Guest My time Posted July 10, 2006 Share Posted July 10, 2006 I am a 44 year oldmother of two. Son and daughter. Married 22 years to a wonderful devoted family man. I had Hodgkins 24 years ago and was cured. I recently had short of breathe and went to ER and had a plueral effusion positive for adenocarcinoma lung cancer stage 3B.Recently two spots on on hip and neck. The hip was radiated. The cancer was caused by the high doses of radiation i had years ago. I am going to my 5th chemo taxol, carbo and avastian. I have had to stop work and I am so lost and scared. There are not many stats on post radiation cancer and I can't have surgery or traditional radiation, my body will reject it. I try to stay up beat and positive and the Dr have only giving me positive news. I am so afraid of not seeing my kids grow up they are 11 and 12.I feel like a financial burden and I am so tired sometimes I can't do simple things. I have been reading your stories and I pray and hope I will be a survivor. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
