purplelady47 Posted March 15, 2006 Share Posted March 15, 2006 Greetings everyone! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and have finally decided to post. What a supportive and courageous group of people! Although I am not thrilled to be here (major understatement), I am very glad to find a community of wise folks with whom to share my journey. I was diagnosed with Stage IV NSLC on December 9, 2005. I have had 4 Carbo/Taxol treatments and my CT scan after treatment #3 shows about 30% shrinkage of the tumors in my lung and mediastinum and stability of the mass in my adrenal glands. YEAH!!! I've had minimal side effects from the treatment so far - fatigue and muscle/joint pain. I've gained about 12 lbs and feel good most days. I am a single mother of a wonderful 27 year old daughter (married and living in Baltimore) and a great 10 year son (I adopted when his parents were unable to care for him). We live in FL and I am blessed with a large support network of family and friends. I stopped in the chat room last week and look forward to participating in the group. Thanks so much for being here!
