Hello, I'm a Newbie here, though not new to Cancer. My hubby is THE survivor - of Colon cancer in 1990, with an early spread (chemo for a year - max radiaton) and Melanoma in 1999 (right ear lobe removed - no node involvement).

They found a spot on his lung last week while doing a plaque test, and we had biopsy yesterday ! We are in the WAITING MODE TODAY ! Is there any part of this harder than WAITING ! They need to hurry, so I can breathe !!! :-)

Even though this would be the 3rd round - it never gets easier....I actually think it gets harder - at least, for me it does.

Thought you guys might want to WAIT with us. :-)

THANKS, Wayne and Faith

I pray for each one on this board that you find health and healing.

Welcome, Faith. Best wishes to your husband and his family.

It has long been my contention that our collective theme song should be the Tom Petty tune, "The Waiting is the Hardest Part".

Take care,

Joe

Thanks for inviting us to wait with you Faith and Wayne. We have all gotten to be experts on the hurry up and wait game. I will be more than happy to sit and wait this one out with you! I am doing nothing but trying to recover from Left Upper lobe removal 3 weeks ago. This will help me pass the pain and time. I hope that you do not mind that I pray for both of you while we wait. Just nudge me you have the results. I am praying for only the best! The waiting never gets easier, but it helps when your friends and loved ones are close by!

I joined this board 3 years ago when my sister had a brain tumor removed. It took 3 weeks for the results to come back and it seemed like forever. While the results weren't good, there was some relief in knowing where she stood and in making a plan. My sister went through chemo/rad and she is now in remission.

A few months later I had some lung problems and I went through 3 biopsies before they finally decided I didn't have cancer, although I still needed a lobectomy. But I haven't forgotten the waiting, OMG, days seemed like weeks.

The best advice I can offer is to stay positive and try to stay busy. The busier you are the less you will let your mind wander to places you shouldn't go. And if you need to vent we are here for you.

Wishing you the best.
