Lung Cancer and 2019

Posted by Merry, Volunteer Mentor @merpreb, Dec 30, 2018

Happy New Year everyone! In a couple of days it will be a new year, new experiences and a new year of hope. I wish for peace, health and happiness for all of you.
For myself I hope for no new lesions and an answer for the cause for multifocal adenocarcinoma of the lung, and exactly what it is.
What are your hopes for 2019? What do you wish for?


Hi Merry- I found your blog posts when I began researching Lung Cancer treatments online and was interested in your story of survival and being a mentor for others with Lung Cancer. My mother in law went to the doctors for pneumonia treatment and when her doctors took an X-ray of her chest, they found multiple spots on her lungs. Her doctor said “it’s most likely cancer”. We were in shock. She went in for a cold and came out a cancer patient. She is getting her CT scan on Thursday and we will know for sure whether it’s cancer or not. In the meantime, my husband and I are lost. Any advice on how to get her better in regards to nutrition, exercise and etc will be greatly appreciated. We have so many questions but don’t know where to start. What is expected to follow if her CT Scan is positive for cancer? Also, can you share your story of survival?

conniechoi84 – I just wanted to add that until a biopsy is performed it is only assumed it is cancer. Since they found multiple spots on her lungs I am hoping they will do a CT scan with contrast from the neck to the thighs. They then can see if there are other spots where it may of spread to and give a better idea where to do the biopsy. This can be a long journey so hang in there and thanks for supporting your mother in law.
