New here

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the site. I I was diagnosed with lung cancer in Dec 2012 and had an upper left lobectomy in Jan 2013 - have had at least 1 scare per year since then with 'suspicious' things on scans etc. but so far, so good, no re-occurence. I also have moderate copd and asthma - yay a triple whammy :) - but doing fairly well for the most part so consider myself fortunate to be able to still do some of the things I enjoy doing. Have read some interesting and helpful posts - thank you - and hopefully will be able to contribute too in the future with something that may be useful to someone.

  • Hi Jaynair, what a lovely name.Welcome to the site. I am similar to yourself but I had a right lung upper lobectomy in Jan 2013 on.Nottingham. I sometimes have severe copd alongside of asthma but at the moment I have crept into moderate. Like you cancer wise I remain well. I have to go now, busy day ahead. Dentist, shopping & hairdresser. Rest up tomorrow. X

  • Thank you for the lovely welcome everyone :).

    I've been to the coast today for a paddle - I do love the warmer weather but it's a lot easier to tolerate with a cool sea breeze :).

    Hope you've all had a good day.

  • Hi Jaynair,

    Love the name!

    So glad that you survived the lung cancer. Moderate COPD doesn't have to progress. Just keep doing what your doing. So good to read a positive post re LC.

    Please look after yourself.
