My partner was diagnosed with Stage IV NSCLC early Dec 2005. It has spread to her lymphatic system and her heart. There is a large mass in the mediastinum which is inoperable as well as a tumor in her neck.
She is on taxol/carbo and after 4 treatments, the tumor in her neck is getting smaller which is great news. Even so, the oncologist has given her about a year to live.
I am devastated and would greatly appreciate hearing from any Stage IV survivors with similar symptoms.
Many thanks in advance,
