Well, I am waiting for the next MRI in Mar, to see if the last Gamma Knife got the last lesion.
General health stays good!
Cheers,
Geo

This new site is giving me problems. Cannot seem to load a picture, or Signature.

First diagnosed Stage IV Squamous LC Right Lung 3/06. Went thru chemo, then Lobectomy.
Squamous skin cancer 07.
Thought we were home free until 6/10: Adenocarcinoma LC in Left Lung. Had resection.
Then 5/11 diagnosed w/3 Brain Lesions. WBR & 2 Gamma Knife; waiting on final results.
BTW, heavy smoker for over 50 years. Tried to quit, but LC cinched it.

Hi there – we are still working on the Avatars (pictures). And I see you were able to put in some bio info on your profile. Which means you were able to get into the personal edit page of your profile…

So – click on your green name under where your picture should be, and on that page then click on the word (Edit) to get to your edit page, and there should be two signature blocks – the top one is for your bio that only shows on your profile page. the lower one is the signature block that will show with every post.

Take a look around the site – many people are having discussions and helping with the navigation tasks as they work around it. the best way is to go to the DISCUSS button in the navigation bar at the top of this page, and then notice it is a drop down. each of those is the title of an ‘arm’ of GRACE. So for lung cancer, you would click on that topic on the drop down and you will get a list of topics and discussions that exist there. Hopefully that is helpful!

Dr West

Geo,

Good luck on your upcoming scans. I hope you have another report with great news.

Our tech guys are working hard on ironing out the kinks here. There’s a little “one step forward, two steps back”, since it’s a very new software, and there are a lot of moving parts.
