Hi, I am stage 4 lung cancer with mets I've been on permetexed and cisplatin for nine weeks. I am due one last session then will be put on a drug for ALK mutation. I was wondering if anyone has ever gone from inoperable to operable after chemo even if they where told in the beginning they where inoperable. If the chemo shrinks the tumor can and will they operate? Probably a silly question but I can hope?
