I'm Bear 1 (Connie). I usually post on "Lung Cancer." But I now have new concerns.
I was diagnosed with lung cancer almost four months ago. I'm finally starting treatment (just radiation, because the tumour is small) on Thursday, September 17.
Apparently, I am too high-risk for surgery. Chemo was not offered.
I was just informed yesterday that one of my scans showed three suspicious findings (which may or may not be cancer) on my colon. I will be having a colonoscopy.
If the finding is cancer, I feel I will be sinking into depression.
I don't know how people deal with multiple cancers, and especially with advanced cancer! I felt I was lucky to just need radiation, but now I am feeling angry and pessimistic.
If I have to go through all of these consults, tests, biopsies, etc. for a new type of cancer, I don't know if I can handle it. I'm not that young.
Thanks for listening. These CCS forums are great for sharing and support!
