vlnorth43, I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis.
I totally agree with you. I don’t look like I have cancer either … I guess before I was diagnosed, I thought people with cancer had no hair and were gaunt. My hair got burned and frizzy, but I didn’t lose it … and I’ve done nothing but gain weight since my diagnosis…
It’s good that your dad’s team is in watch and wait with the new regimen. I gather this is why the team will do another scan in March to see if the new treatment is making improvements.

Headdi, you are so right!! I can’t even believe I forgot to mention that one!! I think if we took a vote among people with lung cancer about what irritates them most, that question would top the list by a mile!
@headdi -Totally get your frustration, with that said we learn to move forward in educating many on how to treat this stigmatized population. Positive vibes 🙂
Thank you. After the second MRI, doctors said that there are new metastasis in the brain and lungs, not too big but still. I guess good news is that the old ones are almost gone.
@sdesmukh that is so good your dad’s symptoms have reduced- Great! Check out further cervical metastasis information-
Rest in Peace, Jeffrey. Your story is identical to mine. WOW
The most irritating to me was “Did you smoke?” If I had HIV would you ask “Are you gay”. There are lots of people that have never smoked that get lung cancer!
When I start a new treatment, I have a general idea of the side effects others have experienced. Out of three treatments, there was one with very uncommon side effects. It was weird to feel like the only person to experience something so strange, untreatable and uncommon.
