Newly diagnosed with lung cancer. Never smoked. In shock....
hi all. my name is Amy. i am 56, non smoker, former triathlete, eat healthy.. etc..
had a high heart rate working out starting over a year ago. ignored it, as i thought i was just not in normal shape and i had reduced hard workouts because of hip pain. I developed a cough about 4 months ago. finally got a chest xray in late April… fast forward to now. stage 4.
first, i had no idea there was a "non smokers" lung cancer and that is could present with little or general symptoms.
i appreciate all of the advice on here about being patient- waiting is the worst! i have an A team of docs that i trust but they encouraged a second opinion, which isnt scheduled for 4 weeks.
any ideas on how to best prepare my body for chemo/immuno treatments? i am still working out and still eat pretty healthy. are there supplements , etc?
