OneLungedWonder Posted September 6, 2008 Share Posted September 6, 2008 Hi, I'm Carol Ann from Brooklyn, NY! I am a lung cancer survivor out of treatment since July of last year, and officially in remission since October of last year! I call myself the One Lunged Wonder for a reason which you can probably guess . . .I was diagnosed in January of last year with NSC Squamous Carcinoma Stage IV, but, because of the persistence of my pulmonologist to get a PT Scan to double check that staging because he did not feel right about the high staging, I was restaged at IIIA or B, don't remember which right now, but anyway, I became operable! I was operated on in February of last year, at which time my entire right lung was removed, after which I had to undergo followup chemotherapy! I am not working now, I am on VA Disability Pension, but I am trying to live life after all of this to the fullest that I can, and I recently joined Gilda's Club here in NYC to fill some of the void that has been left not working! My computer is one of my best friends now , but it took me a while to regain that friendship after the cancer experience! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
