living with stage 4 cancer

Created March 10th, 2022, filed in All Cancer Types

My name is Carolyn Troutman I am 72 years old. I found out that I had stage four lung cancer in 2021. My first treatment was a pill call taggresso. before I started the pill I was on oxygen for months. I also had a very bad cough. After starting the pill my oxygen got better. I started out riding in a wheelchair because my oxygen would drop when I walk. And by the grace of God today Im not on any oxygen. I don’t need a wheel chair any more .When I first found out about the cancer I thought my life was over. I cried for days. Now I know that cancer is not a death sentences. My God was not ready for me. So after I got past the crying I pick my self up and got back in the race .I pray that this testimony can help someone else .What ever hand you was dealt Don’t give up on God. He promised never to leave us nor forsake us. .Take him at his word .Be blessed..

Hi, I'm Magoo

Thank you for sharing. I was stage 3b in September 2020. I am now in remission (November 2021). Like you, God just wasn’t ready for me yet. I can only remember crying once and very briefly with the radiologist. Lost my mom, dad and sister to lung cancer so I was not a stranger to the disease. The new treatments they have now are a real game changer for us all. Pray we all keep living our best until God calls us home.

Hi, I'm Hopeful

Thank you for sharing. I give God the glory for my cancer too. 5 years God has walked with me and been a great comfort to me. Every three weeks I have a treatment to keep me going. Just last week I found myself in the hospital with rapid AFib. After leaving I was put on three meds just for my heart. the doctor telling me they will be needed to take for the rest of my life. still in shock at the price and waiting to see my regular doctor on Tuesday. I starting crying yesterday thanking God as I read many verses on TRUST . God is helping me through the cancer and He will help me through my heart problems too. Lord use us today for you glory. May others see you in us. God bless each of you . Signed Hopeful
