Anyone else stage 2 cancer? What's the possibility for to be cancer free?
I think you have a very good chance at beating this. Fight fight fight.
My mum had stage 2, had surgery and is now having 'just on case' chemo. She's doing ok xx
christie, I was diagnosed with stage 3 and that was 9 years ago!
My Lord God bless!!
I'm stage 3a and I am currently in chemo. I hope in 9 years I can say that
I am four years at stage 3a. Always worried that it is back or coming back.
I was Stage 4. I'm cancer free!
What kind of cancer did you have I have stage 4 lung cancer that has met my bones and my oncologist said without starting chemo back I would live about 2 months
Dana Geiger NSCLC adenocarcinoma with a ROS1+ gene mutation. Was treated with 6 rounds of Cisplatin, Avastin, & Pemextrxed. Now on maintenance therapy of just Pem & Avastin.
That is such encouraging news! How long have you been cancer free?
9 months. Was diagnosed in August of 2015! I killed it
I intend doing the same. .... Patiently waiting for my next scan to confirm
I was 2B simply due to the size of my tumor, 6.4 cm. I had no lymph node involvement or pleural effusion. My surgery was May 1, 2014. Thank you Father! Start now eliminating sugar and eating vegetables for most of your food in your diet! And prayer, lots of prayer
I was originally 2 b due to larger tumor 5.x2.3 surgery. Had it in two of the 3 local lymph and none in other ones. Chemo and then new nodules after so now st. 4 and I'm able to have since last May Afatatinib for my targeted mutation! ( which we knew about on original diagnose 2015) but not able to give due to early stage then. Now I think it has changed and possibly first line treatment.
Is it believed sugar is bad in People who had Cancer removed?
Cancer does not feed on sugar. Insulin contributes to cellular overgrowth. It's not sugar directly. Another place insulin's effects on cellular growth are commonly seen are the "velvety" patches of skin in acanthosis nigricans which is an indicator of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia.
Im a Type 2 Diabetic and trying to control that. So I'm trying to rid myself of lots of sugar. It is a work in progress. My Blood Surgar and my recent A1C was not ridiculous. My Doctor was concerned.
My mom nsclc too.. Stage4
Found out today that my mother in law has squamous cell carcinoma stage 2.
Same as my mum xx
That's what I am. Finishing my 3rd cycle of chemo, hopefully this week or next, depending on kidney function tests
Stage 4 and have no active cancer #23 opdivo! Praise God
So happy to hear this for you!!! May I ask if U has SCLC or NSCLC?
The oncologist I go to in New York City told me you don't necessarily go by what stage you are in as there are other factors involved.
I heard this too
I went from stage 4lung cancer 17 month ago to ned
Me too! Took me 13 months
I didR. S.O. AND OPDIVO
I read all comment regarding nsclc stage4. It's giving me a hope 4 my mom
I was diagnosed with invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma stage 2a on November 4,2016. I had upper right lobectomy vats surgery and 4 rounds of cisplatin and alimta chemo. I am currently Ned. (No evidenced of disease). So yes you can be cured.
Not really is not a cure for cancer, only treatment.
If a person does surgery and chemo and radiation and the cancer is gone from their body, is that not cured?
That Cisplatin did a job on my kidneys & hearing!!
my feet as well. Ringing in the ears never stops
Agree with you. Nothing they can do for it.
That's what's happening to me. Cisplatin and Genzar
There are lots of factors that come into play. I was lucky enough to be a candidate for surgery and had my left lung removed Jan 25/16. I am now cancer free. I still get my regular scans and will for 5 years but currently there is No Evidence of Disease and the BC Cancer Center in Vancouver considers me cured.
I also noticed where I go to one of the best places in New York City for lung C- they don't use the word remission, the seem to use " no evidence of disease "
I think it is because that is the term used by the person reading the scan. When my doctor showed me the results that is what it said. I am not sure of the definition of remission - I believe they mean the same thing but remission always gives me the feeling it can come back so not sure if NED is for when the cancer is removed surgically.
There is always a chance the cancer will come back which is why doctors now use the term no evidence of disease. There is no cure (past stage one) for cancer only treatment
Diagnosed stage 2 in 2011... Currently NED.
