I was diagnosed with lung cancer in Feb 1995 in Russia in the right lung. Had it removed University of Pennsylvania. Given 1-5 years to live. Started smoking again in 2001 and diagnosed lung cancer in the Philippines in November 2002. Had lobe from left lung removed and thought I would die several times. Given little chance by doctors beyond one year. Nevertheless, seemed to have adjusted but gained 50% body weight and almost died again but lost back the weight and feel good now. I suppose no way to give life expectancy on this.
