I finished radiation to my left pleura two weeks ago yesterday. It was absolutely a miserable experience. Relentless nausea, frequent vomiting, severe rash, hungry but the thought of food was disgusting, extreme fatigue...yada, yada, yada. This week finds me feeling much better. Still run out of energy pretty quickly but seeing marked improvement. No real firm plan for follow-up scans at this time. They are all putting their heads together and will let me know. Just praying that it worked!
Hope that all of you are hanging in, doing well and enjoying the beginning of Spring!
Warmly,
Joanne

How wonderful to hear from you! I'm so glad you are finished with treatment--it sounds like it was horrible for you--I'm so sorry that you had to be so miserable. I'm very happy to hear that you are on the rebound now, but hope you'll take it easy for awhile and let your body recover. I pray that it worked too! Please let us know how you are doing as time goes on and when those follow-ups are planned. In the meantime, I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers! Take care.

Hugs--
Martha

Have thought of you often over the last weeks and wondered how you were doing. Hope that each day just gets better and better for you. Hugs, Marilyne

Hi Joanne, Thank you for updating us. I hope that you will continue to feel better. I don't know if you received my PM, but I visit the Inspire sight and have learned some things about lung cancer, as you know I had a lower right lobe lobectomy for a 11 mm nodule that was a squamous cell cancer. I know that there are many survivors on the inspire sight, that have used many different types of treatment to remain stable and in remission. I am praying that this treatment you had will work also, and you'll not need any further treatment. Lori
