New Member-Survivor

Recommended Posts


I am a stage 1 survivor. Looking to connect with others. This is the first time I have ever joined an online support group or any support group for that matter. Took me a while to even make this step. Hope I am on the right forum.

I was diagnosed this past July and had surgery in September. Left my job in January, just feels like being on a roller coaster of emotions.

Hi Debra

Let me the first to welcome you to a great site. Alot of members here have been on the same rollercoaster you feel that you are on now. I joined here in 2007 and "talking" with others that had walked in my shoes helped me more than I can say. I had lots of questions and the members here answered them from their own experience.

Like you I was stage 1b and had surgery. That was in 2007 and still all clear !!! I had my upper left lobe removed and followed that with 4 rounds of adjuvant chemo.

So tell us more about you Debra. Did you have chemo ?

Welcome Debra! Congratulations on being a stage 1 survivor - it is always such a shock to be told you have lung cancer, but if you do then the earlier you are diagnosed the better. As Bruce said, this is a wonderful site to come to.

I hope you will come by often and let us know more about you.
