Hi there again all, finally got my diagnosis today. Its lung cancer and it has also spread to one of the lymph nodes in my neck area as well, so they haven't caught it early 😞 They are doing more tests today on the tissue they took in the biopsy last week. Tomorrow I go in for a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy to see if anything is there as well or evidence of a primary to see where it may have started. I am reacting to the news better than I thought I would. I dont think it has hit me fully yet and I am maybe still in shock. The preparation for the procedure tomorrow isnt fun..they said they are going to do chemotherapy with me but the oncology team will discuss that with me tomorrow.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
