It's back

Having been cancer free for the past 8 years, I recently had my yearly scan. Given a pet scan five days later, and a lumbar scan 2 days later the results show it's the same cancer back again. Had my first chemo yesterday and this morning got up feeling a new person. I hope this keeps on the same path two more seasons to go and then a further pet scan. COPD is on the back burner for the time being.

Your positive disposition is obviously helping. Hope the improvement carries on and you get rid of the cancer again. All best wishes xx

  • So very sorry to hear the cancer is back. Glad to hear you have access to fast treatment. I wish you well.

  • Hi Fred

    Just read your post from a few days ago. So sorry to hear the cancer has returned but hope chemo does the trick again! Have you stayed ok with chemo? I was diagnosed with lung cancer recently and am having daily radio therapy plus weekly chemo for 6.5 weeks. Feel a bit ropy most of the time.


  • This is my 5th session with chemo in the past 10 years. Yes I have had radio therapy 9 years back with chemo at the same time. I spoke to soon regarding this present chemo it has knocked me to hell and back, maybe its because I am 7 years older and minus a lobe?

    I was given more or less the same treatment as you regarding quantity of both it worked OK for 18 months but the cancer came back. What type of cancer do you have small cell?

  • Hope all goes well for you, seems as though it has been caught early and treatment making you feel better already.

    Good luck.!!
