Its been a while since I posted on here, have been a busy bunny!! Just to give some hope to you guys out there, I have had quite a journey with the Big C - diagnosed 22 months ago with non small cell stage 3a. Unexpectedly I am still here to tell the tale. My cancer was inoperable, so had pretty heavy chemo and radiotherapy. It seems to have worked and I remain in remission at my check last month. i know each person is an individual and respond differently to the treatment. I sincerely hope that someone out there reads this and believes it is possible to survive. I have no idea what the future holds, and am curious to know if anyone knows what the recurrence rates are and in what time span.? I fully intend to be here after the 5 year survival period - but I also like to be 'prepared'!!
