Every pain!

Last updated: December 2021

I have inoperable stage 3B lung adenocarcinoma. I have been through chemo, 6 weeks of radiation, and one year of immunotherapy. During treatment, I had a small stroke and I suffered from pneumonia. Depression caused me to wonder what was next. These are a couple of things I have learned!

What I've learned

First, I will never be "back to normal". No one is ever as good as they were a year ago. We all slow down a little naturally every year.

Second, every pain might not be from your cancer. You had them before but didn't pay any attention to them. Realizing just these two things have made my days bearable.
