Hi. My name is Mike, I just turned 58 and was recently diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer that has metastasized to the lymph nodes and adrenal glands. I would like to post a question on the Chemotherapy Forum but I believe I should introduce myself - so Hello!

Justin - Than you. This has been a nightmare since I live alone and am having truly frightening side effects. But all the best to you and may I add I've visited the UK and enjoyed every moment. I think I could live quite nicely in the Scottish Highlands! Warm Regards,

Mike

It is frightening I know what your going through I've had a pretty rough time myself what sort of side effects are you having, I'm glad you liked visiting the UK I've been to the States a few times and my wife and me had a fantastic time a couple of years ago in New York 

All the best Justin

Hi, Mike and welcome from a former New Yorker (Rockland County). Sorry you have to be with us. I've had chemo and radiation before starting on a targeted therapy for my particular gene mutation. I'll look for your question under Chemotherapy.

Welcome, Mike. Sorry that you have to be here, but it is a really good forum. I too have NSCLC with spread to lymph nodes amd adrenal gland. I’ve been treated with Keytruda and a long course of radiation since August last year, and am doing pretty well. Hope your treatment is working well.

Hi Mike, and welcome aboard. I’m a former NYer, too. Not gonna lie, it’s very scary to get started on this journey. But, this is a great place for support and learning about lung cancer. There’s so much new research happening in the field right now. Hang in.
