My 67 year old Mom has just been diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer with possible lymph involvement. I am in another state and this is very hard to deal with. I am trying to be supportive from afar and still be a loving wife and mom of 6 year old twins at home. Doctor says this may or may not be operable. Lung cancer he says is only "curable" through surgery. Should she not be a surgery candidate they will do chemo/radiation and then how long does she have? Any thoughts from others and survivors?
