flesner Posted January 7, 2008 Share Posted January 7, 2008 Hi - I recently found these boards. I'm very glad you are all here...but at the same time I'm sad that we all NEED to be here! My Dad was diagnosed with 3B NSCLC in August. He started chemo and radiation right away and finished up in December. He will be rescanned sometime this week to see what progress (if any) has been made. My question is...what happens after chemo and radiation? Can they/will they do more? I'm pretty sure that surgery will still not be an option as the cancer is connected to a rib and his spine and was in lymph nodes meaning they would have to remove the entire right lung. He was a smoker for many years and would not be able to survive on left lung only. We kind of all got caught up celebrating him getting through this round of treatment we haven't looked too far ahead to try to understand what could be next. Thanks for your help.
