Hello, I am 47 years old and was diagnosed last month with extensive small cell lung cancer. After PET scan they discovered a tumor on my adrenal gland. My tumors in one lung are about 2cm in lung (two tumors).
I have gone through 2/3 on first session of chemo. They have scheduled me for two more sessions. I have a positive attitude (not positive outlook though because of stuff I have read on internet about sclc).
I have read posts here of tumor sizes being from 10cm to 14cm. So mine are small. Doctors said cancer is inoperable. But seemed “positive”. Positive to put in remission for a while? –I didn’t ask.
Not sure what is going to happen next. I do not want to put my head in sand or get some grandiose ideas of cure from doctor when it is not true. My mother died of ovarian cancer so I am familiar with the terrible things cancer does to a body.
Any thoughts out there on this? Suggestions, advice? Want to just say, “hey”?
