See my recent treatment for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer, including my gnarly surgical scar to remove part of my lung. It's been a challenging 3 months in/out of the hospital.
I'm discharging tomorrow to recuperate at my sister's house. Also, here is my latest status for lung cancer treatment.
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.
At 15 years old, I had bone cancer and one of the chemo drugs gave me heart failure. At 39 years old, I had a heart transplant. Four months after my transplant, I discovered I had breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy, then weeks later and just 2 days before my 41st birthday, my Mum died after losing her battle with ovarian cancer. Then at age 44, I was diagnosed with lung cancer.
