kaneohegirl Posted May 7, 2007 Share Posted May 7, 2007 Its official ... My dad has cancer we went to the Oncologist.... tentative diagnosis (cause the labs didnt get back till late today (after everyone went home an only the receptionist was there an she isnt allowed to read the chart ). But being a Cancer Dr he's seen so much of it. he has given a tentative diagnosis with a treatment plan to start Next week It is Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with metastisis to the Liver and possibly the Brain (we do a Brain MRI tonight at 7pm). He will start Chemotherapy next week . I was reading some... the literature says that with no treatment most live 2-5 months after diagnosis with treatment it can be doubled....some respond extremely well and the cancer stops spreading and it can hover...giving more time... it really depends.
