I am 22 and I had lung cancer. It took about 9 months for the doctor to find out I had lung cancer and after that in a matter of a week I was in the hospital and I lost the lower lobe of my left lung. I ended up in ICU for about 11 days and got out of ICU on my 22nd b-day to which I dont remember much of... I ended up with nerve damage in my left leg. Sciatic naropathy. I just cant take the whole doctor thing. All I ever get is we dont know why u got cancer and we dont know why you have nerve damage in your leg.I am sick of not having anwsers and I am sick of doctors. I have gained way to many doctors and everything in my life has changed and I have gotten used to it. Being alot slower with my bad leg and all and not being able to work and school full time...at the same time. Its been hard but my family has been there and I know I am lucky but I am not used to being broke with absolutly no money and no one to help me with that. Paying for doctor bills and well school and well I only use my cell phone for calls and well now I have a problem cause I dont have enough money to pay it so I will have to cancel it and well how I will pay this months bill I dont know. I havent been happy since well before I went into the the hospital so its been like 7 months almost. I just dont know what it is. I dont know if its the meds. I mean I keep seeing stuff on TV that has all these attornies saying that they have class action law suits against the makers of the meds I am on because it causes depression and people have commited suicide while on it and I dont know if thats whats makeing me this way....
