Diagnosed with NSCLC

I was diagnosed with nsclc on April 24, 2015. I was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. I had 14 rounds of a very strong chemo that effected my heart and was diagnosed with afib & a flutter. I also had 36 treatments of radiation. Then, on September 8th, I had surgery to remove the upper left lobe. After surgery they found 2 cancerous lymph nodes and I needed another 12 rounds of chemo. Last week, I had a CT scan and it showed a spot on my right lung. The surgeon is going to keep a close watch on it till July, if there’s any change he will “nip it in the bud.”
