my first 6 mo. follow up PET/CT post adenocarcinoma stage 1 diagnosed last November is clear with no abnormal findings (except of course that missing right upper lobe) - thank you to all for your support - this is a very special community - I just cannot express how relieved I feel tonight but the wonderful thing is that I do not have to try to explain this relief to anyone here - warm regards, connie

That's fantastic, it's so refreshing to hear happy news. HOORAY for you!!

I came to this board a year ago feeling terrible after my sister's brain cancer diagnosis. I really thought she was a goner but this board taught me there is always hope, no matter how grim the prognosis is. Well guess what--just a year later she has a clean MRI too!! Cancer can be beat, you and my sister are living proof.

Many congrats on your news and thank you for sharing it.

First of all, yippee for you!

I just heard from my doctor that my PET scan revealed that the NSCLC has not spread outside the lung. I meet with my surgeon on Thursday to discuss my surgery. I having been trying to read up on staging and such, but figure it is better to wait to hear what the surgeon has to say before I get my hopes up too far. I do feel very happy and hopeful with my news though. Keep us posted on your great progress.
