Hello Family! I am back from a one month jag in Florida and it was just what the doctor ordered! I feel great !
Stage IV, RUL tumor, lymphs, and brain mets----Had chemo, chest/back rads, brain surgery, and gamma-knife (a couple times) all that stuff!..but...All NED as we speak. Full body pet/ct and mri scans in about two weeks, we will see, I can only live scan to scan these days. June 1st will be two yrs since dx. Only God knows how long I have.
Sad to see all the newcomers on this site.
My 50 yr old sister in law is going to surgery wed. for a very rare (only 400 new cases/yr in US nationally) cancer tumor in her sinus/right eye area, have to go through the scull to get the tumor and may lose her right eye and sense of smell. Docs correlated it on being a bartender for 30 yrs and breathing in all the smoke. We will see.
All take care and hang in there, I see some sad posts from other countrys where treatment is expensive and out of reach....very difficult situation for them.
