    Hi and welcome. I too had adenocarcinoma in the upper lobe of my left lung. Where are you receiving treatments? And what meds are you on?

    Welcome to the site Donya. You will find a lot of info here - plenty of knowledgeable people who will be able to answer just about any question you have. I know when I was going thru treatment I would forget to ask certain things when I saw the doctor. Ask those questions here. You haven't told us anything about your cancer other than its location. When were you diagnosed,what type of tumor is it and where have you been staged? Now I will say to you what I say to everyone newly diagnosed - your best option for the most successful treatment will always be a large teaching hospital associated with a major university such as UNLV. There you will find a very knowledgeable team of specialists who have worked together extensively and see more cancers in a single year than most physicians see in their lifetime, plus the latest treatment techniques. This is your life we're talking about. Don't accept anything less than the absolute best doctors and treatments. Don't cheat yourself. This is the time when you have to be totally selfish. Don't make excuses to limit your chances. I drove three hours to get to my treatments and still make that drive for my checkups and it was well worth it. I'll be looking for more posts from you. Best of luck on your journey.
