I received the preliminary results of my biopsy today. I have stage 3A NSCLC. Further testing of the specimens will help determine the treatment plan and if the lung cancer is primary, which I believe it is. My hospital is Walter Reed, but I am going to ask for a referral to Johns Hopkins for a second opinion on the treatment plan.
Since first posting here last week, I have been on the board several times and am grateful for the people who share their experiences and hope with others. I hope I can make a contribution as we fight this disease.
Best wishes to all and thanks for the information you share. This is a membership card I did not want, but I am glad this support network is available. 20 years ago there treatments were inferior to today and there were no support gropups on the internet!
