Hi Friends,
I always like reading good news here. It gives me hope. Maybe my report will help someone, also. I recently advanced from stage 3 to 4 and had a thoracotomy 8 weeks ago to remove 2 lymph nodes in my chest that were adhered to an artery. After a few rough weeks, I am healed and my pain is gone. The best news is this week's CT showed no active disease. Now to step off this rollercoaster for the next 3 months. Feels weird to have stage 4 cancer but have nothing detectable. I'm sooo thankful!
