    I posted a question I had regarding staging and surgery for stage 1v lung cancer patients, still till this date, I have not heard from one person in response. I can only come to two conclusions: first being that my question was too hard to answer, or secondly that this is the worst support group I have ever encounted on the internet. I've been a member for some time here, and this is not the first time this has happe...

      Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been on the site, was having some technical issues with my computer, which made it impossible to access, but for those of you who are Dads........Happy Fathers day! I have been corresponding with a fellow lung cancer survior and he got me to thinking. Back in April 2010 I had a VATS surgery to remove a tiny nodule in my lower left lobe, which did turn out to be cancer. I was ...

        Hi everyone, was curious if any of you have checked out the video on the cancer compass facebook page. on curing cancer,  if so I would be interested in hearing your views. Not quite sure if it's just a sales tactic to sell the video, or are they really on to something. Hope everyone is well.

          I have NSCLC, when mine was found it was almost as large as yours, so no you are not alone. I underwent radiation and chemotherapy which did shrink it over 50%, where surgery to remove shortly followed. I now have ct-scans every 6 mos, and I too go through the same hightened anxiety you are feeling, I think all of us do on this board, it's just some of us are either not honest about it, or not in touch with their fee...

            I have non small cell lung cancer, and a believer................Your "Fighting the good fight" was one of the first scriptures that came to my mind when I was diagnosed in 09. In remission now, so keep believing, keep fighting the good fight of faith.

              Hi, I have NSCLC as well, when it was found I was the same staging as yourself, mine was the right upper lobe of my lung. I had radiation targeting the chest area, which didn't include the trachea, but I did experience the same discomfort while trying to swallow food mid way through the radiation process. The good news is it goes away quickly once radiation is completed, unfortunetly radiation does cause damage, I ha...

                Hi Rick, I have Lung cancer and was diagnosed in Sept. 09. To maybe perhaps solve some anxiety, and answer your question about the coughing episodes, I can only relate my story as to how mine was found. I had a persistant cough for quite some time which I ignored thinking it was my alergies, until one day I coughed up blood, which led me to the hospital where an x-ray revealed a fairly large mass in my upper right lo...

                  Hi, sorry to hear about your friends discomfort, I can relate to what they are going through because I experienced the same thing when I was nearing the end of my radiation therapy, the Dr. perscribed a tablet that I had to crush up into yogurt and eat before eating my regular meals, it did help to coat the esophigus so I was able to swallow without the pain. This is very common while undergoing radiation, but usuall...

                    Hi Cathie, So sorry I missed your post, it's been a while since I have been on here, the holidays have kept me pretty busy, but have been enjoying them. How was your Thanksgiving? So glad to hear your Dad is doing well with the chemo treatments, it is quite normal to feel tired after. To answer your question in regards to delaying chemo, I have never heard of anyone doing that, I would think if you did you run the r...

                      Hi, so sorry to hear about your sister's situation, I can certainly relate to what it's like to have cancer and no medical insurance. When I was first diagnosed back in 09, I was unemployed so I had no insurance, or any state benefits. I don't know if Arizona has a program in place for something like this or not, in Ca. it is called a charity program for people who are uninsured and who are financialy below the state...

                      I am new to this site, and am always thrilled when I discover another one. I was diagnosed Sept. 09 with Non small lung cancer, stage 3a. I remember feeling at that time that I didn't have much hope or many options in overcoming the disease. I went through a series of treatments....chemo/radiation for 51/2 weeks, surgery, more chemo, and now in remission!! I attribute this to my strong faith in God, and the healing powers that reach beyond what we know as visable. All we have to do is believe! I am 57 years young, and looking forward to that commercial I'm sure you have all seen on t.v............When I grow up I wanna be an old woman!
