My husband, age 54, has Stage IV, NSCLC -adenocarcinoma. Upper left lobe, mets to left adrenal gland and right lymph node in neck (which was removed.) He has had 2 of 6 chemo treatments of carbo/taxol/avastin. He feels great and looks good.
I had read a post where patients/family members were sending in their stage IV survival stats, but these had been submitted in 2005. It was extremely interestng and encouraging reading.
It seems that now that we are in 2008, survival rates may be increasing and I would be interested in reading these stories. Even if you post just the date diagnosed, type of lung cancer and mets, and how you are doing (or if a family member can tell us when passed.)
Thank you for sharing.
God Bless you and keep you healthy.
