As with most of us on here - have been to hell and back - but am alive and keeping going. I got squamous cell lung cancer after I had stopped smoking and have had some pretty radical treatment (concurrent cistplatin and verbenaline and radiotherapy, I think it was something like that!) Have had two xrays since treatment finished late November and they tell me that I am in remission - virtually no evidence of the cancer. I used to be a nurse and didn't think that lung cancer could have a good prognosis. I get checked again next month and am hoping to have good news. The tumour was T4N1m0 or something like that. It was inoperable so have relied on the treatment. Would be interested to hear from anyone who had similar type and how they are getting on. When I was initially told - I was given the impression it was terminal and proceeded to do all the funeral arrangements etc etc. Was under the impression I wouldn't make Christmas. HERE I AM! So I continue to try to be positive and hope this gives others some hope too. It is 11 months since my initial diagnosis whoopeeeeee!
