Post by peter2b » Mon 08 Jan, 2018 15:35

FFS dude. Really sorry to hear that. Had way too much experience of that one with people close to me recently.

I hope you make a good recovery and have plenty to look forward to ahead of you.

Really sorry to hear this, Peter. I went through two long sets of chemo treatment nearly 20 years ago, so I know some of what you are going through. Hope the chemo goes well and wish you a speedy recovery.

If you mean by minus the lung that they removed it, then you might like to know an uncle of mine - born in the nineteenth century so in the primitive era of medicine - had only one lung after the other was removed, and he managed pretty well on the remaining one. Good luck, whatever they decide for you. Cancer is a right bastard, but you can fight it - do it!

All the best for taking that in your stride and coming through it with a great result.

When my best friend was having treatment he said 'Chemo had the big C' and 'cancer had the small c'.

Your mental approach to give it a kick in the nuts is so important!
