Hello, well the title says it all really. Recently diagnosed. However I feel well, no weight loss (in fact weight gain) the only symptom a slight cough. My general health is good, i have no other health conditions. Cancer was found by accident when I was being scanned for another reason, so whilst stage 4 still found “early”. I start chemo soon. I’ve read a lot about this and whilst i was devastated to learn the cancer had spread, I expected it. Having read most people find out late.
However, I feel like even though I’m stage 4 there is still positives. Its not spread extensively and my doctor seems hopeful that treatment (as long as it responds) will give me a fighting chance.
Does anyone have similar stories? I’d love to have some real life stories. All these doom and gloom stats really mean nothing, it’s the experience of other fighters and survivors I’m interested in!
