Update on my cancer situation …

I last wrote about my cancer situation on November 18 in Booking my biopsy That was the last you heard about my experience with lung cancer. Sorry if I have kept you in the dark, but the fact is that I am also in the dark. I had the biopsy on November 28, but that seemed to only confirm that I, indeed, have cancer. They were able to give me no further details on my condition. Instead, I now have an appointment with an oncologist on December 20.

The one positive occurrence seems to be that I am booked for two scans, brain and body, to determine the extent of the cancer. So, it seems that they will finally be able to ascertain the extent of my lung cancer. My scans are booked for Monday, December 12.

Now you know everything I do about my cancerous condition. Sadly, not very much and not very positive.

I asked the surgeon who did the biopsy if the fact that I have been living an active, healthy life with a lot of physical exercise worked for me in this situation. She said that my healthy condition would make it possible for them to attack the cancer more aggressively.

That is the extent of what I know as of right now – more than a month after first learning that I was likely carrying a cancerous mass in my left lung.

As they used to say on the radio when I was a kid … stay tuned.

    The scans and waiting for results is the scariest part. I’ve had my fair share of them while battling cancer over the past 4 years. A positive attitude and living as if you just got a second chance in life, is a great way to get ahead in the battle. Best of luck and healing to you. The road can be terrifying, but you never have to go it alone.
