Hello, I have been recently diagnosed with stage 3 NSCLC in my left lung and lymph nodes. I am definitely up for a fight, and (rightly or wrongly) can see a life post-cancer in my mind. But the thing is - I have nothing to compare to, and just don't know what to expect. I'm initially baffled by my diagnosis, I'm 'young' at 51, have never smoked and have spent an active outdoors life, cycling 1000's of miles a year. I'm not angry (yet) and fully accept the random nature of the disease. With the distinct possibility of surgery and any damage to my lungs, I don't know what life is going to be like after. I know we are individuals, and everyone's story is different - but is there anyone out there that has returned to a physically active life (diminished or otherwise) ? Clearly treatment is the first priority, but it would help me to understand what may happen later on. Thank You.
