My surgery to remove part of my lung was postponed until late May to allow me time to heal from my recent blood clots and to start my blood thinners.
I'm scared, but I'm also ready to fight this cancer.
I was diagnosed last week with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). I'm told of all the types of lung cancer, NSCLC is the "best," most treatable type of lung cancer.
A 4 year update, since the day I was list on the Heart Transplant Wait List. "As of today at 4:26:05 CST I'm officially on the ♡ Transplant List! I'm excited because I've given blood, sweat & tears since mid-June to this process, so I'm relieved. I'm also fearful. Mixed emotions-today is a big day. I'm so grateful to you for your ongoing support. I need it!"
My survival guide of how I overcame bone cancer, then later a heart transplant, breast cancer and the death of my Mum from ovarian cancer all within the same time period. I relied on some strategies to endure this time in my life. May my experience possibly lift your burden in some small way.
As a heart transplant recipient and cancer survivor, I have experienced intense physical pain and prolonged mental anguish. I have a few tricks I use to endure pain and I will share them with you. I hope it brings you some measure of relief.
