Andrewsmom Posted January 22, 2005 Share Posted January 22, 2005 I know that we have all talked about how there is no cure for this crappy disease but on Wednesday I went for my 3 mos. Onc appt. and he told me that when a patient is 3 years out from dx with no recurrence since dx, for all intents and purposes, the patient is cured. He also said that in his 30 years of practice, he has never seen a limited stage sclc patient relapse. So, since I meet this criteria he said he considers me cured and doesn't want to see me for 4 mos! I don't know if he is right in this but I'm going to take it as the truth.
