Living with lung cancer can elicit varying symptoms and complications. Some symptoms and complications may be more limiting or debilitating than others, while others may be more easily managed.
Comment and discuss the lung cancer symptom or complication you most wish you could get rid of.

Chest pain... the worst is always the pain.

Interesting discussion and while I agree the pain is horrible when it is there, as a spouse, for me the complication I wish I could get rid of is the depression and the feeling of inadequacy.

Having a hard time breathing in muggy weather.

The emotional part is the worst for me - knowing that I'm Stage IV and I'm not going to live as long as I wished I could have.

Agree with above posters - the depression and mental part. can be argued that they are harder to cope with... the mere acknowledging the cancer is challenging.
@ninonmoira I am sorry to hear about your stage 4 diagnosis. Do not fret away from reaching out.

@suzzie! Thank you suzzie for saying this. People often forget the psychological impact of cancer on both the patient and their family.
