Sunshine Posted October 13, 2016 Share Posted October 13, 2016 Hi all, I am was dx in March 2016 with Non small Cell Lung Cancer, Stage IV. I had a pleural effusion on my lung, bone mets on brain, spine and pelvis. Started Tarceva in April and Cyberknife radiation to my brain and spine. Most of the tumors have disappeared or shrunk by 70%. Meanwhile, an abnormal lymph node has shown up in my last PET scan and continues to grow a fraction of a cm. It was on the original PET scan but because lung cancer is more life threatening, my oncologist did not worry about it. In 2005, I had Large B Cell Lymphoma, Stage IV. After 6 rounds of CHOP and rituxan, I was in remission and stayed that way for over 10 years. I belong to a group called Inspire and really love it. Just recently, I found out about this group. If there is anyone out there with my similar lung/lymphoma cancers, it would be great to hear from you. Most days I feel great, lead a normal life and feel grateful for the advances in cancer treatments. Anna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
