jls4913 Posted May 25 Share Posted May 25 Hi All, Not technically "lung" cancer, but here goes... I'm in my 30s and was recently diagnosed with a stage IV invasive thymoma. It's a rare tumor of the chest and it is currently invading my right lung. Currently on chemotherapy right now to shrink the size of the tumor before surgery, but the surgeon thinks I definitely need to lose my right upper lobe. On my last CT scans, there were also signs of it invading the other lobes of my right lung...so it is very possible that I will need to have my right lung removed with the pleura. Leaving me with just my left. I've been a jogger pretty much my whole life, jogging every day. I also do weight lifting and try to "keep in shape." Knowing that I'm going to probably lose my ability to keep this up is quite devastating, but I want to live. Any other survivors with 1 lung here? Mind sharing your experiences? How's the recovery and are you able to still keep an active lifestyle? Thanks, J LouT 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
