Small cell lung cancer

  • By karla54

    Good evening.
    I only just joined this website, and this is my first share. I am very interested to hear from other members who may also have been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer, their journey and treatment options.
    I was diagnosed last September, end stage, with mets to both liver and bones and recently with brain tumors as well. Ever since the new development of the brain involvement, I have gone down hill fast. It affects my balance and walking. Now trying to regain my strength after brain radiation, and it’s very slow going. I would love some feedback from fellow small cell survivors.
    Sincerely karla54
