Hello cancer survivor friends,

Finally starting to feel normal after treatments. Appetite back, gaining weight and feeling much better. Back to walking 5 miles a day and can swallow without much discomfort. I will have a PET Scan February 27 and meet with oncologist soon afterwards. Surgery a possibility or immunotherapy. Feeling blessed and praying for good news. Thanks for all your support. 💕😊

Sounds very positive indeed - 5 miles a day is very good. If you have surgery, being fit and active beforehand will help your recovery. will keep everything crossed for you.

Yes thanks - it's 9 years since my lobectomy and still swimming regularly - 150 lengths on Saturday evening!

WOW! Your story and determination inspires many. Hope I can have a similar experience. 💕

Sounds like you are on the right road. Walking 5 miles a day is (in my opinion) impressive. Fingers crossed for a good report from your PET scan.

You’re doing amazingly well! It took me a few years to be able to walk the full distance on a 5K fundraiser. Sending hope that they can go forward with surgery.

Thanks Denzie. Hoping and praying for a clear way forward. ❤️

What kind of cancer, and do you know which therapy method did you use? IMRT, PROTON, PHOTON, or other. Great that you're feeling better.

Hi Jack,

Thanks. I have stage 3A adenocarcinoma lung cancer. Direct beam radiation and etoposide and cisplatin chemo. Hope you are doing well. SteveO

Dont know what they are? IMRT, PHOTON OR PROTON? Thanks

IMRT uses photons (X-rays). Proton radiation is not as widely used, mostly because that’s the only machine a hospital may have. Oncologists rarely recommend a radiation type if it’s not available in their hospital.
