New-- Pancoast Tumor 13# removed-- 3 yr clean


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a 47 year old woman, mother of two, who three years ago last month had a pancoast tumor a little over 13 pounds removed from my thoracic cavity after radiation and chemo -- cisplatin/vp16. I had my surgery at NIH, chemo locally (Rockville) I lost my collarbone, half a lung, five ribs, and a good deal of weight. BUT I am here, and I have survived what was a grim prognosis. There is hope in strange places, all.
