Hi there. My name is Lorna and I was diagnosed with lung cancer in October 2013 after spending a week in the hospital with a collapsed lung. By the end of the month I was back in the hospital having my lower left lung removed. I began chemo in January 2014 and had an issue with treatments affecting a preexisting bone disease. I was placed on steroids to help manage the pain, and it helped some. But, when I finished chemo in March I was so weak I could barely push myself up from a reclining position on the sofa. In addition, the steroids had caused me to gain nearly 50lbs. I joined a gym on May 30th and have been dedicated to getting my body and my health back :)
