Hello Kirsten
I also have the same cancer. I was diag at 27 now 20...2 years on 7 May.

I was diagnoised with Stage 3B, what stage were you>
Do you have pain from the surgery?
They attempted to do surgery with me, but couldn't as the cancer was between 2 lobes, I have ongoing pain, not sure if that is from surg or radiation or cancer? I am on ongoing tablets called Iressa? Do you knwo about those?
Are you well now?

my stage was insitu.... the surgery wasnt bad just some rib pain for awhile and the muscles around it actually had a rough time in the hospital..... but well the stuff I do is I try to work the muscles in that area and I now dont have any problems. I have heard all about irrissa and it has worked for a bunch of people on the site. I did NOT have rads or chemo so I dont know much about that.....

I was diagnosed at age 24 with non small cell lung cancer, adenocarcinoma Stage 4. I'm 27 now. Currently on Alimta and Zometa. I did well on Iressa for 8 months. Not a candidate for surgery...chemo and rads are only options. The chemo has been effective...my primary tumor shrunk in half!
