    Just a quick hello and let you all know it is best to ask. as you all know I was a bit concerned about a few question I had about the cocern of waiting so long for treatment and believe it or not, we had a call from the Dr. himself and it seems as though as I thought the right hand didnt know what the left hand was doing and the moral of the story is If you don't feel as though you are being heard you probably aren't. Feeling much better to know we will be deciding a treatment plan on Monday when we meet with the Dr. Thanks for your time and have a good evening

      It seemed forever!!! Hubby was diagnosed in early May of this year from the tumor showing up on a CT scan. It took forever to get a biopsy scheduled -- Finally got the biopsy but didn't actually get in to see the oncologist until the end of June. Then with more scans, radiation meetings and set up, a lung test, and then 4th of July, he didn't actualy start treatment until July 9. So it was close to 2 months and it had substantially grown. The good news though is that he is going in for his last chemo starting on Tuesday. His interim CT scan looked great! Your husband can beat this thing! My husband is and he's 80! It's a nerve wracking process for both you and your husband though. Ask lots of questions. Be certain you are comfortable that he is getting the best treatment available. If you think not, go someplace else! And above it all, take care of yourself. Your husband needs you to be strong!

      Hi, my name is Martin
      I was just diagnosed 6 months ago. After the diagnosis everything was very dificult to understand. I took a while for my doctors to start my treatment (at least it looked a lod to me). You feel like nothing is happening and that nobody is doing anything to help you stop the desease. But once they start everything starts like to moving. I hope they start treating you soon, it helps a lot.

      Hi Debra 123 The day I was diagnosed the Dr. said I could start chemo the next day or wait up to 2 weeks, I opted to start the next day as I wanted to start fighting as quickly as possible. I would think that your Dr. is going with your best interests but sometimes they don't. Going to another Onc and getting a second opinion is another option. Keep on top of things and ask questions. You have a right to know Good luck and blessings
