Hello, I'm new here

Hi all. I'm new here. Just found this forum and hope it will be a place for me to share.

I have Stage IV Adenocarcinoma with a Malignant Pleural Effusion. I was diagnosed in June, 2006. Given 2 -4 months to live. So far I've had the upper right lobe removed, three types of chemo therapy plus talc pleurodesis.

I'm in home hospice care now but hoping to enter a Phase II clinical trial at Moffitt in Tampa, FL.

OK, that's me. Hope to meet folks with something in common.

Re: Hello, I'm new here

Hi Robert,

I just wanted to acknowledge your post and say hello, even though I am not in your situation. How are you feeling? Congratulations on defying your initial prognosis regarding how much time you had left to live.

Feel free to talk here if you need to. Wishing you all the best.
