dave s Posted May 26, 2004 Share Posted May 26, 2004 My Dear Friends, Two years ago today I went for a chest xray due to a slight "rattle". My nightmare began immediately. "Come with me, we have your Dr on the phone and he needs to speak with you now". I was diagnosed at stage IV with mets to left hip and left 2nd ribs, mediastinal adenopathy and a 5 cm primary RLL. Of course I was told of the customary 6 month life expectancy. Interestingly I didn't believe the 6 months thing then and I still don't believe it now (although I still hear it from time to time). So for those of you who are earlier in the journey than I am: Don't believe everything you hear... I believe we can have impact on our disease and I believe the things I have done have made a difference. Keep the faith, Dave S Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
