beatlemike Posted March 8, 2007 Share Posted March 8, 2007 Yesterday I read article in the news that I found confusing. It said that now they do not believe that scans help the survival rate. It was always my understanding that the earlier caught the better your chances were. It seemed to condradict itself when talking about 5 year survival rate and long term survival in general. Maybe I was just just reading it wrong but I found it confusing and like there is now sense in having checkups if they do no good at improving your odds anyway. Also I noticed on my onco note that my ct scan in june is for restaging. Why would they restage if I have been ned so far and I thought they only staged you once. Thank you. I find this site very helpful and am glad it is here/Mike ,stage 2b nslc.lung removed 08-05 along with 17 nodes which2 had been effected. Ned in all followups so far.
