Lady Salt Posted June 6, 2007 Share Posted June 6, 2007 Hi everybody! I count myself lucky I came across this website while trying to find answers/comfort/hope in the internet. Didn't find any of the above until I came across you. What I have read in here is absolutely amazing and beyond anything I had hoped to find. My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer last year in September. He was complaining of shoulder pain (having it treated by a chiropractor) until I sent him to my family doctor and the X-Ray showed a mass located in the apex of his upper right lung. Long story short: a CT scan and a lung biopsy later determined a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the lung. At the beginning the prognosis didn't look too promising (the mass was 4 - 5 cm in diameter), but after an extremely aggressive radiation/chemotherapy treatment (together, 25 days of radiation while receiving both CisPlatin and VP16) the tumor shrunk to the size of a blueberry and the doctors were able to remove it along with the upper lobe of his right lung. The surgery was the 22nd of January. I love him so much! I am so very, incredibly, absolutely scared. And he needs me to be strong, confident, calm, supportive...I guess I just wanted to find a place where I can be weak, and cry, and get a hug or 2. And I am certain I found it.... I am happy to be here! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
