Hello. First time on here. I'm a 46 year old woman with 2 children 9 and 12 and never smoked and have been found to have adenocarcinoma lung 2b n0m0 on 29/4/16 (scan that showed it done 16/3/16 so serious delay at getting result). I'm seeing surgeon on 7/6 in Leeds. Interested in clinical trial but only really found one suitable one called ABLE trial. I had adenocarcinoma cervix 2007 and so may not be eligible. Waiting to hear back. If anyone knows of any trials or is in a similar position to me would love to hear from them. I feel like I'm on a dating website!!
We've called the cancer "frank" for the children and explained he's like a lodger who's living in my house but not paying rent and we're concerned that he's both uninvited and may move into other rooms so he has to go! It makes it less scary to use frank rather than cancer(apologies to any franks out there)
Not sure what treatment I'm heading for yet (other than surgery) but my god this is a slow process. I'm a gp so know about 2 week cancer referrals for 3% chance of it being cancer but when we definitely know it is I feel like I'm waiting forever.
I'll stop wibbling now
