Hi Dianne. I was fortunate enough to have the option of surgery to remove adenocarcinoma of my right upper lung. The surgeon took out the upper lobe and some lymph glands which are associated with that area. The prognosis was good with no signs of any cancer spread in the lung or to any other parts of my body. It wasn't recommended that I have chemotherapy, so I guess I was lucky to be diagnosed in Stage I of the cancer. Two years ago I lost my brother from small cell cancer in the lungs which had travelled to the brain. His cancer was inoperable and he went through chemotherapy and radiation therapy. If you have the option of surgery then I recommend it. Recovery has been slow, but sure. I have follwed up my surgery with herbal remedies and plenty of antioxidants. Pre surgery I boosted my immune system with herbs using the recommedndations of my chosen naturopath. I have a healthy diet, using a lot of alpha and beta carotene enriched fruits and vegetables. Deep relaxation therapy and counselling also helped me cope with the diagnosis of cancer and facing my fear and the impending operation. Please feel free to contact me on my email if you need to talk further.
