Hi everyone, my first post for advice. I have stage 3b non small cell in my lymph nodes. They removed my lower left lobe on march 3rd due to a tumor, I went thru chemo, and I tested positive for mutuation and was put on tarceva,which I am still on
I now have 4 treatments of radiation left out of 33.
They did a chest xray - and saw I had fluid in my lungs
and they want to possibly tap my lung next week. Uggh - just don't know if my body or mind can take anymore torture.
Does anyone know or have had this proceedure done? They said I am awake for this. I hate needles or anything so every treatment is such a big deal for me to go thru- so this is just too much to take.
Any feedback or suggestions - would be great.
Thanks. BTW - I was a smoker and I am only 45 years old. Life is so unfair! On my way home from radiation every day - I pass a group of drug addicts under a bridge in Boston, and I just don't understand Gods selection with this disease. so many awful people in this world, and I was picked. I am a single mother, 2 children 12 and 15, and have always went above and beyond to help everyone I know.
You know the saying.
God doesn't give us anything we can't handle, I just
wish he didn't trust me so much :(
