    Oh No (Diagnosed): Was diagnosed on 10/1/12 after concern of unintentional weight loss for about 1 year. I'm active and eat healthy so I thought perhaps the weight wasn't difficult to lose, yet people expressed their concern. Finally, went to the health clinic at workf for a physical and a CT scan was ordered since I was a smoker. Scan revealed enlarged lymph nodes at the end of the windpipe (about the size of a golf ball), and a trace in the lung then a bronchoscopy and a mediasteinoscopy which confirmed small cell lung cancer, but the good news is it is limited.

    Side Effects (Nausea/Vomiting): emend and other meds helped - no vomiting, thankfully

    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): fatigue wasn't terribly bad with chemo, but when adding radiation to the mix - it intensified
