Leslie Posted April 28, 2007 Share Posted April 28, 2007 Hello-- I've been lurking on this website for the past few days--inspired by all--but desperately hoping that I wouldn't have to join. Tonight my dad was diagnosed with Stage IIIb Adenocarcinoma. It is in three lobes. An earlier CAT scan indicated that it had not spread...but he is having a PET scan on Monday to determine that more definitively. I am so scared. I've looked at the prognosis rates and its not good. Can someone please provide me with some perspective? My dad is 67. He hasn't smoked in 33 years. He exercises regularly and eats healthfully. Thank you for your compassion.
