I'm so sorry I haven't been posting. Salls I didn't get any mail I would always answer. I don't know what happened there.
Well I am stage four now. My cancer came back in my lungs and spine
I had been going to Moffitt. I called them many times telling them I was having trouble breathing and sever pain in my back. And I kept getting put off for weeks at a time. When I did see my Dr there she said my breathing problem was not caused from cancer dont worry about it. And I must have hurt my back and should get PT. Then I finally seen a pulmonologist a few weeks later I Did not like him at all. Even though I passed out taking the oxygen test he said I didn't need it... Anyway no one was helping me anymore there. So I had to go to the hospital one night 911 actually that happened twice,
In the hospital the Dr's told my family to call Hospice I would not live 3 to 5 days is what they gave me. Then One night in walked Dr Tang from Fl cancer Specialist. He woke me up and ask to sit on my bed and talk to me. He said if I would become his patent he was sure he could save my life. I went to him and he did what he said he would do. He put me back on chemo aggressively. He literally pulled me from death. I have been in chemo now for going on 4 months weekly. I will be on some kind of chemo for the rest of my life.
The good news is I just had another pet-ct scan and as of now there is NO ACTIVE CANCER!!
Dr Tang saved my life. Even his colleagues didn't think he could do it..
I'm doing pretty good now. I hope to get off oxygen all together soon. I will have scar tissue in my lungs forever. If Moffitt had helped me when I first called them I would not have the scar tissue now. So My fight continues. It was a hard ruff but I'm up on the paved part now!! I still come here and read a few times a week. I pray for you all. I have been worrying about Kat alot. Has anyone heard from her? Bless you all your always in my thoughts and prayers. Take care Kay
