Richard Perry Posted December 16, 2008 Share Posted December 16, 2008 This is my first time here. I'm not sure where to go to start. I have a very positive story that I'd like to share. I was diagnosed with nsclc in September 2003 in stage IIIA. I had chemo and radiation, and a lobectomy in December 2003, then more chemo. I had a mestasasis in an adrenal gland in August 2004, treated by more chemo. In December that tumor had not responded and I was started on Tarceva. Two months later the adrenal tumor was 'dying.' I stayed on Tarceva for almost 3 years with some side effects. My adrenal tumor was removed in June 2005. I have had regular PET/CT and CT scans as well as bloodtests and exams. As of my last appointment, yesterday, I have had no recurrence and I'm in good health. It's been 5 years and 3!/2 months since my diagnosis. I hope my story will give some hope. Please let me know where to go. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
