    3b and going strong
    It's great to hear about people doing so well! I was diagnosed in November 2009 and have had one round of 6 chemo treatments and 6 radiation treatments for a small cervial met. The cervical met is gone but the lung tumor is still there, although smaller. I feel good and am both working (have my own business) and living almost normally. I have some fatigue and some lingering problems with my nasal passages after chemo, but for the most part I feel fine. Is there anyone else who feels as good as I do?

    Not positive, but -
    Hi Sue,
    I never asked what stage I was, but if I follow the staging steps correctly I think I would have been a 3b: tumor in one lung, small tumor in the other, some lymph node "involvement". That was 2005. No idea what I am now, I'm in remission/NED since early this year.
    You'll do fine, Sue, you're young and hopefully resiliant. What kind of treatment are you on?
