LolasDaughter Posted November 1, 2007 Share Posted November 1, 2007 Well, I just got the call from Mom with her Dx. I haven't seen this but you can bet I'll be doing some research. She has adenocarcinoma with small cell characteristics. They believe it is fast growing and will be treating it as a SCLC. Per the pulmonologist, they will probably be treating her with simultaneous chemo and radiation. She has her appts with the onc's next week and chemo already on the schedule for the week after that. They are working on getting her PET and MRI done so the rad onc's can figure out their plan. For now she is a stage III but the doc explained that will go to a IV if it has spread anywhere else. We'll know for sure next week but based on her CT scan, it seems likely. I've been prepared for this (or similar) Dx, but I still feel like I've been punched in the gut. And why aren't I crying? Anyone have experience with this Dx (with the SCLC characteristics)? Any success stories out there?? Thanks to all of you - this is the first place I came after getting the call and talking with my husband. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
