StrahDawg Posted March 21, 2008 Share Posted March 21, 2008 Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I found your site and I think I qualify for joining the club. My name is Steve and I am a 3yr lung cancer survivor (adenocarcinoma 3a at diagnosis). Just a brief history I was 34 at diagnosis did chemo, radiation and tarceva. Surgery right pneumonectomy and 4 nodes. I believe it was about 3 or 4 months recovery from surgery and then another round of chemo, radiation and tarceva. I go every 6 months for my check-up and knock on wood so far so good. I have a beautiful wife, 10 yr old son and recently a beautiful new baby girl that doc gave us his blessing a year and a half ago that it was ok to try. I feel great for the most part but I still get frustated in dealing with the one lung. What I mean is I don't know sometimes when I get winded working out or running if it's do to age and just getting older or if maybe I'm just not in the best shape anymore and just have to deal with it and quit complaining. I'm hoping to find some similar cases to me and hopefully get some pointers on trying to stay healthy and active. Thanks in advance and always keep fighting!
