Hi all,

My name is Kim and I am new here. I went to my specialist last Wed and was told I have 2 brain tumors. One is 2 cm and the other is 6 mm. I have been fighting cancer for almost 2 years now. The first one started in my left lung and was removed 2 years ago this March. You can see my 2 year fight on my website. I am waiting to hear from my surgeon and a radiation specialist to see what the next move is. I am on steriods for the time being. I am also currently in chemo fighting a tumor on my adrenal gland.

The only thing I'm doing now is thinking positive and keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for listening............Kim

BTW.......my hair is nearly gone and I have not smoked for 23 months

Hi Kim

Welcome to the site. I am so sorry to hear of your current set back. It sounds like you are a fighter and will do well. Hoping your new course of treatment works wonders!

You have come to a great site. The people here are the most supportive and wonderful you'll find. Come back often and let us know how how you are doing. By the way, what type of lung cancer do you have?

Kim, Welcome. I assume you have NSCLC since you said it was "removed" . They don't so surgery on SCLC. 2 years, you 've got some fight in you. The chemo for the adrenal generally does not help that in the brain, are they planning radiation or RFA? Will try to find your web site, meanwhile welcome and keep us posted. Donna G

Hello Kim,

Welcome, to the boards, glad you found us!! :)

WOW, the two of us are very similar, I am currenly completing WBR for two small brain mets that showed up after being cancer free for 2 &1/2 yr.'s. I also had my left lung removed 0n 5/2/01. :roll:

Like your attitude, we just keep fightin the beast!!, brain mets are treatable and beatable, feel free to PM me with any questions you may have. I'm finally gonna be cutting back on the decadron, stuff made me nuts! :shock:

Again welcome, and know one should have to go through this alone!!

Ohh, 3 yr.'s without a butt on 2/18 - nothing right about smokin!! :x

God bless and be well

Bobmc- NSCLC- stageIIB- left pneumonectomy- 5/2/01

Welcome, Kim!

I read your web story, and am so impressed with your gumption. Not everyone would post their pictures like that, but I think they should be mandatory viewing. Putting a face and details on this disease may be what we need for people to say "That could be me". Nobody should have to go through this.

Hope to hear from you for a long time to come!
