Newbie, but oldie

Recommended Posts

Hi , my name is Mary and I am 68 yrs young. I was diagnosed with NSCLC ado carcinoma in sitiu  in 2015. I had a lobectomy done Right lung. No chemo or radiation was done at the time. When I went for my 6 month check up another nodule had appeared , it was malignant. I had a course of chemo and radiation, and it was in remission for a year. Now I have malignant plural effusion, and the outlook is very grim. Has anyone else ever faced this.

Unfortunately yes. I had 4 recurrences after “successful” no evidence of disease (NED) treatment. My outlook was also grim. But I’m still here and come February I’ll have survived 15 years after diagnosis. 

So there is always hope especially with targeted therapy and immunotherapy advances against adenocarcinoma. 

Stay the course.
