My dad met with his oncologist today and my parents had lots of questions as to whether or not to do chemo. He was told that they "removed all the cancer" (tumor and lymph nodes - all lymph nodes benign except one and were removed February 17), but it is likely the cancer will come back? WHY????We are just so confused becasue if there is "no cancer" and even if we do chemo, why is it probable that it will come back? Then dr said that alot of people cant finish the chemo (they r giving him heavy stuff dont know what yet) for 16 weeks once a week. So, if cant even finish the chemo and the cancer is "likely" to come back, why even do it? we are so confused. My dad is being treated at Sloan Kettering and there is a study that is coming out from there that suggests no chemo for anything less than stage IIIB? Such conflicting information. Has anyone with lung cancer ever lived long enough to just die from natural causes? Is this just a time bomb, waiting for the unimaginable? This just seems like such a bad dream.
