Guest toyehouse Posted February 12, 2004 Share Posted February 12, 2004 Hi I'm Kathy (toyehouse) I was diagnosed withLung cancer(adenocarcinoma - nonsmoking) on Feb 21st, 2003. It spread to my liver and to my spine. I'm only 49. I have 4 children (all girls) and 6 grandchildren. Also am getting married on April 3. I just had a bone scan, got results today. There are active signals on my rib, and 2 places on my spine. I see my oncologist on the 24th, and have a catscan on the 17th. I was in remission (or so I thought) since Nov. 03. I had chemo (taxil and carboplatin) spelling may be off. Sorry! The neurologist said that it was probably there since first diagnosis, one lesion on my spine is decreased from last yrs MRI, and mostly burned out from the chemo - but not entirely. I have faith in God - know I am in his hands - have wonderful family and friends, and church. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone else who is there too, or has been there. Other survivors are so imp. to the healing process. Please write me, I will answer you back. Today was not my best day, however, I feel blessed to have had it. Love, Kathy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
