richinsdakota Posted July 2, 2004 Share Posted July 2, 2004 Hi all; My first post here...moving over from intro board, since the dx is in...NSCLC (adenocarcinoma). Consultation with Dr. Tues. for options.. If I may; could I ask the burning questions that I suppose we all have, and you have all had...? Before going into surgery, which Im sure will be urged, is there a quick way to get a 2nd opinion, without repeating tests, and traveling afar? Has anyone opted out of surgery, in favor of alternative treatment...like RFA, Thalidomide trial, or anything else? The stats Im seeing on adenocarcinoma suggest survival rates beyond 10/12 months are very low....are folks beating these odds by any long term survivals these days? I know this is depressing subject, and sorry if my questions adversely affect anyone....myself, I want to know all the straight facts, and welcome anything you wonderful folks can offer to me., as some have already done on the into board. I look forward to sharing/caring with you all....thx. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
