Exercise after surgery

Recommended Posts

"ernrol"]Ned,

This looks like a great web site, but I really do not know what I am doing. Maybe you could clue me in. Ernie

Hi, Ernie, good to see you made it over to LCSC. Best discussion board website for lung cancer I've found so far. With a full 6 days experience under my belt, I'd say the first and most important thing for you to do is go to your My Profile link, scroll down to the Signature block, and write a chronological history of your diagnosis and treatment. In Preferences select Always attach my signature: "Yes." Then every time you update your profile it will automatically attach to every post you've ever made here. You can upload a photo with the Avatar feature.

These personal summaries are very useful for anyone browsing the board, and there is an outstanding search capability too. If I'm looking for people's experience with, for example, taxol, I can go to Search, type "taxol" in the top block, change the Display Results button to "Posts," change the Return First choice to "1000," then hit Search. Many pages of posts will appear in short order. With 1000 characters displayed for each post, you may have everything you need right there, but you can also right-click open a new window and see not only that entire post but also the complete topic thread it's in.

You can also send Private Messages, which are similar to the internal email feature of CSN.

There seem to be a few features that are disabled or incomplete, but what's here now has worked for me every time without a hitch.

Aloha.

Ned,

I finally got a post on this sit and even was able to post my Story over on the My Story site. So far so good. They have so many different forums, but I guess I will figure them out. How are you doing?

Hi, Ernie, doing okay. I see you've got this site under control -- I read your various posts and believe they will be very helpful to newbies and old-timers alike. Another handy feature that I didn't discover until recently is the "View posts since last visit" link which appears after you log in and are on the LCSC Forum Index page. From that list you can right-click open a new tab or window to read or reply to any of the new posts that look interesting, then return to the main list as needed.

The LC Survivors section has some good exchanges, and since there's no minimum time required to be considered a survivor, I'm writing a little blurb on my mental approach to the NSCLC Stage IIIB/IV diagnosis I received just two weeks ago. Some friends have wondered how I can be so calm with all this happening so unexpectedly, and I've wondered too, so I'm working up some ideas that a few others might find interesting if not useful. I'm going to title it something like "Thoughts on 'incurable,' 'inoperable,' and other scary words" but that's as much as I've done so far. Maybe I'll write a little more after dinner -- the wife has gone to our favorite nearby Thai restaurant to bring home spring rolls. Yum!

Aloha,

Ned,

Thanks for all the info. I have a newspaper article that I think you would like to read. It’s about what you think and how it affects your health, not just mentally buy the physical things that can happen. Just stay calm and think positive. I will e-mail you the article regular e-mail, because it is a PDF file scanned in.

Ernie
