Melody7373 Posted September 19, 2018 Share Posted September 19, 2018 Hi, I was diagnosed in January 2018. I thought I had pneumonia but an X-ray showed a mass and plueral effusion on the right side. I had surgery in April to remove the pluera on the right because it became infected. I take Tarceva and I am dong much better. The tumor has shrunk by half and other nodules are less visible. I am 53 years old and smoked when I was 15 for about 10 years. Lately, I am struggling emotionally. any encouragement would help me .I don't have much of a support system. I try to hide my fear from my daughters and husband. My daughters all in their 20s but I still feel like I need to protect them.We are very close.
