Hi, Dave, 43 years for me. Actually, I think there's a good chance something besides smoking caused my LC, which is the same type as yours and also on the right side. You're starting on the same chemo combination that I had. Mine was once every 3 weeks, and I'm still on the same schedule, except since February it's been Avastin only.

If you'll put your diagnosis/treatment/test results info in a profile at the bottom of your messages, you can save yourself a lot of repetitive typing. Click "My Profile" at the top, scroll down to "Signature," enter/update your information, scroll further down to ensure "Always attach my signature" is marked "Yes," then click "Submit" at the very bottom.

Hi Dave. My Dad was a Boston Police officer.

Welcome. I started with chemo and radiation and then was able to have surgery (then more chemo) and I soon will be celebrating 10 yrs since diagnosis and no evidence of disease ( our friend and buddy NED)

Keep us posted.
