Hi sisters,

Just wanted to find out how many of us are in our 30s.

Do you have husbands and families? I found that aspect particularly hard while I was doing my chemo- keeping up with the needs of everybody else while I was doing my treatments.

Now I'm in the radiation portion and school will be starting in about 10 days... yay!

Say hello if you have a moment!

Hi ladies...I'm 2 years out from finishing chemo. My treatment team has scheduled a chest CT (routine to follow up on tiny lung nodules that were on my original and post-chemo CT - but were unchanged) for next week. They've told me not to worry, it’s just routine,but how do you not? Anxiety has set in and I feel like I'm reliving those early days/weeks post-diagnosis...

Hi Countrygirl- sending hugs and best wishes your way. The fact that the nodules are not new and have not changed should encourage you. I guess anxiety will always creep in everytime we are assessed. Hoping for a good outcome for you!

I will also be doing baseline scans after completing radiation.

Thank you, Palesa...I’m ashamed to admit, that I’ve put way to much energy into worrying about it.


Hugs to you as you finish radiation and move forward with your journey. Light and love

Countrygirl, I also had some nodes seen on my lungs in a scan last year. It turned out to be scarring from pneumonia that had me in the hospital (caught it a week after finishing chemo!). They show up to this day and sometimes the size changes very slightly. My doctor said this could be because I’m in a slightly different position from the last scan, the nodes aren’t perfectly round so at different slices it can catch a wider profile, and always the human factor as a technician is the one who clicks the 2 points of measurement. I always worry they will tell me these have changed, but I try not to spend my emotions on what if’s. If it turns out to be bad I’ll worry the because the what if’s can lead you down an entirely made up world of worrying you don’t need. My advice is to repeat what you do know, facts, and positive thinking (I hate when ppl tell me this but damnit it’s true). Good luck
