At age 45, and never having smoked, somehow I contracted lung cancer. Part of my lung was removed along with several suspicious lymph nodes. Then I had chemo and radiation treatments. Three months ago bloodwork and x-rays looked great, and I was told I had an excellent prognosis. I've been in remission over a year, but that may not be true anymore because of inconclusive results of a bone scan done 10 days ago. I'm scheduled to have a CAT scan and MRI, then see the oncologist again. Any tips for keeping my spirits up until I see the oncologist again will be appreciated.
