ztweb Posted March 29, 2008 Share Posted March 29, 2008 My neighbor's sister was recently diagnosed, and it was staged at NSCLC Stage II. First of all...what does this mean? She told me that there was lymph node involvement in 2 of the nodes, and that they did surgery to remove 1/4 or 1/2????? of one of the lungs. This is the part I don't understand, and I hope someone can explain it... She is opting not to have chemo because right now they "have it 50/50. If they do chemo it only gives another 4%." I think this is what I heard and I don't know what that means....in the SCLC world, chemo is VITAL...is it not that way for NSCLC? Thanks guys...you are the best.
