Hello everyone - new on this site, and new to everything!! Was diagnosed about three weeks ago with inoperable lung cancer (lower right lobe). Unfortunately has spread to lymph nodes especially in neck and stomach. Have had initial CAT scan and cone biopsies on the largest node in the neck.
I think me and my husband are both still in shock - I'm 72 but have never had a day's illness in my life, 'cept niggly things, so still reeling.
I have only been able to have a telephone consult up to now due to this dratted virus but will see him in his clinic this Wednesday. My GP has been supportive as has the lung nurse at his clinic but I feel so desperately alone, and frightened doesn't even begin to describe it.
My husband has been wonderful but every five minutes he says "you've got to be positive" ….. I know that but it's hard when you're so terrified.
Can anyone suggest things I should be asking the consultant on Wednesdday?? Don't know where to start!
Sorry this is such a long post but it's a relief to geet some of it off my chest.
Good luck all
