Mary first went to her doctor with shortness of breath in January 2021. Her doctor thought it was probably just an infection but sent her for blood tests and a chest X-ray. The blood tests came back clear, but the X-ray showed there was a shadow on her lung.
After a CT scan, Mary found out that she had lung cancer in April 2021. As she'd thought her problems were just down to an infection, she was completely shocked by the diagnosis.
Mary was then referred to The Christie for treatment for the lung cancer. She had 4 cycles of chemotherapy before going onto radiotherapy and a clinical trial.
Throughout the whole of her treatment, Mary filled in MyChristie-MyHealth questionnaires. This meant she could update her clinicians on her health and wellbeing between consultations.
