Thank you (yet again)

Thanks to everyone for all your replies, a very overwhelming response and I am really touched. I feel I do not deserve it all, it is the NHS hospital staff that deserves all the credit and fate, for delivering me from the clutches of ........

All I have done is to document my journey for the benefit of others facing the same dilemma. Having to face up to a lung cancer diagnosis is one thing, but with having an existing respiratory condition and it's attendant complications, it is completely different ball game, with being excluded from certain treatments, like surgery. To give them hope and light at the end of a what can be a very dark tunnel.

It has also opened up conversation regarding lung cancer, that has been little discussed here, so that is good too. It does need to be talked about because COPD and lung cancer can both be from the same causes, whether it be from smoking or air pollution. To get both like me, does have mixed blessings. I just hope this contribution will be of real help to others in the future which has been my sole aim.

I think you’re very courageous sharing what’s going on with you. I haven’t been here very long, or known you very long, but it’s a privilege and also enlightening to hear about your experience. And you share a lot of links to information that has totally passed me by, I’ve spent many a long lonely night reading the articles and reports you’ve posted about. So a big thanks, and wishing you well for the future.
