Hi, newbie here and first time poster, I was told a couple of years ago about a trace of cancer in one of my lungs although I was seeing the consultant neurologist on an entirely different matter. He sent me for PET scans and came up with this. With all this COVID-19 I have had to wait for the treatment he said he would be getting me on, This week I go for my third session of immunotherapy and not looking forward to it, I have got a bit worse each session not too bad just feeling absolutely rotten, my trouble is the cancer is being hidden (I don't know) by my other condition Sensory Ataxia. So I am in a quandary really as to which illness is annoying me more.
Hi Athywhite and welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear about your diagnosis and ongoing issues but I am pleased to say that you have found a safe place to find some support.
A cancer diagnosis indeed brings a lot of confusion, stress and many questions but I found talking with other people who are on the same type of journey helped a lot.
The Community has many dedicated support groups so can I direct you to our supportive Lung Cancer Group.
