  • Hi Kev,

Glad you've found this site tho it's not a " club" you'd want to be a member of voluntarily. There'll b a Community champion along shortly to welcome u n probably give u a few  pointers. Meanwhile, why not add something more  to your profile so that ppl know where you're coming from?

There'll b folk in this group who've had similar experiences to u. I just spotted your post but am just another member, who happens to have a different type of cancer ( kidney)

Did u know the helpline' s available if u want to talk things thru? 0808 808 0000. Open 8am till 8pm, - just in time!

Fear of the unknown is the worst thing. Once we know what we're facing, we find the strength to deal with it.

Welcome Kev, although so sorry you find yourself here.  Not surprised your head is spinning.  Guess you've had all sorts of tests.  I found the first few weeks a complete whirlwind and then once I knew the plan it seemed an eternity before it was implemented.  What point in the journey are you?  Do you know the type and stage yet?  Do you have a treatment plan yet?  If you let us know where you are at there are lots of helpful people on this forum that will be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction.  Welcome aboard.

Seems to be taking forever doesn't it . I was told that I had lung cancer 3 weeks ago ....I'd already had a biopsy on a lump in my neck which told them that . Waited 2 weeks for Pet scan...my first one got cancelled as well. I'd had a bit of a cough and felt run down but it was the lump in my neck that made me go to the Dr's. What symptoms have you been having. ..if you'd rather not say then no worries. Take care Jayne x
