My Lung Cancer

Last April, had my regular checkup, Dr was happy that I lost some weight, but after all blood work, she told me it was all good. Then 4 months later, I started to feel pain on my right upper side, shoulder, it felt like muscle strained, since I work around the house so much, Keep in mind I never smoked, back in October finally I emailed my Dr. about my pain, she told me to go to her office asap. Once in the office they did an X-ray of my chest and the nightmare began. I was send to ER, they admitted me and so many tests, removed liquid of my right lung, CT scan, MRI, Petscan etc etc my diagnostics is adenocarcinoma non small cells, non-operable, January started chemo, April 5 will be my last chemo to follow up with immunotherapy, just praying for God to have his hand on me.

    @ingrid so sorry you have to deal with this new reality. It really says something about life, when we go about our business, only to be swiped into the reality of other things that can possibly go wrong. I wish you the strength on this journey, and hope through it all you hold on the spit of hope and positivity, yes, even with lung cancer. Best to you!
