Does anyone use the chat room? I'm trying to find a good place for my mom where she can talk to & ask questions about lung cancer. She was diagnosed a few weeks ago with lung cancer. She's had a bronchoscopy & PET scan (which by the way her first phone calls they told her everything was fine & now they keep calling with more & more bad news). I was just wondering if anyone used the chat room or if there was a certain time people got on to chat?? Thanks!

Hi, My name is Ernie, and I'm a 4 year survivor of nsclc. My experience with the chat rooms is that there can be many people there at one time, and it was confusing for me to use them. My personal web page is "Grateful Survivor", if you care to view it. You can contact me through that web page, also.

funny, i keep going to the chat rooms and also find no one there?? Maybe we should all just jump in. I'm a fairly new member here. Diagnosed 05/2005 with nsclc. Just finished chemo with avastin and will just be on avastin every 3 weeks now.

Hello!

I use the chat rooms a lot and find that you just have to jump in and type any questions or have a "voice" in the discussions.

It seems to me that there is ALMOST always someone there and all of the folks have been very friendly and supportive. Some of them clearly know one another after long months of chatting, but they are very welcoming to new people.

Just tell your Mom to get ready to type fast if there are more than 4 or 5 folks in the room.

Hi. Like your mother, I have tried to use the chat room numerous times but to no avail. There never seems to be any chat going on. It is very frustrating when you are looking for information, and there is none to be found. I was first diagnosed with a small mass on my right lung on 5/27/05. From there is was scheduling biopsies for that lung, doing the bronchoscopy, and bone and head scans. The whole process took almost 4 mos. On Sept 6, they took the lower lobe of my right lung out and I am in recovery as we speak. I would be more that happy to speak to hear via email. It is a very scary and hard subject to discuss and there were lots of tears on my end. I turned 46 2 weeks after my surgery, so I was considered young. I am out of work and I do check online oftern. Please, tell her to write to me. (It does get better...I would have never thought those words would come out of my mouth!)

I was also diagnosed in May of 2005. There is a great site you should go to. It is the Lung Cancer Support Community. The best!!! Lots of people to talk to and experts to ask questions of.
