stadie Posted February 24, 2010 Share Posted February 24, 2010 HI ALL I AM A 55 YR OLD FEMALE WHO WAS DIAGNOSED ON JAN31 09 I HAD A 5 CM TUMOR IN MY UPPER LEFT LOBE JUST INSIDE THE BRONCHI DID NOT SHOW UP ON XRAY OR CT SCAN. THE BRONCOSCOPY FOUND IT. IF NOT FOR COUGHING UP BLOOD I WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN. 3 ROUNDS OF CHEMO AND RADS EVERYDAY FOR 5 MO. I WAS CANCER FREE ACCORDING TO ALL THAT KNOW WHATS UP. THEY WANTED TO DO A LOBECTOMY JUST TO BE SURE. BUT MY BODY DID NOT TOLERATE THE SURGERY AND I ALMOST CROSSED OVER FROM THE CURE. AT ANY RATE IT HAS BEEN 8 MO. SINCE THE CUTTING AND I AM STILL IN PAIN BAD. LEFT BACK, ARMPIT,AND BREAST. I DID NOT FEEL THIS BAD WITH THE TUMOR. I AM STILL COUGHING UP A LOT OF PLEGHM BUT IT TASTES LIKE MOLD. MY DOC,S ALL 4 HAVE NO ANSWERS FOR ME. MAYBE THOSE OF YOU OUT THERE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND SMARTER DOCS. ANY ANSWER WILL BE BETTER THAN WHAT I AM GETTING FROM MY MED.
