Newman First of all I am sorry for what brings you to this community and I can tell you that you have found a safe place to land amongst all of us. A cancer diagnosis is not an easy thing to deal with, like you said and what most people think....cancer is something that happen to other people, that is until it happens to you!
Now a little bit about me.I am 67 years old. In July I was diagnosed with a 2 Cm lung tumor and at first I thought my world was going to fall apart, I have always been a positive person and after a few days I realized that I was one of the lucky one because I had been told that at 2 Cm it meant that I was caught at an early stage and that I had a very good chance of beating this. I had a VAT lobectomy surgery in September where they removed the upper right lobe , the tumor and lymph nodes and I was told on October 8 that I am NED ( no evidence of the disease. I too was also told that I would probably need some treatments after the surgery but because the tumor was caught early I do not need any treatments....just follow up scans for 5 years.
Keep in mind that your tumor is still at an early stage and it sounds like you have more tests to go to and you are being well monitored. The fact that you say you are a positive person is going to be of tremendous help to you, try to draw energy from that positivity to get you through the next few weeks, in the meantime keep reaching out to this community and if it is something you would like to do...keep us updated with the future development on your condition. I am happy to hear that your son is still healthy and thriving after all those years!!
You are not alone in this, you have a lot of people here willing to help any way we can even if it is just to vent, chat, listen, we all care!
