    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    My father was diagnosed in May 2010 with stage 3 lung cancer . At the time of his diagnosis we were told he had 6-9 months to live. He elected to undergo radiation treatment only which he will complete
    next week (33 treatments). He has not had any side effects at all from
    his treatment . He shows no outward symptoms from his disease . He
    has no problems breathing, no loss of appetite etc. This goes against
    everything that his doctor told us would happen when he was diagnosed in May. I am confused what to expect in the coming months ?

    Hi Anon,

    I'm sorry to hear about your father. I know you are going through a tough time right now trying to stay positive while still thinking about what may lie ahead.

    I'm sure someone from our community that is caring for another loved one with cancer will chime in soon to offer support.

    You might also consider posting to our Lung Cancer Community to get some more detailed answers about what to expect. Or you can check out our Lung Cancer Health Center for a big selection of information.

    I hope you find help and I hope the news you find out is good! (((Hugs)))

    Andie
