Hi, it is so great to have a community to share with. All the ups and downs of this horrible diagnosis! It breaks my heart to see my Mom go through this! She was diagnosed with non-small cell, squamous cell lung cancer. It will be 2 years in May. She had lobectomy, chemo, and then scan showed a mass again. Then sterotactic radiation and more chemo. She was clear for awhile. Then scan in November should another mass. We went to MD Anderson for second opinion. They felt she was not able to have surgery. Had biopsy, showed no cancer cells, but they said they felt they did not get enough cells. She does not have appetite and has lost some weight. So, they advised, as did her oncologist in Cape Coral, FL. To start Opdivo. She will be on her second treatment this week. Praying this will work for her with no side effects. Thank you!
