Guest Sam Smith Posted October 8, 2003 Share Posted October 8, 2003 Please pardon me for finding this site and seeming to jump right in with my questions. I've actually been reading all of your posts for some time, and I take great comfort in your advice and insight and most of all the fighting spirit you all seem to have! Now for my questions. My mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage II nsclc and had surgery followed by radiation in 2/03. Last month, a bone scan showed mets to the spine and a rib. She started chemo today, and she says she was told she is still stage II. Is that possible? I thought bone mets automatically meant stage IV. I know that reactions to chemo vary from person to person, but is there a typical timeframe during which reactions occur? She feels fine after the first chemo treatment so I want to believe this means she won't have an adverse reaction. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
