I have Undifferenciated Large Cell Carcinoma of the lung and throat diagnosed on April 1, 2002. Need support as family is 1300 miles away. Are there any discussion groups that I may participate in. Would someone please direct me. Need someone to talk to.

    I had large cell carcinoma or non small cell cancer (both the same) in the lung and 2 lymph nodes.One on each side of my esophugus. I had 24 chemo and 33 radiation treatments in 4 monthsI will be 1 year in remission on Nov.1 2002.You can send a letter under emotional support or you can stay right here.If you find you're not getting letters back from here then go to emotional support. Good luck!!!

    Hi, I'm Betty Jones and I had large cell carcinoma in my right lung but mine was contained. They just removed a little better than 1/4 of my right lung and I did not have to have to have further treatment. That was in 1990. I also had adenocarcinoma in my left lung in 1987 and it was contained also. They removed 1/2 of my left lung as well. I'm doing fine, and you can see that it has been several years. I would be intrested in hearing from you. Sometimes things are not as bleak as they seem. My email address is [email protected]
