Hi guys. Well I've been through the 'fast track' After the scan with contrasts, the bronchoscopy etc etc. Have large tumour in left lung, something in right one and as a Brucie Bonus, something in the middle for diddle. Not curable, maybe controllable with chemo. Said that I didn't want chemo and oncology doctor suggested that I may be suitable for other drugs-non chemo. I wasn't suitable -so chemo or nowt. After weighing up the pros and cons again decided that chemo not for me. Actually the very tasty Italian doctor didn't give me a hard time about it-in fact he said that he didn't blame me. I committed the big error and asked for time frames. Without chemo six to twelve months and with it maybe an extra year. He did actually back peddle after finding out that non chemo tabs not suitable and said that he had known people to survive 7 years with chemo. I wobbled a little-but I'm a quality over quantity kind of gal. Daughter is freaking-but then she does work for a pharmaceutical company. Was trying to continue working-but in light of all this news have decided that I need to make the most of every day and the cough was making life difficult. One lady told me that I had asthma advised her that I wished it was asthma
