laura Posted April 9, 2017 Share Posted April 9, 2017 So.. on Tuesday I was a normal healthy 40 year old woman (vegetarian! non-smoker!) with an annoying cough. On Wednesday I became a stage 4 lung cancer patient. It's all so new I haven't even had my biopsy yet - that's scheduled for Monday. PET for Tues, brain MRI for Weds. I am hopeful the PET and MRI will come back clean, and it's just in the lungs (both of them unfortunately). So I don't know what mutations I have yet, although it seems likely that I do - being a young never smoker. So I suppose that's promising, as much as anything in lung cancer world is promising. It feels like I've joined a special fraternity with the world's worst initiation process. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
