I have Emphysema and now cancer in my left lung. they say I need both radiation and cemo starting this week. I m already on 02 24/7 and meds to help with my breathing every 4 hrs. I know this treatment is going to be hard but what scares me is Im afaird they will forget about my emphysema. I know doctors tend to think only about what they are treating you for. Ive gone in for tests and had them forget about my breathing problem until I started turning alittle blue around the lips.My lungs are bad enough to put me on the transplant list for a new right lung. Now I'm off the list and have cancer in what they concidered the good lung. It was found right away because of the check-ups for tx list and its small. the doc said 45% cure just would like to hear from people who have had the treatments. Just how bad will this get?
