wolfclantree: This is the best therapy - I had surgery 1 year ago followed by 3 RI treatments. I had a clean scan October 2002 and go back for the next scan April 2003. it is a looming date in my mind. My wife and family have gone on with what we do on a daily basis and I try to do the same. it is extremely hard to not think about the upcoming scan. As far as everyoneelse is concerned I have moved past the worse part of all this and I just can't convince myself of this. i have never tried the CSN and just reading the words o so many people who I know feel what I am feeling is my therapy. I pray God will lead me through this and this is the only one I can truly coubnt on. I pray for others who are going through the same situation, for healing and strength to get through this. God Bless You.

Hi Michele,
Hope your treatment is going smoothly. I had the same type of cancer over 4 years ago and would be happy to share the experience with you(and tell you the things I wish someone would have told me). ~DJ

Well, I'm right behind you. My surgery is on Tuesday. The docs are'nt sure if its cancer but I'm having at least one lobe removed and possibly both. I too will have to take the radiation treatment, so I'm not sure what that will be like. I talked to my neighbor who went through this 15 yrs ago and she said its not that bad. You have to take the meds daily, but other than that she has not had any problems. I guess I'll just wait and see for my self. Anyway it would be nice to correspond with you & to share experiences and indight.
