Returned lung cancer

Recommended Posts

  Just want to know how to cope with this outcome! Second time around and only one possibility, surgery is not possible unless I live on a ventilator for life. One procedure left and I doubt I'm a candidate! I'm terrified and only fifty seven years old!

its basically a death sentence and I'll know the timeline by the end of next week! I trust in God and I'm an extreme fighter. Any suggestions from anyone?

I'm not sure that anyone copes with lung cancer regardless of treatment possibilities.  The disease flat beats on coping.  I had 4 treatment failures in 5 attempts - a 200 batting average - in the course of 3 years.  I also had a 6-month timeline but somehow one treatment came along that worked and I've lived for 12 years.

I think we need to know more about your disease (type - stage - past therapy) to have suggestions for you.  Take some time and fill us in.  We might have some ideas for you to consider.

Stay the course.
