Hi everyone. I had my right lower lung removed because I had a baseball size tumor that was stage 2 cancer this past March. It's been a long haul recuperating but I'm cancer free. I had my first CT Scan and it was negative - there were no lymph nodes involved or cancer outside that portion of the lung. My oncologist and I decided that Chemo or radiation at this stage in my life (70) would be of a benefit since there is no cancer. I guess my question is, what are the chances of the cancer returning if they got it all? In 1988 I had Stage 4 melanoma on my left hand and that was removed by surgery and in 2001 I had a right mastectomy.
