Re: New to the Board
I am new to this board. Never thought I would EVER be in a lung cancer board, I have a history of breast cancer, I had a recurrence last summer. Stage III... This yr, I had some problems, pain, shortness of breath, persistant cough... I was almost finished with my Herceptin treatments, Had follow up scans, PET and Cat Scans, showed nodule on my upper left lung. I NEVER smoked a day in my life. I had two lung biopsies done... My surgery is scheduled in 2 weeks It was caught early, only 1 cm I was told. So that means I am stage I The Surgeon will also remove surrounding lymphnodes . This is so new to me. Lung cancer. I dont know anything about it, My mom was very heavy smoker... she died from lung cancer in 1993... Dr seems to think that I have 2nd hand smoke... So I have so many questions, so upset, afraid.......I will ;be back..... Thank you for your time.....
