Guest diana Posted April 1, 2003 Share Posted April 1, 2003 I was directed to this site by another member- went to an online support group looking for...guess what? ...support! And I found it. I was dxd 12/02 with adenocarcinoma of left upper lobe. Had chemo and radiation and had the left lung removed on3/5/03. Have to have 3 more chemo rxs starting in 3 wks. Have been home now for 2 1/2 weeks- so far the biggest problem is this emotional roller coaster I find myself on- I have always been a very active and positive person- now I want to cry all the time. Have others been affected the same way? My poor husband is at his wit's end he is so frustrated- wants so badly to help but does not know what to do, and I am at a loss. I get so angry at myself for being so weak and giving in to this depression- Dr has me on Paxil anyway. I would appreciate any help. I am also anxious re what I will and will not be able to do- breathing is fine and pain is minimal so those are good signs. How long does it take most peopleto recuperate from this surgery? Thanks- Diana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
