    Hi, I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis and subsequent health issues concerning the COPD, I can understand your anxiety and concerns about being well enough to have treatment. I am not familiar with COPD, or the adenocarcinoma, but I do understand about the breast cancer, as I was diagnosed with that in 2015.

    I hope that you are beginning to, or soon will be, seeing an improvement in how you are feeling physically. I am sure it must take quite a long time to become stronger. I hope you have some good support around you to help you, other people to take the strain so you can concentrate on building yourself up.

    I know it isn't easy by any means, but try not to worry too much about future treatment plans and dates of where and when. When you next visit your Drs or oncologist, take a list of questions with you, of everything you need clarification on. There are others here with lung cancer too, and others with breast cancer. When you are in a place where you know the way forward with treatment etc, please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have if you are still unsure about things. But for now, concentrate on getting stronger, it is one day at a time, step by step.

    You are very welcome here, I hope you will find it a place of support and friendship, everyone is very understanding. Thinking of you,

    Lou x
