Following my last post when my blood results in February were still good, I unfortunately developed a chest infection with persistent cough that turned into Pneumonia. I was hospitalised at the beginning of April and they drained a litre of fluid from my lung and discovered a tumour on it. I then had a biopsy on the lump and a drain inserted and had another five litres of fluid drained. They then told me that I have Adenocarcinoma of the lungs as it has spread to the other lung and is stage 4. This has been a big shock as I have never smoked and had a clear chest X-ray last year, so it's frightening that this cancer can get this bad so quickly. I urge anyone who has ever smoked to get a chest X-ray done regularly. Anyway, I am starting chemo in a week's time but it is a terminal illness so I don't know what effect it will have on my CLL but I've been told that the lung cancer is the more serious of the two. I will keep you posted.
