Okay, you are a loved one has been diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Stop! Take a breath! Relax and listen! I am not an expert on LC but, I have several years of experience having it! First and foremost, do not assume that it is a "Death Sentence"!! You will find here at this site that there are many here who have been living with LC for a very long time and many who have LC and eventually die of something not related to Cancer.
Yes, it is true that you will find some here that have died from their cancer but, if you visit a site for car enthusiasts, you will find many that have died from car accidents.
LC is no fun, to be sure but, the treatments and protocols are not necessarily the nightmare that you have heard about. I believe any average person willing to fight can tolerate them. I have! Stay off of all the miriad of internet sites dealing with LC and visit sites like Grace, Inspire, and Lungevity. Here you will find everything that you need to know. There is expert opinion and years of experience here and very many compassionate and feeling people who know what you are faced with.
Congratulations on finding this site!!! Let the battle begin with many on your side.
P.S. Anyone that has had a Thoracotomy is very knowledgeable about the surgery. Anyone that has had two or more, Is an expert!!!! Feel free to contact me if I can help you prepare for surgery. I am an expert!!!!!
God Love you,
