chrissy63078 Posted September 27, 2006 Share Posted September 27, 2006 Can anyone else tell me if they have ever heard of this. My mom was just diagnosed this month with NSCLC. She is 47 yrs old. Smoker for 30 yrs. They found one 1.7cm mass on her left upper lobe, no regional involvement and 1 small mass under her armpit in her lymph node. My mom is very healthy, but because of the cancer metastazing to her armpit lymph node they are diagnosing her with Stage IV. I have read that stage IV is inoperable, but because they feel that the masses along would be considered early stages they are going to do VATS surgery on Oct. 5th followed by Chemo 4 weeks after. Has anyone else every heard of this. Please help!!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
