    Hi Carol, hope your treatment was very successful. I am in remission for my lung cancer but getting brain radiation to help prevent cancer from going there. Small cell lung cancer usually spreads up. Am doing herbs and organics to boost immune and let my body fight this disease. Do you do anything specific to help you deal with cancer?

      Hi,
      All I did was take good care of myself and was kind to myself. I am a very driven person and my wise surgeon gave me the advise to "Ride the Wave". That has become my personal mantra. When I was going through treatment, if I felt tired, I took a nap. If someone offered help, I accepted it even if I didn't think I needed it. If I felt like eating something, I did. I treated myself to a special blanket and good smelling shampoo. These are things I usually wouldn't do.

      I know there are lots of people who change their diets or take supplements and herbs. I just felt like the chemo was already doing so much to my body, I didn't want to add or subtract anything else. I never really had a poor diet to begin with so I didn't see a point of changing. In fact, there was a week during treatment that all I wanted was chicken McNuggets and so I got them.

      I guess what I am saying is that I tried not to fight the process and more rolled with it. I am a very active person and I tried so hard to keep it up but I just couldn't. I would feel worse by trying to so I listened to my body and took a break. It was hard to do at first but I think it was best.

      I wish you patience during your journey and best wishes.
