Mon, Feb 11 10:31pm · Going off of Xanax in Depression & Anxiety

I was taking one pill at night for sleeping. I never used it for depression. It stopped working for sleep so I started taking something else. I stopped taking the Xanax right away with no ill effects. Can I ask why you are coming off of it? We’re you using it depression? When in doubt, always talk to your doctor. Good luck and stay strong

Mon, Feb 11 7:41pm · Asthma attacks in Lung Cancer

Ok. First off I will call my doctor tomorrow but has anyone experienced asthma attacks? Like 15 of them in a day. They are short lasting. I use my inhaler, I have my nubulizer. I have had a horrible cold. I could contribute these attacks to the cold but I was having these back in December. I was going to call my doctor tonight and she would tell me to get to the hospital but we are in for 10-12 inches of snow. This gal isn’t driving in that crap. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any feedback

21 years?? Wow. If that doesn’t give all of us NSCLC hope I don’t know what would. When I started the chemo in 3-16 I had everything done. In January of 2018 my oncologist said that she has run out of treatments for me and that should except this and go do my bucket list. Well you know what I wanted to do with that bucket. Anyways I call the National Institute of Health in Bethesda Maryland and was able to get in on a trial. At my 7th treatment my team of doctors told me that the 2 large tumor on the right side had decreased by over 60% but there are 3 little ones that were continually getting bigger. So of that trial. I live in Wisconsin. To make that trip every 28 days of 11 hours, needless to say I searched for someplace closer. I am in the beginning steps to see if Mayo can help me.
Wow. 21 years. That is fu””omg awesome

Hi everyone. My name is Liz. I have nsclc. It’s coming up to 3 years. My oncologist originally told me I had 6 months to live. Haha!’ I am in between trials. Waiting for Mayo to review my medical history and hopefully find me a trial. Look forward to chatting
