Hi Sandrab, I hope you are recovering. I can relate to what you are saying as I was diagnosed with Stage 3a cancer in August 2015. t started in my right lung, After 7 all day chemo sessions and 30 radiotherapy sessions I improved to the point of being able to walk up to 6Km a day. Then in early May 2016 I was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. That required 10 more whole brain radiotherapy sessions which stopped the growth of the tumour but wiped me out for 5 months, then the cancer became active in my right lung again. Now it's stage 4 and I am being treated with "Nivolumab" every 2 weeks intraveniously (going on 4 months now) and it has been life-changing. With the exception of some lingering fatigue I feel better than I have in 12 months. Have you asked your Oncologist about this treatment and if it is relevant to you? And yes, so important to stay positive and keep fighting!
