Dead end

3 weeks since I told my story. No one responded yet. I probably won't be around by the time anyone reads it or responds. Sorry to bother 😢

Re: Dead end

Thank you for noticing me. I was beginning to think that nobody even saw my post, much less wanted to respond. I  feel sad knowing that other people are going through the same thing as me. I get a lot of information about different treatments etc. from reading all the comments. 

 The chemo and radiation therapies have my cancer in check temporarily, as my cancer is the type that Always comes back, so I'm just waiting for the next round of bad news any day. I'm done with chemo and radiation for now but I still have immunotherapy every 21 days, and I think that is causing neuropathy because of the severe pain in my legs and shoulders. My team or doctors can't seem to figure out why I'm having these new pains. They're just guessing that it's neuropathy but the medication for neuropathy is not helping. Are there others on this site that have these pains? Hopefully people will see this post and comment.

Re: Dead end

Hi Andy,

I just saw your post.  I'm so sorry.  I was just diagnosed on Monday; waiting on CT scan on Friday and waiting on call from Cancer center - now 2 days and no call for appt yet.  Guess they aren't in a hurry but I am.  I have to know what's going on asap.  They found 2 cancer cells in fluid drained from my right lung and that's all I know other than the dr said it was ADENOCARCINOMA  so anything with carcinoma in the word can't be good.  I look at all the info I can find and it doesn't appear that I may be here very long.  I just retired on June 1st and had so many plans and everything has gone right down the tubes.  What is your cancer?  I'm new to the site and still trying to get around.  My love and prayers to you.  Debbie1957
