Prayerful Posted October 16, 2021 Share Posted October 16, 2021 Hello. I’m the spouse of a lung cancer survivor. I am seeking support from a community who understands. My husband was first diagnosed with NSCLC in May. 2019. He was Stage 1B, 4cm. His upper right lobe was removed. He had 4 rounds of adjuvant chemo (as a precaution since he had some visceral plural (sp.) invasion). Two years later, July 2021, a 1.4 cm tumor was picked up on a scan near where they stitched his lung from the previous surgery. He had option of surgery or radiation. He chose surgery again. The tumor was the size of a pea and they scooped out the size of a quarter. He is choosing not to do adjuvant chemo this time. Also , his cancer has no biomarkers. My question to the community is where do we go from here. Does this recurrence mean we should brace for more.? Are there cases of recurrences that never come back a third time? Does the fact that he has no biomarkers mean there are no treatment options beyond chemo. Looking forward to hearing from the community. Thank you for listening. I’m scared.
