I'm posting this because I have heard Jillygirls story for the first time through her journey - one which I am just starting. The tumour I have is inoperable - but have now the journey of chemotherapy. Had the first lot on Thursday, and when she says it is pretty bad - it is. The price to pay for smoking - and you guys out there need to keep me going, I feel as rough as a "bear's **rse and having trouble in the vertical postion - horizontal is better for now!! Saw the Oncologist and she says now they have the biopsy results NCLC Squamous Cell - the one associated with smoking - Surprise Surprise!! Have to have 3 more lots plus intravenous and 3 lots of Oral chemo with Radiotherapy together. I just hope I have the strength to do this - as the chances of cure are now 1 in 4. I would like to be the 1 out of the four, but only if I can hack the treatment. Its times like these that living on yer own is not a good idea!! Anyway - am gonna try the Vertical Position now and see if I can manage shower/bath - otherwise I shall keep visitors way!! I don't mean to be cruel - but if you guys want to avoid all this - don't do the fags - you don't know which drag will set off that irreversible Cancer!! Won't moan again - will just let you know where I'm at - without the gory details xxxx Veecatz
