For people living with incurable cancer only
This group is aimed only at people who have had an incurable diagnosis themselves, as we have had feedback that they would like a safe space to share their feelings openly among themselves.
If you have a loved one with incurable cancer, you are very welcome on the Online Community as a whole, but we would ask that you respect the wishes of people with incurable cancer and not post in this particular group. Instead, you will find really good support in the Carers group, the relevant cancer type group and the supporting someone with incurable cancer group.
Thanks so much. Yes, Hubble with me with note pad and pen!
Appointment was good. They are hopeful that I have the mutation as you said John because I’m a non smoker and I’m female and I’m young(!). So I am in for a biopsy on Sunday for op on Monday home hopefully Wednesday maybe Thursday.
So, feeling more positive and hoping and praying that I’ve got the right sort of cancer and it reacts well to any treatment
thats sounds positive and good they are helping you so quickly.
good luck for Sunday and Monday.

Hi Dance in the rain
That all sounds very encouraging. I was reading the other week that the fastest growing group of people being diagnosed with lung cancer is young (which is defined as under 50) women who’ve never smoked. It’s partly because there are fewer older smokers these days.
I do hope you have the “right” kind of cancer and you get a good response to treatment
What is a community champ?
Hi dance in the rain.
Its good you’re feeling more positive now. When you know something is being done it makes all the difference to how you feel. Good luck with the biopsy and op.
Dance in the rain, I'm so pleased you had a good consultation and they seem to be on top of things for you! It's far better for them to say to go in for the biopsy on Sunday for op Monday or Tuesday than we will be sending a date in the post for a biopsy, don't you think? It still gives you enough time to sort things out for your hospital stay, but it's not too long that you are left dwelling on it for weeks!
I expect this is why you are feeling more positive because things are moving fast for you, which is great! I'm sure, as you say, you have the right type of mutation or they wouldn't be suggesting a biopsy!
Im sure we will all be thinking about you and waiting to hear how you get on once you are home! Take Care
