Marianne1 Posted February 25, 2019 Share Posted February 25, 2019 Hi, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a 60 year old otherwise healthy person. I went to my primary doc about 2 moths ago for persistent slight cough. After chest X-ray and CT, was told I have lung cancer. Surgery was end of January. The size of my tumor was 4.5 cm. I think that in the past this would have put me in the 2A category, but now they tell me I'm 1B. I haven't seen an oncologist yet because I'm still dealing with a leaky chest tube from my surgery. My surgeon gives me the impression that I can do chemo or not, that it wouldn't make much of a difference in the long run. I don't know if I am comfortable with not doing chemo. Anyone out there have an opinion or similar experience? I would appreciate any feedback. I've been dealing with a lot of anxiety too since this all started and I need to communicate with others in a similar situation. Thank you, Marianne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
