longer claim NED status. A 9.3 mm tumor come to light. Not at a stage to treat yet. Main challenge controlling the pain, and not giving into the fear and the negitivity. Still love to move and so often.

Hello everyone...Just joined and my first post.  Back in early 2017, I had bladder cancer of which I am cleared, but have to go for treatments till 2020 every 6 months.  From CAT scans they found nodules on my lung of which were cancerous.  From that , I had 2 operations 30 days apart to remove the cancer.  I have to go once a year for scans.  Problem is,  by cutting nerves during the operations, my voice is not there.  Was told I have to wait a year to see if my voice returns.  My question is,  has anyone had this same thing happen to them ??  If so,  what was the outcome ??  Thank you for your feedback.

Hi, Mayn.  I'm glad you found us.  I know there are some individuals on the forum who've had voice issues due to radiation, but I don't know about surgery.  I had a lobectomy almost 2 years ago and I have ongoing nerve issues in my chest.  The body does what it wants to.

Hopefully another member will jump in and have some information.

Susan.....I also have the pain in my chest.  It comes and goes.  The doctors said it would subside but in reading about other people, it could last for a few years.  They had me on gabertinin.....1800mg per day, but it didn't,t help.   Don,t take it anymore.  Not withstanding,  I am more concerned with my voice.  It is very frustrating.

I had my lower right lobe removed in June (NSCLC type IIa)  and so far I'm cancer free, though still going through the quarterly tests for a while. I was hoping I would be over the surgery by now but I still have a number area front left stomach, burning pains, and quick horrible pains all over my right torso. I am not sure what is normal and what I should bother my doctor about. The sharp pains cause me to make a face - they are very sudden - and this is embarrassing because no one wants to be around sick people LOL. I've just been taking naproxin for this and I can only sleep comfortably in a recliner. My movement is pretty much back to normal, but I've lost a good bit of muscle tone. I am not morbid about this, but I would like to be able to discuss these weird pains with people that understand and that possibly have some ideas for relief. I was always super healthy and very active and I don't really have good patience with myself..
