Headstands at and with the radiation oncologist, oh my! :)

Today was my first appointment with my radiation oncologist.
It sure was interesting!

My wife and I learned more about my situation, what the radiation aspect of my treatment entails and is planned..
and more, like the fact that the radiation will help with having my bones repair themselves and become less fragile again.
And that my mental state is much better than anyone expected, and that I am indeed strong and determined to fight my crab until it dies!

Update on my lung cancer status

Hi all :)

My wife and I had the oncologist appointment today.

News are not good, from what we know so far.

PET scan results will determine how dire it is,but as far as it has been determined, it is highly likely that my lung cancer will not be curable, nor surgery fixable.

So the likeliest scenario by far is that the most they will be able to do is buy us time...
I could survive for a few years, likely 5 max, possibly much less if the PET scan shows more cancer in other places.

1st sunrise of 2015

It is a new day, a new month, and a new year.  In the strange world of cancer, we celebrate many things,  treatments being finished, successful surgeries, the love and support of family and friends. anniversaries of years after diagnosis  and sometimes our celebrations are sad when we are celebrating the life of a loved one who has lost the battle.   Cancer is one of those things that strikes fear just in the name, but  cancer also summons great strength and enlightenment in those who are fighting for their lives.  Each day is a blessing to all of us.

How it starts for me

I just learned yesterday that I have lung cancer. We don't know yet what stage, or if there are cancerous cells in other places than my left lung and 11th left rib, with a cancerous mass on the rib (inside, on my back, left of the spine, roughly an oval 5cm by 3.5 cm - 2 inches by 1½), and a pleural effusion.

I am 44 years old, stopped smoking 4 ½ years ago, and thought I was in pretty good shape, all things considered.

Hello

Hello

My breast cancer experience using laser surgery

It was this time last year that I learned I had breast cancer.  No "deck the halls" Christmas 2013 - I was numb, but as we are nearing the end of 2014 and I reflect back on my year, it was time for me to share my experience with laser surgery.
