Small Price to Pay
I was told last week that the aggressive radiation treatments had
completely destroyed my left lung but I am still cancer free.
As my radiation oncologist told me today, John Wayne lived and had a great career with one lung. There is no reason why I can’t do the same. It will take a little while for the right lung to pull the weight for the left lung so until then I will still need to use oxygen when I walk. I won’t need it sitting or commentating races and to me that is the main thing. If given a choice between cancer or losing a lung I would say that I got the right end of the deal.
