Danny Myers Posted January 9, 2019 Share Posted January 9, 2019 I have had lung cancer for over a year. And it's been stage four for almost nine months. I was seventy two when my cancer was diagnosed . I lost my husband of fifty years just three years before that. His first bout with lung cancer was treated aggressively. It payed off. He had five years of good health until the cancer reappeared in his esophagouse . This time treatment didn't work and he passed away. When I was told I had it I decided that because it couldn't be cured and because I had no one to support me through treatment as I did my husband and because I am old. I decided not to have treatment with traditional Chemo. They tested me for other forms of treatment that help some but they were not right for me. So I was resigned to die in months. Well it's been well over a year since I was first diagnosed with lung cancer. I have experienced fatigue at times but up until recently my health has remained pretty good. Recently I have had more coughing and more chest pain but am still able to function. I never see information about people who are not taking treatment Am sure there are others out there ColleenRae 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
