I replied to a post here this morning for the first time. I've been diagnosed with lung cancer in April this year and as you can imagine find it hard to come to terms, a fit healthy non smoker, mum to a active 9 year old no symptoms other than a swollen lymph node in my groin, which turns out to have nothing to do with anything. The cancer has already spread to my bones so was a massive shock when the spealist told me this. I'm undergoing chemo and am on the third cycle. One more of this type to go then I think it's a maintenance chemo for a while. I feel a bit of a fraud at times as when I've got over the chemo effects I feel ok. Just to say, I'm not giving up or giving in, I'm trying anything they doctors can give me and here to stay as long as possible. Going for my ct scan next week so that should give me some indication of how things are going. Just hope to stay as well as possible as long as possible. Thanks for listening to my rambles, it's just nice to let things out a bit , and not burden family and friends. Christine.
