I have finally completed the major part of my journey - scans biopsies chemo and radio for what was to be terminal lung cancer. My Oncologist felt she would give treatment a try on aggressive chemo etc and the odds landed in my favour, I was told that it was 19-23% chance of success. I was determined to be the 'one' out of five that wins through!! Yesterday I was told that I was officially in remission!! The tumour was 69mm x55mm with a spread of a node in the same lung. Everyone is an individual and there are many types of lung cancer in varying degrees of progression. So what I am trying to say is that even if you are given only a small chance - providing you are fit enough for the treatment - then GO FOR IT!!. When I was told in July that I had lung cancer I didn't expect to be here for Chrismas. Wow!! next plans are for a holiday.
