The Exact Dates

As to be expected, whenever I tell people that I have the big C, they typically ask what type and when was I diagnosed. I could never remember the exact dates so I tell them “March of 2016” for lung cancer and “a year later” for the brain metastases. However, I recently found out the exact dates. Those dates will live in infamy!

Every two weeks when I get “infused“, the nurse prints out the Opdivo infusion order from the doctor:

The order clearly states the diagnoses dates as:

  • 3/1/2016 Primary C34.31 Malignant neoplasm of lower lobe, right bronchus or lung Active
  • 3/28/2017 Secondary C79.31 Secondary malignant neoplasm of brain Active

So now I know the exact dates, and so do you 🙂
