For some reason I decided to do some more research on Large cell NET tumors today. This time I searched for 2nd line treatment. Didnt find much solid information on that but did fund a very current write up on a site (Think it was called CancerNet.org. I can confirm if someone wants the site). I do all my posts via phone and dont see away to attach a link via phone. Anyway, the first nugget I found was a much higher 5 year survival rate. Especially if the tumor is surgically removed. Very up to date info (updates dated 2020). The number was in the high 80% range, even with reaccurance. Good news. 👍 The second nugget was a great write up of late onset side effects from both Chemo and radiation. I have been annoyed that I don't feel better than I do. Based on the write up I think most of my irritating issues (shortness of breath, bowel issues, headaches and occasional nausea) are related to the radiation. It said side effects can show up 6 months or longer after treatment. You would think my Onc would have explained this to me eh? Anyway....both are good things in my mind. Dont get me wrong. I'm not having any serious issues. Just annoying. I now again have hope I will eventually feel normal. I will post the site later in case anyone wants to investigate. I know someone else has Large Cell, but I cant remember who. Peace Tom
