It's good to be on the other side of the surgery and chemo.  I was diagnosed with NSCLC early February 2013.  My right lung was removed on 3/14.  Chemo started the end of April and the last treatment was August 21st. 

There are lingering effects from the mega doses of anti-inflammatory given for pain (hearing loss).  Of course, effects from chemo will be with me for some time (fatigue, cognitive changes, etc.)    However, it's over and I can deal with whatever I have to as a result of all of it.  I know what being a survivor is.

For those of you just starting your journey, push through.  The treatments will knock you down but, push yourself up over and over again.  Fight for yourself

I agree Spring2013, I also am on the other side since Feb2013. I have survived...my last treatment of any Chemo meds was then. for those starting your journey through this disease, I also want you to know you will to make it through when u feel down, sick, sick and tired just remember this is only a TEMPORARY situation and it will pass. Keep your faith intact no matter what.
