Hello, this is my 1st time joining a chat room ever.
Yesterday we found out my mom has non small cell adenocarcinoma and we are waiting for the PET results to find out the stage. Because the CT scans showed there are lesions in her liver and that it has mets to the lymph node we were told this code be stage IIIB or possibly IV. The largest mass in her lung was measured at 9.2 mm in diameter. We are just beginning our research and would really appreciate it if anyone out there can share w/ me any successful treatments?
My mom is beautiful and has a lot to fight for. She's young, a non-smoker, and is in excellent health. She has had a persistant cough and chest pains for 1+ year and requested x-rays from her doctor but he said it was most likely due to her blood pressure medication. Needless to say, the doctor finally agreed to a chest x-ray after she started to cough up blood and that's when they found the masses in her lung and noticed 2 lesions in her liver.
Any help/advice is much appreciated!
